Thrones for all king­doms

Whether you want min­i­mal, tra­di­tional, ro­man­tic or hi-tech style, you can in­dulge in your very own bath­room fan­tasy

There is a real life game of thrones go­ing on in Aus­tralian bath­rooms, with styles dif­fer­ing de­pend­ing on age.

Mil­len­nial home­own­ers are ex­per­i­ment­ing with Scandi-styled bath­rooms, while Baby Boomers are show­ing in­ter­est in more tra­di­tional aes­thet­ics.

The find­ings were re­vealed in the 2017 Aus­tralian Houzz Bath­room Trends Study, which quizzed more than 1700 home­own­ers who were plan­ning a bath­room ren­o­va­tion, or had re­cently com­pleted one.

Over­all, con­tem­po­rary and mod­ern bath­room styles were the most pop­u­lar, with state­ment de­signs and nat­u­ral light­ing among the pri­or­i­ties for those look­ing to luxe up the lav.

Ad­di­tion­ally, al­most one in 10 mil­len­nial home­own­ers deem bath­room de­sign to be all about ro­mance, ac­cord­ing to the sur­vey.

Ren­o­va­tors are also go­ing hi-tech, with 12 per cent of new toi­lets and five per cent of new show­ers boast­ing fea­tures such as dig­i­tal con­trols, built-in sound for show­ers, and self-clean­ing and over­flow pro­tec­tion for toi­lets.

Su­per­sized show­ers and bath­tubs were also pop­u­lar among the sur­vey group.

Mean­while, Beau­mont Tiles is pre­dict­ing that their new Nordic and Stock­holm ranges of bath­room van­i­ties will raise the bar for min­i­mal­is­tic bath­room fit-outs in 2018.

De­scribed as ver­sa­tile, sleek and vis­ually stun­ning, both van­ity ranges are per­fect for Retro Vin­tage, Scan­di­na­vian, Coastal, Global Fu­sion or Eclec­tic Bo­hemian in­spired bath­rooms – mak­ing them the per­fect choice to stand the test of time, ac­cord­ing to Beau­mont Tiles.
