Top trends for a bathroom makeover

If you’re looking to enhance the value of your home, a modernised kitchen or bathroom is the way to go. However, a full kitchen renovation isn’t always an affordable option, so you might want to focus on the small yet dynamic space of your bathroom. Here are some of the top current trends for a fresh bathroom makeover. 

Spa aesthetics 

Modern bathrooms are much like personal spas, with soothing design elements and plenty of space for self-care essentials. Luxury finishes like thick glass doors, detailed mosaic tile, and quartz countertops create a room that offers an experience rather than just utility.  

Colour schemes 

Your bathroom is the perfect canvas to experiment with bright colours and pull together an interesting scheme. While the rest of the home may call for calm neutrals, the bathroom might benefit from a splash of vibrancy – so take advantage!

Quirky hardware 

Make your bathroom space feel personal with some quirky hardware adjustments and unique fixtures. From vintage faucets to handmade doorknobs, embellishing your bathroom with original, eye-catching pieces is a great way to break up a monotonous space.

Showers with power 

Upgrading your home’s shower could be as simple and cost-effective as swapping out the shower head. There are hundreds of models online to choose from, each offering a completely different shower experience by altering the water pressure. From atmospheric rainfall showers to powerful flow-adapting handsets, there’s no reason to settle for poor water pressure.

Floating vanities 

Elevate your vanity area for a refined, modern appeal that won’t go out of style. Not only do floating vanities look great, but they also make room for extra floor space, storage, and strips of ambient lighting to tie the whole look together. 


A wallpapered bathroom might sound like an oxymoron, but with thousands of water-resistant options available today, you can safely style up your bathroom without fear of water damage. Waterproof wallpaper can be installed anywhere in the bathroom, even in the shower or behind a bath! This is an easy way to integrate a pop of colour and an eye-catching pattern while skipping the fuss of paint and tiles.

Freestanding bathtubs 

Give your bathroom a luxurious, sculptural feel with a freestanding tub. This is a design choice geared towards self-care and relaxation, often making the tub the central focus of the room. It also frees up some space along the walls for a vanity or storage drawers, so make the most of this trend by utilising every inch of floor space with leafy plants, hanging baskets and fluffy bathmats. 

Geometric patterns 

Geometric tile arrangements have surged in popularity due to their minimalistic yet impactful presence. Think soothing, symmetrical patterns such as herringbone, chevron and basketweave to create a subtle yet eye-catching feature wall or flooring. 

Natural materials 

Natural materials such as wood, marble, and ceramic aren’t likely to go out of style any time soon. These textures add a touch of nature to the bathroom, ideal for a space intended to refresh and invigorate.
