Do you think that bathrooms can be as stylish and elegant as the rest of your home? It can happen that people disregard their bathrooms and consider them to be dull and boring, but it doesn’t have to be the case. You spend a significant amount of time in your bathroom, and it’s only natural that you want it to be an elegant and functional space. Luckily, some of the hottest bathroom trends for 2018 will help you achieve that.
The industrial look
Our first thought when we think of those visible pipes in the bathroom is to cover them up and hide them. Well, it appears that in 2018 you won’t have to cover them up; on the contrary, industrial style is taking over bathrooms just as it did kitchens and living rooms. You can get the air of those New York lofts in your bathroom by combining simple and imperfect pieces and using them to get a perfect dramatic industrial design. Keep your walls bare concrete or opt for brick, get some accent industrial ceiling lights and get a metal tub and sink.
Present everywhere from bespoke furniture pieces to be integrated into storage, wood gives that warm and natural finish and makes a room more inviting. Hardwood floors are also becoming more popular by the day and it allows you to bring together opposing styles because it’s seen as classic. Seeing as how wood floors have a great number of grains, finishes, and types you will be able to find something that meets your taste with ease. The only downside of wooden floors is that you have to wipe off the accumulation of water when you leave the shower, as it will deteriorate when exposed to moisture for a long time.
People who love the simplicity and convenience of showers will be thrilled to find out that in the following year multi-functional showers are going to be a great hit. Showers with a steam system and integrated benches, open showers with ambient or anti-fog mirrors… All of these traits will be present in modern bathroom designs. Shelves or crevices for you to keep shampoos and soaps at hand are also convenient and if you install them on the wall, you will be able to save space. For those who love minimalism and versatility, good old Italian showers with glass walls are the best choice as these are easy to adapt to different décor styles.
If your bathroom doesn’t have enough natural light, you will love the hottest tile trend: iridescent tiles. These glass tiles are the best choice for bathrooms in need of more light as they reflect any light they have and make space appear brighter. You can cover your entire wall with these tiles or you can use them to make a nice mosaic instead. Tiles are convenient because they are easy to maintain and they are highly durable too.
While people tend to use showers more, baths have made a huge comeback in the previous seasons. They are more elegant and beautiful, and they offer more space for you to relax. The most popular one is the oval freestanding bath even though rectangular ones are also interesting with their sophisticated appearance. You can have it installed in the very centre of the bathroom and everyone will be amazed by it. If you don’t have enough space, you can get a nice vintage claw-foot tub, place it in the corner, and surround it with interesting shower curtains and bathroom rugs.
For a long time, bathroom designs have been focused more on functionality than on style or beauty but trends are changing rapidly and bathrooms are quickly becoming oases of style, beauty, and elegance. On the other hand, try to remember that just because certain trends are becoming more popular than others, it doesn’t mean that you have to remodel your bathroom every year.
