Looking for style inspiration for your bathroom? Nature-lovers will delight over our Natural Oasis design which brings the outdoors inside to give the feeling of bathing in a rainforest, rather than a suburban bathroom. The wet room style is reminiscent of outdoor bathrooms you might find on holiday in Bali or Byron Bay – and who doesn’t want to feel like they’re on holiday every day?
Why we love a Natural Oasis bathroom
Simply put, this bathroom is good for the soul. The calming elements of nature combine seamlessly with the luxuries of the Caroma bathroomware range. The wet room layout is becoming more popular in bathroom design, and we love that it helps make the room feel airy and spacious.
This trend combines the warmth of wood with the clean lines of the Caroma Contura bathroomware range.
How to create your own Natural Oasis
The key elements you’ll need to recreate this gorgeous natural oasis in your home are:
For a seamless, open-plan design, consider a wet room layout which forgoes dedicated space for the bath and shower and groups them together behind one screen. “I personally love the uncluttered open-plan design,” says expert Linda Visser from Caroma on Collins. “However, remember your focal point: our bathroom has a strong visual impact due to the bath taking center stage with that garden.”
A wet room that combine the shower and bath space is a great space-saver in a small bathroom too.
If you’re a first-time renovator, we recommend keeping the layout simple and getting clever with the product selection. “The simplicity and functionality of the space and the organic, yet minimal, lines of the bathroom products are a clever combination in this design,” says expert Nicole Staples of our Flagship store in Adelaide.
A glass feature window is a great way to fill your bathroom with light and give a glimpse of the greenery that brings this design to life. If privacy is an issue, consider a skylight instead.
Keep your tile choices subtle – the raw timbers and greenery are the feature items in this design. A wooden vanity and a beautiful wooden stool (to sit on or rest your book by the bath) will accentuate the natural oasis look.
Our bathroom design experts recommend the Caroma Contura range to complement a Natural Oasis bathroom. The Contura range delivers a pure, honest aesthetic to match many bathroom styles. Ideal for those seeking a signature look with design ingenuity and lifespan, Contura sets a new benchmark for simple luxury in the bathroom.
We chose to use it in this Natural Oasis design for its curved form that complements the beauty of nature.
In a Natural Oasis, make sure your accessories reflect the natural characteristics of the rest of the design. Try adding some cane baskets, they’re perfect for collecting laundry or storing clean, rolled towels. And indoor plants that thrive in humid conditions are a must for an authentic Natural Oasis design.
