We love a good bathroom remodel or refresh. If you’re not in a season where you have the time or resources to undergo major home renovations, updating a bathroom is a great way to change things up. You don’t have to move any walls or rip up any floors to refresh your bathroom—although we can help with that if you want! Little changes go a long way, so let’s look at a few simple bathroom design trends you can implement until you’re ready for a larger transformation.


Wallpaper is back, and it’s the perfect pop to upgrade any bathroom. From abstract prints to subtle patterns, we’re certain you can find a wallpaper to fit your design aesthetic. And we’re happy to share that wallpaper has come a long way. Many companies now offer peel-and-stick wallpaper, so you don’t have to go through the messy, time-consuming process associated with traditional wallpaper.

Tip: While you can use wallpaper in any room, we recommend using it in your powder room. Since powder rooms don’t have showers or bathtubs, they experience much less condensation than full baths. This will keep your wallpaper in better condition long term.

Bold Colors

Go big or go home, right? A bathroom is the perfect space to experiment with bolder colors that you might not want in larger spaces. Want a cheery, yellow bathroom? What a moody, black bathroom? You can use bold paint colors, or you can keep the walls neutral and accent with bold colors. Rugs, shower curtains, wall art, and towels are great ways to add color if you’re not quite ready to make your walls bold. Check out this inspiration for bold bathrooms.


Bring life to any bathroom with a few well-placed houseplants. Plus, having plants in your bathroom might remind you to water them! For a full bath, choose plants that do well with humidity. If you’re updating a bathroom that doesn’t get any natural light, faux plants are the way to go. You can even put some plants in your shower.

Which bathroom trend is your favorite? In our opinion, you can’t go wrong with any of them. If you’re ready to invest in a full bathroom remodel, we’d love to help you design your dream bathroom. Contact us today to schedule a design consultation!
