Bathroom Tile Design
Renovating a bathroom and selecting the bathroom tile design can be both an exciting and rewarding experience as you anticipate creating an environment that calms and relaxes.
To refresh or renovate your bathroom requires a certain amount of time, energy and planning. Even the simple re-styling job can take time. Then there are the endless choices on offer for people looking to add a new vanity, bathtub or even create a walk-in shower. Selecting the right tiles can also feel like an uphill struggle.
In general, it helps if you have an understanding of what you want, what works in your bathroom and what are currently trending in bathroom design. In this article the team at Style Plus shed some light on tile options.
Bathroom tile design colour trends
When it comes to colour, grey has been a dominant trend seen through bathroom interiors, varying in shades from cool grey to a moody charcoal. Grey tiles will contrast well with porcelain basins, stone features and matt back finishes. For mood, grey evokes calm and relaxing emotions, making it a suitable choice for a bathroom.
Matte, nude and neutral colours are on the rise. These will be perfect combinations for darker greys, and they will introduce some contrast to the overall colour scheme.
New Zealanders love to use natural products in their design and bringing timber styling into a bathroom that creates a natural and breathable space. Timber tiles are now available in many different colours, extra-long 1.8m lengths, and lots of different styles, including distressed finishes.
Interior Design Black Appliances
Interior Design Black Appliances add an element of sophistication and style to kitchen design.
When it comes to black, it is definitely a colour that is often considered for a kitchen renovation space design or new build kitchen space design.
At the planning stage of your kitchen design choosing a colour for your kitchen appliances is a big decision and you want to get it right because you are going to be living with it for a while.
Two colours and one material dominate choices today. They are white, black and stainless steel. At Style Plus we consider sleek black appliances as a good alternative to high end stainless steel and white coloured appliances.
While stainless steel can attract fingerprints, black appliances tend to hold up better against the assault of sticky little hands and fingers.
The team at Style Plus review 6 black kitchen appliances to add that element of sophistication and style to your kitchen design:
Why Undertake Kitchen Renovations?
Kitchen renovations can be a major undertaking. So why undertake a kitchen renovation?
When it comes to renovating your kitchen, the reasons to change your kitchen may seem endless.
Maybe you are trying to increase the value of your home ready for a sale, or maybe you are just ready to change your dated kitchen for one that better suits your family’s lifestyle.
WORN OUT & DATED KITCHEN
You may be in a position that your kitchen might simply be worn out and disfunctional. Peeling counter tops and doors, broken or missing cabinet doors and outdated appliances do not inspire gourmet cooking or family gatherings. The deteriorated kitchen has simply outlived its usefulness and needs more than a cosmetic upgrade, it needs a renovation!
A key incentive for a kitchen renovation is to create a space to best suit your family’s needs and lifestyle. Looking at how the current kitchen space is utilised or in many cases underutilised by the family is a starting point.
INCREASE THE VALUE OF YOUR HOME
At Style Plus we believe that not all renovation projects are created equal. In general, people who are looking at purchasing a house will look at the kitchen and bathrooms first. While these spaces can be the most costly to renovate they are more likely to pay for themselves.
Homeowners often renovate their kitchen space to increase the value or make the home more appealing before selling the property. A renovated kitchen, modern, on-trend and polished will appeal to prospective home buyers more than a worn and outdated one.
