Bathroom envy is alive and well across the
Australian urban landscape as
householders transform their boxy
bathrooms into resort-style private spas,
complete with the latest high-tech gadgetry,
energy and water-saving sensibilities and drop-
dead gorgeous designs.
No longer the smallest rooms in the house nor,
indeed, considered a mere service area,
bathrooms are the ideal place in the home to
unwind, relax and rejuvenate.
This trend is reflected in the fittings, fixtures
and decorations slated to appear this year and
beyond. Some of these are appealingly radical,
such as black basins, toilets and tapware, music
and mood lighting in showers and a strong trend
in the bigger bathroom to separate the toilet and
expand the space to include living areas.
Perhaps the very concept of bathrooms will
become obsolete as notions of parlours and day
spas gain popularity.

Gone are the baroque excesses of previous
years as a refined opulence moves in as the
style leader in bathroom decoration.
Muted greys and black and white continue
to dominate but it's now pretty and spare,
not mannish. Parisi's new Jazz suite has a
slightly '20s influence in its retro styling.

A focus on elegant design and relaxation is turning bathrooms into living spaces in their own right,
writes Susan Redman.
