Just because every home needs them doesn’t mean bathrooms have to follow a practical design. Just the opposite: I believe we should take advantage of the bathrooms to elevate the whole living experience of a home. Consider the bathroom your own personal oasis, and you’ll understand me when I say they’re a crucial part of your home. Get an idea or two from my favorite luxury bathroom trends below and find some inspiration for your own bathroom upgrade.
Elevate your bathrooms using these trends
Too often, bathrooms are a colorless afterthought. That can all be changed through a striking color scheme. This helps piece together the look and feel you want in your private sanctuary. Try a deep blue sink or maybe a forest green accent wall gilded with gold mirrors. Be adventurous and go for the color drenching trend for a palpable vibrancy. Another fun way to introduce color is by picking from the color wheel, choosing a pair like blue and orange for complementary colors, or a monochromatic scheme in shades of blue for a sense of harmony and serenity. Neutral bathrooms never go out of style, so if you’re less adventurous, I recommend going with gray and white or beige and brown for a classic look.
Add some flavor to an oft-overlooked space in your house by utilizing vintage design elements. I love to bring a certain dashing sensibility to a restroom through elegant, charming vintage pieces. A chandelier will bring sheer elegance to any space and pairs well with cove molding. I find that adding something as simple as shower curtain rings for your freestanding clawfoot tub creates an effortless vintage aesthetic.
Considering showering, bathing, and hand-washing are all things that occur in bathrooms, it makes perfect sense that installing a deluxe rain shower, a bathtub with jacuzzi capabilities, or water-pressure controlled faucets dramatically enhances your experience.
Perfect tranquil lighting
Bathrooms are places that thrive on peaceful, comfortable ambiances. What better way to achieve that than with soft, delicate lighting? If you’re going with a vintage theme, add this Broche five-light bath light over your vanity for a touch of glamor. Pair it with this ceiling Broche light for continuity.
Contemporary bathrooms boast clean lines and geometric patterns and are ever-increasing in popularity. This three-light bath vanity will look lovely next to your rectangular bathtub. Chic and uncomplicated, this three-light bath sconce effortlessly modernizes any bathroom.
Bring some equally refined and earthy vibes to your bathroom using deep, rich stone or opulent marble for counter space, flooring, or wall decor. Natural stone and timber never go out of style when it comes to home decor. Incorporate a timber bathroom vanity or bathtub to make a statement.
Feel like you’re on the top of the world with a spacious, eye-catching bath. A rock crystal bathtub is eye-catching, gorgeous, and creates some serious wow factor. This onyx vessel sink will surely turn some heads and add a spa-like feel to your bathroom.
Textured, organic materials
With technology taking over every aspect of our lives, we all need some natural elements to bring us back to earth. In my experience, exposed wood, brick, and the previously mentioned stone can make your bathroom jump from a dull must-have space to an atmospheric, peaceful room all on its own. A few natural accents can transform a cold and impersonal space to a warm and welcoming one.
The future is now
What’s the point of having smart home elements if your bathroom is still living in the last century? Luxurious water control, pleasing lighting, and more are options for a bathroom of the future. My clients and I can agree that smart technology features make our lives easier, and they are not limited to speaker systems and kitchen appliances.
