Five bathroom colour trends for 2018
The bathroom is the perfect room to try out a new bold colour scheme to welcome in the New Year. The smallest room in the house provides scope to bring in the new with a vibrant look or a serene restful haven. Go for overstated luxury and drama with gorgeous touches of colour, metal and over-the-top statement pieces.
Black Is Back
Black and contrasts will bring drama to the normal bathroom ranges, including black sanitary ware such as baths and décor such as floors and walls. Offset black with touches of gold luxury or tone shades of monochrome. Add industrial touches for contemporary finish or velvet for pure luxury. Dark finishes are high on the wish list for 2018.
You could go for vibrant summer shades such as yellows and greens – both warm and fresh or at the electric end of the scale. The natural feel of summer sun and garden greens will tone well together, bringing the outside in, with pops of drama in electric highlights. Let nature into your sanctuary – complete the look by adding plants or bringing the outdoors in with giant windows.
Pretty in Pink
Pink resurrects its place in the bathroom from the dated look of yesteryear. Now vibrant in many tones and contracts, the pink spectrum comes into its own. Whether it is painted walls, pink tiles or highlights from bright or funky accessories, the colours are deep, strong, modern and contrasted with pale and soft but offbeat shades.
Pastel Makes a Comeback
With a break from the traditional pastels, the distinctive colours of minty greens and sandy pinks provide a gentle soothing backdrop and harmonious restful atmosphere.
Metallic sheen becomes the new neutral with soft tones of gold and silver. Gold touches bring that touch of luxury with a soft ambience. Or try copper for a real statement – a copper bath makes an amazing statement centrepiece when tied in with toning accessories.
