Monochrome magic

According to the latest Housing Industry Association (HIA) Kitchens and Bathrooms Report, an estimated 219,000 bathroom renovations took place across Australia in the last financial year with an average $17,000 spent on each renovation. The report reveals a demand by renovators looking for cutting-edge design trends to set their renovations apart.

One prominent trend making a comeback in the bathroom space is the colour black. From classic to contemporary, black suits most bathroom styles and has the ability to transform an understated bathroom into a feature space. Stegbar, Australia’s manufacturer of shower screens, splashbacks and glass panels, has launched its Grange Black Showerscreen range. The latest addition to the Grange collection, the new black finish is the ideal style statement for any bathroom design and layout – and is especially complementary to the current trend of black fixtures, hardware and accessories.

“Not just an on-trend hue, black is also timeless and ever-sophisticated,” says Christine Evans, Stegbar Marketing Director. “The perfect choice for monochromatic bathrooms, black is also adaptable to many other colour palettes and has the ability to both stand out or blend in.”

With the new black finish available in both the Grange Inline Showerscreen and Overlap Showerscreen, the sleek lines of the black slim perimeter frame act like the frame of an artwork – allowing the shower fixtures and splashback to take centre stage, and helping to create a visually spacious bathroom. Also practical in design, the slim perimeter frame has no hidden corners, making it easy to clean and maintain.

Expertly engineered, the Grange Inline and Overlap Showerscreens are available in a range of configurations to suit any bathroom layout. Sleek in design and look, the Inline Showerscreen is a pivot door system developed to withstand everyday use. While the Grange Overlap Showerscreen is a semi-frameless structure with a functional difference – an overlapping pivot door to minimise water leakage.

Stegbar’s Black Bathroom Style Tips

  • The industrial trend is still current and is easily translated into bathroom design. Look to concrete sink basins and matte black tapware to create the look. Antique-style mirrors will also add to the industrial style.
  • For a bold, modern bathroom keep tapware, fixtures and hardware all black and shapes geometric to unify the look.
  • Traditional-style bathrooms can be achieved with black and white patterned floor tiles, classic-style sinks and chrome tapware and fixtures for timeless elegance.
  • To keep a black and white bathroom from feeling too stark and cold, use wooden details to warm the space up.
  • Mirrors and materials with reflective qualities are an ideal way to add depth and interest.
  • Include Stegbar’s Nanoclean coating on your shower screen that will help to save cleaning time. The coating bonds with glass and forms an invisible protective barrier that minimises dirt and grime build up. To keep the shower screen clean, a quick wipe down with a microfiber cloth once a week is all that’s needed.

No matter the bathroom design or style, the Grange Black Showerscreen effortlessly adds a touch of refinement and luxury.
