According to the latest Housing Industry Association (HIA) Kitchens and Bathrooms Report, an estimated 219,000 bathroom renovations took place across Australia in the past 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, an Australian manufacturer of shower screens, splashbacks and glass panels, has launched its Grange Black Shower screen 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. Stegbar Marketing Director Christine Evans says, “not just an on trend hue, black is also timeless and ever sophisticated, 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 Shower screen and Overlap Shower screen, 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.

Sleek in design and look, the Inline Showerscreen is a pivot door system developed to withstand everyday use. While the Grange Overlap Shower screen is a semi frameless structure with a functional difference, an overlapping pivot door to minimise water leakage.
