Create the Luxury Bathroom of Your Dreams

These days, many Australians feel stretched thin when dealing with the stresses of life. The importance of relaxation is increasingly recognised as an important aspect of physical and mental wellness, rather than simple self-indulgence. With that in mind, now you can justify creating a luxurious bathroom in your home to your partner! As if you needed an excuse. Here’s how to make your dream bathroom a reality without breaking the bank.

Let More Light In

If your bathroom feels too cramped to be luxurious, an easy fix is to let in more light. Install a large window and re-surface the walls with white hues. Reflect more light by hanging strategically placed, large mirrors, which can create the illusion of space through reflection.

If the view from your bathroom window isn’t very nice – or if the view in for the neighbours might be a little too nice – try using bamboo screening, pot plants, or artwork to create a pleasant vista while gaining some necessary privacy.

Let in a Breeze

Bathrooms that are mouldy and damp look awful, smell nasty and are breeding grounds for unhealthy bacteria. Creating ventilation in your bathroom will make it more pleasant on many levels. Install an exhaust fan and combine it with natural air from louvred or bi-fold windows to keep mould from developing.

Add a Touch of Style to Your Bathroom

Take the time to accessorise your bathroom and stock it with aesthetically pleasing products. Decorative glasses with tea-light candles are a simple way to create an ambient, low-light atmosphere for almost no cost. Light some incense and you’re practically in a temple bathhouse. If you have a freestanding tub, you could consider surrounding it with oversized floor candles, making a shrine to your extreme comfort. Splurge a little on scented soaps, body wash, shampoo, and so on – these little luxuries go a long way.

Underfloor Heating

Nothing ruins the mood in a bathroom like stepping onto freezing tiles. Underfloor heating is an efficient way to make sure your bathroom is a pleasure to enter, even in winter. While you’re at it, a heated towel rail may just change your life. Imagine getting out of the tub and grabbing a perfectly warmed, beautifully dry towel off the rack. It’s pure perfection.

Creating the Illusion of Space 

Unless you’re lucky enough to have a huge bathroom in your home, it’s comforting to know that there are plenty of ways to make a room feel bigger. Here are some tips:

  • Diagonally laid floor tiles make a room seem much larger compared to those laid in straight lines.
  • Wall-hung vanities and toilets are also big space savers, making the room look more open and spacious. The toilet cistern can be concealed in the wall cavity, which is more hygienic and looks ultra modern.
  • Claw-foot bathtubs create the illusion of space because they are elevated off the ground.

Upgrade Your Fittings

Little things can make a big difference in the bathroom. You can upgrade features such as light fittings, taps and handles, and even sinks and toilets, without going broke. Simply repainting or adding new handles to cabinet doors can make a big difference to the feel of a room.

Consider Atmosphere in Your New Home Build

These little things turn an average bathroom into a day spa without the hefty price tag.

Building a New Living Home has given me confidence that I can easily embark on building a home rather than buying a place, and get a better house/ home rather than a small flat. But you have to choose a builder that KNOWS how to build, that builds exactly how the design dictates. A builder who can deliver what they say, when they say. A house that won’t look daggy in years to come is important too, and New Living Homes did just that. The overall investment has worked out well too, growing in value is a short period of time.


”The idea of our brand new home is still really sinking in as we never dreamt of building or ever own. A VERY big thank you to New Living Homes for giving us a brand new home! You’ve made our dreams real!”- Grevillea 4.1, Elegance Facade

I love that my new home is mine!!!! There is nothing I don't love about it. The finishes are great and it is just perfect! I love showing it off to people and all of my friends and family love it and always compliment the design and workmanship.

‘’From the very beginning, our experience with New Living Homes has been nothing but amazing. From our very first meeting at Spring Farm, to the accounts team, to the pre-construction team, and our Construction Manager on site, nothing was ever an issue, or a question too stupid’’.

Rebecca & Steve - Jordan Springs 

‘’I have been extremely happy with my experience with New Living Homes and have told anyone and everyone about our build. Everything went smoothly and yes there were a few problems but our site manager sorted them out as quickly as he could.. Throughout all the build, nothing was too much trouble for our site manager’’

After hearing some horror stories of people building their homes we were fairly nervous to see how it would all
unfold however from the very first dealing with New Living Homes we could not fault a single thing. I would like to
give special mention to Emma from the Brooks Reach Display who was very accommodating with us pestering her
with what seemed like every week as we would be checking different things in the display home.

My experience was excellent. This was the second house I have built in 4 years and the whole experience was a pleasure from start to finish. All of the sales team were very helpful and very responsive to each and every enquiry I had.

Damian & Lauren - Spring Farm 

Building with New Living Homes has been a pleasant and enjoyable journey so far, and we know we have Sandra to thank for this. Her customer service is second to none, and has made all the difference in building this time round. My husband and I just wanted to make sure recognition and praise was given where it is due. Thanks again for everything Sandra! We are looking forward to more builds with NLH.

I always thought that building a house in Australia would be a nightmare like everyone told me but it was more than a pleasure as I was never troubled about anything. The process was as smooth as a butter.

Thank you guys, its because of your amazing team work, good flow of communication and the zeal to work hard to let people achieve their dreams, has gotten us what we really wanted. -
