Are you ready to breathe new life into your home? While the bathroom might not be the first place you think of when considering new design trends, this often-overlooked area is the perfect place to have some fun and show off your personal style.
If a bathroom remodel has been on your radar, you’ll be glad to know that many exciting ways to upgrade your space. Here’s a look at some of this year’s hottest bathroom trends.
1. Spa-Like Features
You don’t have to book a day at the spa to enjoy a truly relaxing experience. Give your bathroom a spa-like feel with features like euro-style shower doors, luxurious fixtures, heated floors, and tech-forward elements like touchless faucets and wall-mounted digital interfaces.
Adding natural elements like houseplants and pampas grass will help relieve stress and anxiety and allow you to feel more connected to nature. Not only will the right selection of plants create a focal point in your bathroom, but they can also help improve the air quality in your home.
2. Scenic Murals
The days of clinical, all-white bathrooms have passed. Even if you prefer modern bathrooms with clean lines, there’s plenty of room for a bold statement on one wall or an alcove. A beautiful mural featuring plenty of color and intricate designs are just what you need to double down on the spa-like feel of your new space.
Choosing a forest or landscape mural can give smaller bathrooms a large, open feel. Other popular options include beach or sunset images, geometric designs, and wallpaper that creates a faux finish.
3. Statement Marble
If murals aren’t your thing, you may choose to make a statement with a gorgeous slab of marble instead. You’ll often see gray and white shades of marble incorporated into high end, luxury bathrooms. Choosing contrasting materials can add both tactile and visual texture to the room, creating a feeling of opulence.
One of the great things about marble is that there are so many ways to incorporate it into your bathroom remodel. Whether you install marble floors, place it in your shower, behind your sink, or on the walls, it will go a long way towards elevating your space.
4. Organic Style
Warmer, neutral designs featuring natural materials are topping homeowners’ wish lists this year. Many bathroom remodels are integrating designs that maximize natural light and incorporate wood, stone, and textured tiles.
Neutral tones are a keystone of organic style. Instead of traditional white or gray, these bathrooms are often decorated in shades like beige, terracotta, and tan. While you may find hues like watery blues and earthy greens, they’re likely to be toned down rather than used as a bold, contrasting color.
5. Wet Rooms
Extra large walk-in showers and wet rooms are another up-and-coming trend in modern bathroom design. Matching these large enclosures with colorful patterned tiles can create a stunning focal point in your bathroom space.
It should be noted that the trend towards larger showers doesn’t necessarily mean the death of the bath. While showers are often preferred for those with busy lifestyles, the luxury of a freestanding bath still has a timeless appeal.
6. Bathroom Furniture
Adding furniture to a bathroom space may seem a bit odd at first, but it’s actually one of this year’s hottest design trends. Benches and vanity stools covered with soft fabric provide a luxurious decorative touch to your bathroom.
It’s also more common to see tub-side tables, luxurious trays for holding personal care products, and even vanities crafted from vintage dressers. When selecting pieces of furniture for your bathroom space, the sky really is the limit.
7. Mixing Old with New
When it comes to bathroom design, sometimes opposites attract! More homeowners are taking risks with their décor and pairing traditional or vintage styles with modern design. Try pairing a traditional tub with a sleek, modern faucet or vintage faucets with a trendy, modern sink.
You may also lean towards classic design when choosing your tile or marble but mix in mid-century inspired lighting, colorful millwork, or a beautiful vintage tub.
8. Vibrant Textiles and Fabrics
If you want to add some bold colors to your bathroom, you’re not just limited to your cabinets and walls. Today, we’re seeing many more brightly colored textiles adding personality and warmth to the bathroom space. A colorful vintage rug, intricate window treatments, or beautiful statement towels may be exactly what your bathroom needs.
Beautiful Bathrooms Designed for Modern Life
Each of these trends can help you create a beautiful bathroom space designed for modern life. As you plan your bathroom renovation, remember that a few personal touches can go a long way towards adding style and elegance to the space. Whether you’re looking to make a big, bold statement or create a relaxing, spa-like experience, it’s easy turn your bathroom into one of the most-loved rooms in your home.
