How to get Inspired for a Bathroom Renovation

Undertaking a bathroom renovation can be an overwhelming experience. With so many possibilities, it can be hard to know where to start. At Novalé we believe that the first part of the design process should most definitely be searching for inspiration. With the changes in technology, inspiration is at our fingertips and can be easily captured and browsed anywhere, any time.

Below are some useful sources of inspiration that will get you inspired for your bathroom renovation journey.

Interior Design Magazines
Next time you are out shopping, be sure to check out some of the various interior design and renovation magazines that are on the market. These magazines contain current and up to date information on trends and styles, making them great for discovering what’s new in bathroom design.

Interior Design/Architecture Books
There are many inspiring interior design and architecture books that can be purchased in bookstores and online. Interior design and architecture books are often categorised into different time periods or design styles, making it easy for you to view inspiration on design elements that you are interested in.

TV Renovation Shows
Television shows such as Grand Designs and the Block, often provide creative solutions for bathroom design. As the contestants are in competition, they are likely to go that extra mile and provide stand out designs that are highly inspirational, as well as on trend and luxurious.

Forums, Blogs & Social Media
Browsing online blogs and social media can provide easy access to hundreds of websites and apps that offer inspiration for bathroom design and interior design in general. Online resources such as Houzz Australia, offer a wealth of beautiful inspiring imagery, as well as design and home improvement tips. Accessing inspiration online is generally free and is a great place to start when renovating your bathroom.

There are many interior design apps available today that allow you to virtually design your bathroom. These apps are particularly helpful if you aren’t great at visualising your bathroom transformation.

Social media apps such as Instagram and Pinterest are fantastic for finding and saving inspiration. Pinterest is particularly great, as it allows you to create boards that are dedicated to whatever you choose. You could create a Pinterest board for ‘bathroom design’ and then save all the beautiful imagery you find to that board, so that you can easily return to those images at a later date. Instagram also allows you to save imagery through bookmarking posts, and is a very popular means of searching for inspiration online.

Mobile Phones
Smart phones these days are fitted with exceptional cameras. When you are out and about, you may see a bathroom fitting or fixture that inspires you. Keep an eye out and take photos of beautiful bathrooms that you encounter and store them to view again later.

Recent Renovations
You may actually know someone who has recently renovated their bathroom. If you do, then why not pay them a visit? They might have some beautiful features in their bathroom that you would like to include in yours. It also gives you a chance to find out which bathroom renovation company completed the renovation and judge the quality of their workmanship. You may wish to speak to them about renovating your bathroom.
