9. Location: Melbourne, Victoria Why we love it: This is a great example of a small monochrome bathroom done well. Taking the tiles halfway up the wall is always a good cost-cutting option in a bathroom, and the black adds a defining element that takes it out of the ordinary.
Whether you’ve been living in your home for 15 years or 15 weeks, a bathroom declutter will save you time getting ready in the morning. Plus, you’ll be surprised by how much accumulated clutter you can easily let go of, giving you much more open space.
This bathroom features a black and white ‘White Moorish Night’ encaustic tile from Jatana on the floor to complement the bathroom’s monochromatic colour palette rather than contrast with it. “Encaustic tiles work particularly well on floors as they become softer with age and feel incredible underfoot,” says Mansur.
Solution: Choose complementary finishesWhen selecting materials and finishes, make sure there is a common visual thread that ties them to ones used in the rest of your home. The tiles or stone in your bathroom, for example, should relate to those in your kitchen to create a sense of cohesion.
By doing a little bit each day in bite-sized chunks – and getting other members of the household to do the same – things don’t pile up and become overwhelming. Create a roster so that everyone knows what they have to do and when. Get your kids to help more at home
