1. Minimalist Vanity Lighting

Bathrooms in 2023 and beyond are all about a modern minimalist sort of vibe. That doesn't mean boring, however. Consider the vanity lighting, where one of the hottest trends is simple, yet stunning vanity lighting that leans toward the modern style. 

Though simple, it's interesting and makes a statement that sets the stage for the bathroom aesthetic. Try something architectural that adds an interesting, yet not overstated shape. Choose unusual bulbs that stand on their own design merits.

2. Backlit Mirrors

The lighted mirrors aren't just for a movie star's dressing room, they are for your bathroom too, according to 2023 design experts. Maybe you don't want a mirror surrounded by globe lights, but the backlit mirror might be just the thing.

It adds ambiance and a little lighting where it counts for a dramatic and functional set up your bathroom shouldn't be without.

3. Nature-Inspired Color

The earthy, nature-inspired colors are coming forward on everything from the walls to the more permanent features of the bathroom. The warm earth tones like sage, amber, slate, even beige all invite the calm you want for a relaxing bathroom environment.

Colors like blue, green, and even pastels are a welcome addition to the nature-inspired palette. Don't rule out the earthiness of metallics like copper to add this ambiance to your space.

5. Terrazzo

Terrazzo, a speckled cement look was hot in the 1970s but is making its way back in 2023, especially in the bathroom. The beautiful look is neutral and statement making all at once. It also offers lots of options for color and texture as the speckles can be matte or glossy, neutral gray or bright red. 

The manufactured nature of terrazzo also gives you many options as to where it can go. It can be used on the floor, countertop, backsplash, even a shower wall.

6. Spacious Layout

Big bathrooms are in. Be sure to give your bathroom a large footprint if you are building a new home. If you have to deal with the space you already have, there are ways to make your bathroom look and feel bigger. 

Use a light color palette and introduce lots of light (natural and electric) to expand the space visually. You can further enhance this effect by choosing reflective materials for your bathroom. Glossy finishes shiny metallics, and large mirrors go a long way to trick your brain into thinking your space is bigger than it is.

7. Statement Fixtures

Another hot bathroom trend in 2023 is statement faucets. Not only are these the centerpoint of functionality in your bathroom, they also attract a lot of attention visually. Those are both good reasons to make sure they perform optimally in every sense.

Making a statement with your faucets may be about introducing top-of-the-line technology like voice activation or touch activation. It might also be about how they look. Opt for clean-lined, angular designs or tall curving goose-neck style faucets. Of particular note in 2023 is the spout style faucet.

8. Mixing Materials

2023 bathroom trends include the mixture of colors, metals, textures, and more. It also marks the emergence of softer materials finding a place alongside the otherwise hard-surfaced bathroom. 

An easy way to achieve this is to bring furniture into the bathroom. We’re talking cushy chairs, upholstered benches, and thick shag rugs. It seems like the opposite of what should be in a bathroom, but therein lies the heart of a good trend: unexpected and delightful. Look for water-resistant fabrics for any pieces that will be near running water. 

Bathroom design trends of 2023 introduce luxury without being fussy and simplicity without being spare. Let your bathroom benefit from these trends that will add value to your home and panache to your everyday life.
