2023 Bathroom Trends


Are you looking to create a bathroom that not only functions well but creates an inviting space to relax after a long day? If the answer is yes, then keep reading to see our upcoming bathroom trends for 2023.

Whether you’re thinking of a complete bathroom renovation or just looking to update a couple of items, we’ve got you covered.

From luxury statement features to splash out on, like freestanding and spa-style baths, to simple colour updates, we’ve got something to suit all budgets.

Old and new


Mixing traditional contemporary features is something that wouldn’t have been considered a few years ago, but now vintage furniture and upcycling have really come into their own.

With a focus on the environment and money-saving solutions over the last year, it’s no surprise people aren’t splashing out on that luxurious contemporary bathroom they dreamed of. Instead, many people are switching to more affordable items in the form of upcycling.

When you can purchase a piece of furniture for next to nothing and smarten it up with a posh tap and basin, why wouldn’t you?

But it’s not just furniture. People are even re-using tiles, flooring, and sanitaryware in a bid to keep costs down.

Spa experience


This might be one for a large budget, but we all love a pamper, don’t we? With this in mind, have you ever thought about creating a luxury spa-like feel in your own home?

Whether you prefer a shower or a bath, there are plenty of options for creating your own spa-style experience at home. If you love relaxing in a hot tub, then a whirlpool bath might be the perfect addition to your bathroom. With strategically placed jets and even relaxing LED lighting, you’ll have the ideal place to unwind after a long day.

However, if a shower is more up your street, why not consider a tranquil BubbleSpa shower? With air-powered and BubbleSpa technology, this stunning shower is able to create perfect 20mm bubbles, providing a truly otherworldly showering experience.

Statement tiles


2023 is going to be all about creating a statement. One way to create a truly beautiful statement in your bathroom is through the choice of wall and floor tiles. Traditional patterned tiles are making a massive comeback and can be used in small amounts or throughout your whole bathroom.

You could even choose to mix and match tile patterns. Choosing a plain tile laid in a diagonal pattern for example, paired with a geometric floor tile.

Terrazzo tiles are set to be one of the most common tile choices for 2023 and come in various colours, shapes, and sizes, making them the perfect choice for any bathroom, large or small.

Luxury marble and stone


Keeping on the theme of statement and stand-out features, marble and stone are also set to be key 2023 bathroom trends.

While they might not be the cheapest materials, marble and stone are luxurious. From floor and wall tiles to countertops and even basins, there are plenty of ways for you to add these gorgeous materials to your bathroom.

Anthracite statement features


Anthracite is a colour that’s been around for years but it’s only now that it’s really making a stand. From radiators to vanity units and bathroom cabinets, there are plenty of ways you can add this stylish, contemporary colour to your bathroom.

Looking to add a touch of colour to your bathroom in 2023, but don’t know where to start? The colours taking centre stage in 2023 are olive green and pastel pink. Now, you don’t have to use both but why not?

Olive green and pastel pink are two colours you might not think of pairing together, but they actually complement each other exceptionally well. However, if you’re unsure about the colour pairing, you could always introduce just one or the other.

If you’re looking for a natural earthy tone for your bathroom, then olive green is an amazing choice and looks great paired with a house plant or two.


On the other hand, if you’re looking to create a light and bright space to cheer you up even on the dullest of days, then pastel pink is a great choice. Moreover, it pairs perfectly with gold accent features such as taps and showers.

Relax in luxury


Are you looking to create a luxurious space for a well-deserved relaxing bath? If the answer is yes, then why not create a beautiful statement feature in your bathroom with a gorgeous freestanding bath?

Luxury freestanding baths are set to be one of the top bathroom trends for 2023, with everyone needing somewhere to relax after a long hard day’s work. Available in a variety of styles from classic roll tops to contemporary white and even bright coloured designs you’re guaranteed to find the perfect fit for your very own bathroom oasis.

Energy and water-saving products


With the cost of living currently at a 41-year high, one of the biggest trends of 2023 is likely to be money and water-saving products. Your bathroom and kitchen are probably two of the most expensive rooms in a home, with water, electricity, and gas, so how can you keep costs down?

Toilet and basin combination units are something that most people don’t even know exists, but they are sure to become a popular bathroom item in 2023. Combining the toilet and basin not only allows you to fit both in a tiny space but with their dual flush abilities, you could even dramatically cut your water usage.

Another amazing way to cut down on your water usage in 2023 is through eco taps and showers, providing you with the same water pressure as standard taps and showers, but with less water. If you don’t believe me, take a look at the video below which explains all.

Power-saving items are also likely to be big in 2023. From dual fuel radiators and towel rails to smart heating, allowing you to control your heating from your phone, there are plenty of ways to save electricity and money in 2023.
