While there are timeless options you can choose for your bathroom, technology and trends are always changing. If you plan on updating your bathroom in 2018 hear are the latest trends that bathrooms in Perth WA are experiencing.
Bathroom Tiling Patterns
When you renovate bathrooms for a living it’s crucial you stay on top of the trends that are happening. One of the latest trends is laying tiles is in the Herringbone fashion which effectively any rectangular tile can be laid this way. As you can see below it creates a unique modern finish that adds a more subtle pop. Penny round tiles have been a concept that has made the list for the last few years of bathroom renovation trends. Now though the introduction of colored penny tiles add a softer alternative that in a small room can actually add depth and warmth.
Black-and-white hex tiles will always be classic, but in 2018, it’s oversize, coloured hex tiles that will be all the rage. They add a pop to the room with terracotta yes that 70’s disaster is making a come back in the hexagon style. Below in this perth bathroom is a combination of green and white to make you feel warmly towards the wet room
For the shower, several options are being implemented, but there is more and more demand for the open shower and, especially, renovator tends toward the multi-functional equipped shower. Its about them making them better and functional for you to achieve the most out of your room
A minimalist shower which a word i will use a lot has an appearance while transparent. In addition to being easy to maintain, it allows you to save space and adapts to all styles of decors.
The Industrial Look
Bring on the industrial age. To create a modern and elegant industrial decoration worthy of a New York loft, designers are embracing the unique and imperfect pieces such as the washbasins or a metal bathtub and adding walls of brick, floors of waxed concrete and finishing with a touch of rustic wood to warm the atmosphere. Now you dont need to go all in on this look even a concrete looking floor which is a trend in its self-create the look you want.
The Tech Bathroom
As technology advances, the bathroom does not escape. For example, more and more mirrors with LED lighting, temperature regulator if you can adjust it technology is catching up. Here is also some bathroom LIGHTING TIPS
The heated towel rail with various designs is more and more present and replaces the traditional towel rail. Some can be hard wired or external but each has there own higher costings and problems.
The next step will be a fully functional talking bathroom that you control everything but that feels more like a 2019 trend. Below is a video example of strip lighting we installed in a bathroom renovation Gosnells.
Who’s got wood
Wood is polarising for bathroom renovations especially for bathrooms in Australia and Perth. In colder climates it is a necessity really as the warmth is fantastic it is also great for second stories or homes that have a high degree of movement but harder to convince people in warmer climates to have.
The most likely outcome is the wood look tile, as its a compromise of sorts. It does not have the feel but done right has the great look of warmth that this style brings. Wood look laminate vanities will boom in 2018 to complete the forest feel.
Trends are trends if that makes sense, They come and go and your renovation will remain. Its important and I preach this almost religiously is if you don’t like it before the bathroom renovation starts you will have to look at every day of your life with it most likely not getting better. So don’t take the risk. Renovate to your needs and what you like you may be there for 30 plus years you never know.
