In Bathroom, Trends Posted

With a strong focus on timeless beauty and elegance, modern bathroom designs aim to make the most of your space in keeping a practical layout with low maintenance design choices and finishes. Each of the following design solutions take maintenance, style, comfort and efficiency into consideration to help you create the perfect bathroom layout that will be enjoyed for many years to come. 

Floating Bathroom Cabinetry

Including a floating vanity unit in your next bathroom renovation assists in creating the illusion of additional space. A great technique to use (especially in narrow or small bathroom designs) to maximise the amount of space in your bathroom design is to elevate bathroom fittings and storage solutions up and off the floor, creating an ‘airy’ (or floating!) modern look. 

Part of our East Hawthorn bathroom renovation, this custom made floating vanity is clad in Caesarstone, creating a delightfully modern look. With a push-to-open feature installed on the luxuriously oversized hidden drawer, there is plenty of storage space for bottles and lotions that need to be kept at arm’s reach at the vanity.

Large households will also benefit from including more storage options in a bathroom design; tall cabinets can be included in your renovation that are custom made to house pull-out laundry hampers, drawers and shelving for the assorted odds and ends that need to be stored in the bathroom. These units too can be raised up off the ground further exaggerating the room’s overall dimensions or size while ensuring all the bathroom necessities are close at hand. 

Encaustic Tiles

Encaustic tiles have the unique power to completely transform your bathroom renovation thanks to their unique sleek, matte texture and bold patterning they are renowned for. Always on trend, encaustic tiles create a striking feature in any space, whether they are used as a bathroom feature wall or as a stylish floor finish.

 Perini Tiles’ Messina encaustic tiles draw inspiration from vintage styled interiors to create the perfect look in your next bathroom renovation. These timeless, handmade pieces are available in an assortment of patterns and colours to help you create a truly unique design scheme in your next project.

Encaustic tiles in the bathroom offer a timeless, low maintenance finish for both floors and walls. Being a porous surface however, there are a few key points to consider in terms of care and maintenance; properly sealing your tiles will help protect the surface of the product, ensuring they remain easy to maintain and keep clean. You will find suitable sealers and cleaning products available at Perini Tiles that will ensure the long lifespan, durability and integrity of your new encaustic bathroom tiles.

Patterned Bathroom Floor Tiles

Create a bold visual statement using patterned bathroom floor tiles for the ultimate in luxury styling. Whether you opt for encaustic or porcelain tiles, this look can be balanced out by muted finishes in the remainder of your selection, as demonstrated in our Hawthorn bathroom renovation below. The crisp, warm white wall tiles, vanity unit and bathroom fittings offer a light contrast in the design while the dove grey coloured engineered stone benchtop perfectly matches the soft grey of the floor tiles, creating a well-balanced and cohesive look by tying the entire scheme together. 

Patterned floor tiles create interest and excitement in your bathroom renovation, adding both style and character to the space. Perini Tiles’ Hola collection features in our timeless Hawthorn bathroom renovation, perfectly complementing the soft whites used in this design.

Back-to-Wall Freestanding Bathtubs

Freestanding bathtubs will always create an air of luxury in a bathroom design however they are not always the most practical choice for your space’s dimensions and your own individual needs and lifestyle. You can however, still achieve that same luxurious vibe in your new bathroom layout by using a back-to-wall freestanding bath instead. These models give the appearance of a freestanding tub with the tub itself butting up against the wall, sealing the gaps that are common around traditional freestanding tubs. This solution provides an excellent option for small bathroom designs as well as providing a low maintenance design choice, eliminating the need to clean up around a freestanding tub.

Our Toorak bathroom renovation uses a freestanding bathtub embedded in a custom made stone surround that effectively seals off the empty space behind the tub itself, creating a low maintenance option in this luxurious and modern bathroom design.

Each of these trending bathroom design ideas maintain a strong focus on practically in the bathroom as well as ease of maintenance, allowing you to spend less time cleaning your home and more time enjoying it! Our design team at Perini Renovations will assist you in the design and selection stages of your bathroom renovation project, right through to construction, paying close attention to each and every single detail to ensure your complete piece of mind.
