The Humble Bathroom

Is your bathroom looking dated and getting old? Maybe you are planning a completely new home and now exploring bathroom design options. Or, you want to add some value and appeal by updating an investment property.

When it comes to renovating, it is the rooms with plumbing – bathrooms and kitchens – which are rightfully often the top priority. Fixtures, finishes and ultimately functionality can deteriorate over time.

A renovation or complete remodelling will breathe fresh life into the spaces where you come to clean and refresh yourself. To find refuge at the end of a busy day and rejuvenate yourself.

As one of the make-over masters of bathroom renovation Geelong has to offer, Trenic Construction and Building can bring some sparkle and pizzazz to yours.

Do you have a family bathroom which is busy and chaotic? Someone is always using it. You are going to need a design which is durable and easy to look after.

You might have more than one bathroom which needs some design attention. A master ensuite bathroom can be a peaceful sanctuary of self-care. Imagine adding some more luxury touches here, like a pair of above bench stone basins, or underfloor heating.

Four keys areas to think about when creating your bathrooms are: the layout, lighting, fixtures and finishes.

Using your space well

Designing the ideal bathrooms for your home can be a balancing act of space and functionality. You want to be smart and use your available space as efficiently as possible.

The challenge is that when you are familiar with a space it can be difficult to envision it with a new layout. Getting advice from an experienced builder will help you see the possibilities.

Rearranging and modernising a bathroom layout can be one of the best ways to update the space. There are often past design fashions which no longer work for the modern family. Replace them with some new styles and see what a difference it will make.

Imagine moving the location of the bathtub, or taking away a large corner tub that is hardly used. Create an alcove where dual basins sit, with a large stylish venetian glass mirror hanging above. Could the toilet in your main bathroom be separated into its own room?

Get the groundwork right. Planning the layout is the first and key step in creating any wonderful new bathroom space.

Consider light in your bathroom

Light is crucial for keeping a wet area clean and fresh. Think carefully about how you will get enough natural light coming into your bathroom spaces. Don’t worry we will help you get it right.

Perhaps a window can be made larger. Or, an additional floor to ceiling opening in privacy glass added. Perfect to let a little extra light in. A light-well or skylight can be used at times when the options for exterior windows is limited.

For night-time the light need to be in just the right places. Think about some minimal strip lights down the side of your mirror. Or, select a series of stylish pendant lights in copper or clear glass with vintage Edison bulbs.

Fixtures in your bathroom

It is important to make decisions on your fixtures early. The plumbing and electrical need to be installed to suit, so last minute choices might not work.

If you have a heritage property, you can look at the range of traditional styles which are super functional but will blend into the era of your home. Have you got your eye on a claw-foot bath? Select an antique style brass faucet system and pipes to really make it shine. You could complement this with some decorative brass handles and a wooden vanity with plenty of storage space.

Perhaps you are aiming for a clean and minimal look. Sleek sliver single lever faucets and shower fittings can be combined with matching clean-line towel rails.

Selecting the surface finishes

Now you can finally get to the exciting part. It is the surfaces in your bathroom which give it the spark and personality. We know this is really where you want to start when planning your bathroom.

There is a dizzying array of plain and patterned tiles available for your walls and floors. Make a bold colour statement, by selecting a contrasting colour for the shower area. Or, keep it traditional with decorative patterned tiles in black and white.

Do you want an air of sophisticated luxury? Select large grey stone tiles for a bold, dark and moody feel. Keep it simple and use the same material for all surfaces. Add an industrial edge with exposed shower plumbing.

Or, perhaps you imagine entering a light and fresh bathroom which is casual, beach inspired and filled with the scents of jasmine and lime. Imagine a neutral palette with some traditional penny tiles in white. Then add some contrast with wall mounted Shaker draws in soft seafoam blue.

Marble, concrete and stone popular choices for vanity tops and walls. They bring in earthy textures to a bathroom space.
