As 2023 draws to a close, we’re ready to explore the biggest trends expected to takeover bathrooms in 2024.
We’ll look through the five trends we expect to be leading the way when it comes to bathroom design next year.
From warmer colour palettes, mixed metal fittings and nature-inspired aesthetics through to hybrid styling of the old and new and even moving away from the traditional shower enclosures, 2024 is the year for change when it comes to re-vamping the bathroom.
External factors such as the ongoing cost of living crisis are expected to influence the way people take on home improvements, resulting in a mix and match approach and the growing desire to make the home a sanctuary will mean relaxation is also at the forefront of design decisions.
These are our top 5 biggest bathroom trends for 2024!
1 – Cosy Colours
2024 will be all about bringing sophisticated warmth to your home including the bathroom.
People will be swapping stark and clean looking contrasts, which have dominated interior palettes in the last few years, for perfectly blended creams, soft browns, and rich rustic woods, think ‘Cabincore’.
These earthy inspired palettes will turn your bathroom into a cocoon of peace; a perfect place to start and finish your day.
2 – Mixed Metals
Get ready to embrace bold combinations of bathroom hardware.
Use a variety of brassware colours to complement and accentuate individuality.
People will be leaning towards warmer metals, mixing brushed copper with brushed golds and other metallics.
It is not a trend for the faint hearted, but when done right, will produce a bathroom full of character.
3 – A Move Towards Built In Showers
Next year we will see more people moving away from exposed glass cube shower enclosures and stepping into the era of shower spaces built into the bathroom.
The conventional glass shower enclosure is still ideal for sectioning off the shower area without losing space and light, but people are becoming increasingly inventive by keeping their built-in showers well-lit and inviting with clever windows and spotlight installations.
4 – Get Grounded With Nature
In the realm of bathroom aesthetics, there is a burgeoning embrace of natural elements.
In 2024, we will see organic textures such as timber, stone, and even living foliage, seamlessly converging to craft an opulent and grounding bathroom haven.
These elemental accents will add to the visual allure of people’s bathrooms, and usher in a profound tactile opulence; resulting in an elevated design experience that tantalises the senses each day and night.
This trend can be seen as an extension of that desire to create a sanctuary at home and the need for enhanced relaxation.
5 – The Hybrid Aesthetic
In what is expected to be an interesting shift for bathrooms in 2024, the hybrid aesthetic will see sleek contemporary features beside those of that cottage core rustic charm that has been so popular over the last few years.
We’ll see ultra-modern vanity units offset by reclaimed driftwood and new mirrors combined with vintage lighting, as people try to reduce the cost of home updates and choose to upcycle- another trend that has been on the up this year according to Google trends.
This will likely result in a blended look that celebrates a mismatch of styles that are married by quality and purpose.
