Thinking of undertaking a bathroom renovation? We know bathroom renovations can be a bit overwhelming. With new bathroom trends constantly changing, it can be hard to determine what is today’s trend and what is here to stay. We have waded through the numerous trends to give you our top pick of the best bathroom renovation options that will not only look great in your home but also combine form with function to make sure your bathroom is compatible for your lifestyle too.
Recent trends towards health and wellness and impacts on travel and luxury holidays have seen the rise in the at-home spa experience. Homeowners are increasingly looking to recreate the luxury of a hotel experience in their own homes.
Hotel bathrooms have been designed with space and luxury in mind. Bathrooms are visually arresting, with natural colour schemes and clean, simple lines designed to instill calm. They have minimal clutter, natural lighting, and luxurious accents to soothe. Steam rooms and saunas are also increasingly popping up in the at-home hotel bathroom.
Tied to the hotel bathroom trend is the desire for home bathrooms to feature the luxury free-standing bath. These baths are becoming increasingly popular and offer homeowners a place to relax and unwind.
Free-standing flat bottom tubs are more popular than the traditional claw foot model, offering a modern and sleek addition to the bathroom. Daklen CEO Mark Passfield states, ‘We are seeing a lot more request from homeowners during their bathroom upgrades for free-standing baths, and with new modern and smaller versions, it can be a great addition to add value to your home without taking up too much space.’
Trends towards a warmer relaxation retreat, coupled with new sustainability trends, have driven the rise in the timber trend. Timber naturally adds warmth and depth to any bathroom or ensuite renovation. Homeowners add anything from timber vanities to timber feature walls and even smaller accessories such as timber stools. They present a great way to add texture and dimension and a more earthy feel to the bathroom.
If looking to add some timber touches during your bathroom renovation, consider sourcing existing timber pieces that can be repurposed for a sustainable touch to your bathroom.
The trend towards more significant showers has been increasing over the years. As a result, double showers and walk-in showers are growing in popularity. Walk-in showers seamlessly blend form and function in any bathroom.
Walk-in showers are unobtrusive, allowing a cleaner flow to the bathroom and a more seamless room. And the best part – they are easier to clean than more traditional forms of showers.
While chrome and matte black tapware are still popular with many homeowners, the trend towards metallic tapware is on its way. Warm metallic tapware like copper, gold and rose gold are adding a touch of luxury to bathrooms.
Tapware can be combined with subtle additional metallic accents throughout the bathroom, such as mirror fixtures, door handles, and shower frames, creating an ultimate style statement.
The subway tiles trend has been around for some time. While it is not going anyway anytime soon, the trend is evolving. The trend will move away from the traditional size and layout to a more playful side. Expect more colours, different configurations, and feature walls.
Subway tiles will start to be anything but white. Instead, colours that add richness to the space are becoming more popular such as emerald greens, navy blues, and even lighter blues.
