Top Bathroom Trends for 2018

Following up the holiday season, the beginning of the New Year is always the most exciting time to plan something new and fresh!

We are looking into the latest bathroom trends for 2018.

If you are looking to invest in a bathroom remodel, you’ll be wondering what are the popular current materials, textures or styles. And what are the latest designer innovations in bathroom technology?

Brass finishes

AXOR Uno Select Basin Mixer 80

The above picture is the AXOR Uno Select Basin Mixer 80

The tonal metallic touch is not specifically a brand new trend, however, is not going anywhere soon.
Especially the choice of Brass! It brings a warm golden tone to your bathroom design and ramps up the luxury feel instantly.

The AXOR Uno Select presents the newest Hansgrohe brassware technology, the select control provides simple temperature control over the tap.

Blends with natural materials

A key material that brings a tactile natural element into your bathroom design is wood.

This walnut colour Bauhaus Glide II Wall Hung Vanity Unit provides a warm tone and handcrafted feel to your bathroom design.

This is an excellent example of the elegant mixture of natural materials that can be suitable for a modern bathroom design.

The units finish is fully proofed and tested for family bathroom use, so you can rest assured there will be no distorting and splitting on the unit.

Burlington Low Level Toilet

You can also add more of a natural element by using an oak toilet seat.

It fits really well with a traditional style bathroom and is much more attractive than a generic white plastic seat.

Innovative solutions
