It's time to remodel your bathroom once and for all!
Thanks to COVID-19, we’ve all spent a lot more time at home the past few months! No doubt some of those jobs we keep meaning to get to, but are always too busy to get to, have become much more noticeable. And one of those rooms seems to be the bathroom.
We have seen an increase in quote requests for bathroom and ensuite renovations of late and thought this would be a good time to discuss trends and things to consider when deciding on bathroom remodels.
The very first thing to consider is the space and the use of the space. Is it a single-family bathroom that needs to include some shower-privacy while the kids get ready for school? Do you need more than one sink to keep the kids’ separate from the adults or even to stop all that bickering in the morning? Or are you dreaming of an ensuite that instantly gives you a sense of peace and tranquillity when you walk in? It’s a good idea to have a think about these things before you meet with a builder. Once you know how you want your bathroom to function on a day-to-day basis, you can discuss layout and options with the builder during the quoting process.
In terms of layout and design we’re seeing an increase in wet areas that feature a beautiful soaking tub and shower with multiple shower heads, all behind a glass shower screen.
Feature tiles continue to be popular to evoke a sense of drama or peace to the space – depending on your preference! Terrazzo, subway tiles and herringbone patterns are just some of the many popular trends when it comes to tiling. And with so many options of textures, colours and patterns, your choices are endless!
And when it comes to colours, neutrals and pastels matched with black or gold accessories is dominating the Instagram and Pinterest feeds lately. This teamed with a beautiful stone bench top and oak cabinets make for an absolutely stunning bathroom design, and don’t forget to add a creative flair to your mirror to match; arch mirrors are becoming an increasingly popular choice!
But remember, no matter what the trends are dictating, think about your space – are you remodelling your forever home? Do what you want! You are the one that is going to use that bathroom every day – make sure you love it! Are you remodelling an investment property? Perhaps tone it back a bit to reduce the risk of polarising your buyers or tenants.
So stop sighing every time you take a bathroom break from your make-shift home office (which is probably in need of a remodel too!). Get some ideas together of what you want to achieve and give us a call. After all, you’ve been talking about this remodel for a looooooooooong time 😉
