Bathroom Trends That Will be Huge in 2018

Bathroom is usually the smallest room in the house. Bathroom also needs to be functional, above everything else. Respectively, bathroom design should be more about how space works, and less about how it looks. However, small does not have to be cluttered. Functional does not necessarily mean boring. In recent decades, the constant evolution of design and furnishing lead to modern bathrooms, practical yet aesthetically pleasing, ingenious yet calming, personal Zen oasis.

Human creativity is an endless river. Every year it brings something new and stunning in the field of interior design. As we are sailing in into 2018, designers and design lovers around the Globe are buzzing about the upcoming innovations and trends. The hype is real, and we are happy to be a part of it. What will be stylish, fashionable, yet easy to maintain? Let us check out, and hopefully inspire your next bathroom renovation project.


Nature Will Speak


2017 was marked by the return of organic and natural on the interior design scene, and these two will follow us through 2018 looking better than ever. Materials like brick, stone, and bamboo will find more uses in the bathroom. However, wood (especially bleached one) is the winner of the popularity contest.


It is well known by now that introduction of wood gives a touch of elegance to any room, while creating cosy, warm, welcoming atmosphere - an ideal one for home-spas. And the best thing about it is the fact that possibilities are endless. In 2018 wood will be present not only as a decorative element but also as a shower floor coverage or even as a material for a bathtub.

Combined with colours and seamless lines, natural materials will bring a more classic style to modern bathrooms by harmonising the opposites. This dynamic atmosphere evokes well-balanced, elegant sensation. Just imagine the effortless beauty of white basin combined with a hardwood floor, for instance.

The old connection between clay and water was recently rediscovered by designers. One wonderful example of this are water-dispensing products, gorgeous hybrids of a shelf and a tap made of clay. Furthermore, we can expect to see more attempts to bring outdoor in through plants, flowers, and even grass.



Dark and Light Will Dance

Monochromatic palette is always classy. It simultaneously brings simplicity and playfulness to the table. Trust us, you will never regret choosing the combination of dark and neutral scheme for your bathroom.

The “it’’ colours of the season will be grey and beige. This is not such a big surprise since they work wonderfully in a rich variety of shades and hues.

Residing somewhere between light and dark, grey can be moody, intense, serene… actually, it can be anything you want. Bright, high shine surfaces and tiles are out, passing the torch to matte, nude and neutral ones. If used properly, they are a perfect match for darker greys since they bring divergence to an overall image. Pastel tonalities of blue and green will stay on the list of trendy tones for some more time too.


When it comes to plasticity and utilisation possibilities, we will be bold enough to say that beige is a warm version of grey. The rumour has it that 2018 will slowly but certainly bring warmer colour combos on the scene. So together with the beige base, we can expect red, yellow and brown to sprout out in bathrooms all over the world. 


Marble and Brass Will Merge


ince 2018 is all about bringing outdoors in, natural stones will be present in bathroom design for sure. Marble is the most beloved one by homeowners since it is timeless, it adds value to a home, and it is so damn beautiful. While natural marble can be costly, it is now possible to create the same effect with large format marble tiles. You don't even have to tile the entire bathroom - an area behind shower will be more than enough to add a dash of style and luxury. Possible applications of marble are numerous, so besides cladding, you could use it for flooring, as an item for add-ons and bathroom fittings (like for example marble washbasin), etc.


Speaking of style and luxury, brass has a serious tendency to become in vogue metal for bathroom decor in 2018. So, brace yourself, brass is coming back! If you prefer to keep it classy though, opt for a chrome or satin as a posh yet safe solution. However, at least think about giving the brass a chance. Mix it with the nobility of the marble, and you will most certainly end up with one mesmerising composition. Marble, brass and everything nice.

Technology Will Help

In conclusion, we would like to emphasize that the progress of technology did not neglect bathrooms. Innovations like mirrors with LED lighting, valve with temperature or a motion detector, towel dryers, touch screens with mirrors, etc. are being included in bathroom remodelling projects more often. Additionally, times when running water interfered with the shower temperature are finally gone. The latest new wave showers are digitally controlled, simple to install, well-designed and easy to clean - a fusion of style and functionality at its finest.


Interior design world is prospering every day, and it is thrilling to think what the future will bring. What a time to be alive!

Currently, there is an abundance of dark tints that you can choose from. Navy blue is a safe choice but it will still make a statement, hunter green is a winning combo with copper bath, shades of gray will bring that moody look without going all the way dark, all black everything stands for brave elegance, so far and so forth. When it comes to dark tiles, you should consider choosing shiny over flat ones, since this will bounce more light around your bathroom.


True Colors

Neutral is timeless, dark is moody, but what about vivid? Although it might seem risky, adding some colors should never be off limits. In fact, colorful tiles are a perfect tool for driving attention to the focal point of your bathroom. Pick one wall to be a showpiece and spice it up with vivid gloss blue or green tiles for a spa-like effect.


Millennial pink trend is here to stay, so you can use rose tiles to bring in some retro vibes while invoking playfulness and nostalgia. Sunshine-inspired yellow subway tiles on vanity, shower or tub will add an arty dose of warmth. Just picture it. What’s there not to like?


Yes drama! Playing with patterns will allow you to go as creative as one can be. Colorful, charming, encaustic tiles are a great way to show off your style and personality. Made by using two or more different colors of clay (or cement) in the body of the tile, they will never wear off. Encaustics have been present since medieval times, and they have managed to gain some ‘everlasting beauty’ reputation. Talking about oldie but goldie, right?


You can have them in tangled curls or contemporary geometric patterns, but they will always have that genuine “been here forever” rustic appeal. Black and white, colorful, vintage, Moroccan, old-school - you name the style, encaustics have it. Summon your inner artist, release your creativity and choose a perfect pattern for your bathroom wisely.
