Modern bathrooms are beautiful sanctuaries in the home. Places of tranquility, cleansing, and style. And yet, many of tody’s trends find their roots in historical eras that set the scene for bathroom innovation and design. Here’s a round-up of our favourite bathroom trends for 2018.
Let’s go Retro
Retro styling is back in a big way – with details that seem from a bygone era, often originating in the Fifties. This was a time of brightly coloured sanitaryware with pops of neon and let’s not forget bold Pop Art. If you’re feeling brave, embrace bold, bright shades of colour and playful patterns in the bathroom and keep things trendy with modern sanitaryware and smart fixtures.
On the opposite scale of retro styling, Victorian style remains a classic with the traditional free-standing tub and neutral finishes in the bathroom. Create a regal, luxury space with timeless sanitaryware in true Victorian style. Grand architecture and dark walls will certainly work to create the mood in a Victorian-inspired scheme.
The Classical Look
The focus here is on refined elegance, luxury features and balanced proportions. Classical fittings with beautiful shapes and soft, elegant colours that will harmonise. For a sense of grandeur, introduce at least one show-stopping feature – a dramatic floor mosaic or a huge mirror are especially pleasing in a Renaissance-inspired setting.
Gorgeous minimalist spaces boast simple, streamlined designs without the embelishments of many of the above schemes. Think simple monochromatic colour schemes, streamlined pieces and timeless sanitaryware. Declutter your space and keep things clean and simple to achieve this trendy design scheme at home.
Over The Top
Here, anything goes. Think bold colourful wallpaper designs in dramatic patterns for effect. Smaller bathrooms are given an overhaul of style with a punch of bright colours and interesting features including patterned flooring, bold lighting and contrasting shapes for a glorious finish in the bathroom.
