Michaela's Top Trending Designs, Colours, and Products

Key Design Insights
from Interior Designer, Michaela

Our in-house interior designer, Michaela, is passionate about the latest trends and innovative products that elevate bathroom design. We sat with Michaela to talk about her favourite features and brands, let's dive in!

Bold Feature Tiles


Bold feature tiles are here to stay, and I’m very excited to see all of the beautiful sage, maroon and terracotta tones popping up. Never underestimate the power of a beautiful feature wall.

Luxurious Showers


Let’s start encouraging installing a handheld shower separately from a shower head. It makes the space look much more luxurious and elegant as opposed to a traditional twin shower rail.

Importance of Lighting


Lighting should never be the last priority in a bathroom; it’s the product that sets the atmosphere for the space. A mirror with downlights is just a mirror, but a mirror with sconces or pendant lights is a statement. I am also loving a statement shaving cabinet that is both beautiful and functional.


Key Pieces for Renovation


Choose three main products in your bathroom renovation and sculpt your project around these key pieces. Think fluted freestanding bath, curved wall hung vanity, or bold statement feature tiles.
