When it comes to home remodeling projects, bathrooms are always a popular choice among homeowners all over the country, and this is thanks in large part to the fact that so many homeowners are starting to see their bathrooms as more of a personal sanctuary to provide a bit of comfort and relaxation at the end of a long day as opposed to a room that is just used out of necessity.
A well thought-out bathroom remodel can also be a great way to improve the overall function and value of your home as well, but only as long as the changes you make are done properly and are tasteful in their selection. If you are planning on updating or remodeling one or more of your home’s bathrooms this year, then this article is for you. In it, our team of skilled bathroom remodeling professionals will go over some of the hot new bathroom remodeling trends for 2018 to give you a bit of inspiration and several ideas that you can include in your upcoming remodel.
Efficiency Over Size
While large, luxury bathrooms are certainly in demand, many homeowners are finding that they can easily get that sense of relaxation and luxury without having to invest a lot of money in expanding their bathroom layout. So far in 2018, we are seeing a trend in design that favors smaller bathrooms with a focus on efficiency and small-scale luxury. This kind of design requires that you make efficient use of all the space you have available so your bathroom doesn’t wind up being cramped. While freestanding single tubs are still popular, and continue to get more so, space-saving walk-in showers are also a popular option. Additionally, many homeowners are choosing to invest in shelving instead of cabinets and putting in large floating vanities to increase the perception of space in the room. Small bathrooms can also make creative use of interesting floor graphics and wall patterns to make the space look and feel much larger than it actually is.
Brass & Gold Tone Fixtures
While it might seem that brass and gold fixtures are a thing of the past, they have been making a serious comeback so far in 2018. As it turns out, brass and gold tend to be a perfect compliment to the cooler gray colors that have become so popular in bathrooms in recent years, and when used tastefully, a warm gold tone can bring an air of luxury to the space.
Most bathroom vanities consist of a cabinet, countertop, faucet, and other various hardware. While mirrors and lighting are often thought of as separate entities, they are still highly important to the overall function of your bathroom. Another big trend when it comes to bathroom design so far in 2018 is the focus on new lighting schemes. Many homeowners are choosing to implement creative lighting schemes, fixtures, and even dimmers in order to give their bathroom space the perfect level of ambiance and give them that relaxed feeling. There are a number of different lighting options out there for you to choose from, and our team of professionals would be happy to go over all of the pros and cons of each with you.
Neutral Styles With Organic Undertones
Neutral decor schemes are still incredibly popular, and that trend doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon, but many homeowners are choosing to inject a big or organic infusion into the mix. In addition to an increase in the use of nature greens, blues, and warm browns for bathroom colors, reclaimed wood, brick, and natural stone are all being used to create organic accents to enhance these popular neutral styles.
