Trends for Bathrooms in 2023

Although interior design trends change only slightly from year to year, the devil is in the details. This year, the desire for natural materials will continue to grow. Bathrooms are becoming more and more like oases of wellness, and this idea is reflected in the fixtures and sanitary objects as well. Washbasins, bathtubs, and showers will naturally remain, but bidets are gaining more focus again, and urinals are becoming more prevalent in various places. These trends mirror the increasing need for comfort and hygiene. Sharp corners are gradually being replaced by round shapes and rounded edges, creating a cozier and more inviting space.

Beyond mainstream solutions, hot tubs and saunas offer ultimate luxury and comfort. With these features, every weekend can turn into a wellness retreat, and the stresses of daily life can be relieved under perfect conditions.

Enclosures and Color Scheme

Instead of a minimalist style, a more subtle play emerges. The alternation between matte and glossy surfaces of the same base color is an extremely effective way to make a room more captivating. Wooden furniture is gaining importance as a counterbalance to the cool tiles and flooring.

There are various reasons for the diversity of tiles and slabs concerning color and style. One reason is cost savings. As a result, large tiles are disappearing, and instead of cold tiles, colors and wallpapers are increasingly used for wall coverings. Those opting for tiles tend to choose smaller tiles with a more artisanal appearance.

Regarding colors, black or anthracite gray is the new white. However, in smaller spaces, this can be overwhelming, so light, warm earth tones provide an alternative. For example, sand beige, pastel ochre yellow, or warm browns.

Indoor plants are also becoming increasingly popular, which is understandable. On the one hand, the green hues blend well with wooden furniture on warm or dark surfaces, giving the room a cozy feeling. Moreover, many plants thrive well in the humid bathroom environment, of which there are plenty here.


In bathrooms, various colors and patterns can be chosen for the floor and walls, but bathtubs typically remain simple and clean. Freestanding models, in particular, are highly popular. These tubs exude gracefulness and are available in various sizes, making them ideal for smaller bathrooms. They fit well with the relaxed spa atmosphere and can easily become the focal point of the room.

However, the simple elegance of bathtubs does not mean that creative ideas are entirely excluded. For instance, the Calabria Black tub offers a strong contrast to a white interior or black exterior elements. In a bright room, it stands out from the furniture, while it seamlessly blends into the surroundings in a room with darker tones. The matte version of the tub also allows for play with the aforementioned light, matte surfaces.

The Carib Black Matt tub is similar in color to the previous one but provides a complete contrast. This cast marble tub is matte black both inside and outside, making it a must-have for modern or loft-style interiors.

Naturally, there are also many white tubs that can seamlessly integrate into any bathroom. Here, the focus is more on the selection of shapes. For example, the Flavia is perfectly rectangular, while the Accord White Matt is airy and oval, with a curved edge. Gloria, on the other hand, stands out for its unique round shape.

For those seeking ultimate relaxation, we also offer a selection of hydro massage bathtubs in various sizes and shapes. With these tubs, you not only bring the spa atmosphere but also the wellness experience to your home.

A freestanding bathtub naturally requires a freestanding faucet as well. Besides the classic silver color, there is also the opportunity to play with the faucet. The Aurum, with its golden surface, is a true gem for the space. The matte black Mamba complements a black tub excellently, while white bathroom accessories provide a tasteful contrast.

Choosing a bathtub may seem straightforward at first glance: simple colors and numerous design possibilities to underscore the room’s ambiance and express one’s own personality.


Walk-in showers are another clear trend in bathroom design. These showers, designed to be level with the floor, exude extreme elegance and cleanliness while offering flexibility in not having to be confined by a bathtub. However, they may not always be possible in smaller bathrooms.

For such cases, shower trays or complete shower cabins are suitable, including curved or rectangular options that can be placed in a corner. The selection is vast, ensuring a suitable solution for every taste and space.

Regardless of whether you opt for a walk-in shower or a shower tray, it’s worth considering the shower panel. In addition to the usual silver and inox colors, there are daring variations like the black matte Mariner shower panel or the bronze-colored Mona shower panel. This departure from the ordinary is the perfect way to break up the minimalist style of a simple bathroom and add a luxurious touch.

Bathing or Showering?

The eternal dilemma lies in choosing between a bathtub and a shower. Current trends offer both innovative freestanding bathtubs and modern walk-in showers, which are trendy and elegant. In the past, the decision was dependent on the bathroom’s size: a shower for small spaces and a bathtub for larger spaces. However, today it’s no longer that straightforward. Showers can be spacious and large, while bathtubs can appear delicate and compact through thinner materials.

Ultimately, it’s a personal decision depending on individual preferences. With various hybrid solutions, we can even enhance our comfort further. If there is enough space, installing a walk-in shower next to a freestanding bathtub is a great idea. This way, you can quickly take a shower while still enjoying a relaxing bath. Another option is to purchase a shower screen for a wall-mounted bathtub. This allows you to shower without inconveniences and still have the option of enjoying a relaxing bath.

Faucets for a Luxurious Experience

When designing bathrooms, striking a balance between minimalism and maximalism can be challenging. One way to maintain this delicate balance is by combining the perfect sink with the appropriate faucet.

Sinks, much like bathtubs, are trendy, especially freestanding solutions with countertops. The colors and shapes remain simple and clear, but it is precisely these characteristics that allow for integrating eye-catching faucets. This can elevate the room’s atmosphere, break the monotony of minimalism, and emphasize one’s individuality.

There are vessel sinks with a black exterior and a white interior or vice versa, as well as entirely white or black variations. The shapes range from square to round, with the Iris porcelain sink standing out with its unique triangular shape and rounded corners.

Elegant faucets in black, gold, or copper provide a luxurious feeling and avoid clutter. They also offer the opportunity to play with modern, sharp surface transitions and soft, rounded edges.

For a classic-luxurious ambiance, the modern, flat, gold-colored faucets of the Aurum collection are suitable in combination with a white sink. However, the golden color also pairs well with black. If you want to create a mysterious, unobtrusive, yet elegant space, this combination is an excellent choice.

The Mamba collection offers a similar style with a fully matte finish. When combined with a matte sink, these faucets elegantly recede into the background, allowing tiles, wall patterns, or furniture to dominate the bathroom. For those who want to emphasize this area of the room particularly, the Umbra collection can be chosen, where the faucet combines black and bronze.

Planning is Worth It

While trends change slowly, some solutions become increasingly unpopular. What someone may like today might be problematic when selling the house later. Fashion often follows our taste and shapes it at the same time.

White bathrooms with floor-to-ceiling tiles are a thing of the past. While they were born out of the need for simplicity and straightforwardness, they now appear too sterile and dull. Additionally, every tiny bit of dirt shows immediately, making cleaning cumbersome.

The extremes of minimalism and maximalism are also gradually fading. Minimalism, born out of simplicity, often appears too uniform and leaves little room for individual design. In its place, maximalism has emerged, which can often feel overly cluttered and overwhelming. The challenge lies in creating a perfect transition between both styles. This could be achieved, for example, by combining matte and glossy surfaces or choosing a differently colored faucet or shower wall. Using 2 or 3 recurring color tones instead of a dominant color can also alter the bathroom’s mood.

Wood-look coverings were very popular in recent years. They combine the desired water resistance in wet areas with the pleasant appearance of wood. However, they are currently less in trend, especially for floors and walls.

True luxury in the bathroom requires careful planning: Thoughtful selection of furniture, sinks, cabinets, and accessories based on a concept is essential. The incorporation of premium and luxurious products in your bathroom design is of utmost importance, and this is where Wellis comes into play as a dependable destination.
