Back in October/November last year we ran a bathroom renovation competition whereby the winner would receive a $20k bathroom reno by Australia's renovation queen - Cherie Barber. Anita was our winner and the reno has now been completed.

Wow - what a transformation! Check out the before and after video - Cherie has taken Anita's bathroom from drab to fab. Cook's supplied beautiful products from Caroma and Fienza, along with tiles supplied by Di Lorenzo. The end result is amazing and Anita couldn't be happier. Full list of products used at the end of this post.

Thanks to everyone who assisted in various ways to make this $20k bathrom reno come to life: Cherie Barber, Fienza, Caroma, Di Lorenzo Tiles, Mickey The Chippie, Steve Castle Plumbing and Make Media.

Throughout the renovation Cherie also recorded a few tips which may help when doing your own reno:

Does your bathroom and/or ensuite desperately need a reno? Have they seen better days? If yours is anything like mine (we’re currently stuck with beige, beige and more beige) it’s actually depressing.  Have you gone through every colour palette imaginable with new sets of towels and bath mats to joosh it up a bit?  It’s just not acceptable anymore right?!  What about those dreaded shower screen tracks?!  The task of getting down into those tracks and scrubbing with an old toothbrush every week – ugggh.

Are you like me and have no idea where to start? Give me a wardrobe full of clothes and shoes and I’ll mix and match outfits that Anna Wintour would be proud of! Basins, taps, vanities and shower heads – help!

Frustrated woman for mood board blog

A friend of mine suggested a mood board to get those creative thoughts going.  After telling her the only mood board I’m aware of is the bored and bad moods I’m in every time I enter these bathroom zones, it has got me thinking.  Maybe she’s onto something?

Turns out, good old Google is good for something other than looking up all those symptoms you’re worried about, and having it tell you you’ve got every diagnosis known to man!

''Mood Board – ‘A way to collect different creative information in order to prepare for a new project.” Ok, let’s do this Mood Board thing.

Search words that describe the look and mood you are drawn to – I’m thinking French Provincial, Scandi, Modern Sleek. Also think about colours, textures and materials (warm, timber, natural, organic, smooth etc.). There’s many online templates that can assist to put all these thoughts and images together.  We’ve used Canva (how good is Canva for wannabe Graphic Designers like me by the way!)

The things you include in your Mood Board don’t have to directly relate to your project.  Just because something is from a different genre doesn’t mean you can’t use it to help establish the direction of your design.

Oh and create more than one – not saying have a heap of them and end up so overwhelmed you’re back where you started – but do a few.  You’ll be surprised how much this can help and you’ll actually come up with a visual that will assist in creating the space of your dreams.  Here’s what I came up with (if you're eyesight is less than ordinary like mine, you can click on each pic to enlarge)….
