You need to know what the bathroom trends for 2018 are if you’re planning an update this year. Sometimes you can make a few switches like changing the shower curtain, rug or towels to give your bathroom a fresh, new look, but if you’re going for a remodel, you’ll want to try to choose styles you’ll still be happy with down the road.
One Material, One Color
Frequently, “trendy” is synonymous with “impractical,” but our first trend is just the opposite. You can now use one color tile from floor to ceiling! No more stopping halfway up the wall to switch to a different color or to drywall — now one big box of tiles will do the job.
In fact, part of the trend is sticking to shades of the same color throughout your bathroom. White is still popular, so if you choose this, you don’t need to worry about different shades.
You can use accents like plants, pictures and towels to break up the antiseptic effect of all that white. And these accents are easy and affordable to change when you get tired of the color.
Matte Black Fixtures
House & Home swears that black faucets and fixtures are it for 2018, and Google confirms it, with more than 6.6 million search results for this trend. Matte black, specifically, is preferred, which is good news for homeowners easily vexed by water spots and splashes in the bathroom.
If you go with a black-and-white theme, black fixtures can really unify the look.
Practicality takes a hit with the popularity of vessel sinks — but they’re just so darn charming! This year, the Spruce says, the preferred vessel will be stone — no more big glass bowls.
You can get them with unusually shaped, rough exteriors, or choose an expertly hewn, smooth variety. Either brings a natural, earthy feel to the room.
Various home and decorating publications claim that “open space” is a bathroom trend for 2018, despite the fact most homeowners do not have extraordinarily roomy bathrooms. The best we can do is try to make our space uncluttered, and the way to achieve this is by creating adequate storage space.
When planning a renovation in a bathroom where space is tight, don’t waste an inch. This is the perfect opportunity to build in cabinets so you don’t have to fill your bathroom with Ikea furniture that constantly needs replacing.
