Bathrooms are one of the most focal points in your home, much in the same way as your kitchen or dining room are. A bathroom is commonly used in each day of your family’s life and is often seen as a timeless statement piece in your home.
Your bathroom is a place where at the end of the day you wash away all of your stress and prepare for a relaxing evening of rest.
But when it comes to a quality bathroom renovation, this is one space in your home that often takes a backseat.
The question needs to be asked, why is this often the case in so many Australian households?
Well the answer to this question is quite simple and as it is often pointed out, bathrooms can be one of the most expensive and more difficult rooms in your home to renovate.
But there are quite a few clever tricks that can be done, to keep costs down during your renovation and still result in a stunning bathroom renovation.
Simple things such as selecting white tiles for your bathroom is a way of giving you a blank canvas, in which you can accessorize your bathroom and ensure that it remains timeless in style.
Around your vanity unit and splash backs, you can add small feature tiles which will give your bathroom that celebrity look and add interesting focal points to the room.
When it comes to installing a wash basin, be sure to opt for a double-basin as it not only looks stunning, but allows for less conflict-filled mornings in a busy household.
A wall hung basin is a functional alternative to a double-basin which looks great and pairs well with a mirrored storage cabinet. During your bathroom design, be sure to include additional extra lights near your wall mirrors and basins.

In the large majority of modern Australian family homes, the bathroom often has the smallest footprint in the home, as space is almost always sacrificed for the main bedrooms and living areas.
Now as odd as this seems, bathrooms are some of the most commonly used rooms in a busy family home and as such have encouraged the design and development of clever space saving solutions.
Bathroom renovation companies such as Milan Bathrooms, utilise clever techniques to maximise and squeeze the most out of your bathroom space.
During your bathroom renovation the tiles on your walls and floors, the colours chosen, the fittings, and fixtures are all selected on purpose to create as much space as possible.
There are many different ways in which you can optimise the space in your home bathroom and create the illusion of a much larger area. The following are a few ways in which you can make better use of your available space.
Use wall mounting
Mounting your fixtures, cabinets, vanities, basins and even your toilet to the walls of your bathroom, help you to free up much needed space and provide you with the illusion of a much larger room.
Draw your eyes
The mirrors on your bathroom wall can be paired with beautiful low hanging lights, which act to draw your eyes directly into them. This has the benefit of keeping your eyes away from the corners of your bathroom and provides your guests with a stunning wow factor.
At every opportunity you should go bigger rather than smaller when it comes to the size of your bathroom windows or skylight. Natural sunlight coming into your bathroom makes the room feel much bigger than it actually is.
Use existing structures
When it comes to renovating your bathroom, a clever way to keep your costs down is to use existing plumbing and to retrofit where possible. This option enables you to make significant changes to the look and style of your bathroom all while sticking to your budget.
Saving space in your bathroom can be as simple as being innovative during your bathroom renovation. Instead of using larger items which make your room look bigger, use smaller ones to create the illusion of space and simplicity. Installing freestanding or swivel towel rails as an example, enables you to save space while giving off a touch of class in your bathroom.
