Top Bathroom Remodelling Trends

Bathrooms are a place for rejuvenation, where attention to detail can create a wonderful area for time out. Whatever your personal grooming style, your bathroom is a place that should work for you. If clear surfaces and monochromatic palettes set the tone for self-care, that’s what you should have. If you like to prepare for the day surrounded by your favourite scrubs and moisturisers, then embrace these elixirs. With a few changes here and there, you can transform your bathroom into a place you won’t want to leave.

Here are some remodelling ideas that tap into current trends while keeping all the necessities of function

Natural Materials

Natural materials are a central element in 2017 design concepts.  Returning to raw materials as a source of nourishment allows us to create special nooks and corners for respite throughout our homes. Bathrooms are an ideal space to set this design inspiration to work.

If you are remodelling, this is the perfect time to incorporate these design features into your bathroom in a way that will last. The great thing about using natural materials is they will always create a desirable effect. Even as styles come and go, solid, substantial natural materials will serve you well. Decorative accessories, textures and colours can easily be added and replaced as trends change.

Timber and Stone

Natural features can be built into the structure of your bathroom, with the use of stone as a decorative feature meeting a range of style preferences. A classic contemporary bathroom can easily make use of stone in the walls or floor tiles while remaining modern. Bringing an organic element into the space heightens the feeling of calm, cleansing and rejuvenation. Combined with all your favourite luxury bathroom items, you will have the best of both worlds.

If you are going for a vintage or rustic feel, recycled timber units, shelving or wood face panelling on cabinetry will transport you to another time.

Adding a Tub

There is nothing quite as relaxing as a bathtub. If a bath is on your list of must-haves, Salt KB can help you select the perfect tub. A claw bath makes a stunning centrepiece and when combined with stone features, tiling or even a bowl of loose pebbles, the overall effect is heavenly. Bathtubs also increase the value of your home, so if you don’t already have one, you might consider adding one at this time.

Accessorise with Natural Materials

Bathroom renovations do not always need to involve replacing showers and toilets. Replacing outdated cabinets, a vanity or even towel racks and rails are all opportunities to add a new style to your space. Replacing a shower curtain with a glass cubicle will enhance the natural light in your bathroom. Making a feature of stone tiling can say a lot with little effort. Greenery can be incorporated with bathroom-friendly hanging plants and reed-like potted features.


Current bathroom colour trends favour neutral palettes, which serves a dual purpose. The neutral colours are both reminiscent of the natural world and a canvas to accommodate individual designs. Sleek modern, urban styles are easily achieved with dramatic black and white, granite features, or classic ivory. At the same time, a bohemian wonderland can be created against neutral backdrops by adding rich coloured cotton towels, wicker baskets, natural candles, and floating flowers.
