2023 Design Trends for Bath and Shower Replacements

2023 Design Trends for Bath and Shower Replacements

Is your bathroom ready for a facelift? Updating your shower or bath will give your bathroom new life and adds value to your home. Take a look at some top 2023 design trends for bathroom and shower replacement projects. 

Shower Trends 

Sliding Glass Shower Doors 

If you have a tub shower instead of a walk-in shower with sliding doors, consider investing in a shower upgrade. Upgrading from a shower curtain to something more durable and long-lasting adds to the elegance of your bathroom and is a surprisingly affordable project. Glass doors are easier to clean than curtains, and last longer with less maintenance. Shower curtain liners need to be replaced about every 6 months, making it a recurring cost instead of a one-time payment. Sliding glass doors add to the clean lines of your modern bathroom replacing an outdated curtain look.  

Seamless Shower Screens 

Skip the shower door altogether and opt for a seamless shower screen that includes a glass panel protecting just part of the shower area from the showerhead spray. It can help to make a smaller shower appear larger. 

Oversized Walk-In Showers 

Converting a traditional bathtub to a walk-in oversized shower immediately modernizes the look of the bathroom. Your new larger shower becomes a focal point with decorative tiles with interesting geometric designs. 

 Specialty Showerheads 

Add luxury to your shower by replacing a traditional showerhead with a rain showerhead or with multiple showerheads. If you’re looking for a smaller addition to make your bathroom more serene, adding a shower hose to your shower is practical, making it easier to rinse off, and elevate your showering experience. 

Design Elements 

Metallic Accents 

Something as small as replacing the hardware in your bathroom can upgrade its look without changing the overall style. Installing a metallic shower door handle with matching faucets creates a sense of fluidity throughout your bathroom and a modernized look. There is a wide variety of bathroom fixtures, making it a highly customizable addition. 

 Backlit Mirrors 

The ring light trend doesn’t have to be limited to selfies; backlit mirrors are typically circle-shaped and protrude front the wall, with a bright light behind the fixture. This elevated mirror is both aesthetic and functional, providing a brighter and clearer reflection for your morning routine. 

 Patterned Tiling 

Forget the traditional white tiling, modern bathrooms are showcasing personality through bold tiling and unique patterns. New bathrooms are using colors and non-traditional shapes to freshen the space. Chequerboard tiling is making a comeback as well this year. 

Creating a Home Spa 

Soaking Tub 

Replacing your smaller tub with a larger, isolated bathtub will make your bathroom feel like a day at the spa and provide you the space to relax and rejuvenate. Upgrading a shower tub with a standalone tub adds sophistication to the bathroom. Adding a window or skylight to the space can bring in natural light and a bit of nature into the room while you soak! 

Calming Colors 

Black can be a calming color that adds a dramatic modern look to a bathroom. Experts suggest using black in one area of the bathroom to determine its effect on lighting in the room. 

For bathrooms that adjoin the bathroom, pull the color palette from the bedroom into the bathroom for a spa-like feel to the suite. 

 When you’re ready to make upgrades to your bathroom, invest in the projects that matter most to you. There are many small bathroom projects that are low cost and high reward, and many can be done in as little as one day!
