In our modern, post-COVID world, people are prioritizing health and wellness more than ever. Since your bathroom tends to be the hub of your health and hygiene practices, it makes sense that it also tends to take up a large portion of your remodeling budget.
That's why it's important to make informed decisions on the fixtures and appliances you choose for your bathroom by staying up-to-date on current bathroom trends.
4 Upcoming Bathroom Remodel Trends
Nobody wants a bathroom design stuck decades in the past. Take your bathroom makeover to the next level with these four top 2023 bathroom remodel trends:
1. Prioritizing Functionality
More people are realizing looks are not everything when it comes to bathroom remodel trends. In 2023, there will be more focus on balancing appearance with functionality to improve the way you navigate, maintain, and use your bathroom.
Your bathroom should be well-lit throughout the entire space, with multiple layers of lighting to accommodate any task.
For an easy solution and classic feel, consider adding multiple Vasca Single Light Vanity Sconces to help fill every nook with light.
Alternatively, this Fresco Double Wall Sconce can add an industrial feel that many homeowners crave.
If you have an extra-wide vanity, opt for one or two Imperial Triple Wall Sconces to get ready in the morning with ease.
Nothing screams practicality and functionality like choosing fixtures made from low-maintenance materials. For example, this Mia Freestanding Acrylic Soaking Tub from Randolph Morris is super easy to clean and resistant to scratching, dulling, and fading.
Another easy-to-clean choice is the Amelia 71" Acrylic Double-Ended Pedestal Tub. This durable, heavy-duty tub is sure to stand up to years of use without scratching or fading.
A medicine cabinet provides crucial storage space for everything from prescription medications to cough syrup and first aid supplies. This simple 24 Inch Mirrored Medicine Cabinet is perfect for small spaces to keep your countertops tidy and ensure you're looking sharp each morning.
If you need a little more space, go for this sleek 30 Inch Mirrored Medicine Cabinet with double doors that swing outwards for easy access.
And this 48 Inch Recessed Medicine Cabinet offers the most amount of storage and mirror space while lending a uniquely modern feel to any bathroom.
Tub Faucets with Hand Showers
Traditional showers can leave you contorting your body to wash. That's why many people are turning to tub faucets with hand showers to improve the functionality of their bathrooms.
A Clawfoot Tub Faucet With Hand Shower fits on any clawfoot tub and makes bathing small children and pets a breeze.
This sleek Deck Mount Clawfoot Tub Faucet With Hand Shower has a slightly more elegant feel and comes in five corrosion-resistant finishes to choose from.
If you need a little more than just a faucet, opt for a complete Tub Wall Mount Tub Faucet Set, ideal for tubs that still need a drain and supply lines.
Anti-fog mirrors boost the functionality of your bathroom by ensuring you can still use your mirror even after a long, hot shower.
This sleek and modern Lily Lighted Rounded Bathroom Mirror with Anti-Fog comes with a motion-activated LED backlight and a button-operated defogger for easy use.
If a circular mirror doesn't really fit with the rest of your bathroom design, try this versatile, rectangular Lennox Lighted Bathroom Mirror with Anti-Fog.
2. Spa-Like Transformations
One of the fastest-growing bathroom trends is transforming your bathroom into an oasis-like getaway.
To implement this bathroom remodel trend, rethink every facet of your bathroom with rest and relaxation in mind.
The lighting you choose for your bathroom plays a vital role in the overall atmosphere.
For a spa-like escape, install this frosted Horschel Double Light Vanity Sconce. Or, for a more elegant and classic feel, go for this Leith Triple Wall Sconce that is reminiscent of old-timey candlelit fixtures.
The most relaxing part of any bathroom is the tub. That's why splurging on a luxurious bath is one of the top 2023 bathroom remodel trends.
This spacious Brigham Drop-In Air Massage Tub from Randolph Morris features 60 air jets that gently massage every inch of your body to melt away stress and ease tension.
If your bathroom cannot accommodate a drop-in tub, a freestanding soaking tub is a perfect alternative. This unique Kyoto 41 Inch Acrylic Round Japanese Soaking Tub is the perfect focal point for any modern spa-inspired bathroom.
And if you need a little more soaking room, opt for this Airi 59 Inch Acrylic Japanese Soaking Tub instead.
Take your showers to the next level by transforming your current shower into a luxurious steam shower.
This Modern Steam Shower Kit comes with everything you need to create a relaxing shower enclosure.
Alternatively, if you prefer a darker frame to contrast with lighter elements in your bathroom, this Traditional Enclosed Steam Shower is exactly what you need.
Attention to detail is everything when you're trying to create an immersive and relaxing atmosphere. So consider adding luxury accessories that you may come across in a spa, such as towel warmers.
Accessories like this Portable Spa Towel Warmer put the finishing touches on your bathroom transformation. Keep your robes and towels perfectly warmed on this Linear Electric Hardwired Towel Warmer to amplify the relaxing effects of a hot shower.
3. Combining Vintage and Modern Styles
Some of the best bathroom inspiration ideas come from combining vintage and modern styles for a warm and inviting atmosphere, especially with intentional fixture combinations.
Combinations We Love
Combine this modern Philo Acrylic Double Slipper Freestanding Tub with this White 26 Inch Vintage Porcelain Pedestal Sink to create a balanced yet intriguing feel.
Get the best of both worlds when you pair this modern Lily Lighted Oval Bathroom Mirror with this Mila Antique Cast Iron Clawfoot Bathtub.
Or create an entirely unique sink area with this White Lily 72 Inch Modern Console Vanity with Oval Undermount Sinks and Widespread Bathroom Sink Faucet.
4. Showcasing Warmer Hues
If you want to create a laid-back and inviting atmosphere, warm earth tones, like greens and browns, and dark finishes are the way to go.
Look for lighting options that exude warmth and relaxation, and choose lightbulbs that give off a soft white or warm white light. This will ensure that there is adequate task lighting without sacrificing that warm and cozy feel.
You can make any tub feel a bit warmer by strategically choosing a dark finish for the hardware. For example, the details of this Charlotte Cast Iron Slipper Clawfoot Tub really pop when you choose a dark bronze or brass finish.
Even if your walls are cool or light-colored, you can bring a little extra warmth into your bathroom by choosing dark finishes for all of your bathroom accessories.
