According to recent market research by Beaumont Tiles, choosing fixtures and fittings for your bathroom, cost blowouts and not knowing where to start are amongst the biggest challenges facing Australian renovators. Big ticket projects like bathrooms, can be particularly daunting, and leave renovators opting out of picking up the tools.
The solution? Beaumont’s strategic design team have created a series of bathroom packages that combine quality products and provide renovators with peace of mind. Priced from under $4,000, they’re available in all Beaumont Tiles stores.
“The key to alleviating reno stress is having access to transparent costs and inclusions. That’s what we’ve provided with our bathroom packages,” says Beaumont Tiles strategic designer Vanessa Thompson. “All our packages have been mindfully designed to reflect Australia’s current top 10 trends, and include everything from the cabinetry, tiles and taps, right through to the tub. Our local stores will even help you find the trades to do it!”
With over 16 packages to choose from, she shared some of her favourites and her tips on styling your newly renovated bathroom:
Clean monochrome lines complemented by tiles configured to create a spatial illusion has been kept front of mind when curating the looks for this package, with options available for both warm and cool lit spaces.
“To complete this look, create playful balance with the inclusion of elements that draw the eye upwards. Always remember to soften a modern bathroom with scented candles, trendy vases, and brushed metal elements,” adds Vanessa.
This package features a dark tile floor, with lighter wall tiles to draw the eye upwards and out. Further complemented by added texture with a feature wall tile and matching fixtures and cabinetry.
“To finish off this bathroom, add touches of drama with glass, metallic and floral elements,” says Vanessa. “Think owl feather embellished towels softened with a gorgeous glass vase with tulip or other classic bloom.”
This package is all about simplicity and economic use of space that is as beautiful as it is functional – with loads of thoughtful storage.
“In both package options we’ve selected a central focal point, then provided opportunity to add colour and layers. I recommend styling with natural elements such as a timber stool and indoor plants with geometric motifs to add theatre.”
“Coastal styling is all about bringing the outdoors in, to complete this bathroom I would opt for clean furniture in lighter shade neutrals or sea blue,” says Vanessa. “Then use indoor plants, rattan mats and seascape artworks to bring the outdoors in.”
