Is your bathroom ready for an update? If its been awhile since you made any changes, now is the perfect time to give your old bathroom some 2018 style. A bathroom remodel not only improves the functionality and aesthetics for you, but also adds value to your home if you decide to sell. Here are all the latest trends – from timeless elements to trending looks – to help you make your bathroom beautiful and functional.
Navy blue is the color choice for on trend 2018 bathrooms. Whether you incorporate a little or a lot, navy blue is the perfect complement to white hues, neutral tones, and metallic accents. A navy-blue accent wall or all over navy blue paint could be the perfect choice for your bathroom’s new look.
Natural Stone Tiles
Oversized natural stone tiles are easy to clean, which use less grout, and thus make cleaning easier. Gone are the formerly trending subway tiles, and in their place are big, bold natural stone tiles in showers and adorning backsplashes in every hue – bright and light or bold and dark.
Warm Metal Fixtures
Not just in the bathroom, but all over the house, warm metals are on trend – brass, bronze, copper, and satin nickel lend themselves this fashionable look. For the hottest style, mix your warm metal choice in fixtures with deep tones like black, charcoal, navy, or bright white to make them pop! Its easy to incorporate this latest style into your bathroom without a full-blown renovation by simply replacing your faucets and fixtures.
The Rainfall Shower
While you’re choosing fixtures for your bathroom makeover, add a rainfall shower head for natural rejuvenation and relaxation in your bathroom. Rainfall shower heads add a style and are an upgrade that won’t cause your remodel to go over budget.
The Right Lighting
On trend for 2018 in both bathrooms and kitchens is industrial lighting. Soft, spa lighting is taking a backseat as trendy industrial lighting brings a rustic style that pairs well with 2018 on trend navy blue and your favorite warm metal fixtures. Industrial lighting can be added overhead or as vanity lights for a stylish bathroom upgrade.
Technology? In the Bathroom
Technology continues to make home life easier and the bathroom is no exception. Among the must have bathroom technology is the digital shower control, a sleek version that looks like part of the décor, which allows you to perfectly control the water temperature for your shower. Some models even allow you turn on the shower from your phone, so when you arrive at the bathroom, the shower is ready and waiting!
