After the kitchen, the bathroom is the second most popular room in a home to be renovated. A bathroom is also one of the most important rooms to remodel when it comes to improving a home’s valuation.
The problem that most homeowners have when it comes to a bathroom renovation is not knowing how they want the finished room to look, and whether the latest trends will work in the space they have. We’d love to share these 6 brilliant bathroom ideas with you.
An increasingly popular trend here in Australia is for homes to go ‘bath-less’. More Australians are choosing to swap out their baths for a luxuriously sized entry level walk-through shower. Not only are they more functional, they deliver that resort-like experience. Why not add an additional shower head to maximise on the luxe feel.
As a word of warning: Most homeowners do enjoy having at least one large bath within the home, even if it is to help complete cleaning tasks rather than to bathe. If you have more than one bathroom in the home, try to leave one with a bath. And speaking of baths…
For those who may want to reserve at least one bathroom in the home as a space to escape and relax, then a free-standing bath is the way to go. Not only serving a functional purpose, a free-standing bath will add a sculptural element to the room. With many different sizes, shapes and colours available you are sure to find the perfect fit for your space.
A white bathroom is always going to be a classic. It is bright, cheery and clean. With that said, adding pops or large spaces of colour can completely change the room’s atmosphere.
A nice compliment to a solid wall of one colour is to introduce patterns in the laying style of your tiles. You can add dimension to the room without the need to select patterned tiles. There are plenty of laying styles that will add a subtle ‘wow factor’ to your space.
Have a spare antique cabinet sitting around the home? Or perhaps you have found one at a great price at a garage sale. Bring in one or two unique and inviting pieces of furniture into the bathroom if you have the room. An old loved piece can be converted into a vanity. Not only does it add to the overall tone and beauty of the room, but it is also functional.
For those who may not have space for a large statement piece, reduce bathroom clutter by adding slim storage solutions into your bathroom. Mirrored cabinets or shelving units work well within a smaller space. Opt for solutions that offer several compartments so there’s space to hold items for everyone within the bathroom.
6. Bring in slim storage solutions
For those who may not have the space for a large statement piece, reduce bathroom clutter by adding slim storage solutions into your space. Mirrored cabinets or shelving units that fit snugly into the corner of the room work well, as do taller shelves. Opt for solutions that offer several compartments so that they can hold items for everyone within the home.
