Bathroom Renovation Trends

Bathrooms are no longer viewed as purely a functional space, but can be a feature in your home. Renovating your bathroom can be a big project, but if you are willing to take it on you could end up with a space which is worthy of a luxurious hotel.

Trends do come and go, but we have compiled five of the best bathroom renovation trends which will never go out of style. Which one is your favourite?

The Classic Bathroom

If you are going to be spending time and money on renovating your bathroom, you don’t want it to become outdated within a few years. A classic, timeless design is always something worth aiming for and will be more appealing to buyers if you ever decide to sell your home.

Geometric tiles are on trend and when using them as part of a classic theme, stick to dark greys, blacks or whites. A spacious, uncluttered room will be able to cater to your needs and always looks inviting.

A crisp white theme looks clean and modern, and you can add a neutral feature wall to create visual interest. Using bright towels and accessories will make the room pop, without any long term commitment.

The Statement Bathroom

Having a bathroom which creates a statement is going to impress any visitors who come to your home. You can do this by installing an oversized bath, which not only looks glamorous but is more comfortable for bathing. Choose from a deep, vintage design or even an indoor spa if you are lucky enough to have the room available for it!

If you are doing the renovation yourself, you may need help from a plumber in Sydney, or someone in your local area, when installing items which require plumping. In addition to a statement bath, there are a range of different basins available.

Bamboo is currently popular and complements a white bench top. You can have two separate basins or find an unusual tap to work as the focal point. If you are looking for a new shower head, a rain style head is going to give you good water flow while creating a sense of style in your bathroom.

The Delicate Bathroom

The trend for sharp lines and large handles and taps is slowly being replaced with something more simple and delicate.  Look for thinner, daintier accessories which are much more subtle and allow your colour palette to speak for itself.

By choosing more delicate, slim pieces throughout, you can focus on one key item such as an extravagant mirror or unique light fitting. This is a good option if you are short on space. Get rid of the shower curtain and go for a shower which is more open instead.

The Natural Bathroom

Take your inspiration from the outdoors as you embrace the natural bathroom trend. Choose earthy, neutral colours and natural materials as you create your very own oasis. This style suits marble, woods and granite and should make you feel as though you are bathing in an isolated retreat deep in a rainforest.

Textured walls, large windows and a waterfall shower head can be used as stand out features. If you have the space, include some greenery and plants in your bathroom to complete the look.

The Rose Gold Bathroom

In recent times, you may have noticed a new trend in jewellery, and that is opting for rose gold instead of yellow gold or silver. This has made its way into home design and you can use this as part of your bathroom renovation for something classic, yet different.

The secret is to use rose gold sparingly for your taps, shower head, toilet roll holders, towel rails and handles. Don’t mix and match your metals, choose one and use it throughout the whole room.

Before You Start…

When renovating your bathroom, you should take your time to decide on the right theme for your home. The most important thing to look for is a timeless design which you will still love year after year.

You need to decide whether you will be doing most of the renovation work yourself, or if you will be hiring a professional. Give yourself a timeline and create a scrapbook filled with any items you like, this will help to determine your own style.

It is an investment of time and money but the results will be worth it. Plus, you will be adding value to your home. If you live in the area, a plumber in Sydney will be able to assist you with any plumping work.
