Hottest Bathroom Trends 2018
There are hot new trends for bathrooms in 2018. The bathroom is where you spend your first and last minutes of the day – without a doubt, it is like your own personal sanctuary–a very important place in our home.
So, if you’re looking to remodel your bathroom, whether a full-scale remodel or just making a few tweaks, here are some of the top trends in bathroom designs for 2018.
- Open and Airy
Today, the bathroom isn’t just for hygiene purposes. It’s also enjoyed as a sanctuary-a place for beauty and relaxation. What does this mean as far as design? Maybe expanding the space by downsizing adjacent rooms, adding a small addition, or if all else fails, playing up appearances through design tricks. You can give the illusion of a larger, more open space by using large tile flooring, mirrors, and bright paint colors.
A material revamp is taking place in 2018. Here are some of the things to watch for. Bold brass hardware is making a comeback from the ’80s. Brass can add a comforting, warm tone to your bathroom and really complement the right cabinetry, paint colors, and other design elements.
This is preferred over Granite. With its stone-like, clean appearance, quartz works for your floors, walls, counters, and vanities. Plus, it’s environmentally friendly.
- Hand-carved Stone
Hand-carved stone sinks will be popular in 2018, but traditional porcelain will continue to be a classic for sinks.
- Mixed Materials
The all-white bathroom is out. Colors, and textures are in. Mix it up by choosing a few unique materials instead of just picking one.
From bold navy to bright cerulean, every shade of blue you can imagine will be popping up in countertops, tiles, walls, cabinets, and more. While blue is the top color trend, it’s not the only color making its mark. It used to be that there wasn’t a lot of colors in the bathroom, so more color is definitely a newer trend.
- NYC-loft industrial look
This look is now trending and taking over home bathrooms as well. It’s a trend that will stand the test of time, yet always feel unique. Think exposed pipes, raw brick walls, metal tubs and sinks, and the use of concrete.
Boring, plain-colored tile is out. Instead, texture, color, pattern, and overall unique designs are taking over the tile world. Bathrooms don’t have to be traditional. Change it up by adding in some experimental tiling with a little personality in 2018.
When you say Smart Home Technology, be sure you include the bathroom. Technology will be showing off its talents in the bathroom in a big way.
