Your bathroom is a prime spot to relax and unwind. While you might consider your kitchen or living room the most important spaces to focus on, your bathroom has the potential to be one of the trendiest rooms in your home. Show off your personal style by upgrading to one of these bathroom trends that have grown in popularity this year.

Dam-less showers

Showers without dams simply blend into the rest of the bathroom. While a half-wall might separate the shower area from the rest of the room, dam-less showers still make for an open, spacious feel. If you choose to install this type of shower, you’ll need to get your floor redone so that it slants toward the drain to prevent water from drifting into other areas of the bathroom. This sleek look will make for a polished bathroom.

Floor-to-ceiling shower glass enclosure

Instead of a simple curtain, why not have a glass door as the entryway to your shower? Different from sliding glass doors that can accompany traditional showers, these showers lack the typical attached tub. Instead, these glass doors touch both the bathroom’s ceiling and the tiled floor that make up the rest of the room. Like the dam-less showers, this feature makes the shower feel more integrated into the rest of the bathroom for a modern feel.

Free-standing tubs

Although free-standing tubs were popular in the past before people started opting for shower-tub combinations, they’re making a comeback. You can opt for a claw-footed tub to give your bathroom a classic, vintage feel. If you’re looking for a more modern look, you can purchase a simple free-standing tub. These luxury items allow for longer and more comfortable baths that you can throw into your self-care routine.

New color schemes

This year, neutral palettes have been trending for bathrooms. The use of a monochromatic color scheme helps create a unified, modern-looking atmosphere. On the other hand, dark color schemes are also becoming big for bathrooms. Many people have started to design mostly black bathrooms for a polished, luxurious look.

Exposed shower plumbing

Exposed shower plumbing works well with light colors and adds an industrial element that some may look for in an otherwise uniformly colored room.

Statement features  

Whether it’s through flowery, brightly colored wallpaper or a bold piece of art, people are bringing stylish elements into their bathrooms. More and more people have begun to view bathrooms as luxury, spa-like spaces rather than using them for simple utility. This decor will add a splash of color and personality to your space.

Infrared saunas

If you’re looking to make a large upgrade, infrared saunas have gained popularity this year. The warm air provides the same health benefits as a regular sauna but takes up much less space in your home. Sit in your infrared sauna to sweat out toxins and relax all at once.

There are countless exciting bathroom design trends going on this year. Consider making one of these changes for some added flare.
