Get ready to be inspired and discover the top Pinterest bathroom trends that are making waves in 2024.  

Let's dive in and explore the exciting world of bathroom design on Pinterest! 


1. Earthy and organic 

If you head to Pinterest and search for contemporary bathroom designs, your screen will instantly transform to a color palette of sandy beige, soft browns, and muted greens.  

In other words, tones that are earthy and natural are becoming the go-to colors for bathrooms in recent years – and with good reason. These types of natural colors create a calming and soothing atmosphere in the bathroom, evoking a sense of relaxation and tranquility. 

Organic and natural shapes and patterns too are on-trend. Just like nature, organic might mean that things aren't symmetrical, but that should be exactly what you're going for. Pinterest is filled with bathrooms that have organically-shaped mirrors. Wallpaper is another great way to introduce a natural look.

What’s a great way to work in these colors? Updating your bathroom vanities to an option like this James Martin vanity, which has a neutral tone that can easily align with an earthy ambiance.

2. Patterned tiles 

Unique and eye-catching tiles, especially in patterns are a hot trend on Pinterest for bathroom design. This can include mosaic tiles, patterned tiles, or bold-colored tiles used as an accent wall, backsplash, or super on-trend for 2024: floors.  

Statement tiles can add personality and visual interest to the bathroom, making it a focal point of the space. Plus, they allow you to experiment with color and have a little fun in a space that can otherwise feel a bit bland. Consider your shower floor, a perfect place to do something different and bold in the bathroom.

3. Modern design 

A third trend you’ll see everywhere on Pinterest is modern bathroom design. This means clean lines and simple shapes to create a clutter-free and streamlined look.  According to Real Simple, 55% of people surveyed about bathroom trends in 2024 said contemporary design blended with natural influences was their bathroom design of choice.

To achieve this trend, you’ll want to add sleek fixtures, minimal d├ęcor, and functional storage solutions that keep the bathroom organized and uncluttered. For example, this Aquabrass Single Hole Bathroom Faucet is a great option for a minimalist look. You can also opt for a minimalist sink like this gorgeous White Pedestal Sink by Messina, which has a simple and stylish acrylic finish.  


4. Smart technology features 

Technology is playing a bigger role in bathroom design, with smart bathroom features becoming a major trend on Pinterest. This includes smart mirrors with built-in lighting and Bluetooth speakers, touchless faucets, heated floors, and voice-activated showers, adding convenience, comfort, and efficiency to the bathroom. 

In particular, smart technology features that are also sustainable are hugely popular, like this Dual Flush Toilet with Dynamax Tornado Flush Technology. Its highly efficient flush system promotes water conservation, leading to less water use overall.

5. Spa-like upgrades  

Finally, Pinterest users are looking for ways to create a spa-like atmosphere in their bathrooms, with features such as rain showerheads, steam showers, built-in benches, and mood lighting.  

These elements can create a relaxing and rejuvenating experience, transforming the bathroom into a personal retreat. Plus, having a spa-like ambiance in your bathroom can encourage healthy habits, such as taking time for self-care, mindfulness, and prioritizing your well-being. 


6. Medicine Cabinets

Remember medicine cabinets? That lovely storage space behind a mirror, above the sink that guests love to poke around in? They're back on-trend and better than ever. 

The medicine cabinets of today have smart tech, lighting, and more. They can be recessed for a sleek look, or can go in a corner. There are so many more options for the medicine cabinet, it's no wonder they are back on top of the trends list.

Bidet & Washlet 101

If bidets and washlets have conquered the world, consider the United States the final frontier. While both products have been popular overseas for a considerable amount of time, they’re just now becoming popular stateside.  

There are plenty of benefits to choosing a bidet or washlet. But they’re still a bit rare, and they can be a little confusing to install and use. Allow us to be of assistance. 

If you’re considering going the bidet and washlet route, let us wash away any doubts you may have in this comprehensive guide.

What Is a Bidet?  

Bidets are an all-in-one hygiene solution for after you’ve used the bathroom. They’re common in Asia and some parts of Europe, so chances are you’ve seen one in your hotel if you’ve traveled abroad. 

While some bidets can be attached to your toilet seat, most bidets are separate receptacles placed next to your toilet. The typical features include: 

  • Vertical Spray or Deck Mount Faucets 
  • Wall or Floor Mount Installation
  • Easy-Clean Construction  

But your options don’t end there. To match your toilet, choose the corresponding: 

Style

There are a couple of different finishes available, including Cotton, Colonial White, Sedona Beige, and Bone. 

Material

Most of our bidets are made of vitreous china or ceramic. 

Bowl Shape

Choose from elongated, standing oval, single hole, and more. 


Your installation process will vary by installation type. Make sure to follow the manufacturer’s directions for the easiest and safest outcome. 


 To use your bidet after using the toilet, simply: 

  • Straddle the bidet. 
  • Adjust the bidet controls. 
  • Wash yourself. 
  • Dry yourself once clean. 

Depending on the model you choose, you may need to supplement the cleaning process via a washcloth and the drying process with a nearby towel or toilet paper.

 What Is a Washlet? 

A washlet is like a toilet seat-sized bidet on steroids. Originally invented by TOTO, a Japanese toilet company, washlets also act as that all-in-one hygiene solution but with many more customizations for maximum comfort. Some of the features you may find include: 

  • Automatic Flushing 
  • Heating and Drying Buttons 
  • Quick Release and Soft Close Buttons 
  • Self-Cleaning Capabilities 
  • Remote Control Operation 
  • Built-In Air Purification 
  • Programmable Energy Saver Systems 

 A washlet is installed right on your existing toilet in the place of your current toilet seat. To ensure your washlet fits your toilet properly, make sure to choose the right: 

Style

Your options include a modern/contemporary look or a traditional/classic look. 

 Material

While most washlets are made of plastic, others are available in vitreous china. 

 Bowl Shape

There are four different bowl shapes to choose from, including shaped, elongated, round, and square.

To install your washlet, follow this 5-step process provided by TOTO: 

  • Remove the old toilet seat. 
  • Install the washlet seat mounting bracket. 
  • Slide the washlet on the bracket. 
  • Connect the washlet’s hose. 
  • Turn the washlet on.

To use your washlet, simply select the area you want to cleanse and press the corresponding button on your washlet’s remote. Once you’ve pressed the button, your washlet will do the rest of the work for you.

 Which One Is Right for You? 

Both bidets and washlets come with plenty of pros to consider. No matter which one you buy, expect to save on toilet paper while experiencing fewer clogs and pipe problems due to less toilet paper use. You can also expect a lower water bill and a greater sense of comfort and cleanliness. Each model is also great for pregnant women and individuals with disabilities.  

Choosing between a bidet and a washlet comes down to several factors, such as: 

  • Budget 
  • Space Constraints 
  • Desired Cleaning Frequency 
  • Installation Specifics 

Washlets tend to work better for users with smaller bathrooms that prefer accessories and self-cleaning. Bidets, on the other hand, are best suited for users with larger bathrooms that want a different experience and don’t mind a bit of extra cleaning. 


 No matter which one you choose, a brand-new bidet or washlet is an excellent choice for a better bathroom.
