It’s nice to be showered with praise for world-class bathroom design (And awards too.)

Feb 3, 2020 | Awards

Keeping up to date with all the latest trends is no easy matter.

Just ask the very cool (in the 80s at least) wearers of lycra leggings, leotards and leg warmers.

Or those individuals, male and female, sporting the equally hip ‘big hair, don’t care’ look.

And just in case your memory doesn’t stretch back that far, there’s lots more instances much closer to home.

Like computer gaming, for example.

How’s your Sega console going? Managed to finish Sonic the Hedgehog yet?

You get the drift: nothing stays the same for long.

This is particularly true in the housing industry. And it’s especially so in bathroom design.

Which is what makes everyone at Ventura Home Group so proud to be consistently recognised for the quality and up-to-the-minute styling of our bathroom designs.

(Modesty forbids, but we have in fact been the recipient of over 25 bathroom design awards since 2007.)

This industry recognition is testament to the drive, vision and, it must be said, sheer obsessiveness of our  design team.

To say they eat, drink and sleep everything related to bathroom trends all around the world would be an understatement.

Whether it’s travelling overseas to attend the latest trade shows, or scouring the net for worldwide inspiration, there’s not one single product or look that isn’t on their radar.

And once they’ve assimilated all this information, they get to work – producing bathroom designs that are stunning and functional in equal measure.

Take the Yallingup Retreat, for example, winner of the 2018 Display Home of the Year and Bathroom of the Year.

Described by HIA as a ‘standout entry’ because of its ‘great design elements executed to a high standard’, this hugely impressive space features a freestanding bath with double vanity basements, wall mounted taps and finger-pull vanity cabinets.

Or more recently The Envy which took out the 2019 HIA Bathroom in a Display Home award. One visit to this impressive display home and you’ll quickly see why this stunning ensuite, with feature shower and freestanding bath, really does live up to its name.

The big question, of course, is what trends can we expect to see next?

After a quick look into their crystal ball, our designers see things like minimalism maintaining its presence, with lots more natural-feel textures, raw finishes, freestanding baths and a cleaner, more sharper-looking space.

Much, in fact, like The Grand Madeleine from Smart Homes for Living, which features on-trend matt black tapware, twin shower, open plan design, outdoor views … and the pre-requisite freestanding bath!

Now, if all this talk of bathroom design has got you thinking of what your dream ensuite might look like, here’s something well worth considering. Right now, you can get up close and personal with all the latest design trends, styles and finishes in our brand new, state-of-the-art Showroom at Ventura Home Group’s head office in Osborne Park.

This huge and interactive space has everything you need to see – not just for the bathroom but the rest of your home too.

The Showroom is open to the public during normal business hours. So simply pop in, have a wander through, and if you have any questions, we’ll be only too happy to help.

Just one thing. Promise not to come in a lycra leotard.
