Your bathroom should be your sanctuary. It’s the room in your where you can really unwind, relax, and let go of the day. It should be soothing but also functional. If your western suburban bathroom is not the peaceful retreat you’re looking for, now might be the perfect time to consider a bathroom renovation or remodel. For a bathroom that’s current as well as stylish, consider these four bathroom design trends for 2018.
1. Brass, Gold, and Black Fixtures
When you think brass or gold fixtures, a classic 80s design might be the picture that pops into your head. For 2018, they’re making a comeback in an updated way. You can find brass and gold sink and shower faucets, shower heads, and cabinet pulls in warmer tones that complement a variety of colors, including grays, blues, and greens. Black fixtures are also on trend for 2018. If metal finishes aren’t your style, consider this dark tone as your accent. Whichever you opt for, you can choose the traditional shiny finish or a matte finish for a more subtle look.
2. High-Tech Toilets
Technology continues to expand its way into our homes, and now you’ll find it in the bathroom. High-tech toilets are popular this year, and they offer features like automatic open or slow close lids, seat warmers, adjustable dryers, built-in deodorizers, wireless music players, and more. If you enjoy being on the cutting edge of technology, a toilet like this might be right up your alley for your Willowbrook or Western Springs bathroom remodel.
3. Accent Floors and Walls
The bathroom is a great place to show off your design aesthetic. Whether it’s a powder room or your master bath retreat, another popular trend in 2018 is accent walls and floors. A great way to incorporate an accent wall is with wallpaper in bold colors and/or patterns, such as large florals, abstract designs, or geometrics shapes. If wallpaper is not your style, you can opt for funkier tilework on a wall or the floor. There are a variety of patterns, colors, materials, and styles to choose from when it comes to tile, so have fun with it!
4. Featured Lighting
When considering your bathroom design, the first choices you usually make are tub, vanity, countertop, and toilet. But don’t forget lighting! This feature doesn’t have to be boring, and more trendy bathroom lighting is on point this year. You can include dimmers for a more relaxing atmosphere and unique fixtures that complement the rest of the room. Sconces and pendant lights are good choices for the vanity area. If you’re feeling fancy, you might even consider putting chandelier above your tub.
