Here Are the Hottest Bathroom Trends for 2023, According to Design Pros (1)

Although it's a room rooted in function, the bathroom is the perfect space to flex your creativity. Bathroom design schemes should be built to last, but that doesn't mean you need to keep dated finishes, fixtures or styles. There are endless ways to refresh your design (without a full remodel), whether with a new bathroom vanity, playful wallpaper design or the addition of modern bathroom decor. To inspire your next bathroom or powder room makeover, we asked our favorite interior designers and architects to share new bathroom trends that they're loving for 2023.

From small bathrooms to luxury retreats, we've rounded up beautiful bathroom designs you'll want to recreate. While some designers are sticking with neutrals like lighter tones and nature-inspired woods, which showed up in our 2022 bathroom trends list, others are all about going bold with intriguing tile designs and colorful cabinetry. Two of our experts believe statement bathrooms are making an entrance this year, which means turning yours into a high-end haven. As always, bathroom lighting is a topic of conversation — hint: one designer thinks decorative fixtures will be huge.

With 2023 only a month away, it's the best time to gather fresh inspiration for your bathroom, regardless of its size. Whether you favor minimal, modern or rustic bathroom designs — or you're looking to try an upcoming design style, you're sure to find a trend that sparks interest this year.

Mix and Match Tiles

Here Are the Hottest Bathroom Trends for 2023, According to Design Pros (4)

Japandi Design

Here Are the Hottest Bathroom Trends for 2023, According to Design Pros (5)

“Japandi design style is up and coming, and it will carry on into 2023 and beyond. Its Scandinavian design meets Japanese influence — slatted wood, black wood stains and modern shapes. We're using black, chrome or white for our metals, not really bringing in any of the gold.” — Kelsey McGregor, founder of Kelsey Leigh Design Co

Spa-Like Bathrooms

Here Are the Hottest Bathroom Trends for 2023, According to Design Pros (10)

"This season, we're really going to see a rise in what I like to call, 'The New Statement Bathroom.' This is a bathroom that makes me feel like I've been whisked away to a spa overlooking water. It means luxurious finishes (like natural stone and unlacquered brass), a large soaking tub, framed views bringing the outside in and cabinetry that looks and feels like you'd see in a high-end co*cktail bar." — Killy Scheer, Scheer & Co.

Textured Tiles

Here Are the Hottest Bathroom Trends for 2023, According to Design Pros (14)

"Textured, decorative tile is likely to gain popularity in 2023. The shapes add decorative interest, dimension and artistry to a space, particularly for hand-crafted or highly detailed tiles. Uniquely textured tile may also catch shadows or reflect light, contributing to the room's overall mood as lighting is modified." — Sarah Barnard, interior designer
