Bathroom Decor Inspirations Not To Miss In 2018
According to Canadian artist and designer Shawn Gibson, “Bathrooms are all about escape. It’s Mommy’s quiet zone. So you’ll see them with loungers, chairs and pillows”. Guess what? We couldn’t agree more.
A bathroom is that space in the house that lets you escape all the stress and noise of the day. It is your cocoon that has zero interference from the outside world. The purpose of a bathroom changes multiple times in a day. It is your makeup room. It is where you drain all your worries with a hot shower.
It is where you actually relax, isn’t it?

But surprisingly enough it is the least thought-of room of the house? Most homeowners don’t pay much attention to it! What’s interesting is that the bathroom is just an extension to the bedroom and requires as much attention.
One can do a lot when it comes to decorating the room. A bathroom can entail anything, depending upon the size of the room, intent of the owner and architecture of the house. Without further delay, let us sift through the top five decor inspirations of 2018:
1) Italian marble all the way
One of the fastest ways to change the look of your bathroom is by changing the tiles. Switch to Italian tiles on the floor and walls. Easy-to-maintain and absolutely glamourous, you will ‘not’ end up scrubbing it clean for days on end. Italian marble will add a right dose of luxe to the bathroom.

Don’t just stick to white or grey marble accent. Opt for a piece with a geometrical or wavy pattern to give character to the area. Seek professional assistance if you are not sure about the colour-coordination in the bathroom or which marble pattern to select.
2) Innovate with LED lighting
Since a person carries out his or her daily activities in the area, it is important for the bathroom to be well-lit. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun with the lighting.

Ditch those dusty bulbs and dated sconces with fancy LED light fixtures. This option is not only eco-friendly but also offers complete value for money. If you want to install mood lighting, you can do that too.
Play with the intensity of LED lights as per your convenience. From fiery orange and cool blue to bright red and vivacious pink – you can splash a tint of any colour in the bath area by installing mood light fixtures.

Who says bathrooms have to look boring? Clearly, Marina Putilovskaya, a partner interior designer on Mansionly, likes to experiment with bathroom lights.
3) Steam showers or bath tub?
Who doesn’t love to take a hot shower after a hectic day at work? Upgrade your bath area with a high-tech steam shower and convert the space into a relaxing spa retreat. There are so many steam shower options for you to shop from. If you are more of a soak-and-chill kind of person and if the space permits, then install a tub in your bathroom.
You can either play with a monochromatic palette or install a tub with patterns. Surround the tub area with sea pebbles and create your very own spa in the house. Whatever you choose, a bathtub is a modest yet plush addition to the area.
4) Beautify your walls
Don’t just restrict your artwork to the bedroom wall. Hang your favourite framed art prints in your bathroom. They could be fun signages on bathroom rules or happy and motivational quotes that are perfect to be read early in the morning.
If hanging artwork is not your cup of tea, play with the colour of the bathroom walls. Put a fresh coat of paint in bright hues to create a theme in the room.

Conventional? Yes. Boring. Certainly not!
5) Flaunt a little gold
Why not? The colour ‘gold’ is luxurious, majestic and bright. And it is certainly an attractive hue to play with in a bathroom – don’t you agree? Add gold in small doses or in huge volumes – however you like.
Place a mirror with a intricately designed frame on the wall. Install taps in gold. And if you want to take the glam quotient to a whole new level, hang an imposing light fixture such as a chandelier right in the middle of the bathroom. What do you think?
Over to you
Transform your bathroom in a luxurious cocoon. Retreat from the bustle of everyday life and just take it easy in the space.
