3 Bathroom Colour Trends for 2018: Bold, Blue, and Black & White

Tired of standard “bathroom white”? Bathroom colour trends in 2018 come in many shades, from soothing and spa-like, to bold pops of purple, yellow, and pink. To help narrow down your choice, Knowles Plumbing has identified three colour trends in bathroom design for 2018: Bold, Blue, and Black-and-white.

1) Bold

The OPTIK freestanding tub by MAAX.

Go bold in your bathroom with splashes of bright colour. Bathroom accents in pinks, purples, yellows, reds or vibrant blues can add zing to your personal space. Bathroom colour can be achieved in any number of ways, with vanities, tubs, cabinets, tile, and accessories. To help narrow down your bold colour choices, Pantone has named bold “Ultra Violet” (Pantone 18-3838) as its 2018 colour of the year. Pantone colour forecasters also count Meadowlark Yellow, Cherry Tomato, and Arcadia Green (all shown below) in their palette of most popular brights for the 2018 Spring and Summer seasons.

2) Blue

Keith Urban may say “Blue Ain’t Your Colour“, but when it comes to bathrooms we disagree! Shades of royal, denim, and lake blue blend nicely with decor in Muskoka. In 2018, indigo blue is popular for a Zen-like feel in a spa-like bathroom. Rich turquoise can make a lakeside washroom pop — something fun for a powder room, kids’ ensuite, or a funky bunkie. And sailor blue is a time-tested classic, ideal for that boathouse look.

3) Black & White

Classic black-and-white adds character to any period-style bath. Mix the old with the new for a contemporary twist on a time-honoured design. Think: White clawfoot tub with a roll-top edge, black and white tile, and a modern, rectangular sink. Add black faucets, like the Riobel Momenti shown in the photo above. Checker your walls with white subway tile  for that classic Edwardian look. For those going for bold, consider the black-and-white freestanding bath paired with glossy black vanities, all by Victoria + Albert:
