More than mirror mirror on the wall

Why do we love beautiful bathrooms so much? It’s never the biggest room on a floor plan, it’s not a room for entertaining and in comparison to other rooms in the family home, not a lot of time is spent in the bathroom.

JELD-WEN Australia Director of Marketing Bruce Tosello said bathrooms together with kitchens are still the most renovated rooms in a home. It’s a shared responsibility where the final result will be all the better for the sharing of ideas, expertise and information.

“Homeowners are naturally looking to modernise and transform their bathrooms to make them reflect their own design tastes and current trends” said Mr Tosello.

One such current trend that has tremendous appeal is the use of glass panels in the bathroom as an alternative to tiles. The absolute timeless elegance of glass ensures this innovative idea is here to stay.

We might love a big bathroom but no one likes to clean it! Glass panels are both easy to clean and extremely durable. No longer do you have to waste endless amounts of time scrubbing off unsightly mould or grime build up in your bathroom as glass panels have no grout lines, reducing the chances of oil, dirt, mould and grime build up.

In addition, Stegbar’s coloured glass panels offer complete moisture resistance, essential in any wet area and as your custom colour is applied to the back of the glass panel, it won’t peel, crack or fade.

Glass panels also have enormous aesthetic appeal. They can be used subtly to enhance the space of the bathroom or they can be a dramatic feature.

Homeowners have the flexibility to select both the colour and size of their panels. You may just choose to cover a specific area or opt for a floor to ceiling wall installation for a very distinctive look

According to the most recent HIA JELD-WEN Kitchens and Bathrooms Report, 39% of people surveyed said the average age of a renovated bathroom is between 16-20 years with a further 25% stating an age range of between 11-15 years.

It is important to consider how you want your bathroom to suit your needs now and in years to come. It is not a room to take lightly when selecting fixtures and fittings.

Do your homework, trust experts in the industry like Stegbar and reap the long term rewards of a bathroom that is both stylish and functional.
