Bathroom Remodeling Trends for 2024
Bathrooms are making bold moves in 2024 proving they are no longer just utilitarian spaces, but a place to show off your design chops. According to our Normandy Designers, high-contrast palettes, artistic lighting, and fabulous shower aesthetics are just some of the top bathroom trends we’ll be seeing this year.
Let’s dive into the must-haves and chic choices that will transform your bathroom into a sanctuary of style.
For those who love a bold statement, high contrast is the name of the game, and there’s nothing more dramatic than the classic black and white color palette. These timeless hues exude sophistication and create a clean, crisp ambiance. Achieve the high contrast look by pairing white subway tiles with matte black fixtures, or a standalone bathtub against a dramatic dark wall treatment. It is all about making a statement without sacrificing harmony.
Dark Vanities Reign
Dark vanities are stealing the spotlight in bathroom design this year. Rich wood tones or deep, moody colors are being embraced to add warmth and opulence to the space. The juxtaposition of a dark vanity with a white countertop and light-colored flooring adds depth and character, creating a luxurious retreat within your home.
Conventional sinks are making way for something more unique in the way of recessed vessel sinks, and even elongated trough sinks. These statement pieces elevate your bathroom with their sculptural designs and diverse material choices. Whether it’s a sleek cast iron basin or a handcrafted ceramic bowl, the new approach to unconventional sinks adds a touch of individuality and elevates your bathroom’s overall appeal.
Mirrors Beyond Reflection
Wall of mirrors, be gone! This year, mirrors are taking on new shapes and forms. Embrace fun and unique designs that serve as artistic focal points in your bathroom. Whether it’s a framed silhouette or a playful geometric pattern, these mirrors transcend functionality and become stand out features that reflect your distinctive style.
Shower Aesthetic Upgrades
Your shower is no longer just a functional space; it’s a canvas for design expression. The complexity of the old “car wash” shower fixtures have been traded-in for a more streamlined approach that captures the essence of functionality but keeps the focus on design. Consider a gold rain shower head, mosaic tiles, or even a contrasting niche to transform your shower into a personal oasis. Statement shower doors – perhaps framed in black or adorned with a unique pattern – complete the look.
Lighting is no longer just about illumination – it’s a piece of art in itself. Choose fixtures that make a statement, combining form and function. Artistic lighting can range from sculptural pendant lights to bold sconces, adding a layer of luxury and personality to your space.
Focus on Free Standing Bathtubs
Freestanding bathtubs remain the focal point of the bathroom, but this year, they take on an emboldened power stance. Two-tone bathtubs add dramatic flair while light colored bathtubs against a moody backdrop add a level of sophistication and presence. No matter the size or style of bathtub you choose, they’ll invite you to sink in and soak up a little R&R.
As you embrace the trends of 2024, the key is to infuse your personality into every design choice. The bathroom is no longer just a functional space – it’s an opportunity to showcase your unique style and create a retreat tailored to your taste, and our designers can help.
