7 Bathroom Designs to Inspire Your Renovation in 2019

Make your bathroom lighting both practical and a feature of its own.

Lighting is so crucial for a bathroom. When you’re winding down at the end of the day, the last thing you want is fluorescent beams making you wide awake. On the other hand, if you’re applying make-up, you’ll need natural-looking light so you don’t have any shade-matching mishaps.

Consider installing dimmer switches, around-the-mirror glamour lighting and even some shelf lighting so you can see into the depths of every cabinet. 

Small bathroom designs call for some crafty storage.

You don’t need loads of space for cabinetry to have enough storage solutions. One of our favourite bathroom ideas for non-cabinet storage is to have an indent in your wall tiled consistently with the rest of the room.

You could have this space in your shower or near your bathtub so it’s easy to reach for your favourite products. 

Small features, like tapware, can make the biggest impact.

If you’re on a small budget, focus on updating something you need as well as make the most impact. Something like new tapware, like these matte-black fittings, really stand out in this all-white-and-grey bathroom.

There are a lot of really cool fixtures around these days, so whatever bathroom ideas you have, you’ll be able to find something to match your vibe.

Tired of the same old sterile bathroom designs? Add a pop of colour!

Neutral-coloured bathrooms are fine and all, but there is something so simplistically special about this pop of green. In fact, a lick of paint could be the only thing you need to achieve this look, depending on what you have in your bathroom already. 

If your bathroom renovation budget is tight, try focusing on décor.

Sometimes our budgets just don’t let us do what we’d like to. If your budget is restricting you, think about how a few affordable additions, like a plant, new blinds or artwork, could transform your bathroom.

Think of how different this bathroom would look without the greenery (both plants and blind) and the artwork? Sure, the pop of blue, pink and flooring is there, but it wouldn’t make as much of an impact.

Proof bathroom tiles can be the focal point of the room.

These tiles! We absolutely love the unique placement and stunning colour of these tiles to add to the all-white toilet nook. 

Remember, it’s best to leave tiling up to an expert as you have to think about legal requirements for waterproofing, correct spacing so the tiles don’t crack or lift and a bunch of other things.

Work around your existing bathroom design to save big $$$.

How can one room be both modern and rustic in feel? This bathroom design absolutely nails this brief, with the stunning timber cabinetry and beams, subway tiles and simple mirrors and lighting.

There may be a feature of your current bathroom you love but don’t quite know how to work. A professional bathroom renovator will know how to take the parts you love, ditch the bits you don’t and make it all work.
