2018 Top 5 Bathroom Trends

If you’re looking to remodel your bathroom, or are in the middle of making selections, 2018 is bringing in some hot trends for bathroom designs. Since many spend the first and last minutes of the day in the bathroom, it’s important that it feels serene and spacious. An old, outdated, oppressive space, on the other hand, is a recipe for disaster. So, whether you’re doing a full-scale remodel or just making a few tweaks, here are some of the top trends in bathroom designs for 2018 that you’ll definitely want to consider.

Open & Spacious

The bathroom isn’t only for hygiene purposes anymore. It’s a sanctuary space, a place for beauty and relaxation. What does this mean as far as design? Expand the space by downsizing adjacent rooms, adding a small addition, or if all else fails, playing up appearances through design tactics. You can give the illusion of a larger, more open space by using large tile flooring, mirrors, and bright paint colors.

Brass Tone Fixtures

This new tone twist is the perfect complement to the cooler gray paint colors that have become popular in recent years. The warm gold tone adds just the right amount of depth, dimension, and luxury feel to any space. Homeowners love the change to warmer accents with the brass/gold toned bathroom fixtures versus the traditional shiny polished chrome which conveys a more cool, modern, and sleek feel. Offered in new finish options like in satin, matte, and spun gold this subtle change is just what’s needed to add that classic traditional element to any space.  With the added bonus of keeping fingerprints and water spots hidden. This warmer tone has become the accent piece of a room, with complementing hardware, light fixtures, and mirrors as well.

Stone Sinks

While traditional porcelain will always be a classic, a stone sink is where the trend is headed. The most popular stones for stone sinks being granite, marble, and onyx which feature distinct patterns and an amazingly broad color palette.

Smart Storage

Practical storage will never go out of style. Whenever possible, take advantage of vertical space and take your cabinetry up the wall. If built-in cabinetry isn’t an option, incorporate an interesting or antique piece of furniture. Open shelving is also still a popular trend that can also be quite practical in the bathroom.

Unique Floor Tiles

We’re seeing a resurgence of the once beloved tiles of decades past, plus a few new designs. No longer are we content with just a subway tile or a large format tile on the wall. We have lots of tile shapes to choose from once again.  So, look for new and improved hexagon, arabesque, diamond, Moroccan fish scales, or chevron patterns in new colors & textures. These eye-catching shapes will not just grace the floor either; they will also be used as bathroom backsplashes, on shower walls, and possibly ceiling accents to create the bold accents we so desire. So, if you’re looking for a safe way of livening up your bathroom, this is one of the best trends to try out in 2018.

If you’re thinking about a bathroom remodel, remember that your bathroom is your sanctuary. You should bathe like royalty. Take some of these bathroom design trends for 2018 and use them to modernize your space.
