“Do You Want It After Me?” – Who Does & Who Doesn’t Share The Bath Water?

Coronation Street fans took to Twitter last night to express their horror and despair at street favourite Tyrone, as he asked his partner Alina a very contentious question.

After discussing the whereabouts of a Weatherfield teddy bear – that was bought for their unborn child – the Corrie stalwart said “do you want it after me?” when referring to the bath water he was just about to lie in! 

This sparked a furious debate on Twitter and beyond, with many people left reeling at the thought of Alina sharing Tyrone’s bath water.

But, taking a dip in the tub after your partner isn’t as uncommon as you think! 

In a recent survey we found that almost 1-in-5 of 35-44 year olds (Tyrone’s age group) actually shared their bath water regularly. 

The figures drop off for younger (18-24) and more elderly age groups (65+) – but it would seem sharing the bath water is not as uncommon as the Twittersphere would have us believe.

Why Share The Bath Water?

There could be several reasons for sharing a bath with your partner. 

There’s the obvious romantic evening you could enjoy with a glass or two of the bubbly stuff.

But we think Tyrone’s approach is more about saving on the water bill and that he is perhaps a little more water conscious than we give him credit for!

So, to find out who WILL and who WILL NOT sit in someone else’s muck – we asked the residents of 15 cities in the UK & Northern Ireland who does and who doesn’t share a bath!

Who Is Sharing Bath Water?

As Weatherfield is a suburb of the great city of Manchester, it would be remiss of us to start anywhere else. 

And, it would appear that Tyrone is not alone on the bath sharing idea, as 21.3% of those Mancunians polled said they had no issue with sharing their bath time. 

However, it was Belfast that came out on top – by a solitary 0.1% – as 21.4% of those asked in Northern Ireland said they were happy to dip in after their partners.

Who Isn’t Sharing Bath Water?

Those UK residents sharing the sentiments of many a Corrie fan – and who are not too happy to jump in someone else’s filth – are the people of Edinburgh; with just 4.5% of those polled saying they are happy to share the tub. 

Elsewhere, Scousers & Nottinghamians are not big fans of their partners’ leftover bath water either, with just 7% of Liverpudlians and 6.6% of Nottingham residents sharing a bath.

The Full Bath Water Sharing Breakdown

So, who loves a bath share and who doesn’t? 

Check out the graphic below to see which age groups love a shared bath.

And discover which city residents near you are not averse to dipping their toes – and everything else – in their beloved’s leftover bath water!

 Do You Share Your Bath Water?

How do you feel about sharing your bath water with your partner? 

Is it something you do to save water, or do you do it for some other reason? 

Let us know if you support Tyrone’s stance on your partner jumping in the bath after you, and tell us if you’re #TeamBath or #TeamShower!

9 Reasons You Need To Shower In The Morning

What Makes An A.M Shower An Essential Vice?

As a broad generalization, two main profiles exist as it pertains to those who take showers on a daily basis – people who hit the shower in the morning and those who prefer to cleanse in the evening.

For those that tend to go for the latter option, the main reasons typically relate to feelings of relaxation and hoping to unwind after a long or stressful day. The morning showerers are usually seeking a refreshing boost to awaken the senses, and kick off their day in an invigorating fashion.

But, do the benefits of one shower routine outweigh those associated with the other?

The title of our blog has probably already indicated so, and the rest of this article will cover the numerous health advantages that would appear to set morning showers apart…

1. Improved Skin Condition

From a general perspective, showers are beneficial with regards to skin health. But morning showers are actually considered to be more advantageous.

Indeed, a shower taken early doors is a greater help in combating acne, and also in terms of balancing the natural oils on the skin.

2. Ease Stress And Anxiety

Woman taking a shower

Plenty of people experience the sensation of early-morning stress and anxiety, often linked to the prospect of the multitude of tasks that will populate the day ahead.

A morning shower offers an excellent means to tackle this stress, especially in the case of lukewarm or cold showers, as explained in greater detail on our blog – Cold Shower vs Hot Shower: What Are The Benefits?

Simply put, morning showers guarantee your body receives the oxygen it requires. Sufficient oxygen presence in the brain will help you to de-stress, no matter how busy your day ahead might be.

3. Enhanced Immunity

The immune system can be enhanced by morning showers, which will stimulate the body to produce new white blood cells. These cells are then used to help fight off illness.

Our biological clock represents the reasoning for this process only occurring to a significant extent during morning showers.

4. Cough Relief

As well as improving immunity from sickness to begin with, morning showers also provide a superb vice to relieve any existing colds or coughs.

In such a condition, phlegm and mucus can build up in the throat and chest areas overnight, making for an uncomfortable morning experience battling a sore throat and persistent cough.

With a hot morning shower, the emanating steam will loosen up these unwanted substances and help to clear your sinuses and enable you to feel much more comfortable in very little time.

For the very best effect, indulge in an aromatherapy shower with the use of scented shower gels and eucalyptus oils, accentuated by the full coverage provided by a modern shower system.

5. Boosted Energy

Probably the most simple reason on the list. Morning showers represent a preferable choice for many due to the sense of rejuvenation they provide.

All in all, they deliver the perfect refreshing energy boost to kick start your day, preparing you in earnest for whatever tasks lie ahead.

6. Rids The Body Of Toxins

A multitude of toxins emerge from the skin whilst we sweat during sleeping overnight. And these same toxins can even formulate whilst relaxing in the high temperature surrounds of a home bathtub, for instance.

Morning showers are an ideal vice for washing these away, and therefore ridding the body of toxins.

7. Better Hair & Scalp Condition

By taking regular morning showers, you’ll notice an improvement in the condition of your hair and scalp.

If you are dealing with an extremely oily scalp and hair, even an evening shower will not prevent the areas from remaining oily to some extent by the following morning.

Taking frequent morning showers is an obvious but failsafe method to dodge or curtail this issue.

8. Muscle Ache Relaxation

Any niggling muscle aches or pains can be alleviated greatly by taking a morning shower, ultimately relaxing the body and achieving a comfortable physical state.

Essentially, morning showers can help you feel far less tense from both a mental and physical perspective, providing the perfect foundations to attack the day ahead from your very own shower enclosure.

9. Increased Fertility

It might surprise you to learn that morning showers have been linked to increased fertility levels in the male population.

So if couples are having difficulty conceiving, or even just planning ahead to conceive, it is worth the male indulging in frequent morning showers to garner the potential positive effects.

Again, cold showers can be especially useful in this regard. The cold water can trigger testosterone, and more importantly, research indicates that male sperm production is enhanced dramatically after just a week’s worth of cold morning showers.

Spotlight on International Projects

Like most industries, the construction sector experienced a whirlwind of changes in 2020 and beyond. With the cost of building materials skyrocketing and labor shortages increasing, more are turning to prefab building solutions for their lean manufacturing techniques and ability to help keep projects on track. As a result, the market for modular is growing as the construction industry continues to adopt prefabricated solutions.

Here at SurePods we’re proud to support this growth—and even see it extend to distant places. With wide-ranging experience, our modular bathroom pods can ship to Canada and select international locations, depending on project needs. To showcase how we’ve seen modular building’s evolving technology help fuel innovation across the globe, we’re taking a look back at some noteworthy international projects that we’ve worked on to date:

Nassau, Bahamas

Situated on Nassau’s northern shore, Grand Hyatt Baha Mar is a spectacular 1,800-room oceanfront resort that opened spring 2017. With two distinct towers and a variety of rooms, suites and residences, SurePods was the perfect match to prefabricate the beautiful custom bathroom units, all with 5-star quality. The pods were fabricated in Orlando, FL, and shipped to the jobsite via ocean container, eliminating thousands of man hours from the project site.

Ontario, Canada

In the development of their new retirement community located in Ontario, Canada, Seasons Retirement Homes enlisted SurePods to deliver 147 beautifully designed bathroom pods for seamless “plug-and-play” installs across the U.S. border. With the grand opening scheduled for early 2022, SurePods was able to provide quality bathrooms in line with a tight and efficient construction schedule. Plus, each pod features materials and fixtures all carefully selected by the project design team.

Montreal, QC, Canada

Taking up over two full blocks in the heart of downtown Montreal, the Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM) is one of North America’s largest academic medical centers. To help replace the outdated facility’s bathrooms in such a large volume, SurePods took on their largest P3 project to date. Supplying 669 pods, our single-source approach supported the institution’s clinical design and programming solution that stresses quality and expedient solutions.

How to Get a High-End Bathroom Renovation on a Budget

A glam and luxe bathroom renovation is not so out-of-reach with a tight budget. At Novalé, we pride ourselves on producing high-quality modern bathroom designs with flawless finishes, no matter your budget preference. We take pride in our high-end bathroom renovations with flexible pricing arrangements catering to the budget needs of our clients.

Novalé offers pricing models that can be made more affordable or extravagant depending on the clients’ needs, but either way, the pricing does not sacrifice our overall quality.

While first and foremost, we provide a fixed renovation quote, so you can remain assured no hidden costs will pop up. Each renovation is still a bespoke design that is customised to suit the specific measurements of your space. So, homeowners should note that the cost of a bathroom renovation depends on many considerations; some include:

The size and ideal layout of the bathroom.The scope of the building works, which refers to the hiring hours of tradespeople, who run the plumbing, draining, tiling, electrical, gas fitting and all other renovation services required.The fittings and fixtures selected, refers to the number of old items being replaced in the bathroom, such as sinks, tapware, cabinetry styles, finishes, tiles, paint colours, lighting and much more.The dwelling type of your home. Is it full brick or fibro? Is it a single or double-storey or an apartment? What is the access to the bathroom like etc.?

Bathroom renovations are one of the most effective ways to increase your property’s value, which is why we aim to make everyone’s dream bathroom possible by offering ‘Standard’ and ‘Superior’ pricing ranges, to satisfy a range of budgets and aesthetics.

Standard Modern Bathroom Design Tips

If you’re looking to spend between $17,000 and $25,000 to transform your tired, old bathroom into a gorgeous and functional space, then your project will fall into Novalé’s ‘Standard’ pricing range. Although every modern bathroom design comes in various costs and sizes, so get in touch with Novalé today for a quotation tailored to your bathroom renovation ideas and desires.

Bathroom renovation designs with a smaller budget are all about creating luxury through little touches; this can be achieved by investing in one or two more expensive hero pieces.

When choosing to spend your budget, functional options which suit your family’s needs should be prioritised. For example, invest in a statement vanity with lots of smart storage for a big family, or invest in double sinks for a master ensuite. The planning stage of a bathroom renovation idea is fundamental to avoid over or under spending down the track.

It is crucial for a quality and affordable bathroom renovation idea to consider what can stay before undertaking the renovation. A considerable amount of a budget can be saved if quality bathroom items are kept, allowing for more flexibility to replace and update other elements. Notably, the existing placement of plumbing and electrical structures should be kept the same to give the homeowners more flexibility to afford more expensive fixtures, accessories and tapware.

Superior Modern Bathroom Design Tips

Novalé’s ‘Superior’ pricing range caters to those that desire a greater sense of opulence in their bathroom, and are able to spend between $25,000 and $35,000. However, every modern bathroom design is bespoke, so get in touch with a Novalé Customer Service Consultant today. Get a detailed quotation for your dream bathroom renovation idea and ensure you fully understand all aspects of the quote and the bathroom renovation process.

In more detailed bathroom renovations, there is more shopping required. Your selections can be more efficient if you choose a basin first and then coordinate appropriate tapware and accessories to match, everything from the showerhead to the towel rack. Selecting products from the same brand will also make your bathroom renovation easier, as the styles and colours will match up exactly, and all products will have the same warranties. So, if something goes wrong, the solution is more straightforward when dealing with one company.

Get the Look: Urban Style Bathrooms

At Novalé, we believe a bathroom is more than just a place to wash; bathrooms are now evolved spaces to escape, relax and reflect. With improved technology and modern lifestyle trends, it is easier than ever to design a bathroom to suit your specific taste and functional requirements.

Picking one bathroom design can be difficult for clients as there are so many options available. With our tailored bathroom renovation ideas deciding on one distinct design is simple and allows your whole renovation to come together seamlessly. Our design teams worked with the talented Architect Dino Raccanello to develop our six-core bathroom renovation ideas. Each bathroom style idea has its own unique beauty, meaning, function and form.

At Novalé, we have the bathroom inspiration to suit anyone, ensuring your modern bathroom renovation leads to the feel-good experience that dreams are made of. In particular, the intricate style of an urban bathroom is explored in-depth in this blog.

What is an Urban Style Bathroom?

Initially, the urban style was defined by inner-city living with a moody and dramatic vibe, blending elements of contemporary, industrial and modern bathroom designs together. While urban chic embraces a warehouse and loft structure, the key stylistic component is contrasting decor. For example, exposed brick and heavy metal railings can be softened by open planned living, and metal framed mirrors, can complement light colour furnishings and rich fabrics.

The key colour palette to the urban style is the refined and sophisticated light neutral colourway made up of whites, blacks and greys. Whilst simultaneously allowing contrasting décor to take centre stage, a brighter colour, commonly yellow, is featured to compliment the darker colours, giving a modern bathroom design more life.

Your urban style bathroom will not be complete without a statement piece. Feature tiles are a simple way to incorporate a statement piece in your urban concept bathroom; tiles that exhibit a graphic effect and cool colour palette are excellent choices. In addition, patterned towels, large artworks or floor to ceiling curtains will add texture to your urban oasis.

Dramatic backdrops and statement accessories work together to create a dash of the urban style in your modern bathroom design. Check out Novalé’s high-quality bathroom renovation projects recently completed throughout Sydney.

Urban Tiles: Terrazzo Stone

White bevelled-edge metro tiles – once used for practical purposes in hospitals and metro stations – has been considered an urban tile trend for a long time. Although, at Novalé, we have recently seen terrazzo stone become a staple choice for modern bathroom designs as it offers a more exciting twist for a dramatic backdrop.

Terrazzo stone is polished concrete featuring speckled chips of marble, quartz, granite, glass, and other suitable materials. White is a classic pick for bathrooms as the colour symbolises cleanliness, which is what everyone wants to achieve – particularly post 2020.

Terrazzo tiles can be mirrored onto walls, floors and benchtops to create a seamless effect. The stone’s best attribute is total customizability; manufacturers can produce various hues and styles of the stone base and the speckled chips according to personal desires.

Most popularly, terrazzo tiles are designed with a pared-back neutral palette, making this stone one of the most versatile materials for a bathroom. Whilst adding interesting texture and shapes, creating the perfect base for an urban style modern bathroom design. Opt for a dark grout in between such light-coloured tiles to create a more dramatic look, reinforcing the urban style statement piece.

Urban Tapware and Accessories

Tapware and accessories are the most straightforward bathroom aspects to upgrade; quite cheaply, a tried bathroom can look state-of-the-art with some new and shiny tapware. As of late, gold tapware has become increasingly popular, although this material corrodes more quickly than other stainless steels and can often clash with the monochromic statements in an urban style and modern bathroom design.

Black matte is now the star of Urban bathrooms. This modern bathroom design staple gives excellent durability alike traditional stainless-steel tapware and offers an “on-trend” stylish finish.

“When black tapware first came in, people were really nervous about it. ‘It’s a bit strong for me”, ‘It will probably be out of fashion within the next few years.’ No, it hasn’t. It’s been with us for a really long time now. It’s a strong option that isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. And black tapware goes beautifully with coloured tiles.” says Neale Whitaker, one of Australia’s foremost style gurus.

How Much Does an Urban Style Bathroom Renovation Cost?

An Urban modern bathroom design is achievable with both standard and superior materials, fittings and fixtures. We offer two pricing ranges, ‘Standard’ and ‘Superior’, to satisfy a range of budgets and aesthetics.

A ‘Standard’ bathroom design generally falls into the price range of $17,000-$25,000.

5 Peaceful Palettes to Inspire Your Bathroom Renovation

When life becomes stressful, the need to withdraw and recharge becomes stronger than ever. If you are looking to lower your day-to-day stress levels, the colour palette of your bathroom can help soothe anxieties and stresses from your day.

Besides, what’s a better activity to entice clam than a hot soak in a soothing tub surrounded by a beautiful haven?

It’s no secret that colour influences our emotions. So, whether you’re seeking to regain some Zen or just sick of gazing at the same old walls. Here are five modern bathroom designs featuring the most soothing palettes to inspire your next bathroom renovation.

Natural Bathroom Renovation

As technology continues to pervade every area of our lives, more and more of us are yearning for nature like never before and seeking innovative methods to incorporate organic materials into our homes. Particularly, this natural design aesthetic is seen in many coastal homes and Bathroom Renovations in Newcastle, as the style perfectly reflects the easy-going lifestyles many of us beach-side Aussies live.

Although, the ocean view is not required! As this modern Bathroom Renovation Terrey Hills encompasses a natural aesthetic even in the suburbs. With the large skylight as its main focal feature, a glorious amount of sunlight creeps in, making the space seem brighter and larger, with a fresh and inviting feel.

We recommend avoiding picking too many vivid and strong features to ensure a relaxing atmosphere. Instead, choose one or two features’ colours, like this natural bathroom renovation, which includes a good balance of earthy hues and browns, mixed with clean tones like silver and white.

Serene Bathroom Renovation

Often inspired by ‘a day spa’, there’s something about a minimalist and calming serene palette that can transform a bathroom into a haven. The serene bathroom design evokes clean, classic, and incredibly relaxing feelings, with little restraint and a good quantity of marble, resulting in a breathtakingly tranquil finish.

Even though this modern bathroom design is popular with sea-side homes, we are seeing many suburban bathroom renovations in Penrith and across Western Sydney wanting to upgrade their spaces to a more relaxing and luxurious bathroom design.

Although this Bathroom Renovation in Kellyville Ridge is far from the beach, the design is inspired by ‘the day spa’ aesthetic. With a soft and harmonising colour palette, this modern bathroom design screams serene, generating a sense of poise inside this suburban home. Particularly with serene modern bathroom designs, it’s all about colour harmony. The more subdued and less striking a palette is, the more relaxing the bathroom may be.

Escape Bathroom Renovation

The escape bathroom is a quiet retreat within the home, inspired by our favourite vacation spots. These modern bathroom designs create a solid and well-balanced room with stunning natural features and straightforward finishes.

With soft natural light and earthy tones, the minimalism of the escape bathroom heightens your senses. So it’s simple to understand why you’ll want to make this meditative bathroom a focal point in your house.

Again, even though this modern bathroom design is popular with sea-side homes, many small bathroom renovations in Redfern and across Sydney’s highly populated CBD incorporates the escape design in their urban spaces as a way to retreat from the hustle and bustle of city living.

In particular, this Bathroom Renovation Redfern creates an escape aesthetic with wooden cabinetry and wood-like tiles. It’s an unexpected but successful escape design pairing.

We love the matching curved bathroom installations in this Bathroom Renovation Redfern from the circular bathtub, rounded basin sink, spherical fixtures to the towel rack. In combination, these round features really softens the ambience of the modern bathroom design and provides optimum relaxation for its users.

Our design team largely focuses on incorporating wood as a feature into most escape bathrooms as this style is fundamentally inspired by ‘nature’ to create a peaceful bathroom. When combined with a bathroom’s usually cold atmosphere, the wood adds warmth and makes the space much more welcoming.

Vintage Bathroom Renovation

Our vintage bathroom renovations give homeowners the traditional appearance and feel of yesteryear while still allowing for a luxurious but modern design. Vintage aesthetics are found all around Sydney, from Bathroom Renovations in Penrith to bathroom renovations in Redfern. The best-designed vintage bathrooms have a meticulous balance between period elegance and traditional appeal without compromising modern convenience.

This Bathroom Renovation Mount Colah marries old and new styles with careful placement of dark tiles in the main area against a neutral marble backdrop, seamlessly creating a perfect monochrome bathroom.

The vanity in particular highlights the sprinkles of vintage styling throughout this bathroom, with a mix of old-fashioned cabinetry and traditional knobs, contrasted to the modern vessel sink and contemporary stone vanity top.

Matte black is a stunning feature in this modern bathroom design, as a matt finish gives real colour depth as it reflects the least amount of light, producing a feeling of stillness. In addition, Low-sheen or matt finishes will help blur sharp edges and hard surfaces in spaces by absorbing and softening the light. This creates a gentle, blanketing effect ideal for any peaceful bathroom renovation.

Timeless Bathroom Renovation

The term “timeless” is frequently used to describe elegance and sophistication. Our timeless modern bathroom designs incorporate high-quality fabrics, accessories, and colours for a traditional and elegant look that will last a lifetime. Such a classic and ageless design is perfect for any home in Sydney – from bathroom renovations Penrith and all the way to Redfern –  the timeless bathroom creates a sense of luxury anywhere while maintaining the practicality and use of the space.

This timeless Bathroom Renovation Riverview features the perfect variation of whites. This assorted but clean colour palette is seen throughout the modern bathroom design, from the sink bowl to the vanity top to the hexagon feature tiles. In combination, the glossy layers of white on the cabinets and vanity shine unapologetically while adding texture and warmth into the room. Even though today’s typical bathroom trend is matte tiles, the lustrous spa-like finish of these polished tiles feels much more expensive.

With such exquisite colours and luxury accents presented in this bathroom renovation, it’s clear the timeless bathroom design evokes soothing feelings. Cucumber slices may be added for a quick reduction of stress!

Creating a Timeless Aesthetic in Your Bathroom

A timeless interior achieves a sophisticated feeling with curated styling, but simultaneously feels inviting with a homely and simple aesthetic. A homes laundry and bathroom needs longevity and durability, but what colours are timeless? What materials can withstand daily wear and tear? Can décor be aesthetically timeless? Novalé reveals our ultimate secrets to creating a timeless looking bathroom renovation.

The secret algorithm to achieve the perfect balance starts with a simple base. With plain cabinetry, tiles, fixtures and neutral palettes, homeowners are then free to add dramatic, minimal or personal styling on top.

“Don’t be afraid to be bold with your design choices. You can create any number of looks if you start with a simple grey or white cabinetry as your base – then accessorise creatively,” says Neale Whitaker one of Australia’s foremost style gurus. Learn more about modern Bathroom Renovation Trends According to the Block 2020, many of which inspires Novalé modern bathroom renovations.

Timeless Tiles: Marble

Marble is a natural stone that can be cut into a range of shapes. Natural stone is entirely unique as no two pieces are cut alike, meaning marble tiles have varying tones and patterns.

Aesthetically, the look of a marble title has a white background with some light or sometimes dark grey veining throughout the stone. As the stone’s base is white, it’s hard to go wrong when trying to achieve a minimalist and timeless colour scheme. Marble is a title of pure sophistication and sheer luxurious beauty, creating a warm feeling in any ordinary space.

Carrara marble is the most popular variety of marble titles, named after its origin; this stone is quarried from the city of Carrara in Tuscany, Italy. Although, if you are looking for a cheaper and a lower maintenance title, some alternate stones can simulate the same look as marble, for example, porcelain.

These days with so many technological advancements, it is hard to tell the difference between a manufactured marble stone and a natural marble. Besides, manufactured stone provides many more benefits such as high resistance to liquids, stains, scratches and heat.

Timeless Tapware and Accessories

Fixtures are a great way to add a feature colour and a warm texture into your bathroom or laundry space. However, the key to timeless looking tapware is unified colours. Whatever colour you choose, make sure the fittings, accessories and even the towels rails match together, to achieve a cohesive but striking aesthetic for your bathroom renovation.

Although matte black, copper and gold metals have become a modern trend for bathroom tapware and accessories, chrome is still Australia’s number one choice for a timeless bathroom renovation.

The continued appeal of chrome is based on practicality, as silver metal is easier to clean and maintain, with strong resistance to scratches and fingerprints. Aesthetically chrome’s silver colour and shiny texture will seamlessly fit into any bathroom’s style and palette. Chrome tapware is such a popular choice that you would be hard-pressed to find a design that isn’t available in its shiny finish.

Timeless Colour Palettes: Monochromatic

A monochromatic colour palette takes one colour and adds varying degrees of black, white and grey into the mix, to create a varied range of tones to use through a space. Interior designers refer to this colour palette as the best way to achieve a minimalistic and timeless design while maintaining some sort of interest through tonal accents.

For your next timeless bathroom renovation, simply mix marble tiles with matching chrome tapware and accessories for an elegant but straightforward monochromatic aesthetic. Sure to impress guests for the test of time whilst allowing for flexibility and elaborate styling.

Timeless Styling and Décor

While some colours and materials can be ‘stylish’ no matter the year, timeless décor is more complicated. Most might disagree, but décor cannot always be timeless. However, functional items will always be in style, such as plants, candles, and sentimental family objects like photos and homemade art.

Hence why the minimalist base is the key to making a room feel fresh and updated for a long time. As a homeowner develops new styles; they can easily change the décor of their bathroom rather than having to renovate the entire space because they can no longer stand the thought of a lime green bathroom.

For example, any type of styling will match well with white marble tiles and chrome fixtures, from bold 70s décor, your Grandmas kitschy vase and everything in between. Remember “If you’re looking at being a bit more adventurous and a bit more decorative in the bathroom, then my best advice is a little goes a long way” according to Neale Whitaker.

It’s Time to Level-Up Your Laundry’s Functionality

Ideally, the layout of your home should be separated into resting areas and services areas. Your home’s laundry should be located in the same area as the kitchen; this creates a good split between quiet areas for relaxing to loud amenity areas, where washing machines and refrigerators are continually running.

Although if your home is on a small lot and space is limited, you can integrate your laundry into the service rooms like the bathroom or kitchen. Again, tucking the loud washing machines away from chill-out zones and entertaining areas.

The Best Functional Laundry Storage

The first step in your modern renovation should be to choose laundry appliances, ensuring that the cabinetry fits around desired devices and not the other way around—details such as bench depth and the direction in which doors open need to be considered first.

When planning your laundry’s layout, the next priority should be to add as much varied storage as possible. Modern laundries should include a good combination of cupboards, benchtop surface, drawers, clothing poles, open and closed storage. The following are the most popular and useful types of storage we use in Novalé modern laundry renovations.

Tall cupboards which reach from the floor to the ceiling are best used to store long and oddly shaped items like brooms, mops and vacuum cleaners. Maximise the highest shelves to store chemicals and cleaning products, so they are out of reach from children and pets.

Horizontal poles and railings are convenient additions to your laundry and relatively easy to install. Air dry your clothes on indoor rails for crease-free clothes and avoid the ironing.

Speaking of ironing boards – today, there are many built-in and hideaway models available, the perfect way to save space and reduce clutter. Most models fold away effortlessly onto the wall, and include some form of smart technology, like safety timers, motion detected lighting and height-adjustable features.

Increase the floor space in your laundry with built-in laundry baskets, Novalé can integrate unique features, like clever slide-out designs, into custom cabinetry. Unlike typical laundry baskets, custom built-ins allow for more organisation, for example, opt for two baskets to sort light clothing from dark clothing into separate bins.

The best part of renovating from scratch is making sure all your unique requirements are met, including your pets! While laundries are commonly an ideal spot for pets when their owners are out of the house, it is essential to make sure the area is as comfortable as possible for them, with outside access where possible. This might also include a built-in spot for your dogs’ bed, a designated place for a cat’s litter box or extra bench space for a pet cage.

Adequate ventilation is often an overlooked consideration when designing your perfect modern laundry. Particularly for homes which often airdry washing inside their laundry without proper ventilation materials can be susceptible to mould build-up. In these cases, open storage is the solution, from recessed shelving and glass door cabinets. It allows fabrics to dry fast before the next use to eliminate most possibilities of germs spreading. The right styling in open storage can give your laundry a designer look —the perfect place to display plants, family pictures or fresh towels.

All in all, the most essential element for a functional space is to ensure structural materials are suitable for the area’s desired use. Make sure each aspect in your laundry is ideal for a wet and humid room, where slip-proof and non-porous materials are chosen to avoid likely accidents to household members and the materials themselves.

A Much-Needed Laundry Detox

The laundry is often the junk drawer for the entire house and primarily an over-ignored room. Anything that is out of expiry, you no longer have use for or hasn’t been used recently can be removed and replaced.

When detoxing your laundry, it is vital to make sure the chemicals and other cleaning products you use are not harmful, especially when you have pets and children in your home. Opt for organic products with plant-based ingredients; this will give you peace of mind that your clothes and home are free of dangerous toxins and chemicals.
