Once you’ve found your favourite design elements, it’s time to choose the perfect bathroom design for your renovation! But with so many options out there, how do you know you’re making the right decision for your home? This is when guidance from the renovation experts comes in handy.
17+ years of experience has shown us not all bathroom designs are created equal. Some bathroom designs may look beautiful and please your eyes. However, they lack basic functionality, which means they’ll never really suit your or your family’s needs. What’s more, we can confidently say that some designs cannot be beaten for their simplicity, sheer beauty, and functionality. And those are the ones worth considering.
Drawing on our expertise and experience, we’ve distilled the essential features of a superb bathroom renovation down to four main bathroom styles to suit any home. Then, with the help of our award-winning renovation team, your role is to unleash your creativity and customise your design until it feels like you!
The Urban bathroom style creates a simple yet beautiful environment for calming and efficient modern bathing rituals. With a pared-back colour palette, an Urban bathroom can be styled in infinite ways, with a streamlined design that leaves room for self-expression. Moreover, the Urban bathroom style is super durable and timeless in aesthetics, allowing the space to be effortlessly inserted within any home.
Have you considered including a skylight in your bathroom’s design? A skylight is a beautiful and functional way to allow natural light to flood the space, creating a calming environment, as demonstrated in our urban bathroom display with a stepped ceiling to add a little drama.
If you love Contemporary design or are renovating to sell, then the Urban bathroom style is the perfect inclusion where less really is more.

The Modern Elegance style blends the homely feeling of traditional designs with the airy and crisp look of modern designs for a timeless look. With an elegant and sophisticated aesthetic, Modern Elegance bathrooms utilise the best features of classic designs to create a contemporary space to suit any home.
Perhaps you love traditional elements like profiled doors and subway tiles, but want your home to look and feel modern and contemporary? A Modern Elegance bathroom achieves just that by balancing a marble-look vanity top with sleek tapware and a showstopping coloured basin. And that is just one of the many ways you could play with this versatile design.
True to our philosophy, a Modern Elegance bathroom can be quite pared back or very ornate, depending on your taste. Patterned, coloured, or big format tiles? Coloured basin or white? Round handles or sleek bars? It’s up to you! You can work with your designer to create the version of Modern Elegance that feels just like you.

A Coastal bathroom feels like a little beach holiday within your home. With calming pastel colours, textural terrazzo and blonde timbers, a coastal bathroom celebrates the beauty of raw materials and is perfect for those who want to make a nature-inspired sanctuary of their bathroom.
The main features of a Coastal bathroom are its gorgeous terrazzo tiles accompanied by a stunning solid-surface free-standing bath and a practical floating vanity in a soothing timber shade. If relaxed seaside vibes are your thing, then Coastal might be for you!
