What’s Hot In Bathroom Design

05 Jul 2022 by Caroma


Bringing a touch of nature into the bathroom through the use of plants as well as vistas to the outdoors via large windows and glass walls.


Because real timber is not always a practical solution on bathroom floors and walls. These are the next best thing to capture the warmth and beauty of woodgrain.


Stone, granite, timber and materials that replicate the integrity of those natural materials are big. Google ‘spa-like bathrooms’ for inspiration.


Cararra and Calacatta marble has moved into the timeless realm, it’s now all about marble in colours and bold patterns – the more interesting, the better.


Pops of brass, bronze and gold in tapware and accessories are still going strong and show no sign of disappearing any time soon!


Caroma has been passionate about water conservation for many years. Did you know that we invented the dual flush toilet way back in 1980? We’re so excited that others are catching on to this trend.


Placing the bath and shower side-by-side to create a wet zone is definitely trending in bathroom layouts. If you’ve got kids who love to splash, add a frameless glass screen to keep your wet zone separate from your dry. If not, maybe you’re brave enough to go screenless?


Embrace your curves! Round mirrors, fluted cabinetry and glass, cylindrical pendants all get the big tick of approval.


Tapware in black has been around for a while, but it seems to be stepping out in an even bigger way today.


Statement lighting is the next big thing in bathroom design. We’ve seen overhead pendant lights and now accent lights above basins, wall lighting and back-lit mirrors are now on the rise.


Sit them up on the bench or have them installed in beautiful cabinetry – whichever your preference, just make them beautiful and the hero!


Caroma Cleanflush® toilets are a trend you need to know about. The rimless design means there are less places for germs to hide and makes them easier to clean.


We don’t all have the room for a freestanding bath, but many of us want the decadence, so this is the perfect solution (especially when the overall trend in bathrooms is smaller spaces).
