Top bathroom trends for 2018
2018 is in full swing, but it’s not too late to get on board with trends that are considered “hot” for the rest of the year. So, if your bathroom has been looking a bit dull lately, it's probably in need of a little TLC.
From elegant roll top baths to statement tiles, we have selected the top bathroom trends of 2018 to future proof your bathroom for years to come...
Bold, statement tiles are a simple way to add a pop of colour to a bathroom, and thankfully, retro tiles have had a style renaissance in recent months. Comprising of a retro shape pattern and timeless black and white colours, these tiles provide walls and floors with a standout appearance, and a distinctive style that brings a shot of high-end luxury to any bathroom suite.
What's more, retro tiles are perfect for a range of areas throughout the home, so if you have one or two spare, we're sure they will not go to waste.
Bathrooms with minimal storage are out; practicality is back in. Storage doesn't have to mean ugly: there are many beautiful ways to add storage space to your bathroom, without getting in the way of your decor style.
Wall niches not only help with storage, but are also considered décor touches, especially when combined with expertly placed lighting. Whether you choose the timeless elegance of stainless steel, the understated elegance of white and crème or the unique modern look of anthracite, a niche can be teamed with a range of colors and finishes, so it is easy to choose a design that is perfect for your home.
His and hers bathroom
His and hers bathrooms, sometimes known as a Jack and Jill bathrooms, are a nod to the styling seen in boutique hotels, and also offer a practical solution to the bathroom-conflicted arguments. Having two identical basin areas creates a harmonious, pleasing symmetry and a luxe, hotel-like vibe. They effortlessly transform bathrooms into envy-inducing en suites.
Plus, double the space, double the storage and, more importantly, double the style points.
Roll top baths
A roll top bath, is a free standing bath, with elegant, curved edges. These free standing baths are often raised on feet, in order to keep the floor dry and prevent floorboards rotting or mildew forming.
There is also a tendency for roll top baths to be deep and longer than a traditional bath, allowing the potential for two people to soak comfortably. There is something slightly indulgent, but thoroughly deserved, about sinking into a roll top bath and letting your cares dissolve away with the bubbles.
Pebble river shower floor
In a age when we are busier than ever, a spa-like haven of relaxation is a necessity. This is why you will see plenty of spa-like, escapist bathrooms with muted lighting, deep soaking tubs, and lots of soft, stone textures.
Smooth river stones are the perfect mid-shower indulgence. The stones simultaneously massage your feet whilst you unwind, soaking away the stresses of each day.
Coloured bathroom decor
Bathroom colour schemes are essential for getting the look, feel and design you want in your bathroom. Break free of a staid design and add pops of colour to your bathroom with bold, bright colour schemes.
We suggest injecting bright yellow or a punchy green to energise and lift your bathrooms mood, or implement a cool blue or muted peach for a calming effect.
