What’s Trending in Bathroom Design 2018?

If you’ve been thinking of sprucing up your bathroom this year and are looking for inspiration, then this article will give you some ideas. We’re highlighting some of the biggest trends in bathroom design for the year so far. Read on if you wish to gain tips on renovating your bathroom.

One of the first tips we can give you is that you needn’t give your bathroom a complete overhaul in order to give it a new look. In many cases, it can be as simple as fitting some new taps, light fixtures, or maybe replacing the sink, bath, and toilet. You might be surprised at how much of a refresh these replacements bring to your bathroom design, without having to do a complete bathroom remodel.

Change over to Brassware

Bringing back some brass can add a touch of magnificence to your bathroom. You can keep a plan porcelain suite as the focus will be shifted to the metalware instead. Coming back in style this year have been taps that are crafted from brass, chrome and nickel. Browse some of the options at a specialist bath store to see what will work best

Contemporary Colours

The colour of the year so far has been rose gold. This combination colour sees pinkish hues come through with a tiny bit of shine, and is perfect for metallic details such as towel rails. Adding rose gold will make any new bathroom design feel contemporary but with a nod back to the past. You can complement the finish of rose gold with brass taps which will also add a nostalgic look to your bathroom.

Pleasing Patterns

In this year with a bang are some unique tile patterns such as pinstripe mosaic, but also splash patterns that work with an array of light green, pale pink, or soft blueberry colours. You can also add dazzle to your bathroom by applying easy-to-fit additional features such as a ‘wow’ mirror or ‘plouf’ bath, available from contemporary designers in a similar style to your splash tiles. Take a look at matching accessories in the showroom of a bathroom supplier.

Wood Works

Our final tip for the bathroom trends of 2018 has to be the emergence of wood. Warm wooden finishes are trending massively this season as homeowners are complimenting their bathroom suites with timber-cladded vanity units, shelving, basins, and matching mirrors. The classic hues of oak, ash, walnut, and pine are proving popular, with some people even adding to the look with botanical wallpaper making the bathroom feel more like a jungle. Perhaps that’s a bit too daring, but if you’re seeking to give your bathroom a facelift, then wood finishes could be the way to go.
