2018 Bathroom Inspo

Are you building or renovating a bathroom? It’s always said that from inspiration comes creation, and that’s why we’ve compiled the very best bathroom trends, ideas and inspiration for 2018.

The current top bathroom trends include:

Hotel Inspired:

  • You don’t need a 5 star budget, use affordable yet statement pieces
  • Make it an escape
  • Choose high quality tapware you can enjoy for years to come
  • Use contrasting textures
  • Make the tub the centre point of the room
  • Choose tiles that represent elegance
  • Use classic finishes such as glass, timber, black, chrome, brass

Day spa

  • A free standing bath is essential to creating a Day Spa feel
  • Make the tub your focus point
  • Choose understated tapware
  • Use mosaic tiles or relaxed looking tiles
  • Include timber elements
  • Create contrasting textures
  • Include toiletries and accessories found in a day spa to decorate

Black and White

  • Create statements with clean lines and bold contrasts of black and white
  • Soften the contrast by choosing an oval bath
  • Carry the style right through the bathroom with toiletries and accessories
  • Use chrome to off set the contrast of the black and white
  • Timber elements, a view to nature and organic shapes can take the edge off the harsh contrasting

“You can take your bathroom from safe to wow by adding tapware and shower heads that inject luxury and make a statement” – Shannon Via, The Block Winner

5 Global Design Tips for 2018:

  1. Spa-style tubs are here to stay – Pinterest reported that they had an amazing 269% increase in saved pins relating to spa bathrooms.
  2. The end of the industrial – Industrial lightings, fixtures and interior are making a switch to modern bathrooms with softer styles.
  3. Subdued colour – Simple soft colour that throws neutrals and smooth textures are the key colour palette for bathrooms.
  4. Bathrooms that double as living spaces – because bathroom inspo is being taken from spa’s and boutique hotels, including the spa-style theme, bathroom layouts are turning into “living spaces” in the home. Luxury seating and areas to relax are being incorporated into design.
