2024 Bathroom Design Trends


Bathrooms may be the spaces that were traditionally overlooked in terms of design, but those times are long gone. Bathrooms are rooted in functionality, but they are also now beautifully designed and are a perfect way to add individuality to your home. Are you wondering what’s in vogue for 2024 bathroom design? Let’s dive into these 2024 bathroom design trends!

Spa-Like Features

As homeowners begin to focus more on wellness and stress reduction, holistic, spa-like bathrooms are on the horizon for 2024. Think steam showers, towel warmers, cold plunge tubs, hydro-thermo massage, and heated floors to transform your bathroom into a calming oasis.

One of our favorite ways to create a spa-like experience is incorporating steam showers from Mr. Steam. Steam showers offer many benefits, such as stress relief, detoxification, muscle recovery, and improved circulation. The Effe Yoku SH, a sauna, Turkish bath, and steam shower all in one, is also a fantastic option for elevating your bathroom. It incorporates soothing aroma therapy and chroma therapy, and even allows you to connect to your music source for a complete immersive experience in relaxation and rejuvenation.

Even simple features like incorporating larger windows or a skylight for extra natural light will be prevalent. In addition, opting for natural materials like marble and wood in the bathroom is a way to create a grounding atmosphere. Prioritizing a light, open, and airy feel in the bathroom almost directly correlates to wellness as it instills a sense of peace and calm.

Smart Toilets

Smart toilets are on the rise for 2024 and likely, for the foreseeable future. Though smart toilets aren’t as popular in the United States as they are abroad, they are making their way into more households thanks to their unique features. In addition to functions like spray-cleansing, air drying, and adjustable water and pressure settings, many smart toilets can automatically flush, open and close the lid, and self-clean.

TOTO is a brand rooted in Japanese culture where porcelain and pottery are respected and revered. TOTO’s smart toilets and washlets have two flushing options to reduce water consumption and waste, feature multiple bidet functions to eliminate the need for toilet paper, and are self-cleaning, limiting excess water needed to maintain your toilet’s hygiene and appearance. TOTO toilets are not only equipped with technology, they offer a gorgeous aesthetic that both elevates and enhances the flow of your bathroom space.

Large Format Tile

In 2024, we will marvel at large-format tile. While they are often reserved for commercial use, large format tiles are a big trend for residential bathrooms in the coming year. They produce a uniquely uniform finish without the interference of obvious grout lines. Another benefit of large-format marble tile is that it’s a breeze to clean in comparison to smaller tiles with more grout lines.

Surface drenching, where every surface in a room is the same as the next, is also a big trend for 2024. Large format tile lends itself particularly well to this and creates a seamless, sleek look for flooring, countertops, and walls. With this method, smaller spaces can appear larger if using light colors, or dark and dramatic with the use of a darker color.

Lighted Mirrors

While lighted mirrors may not sound like the most exciting 2024 bathroom trend, read on to learn about the host of functional benefits that they can introduce to a bathroom!

Backlit lighting is an easy upgrade to make to elevate both the functionality and ambiance of any bathroom. Brands like Electric Mirror and Robern are great sources for backlit lighting options, with aesthetically pleasing mirrors that incorporate cutting edge technologies. As a global leader in mirror technology, Electric Mirror transforms your vanity experience with innovative features ranging from touch point controls, smart home connectivity, dimmable light spectrums, and built-in audio-video systems. You can fully customize their mirrored selections to fit your everyday home lifestyle, with resort-like convenience at your fingertips. To top it off, Electric Mirror’s built in defogger and corrosion resistant DuraMirror™ glass make their mirrors ideal for warm and humid environments like the bathroom.

Robern’s Sculpt Lighted Mirrors collection offers meticulously designed framed mirrors that take the same optimal brightness and add stunningly stylish enhancements to ensure you always find your best light. The sophisticated interplay of premium task lighting and frames worthy of a museum make the Sculpt Lighted Mirror an undeniably exquisite focal point in a variety of styling spaces. Robern’s AiO collection merges minimalist design with the most innovative features – like integrated lighting, built-in audio, magnetic storage and integrated USB and electrical outlets – to provide you everything you need plus premium craftsmanship.

Mixed Metals

When it comes to bathrooms for 2024, mixed metals are in. If you can’t decide on exclusively warm or cool-toned hardware, mixing metals is absolutely the way to go.

Here’s our hot tip for how to mix metals: stick with timeless finishes like chrome, polished nickel, and brass for permanent fixtures like faucets, shower heads, and lighting. Then, use your secondary finishes on mirrors, drawer pulls, towel bars, etc. The golden rule? Try not to mix more than 3 metals in 1 space. For more tips on choosing the right hardware for your home, read through this comprehensive article here. Or, make an appointment at one of our 7 PIRCH showrooms to explore hundreds of hardware options in person. Whether you’re going for a chic, modern, or timeless look, mixing metals adds visual interest to your bathroom.

Warm Hues

Warmer neutrals and colors will be the go-to for bathrooms in 2024, replacing cooler tones from years past. The goal? To create a soothing space using nature-inspired colors and tones that evoke feelings of relaxation and calm.

In 2024, we will see an influx of color palettes that are inspired by nature including deep blues, purples, greens, as well as warm, desert inspired neutrals. As wellness has become such an important theme in society over the past few years, homeowners are likely being drawn to cultivate a grounding, soothing atmosphere in their home, especially in bathrooms. Rich tones such as terracotta, deep blues, and lush greens are ideal for creating a relaxed atmosphere reminiscent of nature. Terracotta, meaning “baked earth,” is a specific shade that will be in vogue, as it adds a warm, yet rich look and feel to a space.

We hope you enjoyed these 6 bathroom trends for 2024, and are leaving this article feeling inspired for your next bathroom refresh or remodel.
