16 Bathroom Decor Trends That Will Be Hot In 2018 – Forget Millennial pink and welcome lavender! Lavender is going to be the trendiest shade in 2018. Besides being an extremely relaxing color, it will be outstanding in your bathroom walls or decor. So take a look at our bathroom decor suggestions with the hottest 2018 decor trends.
“Millennial pink is still around and I still love it, but it’s morphing into lavender and lilac,” says Nancy Fire, creative director of HGTV HOME, Design Works International and Studio NYC Design. “People were sarcastic about millennial pink at the beginning, but it’s being used to bring out beautiful, soft tones with accents that are deeper.”
High Contrast Palettes
“I’m really into saturated color with white to balance it out so it doesn’t feel overwhelming,” says Joanna Gaines, the star of HGTV’s Fixer Upper and mastermind behind Magnolia Home by Joanna Gaines Paint in partnership with Kilz. If you’re finding difficult picking out a bold color, Gaines recommends green, because it’s found in nature and is timeless.
“Hard geometrics are going to be huge, and I think circles are the new triangle,” says Genevieve Gorder, a designer on the upcoming Trading Spaces reboot and spokesperson for Air Wick limited edition seasonal scents. You can start small with graphic wallpaper, rugs or even the floor tiles.
Tone on Tone
“When trim work and walls are the same color it feels more interesting,” says Gaines. If you really want to embrace this trend, paint your dresser a similar shade as your walls, as seen here.
“We’re getting away from the brushed silver and we’re moving into those golden brass tones that are warm and subtle,” says Doug Wilson, a designer on the upcoming Trading Spaces reboot. “It’s a nice substitute for the stainless steel that’s expected and pedestrian at this point.”
“We’re using richer color palettes with different colored metals, such as deeper gem tones, velvet upholstery and sleek black and white marbles,” says Karen Asprea of Whitehall Interiors. “Using lacquered wall panels where you might have seen wood paneling in the past allows for more flexibility in terms of color and finish, and really adds to the environment of any space.”
“Green is going to come back in a big way, but in shades of olive and chartreuse,” says TV personality and designer on the new season of Trading Spaces, Sabrina Soto. These shades are softer, complementing people’s desires for cozy homes.
“For me, it’s more important to design a space that fits within the architecture it resides in and, in some way, reflect the geography of its location. For example, incorporating natural limestone and taking advantage of the gorgeous views to set the tone of the spaces,” says Shawn Henderson of Shawn Henderson Interior Design and the designer behind Turks & Caicos residential resort Rock House. “Choosing natural elements and using materials that are long-lasting will result in a beautiful space with longevity that will stand the test of time.”
“We expect that baskets and other natural, artisan accessories will continue to give homes a bit of international flair in 2018,” says Sarah Hullinger of HBA and designer behind Caroline Bay in Bermuda.
“Geode and agate wallpaper will become more popular in the mass market,” says Soto. “Now you see it in small boutiques, but I think it’s going to become more prevalent in the Targets and HomeGoods of the world.”
“Decorative finishes, like glazes, will warm houses next year,” says Wilson. Here, a charcoal gray trim breaks up the white, but doesn’t stray too far for conservative tastes.
“Subway tiles have become a safe material often used for renovations as well as new construction. Recently, there has been a trend towards using larger format tile and even slab sized porcelain sheets,” says Asprea. “This shift is not only aesthetic, but one of function, as larger tile has less grout and is both easier to install and maintain.”
“It’s nice to see yellow coming back, along with other colors most people weren’t comfortable with prior, like red and coral,” says Fire. In the past, she says most people gravitated towards cool colors and neutrals.
“I don’t think it will last too long, but the look of velvet is a big trend,” says Soto. She embraced this material by buying a deep blue velvet couch for her formal living room, but if you want a safer choice, go with a soft gray.
“I love the resurgence on the feminine side of the big beautiful florals. It’s coming from a boho trend that’s more causal,” says Fire. Another favorite pattern of hers is geometric shapes, especially on wallpaper.
Juliet Gold, Interior Designer at 50 West and the Residences at Prince and founder of Juliet Gold Design, says she’s partial to light fixtures that are part of the artisan trend. “I’ve seen a shift towards local artisans and small businesses manufacturing high-end lighting fixtures, including those incorporating LEDs.”
