Our Recent Works

DARK, MOODY AND GORGEOUS

An idea for those of you with skinny bathrooms.

Despite being less than 2 meters in width, this bathroom boasts a functional and well-rounded design. By pairing a dark tile with black tapware, a modern and moody scheme is produced. This makes the white bath act as a feature, without the use of something like a feature tile which would increase the costs and in a small room like this, could make it feel overcrowded.

ENTERTAINERS DELIGHT

A bathroom and kitchen renovation make have made this home feel brand new.

The brief for this home was modern, simplistic and to include the customers favourite colour; green. By incorporating the green in the bathroom, it balances with the timber finish vanity, rather than overpowering the subtle tones in the kitchen.

This renovation is a perfect example of how spaces can be crafted to feel unanimous, while still having their own individual flare.

Featuring Functionality

NEW BLUM MERIVOBOX DRAWERS

Despite the brands focus on aesthetics, functionality is paramount.

Blum has released a new modular drawer/pull-out system that is entirely customisable. The system comprises of a platform which has interchangeable sides, offering varying heights and designs to the unit. It also allows for changes in the side profile of the drawer later on, without having to fully replace it.

As a client this means the selection process will be forgiving and diverse.

Ambia-Line Drawer Inserts

Kitchen Drawers installed By Urban

Messy drawers – no more.

Ambia-lines drawer inserts offer a versatile organisation option for not only kitchens but bathrooms too. This range includes but is not limited to cutlery trays, bottle sets, sprice racks, knife holders and even a foil/film dispenser.

If you would like to include this in your renovation, please speak to your designer so that we can incorporate it into the design.

What is a Wels Rating?

Wels Rating Image

We all have seen a WELS rating before, but what does it actually mean?

A WELS rating is an indicator of the water efficiency of the product. The higher the WELS rating, the lower the flow of water, making it more water efficient.

Although you would assume a lower flow of water would decrease the water pressure, low flow taps are aerated, which increases the water pressure.

We recommend purchasing products with a WELS rating of 4 or higher for maximum efficiency.
