Modern farmhouse with Highgrove Bathrooms – Architecture and Design
A professional builder with over 22 years of building experience, James Mason built a modern farmhouse for his family on land that he had purchased after selling their family home.
Spending the last two years living in a caravan on their developing property, James and his family have now moved into their new dream home – The Dirt Road Home.
Highgrove Bathrooms delves into the process of the bathroom, ensuite and powder room build from scratch and takes a look at what goes into the creation of a modern farmhouse design.
Step 1: Planning
Starting from an open block of land, James has built from the ground up. He first planned the spaces; given that it was a new build, he had more flexibility about placing his items and determining the size of his bathrooms. The Dirt Road Home features a generous luxury ensuite, a functional and sleek main bathroom and a spacious powder room.
Step 2: Product selections
Knowing the dimensions and desired layout of the home, he moved on to product selection. With a modern farmhouse look maintained throughout the home, the bathrooms feature clean whites, with a splash of navy, high ceilings and open light-filled spaces. You will also find bold matte black tapware and shower fittings throughout the entire home to add a modern edge to this delicate design.
Product selections for the ensuite include a walk in shower to provide an open and spacious design. The main bathroom has the required functionality and style for a family, with a freestanding bath, walk in shower with a rain showerhead for full body coverage and an undermount basin. With no windows in the space, the powder room features an LED mirror as an extra source of light. It also uses a wall hung vanity in this smaller space to add the illusion of more room. For design consistency, matte black tapware, shower outlets and accessories have been used throughout all the bathrooms.
Step 3: Get your products delivered
At Highgrove Bathrooms, we take care of your bathroom products from start to finish to make your experience happy and stress-free. We can help you with your bathroom design and product layout, recommend local trades and deliver your order to your door.
James got his products delivered and unloaded straight into the safety of his double garage until they were ready to be installed.
Step 4: Fit off & final touches
After being sheeted, waterproofed and tiled, and the shower glass installed by licenced glaziers, it is time for the plumbing fit off.
After ensuring all the plumbing is connected and products installed correctly, you can then add the final touches including installing the bathroom accessories, and cleaning and styling the spaces.
From a block of land to a functional farmhouse, this home doesn’t disappoint. All three bathrooms were created with a modern farmhouse design. Featuring simple whites and neutral greys, the palette is broken up with a bold navy wall hung vanity in each room. The same classic patterned statement tiles continue in the main bathroom and powder room.
The light-filled, open and luxury ensuite features a walk-in double shower with a statement window, a splash of colour in the wall hung vanity, a hidden toilet and smooth, elegant matte black SPIN tapware and EDEN accessories.
