Bathrooms

A functional, restful bathroom in grey

Grey granite wall tiles are the design star of this bathroom, creating a look that’s functional and restful yet sleek and sophisticated

If you like urban style, consider a design with an industrial edge that’s still practical for family living. The beauty of this style is its versatility; it has an elegance that suits a range of home styles from a classic villa to a modern new-build. When using dark colours, consider adding fresh accents of white around window frames and with bathroomware to add contrast and lift the scheme.

If you’re investing in design statements such as granite tiles and wet rooms, make sure you have the budget to match. A basic bathroom renovation in New Zealand costs $10,000-$20,000, with a more high-end result costing around $35,000. Although bathrooms are worth investing in (they’re big-ticket items when it comes to resale), be careful not to overcapitalise.

Details to love

  • Concrete, granite and tiles can appear cold; add warmth with textured details such as woodgrain, botanicals and towels, as well as natural light.
  • A double vanity means no fighting over space at peak times!
  • Overhead pendant lights look great but create shadows on the face so ensure there is always side task lighting.
  • Add a hit of colour to a neutral bathroom with colourful, coordinated accessories.
