Top 15 Bathroom Trends of 2023

Planning a bathroom renovation? We have some ideas and inspiration in store for you!

Let’s have a look at our top 15 bathroom trends for 2019.

From tiles to tapware and basins, as well as some terrific modern-style bathroom designs, these trends will bring you one step closer to the bathroom renovations in Sydney that capture your dreams.

1. Industrial Styled Sinks and Vanities

Going side by side with the urban look that the future holds, industrial accents are the little details that will shape trendy new baths. You can get them in gold, matte black, or copper to bring a little more life to the ordinary things.

Due to their trendy nature, the sinks and vanities will bring a youthful look to your dream bathroom and aesthetically please you at every glance.

2. Black

This year, one thing’s for sure: black is still a huge trend, which is coming to your bathroom in multiple ways and different finishes.

If you want to hop on the trend, but feel a little shy, use it only in touches: on accessories, tapware or even on a beautiful basin. If you’re feeling a little braver, use it as a feature on a wall or go for a black vanity. Otherwise, you can simply go for it and embrace the all black look.

You got it, black is a big trend this year but make no mistake, glossy, textured or matte, black is here to stay!

“The spa-inspired bathroom trend has officially returned–back to the spa, that is. These days it’s all about bold, dark, sultry bathroom designs that evoke an indulgent high-end experience.” — Kesha Franklin

3. Marble

No words can describe the perfect fit that marble is for trendy bathrooms. Simplicity mixed with the fragile beauty of the marble will make any bathroom feel like heaven.

It can be utilised in any way imaginable. Whether you cover your whole bathroom with it or only a little part to make it a statement piece, it’ll add that touch of class to your trendy new bathroom and keep it looking fresh year in and year out.

“White and grey marble continue to be strong, popular materials into 2019 for bathrooms and kitchens alike. They are classic and timeless, can go from traditional to modern in terms of aesthetics, and are also great for resale. Man-made materials, such as quartz and porcelain tiles that look like natural stones, are also workhorses from a durability perspective and will continue to be popular in the new year.” — Ariel Okin

4. Statement Basin

Nothing screams “luxury” more than a beautiful basin in your bathroom. Forget about the traditional white inset basins – they now come in all shapes, different colours and various finishes.

If you wish to have an on-trend bath, a statement basin is the way to go. It creates a focal point in your bathroom and really gives it a designer look. Emphasise the focus on your statement basin by playing with contrast. For example a bold black basin on a wooden vanity.

5. Floating Vanities

Floating vanities are an essential piece to the trendy bathroom you are going to create. They are a thing of the future, and they even make your bathroom look bigger!

Whether it is made of wood, marble, or any other material, they will enhance the beauty of your bathroom. If you wish to give your bathroom a modern touch and keep a clear space with little to no clutter, a floating vanity is the right way to go.

6. Beautiful Tapware 

Transform your boring tapware into a thing of beauty!

Forget about chrome as your only choice, you now have so many options in terms of shape, colours and finishes. From copper for an industrial look, ultra-chic matte black, gold for a touch of luxury or even minimalistic white, there is no excuse to be bland.

You can match it to your basin or play with contrast. Either way, tapware is not in the background anymore. They are the next big thing now and are here to stand out.

7. Floor-To-Ceiling Shower Glass

It is no secret that glass showers are visually stimulating in all possible aspects. We suggest you go a little further and get a floor-to-ceiling shower glass to fit the latest bath trends and accentuate the modernity of the bathroom.

Glass showers that don’t go all the way to the ceiling cut the height of the room. With a floor-to-ceiling shower glass, you can make your bathroom look taller and create a little enclosure for the heat while you’re in the bath.

8. Minimalism

We have all heard the saying “less is more” and minimalism or Scandinavian design has been popular for quite some time now. Especially in small rooms and ensuites, a minimalistic approach will help you maximise the space you have and make your now on trend bath look larger and brighter.

Sometimes seen as a little bare, the minimalist design is a modern and clean look with a monochromatic and neutral colour palette, but in no way does minimalistic mean boring! With extra attention to detail, such as the shape of your tile and finishes of your tapware, your minimalistic bathroom will have maximum impact.

9. Concrete

The bathroom trends of 2019are daring and extraordinary. That’s why it is no surprise to find concrete on this list. A seemingly unimpressive material at first, but concrete is the next big thing for modern bathrooms.

Going perfectly with any colour wood and keeping up with the hip and casual look of the future, concrete walls in any bathroom make a bold statement and bring a cool feel. If you are a fan of the urban look and wish to feel the protection and certainty that concrete symbolises, this is the perfect trend to try.

“We’ll see the use of concrete application in sink basins, countertops, floors and walls. It’s really exciting to see a brutalist material mixed with organic elements. Traditionally, concrete has been viewed as cold and non-welcoming, but I’m of the mindset that marrying this utilitarian medium with woods, steel, porcelain and resin is what you guys are going to see surface in 2019 across all design aesthetics.” — Becky Shea

10. Wood​

Wooden designs in bathrooms are not the first idea one would have, but the organic trend has taken over in many aspects of our lives, including our interiors. Natural materials, colours and finishes are perfect for a warm and soothing bathroom.

Following the latest bath trends, you should inject some wooden elements in your bathroom with simple accessories or a beautiful vanity. Want to go further? Why not go for some ultra-realistic wood effect tiles? Practical and beautiful!

11. Statement Art Pieces

This is the perfect finishing touch to a minimalistic bathroom that is missing some character. A colourful piece of art can transform the whole feel of your bath and make it as extraordinary as ever.

If your bathroom has neutral colours, the art piece will become the center of attention and be the little detail that brightens up your trendy bathroom. To top it all off, it will give you something extravagant to look at while you’re in there.

“The year 2019 is all about making an artistic statement; even in the bathroom. A sophisticated piece of fine art will provide your bathroom with a pretty focal point.” — Anne Hepfer

12. Feature Tiles

When renovating a room, choosing the foundation is the first step. For a bathroom, wall patterns and colours are the foundation, which very much dictate its overall look.  Since most of us will renovate our bathrooms every 10 to 15 years, you may think going for plain tiles will help it last, but let us tell you this is not necessarily true.

A patterned tile, a bold finish, a geometric pattern or even a pop of colour can make your bathroom so much more stylish and unique! Also, using multiple types of tiles within your bathroom help to define the different areas of the room and make it feel more spacious. The bathroom trends of 2019, where classic meets new and out-of-the-ordinary screams for attention in style, will prompt you to go for feature tiles to fill your bath time with a trendy joy.

13. Feature Walls

A little pop of colour is always a good idea. In any room, feature walls are the trend that is taking over in 2019. Amongst the simplicity of the utilities, a statement wall can turn your bathroom’s style upside down and refresh your senses anytime you go in there.

By becoming the center of attention, feature walls give the room more depth and add some spice to the simplicity. If you feel like being daring, you should install a tile statement wall that will keep your bath looking modern forever. And not to mention glowing, too.

“Powder rooms have always been a place to add high drama to a small space, but now oversized floral wall prints and pattern-on-pattern are feeling very of-the-moment, particularly in bold, bright colours.” — Carolyn Pressly

14. Geometric Tiles 

Forget the perfectly boring square tile and bring something different to your walls and floors. Geometric tiles of all sorts are having a serious breakthrough this year.  Round, fishtail, teardrop shapes and a lot more are all out to play.

One shape in particular is on top of the trend list this year: the hexagonal tile. In whatever size, colour or finish, the hexagonal tile will keep your bathroom on trend with the modern look you are after.

15. Off-Kilter Tubs

This year’s bathroom trends are far from the ordinary. With all the different shapes and sizes that tubs can be, their placement becomes even more critical to the design of your truly trendy bathroom.

While in the typical bathroom, a tub would be placed parallel to a wall, the new way to do it is anything except that. As you may have seen, modern bathrooms feature tubs that are in the middle of the room or somehow tilted against the wall. So, you should find an alternative placement for your tub that will make the interior of your bathroom dynamic and avant-garde.

And, here we are! These are the 15 bathroom trends of 2019 that everyone will want to have in their homes. Already have a vision for your new bathroom in mind? Try following these trends and you’ll have yourself a bathroom that will stay in style for years to come.
