Best fresh bathroom designs

Just as the kitchen went from merely being a room where you prepare food to being a heart-of-the-home space where everyone congregates after a long day, the bathroom has gotten a similar treatment in recent years. Once regarded only as a place where—ahem—essential private things took place, it has now been rebranded into a sanctuary, a luxe space where to pamper oneself, unwind, and relax. It's no surprise that bathroom design has significantly shifted, too.

Plush carpets

Who needs a bath mat when you can have a plush vintage rug? Bathrooms lately started feeling more "decorated" than designed, with items typically found in other rooms seeping into wet areas.

Taps on the wall

With homes getting smaller and smaller, it's no surprise that this clever space-saving trick became a bathroom staple in 2016. This trend was especially popular in weathered brass and black finishes.

Art Deco

Rounded vanities, lacquered wood finishes, and deeply veined colored marbles made their way into bathrooms everywhere, proving that art deco is, in fact, making a comeback.

Square Tiles

We've all had a love affair with traditional subway tiles for years, but this year we saw a different type of subway tile emerge: the square tile with dark grout. Popular in Scandinavian designs, it made its way into bathroom everywhere, like this Brooklyn townhouse.

Statement pieces

The bathroom may not have been the place where to traditionally place your statement modern chairs, but 2016 forced us to reconsider. Why not have statement furniture to appoint our most lavish bath sessions?

Freestanding bath

Whether clawfoot or soaking, freestanding baths blew up our Instagram stats last year as one of the most beloved trends for 2016. It seems showering in bath is no longer a thing—but finding the space for both a tub and shower is a luxury not readily available to all. One can only dream.

Luxr products

And the award goes to… Aésop bath products, for seeping into every single bathroom counter last year. It seems as though everyone wants to get that boutique hotel feel, and why shouldn't they? It's the little luxuries that make life more enjoyable
