2018 Kitchen and Bathroom Trends

Are you looking to update, refresh or completely redesign your kitchen and/or bathroom in 2018? We’ve got the latest trends for this year, so you can check out what’s in with the world of interior design…


Be Bold!

A little splash of colour can make all the difference to what feels like a drab and tired space. If you’d like to refresh your bathroom this year, but want to do it on a budget, then this is a budget-friendly fix! Whether you add daring shades to a feature wall, or go for a statement bath or basin, make sure you go big, bold and beautiful for 2018!

Make it Matte

Going for a gloss finish works very well in small bathroom spaces as it reflects light and helps to create the feel of a larger space. But, if you’re fortunate enough to have a big bathroom, this year go for a matte finish. Soft shades of grey and blue work well together in a matte finish. Plus, it’s practical too as it doesn’t show up any fingerprints!

Go for Brass

Although you can’t really go wrong with chrome, if you’d like to add a more subtle, quirky twist to your bathroom this year then go for brass. Brass taps and brass door handles give a slight vintage vibe, and add soft warm tones to any bathroom.

Wonderful Wood

If you’re in love with everything Scandi in the home then why not bring that design into your bathroom? Soft timber can help create a natural and relaxing atmosphere. You can combine dark, rustic tones with light golden woods to highlight and accent your space.


Perfect Pastels


If you’ve always dreamed of a light, airy kitchen make sure you go for pastel paints in 2018. Combine pale pinks and baby blues with gloss white cabinets and soft grey surfaces. This will help to open up your space and let the light in.

Moroccan Themed

For a statement kitchen that takes you away to a faraway land, incorporate quintessential Moroccan prints this year. You can go for full-on patterned tiles in rich colours or, for a subtler nod to an exotic destination, use chunky wooden worktops, lanterns and pendant lighting.

Shining Metals

For those us who enjoy a little touch of luxury in our homes, make sure you add a few shiny surfaces. Reflective taps and light fittings are the perfect way this year to capture elegance in your kitchen.

Eco Kitchens

It’s really important nowadays to consider the environment. But interior design has taken the eco-friendly ethos and turned it into a trend for 2018! Think lots of bright whites, plywood, cork flooring and house plants to create your ideal eco kitchen.

That wraps up our 2018 kitchen and bathroom trends. If you’re looking to revamp or refresh your kitchen or bathroom this year then this is the best place to start!
