When choosing a design of premises intended for hygienic procedures, one should take into account not only safety and functionality. The leading bathroom design trends of 2023 have to do with the ideas for introducing the elements that enhance the stylishness and comfort of this premise.
The white shade that prevailed in the interior of small and mid-sized bathrooms for many years remains the leading trend of 2023. Such a design solution implies the usage of snow-white tiles, furniture, and rugs.
The natural beige tone also remains relevant. Aristocratic softened shades of gray (patinated bronze, fog, samovar silver) are also still popular. Besides, a rich brown and green palette is still fashionable and can create an impression of the natural texture.
Among the favorites of the 2023 season, one can also mention the deep blue and Bordeaux colors. Caramel and mustard-yellow tones are used in the design of various details.
For walls and flooring, designers prefer tiles, which are still prevailing over other types of finishes.
Analyzing new trends in the use of tiles, it can be noted that there will be a wide variety of tile shapes, textures, and colors in 2023.
The height of fashion is now a square one-color finish. It looks particularly impressive when using contrast grout. It is increasingly common to finish not only walls but also other surfaces with squares, which gives integrity to an interior.
Another expressive trend is bright tiles decorated with patchwork. Geometric and floral patterns also don’t lose their relevance. Among the fashionable types of decoration, the surfaces imitating aristocratic light marble with expressive veins and noble pinkish or peach granite should be noted.
Terrazzo tiles bringing a sense of luxury to an interior also remain in demand. They are usually applied fragmentally by combining them with a calm one-color finish.
Zellige tiles characterized by an elegant imitation of natural textures can satisfy the demand for naturalness. Their perfect shape allows one to create even surfaces.
The mysteriousness of the mosaic also remains fashionable. Ready-made panels can serve as a convenient option in this regard. If necessary, one can purchase a mosaic not only with an abstract pattern but also with a certain themed focus.
There is a tendency to abandon miniature cabinet mirrors even in small bathrooms. Mirrors will acquire a special significance in many interiors in 2023.
Designers increasingly prefer a large mirror attached independently of furniture. It becomes an expressive detail that attracts attention. Moreover, it visually enlarges the space.
Various smart mirrors are becoming widespread. They can be equipped with heating that protects the surface from fogging up. There are mirrors with a built-in audio system, a clock, and a backlight.
One can also take advantage of a special moisture-resistant mirror with a touch screen. It functions similarly to a tablet and features Internet, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and games.
Fittings and Accessories
Besides chrome and nickel bathroom fittings, there is an increasing interest in brass, gold-plated, bronze, and copper items. Accessories and various fittings of such a warm shade look especially in place in an interior fully or partly made in the classical style.
The fashion for black fittings still remains, as they fit not only into a dark interior. On light surfaces, such charcoal accents also look modern and refined.
A Cozy Interior
One of the leading innovations of 2023 in bathroom design is the idea of abandoning monochrome, restrained, and cold-feeling solutions.
Designers are increasingly willing to make the space of even a miniature bathroom cozier and resembling a living room. Photographs and paintings help to accomplish this task. In such interiors, wicker baskets are used to store the necessary items, and comfortable padded stools are installed.
Comfortable shower cabins have already been firmly incorporated into a bathroom space. There are options with a more smart arrangement of shower equipment, which will not look bulky.
The installment of cabins with transparent walls made of durable tempered glass will become a trend in 2023. Such a design will even visually enlarge the space.
There is a strong tendency to equip bathrooms with floating vanities and cabinets. Thanks to the wall mounting, the space below is freed up.
Cleaning becomes more convenient, and the feeling of clutter and crowding disappears. One can arrange such pieces of furniture horizontally on two levels. Closed storage places allow one to easily maintain order and cleanliness.
Natural wood is considered an unsuitable finishing material in high humidity conditions. But its natural texture remains attractive, and the demand for such a design option always remains high.
Manufacturers take into account consumers’ wishes and offer wooden products with a reliable moisture-resistant coating. One can buy not only cabinets and shelves but also finishes for walls, floors, as well as spaces under a sink and a bathtub. Of course, if desired, it is not difficult to make use of tiles imitating a wood texture.
A bold and original trend in a limited space is the vertical planting of greenery on one of the end walls. Such an element looks particularly impressive when coupled with internal illumination.
If it is not possible to arrange a vivid wall, one can put a single large plant in a colorful pot on the floor. Wall planters with green plantings will also bring an element of coziness. If it is not possible to find shade-tolerant plants that are resistant to high humidity, their artificial analogs can be used.
Finishing elements with a ribbed surface become the center of any arrangement. Not only relief tiles are used in a bathroom, but carved cabinet facades also look great there.
One can use opaque corrugated glass for a shower cabin. Low reliefs on the ceiling are capable of creating a luxury atmosphere. Besides, they often perform a zoning function.
In a room without windows, sufficient lighting plays a significant role. Commonplace enclosed light fixtures have long since lost their relevance.
Lamp brackets with gold-plated or brass elements are widely applied now. As for a ceiling lamp, it is advisable to select a rounded one. Tinted, embossed, or transparent glass is particularly relevant. Lamps with the intensity and even light shade controller are now popular.
Smart mirrors and lamps prevail among the current bathroom design trends expected in 2023. Technical innovations will be applied even more and more widely.
