The bathrooms have been a highlight of this season of House Rules – here are the key trends we’ve seen along the way.
The latest Moroccan and Portuguese-look tiles
Judge Drew Heath says that he has loved the exposure to these on-trend materials. “I have never been exposed to all these Spanish and Portuguese tiles before,” he says. “I really enjoy the flourish and pattern that they bring to a house.”
Marble, marble and more marble
There is no question that marble is making a welcome return to bathrooms – often en masse. The favoured type seems to be Carrara, with its grey-white base and veins of dark charcoal. With many homeowners wanting a monochromatic colour scheme, this style works really well with the current trend for black tapware and white cabinetry.
Even if you want a simple colour scheme in your bathroom, there is no reason not to break out with a stunning feature mosaic feature wall. The standout silver mosaic in Chiara and David’s WA home shows how a hero tile can add glamour and indulgence in a simple step. For more ideas with feature walls in bathroom, see our story here.
Don ‘t be afraid to experiment with the laying of your tiles – the brick pattern, as seen in David and Chiara’s home is the most popular, but straight (or stack bond) tile patterns can also make a strong statement, particularly in a modern setting.
