4 Bathroom Design Trends to Follow This Year

For the latest bathroom trends, read our post, ‘2023 Bathroom Design Trends You’ll Want to Follow‘.

Bathrooms are no longer designed with only utility in mind. Today, we spend longer than ever before in our bathrooms, which in turn, has prompted bathroom design to evolve in the process. In fact, today, many bathrooms are designed to be luxurious sanctuaries rather than mundane spaces.

As the head of purchasing at Ross’s Discount Home Centre, I am always looking for the latest bathroom trends. After all, I need to ensure that we stock bathroom products that are always on trend.

So today, I will list some of the biggest bathroom trends in 2018. I’ll also throw in a few bathroom product recommendations that you can use to create these trends.

If you’re looking to renovate your bathroom this year, stick to one of these trends, and you can’t go wrong.

1. Statement vanities

Vanities have always been integral to bathrooms in Perth, but there’s never been as much focus on statement vanities as in 2018. Bold and gorgeous vanities with single and double bowls are definitely in. Modern vanities come in various shapes, sizes, designs and finish options, leaving you spoilt for choice.

At Ross’s Discount Home Centre, we offer numerous statement vanities that make the perfect choice. Please take a look at our Belford Vanity Unit, which is a floating statement vanity in a natural finish option. Also, consider our Maddison Vanity, an elegant statement vanity with double bowls. Not only do these statement vanities look gorgeous, but they also offer plenty of valuable storage space.

2. Textured walls

Gone are the days when people would use simple textures on their bathroom walls. This year, textured walls are in. While some use feature tiles to create textured walls, others use mosaic tiles.

Adding textured walls to your bathroom is a great way to make it look trendy. Consider us at Ross’s Discount Home Centre for all your bathroom tiles needs. Our wall tiles come with irregular textures, allowing you to create a gorgeous look in your bathroom.

3. Accessorise your space


One of the hottest bathroom trends of 2018 is accessorising the space. Designer bathrooms of 2018 make good use of glass shelves, robe hooks, towel rails and other bathroom accessories.

This is probably my favourite bathroom design trend of 2018. That’s because accessories can help make a bathroom look much more attractive, and they also make a space more functional.

If you’d like to adopt this trend, you’ll find all the accessories you need for bathrooms in Perth at our store. I’d like to recommend our Round 500mm Glass Shelf, our Square Robe Hook and our Square Toothbrush Holder. These bathroom accessories may be small products but are designed to completely transform your space.

4. Return of coloured bathrooms

Contemporary Bathroom

White may have been the colour of choice for bathrooms in Perth in the past. However, modern bathrooms of today are embracing the use of colours. While tiles and vanities add colour to bathrooms, even tapware is available in multiple colours today.

You can easily add a splash of colour to your bathroom with the help of floor tiles, wall tiles or vanities. And check out our collection of Matte Black tapware here at Ross’s Discount Home Centre. Matte black is hot, hot, hot in bathrooms this year. We offer a complete set of basin mixers, shower mixers, shower heads, hand-held shower heads, and bath tapware in matte black. By buying products for your bathrooms in Perth from us, you’ll find it easy to stay on trend!


Modern bathrooms have come a long way from what they once used to be – both in terms of looks as well as functionality. Some of the hottest bathroom design trends in 2018 include using statement vanities, using textured walls, accessorising bathroom spaces and injecting splashes of colour into a bathroom.

If you’re renovating your bathroom this year, do yourself a favour and stick to these trends. And, for bathroom products in Perth, shop nowhere else but Ross’s Discount Home Centre. You can purchase everything you need from our showroom in Guildford or our online store.
