Bathroom Trends We Can Expect to See This Year

Kohler Reve Bathtub & SinksIf you’re planning on updating your bathroom soon, make sure you are considering every single detail. This means you need to think about your budget, save a little extra for unexpected repairs and coordinate your cabinetry with your countertops, flooring and backsplashes. Designing a bathroom that is both functional and timeless can be a major challenge, however. See below for some bathroom design trends to get you inspired.

Statement Pieces

You might not consider putting a fancy ottoman or plush chair in the bathroom but it can really add a little something extra. Also, if you have the space, it’s convenient to have a comfortable chair or stool in the bathroom.

Free-Standing Bathtub

A free-standing tub such as a vintage claw-foot bathtub is ideal for those who enjoy their bubble baths. You need to make sure you have adequate space so the room doesn’t look too cluttered.

Patterned Floor Tiles

Encaustic tiles are becoming a very popular theme in today’s bathrooms. Whether you’re looking for organized patterns or tiles consisting of various swirls, there’s plenty of opportunity to make your bathroom pop.

Dark Walls

Regardless of the size of your bathroom, dark walls work wonders. When you paint the cabinets to match, consider contrasting with natural textures.

Throw Rugs

While we adore those fluffy bath mats, throw rugs are beginning to replace them. Using a bathroom rug with intricate designs and unique patterns can turn a dull bathroom into an oasis.

Round Mirrors

Oversized round mirrors are certainly trending and we don’t see them going out of style any time soon. The frame has the most impact as you can choose one that makes the mirror chic or rustic.

Wall-Mounted Faucet

For those of you who have limited space, a faucet that is mounted to the wall is perfect. Weathered brass finishes look gorgeous, especially against white tile.
