One of the focal points of any conceptual process for bathroom design ideas is that of the bath. Often the centrepiece of many bathrooms, a truly unique and attractive bath section, can potentially transform your bathroom into something special, even if it is great as it is. Custom bathrooms nowadays are using many distinctive tricks of the trade to ensure that the bath is the main attraction, and below we’ve listed a few of the latest trends to turn your bath area into an amazing place to unwind and relax.
A favourite in more contemporary interior designs, utilising a mixture of bevelled and reflective tiles to create an infinite appearance, has become more popular in recent years. Working in the same way that three dimensional drawings do in tricking the eye, a clever use of these tiles can often hide the bath when empty, creating a unique visual for your bathroom’s interior. These tiles work best when glossed and coloured black, with the darkness helping to reflect their surroundings.
Retro is back
The future of baths is ironically in the past, with traditional materials, such as brass and unpolished steel, being incorporated back into bath designs. Brass faucets in particular, once a very common sight in homes all across Melbourne, have made a huge comeback into popularity. Another traditional aspect is the shape of the faucet itself, with curved, elongated tap heads and pipes being a favourite for those looking for a much more gritty, industrial design.
Natural stone tubs
Refined and improved manufacturing processes have led to organic stone tubs being used for bathroom renovations in Melbourne. The most popular seem to be granite composites, which offer a beautiful visual of the delicate and shiny minerals encased within the granite itself. These are effortlessly highlighted when water is deposited into the bathtub itself, often projecting the mineral quality throughout the liquid, and creating a welcoming visual for those who are bathing.
