In 2022 homeowners were largely just happy about being able to finish projects that were delayed due to Covid and supply chain issues. If you’re currently beginning a renovation project for 2023 you may be looking forward to new emerging trends. Looking for the latest bathroom trends to inspire your space? Here are the popular trends in bathroom design for 2023.
Glass showers will be popular
More people will choose glass shower enclosures in 2023 due to them being modern and sleek, as well as creating the illusion of more space. They’re transparent and let natural light in, making a little bathroom seem more spacious. A further advantage is that they are less of a hassle to clean than standard shower curtains and they suit a range of bathroom styles.
Tiling for days
Waterproof and simple to maintain, tiles are ideal for bathrooms. As they are long-lasting and simple to clean, tiles will continue to be a popular choice for bathroom floorings and wall coverings. Tiles come in a wide range of colours, designs, and materials to accommodate any aesthetic preference meaning you can pick a tile that matches your style. We’ve seen plenty of interesting tiles inspired by modern gothic and ancient history, amongst other eras.
Darker interiors are making waves
Even though it’s been a while since the gothic style darkened our doors, this unusual interior design is predicted to gain serious traction in 2023. The trend has been updated with modern comforts to make it suitable for the average home. Modern gothic, which is characterised by intricate detailing, dark yet rich colours, and an emphasis on vertical features, works well with trends like industrial and Scandi noir to produce a look that is both modern and dramatic.
Wall mounted toilets
There are a number of advantages to installing a toilet and basin directly onto a wall, which has led to their increased use in modern interior design. This design choice looks sleek and modern, bringing a lavish feel to the bathroom. Secondly, there are fewer places for dirt and grime to hide, making regular cleaning simpler. Finally, their sleek designs can make even smaller bathrooms feel luxurious.
Heated floors are here to stay
As the temperature outside drops, people start seeking ways to keep toasty indoors. Having a warm and pleasant area to stand or sit in is a major selling point for heated flooring. Heated floors are no longer a luxury feature reserved for the most expensive properties but can be found in a wide range of residential and commercial settings.
Vanities with two basins are a more practical option for couples who wish to share a bathroom. Every morning and evening, both can take their time getting ready without having to crowd around one spot. This can be helpful for preventing fights about who is using up too much mirror space!
When compared to a single basin, vanities are the most aesthetically pleasing option. It’s possible that by 2023, these fixtures could be standard in upscale bathrooms, transforming ordinary spaces into relaxing spas.
Getting creative with bathroom lighting
Though decorative bathroom lighting has been around for a while, 2023 will see even more elaborate and fascinating takes on lighting. You now have more options to play with when designing a lighting scheme for your bathroom. Mixing different types of lighting and developing a more sophisticated lighting system should be high on your list of priorities for your bathroom renovation.
It seems that in 2023 there will be less focus on white bathrooms and minimalism, more emphasis on luxurious features and creative lighting. That said, at Alan Heath & Sons we design your bathroom, your way – so your only limit is your imagination.
