Focus on fixtures
Many homeowners are moving away from the standard chrome fixtures and embracing more unique styles. The contrast of dark fittings against a mostly white bathroom is proving to be a popular choice.
For a sophisticated and timeless look, you might like to opt for matte black tapware and fittings. Metallics like copper and gold are also trending and can add a touch of luxury to your bathroom sanctuary.
If you’re creating a bolder aesthetic, you could mix and match your fixtures and fittings. For example, combining warmer metals with black or chrome styles. Textured tapware is a bold and increasingly popular option.
If you enjoy soaking in your bath – and have the space – then invest in a tub that will have you longing for a soak amongst the bubbles. You’ll be able to choose from an exciting range of bath shapes, from classic to contemporary, depending on your taste.
Freestanding baths are very popular and come in a range of sizes so you can find the perfect fit – whatever your space.
A splash of colour
Reds, blues and even yellows are now popping up in bathrooms – whether it’s paint or feature tiles providing the colour. Colour is a great way to brighten up one of the smallest rooms in your home.
You can also combine colour and texture to set the tone of your bathroom. How will your choices blend with how you style the room? How will you mix and match the design with your bath towels and décor elements?
When you’re selecting bright coloured accents, make sure to layer them with calming neutrals like light-grey, champagne and beige for a cohesive space.
For a sleek look, and to make your bathroom look more spacious, it’s hard to go past a floating vanity. You could choose to add strip lighting underneath the vanity to add a design highlight.
For a truly clean and minimalist look, opt for a handleless vanity. This trend has already taken off in kitchens and is well suited for the bathroom.

Once your children become independent and fly the nest you may be left wondering how long you should stay in the family home. You’re probably cleaning and caring for a home that’s bigger than what you need, and spending too much time gardening, when there are other things you’d rather be doing.
