Hottest 2018 Shower Enclosure Design Trends

With a new year just around the corner, the idea of starting fresh takes over us all. What better way to get a fresh new start than with a bathroom renovation?

In any bathroom, the shower and its shower enclosure are the main features that instantly draw the eye when you first walk in. A new shower can completely change the way the room looks.

We all want our new shower renovation to be modern and trendy. With that in mind, we’ve gathered together some of the biggest trends coming up in 2018.

White is Out

For the longest time, it seemed as though using white to brighten the bathroom was a design trend that wouldn’t go away. This coming year, however, textures and patterns are the new big thing.

There are a lot of ways to bring out textures or patterns into your shower enclosure area. Most often it’s done by way of tiling on the floors or the walls or by fitting more modern bathroom wall panels. You can get thousands of different designs by mixing and matching different patterns with varying textures.

No longer will you be limited to simple white designs to give yourself a trendy bathroom.

Take Off the Frames

One of the newest trends is to go for a sleek look by getting rid of the boxy metal frames that we have all seen before. Instead of hanging the glass from those frames, new designs have come out that allow for the glass to be free.

This design choice gives you a cleaner look. The glass melds into the rest of the bathroom instead of being starkly out of place. You won’t have to worry about a thick frame box messing with your chosen aesthetics.

If going with no frames is not an option for your bathroom, then choosing thinner frames can often give you the same kind of look.

Quadrant Enclosures

As one of the most popular choices for a shower enclosure, the quadrant style doesn’t seem to be losing traction just yet. These square shaped enclosures have a rounded corner, giving the shower a shapely curvature to fit into any bathroom. They’re clean and unassuming, allowing them to go well with any design.

Despite having been on the market for a while, they still are a trendy choice for anyone looking to renovate their bathroom. You can’t go wrong with a good quadrant enclosure.

Walk-In Showers

This style of shower enclosure is unique because it doesn’t come with any moving parts. Instead of a door needing to be constantly opened and closed, you’re able to simply walk straight in and get clean.

They’re designed in such a way that you won’t have to worry about water getting all over your bathroom, even without a sealed door. Some people are even choosing to go with an all-wet bathroom design so that they never have to worry about excess water ruining their bathroom.

These walk-in showers mesh with all designs, feeling more part of the room instead of being a separate entity. There’s a certain sense of coziness and interest seeing as having no door at all is still a rather new concept.

Time to Spread Out

Although it may be a little difficult in some cases, one of the biggest growing trends is to give yourself as much spacious room as possible. A lot of people are looking towards their bathroom as more of a comfortable sanctuary to relax in, rather than simply a place to do their business.

Having a larger shower enclosure goes right along with that idea of wanting to live in spacious luxury. It’s a nice feeling to be able to spread out in a bathroom. Bathrooms have had the problem of feeling cramped and uncomfortable for too long.

In 2018, the showers are lining up to give everyone some more livable space.

Pentangle Showers

These showers have an enclosure that is kind of rare to find. This rarity only makes their interesting shape even more beautiful.

Instead of bringing you a normal boxy shape, this shower enclosure has five sides, creating a sort of diamond shape that wedges in perfectly into a corner. It also is a great choice for anyone who wants their shower free-standing as well. The diamond shape brings with it a sense of extravagance to the bathroom.

It can be a whole different experience to step into one of these pentangle showers. Plus, they’re often designed with as little framing as possible. Added on to the extra-roomy size the shape gives you, and this shower is the perfect choice for any trendy family.

Bring In Clear Glass

For the longest time, opaque or textured glass has reigned supreme when it comes to the choice of glass for any shower. In 2018, this is no longer the case.

Instead of a sort of fogged glass look, modest though it may be, these days its the completely clear glass that most people are choosing. And it’s no surprise. That clean and sleek look is something that has been growing in popularity for a while now.

Upgrade to New Technology

In this day and age, technology has begun to be incorporated into all aspects of our daily lives. Bathroom designs are no exception to this.

It sounds strange at first. Technology in the bathroom? It’s not so strange once you learn more about the kinds of things technology can add to a bathroom experience.

One of the most popular upgrades is to install a variety of different jets and water streams to your bathroom. It’s also possible to add in the ability to quickly change the temperature and light level.

This kind of technological innovation lets all of us feel both luxurious and completely in control of how our bathroom functions.
