Trend #1. Oversized Colorful Tiles

Grey may have been one of the most popular styles in previous years for bathroom remodeling projects, however, that’s all about to change. We’re moving on to bolder, warmer styles this season. Grey is great, but color is better! In our Top Trends for Bathrooms article we stated that warmer tones were starting to pick up and that it would continue to gain popularity. Well guess what? Their time is now! That’s right, warmer tones are here. We saw so many grey bathrooms in the past years, but expect to see an increase in warmer toned bathrooms. This trend is most popular in vanities, flooring and wall tiles! Since some homeowners may be hesitant when it comes to adding these warm tones to back their homes, grey may continue to be a top choice for those looking to stray away from a classic white color.

Trend #2. Free Standing Tubs

Free standing tubs are perfect for relaxation and long soaks. Although free standing tubs are not a new trend, as we have seen them starting to become more popular in the last couple years, but this year we’re predicting them to rise up! Not only are free standing tubs more comfortable, but they give bathrooms the modern and sleek design they deserve. Since free standing tubs stand alone, they create the perfect focal point in your bathroom because they catch your eyes immediately.

Trend #3. Bathrooms of the Future

Last year we talked about smart toilets, but this year the whole bathroom is getting a high-tech upgrade. In previous articles we discussed high-tech toilets increasing popularity as a trend lead by Japan. The toilets saw things like seat warmers, automatic lid openers, adjustable air dryers, built-in deodorizers and more. If you were impressed with that technology, just wait till you hear about the rest of the bathroom. In 2024, bathrooms will see smart showers, mini fridges, and automatic sinks. We recently remodeled a home that allowed for the homeowner to set his shower to start automatically. This means by the time he got home from work, his shower was hot and ready! Another more common trend is the built-in blue tooth speaker system. Now you can easily jam out or wind down with the sounds of your shower. Voice activated features for lighting and temperature, smart mirrors that talk to you, and increased TV installments are just a few of the other fun trends we’ve seen, but the possibilities are endless. Modern day bathrooms are transforming into personalized day spas, and these technologies make the experience more relaxing and convenient than ever before.

Trend #4. Two Heads Are Better Than One

Waiting for your significant other to finish showering is a thing of the past! Over the past couple of years, we have seen showers become bigger and bigger but this year we are predicting that these big showers will receive showerheads for two. We can see this in a couple different ways from twin showerheads to one showerhead and one hand held shower head. Not only are double showerheads just nice to have but it also adds luxury value to your home!

Trend #5. Tile Patterns & Shapes That You Will Love

We have already seen how technology is allowing manufacturers to create all sorts of designs using basic tiles, but now they are going beyond the colors and graphics to change the traditional tile shape into something more interesting.

We are seeing a resurgence of the once beloved tiles of decades past, plus a few new designs. No longer are we content with just a subway tile or a large format tile on the wall.  We have lots of tile shapes to choose from once again.  So, look for new and improved hexagon, arabesque, diamond, Moroccan fish scales, or chevron patterns in new colors & textures.  These eye-catching shapes will not just grace the floor either; they will also be used as bathroom backsplashes, on shower walls, and possibly ceiling accents to create the bold accents we so desire.

If you are looking for a safe way of livening up your bathroom, this is one of the best trends to try out in 2024.

Commonly seen as ‘His & Hers’ niches or shaving niches, these compartments provide dedicated spaces for storing shower essentials, such as shampoos, conditioners, body washes, and shaving supplies. This trend facilitates organization and convenience, allowing individuals to access their preferred products easily while minimizing clutter and enhancing the overall shower experience.

Multiple niches in showers underscores a meticulous approach to bathroom functionality, providing a solution to the storage challenges often encountered in shower spaces.

Whether incorporated in furniture, flooring, wall treatments, or decor, these natural elements add character, tactile appeal, and a touch of earthiness to living spaces.

Incorporating wallpaper or tile behind vanities has revolutionized bathroom design, transforming these spaces into visually captivating and stylish areas.

Rather than restricting patterns or intricate designs to entire walls, designers and homeowners make a statement by focusing on the area behind the vanity. This approach allows for introducing bold and expressive wallpaper patterns or intricate tile designs that serve as striking backdrops. Whether a vibrant floral wallpaper or a mosaic of colorful tiles, this trend brings depth, texture, and a touch of personality to the bathroom, creating an eye-catching feature while highlighting the vanity area.
