All-White Bathrooms Are Getting Drenched in Color

Darker cabinets, wallpaper, and patterned tiles are top trends this year.

All-white bathrooms were once celebrated for their clean lines, simplicity, and spa-like aura. But such muted designs are now falling to the wayside in favor of more color, texture, and patterns. Dark cabinets, wallpaper, and patterned tiles are top bathroom trends this year, according to the latest survey from Fixr(link is external), an online home remodeling resource. Fixr surveyed 60 design experts to find out the hottest bathroom aesthetics.

Darker cabinets: Cabinets made from natural materials that provide a grainier, wood-like aesthetic are gaining favor. Japandi and Wabi-sabi styles, which emphasize natural materials, are inspiring some of these wood tones. The wood can have unique variations to help create contrast against otherwise mostly white finishes.

Backlit mirrors: Nearly half of the designers believe backlit mirrors, which provide light around their perimeter, will be popular this year. “A backlit mirror works two-fold: It offers ambient lighting to the room, which is perfect for relaxing … but also serves as task lighting,” Fixr notes in its report. Many of these mirrors also include features like anti-fogging and magnifiers.

Patterned tiles: Homeowners are showing a willingness to experiment with bolder choices for their floors and walls. Patterned and textured tile and wall coverings are bringing added dimension and depth to spaces. Thirty-six percent of designers called this the biggest bathroom trend of the year. The tile patterns may be geometric, such as hexagons and herringbone, or vintage, such as an octagon dot pattern. Fixr also notes that marble tiles are coming in many different colors and patterns, such as black marble with contrasting white veining.
