I love the look of those intriguing vintage basins such as shown #4. Remind me of old school boarding houses! Why that should be appealing I'm not sure but there you go, I'm intriguing!

Some of these bathrooms are really different - and i bet they are anywhere in the world but Australia! As an industry professional, I know this might sound like I am shooting myself in the foot - but I actually think the whole concept of bathroom fitting trends is a bit pointless, other than to keep manufacturers in business. With what they cost to install, I want a bathroom that will last at least 20 years. We need more practical innovations that will improve the whole hygiene experience. I am confused about the shower pressure tech - isnt that usually something that can be controlled manually anyway? I would like to see some kind of exhaust fan that somehow stops lint and powder dust settling everywhere! Also Teflon-like basins and shower walls that resist soap scum, toothpaste and shampoo build up. Sorry about the rant. Maybe I am in the wrong part of the design industry, lol.

Free standing baths may look nice but it would be hell to clean around them. I love the big round basins that sit on top, that's what we installed. We did the entire reno (not plumbing) ourselves and it looks amazing. I custom built our bench to suit the layout. Couldn't be happier with it.
Pleased to Bijou Design we are in Australia, we gutted the original ugly bathroom and designed the new one ourselves
