A few notes on this one. Although these bathrooms really sell the idea of losing all your shower doors, you may still need to keep one wall of glass to prevent the water from going everywhere. You also will need to integrate the drain and plan to have this type of shower as the floor will need to be sculpted to drain into an area so you don’t end up with a flood of water pouring out from your bathroom door. Last but not least – these showers can be breezy (as in cold) if you are used to tighter smaller shower spaces as you don’t have as much steam or heat around your body while you shower, so you will want to make sure you have a suitable shower head to keep you warm during your wash.

“The recessed style is preferred in traditional baths or upscale ones, since this look has cleaner, simpler lines,” she explains.

My motto has always been to write and publish on my blog what I personally want to read about.

“Look for plain wood or faux wood blinds or shutters that offer clean lines and a less cluttered look,” suggests Nicola Croughan, an interior designer with Blinds Direct.

It wouldn’t be a new year without at least a few roundups of some of the trends that we are seeing pop up in the design world. And while yes, you shouldn’t follow the trends from year to year and adapt or change your style to what seems “in”. We do like pulling these trend roundups together and showcasing some of our favorites because we love introducing you to what is new and “fresh” in the world of design – after all there is A LOT of fun new stuff out there that you might not know about, and there are often a lot of trends that although they might be “new” on the market can feel timeless when done the right way in your own home. Today we are kicking it off with all things Bathroom.

Steel frame shower doors, simple hardware, and a traditional freestanding tub. Yes, please.

Next up, the freestanding bathtub. You may have noticed it in a lot of the other trend pictures already in this post, but we wanted to call it out directly as it is such a beautiful option. My best friend Corbett just did it in her Master Bathroom and MAN is it stunning. She has a full wall of tile behind it and we cannot wait to get in there and style it out and shoot it to show it to you.

This room leans a bit shabby chic which may mean it isn’t for you, but for a rustic and antique style it works well in the space with that rusted clawfoot tub.

Sally Breer really sold the idea in her loft where she had the bathtub in the bedroom area up on a pedestal and then the rest of the bathroom was in a separate room. If you need a bit more privacy during your tub time than this would give you, then scroll fast and skip to the next trend, but if you are into it then let’s look at a few more that have done it well.

I started this interior design blog in 2010 as a journal of my style and home projects with the belief that design should be approachable, informational and accessible no matter what budget.

You can also bring in a modern style bathtub into an older space like they did above. It helps that there is a dramatic arched window framing it out, but man is this setup beautiful.

There are quite a few companies that make terrazzo tiles or slabs that you can purchase. Or you can customize it and pick all the different colors and materials that go into the mix which an installer will then pour, grind and polish in your home which will give you your own unique look.

My interior design blog remains personal, totally transparent and honest – documenting both proud and embarrassing design moments/mistakes and giving real life pricing and expectations.

It also allows you to keep everything else minimal and simple (like you see below) and let the hardware and the graphic dose of black in the room do the talking. It’s subtlety at it’s finest.

So, we expect some feedback –  which ones do you love? Which ones do you not love so much? Do you see any of these being “too trendy” and we will quickly tire of them in a few years or do you see some of these still looking stylish for years and years. We would love to know your thoughts below.

The same concept can be applied to a monochromatic bathroom like the one below if you aren’t into a bright pop of color.

Stick it in a little alcove and really make it a focal point like they did here.

“Vessels are good for a powder room or a bath that isn’t host to a morning routine where you need space to spread out,” notes Chiarilli.

The same holds for that oversize tub, she adds. “Once you get your body under the warm bubbly water, anything bigger in the tub department is a waste of water, energy, and money.”

Notice a few trends happening in this bathroom? Floating vanity, integrated shower, a ledge (although it is in the shower) AND black fixtures. Yes, yes, yes, and yes.

It can be done with a double vanity as well, and a towel bar in front like you see above. Or, a simple single vanity with an integrated towel bar like you see below.

Splashes and drips (from all kinds of sources) don’t mix with over-the-top bathroom drapes. If you’re lucky enough to have a window in your bathroom, keep the decor around it on the simple side, say experts.

Something to keep in mind with these. If you have the need for a lot of storage then you should consider having some sort of medicine cabinet, vanity or storage solution as these ledges really should only be used for the prettier items in your life. IE your shaving cream, anti-itch cream, and floss should be kept elsewhere as this is the space for your prettier perfumes, soaps, and a bud vase or small piece of art.

It’s not just for tile either – you can use the same material like a plaster, limewash or concrete to cover the entire bathroom like they did above. And if you are feeling extra bold, then the bathroom below might be for you what with its graphic pattern and bold emerald green color.

Bathrooms typically aren’t a place to “take a risk” or do something “trendy” but we are very into all of these spaces so let’s get into it and talk Bathroom Trends we are seeing in 2018:

And trendy vessel sinks (which look like bowls perched on countertops) are fading from the horizon, too.

By Floating Vanity we mean the type of vanity that has all of its parts and plumbing components tucked neatly under some sort of a skirt either made of stone, wood or another material so it visually simplifies the entire counter and vanity area. It has always had a place in modern design, but we are now seeing it used in other styles and we love the results.

This one is made a big debut in the 80’s and is back and better than ever. When this “one material” trend it is done right, it can really turn the space into an impactful, uniform and special place. Do I think I could handle a bubblegum pink bathroom every single day, NO. But I could be very into this space if it was in all white or a more muted pastel tone. Basically rather than drywalling, taking the tile half way up the wall, or filling the space with a collection of materials you do the same material from floor to ceiling and wall to wall and embrace one material for the entire bathroom.

I love all of these so much, and they are giving me major inspiration for a freestanding tub in the mountain fixer-upper. Should we do one? What are your thoughts on them.

“But I wouldn’t put it up in a bathroom if I were planning to sell in a year or two,” she counsels.

If you’re thinking of ripping out your shower-bathtub combo and replacing it with just a shower stall, think again. Young families still want a tub option for kids, points out Gericke.

I love that they eliminated the plumbing from under the sink on this one and then brought the lines down from the ceiling to provide water to the faucet. I am guessing the mirror is on another wall in the room and that this room is a powder room versus a full bathroom, but regardless I love this sweet little blue and white bathroom.

Millennials, however, might decide to use it anyway, says Gericke: “Since this generation didn’t grow up with wallpaper, they tend to think it’s new and unique.”

Alright, this is one that we are very, very into and see having a big future both in 2018 and in some upcoming design projects we have going on. Yes, I love brass (and always will), but black is back and better than ever.

Here you see it in a bit more traditional style and not only does it free up floor space to really show off that plaid tile but it also visually makes the bathroom feel more open which is a good solution if your bathroom is laid out like this one where you open the door and walk into the side of the sink versus the front of the sink. See, trends are more than just visual eye candy, they solve problems too.

You can keep it monochromatic like they did above with shades of white, or go graphic like they did below with this jewel toned bathroom.

I love this little room with that graphic tile and simple clean vanity area.

The wallpaper trend comes and goes, says Jamie Gold, a certified kitchen designer in San Diego and author of “New Bathroom Idea Book.”

These T-shaped sinks may seem attractive, but they don’t offer a lick of function, says Gericke. “A pedestal sink has no storage so it’s not a great choice, especially in a master bath,” she says.

“Some people think neon yellow or orange is perfect in a small half-bath, but the color can be so intense that it makes the space feel overwhelming and small,” explains Gericke.

Excuse me while I rest my copy of Jane Eyre on my bathroom vanity while I jump in the shower real quick.

After styling for magazines and catalogues for years, I started my own interior design blog, won HGTV Design Star, and have gone on to host my own hit TV show Secrets from a Stylist, Author the book STYLED, and create the design firm Emily Henderson Design.

You’ll notice in these examples that if they used a lot of marble then they didn’t use a lot of anything else. The design, the styling, and the accessories are kept at a minimum as the marble serves as the main visual talking point.

Black is a color that is always timeless, will never go out of style and works with just about any design style which makes this trend a very easy one to adopt for basically anyone. It also mixes well with just about any surface, material or hardware so it makes it very easy to mix it in to your current bathroom setup.

You’ll also notice that most of these examples feature concrete that is lighter in tone which is also the reason why it works. We saw so much concrete come into trend years ago that was so dark, colored, or tinted that the fresher, lighter version is a great contrast (no pun intended) to what we saw come into trend hard and then quickly fade. Who is to say that this won’t fade as well… but, we love the look of it.

“And please stay away from a horizontal listello band (see in photo above) that runs around the room or shower,” she advises. “It shortens the feeling of the room because it splits your line of vision. And most folks install it too low so you end up looking down at it, which you should never do.”

Ok, now that we have gotten through the logistics. Let’s admire some of these integrated showers.

“There’s a fine line between a comfortable, well-appointed bathroom and a luxury spa that you only see on vacation or in the movies,” reports Beverly Solomon, a designer with the eponymous firm.

It’s not often that interior designers will have the chance to poke their heads in your bathroom, but if they did, they might not like what they see. We’re not talking about gunky toilets or hairy shower drains, but things you actually think make your bathroom look better … but don’t, at least in their professional opinions. Curious which bathroom decor ideas make them cringe? Read on for a list of bathroom features that might seem nice at first glance, but are better avoided.

“A lot of flippers and DIYers install plain beige 12-inch tiles thinking they’ll add more bang for the buck, but this isn’t correct—most clients want marble tile or a wood look for their bathrooms,” reports Jenny Gericke, a designer with Gather Home Design.

Here you can see it in a modern setup, or below in this bold black and white bathroom.

Instead, consider an accent wall or bringing in color through accessories, she suggests.

It’s time to say buh-bye to this box hanging on the wall. These dated fixtures are definitely falling out of favor, says Gold.

We saw concrete come into trend very hard right around the early 2000’s. Remember everyone DIYing kitchen counters and staining their concrete floors? But the more refined version is happening in bathrooms and it is looking good my friends. It can be used on the walls and vanity like you see above, to form yourself spa-like bathtub like you see below…

Or even to build yourself a custom sink like in this one.  I love the combo of materials in this one. Stained black wood walls, concrete sink, brass fixtures, and honed wood countertops.

You might be hating this trend at this point as it is purely aesthetic and not the most functional but we love the extra ledge it provides to add a little something special into your bathroom.

This one definitely isn’t for everyone or every floor plan. BUT, if you are one that likes a romantic soak in the tub and also has enough room to house the sink, toilet and shower in a separate room then we have you covered with this one. This one can either go real cheesy real fast and make it end up like you are singing your way through a Taylor Swift music video (which does sound pretty amazing) but if it is done in a tasteful way and if it works with the architecture of your house then it can work.

The winner here? Undermount sinks situated below the countertop, “because they have staying power and are more versatile,” Chiarilli says.

Who’s cleaning this enormous room? If you have household help or a weekly cleaning person, then definitely go to town with a palatial bathroom. But if you’re like the rest of us, consider scaling back.

Shower doors you say…. who needs shower doors? This trend embraces the lack of them or the very sparing use of them and we love it. If you’ve been to Europe then you may have seen this concept in just about every home, hostel, or hotel and for good reason. It not only visually is more simple in the bathroom but it frees up a lot of space needed for the door to open and close. So if you have a small bathroom it could be a good solution for you.

I believe that your home should look like you, that every room is soul-less without something vintage or antique. I also believe in having fun. Like, a lot of fun.

Part of me wishes they would have continued the terrazzo down on the floor in this bathroom as those walls are so beautiful but the visual break on the floor makes this bathroom really work and lets the terrazzo stand out.

Or if you have the space, you could bump out a wall in your existing bathroom and add a skylight and a beautiful freestanding tub like you see here and you have a pretty wonderful place to get ready in the morning. All this construction is obviously easier said than done and the plumbing and actual bathtub can be expensive but these bathrooms do sell the idea very well.

This room by Leanne Ford really showcases how black fixtures can update and slightly modernize the feel of an older home and bring a visual graphic dose to what would otherwise feel traditional.

With marble you can also “bookmatch” it, which is what they have done below. Basically, they take a large slab of marble, chop it in half and then match the ends so the veining lines up and it looks like you are opening a book with matching pages. Its a pretty dramatic (and somewhat costly) way to install marble but man does it look beautiful.

Decorative tile is fine in small doses, but covering the entire bathroom in it looks too busy, says Sara Chiarilli, an interior designer with Artful Conceptions in Tampa, FL.

Remember a few years ago when we stopped hanging things and started leaning things on ledges. Many a painting I have styled out leaning up on a ledge towards the wall vs. hanging on the wall, and the concept is seeping into the bathroom. This trend may only be fitting for the “lifestyle mafia” type person. But man do I want to decant all my soaps, toss out my generic toothbrushes, and lean a little piece of art on a lot of these ledges.

Marble will always be in trend and has always been in trend. But marble done in large overscale slabs from floor to ceiling like we are highlighting here is something that we love this year. Is it cost effective? NO. But it definitely makes a statement and is something that will last forever. You will want to steer clear of anything that has too much variation in it as that visually will end up making things look very chaotic and may not feel as timeless as it once did when you installed it, but a simple veining in a tonal color combo will always stay classic.

2017 was the year of the “furniture vanity”. The vanity that looks like it was a custom piece of furniture that worked perfectly with your decor that had then been retrofit to house a sink and plumbing. So… is 2018 the year of the floating vanity? We aren’t quite sure yet, but keep reading to find out more.

As you can see it works basically everywhere. It’s simple, clean, classic and timeless which make it a winning trend for us this year.

If you do choose a vivid vanity, pick neutral tile, recommends Chiarilli. “Or if your tile is ‘wow,’ then keep cabinetry simple.”

“Peel-and-stick decals on walls or floors are used by many DIY homeowners to freshen the bathroom, but it often looks cheap,” says Gericke. Plus, “it’s a nightmare to remove and replace for the next owner.”

Last but certainly not least, Terrazzo. Terrazzo seeped into the end of 2017 as a big new trend on the design scene and we only see it getting bigger. For those of you not familiar with terrazzo it is composite material that involves the pouring of multiple materials into a binding agent (like cement) and then they lay it down and grind it all to a uniform surface. It is a very laborious and very expensive process, but it is something uniquely custom and not something that you will see in everyone else’s house.

“At least one bathroom in the house should have a tub or a shower-tub combination setup to help with eventual resale,” she says.
