The Top 11 Bathroom Trends of 2024, According to Interior Designers

News flash: Bathrooms don’t have to be boring or sterile looking, especially when you keep the hottest bathroom trends of 2024 in mind during your TikTok-inspired DIY renovation project. Bold patterns, wall-mounted faucets and natural elements are just a few of the design trends we’re seeing surface this year But we wanted to know more, so we consulted multiple interior designers who talked us through what they anticipate seeing more (and less of) in bathroom renovations and we put these ideas to the test.

Yes, the Family Handyman team went as far as to build a bathroom set using the top trends just so you can see them in action. Ready to see what we came up with?

Dual Shower Heads

“Regular single shower heads are losing popularity, as more and more people are opting for the luxury and convenience of dual shower heads,” says interior designer and founder of Meble Furniture, Raf Michalowski.Expand article logo 

Dual shower heads offer double the functionality and enjoyment when it comes to showering, Michalowski adds. In addition to a spa-like, luxurious look and feel, just imagine how clean you and your shower are going to be with double the water pressure coming from multiple directions.

“Go for different spray settings on each shower head for a customized experience,” Michalowski says. “The key to incorporating dual shower heads is proper placement and installation. It should be positioned in a way that allows for comfortable and equal water flow from both heads.”

Open Shower Space

According to the Houzz 2023 Bathroom Trends report, Nearly one in five renovating homeowners choose a doorless shower when renovating their bathroom. This frameless shower screen offers the look of a doorless shower with the water protection of a traditional shower door. An open shower space can give more of a wet-room feel, which is perfectly on-trend. We love that this Vigo option is easy to clean and can be installed seamlessly on either side of your shower.

“‘Wet rooms’ and barrier free showers have been trending, and I think that will continue in 2024,” explains NCIDQ-certified interior designer with Paige Studio, Courtney Batten. “Theyre not just beautiful, but necessary as our population ages since they serve an important role in keeping homeowners in their homes and living independently. I think more homeowners building new or remodeling their homes will be asking for barrier free showers from their designers and contractors.”

Wall-Mounted Faucets

Trying to avoid the cluttered look around your bathroom vanity? A wall-mounted faucet frees up vanity and skin space while adding an upscale hotel vibe to your home bathroom. This wall mounted faucet option is simple in design, yet looks totally chic when fixed to the wall.

“Space saving and sleek, these faucets add a modern touch to the bathroom,” says certified interior designer and founder of Simply Tablecloths Georgina Ross. We couldn’t agree more, and love the look of mounting simple brass or black hardware onto a bathroom wall, especially one with a bold or textured wallpaper.

Freestanding Sinks

“These are becoming a focal point in modern bathroom designs for their aesthetic appeal,” says Georgina. This stone free standing sink blends this trend with design interest in natural elements.

In addition to having a modern aesthetic appeal, freestanding sinks save you precious bathroom space, too. They’re a smart option for small bathrooms, half baths and powder rooms where you don’t have the room or need for a larger vanity. Without a vanity unit or bulky cabinets underneath the sink, your bathroom will feel more open. And if you opt for a freestanding sink in a larger bathroom, you can build in storage space in other clever ways custom to your needs.

Adding Curves

“I think this trend will continue to gain popularity as it adds a unique and elegant touch to bathroom design,” says interior designer and founder of, David Mason. “Whether it’s in the form of a curved vanity or a freestanding bathtub, incorporating curves can instantly elevate the aesthetic of any bathroom.”

One simple way to add curvature to your bathroom is with a curved mirror, like this Umbra option. Its arched top and curved edges add visual interest while its sleek metallic frame provides a finished feel that simple cut glass doesn’t often provide.

“As I can see, curved vanities, mirrors and fixtures soften the overall bathroom aesthetic, creating a more inviting and harmonious space,” Mason says. “So, the shift in 2024 is toward more sculptural and fluid forms, departing from strictly geometric designs, to introduce a sense of artistry and movement in bathroom interiors.”

Choosing Luxe Accessories

“I believe that the bathroom accessories market will continue to expand, offering an array of luxe and functional options for homeowners,” Masonexplains. “From stylish soap dispensers, toothbrush holders and towel racks to high-end shower caddies and baskets, there will be no shortage of options to elevate the bathroom experience. This trend is all about upgrading everyday items into statement pieces that add a touch of luxury and personality to the space.”

We’ve already seen this trend take flight at the beginning of this year, too. Whether you’re thrifting or repurposing trinkets or buying new, staple pieces to add a bit of charm to your bathroom, this trend offers a quick, easy and affordable way to upgrade your space. This jewelry box is a timeless, yet practical, piece that looks great on the counter while helping your bathroom vanity stay clean and clutter free.

Dimmable Lights

OK, who doesn’t love dimmable lights in the bathroom for that spa-like feel? Light a candle, dim the lights, hop in the tub for a relaxing way to unwind after a long day.

“Bathrooms are the perfect space to create ambiance and different moods with lighting. From soft mood lighting for a bubble bath to bright lighting for applying makeup, the technology to create different lighting is getting easier and more budget friendly by the year,” Batten explains.

These gorgeous mid-century wall sconces can be streamlined into just about any decor style. They can be mounted vertically or horizontally and are fully dimmable when used with dimmable bulbs and a compatible dimmer switch. “In 2024 we will see a lot about circadian lighting, which is lighting temperatures that automatically adjust based on the time of day,” Batten adds. “And since bathrooms are used to start and end your day, it’s the perfect space to experiment with this new technology.”

Easy-to-Maintain Tile

“Tiles that are easy to maintain, such as glazed ceramic tiles, are preferred for their resistance to moisture and stains,” Georgina explains. Makes sense to us! Who wants to scrub their bathroom floor every day to keep it looking hygienic? Glossy and glazed tiles, like these ceramic tiles, are easy to clean and look great. Plus, they add a pop of color to your space with a fresh sage hue.

Ceramic tile is easy to maintain, versatile and easy to install. Colorful, polished tile makes a huge design impact in small areas like the bathrooms and other frequently overlooked spaces. The classic rectangular, subway-style shape of these tiles will remain in style for a long time, so it can be updated over the years as you find new looks that are right for you. We like the idea of using these particular tiles as a design accent or over a larger area. They can also be installed on a shower wall.

Bold Patterns

Whether you add it in the form of wallpaper or tile, bold patterns and motifs are here to stay in 2024.“Color is back in for 2024, I believe we will see less of the all white ‘light and airy’ spaces and more clients wanting to infuse color into their spaces,” Batten says. “Bathrooms are the perfect room to experiment with bold color as their smaller scale means a little goes a long way. I think we will see a lot more historic floor patterns and hex tile in personalized designs and colors.”

These bold Mallorca porcelain tiles add a pop of color and a bold geometric design while keeping things feeling fresh. Porcelain tiles are easy to install and maintain, too. If you’re not sure about adding them to the entire floor, these particular tiles can be installed on a shower wall or even a shower floor.

Natural Elements

“Incorporating natural elements like wood accents and plants continues to be a strong trend, creating a serene, spa-likeatmosphere,” Georgina explains. Stone fixtures and elements create an indoor-meets-outdoor vibe, too.

This pebble mosaic has a greenish-blue tint and a satin-smooth finish. With the proper sealant, they are waterproof and can be used as a backsplash in the bathroom or kitchen. They look cool paired with a wooden vanity or countertop and will make you feel at one with nature.

Functional Flooring

Remember when carpet in the bathroom used to be the norm? Wet feet touching fluffy carpet fresh out of the shower seems like a surefire way to produce unwanted mold and mildew. Anyway, if you are looking for functional bathroom flooring that’ll stand up to dog claws and your toddler throwing who-knows-what on it, this cork back option is an ideal choice. We love that this vinyl flooring looks like real wood, yet is waterproof and stain resistant.

Michalowski agrees and says, “Functional flooring options such as cork and bamboo, which bring a warm and natural element to the space, are gaining popularity in bathrooms. I have seen a rise in homeowners opting for non-traditional bathroom flooring materials that not only look beautiful but are also durable and easy to maintain.”

“For instance, people are preferring cork flooring because it is not only soft underfoot but also water resistant and anti-microbial,” Michalowski adds, “making it a perfect choice for bathrooms.”
