In 2015, the kitchen as we knew it completely changed. Shelving opened up and everything went darker with cabinets going grey and metallic or dark stone accents replacing cottage style white and vanilla tiles. Come 2016 we can expect to see a major overhaul in a different room of the house, especially in terms of tile interior design – the bathroom. Everything will see a type of change or upgrade, from painted walls, cabinets, vanities to floor tiles and wall tiles.
So what is trending in local bathroom renovations and what are the most popular tiles being used in 2016?
Out With The Old: Coastal Cottage Style Whites and Vanilla Tiles
In With The New: Clean Contemporary Neutral Dark Colours
From what Nerang Tiles is seeing on the Gold Coast, most designers and DIY bathroom renovations are moving towards simplicity in a cleaner, more contemporary way. Gone are the intricate border tiles, florals and mosaics. New bathrooms aren’t losing their charm, they are just a lot cleaner and simpler. Take this Nerang Tiles bathroom renovation as an example. Only two tiles were used to upgrade and refresh this bathroom.
Out With The Old: White Paint
In With The New: Shades Of Grey
White is still a popular choice for tiles and vanities in the bathroom but there has been a real trend towards grey, especially cement look industrial imitation tiles. Whites are still present, as a contrasting colour, but the clean and dark tones of shades of grey are giving bathrooms a refreshed and modern chic look.
Out With The Old: White Subway Tile
In With The New: Sleek, Black Tiles
Normally reserved for kitchen splashbacks, black handmade rustic subway tiles are now making a move into the bathroom to compliment the trend of shades of grey in 2016. We are also seeing more and more feature walls introducing different colour grouts to frame or bring the floor tile colour up onto the wall.
