A bathroom is one of the most functional rooms in a home, and yet it's often overlooked during the redecoration process. While the bathroom is essential when living in a home, many aesthetic and functional updates are instead focused on the more public rooms of a house. For that reason, many bathrooms can become neglected, with outdated aesthetics and without the benefit of the latest advancements in design and technology.
Of all the rooms in your home, the bathroom is the one room where everyone needs absolute privacy. From the master bath behind your bedroom to the downstairs powder room, we all want to take care of our most personal business in private. Unfortunately, not all homes are designed to provide that privacy.
Whether you're looking to freshen up your current bathroom or you're tackling a major overhaul, it's important to remember that the right bathroom lighting can mean the difference between a bathroom that just looks good, and a bathroom that looks good and functions well.
In celebration of the upcoming Melbourne Home Show, we’re running a big bathroom giveaway, offering you the chance to win a brand new bathroom valued at $5,500.

When thinking about the look you want to achieve with your bathroom renovation, it can be hard to decide on certain details when there are just so many options. If you’re looking to give your bathroom a little personality, tiles are a great way to add character and can work towards the overall tone of the room. With endless shapes, patterns and sizes to work with, finding the combination that works with your design can take some researching.
After an inspiring, fun filled weekend at the Melbourne Home Show back in April, we’re excited to announce that we’ll be back again, exhibiting at the upcoming Home Show in August.
The four day event takes place from Thursday 16th - Sunday 19th August, opening at 10am daily at the MCEC, South Wharf, Melbourne. We’ll be in great company, alongside 280 of Australia’s premier suppliers and leading experts, providing home renovation ideas from kitchen and bathroom design to outdoor living inspiration and the latest trends in furnishing and decor.

The average bathroom is made up of the same basic elements - a bathtub, shower, toilet and sink. Yet, given the amount of time we spend in our bathrooms on a daily basis, and the fact that our visitors will use it on occasion, we'd naturally like our bathrooms feel like a haven rather than utilitarian. Feature walls are a simple way to take an average bathroom from mundane to chic.
A feature wall becomes the focal point in any room and draws the eye towards its detail. For that reason when you’re deciding on your design, it’s important to think through your decision and ensure the adjoining walls are attractive and work in with the feature wall style. Here are 5 inspiring bathroom feature walls to get your own creative juices flowing.
