Everyone in your home uses the bathroom every day, and it’s often one of the first rooms to start showing signs of wear and tear. However, you don’t have to completely replace your bathroom in order to get it looking as good as new – simply re-tiling and re-painting will often do the job.
Here are six of the top bathroom trends of 2018 to give you some inspiration for the smallest room in your home.
The herringbone tile is set to be hugely popular this year, and looks great on walls or floors. It’s a bold and striking design, and combines traditional tiling techniques with a modern feel. This works particularly well in period homes, but also looks great in new builds.
Blue is traditionally a popular colour for bathrooms, but it’s fallen out of favour for whites and neutrals in recent years. It’s set to make a comeback in 2018, but opt for beautiful turquoises and azures rather than bland, insipid blues. Ideal Home points out that indigo is set to be popular in bathrooms this year, so the bolder the better.
Use statement tiles
Not for everyone, statement tiles featuring bold designs or striking colours can work very well in smaller bathrooms in particular. In fact, some designers feel that the smaller the space, the more daring you can be with colours and patterns so if you’ve got a tiny bathroom, make the most of it.
Golds and other metallics look great in bathrooms and add a touch of luxury to any space. If you’re not sure about this trend, take a look at some of the more subtle ways of introducing gold into your bathroom, such as pretty tiles with gold trim or metallic flecks.
Natural materials have been huge news in interior design for the past few years, and this trend is set to continue with travertine marble and other luxurious natural stones still in demand. Gold lustred tiles are the perfect complement for shiny new 12mm shower glass panels, such as those available from retailers such as https://marvinandpinch.co.uk/products/12mm-clear-toughened-shower-screen-wetroom-panel-glass?variant=50220687892.
If you prefer plain wall tiles – and many homeowners do – you can still update your bathroom and add a touch of fun by opting for bold and colourful floor tiles.
