Bathroom renovation ideas for 2015

A new year means new trends, and if you are renovating your bathroom, you may be interested in the latest practises for 2015. Your bathroom will need to be functional, but it will also need to look like it is new and devoid of any daggy or outdated features. Create a bathroom that is fresh and new, and that will continue to feel like this well into the future.

Fall in love with nature

Natural elements help us to relax and unwind, so they are perfect for bathrooms. Incorporate these into your bathroom renovation plans by choosing wood and stone as your key materials. You may also install a larger window to let the sunshine in, and select a colour scheme that is all about browns, greens and yellows.

Indoor plants are very important if you live in an inner city apartment, and living walls are trending in 2015 as they do not require much space for the plants to live. These involve growing plants on the wall of a room, such as your bathroom, which makes you feel like you are surrounded by a forest. Talk to your bathroom designer about the potential of this feature in your home, and also a gardener or landscaper who is familiar with the best indoor plants for bathrooms. You will need to know how to care for the plants too, as they will need to be fed and watered regularly to appear at their best.

Open up your bathroom

A bathroom can actually be the major feature in a home, so show it off with style. A bathing area in a master bedroom may not even have doors between the bed, the basin and the bath. This is a great option for super-large rooms, or L-shaped rooms where a bathroom can be hidden around a corner. It is less appealing if the room is small because the bedding and the water will come into contact. You may also consider getting romantic with a hot tub or spa bath, to really create a master bedroom retreat.

Outdoor bathrooms

Outdoor entertaining means that your family and its visitors will be traipsing between the backyard and the indoor bathroom – so why not install an outdoor bathroom? This might be as simple as a well-presented toilet and basin, or you could even install an outdoor shower. This is almost essential if you live in a beach-side town and your family is constantly returning from the surf with salt and sand all over them. A quick wash off outside will be lovely and refreshing, and it will keep your indoor bathroom from getting dirty. The same applies for avid gardeners or mechanics who get grubby playing with dirt and grease. Place a shower in the backyard, and keep your indoor areas pristine.

Size-up the storage

Bathroom remodelling may include storage solutions for the entire family. You will need space to store towels and mats, along with bathing products, makeup, hair driers, spare toilet paper, and children’s bath toys. Insert a large cupboard in your bathroom during renovations in 2015, or get tricky with creative storage solutions. This is especially important if you only have one bathroom in your home, and everyone needs to store their equipment in the same room. Successful bathroom storage solutions will also keep you bathroom looking clean, clear and attractive. Place all of your unsightly items behind closed doors and adore the simplicity of a clutter-free space.
