Irish Bathroom Trends for 2018

Bathrooms can sometimes be forgotten as most Irish home owners focus on the living area of their home or the kitchen and bedrooms. However, the truth is a bathroom is an extremely important part of a home and depending on your lifestyle, you may have guests visiting from time to time giving you ample opportunities to showcase your on-trend bathroom; but how? There are many new bathroom trends for 2018 that will liven up your bathroom with some little tweaks and of course, buying the right stuff accessories. Here is our definitive guide to bathroom trends for 2018:

Colour and Contrast- Indigo is the colour of the moment bringing a splash of the ocean to bathrooms with its sensual sparkle. Other good options are the inclusion of bold accents against an otherwise bland bathroom by adding bright and bold coloured accessories or wallpaper/tiles that will add a hint of indulgence.

Brass is Big- Chrome has been the master of the bathroom for a long time but its crown may be about to waiver with the ever-growing popularity of brass and indeed, copper. The traditional taps with their steel and shiny look is out, replaced by a more luxurious and stylish finish. However, be careful of overdoing it as there is a fine line between stylishness and gaudiness.

Material Magic- Wood has predominantly being used in other areas of the home but this year it will find its way to bathrooms and quite rightly so. It benefits from a warm and cosy ambience that works well against white for a clean and sleek design.

 

Bathtubs and Showers- The freestanding bathtub is still popular while the island bath is gaining popularity with its classic appearance. There are a multitude of shapes to choose from including square, oval, round, asymmetrical or rectangular. To get people talking, it is usually positioned in the centre of the bathroom surrounded by equally elegant accessories. Showers are a vital part of any person’s daily life and ‘His and Hers’ showers are on the rise. If you have the room, this is a glorious way to style your bathroom perfectly. Tile Style has some fabulous baths and accessories that may meet your needs.

While gloss is brilliant as it reflects light, matt is a good option for larger bathroom spaces and it is easier to clean too for family bathrooms. Adding furnishings to larger bathrooms is advised as it will bring a sense of relaxation to a bathroom, tossing in a comfortable chair with a soft throw is a good way to start.

Green Fingers- Such is life now, we have an improved sense of mental health awareness furthermore, studies have proved that plants in the home promote better mental health and they look stunning too. Local garden centres are a great place to start your nature journey and gather up anything leafy or fern like for your on-trend bathroom.
