Bathroom Trends Taking Australia by Storm
One of the biggest renovations in your home is always the bathroom. Because space is usually limited, as much practicality is stuffed into the space that you have. No matter how you renovate your bathroom, the idea is to make one of the most used spaces in your home as comfortable to use as possible. And if you can stretch your space a little, you might even be able to create a retreat in itself. One of the biggest things with bathrooms is using quality fixtures that will last decades, and also utilising renovation trends that will do the same. The biggest trend in bathroom renovation right now is timelessness, and for the value to last, it should still look relevant in ten years to the rest of your home.
In Australia, we value quality, style and practical products with affordable price tags, and here are some of the best new trends that will give your bathroom a timeless makeover.
The most common renovation aspects currently being used are organic or natural finishes like stone and timber. Bathroom colour schemes are becoming darker, richer, warmer, and moody with deep greys, navy, black and charcoal tiles and feature walls matched with brass, bronze and rose-gold fixtures.
Matte surfaces are becoming extremely popular, however combining matte with high gloss is still common. Sand stone, raw concrete and marble are highly used now, and timber trims like oak, bamboo and darker timbers set the room’s elegance. Matt black fixtures have all but taken over the market in new renovations, and they look amazing with timber and stone backdrops.
Wall hung vanities are a popular trend and delivers a clean, sleek and modern look perfect for minimalist spaces.
Custom built timber vanities, cabinets, benchtops and mirrors are one of the best ways to build a unique bathroom. This trend is keeping carpenters across the country very busy right now, and it adds a certain element of class to your bathroom.
Basins are no longer just simple and porcelain. One trend that has taken off this year is basins made of everything from stone and concrete to bamboo and carved granite. Black basins are also popular.
A definite emerging preference is large-format tiling, however large-format tiles and slabs, require strong substrate, which is costly.
Lighting plays a key role in modern renovations, and dimmable lights, sensor lights, LED strips under joinery, coloured mood lighting, are all popular items. Practicality is the means to an end with lighting however, so prominent work lights where they are needed are important.
