5 bathroom trends to inspire your renovation in 2023

With a fresh new year upon us, we know many homeowners will be considering all the home improvements they want to make happen in the year ahead, and might have a brand new bathroom at the top of their 2023 wishlist. Whether you’ve just moved home and want to make it more ‘you’, or your current space is becoming increasingly impractical for your changing lifestyle, or perhaps your bathroom just doesn’t have the wow-factor it once did years ago, we’re here to help.

To give you some inspiration and finally get you started in bringing your dream bathroom to life this year, we’ve shared 5 of the top trends for bathrooms for 2023…

Natural materials

Instead of the classic glossy white porcelain we’ve come to associate with a stylish bathroom, 2023 will see the continued rise of a more authentic and imperfect quality that comes with natural materials. It’s time to break from tradition and embrace the organic beauty of natural wood and stone to create a warm and inviting space in your home, with a seamless mix of textures to keep it looking interesting.

So how do you get the look? Consider combining wood with brass or black accents to elevate the rustic quality of wood and create a contemporary and sleek finish. Alternatively, you could opt for sage green walls to further accentuate the idea of bringing the relaxing tones of nature into your home.

Decorative Lighting

Lighting may seem like a purely functional part of a bathroom, and can often be overlooked when designing your new space. However, lighting is a great way to get creative with your new bathroom design and create a certain mood or style, all while adding a level of functionality to the space.

Although decorative lighting isn’t a new concept, 2023 will be a year of even more interesting lighting ideas. Think ornate ceiling lights, elegant wall sconces and stylish LED mirrors, all perfect for giving your bathroom a striking focal point while helping to create a soothing and ambient atmosphere where you can truly relax in your home.

Spa-Like Bathrooms

Just like the lighting, the room itself is no longer merely functional. In 2023, we’re going to see a rise in the ‘spa-like bathroom’, a room that makes you feel as though you’ve been transported to a luxury spa resort in the comfort of your own home. Having a space to relax and unwind is becoming increasingly more important as our lives become more hectic, so a bathroom that resembles a boutique spa is almost becoming a matter of well-being as well as aesthetics.

Features such as large bathtubs, high-end cabinetry and ornate finishes - like brass handles - will be all the rage in the next year to create a luxurious look in your bathroom, whether you have a busy family home, a small en-suite in need of some TLC, or an apartment with limited space available.

Dark Finishes

Say goodbye to bright white and glossy porcelain - darker colours are coming back and they’ve never looked better! In 2023, dark and moody gothic styles will replace the more traditional cottage core which has dominated home interiors for the past couple of years, with rich wood tones alongside dark finishes such as black, granite and green.

The temptation with a smaller room, such as a bathroom, is to use light colours and create the illusion of more space. However, dark tones can elevate a bathroom to a look that’s very chic and elegant. To balance the look, bring in warm brass finishes and think carefully about lighting to lift the mood.

Energy and water-saving features

It’s no surprise that sustainable features are going to be a prevalent trend for bathrooms in 2023, as households look to be more eco-friendly and try to save on energy bills with the current cost of living crisis.

What we’re seeing more of are clever technologies that help homeowners save consumption and live their lives a little bit more seamlessly. For instance, there’s smart water metres which allow you to track how much water you use, as well as taps and shower heads that offer energy-saving aspects, such as reduced pressure and temperature controls.
