Designing your ideal home can be an overwhelming process. Sometimes, it is hard to know where to even start. Although it probably isn’t the first area you think of when you begin the design process, the bathroom is actually a great space to start designing. For most people, the bathroom is where you get ready to take on the day. A well designed bathroom is made up of many elements like lighting, spacing, and various materials that contribute to the overall design aesthetic. To help you gain some inspiration as you design your bathroom, we’ve gathered some of the latest trends in bathroom design.

Unique Lighting

Lighting can make or break even the most well designed room. The importance of lighting is often overlooked when it comes to the bathroom. Unique and stylish lighting is a key factor in creating the atmosphere you want in any room while still offering the functionality you need. Whether you make a statement through unique shapes, soft lighting, or even a glamorous chandelier, have fun with your bathroom lighting to give the room the personality you want.


Marble is trending in all aspects of home design, and the bathroom is no exception. Incorporating marble into your bathroom creates dimension and adds a luxurious feel to the space. Marble can be incorporated into a variety of different styles. Because it is such a versatile material, you can find multiple examples of marble being used in bathrooms. HGTV created a list of the many ways to incorporate marble into your bathroom that you can use as an additional reference for using this versatile material.

Bright Accents

Don’t be afraid to add a pop of color to your bathroom! There are a variety of ways to add a splash of color to your room without going color crazy. Brightly hued tiles can be used in your backsplash, on the floor, or as part of the shower design. Another way to add color is to use wallpaper with designs such as bold patterns, classic prints, or playful florals. You can even incorporate color by painting the vanity or cabinets.

Floating Vanities

Floating vanities have recently been rising in popularity due to their sleek and sophisticated appearance. These types of vanities provide a visual break needed to take the weight away from your cabinetry. Having a floating vanity in your bathroom creates an illusion of space because of the light that can now pass underneath it. Additionally, floating vanities can make your room appear less cluttered and more simple.

Mirrors, Mirrors, Mirrors

In addition to the obvious functionality of mirrors, they can add more style to your room, make the space feel larger, and make your bathroom feel brighter. Different styles of mirrors provide so many ways to add decorative, yet functional, design elements to the room. Backlit mirrors provide additional light and give the illusion of a floating mirror while circle-shaped mirrors add a feeling of softness and serenity to the space. Large, frameless mirrors can make your home bathroom feel like you are relaxing at the hotel spa.
