2018: The Bathroom Trends of the Year

2018 Bathroom Trends

2018 has been quite the year for bathroom trends, from a return to British heritage to homes embracing Modern Nordic style. Bathrooms are often overlooked in the home but when you think about how much time you spend in your bathroom over the course of the day, week or even year – a change in decor could be just what it needs. In this blog, we’re going to explore some of the biggest trends to enter our homes in 2018 and which ones we expect to stay the course as we head into the New Year.

Welcome to the Jungle

Our Instagram feed was taken over by stunning Lusso Stone bathroom transformations this year, with many featuring beautiful botanical decor. Adding moisture-loving plants such as ferns and palms has always been a top tip for bathrooms, but in 2018, this took on a new level as people turned their bathrooms into their own rainforest retreats. Not only did the plants work hard to cleanse the air, but the lush green colours also worked perfectly against our white stone baths, metallic fixtures and matte black fittings. We see this trend heading straight into 2018, with more people adding greenery to their bathrooms to anchor the overall look.

Modern Nordic Style

In 2017 we had hygge, the Danish decor phenomenon that promoted cosiness in the home. In 2018, this switched to modern Nordic style, a way to create a calm retreat away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Bathrooms all over the country embraced this trend, turning to clean lines, soft colours and organic materials to create their own Scandinavian haven. This is another trend that we see heading into 2019, however, we predict that it will evolve to include statement colour accents as people bring new season colours into their living space.

Hotel Luxe

Who hasn’t spent a night in a hotel and wished their bathroom was half as decadent as the one in their room? In 2018, we saw people take the key design elements of boutique hotels and transform their own bathrooms with 5* elegance. Designer lighting fixtures, dark jewel tones, quirky decor and freestanding baths were the order of the day for those following the hotel luxe trend, with adding luxuries such as his and her basics and marble tiles. In our previous blog, we explored how matte black fixtures are set to be THE trend for 2019 and we can see them working perfectly with the hotel luxe style. Imagine a large freestanding stone bath with beautiful matte black fixtures complemented with soft cosy towels, decadent decor and a gorgeous stone basin…..can we get a late checkout?

Open Spaces

Open plan bathrooms aren’t a new thing, but in 2018 we saw an increase in the number of people opting for large open showers and wet rooms. Ideal for larger spaces, these walk-in shower styles became the focal point of the bathroom – complemented by statement showerheads, taps and fixtures. This trend also worked well in compact spaces, with many choosing an open wet room to give the illusion of space in their bathroom. We currently offer a wide range of walk-in shower styles in a variety of sizes and styles, perfect for those looking to bring this interior style to their home.

The British are coming…

The British arrived in 2018 as the British Heritage trend had a revival in bathrooms across the globe. In a nutshell, British Heritage combines industrial elements with traditional period fixtures and fittings. Think opulent chandeliers contrasted with exposed pipework and modern elements such as heated towel rails. This trend is one that really stoked the fires of the matte black bathroom trend as people gravitated towards chic matte black shower frames, taps and shower heads. This is definitely a trend to watch as we head into 2019 and we can see a lot more people choosing to contrast modern and traditional design in their homes.
