Most spring makeovers start in the living or kitchen. They also tend to end with these two rooms as well, with most of us having little time or energy to venture beyond the obvious. This is how we end up with the same, uninspiring bathroom year after year. While many of us tend to underrate the bathroom in terms of the value it brings to our life, a serene and rejuvenating bathroom can make a big difference indeed. Some might prefer the spa-styled bathroom while others could opt for a more rustic look in the bathroom with modern overtones. Irrespective of your preferences, top bathroom decorating trends of spring 2018 offer something for everyone!

Modern bathrooms are increasingly adopting the luxurious spa-inspired look and white still remains the most popular color in these exquisite spaces.

From style changes that are easy to execute to accents and sparking additions full of life, these 20 photos should inspire to undertake a quick bathroom makeover –

Upcycled and Unique Vanities

Recycling and reusing materials helps both you and the planet immensely. In a design world that is far more eco-conscious than ever before, it is barely a surprise that ‘fashionable trends’ also come with a heavy green tinge. Last year we harped on about the use of reclaimed wood in bathrooms and its many benefits. Today, it is the turn of upcycled bathroom vanities and all the charm that they bring! Old bicycles, bedroom dressers, forgotten slabs of wood in the basement, wooden crates and a whole lot more – pretty much everything and anything can be converted into a bathroom vanity these days.

You do need the right style and size to get it spot on. Even in the most polished contemporary bathroom, the upcycled vanity is a welcome addition that provides textural and visual contrast. It is even more at home in rustic, farmhouse and industrial style bathrooms. Take your pick and get creative!

Scandinavian Style Bathrooms

If you think about it, the spa-inspired bathroom design is not all that far off from the simplicity, unassuming elegance and light-filled radiance that Scandinavian style is renowned for. Adapt this style in the already white bathroom. It even helps with your spring cleaning objectives by decluttering the space and giving it a fresh, spacious and cheerful appeal. We do suggest adding a bright, possibly colorful or visually attractive focal point in the form of tiles, vanity or artwork to make it a space with a touch of distinctive personality! At the end of the day, it is YOUR bathroom!

Mirrors with Wooden Frame

There was a time when wood, brick and any other unpolished surface was considered simply ‘unacceptable and regressive’ in the modern bathroom. Unsurprisingly, that wave has passed and the trends of 90’s are starting to give way to more organic design elements. If you are not already on this bandwagon, the mirrors with wooden frames give you a fine and easy start. Once again, view this as a piece that brings warmth and contrast to a bathroom that is otherwise sophisticated and largely monochromatic.

Finding Space for Metallics

A bit of metallic fervor adds a whole lot of glitter and this is true for every room in your house. In the bathroom, you are at an added advantage of not having to search for opportunities to introduce bold metallic elements. Bath fixtures in brass and chrome are both equally appealing, but on the opposite ends of the visual spectrum. On feels rich, warm and classic. The other urbane, modern and cool! Metal bathtubs with a flair for the vintage and even bespoke metal-tiled backsplashes help in taking this vivacity to whole new level.
