Tanya Buchanan, the Editor-in-Chief of Australian House and Garden magazine, understands the significance of trends when it comes to crafting the perfect bathroom. Recognising their role as a lens that allows us to unlock our own aesthetic preferences, in collaboration with Tanya, we have identified the five major bathroom trends. These trends include the enduring appeal of Art Deco, the tranquility of Day Spa, the timeless elegance of Hamptons, the drama and opulence inspired by the Hotel Experience, and the unique Modern Australian trend curated by local designers and architects.

Art Deco

Art Deco has become a staple trend in bathrooms, bringing glamour and intricate detail to your home, characterized by sleek lines, geometric patterns, and luxurious materials. Bathrooms embracing Art Deco often feature bold colors such as black, gold, and navy, exuding a sense of opulence. Creating statement pieces like detailed, dark timber vanities, ornate mirrors, and textured tiles effortlessly capture the essence of this trend where more is more.

Day Spa

The Day Spa trend offers a rejuvenating oasis within your homes. Inspired by serene retreats, this trend emphasizes a tranquil ambiance synonymous with a feeling of relaxation and pampering. Soft, neutral color palettes with natural hues own the trend, bought to life through materials like marble, stone, and wood to enhance the spa-like atmosphere. Luxurious features such as freestanding bathtubs, rain showerheads, and warm lighting complete the transformation into a personal sanctuary offering plenty of space of self-care.

Hampton Style

The enduring charm of the Hampton style continues to captivate homeowners with its timeless elegance. Inspired by the traditional Hamptons style of classic whites, heritage inspired tapware and accessories, this trend exudes relaxed luxury. Soft blues or greens and natural textures give this trend a refreshed lens, creating an inviting and breezy ambiance. Details like shaker-style cabinetry, subway tiles, and wainscoting are key elements in achieving this timeless aesthetic.

Hotel Experience

Emulating the opulence and drama of hotel bathrooms has become a sought-after trend. Hotel-inspired bathrooms elevate the everyday experience by introducing oversized shower spaces, free-standing baths, heated floors and towel rails, large mirrors, statement lighting fixtures and bold patterns. The use of luxurious materials such as marble, brass and metallic detailing adds a touch of extravagance and drama. This trend allows you to create a space that exudes sophistication and provides a sense of indulgence to enjoy every day.

Modern Australian

Last but not least, a new trend emerging from Australian design. We’re seeing Australian designers and trades increasingly embracing a modern Australian look in their projects. This trend combines contemporary aesthetics with authentic Australian elements. Native timbers, organic shapes and earthy tones like terracotta, eucalyptus and sea blue are characteristic of this style, fostering a connection with the natural surroundings. Embracing sustainability and locally sourced materials reflects a deep appreciation for the environment and local craftsmanship.
