Bathroom Renovations

9 beautiful bathrooms to inspire your next makeover

Take style cues from these gorgeous zones.

Balancing the functionality of a bathroom with its aesthetic appeal is not without its challenges, making it one of the most intimidating rooms to design in the home. Key factors include not throwing a working layout out with the bathwater – but it’s important to assess your needs first and be realistic about how you plan to use the space daily.

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • what works about the current layout?

  • what needs improvement?

  • how many people will use the bathroom?

  • will there be more than one user at a time?

  • how much available natural light is there?

  • how much storage do you have/need (Tip: more than you think!)

  • what style is the rest of your home?

  • what is the budget you are working with?

  • what other bathrooms have you visited and admired?

All of these factors feed into your decision making as you plan a new build or bathroom renovation, so rather than rush into a complete overhaul, take the time to research, plan and design the best bathroom for you and your family.
