It's the one room in a house that you can't live without: The bathroom. Over the years it has evolved from including the basic necessities to being a spa-like retreat with the latest relaxing amenities and, increasingly, the latest technologies. Designs that range from modern to more traditional can have the latest looks and innovations. Here are some examples of gorgeous bathroom designs and new products to inspire your bathroom upgrades and renovations for 2018. First up, this bathroom from American Standard's luxury line, DXV, shows how you can combine a traditional bathroom with leading edge bathroom fixtures. Dark gray paneled walls and a herringbone floor set the stage for modern sconces and a floating, backlit mirror that sit above a floating vanity. A modern, rectangular sink and floating wall unit complete the main section. The wall-mounted toiled is minimalist and helps add a sleek edge to the room.
According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association, bathroom fixtures take up 20% of the renovation budget on average so when choosing fixtures and finishes consider who is using the space and how heavily it will be used. Is it a kid's bathroom? Then plastic laminate flooring and countertops are a good option because they're both durable and inexpensive (and high-end material is of less importance to children). You'll thank yourself later for using finishes that are low maintenance and easy to keep clean. In that regard, choose quartz instead of marble and make sure glass shower doors are treated with anti-spotting agents. In terms of fixtures, you'll want high-quality construction like all-brass parts and a PVD finish that will resist scratches. Basic chrome is cheaper than materials like nickel or bronze. Low budget, high impact swaps include replacing specific features; here's our guide on how to pick out the best bathroom vanity. When making any changes consider where you can creatively hide storage in the room and for energy efficiency be sure to look for low-flow toilet models.
