4 Bathroom Trends in 2023 You Won’t Want to MissOrin
What better way to celebrate the coming of 2023 than by refreshing the look and feel of the place where you spend the bulk of your time? We’ve always emphasised the importance of starting and ending your day on the right note – so why not start the year right with a trendy and aesthetically pleasing bathroom!
Bathrooms are the ideal target for most remodelling works, as their relatively compact space typically means a less hefty bill, and with a shorter renovation turnaround time, you get to enjoy your renewed space faster. What’s more, any mess created in the bathroom is easy to clean up, meaning a minimal amount of intrusion to your life while the works are ongoing.
If you’re looking into renovating your bathroom for the trendiest looks in 2023, be sure to check out our tips below:
1. Backlit Mirrors as Light Sources
Lighting has always been a major consideration in bathroom design. While the debate of natural light versus artificial light has landed quite heavily in natural light’s favour these recent years, designers all around the world are coming back around to appreciate the importance and versatility of artificial light.
Although downlights will continue to play a major role in lighting your bathrooms, backlit mirrors are providing a tasteful and clean approach to vanity lighting, providing both ambient and accent illumination in a completely unobtrusive way. Especially when paired with large mirrors that span the length of the wall, the effect can be quite breathtaking!
2. Tasteful Terrazzo Floors & Walls
You may have heard this one already, and we can confirm that it is true: terrazzo is back and more stylish than ever! Advances in tilemaking methods have led to the terrazzo revival we are currently experiencing, and they have returned in a big way to grace your floors and walls.
Where in the past, your choices for a sink backsplash may have been limited to stone or marble design tiles, you can now consider Felice by Portino as a tasteful terrazzo backsplash to accompany your Forli basin!
3. Focus on Fundamental Geometries
While there was a time when freeform and abstract geometries were all the rage in interior design, for 2023 we are seeing a shift back toward the basics. Fundamental geometries, such as squares and circles, represent a return to a more stable and predictable state of being – perfect for the bathroom, where one would go for some relaxation and rejuvenation.
When picking out pieces for your bathroom, you might consider Viola as a basin for its pleasing symmetrical look, or even Venal as a water closet for its timeless design. Other ways that this can be achieved can be through the deployment of large circular vanity mirrors or a well-positioned shower niche that adds a pleasing sense of balance to the whole space.
4. Seamless Glass Showers
The separation of the shower area from the rest of the bathroom has always been a choice borne more out of practical than aesthetic concerns. While this had manifested in the past as shower curtains and doors, in recent times, seamless glass showers or wet rooms have been favoured for ease of movement and also maintenance.
Seamless shower spaces are especially great for smaller bathrooms, where shower doors may impede movement. In such spaces, you could also consider space-saving bathroom furnishings like the Smart2 one-piece water closet that provides full functionality in a compact package.
