The trend towards minimalism has been a staple of interior design for years now, but this year it’s making its way into bathrooms. The bathroom is a place where we can escape from the pressures of the outside world. The minimalist trend is all about clean lines, simple shapes and the use of materials that convey quality. The same principles apply to bathrooms as they do anywhere else in a home: less is more. This means that designers are focusing on functionality and simplicity in their bathroom designs, rather than adding extra features for the sake of it.
The use of materials like marble and stone is still popular but there’s also a focus on using natural materials like wood or stone to make bathrooms feel more homely and welcoming.
The bathroom has always been a place for relaxation and rejuvenation. It’s where we go to get away from the stresses of life, so it makes sense that designers are focusing on creating bathrooms that provide this type of sanctuary. You can see this in the growing popularity of soft muted tones, freestanding soaker tubs, towel warmers, rain showerheads and bidets.
We’re also seeing designers using less colour in their bathroom designs, instead focusing on clean lines and minimalist styling to create bathrooms that feel fresh and modern. Designers are using more neutral tones in bathrooms, with black, white and grey being some of the most popular choices. This allows you to keep your bathroom looking stylish without needing to update it every year or two.
We’re also seeing a rise in the use of glass, especially in bathrooms that have floor-to-ceiling windows to create an illusion of space and light. Another trend we're seeing is the use of mirrors - either as part of the design or as standalone pieces. This helps make small spaces feel bigger by reflecting light and making them look more spacious.
Last trend of 2023 is black and gold fixtures. Black is a timeless colour and it can be used to create a sleek and modern look. It’s especially popular in bathrooms because the dark colour works well with neutral tones. Gold fixtures have been popular for the last few years, but they’re becoming even more popular as people are looking for ways to update their bathroom without spending too much money. We’re seeing a rise in the use of black and gold fixtures in bathrooms, with some people even going as far as using them throughout their entire home. This trend is a great way to make your bathroom look luxurious without being too dramatic or over-the-top.
