bathroom trends for 2018

Forget passing fads. These bathroom trends will add stylish luxury, and added value to your house for years to come.

bathroom trends - a monochrome colour scheme


A Monochrome Colour Scheme

It’s no coincidence that most of the images here feature a monochrome palette. Black and white is always classy. It will continue to be in fashion long after peachy pink and peppermint green have been painted over (twice). It’s traditional for bathrooms and yet, continues to work with strictly contemporary schemes too. Trust me, you will never regret choosing a black and white scheme in the bathroom.

Bathroom trends - metal framed shower screens - Crittall window style

MetalCraft screens are now available from Alternative Bathrooms showrooms, with prices starting from £1800.

Metal Framed Showers

Imitating the on-trend look of the classic Crittall window, metal framed shower screens offer a linear, architectural look for the bathroom. Paired with luxurious marble they give a very high-end finish, but they are equally at home with simple white metro tiles creating a more industrial feel.

bathroom trends - large scale marble tiles

Marble Finishes

Marble was once prohibitively expensive for most of us, but it’s now possible to create the same effect with large format marble tiles. Tile the entire bathroom and create your own spa-like retreat or be extra canny and just tile behind the shower. Either way you will be adding a touch of luxury.

bathroom trends - digital showers, black and white schemes, minimal design

Pure Bathroom Collection

Digital Showers

Gone are the days where running water interfered with the shower temperature. The latest cutting edge showers are digitally controlled. And at no cost to design either. This digital shower (above), features advanced thermostatic technology to ensure the shower stays at the preferred temperature, has an integral pump and is almost noiseless. It’s also easy to install and has an activated cleaning mode for easier cleaning. A fusion of style and functionality.

bathroom trends - patterned tiles

Patterned Tiles

The trend for patterned tiles in bathrooms is one that has been around for a while. But it’s not going anywhere. It’s best to leave the pattern on the floor where it belongs and decorate the rest of the room plainly. Or conversely put the patterned tiles on the walls and leave the floor plain. It’s entirely up to you.

bathroom trends - gold brassware


Gold Taps

Chrome has had it good for far too long. Gold is the new colour for your taps in the bathroom. Sleek designs and minimal detailing ensure the look is bang-up-to-date. And the perfect complement to a monochrome scheme.

    Wow, what a selection. I absolutely love that marble one with the metal framed shower screen. Timeless chic for sure. I’m so pleased I went all out with white in my bathroom. I can accessorise with whatever colour happens to be on trend at the time if I feel I need to update it a bit.

    As much as I loved my bathroom design when it was done, I know if I were to do it again now, it’d be so much different! Love all these designs and the black & white and marble is just so classic. With a gold tap of course! Beautiful inspiration! xx
