Bathroom Trends 2018

Friday, February 16, 2018

Bathroom trends which will dominate in 2018

Sanitary ware

Minimal rims continue to influence sanitary ware trends for 2018, with basins which optimise space becoming a popular choice for consumers. This creates sleek lines as well as adhering to the luxury hotel bathroom and spa-like trend which is resonating throughout design in 2018. 

Since the bathroom is more than just a functional space, continuing its evolution as a retreat. “Sales are being built by a desire to create a more relaxing and spa-like bathroom, rather than merely a functional space, as well as an increase in demand for products that make a bathroom more accessible.”

Baths

With many in the bathroom industry predicting black will be the stand out colour for bathrooms next year, it is of no surprise this can be seen across baths as well. With demand for natural stone colours still high, continuing from last year’s trend, it is predicted these will be contrasted subtly with black accents throughout 2018. 

Solid surface products and natural materials such as stone will also continue to be popular as mindfulness and going back to basics remains high on the agenda.” This also appropriates the freestanding bath trend which remains a popular choice for consumers as they stick to luxury hotel style.

Showering

The need to create products which not only keep up with technological advances but also focus on the importance of water saving technology has become apparent within shower products. It’s a key trend which featured heavily last year and remains vital for 2018 trends. 

Technology is set to play a greater role in water-saving, with showers that can control water flow and temperature through an app. Consumers in 2018 will want their bathrooms to feature the newest gadgets on the market and as a result, next year should see bathroom-related apps really rise to prominence.”

Wall coverings

As many choose to refurbish their homes now instead of moving, it has been suggested that homeowners have gained confidence in making braver decisions when it comes to bathroom design; and lending itself to bold, large scale patterns are a plethora of wall coverings from porcelain or quartz slabs through to laminate panels, in either gloss or matt textures.
