Emerging Bathroom Trends for 2018
We have already seen several new bathroom design trends gaining traction among top designers this year. If you are planning to redo your bathroom within the next few months, consider incorporating a few of these stylish touches.
Make Your Bathroom a Personal Retreat
While a bathroom should always remain one of your most practical rooms in your home, most people now want one which adds a bit of luxury to their lives. This trend translates into people who are willing to pay a little more money to wind up with a bathroom where they feel comfortable and can completely relax. For many homeowners that means a fresh coat of muted, neutral-tone paint and higher-end finishes such as brass or gold-tone faucets and other hardware. It is extremely popular these days to incorporate organic elements in bathrooms with plenty of plants and natural materials.
It is Acceptable to Go Simple
When it comes to bathroom trends in 2018, the old motto that, "Bigger isn't better," is worth remembering. Just a few years ago, high-end showers and tubs took up much of the floor space and were full of multiple shower heads, but that has all changed. These days, freestanding tubs remain popular; however, the majority of homeowners favor, smaller but still ample, metal frames shower enclosures with simpler shower heads which are easier to maintain and require less water to operate. Homeowners appreciate a less cluttered appearance in the bathroom and achieve this by shrinking the size of the toilet and vanity, and, at the same time, creating more storage by using shelving instead of cabinets and utilizing every inch of the room's height to its full advantage.
Luxury is Still Allowed
While the popularity of over-the-top bathrooms is waning, adding some luxurious touches is still fashionable. These stylistic elements often show up as textured and intricate tiles or contemporary lighting options. Three-dimensional tiles help you stay true to a muted palette yet bring an additional amount of interest to the room. You can find textured tiles in a variety of designs from barely noticeable to downright bold. Choose the ones which work best for your room. Adding a bit of style with off-beat lighting options such as tabletop lamps and decorative sconces is a great way give your bathroom a touch of class. Whichever lighting fixtures you choose, make sure you have enough light to do your daily routine safely. Lighting experts suggest at least 150 watts of illumination evenly spread around your mirror.
