As the year draws to a close, we’re looking back at some of our favorite bathroom designs from 2018. It’s been a year of change and innovation in bathroom and kitchen design. And with modern technologies and materials, there are more possibilities than ever for your custom bathroom design.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at these 5 bathroom design trends we loved in 2018.
It turns out that big isn’t always better. In 2018, we turned away from huge, echoing spaces – and started to create warm, cozy bathroom spaces. Just what you need for a luxurious bath on a cold winter night! Modern bathrooms use a simple design layout, with plenty of hidden storage space and convenience in mind.
We love this trend for old-fashioned materials. Brass and gold add a vintage note to any bathroom – plus their rich, warm colors suggest comfort and home. And an elegantly dressed or distressed block of stone brings nature into your bathroom. Look out for specialist custom pieces, such as amethyst sinks and marble accent walls.
It’s all part of the trend for small, discreet spaces. In 2018, we got innovative with custom bathroom cabinets. You can conceal unsightly appliance cables and bottles in perfectly designed cupboards. The ultimate version of this trend is the floating vanity: a cabinet so perfectly built that it doesn’t even need to touch the floor!
This is a great way to add a custom note to your bathroom design. Choose a color or material that stands out, and contrast it against the neat, elegant minimalism of the rest of your custom bathroom design. If you’ve gone for a small-scale bathroom, this can also help the space to appear bigger.
Here’s another retro trend, drawing inspiration from old Istanbul and the colorful houses of Barcelona. Add just a few pieces to brighten up your design, or build an intricate pattern into your accent wall or floor.
