If you need some inspiration for your next project, here are some of the latest bathroom design trends.

This year has been all about new and creative designs for our shared spaces. Most people would not call their bathroom “trendy” because it is simpler to focus on function than design. But that does not mean you cannot redecorate your bathroom to be both functional and aesthetically pleasing. As hygiene continues to be at the forefront of everyone’s mind, particularly in high-traffic areas like bathrooms, you can expect interiors that prioritize easy-to-clean surfaces and antimicrobial fixtures. If you need some inspiration for your next project, here are some of the latest bathroom design trends.

Back to Black

Gray has been one of the more popular bathroom design colors the past few years, but now black accents are taking over. The darker bathroom color palettes channel a moodier style but keeping things modern by only using black as an accent. Black accents are most popular on vanities, mirrors, light fixtures, drawer handles, and towel bars.

Unique Tile Shapes

Using tiles in the bathroom is nothing new. But lately, the trend has shifted from the classic subway tile to more unique shapes and designs. Shapes like hexagons, diamond, fish scale, or chevron patterns in new colors and textures are all the rage in modern bathroom designs. Tile is not just reserved for bathtub or shower anymore. Unique tiles are great in backsplashes, accent nooks, and sometimes even in an accent piece on the ceiling or wall.

Smart Bathrooms

Smart home appliances are all the rage right now, and they have even found their way into the bathroom. There have been many advances in smart toilets, such as self-closing lids, touch-free flushing, and even self-cleaning technology. But the tech doesn’t stop at the toilet! Now we have seen things like smart showers, mini-fridges, and automatic sinks. Voice-activated features for lighting and temperature, smart mirrors that talk, and heated tile floors are just a few of the other innovative trends on the rise today.

Big Bathtubs

In the past year, we all have been looking for better ways to rest and relax at home. As a result, soaking tubs have become a top bathroom feature for the year ahead. The bigger the bathtub, the more space you have to relax and recharge. They are convenient, easily accessible for most mobility levels, and can be as luxurious as you want with various options for the showerhead.

Floating Vanities

Wall-mounted bathroom vanities come in various configurations, from a complete unit with a countertop, sink, and storage base to partial sets and entirely separate pieces. Floating vanities give a contemporary and modern feel to any bathroom without requiring extensive remodeling.
