BATHROOMS - ELF shows you how

We have created two very different bathrooms to give you an idea of what can be achieved in a relatively small space.  Below we tell you how we did them, but first, take a look.


Click on any highlighted word to see full details of any particular item.  This bathroom in chic black and fuchsia, measures just 6 1/4" (16cms) by 9" (23cms) deep, and includes a doorway for greater realism.  We started by painting the walls with plain matt white household acrylic paint, which will give a durable finish.  We then used black marble tiling for the floor and shower area.  The shower is the new shower kit by ELF, great for creating a wet room shower anywhere!  We used one of the rails from the set of towel rails to create the contemporary rail on the shower screen.  The remaining pieces from the set are the long rail at the back of the room (with the towelling robe - complete with slippers) the ring by the vanity unit, and the loo roll holder (not visible in the photos).  

The vanity unit is an ELF Vibrant vanity unit in bright pink (other colours and a matching tub are available). We've used a simple mirror above the unit, and placed a couple of items on the ledge - liquid soap, a jar of cotton balls and a comb that is free with the styling brush, which is sitting on the shelving unit. Below the unit are the new ELF glass and steel bathroom scales.

The stunning chrome and glass units are available in two versions, either of which would be perfect in any bathroom (and if you have a large room, you can use more than one to great effect). Also on the shelving unit are a box of boutique tissues, jars of nail varnish, hairspray, perfume, deodorant, and a tin of Nivea, and on the top shelf a box of surf washing tablets, and a pack of bandages. 

The toilet in the photo is unfortunately no longer available, but we have a range of other toilets (just put "toilet" into the search facility on the right hand side of the website) and we have placed a new pack of toilet tissue on the cistern, and an ELF loo brush on the floor beside it. And finally, to complete the look, a steel pedal bin next to the shelving unit.


The second bathroom is very different  -


This bathroom creates an air of calm relaxation and despite only being 8"(20cm) wide and 9" (23cms) deep, seems more spacious than it is.  We built a shallow false back wall, and created a small niche to hold a set of ELF tea lights that illuminate the room with a soft glow.  We used sandstone flooring on both walls and floor to give a harmonious feel to the whole room, and created a luxurious sunken bath, with shallow steps leading up to it.  The bath in the photo is no longer available, but the same effect can be created with our acrylic bath.   An ELF heated towel rail completes the bathing area.

The toilet is from the economy range of wall hung sanitary ware, and we've added an ELF aluminium loo roll holder and a china loo brush

The vanity unit is an ELF EAZY vanity kit with the addition of a bowl by Carol Mann (these are available on request), and above the unit is a new chrome and glass mirror.  We added a toothbrush holder complete with four toothbrushes, some toothpaste, and men's shaving cream and deodorant, along with a tiny packet of gillette razor blades.

Finally, a set of ELF steel bathroom scales sits ready for use by the steps.
