While the kitchen has become the main hub for household in the modern age, there is one room in the house that offers the perfect blend of relaxation and escape. The bathroom is not a room that should be neglected when it comes to re-styling your home. Its aesthetic appeal instantly sets your mood upon entering and dictates how relaxed you can become.
With 2018 around the corner, we’ve put together a selection of the hottest trends for the next 12 month that you can put on your wish list.
Monochrome colour palette
Whether its interior design or fashion, colour schemes constantly change through every season. One thing that everyone agrees on are the staples of black, white and greyscale. These tones always remain in style and instantly add a touch of class to your bathroom.
While granite seems to be going out of style, handcrafted stone sinks are really coming to the fore. We know that porcelain will always have that truly classic appeal, but stone sinks will start trending in 2018, so now’s the time to start shopping to get ahead of the curve.
Colourfully designed tiles
The subway tile has dominated many a bathroom for quite some time and the big news for next year is that they are on the way out. Instead, patterned, coloured, or even textured tiles are taking their place. It’s the ideal way to express individuality and inject some vibrant character into the bathroom.
Retro bath tubs
Showers have taken over in the bathroom over the past decade, so much so that some bathrooms no long even have a bath! However, we all know that nothing beats a long, relaxing soak in a bath. Retro baths add instant character to the bathroom, and claw-foot style baths in particular are a class above. Classy brass fittings will also make a huge difference to a classic style bath tub.
Speaking of brass and darker yellow hues, gold fittings will be back with a bang in 2018. Keep the look minimal and classic on your taps to really add a sense of opulence to your bathroom. What’s also great about gold is how it also fits in seamlessly alongside monochrome schemes.
Marble finished tiles
While granite is making way, the marble look is about to come in. Where buying pure marble was too expensive for many, tiles with marble finishes now look like the real deal. This will turn your bathroom into a truly luxurious space you’ll never want to leave once you walk in.
Almost everything is turning digital and showers are no different. Digital showers will be big in 2018 and are seen as the very best type you can purchase. The control panel can fit into the surrounding décor and the noise level is significantly reduced. A shower in silence. What could be better?
All of these suggestions are set to become big trends over the coming 12 months, so if you want to be a trendsetter, now’s the time to start shopping. Once you get the ambience of your bathroom just how you like it, you’ll have the perfect getaway at the end of a busy day.
