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.
