Want a first-hand look at the latest bathroom trends? We’ll show you the top six bathroom trends, some of the best new fixtures, and how you can use them in your bathroom.

1. Freestanding Tubs

No longer a wallflower – freestanding tubs take center stage! New composite technologies have created tub shells that are stronger, more fluid and slip-resistant when wet – so cool! Almost every bath company is adding freestanding tubs to their product lines. There are sculptural shapes abound to choose from. Each designed to create a perfect centerpiece for your bathroom.

Freestanding tubs are popular across many different bathroom styles, be that contemporary, industrial or transitional

2. Wall-mounted and Curving Bathroom Vanities

Visually lighter and practical, wall-mounted vanities continue to be a popular bathroom trend. New ceramic and casting technologies have made both basin and countertop profiles thinner and lighter. Clean minimal rectilinear designs are still very popular and new gentle curving profiles round out your options. Wood finishes on vanity cabinets and matching mirror frames add a nice warm touch.

3. Marble Finishes

Classic and elegant, marble finishes give the latest bathroom designs a luxurious look and feel. To avoid the maintenance of real marble, opt for marble look alikes – tiles, countertops and finishes that emulate marble but are much easier to keep clean and pristine.

4. Balance Openness and Privacy

Interior designers have long focused on making sure the toilet is not the first thing you see when you open the door to the bathroom. The latest trend, however, is that the toilet moves into a separate nook or even a separate room. Separated from the rest of the bathroom with a wall or frosted doors to give even more privacy.

5. Add Some Green

Decorate with luscious plants – go all in to create a tropical bathroom style or just add a few plants for some extra life. Lots of plants thrive in the hot, damp conditions of a bathroom. Just make sure you cater to the lighting needs of the plant.

6. Mix and Match Different Styles

Blend the traditional with the contemporary and create your very own bathroom style. Better known as the transitional bathroom style, mixing the old with the new is currently one of the most popular bathroom styles around. To succeed, make sure to choose one or two features as focus points and keep everything else clean and simple. For example, choose a furniture-style vanity and pair it with a clean and simple mirror.
