The bathroom is undoubtedly one of the most used spaces in any home. Although functionality is important, your bathroom should also look and feel like a sanctuary. Whether you’re planning a complete bathroom renovation, or just looking to make a few updates, it’s important to keep up with the latest trends in bathroom design. If you favor bold and elaborate design elements or prefer something more modern and minimal, you’re sure to find something to suit your style.
Here Are The Most Popular Bathroom Trends for 2023:
Create a space that mimics a luxury spa with the addition of a wet room to your bathroom. A wet room is a space fully built with materials designed to get wet. In a wet room, the main flooring is actually on the same level as the shower floor. The shower section of the wet room has a floor with a sharp slope to aid with water drainage. Wet rooms also allow for more accessibility in the home, as there is no shower curb or bathtub wall to step over. This means those who may be limited in their mobility or use a walker or wheelchair can use it effortlessly. Wet rooms usually include a shower space and freestanding tub within their own glass enclosure. This design is great for smaller bathrooms, as it combines the shower and tub, ensuring that all of your desired amenities fit into one space. Enclosing this space with glass also makes the space feel bigger overall. Additionally, they are less prone to mold and mildew, and are much easier to clean than a traditional framed shower.
Not Quite White Anymore
Over the past few years, the all-white bathroom has been one of the biggest trends. As a result, many interior designers predict that clients are now craving a pop of color in their bathrooms. A few of the most popular options are rich seaside blues, robust olive greens, and warm peachy pinks. The best part about these bold hues is you can use as little or as much as your heart desires. For instance, utilizing a small amount of bold color tile in your shower, or opting for brightly-colored walls, creating a jewel-box effect. If you find those color palettes a little too daring, another bathroom trend is opting for lighter tones such as cream, taupe, or sandy beige.
Inspired By Nature
Choosing more natural materials, such as wood and stone can help to bring the feel of the outdoors inside. In 2023, interior designers predict a shift from synthetic materials like plastic to natural ones like wood, stone, and linen. Natural materials can help your bathroom feel more organic and earthy while still retaining a warm luxurious feel. They’re also incredibly versatile, with the ability to be incorporated into more traditional or contemporary designs. A few ways to incorporate natural materials into your dream bathroom? Textured, and imperfect tiles in the shower and bath, stone sinks, and live edge wood elements.
Frameless Glass Showers
One of the biggest bathroom trends for 2023 is the addition (or upgrade) of a frameless glass shower. Frameless glass showers do not have a metal frame. Instead, glass panels are held in place by clips or hinges. Opting for a frameless glass shower allows you to completely personalize your shower. They’re also beneficial if you’re looking to draw attention to certain design elements, such as tile, hardware, or any other features. The addition of frameless glass means that the whole room space is visible, creating an illusion of a much bigger bathroom and allowing you and others to take in the full aesthetic of the design. Another added bonus? They also require less upkeep and deep cleaning compared to a framed shower. Curious?

Warm Metallic Hardware
Although silver and black bathroom hardware have proved to be popular over the past few years, warmer metals may begin to have a moment in 2023. Soft metallics like champagne gold, antique brass, and brushed bronze can add a bit of warming contrast to the starkness of a tiled bathroom. Adding warmer metallic hardware can also pair nicely with both trendy bold colors as well as inviting neutral tones. Incorporate these warmer hues on faucets, and shower heads, but don’t forget drawer pulls and handles mirrors and door knobs for a cohesive look. Having difficulty deciding on a color for your hardware? You’re in luck! Mixed metal looks are also on the rise.
