April 5, 2018

Bathrooms might be small in size, but they’re big on style. In fact, bathrooms play a key role in the overall value of a home, so their design and decor should never be underestimated. If you’re thinking of revamping your bathroom in the near future, consider any one of the following hot bathroom trends for 2018 to gain some inspiration.

Under Counter Appliances

An increasing amount of technology is being used in bathrooms, meaning more small appliances are being implemented into this space. It’s not uncommon to see warming drawers for linens and robes, wireless music systems, televisions, and even refrigerators to store makeup and medications in bathrooms. While the kitchen may have been the room with all the appliances, the bathroom is rivalling it.

Different Tile Shapes

More and more interior designers are incorporating a mix of different tile shapes in the bathroom, whether on the floors or walls. Color blocked tiles may already be one of the more popular bathroom trends, but mixing up tiles in the same color family is a subtler way to capitalize on this trend. It can add visual interest without being too busy.

Bamboo Flooring

Tile might be the conventional flooring material in bathrooms, but bamboo is making a splash on the scene. They’re durable, sustainable, and super pretty to look at. Don’t be surprised if you see a lot of it on bathroom floors this year.

Stone Vessel Sinks

Vessel sinks are nothing new in bathroom trends, but 2018 is seeing a lot more hand-carved stone vessel sinks. Hand-carved stone gives a sink a much more unique look with a fabulous organic element to it.

Metal Frame Shower Doors and Walls

Interior designers expect to see metal-framed showers make a big statement in 2018. While this trend has been steadily growing over the recent past, this year it is expected to really pop in the bathroom.


Mid-century modern style is making a comeback in bathrooms thanks to the emergence of millwork in this space. The natural tones of millwork can help add an element of warmth and comfort that you can’t get from traditional stone and tile.
