2018 Trends for the bathroom
Did you know that bathrooms were the most renovated space in 2017? This has become a popular space for upgrading thanks to the at-home spa trend, which looks at the bathroom as not just a utilitarian necessity, but as an extension of the rest of the home that can be luxurious and revitalizing.
Need some inspiration for refreshing your bathroom? Check out these top trends favoured by designers and homeowners alike.
Bold lighting. Use lighting strategically to set the ambiance for the space. Try warm brass globe sconces for an industrial aesthetic that feels very now; or use bold vanity lighting for a touch of Hollywood glamour.
Dramatic accents. Create a defining style statement with a standout element, like a skylight. Velux’s solar-powered venting skylight brings in natural daylight while allowing you to let steam out after a hot bath or shower. Enjoy privacy, an unobstructed view and a sophisticated design touch.
Modern metals. Warmer hues like brass and gold are making a comeback, and bring in some depth and complement the neutral greys that are popular on walls. Matte black is another option for the fashion-forward; it has a contemporary heritage vibe that looks great against whites and other neutrals.
Unique tiles. Go beyond the subway tile and opt for quirky shapes and mixed tiles that add some flair and interest to any bathroom. Penny rounds, honeycomb, hexagon and diamond are exciting options to try.
High-tech accessories. Enjoy conveniences you never knew you needed like self-cleaning toilets that make housework a breeze; underfloor heating systems you’ll really appreciate come winter; wireless entertainment systems for your favourite shows and music; and under-counter appliances like a refrigerator to store beverages and organic lotions.
