&noscript=1 /> 2018 Bathroom Tile Trends

The National Kitchen and Bathroom Association recently released its “2018 Design Trends Study” which found that “transitional and contemporary styling is extremely popular in today’s bathrooms, reflective of an overarching trend that’s seeing traditional styles fade in popularity after years of dominance among homeowners” (Kitchen and Bath Design News, 4/18 issue pg. 12).  This study was based on more than 800 industry professionals which include designers, builders, architects, and dealers.

We find this piece of information very interesting and also helpful for us as we introduce brand-new designs to our in-stock collection, Artisan Stone Tile and our made-to-order line, StoneImpressions.  We noticed this shift from traditional to transitional after the recent collaborations we did with well-known bloggers and interior designers.

Kirsten Grove of Simply Grove used the Alston Tribeca pattern for the floor of her master bathroom.  In her renovation, she wanted to transform her traditional Boise master bath into a mid-century, modern space.  To do so she used our Alston Hex tile on the floor to create this look.

We also collaborated with the talented interior designer and blogger, Jacquelyn Clark of Lark and Linen on her bathroom renovation.  The Champan pattern was featured as the floor tile and we think it’s the perfect transitional tile that teeters on the edge of classic and contemporary.

Etch Design group in Austin, TX designed this stunning powder room using the bright and symmetrical Hayden tile.  The combination of gold fixtures with the bold blue tile creates the perfect modern bathroom.

The NKBA also finds that “freestanding tubs continue to be a favorite, with 87% of pros reporting their popularity” (Kitchen and Bath Design News, 4/18 issue).
