Bathroom Interior Design Trends

The master bathroom interior design trends for 2018 are full of new, upcoming, and trendy ideas you will want to review if you are considering a bathroom renovation. Even if you are not planning on gutting the entire bathroom and are only updating certain aspects of it, you should still check out these trends.

  1. Heated Bathroom Floors

If you dislike walking across a cold bathroom floor, then you will want to have heated bathroom floors. Even though floor heating systems have been around for a while, they were only compatible with specific types of flooring, like ceramic and marble. With recent advances in technologies, today’s floor heating systems are designed to work with a wide array of flooring, including high-quality vinyl, laminates, and hardwoods.

  1. Recycle, Repurpose, and Reuse

Rather than tossing out old cabinets, countertops, and mirrors, people are recycling, repurposing, and reusing many existing elements from their current bathrooms. Some different options you could consider for your bathroom update include:

  • Cabinet Resurfacing: You can paint or stain the cabinets and drawers different colors and change out handles. There are also various painting techniques you can use to give the cabinets a vintage look.
  • Countertop Resurfacing: Certain types of countertops can be refinished using special paints and coatings.
  • Mirrors: You have several options, here, to give mirrors an updated look. You could have a large mirror cut into several smaller mirrors and various shapes and sizes. Another popular trend is to take accent trim pieces to make it appear like the mirror has been framed, much like a picture.
  1. Hi-Tech Features

Other models can stream music and connect to Alexa, Google Home, Siri, and so on.

  1. Maximizing Smaller Spaces

For homes with smaller master bathrooms, you can have a modern and trendy bathroom. Some people are downsizing the size of cabinets and sinks, getting a wall-mounted toilet, and ditching separate tubs and showers for a single tub shower enclosure.
