The bathroom is often an overlooked room in the house when it comes to updates and renovations. After all, few people ever see your bathroom, and the time you spend there is only a fraction of the time you spend in your kitchen, living room or bedroom — but perhaps you’d spend more time in the bathroom if you follow 2018 bathroom trends. Here are a few bathroom trends you can expect to see throughout this year:
- Industrial Finishes: Many publications are predicting exposed pipes, metal tubs, waxed concrete floors and other loft-style features will be 2018 bathroom trends. Add a hint of rustic wood to finish out the look and warm up the environment just a little.
- Advanced Technology: Motion detection, temperature regulation, LED lighting, enhanced connectivity — expect it all in the bathroom in 2018. Homes are becoming smarter with each passing year, and technology is no longer just for the entertainment room.
- Convenience Showers: Look for bathroom trends in 2018 to include showers that are highly usable. For example, steam systems, bench seating, anti-fog mirrors, linear drains, storage shelving, soap and shampoo distributors and other practical features will make the shower a place you can spend more time, relax and enjoy greater conveniences than traditional showers offer. Showers will become a place to stretch and spend some time alone before starting a long day — or at the end of one.
- Maximized Storage: To achieve a nice, clean bathroom, you need space for all your stuff. This is why bathroom trends in 2018 are moving to the maximization of storage space. Multiple compartments, cabinets and drawers that sink into a bathroom's design and disappear from sight will be popular parts of 2018 bathroom trends.
- Ultimate Relaxation: Bathrooms have never been a place of comfort, necessarily. But that’s starting to change as spa-like features find their way into homes. Bathrooms are becoming more spacious and are including more features, too. Everything from island baths to multi-directional shower heads are making the bathroom more of a living space than a function space.
