Bathroom designs are always evolving, but it can be hard to keep up with all the different styles. What kind of bathroom should you use? Should you go for something traditional, or try something more modern? We’re here to help!
We’ve put together a list of the best bathroom design trends to use in your own property. You can choose one that suits your style, or mix and match them to create a look that’s all your own.
Subway tile is a fabulous option for your bathroom. It’s a timeless design and it’s also very easy to clean, which makes it great for your shower (or even your bath). This makes it ideal if you have kids – they can splash around while you rest assured that the tiles are easy to keep clean.
If you’re looking to go with the trend of a more contemporary look, subway tiling can still be included in your bathroom design. If that’s not what you’re going for, it can also fit in with a classic aesthetic and create an interesting contrast.
It’s also easier than ever before to incorporate subway tile into your bathroom renovation project. Subway tile is generally easier to work with than other types of tiling and many home improvement stores now also sell peel-and-stick subway tile options which makes installation even simpler!
Vintage bathroom fixtures
For a vintage-inspired bathroom, there is no longer any need to pay for an antique, especially if it has been used in someone else’s home. These days, you can get a modern look and still have a vintage style by buying new vintage bathroom fixtures that are readily available at most home design stores in your area. Some of these new fixtures are more attractive than the originals because they are more decorative and made with materials that do not need periodic polishing. The styles range from hammered copper tubs to clawfoot bathtubs and pedestal sinks. Whatever style you choose will be perfect for your remodel because they come in different colors and materials such as porcelain, ceramic, stainless steel, or even wood.
Glass shower doors
Glass shower doors are a great way to let light in while keeping your bathroom feeling spacious. In addition, glass is easy to clean and can be clear, frosted, etched, curved, or straight. There are several different types of glass shower walls and enclosures you can choose from.
- Frameless showers often look more modern and tend to give a room the illusion of a larger space.
- Glass with a texture often hides water spots better than smooth glass surfaces.
- Curved shapes can give a bathroom an elegant feel.
- Single-pane showers are less expensive than multiple-paneled versions, but multiple panels offer more flexibility if you want some privacy without sacrificing light.
Floating vanities are a fantastic way to conserve space and unify the design of your bathroom. Rather than being installed on the floor, the bathroom vanity is mounted on a wall, which makes them look much more modern. Without any nooks or crannies beneath the sink, they’re also easy to clean and maintain. You can have floating vanities custom built in any color you like—or look out for one that coordinates with other furnishings in your restroom.
Wallpaper can be an easy way to add some personality and style to your bathroom, but it’s not the right solution for every bathroom.
The first thing you’ll need to decide is how much of your wall you want to cover in wallpaper. If you only want to add an accent wall, then you won’t need as much wallpaper as if you want to cover all four walls of the room. Unless there is a reason why you absolutely must have all-over wallpaper, covering smaller portions of a wall will give your bathroom just the right amount of detail without overwhelming the space.
A freestanding tub is always a winner in my book. There are so many reasons why we love these pieces of bathroom furniture. These deep and wide bathtubs can be made out of materials like cast iron, copper, or stone, to name just a few options. Plus there are all sorts of designs available—you could have one that looks like a clawfoot and sits on four sturdy legs; you could get an egg-shaped bathtub that sits at floor level, or you could go with something entirely different altogether. The point is, you’ve got lots of options!
Waterfall faucets are another of the more recent additions to the bathroom design industry. This style of faucet is mounted on the wall and has no sink deck, with the water flowing directly into the basin. It’s a beautiful, modern look that can be used in any bathroom design and installed in any sink or bathtub.
If you’re considering this trend for your bathroom remodel, keep in mind that it will require a few key changes to your plumbing setup. Because there is no spout or deck, this type of faucet attaches directly to the spigot and drain connector. And because it’s mounted on the wall instead of hanging from above, you’ll need to drill holes into your drywall for installation (although it can be attached directly to the existing tile).
Seamless sinks and countertops
Seamless sinks and countertops that look like they’re made from one piece are all the rage. In fact, they’re so popular you can find this style in a range of materials. Whether your taste runs high-end, minimalist, or rustic chic, there’s a seamless sink and countertop combo to fit the bill. If you want to make a statement in your bathroom, consider a seamless option for your sink and countertop area.
Go for the gold!
Gold is having a major moment in interior design right now—and it’s not hard to see why. The color is luxurious and opulent, making it perfect for bathrooms that need some extra shine. Try adding gold accents like a gold-plated sink faucet or even just a candle holder with a golden hue. If you have the budget for it, consider installing gold-accented tiles as well. It’s sure to wow guests!
