The National Kitchen and Bath Association has released their 2018 trends report, and the most popular bathroom style for 2018 is…
Now, if you’re like us, you try to keep up with trends and styles in bathroom design, but may be a touch behind the designers themselves. So if you, like us, were unsure what a “transitional bathroom” might be, never fear! We’ve got that and more, via Realtor.com.
For bathrooms, the most popular style was transitional. The look features wood cabinets, painted walls, brushed-nickel fixtures, and a color palette of white, gray, and blue. Contemporary, which has quartz countertops, free-standing bathtubs, and curbless showers, came in second, followed by more traditional bathrooms.
The National Kitchen and Bath Association surveyed over two hundred remodelers, builders, and general contractors to find out where people are spending – and what is trending – in the bathroom.
They overwhelmingly want quartz countertops, wooden cabinets, and porcelain or tile floors. They also prefer painted walls to tiles and white, off-white, and gray color schemes rather than blues.
And people have happily spent to get what they want.
When it comes to bathrooms, folks spent the most on showers, at $11 billion; flooring, at $10.8 billion; vanities, at $9.5 billion; bathtubs, at $9.1 billion; and countertops, at $8 billion in 2016, according to the association.
We don’t know that the transitional bathroom is actually new… it’s really a lot of classic design elements, recombined in an interesting way. But we like it!
