Consider function and comfort as well as style when purchasing furniture.
Renovations take time and effort, but they can also be very exciting. Before you start knocking down any walls, look here for inspiration that you can follow in your next bathroom renovation. We’ve studied the upcoming trends for 2018, and are now ready to share it with you.
Bathrooms aren’t just for nature’s business anymore, they are now spaces where you can relax and take the time to care for yourself. This shift in perspective is seen in most elements of new year’s bathroom designs.
As this wellness trend continues to evolve, more and more people are placing natural elements like wood and plants in their bathrooms. Stone bathtubs and tiles also are very popular in new bathroom renovations.
As more time is spent in the bathroom, homeowners are increasingly looking to create larger spaces. This has left many knocking down walls and even exposing their bathrooms right into outdoor space. For those not ready to commit to such a drastic change, adding mirrors, larger windows or large-scale tile can help create the impression of a wider space.
Whereas past years focused on high-tech showers, this year the focal point of the bathroom is a freestanding tub. The trend includes tubs of all shapes and sizes, mainly carved from a natural stone.
For 2018, granite is out, quartz is in. Boring white or black is out, and colorful ceramic tiles are in. If it’s been many years and you are still rocking some outdated styles, maybe it is time to seriously consider a bathroom renovation project.
Being on the red carpet with a towel in your hair and only a bathrobe on sounds like it is a nightmare. But you don’t need to be woken up, this is no dream. What started as athleisure and style based on comfort has turned into much more. Celebrities are now taking the hygge lifestyle to the extreme, and wearing their bathrobes in public.
And not just to a casual store or local diner, they are wearing them on the red carpet and on the cover of Vogue. Leave it to Rihanna to make a trend official. She not only wore a bath towel in her hair on the cover of Vogue Paris, she actually made it look good. Enviously good.
While at first blush, this trend seems like an Ashton Kutcher-style prank, it is seriously catching on. Many trace its origins to Mariah Carey or Burberry’s 2016 runway show. Wherever it started, it’s clear bath-leisure is now a thing.
Celebrities like Gigi Hadid and Kim Kardashian West have also been donning bath-leisure looks. Pajamas, kimonos, slippers, and more are also incorporated into this trend and has been worn by many celebrities throughout the year.
The only question is are you bold enough to go beyond your mailbox in a bathrobe and hair towel? There is something appealing about being able to rock it in attire normally reserved for the bathroom. Plus, you know you will be extra cozy doing so.
When you come home, you want your space to be relaxing, welcoming, and a reflection of your personal tastes. Your linens should add to this feeling, and be customized with your personal touch. Adding a monogram is a great way to personalize linens while also upping the sophistication of your home.
There are many different types of monograms as well, so select the ones that are best suited to you. Consider placing this monogram on your bed sheets, cover, or pillow shams. These fancy initials are sure to impress your guests, and possibly even your bedmate.
Less common items to monogram are your shower curtain or hand towels, but they are certainly growing in popularity. There’s something special about seeing your monogram on a plush towel on display in your bathroom. It really is one of the easiest ways to personalize a space.
Another much more traditional way to personalize your home is to dig up an old, family heirloom like a quilt. Usually, these types of treasures are passed down generations, so be such to ask around to aunts, uncles, and other extended family members to see if your quilt exists.
If you are lucky enough to have such an item, make sure you protect it and put it on display to add a very personal touch when family comes over. Another easy way to personalize is to screen-print photos onto a fabric surface like a throw pillow. There are even companies that will allow you to completely customize your bed sheets and duvet cover by screen-printing on them.
Photographs have a way of taking you back to a specific moment, a place, a feeling, or memory in time, and are another way to personalize your linens and bedding. Consider using a beautiful landscape with vibrant colors, or a romantic black and white image from your wedding. Read more to find other more ways to personalize your linens and bedding.

There is no better time to skip the shower than today. No, we’re not recommending that you practice poor hygiene, instead, we’re suggesting you relax and enjoy a long, indulgent bath. If you search today’s date, you will see it is the perfect day for doing so.
Long ago, baths were a common practice, but in more recent times as our lives are spent working more hours, fewer people find the time to take baths. Make it a point to utilize that gorgeous tub more often and linger in the bath.
To help you out, we’ve consulted with a retired bath butler who has drawn baths for celebrities and affluent members of society at the world’s top hotels. We’re lucky enough to have him share his best tips for the perfect bath.
According to our bath butler, a bath is an experience and needs to be treated as such. Focus on creating a relaxing environment with dim lighting and lots of aromatic candles. Fill the background with meditative, classical, or slow music that incorporates wind or string instruments. This will add to the Zen-like vibe.
Before you get into the tub, make sure it’s been properly prepped and is completely clean. Use natural lemon and salt to clean your tub, suggests the bath butler. He explains that this will prevent any possible allergic reactions or irritations that are a result of using harsh cleaning products.
Stock up on the essential bath products like plush bathrobes, comfy bath mats, natural loofahs, bath salts, soaps, and scented body wash. Indulge in some treats like fresh fruit and champagne while enjoying your bath, and bring your favorite reading material along too.
Spending time with family and friends is one of the greatest joys of the holiday season. If you are a homeowner with room to spare, it is likely that you will be hosting house guests this time of year. Make them feel extra special and welcomed into your home with these helpful suggestions.
It’s a great idea to think about your own experiences in someone else’s home or at a hotel. What stood out to you in those overwhelming positive stays? Often it is the small details like a handwritten note or a freshly baked cookie that are most memorable. Impress your house guests this holiday by putting in a little extra effort on those small, well-remembered details.
For starters, you want your guests to have a good sleep. To ensure this, purchase quality bed sheets in a high-end fabric like Egyptian cotton, and be sure to match the design and color to the guest bedroom’s theme.
Handwrite a note with essential details for your house guest, like your internet password, local restaurants, stores, places of worship, and any other local spots they might be interested in. If you have any social functions going on when they are staying with you, let them know they are welcomed to join you but shouldn’t feel obligated to do so.
Put together a toiletries basket in the bathroom and fill it with commonly-used bathroom items like a toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, makeup removes, and more. Leave instructions on where to leave dirty clothes and hang bathrobes in their room that they can use to lounge around. Your guests are certain to appreciate your care and attention to detail so they feel welcomed in your home.
If you’re like most women, the spa is a place you wish you could enjoy more often. This is because of how a spa makes you feel: relaxed and calm. This calming spa environment doesn’t occur by accident, it is a space that is intentionally designed with your peace and comfort in mind.
We are going to reveal tips for turning your at-home bathroom into a Zen spa-like oasis. This will not only help put money back into your pocket as you indulge at-home rather than at an expensive spa, but it will also add more value to your home.
None of these tips require hiring any contractors or performing major renovations. You would be surprised what a major impact the small details can have. To begin, start organizing your space. Remove cluttered items from counter tops and look for better storage solutions.
Purchase apothecary-style containers that many spas use, pretty wicker baskets, and glass jars. Place cotton balls, q-tips, and small toiletries inside. Place fluffy hand and bath towels into the baskets for easy access. Look for ones that match your new décor.
Consider replacing your shower head with a massaging or wider one that boosts water pressure for a more indulgent shower. Think about what makes you comfortable and make changes that suit those needs, like replacing an old bathmat with a cushioned, microfiber one. Bring natural elements like plants or aromatic flowers into your bathroom. Place lots of low-light candles around the bathroom to add to this relaxing feel.
