If your bathrooms haven’t been updated in years, 2018 is a great time to consider doing some remodeling. Keep in mind that making changes to your bathrooms is an excellent way to boost the value of your home. The following bathroom design trends of 2018 can give you some ideas to help you get started.
Brass, Gold and Black Fixtures
Sleek, shiny chrome fixtures are giving way to elegant brass or gold fixtures and sophisticated black ones in bathrooms this year. Brass or gold fixtures add warmth and a touch of luxury to bathrooms while also having practical appeal since marks from water and fingerprints aren’t as noticeable on them. They also pair well with cooler tones on walls and other surfaces, such as cool grays. Black fixtures can be used to add contrast for visual appeal or complement darker tones. They’re also an ideal choice for this year’s black and white bathroom trend.
Having a shower/tub combination in your bathroom provides convenience, but it doesn’t have as much impact in terms of design. One of this year’s trends is a move to install freestanding tubs rather than shower/tub combinations. Freestanding tubs can give bathrooms an upscale appearance or a whimsical vintage look, depending on the type of tub you get. Clawfoot tubs provide a vintage look, while oval, rectangular or rounded tubs that sit directly on the floor add modern luxury.
Ledges in bathrooms haven’t been a common trend in past years, but they’re on the rise in 2018. These open ledges are areas where you can prop up artwork and display candles or other accent pieces to provide the room with a more artsy or creative look. This trend gives you more opportunities to experiment with interior design in terms of accent pieces. You can also use these ledges for soap dispensers and other practical items. Keep in mind that space is limited on these ledges, so make sure you have plenty of storage for your bathroom items with a vanity or medicine cabinet.
Neutral and Organic Combinations
When it comes to wall, floor and ceiling colors, neutral and organic combinations are expected to become more in demand. This means a mixture of white, grays and other neutral colors with touches of green, rich brown and blue tones. Bathroom materials will also be bringing in an organic, natural look with natural stone, wood and brick. If you want to limit the number of organic materials and colors in your bathroom, keep another of 2018‘s trends in mind. This year, eye-catching accent walls in bathrooms will also be on the rise. You can fill your bathroom with neutral colors and save the organic material and tones for a bolder accent wall.
