When it comes time to unwind at home, you want a spa-like space that feels clean, comfortable and luxurious. For years, high-end designers achieved this look by creating sleek, all-white bathrooms, but we’ve entered a new era for bathroom design. In place of primary bathrooms clad in simple white subway tile, a warmer, more textured aesthetic has emerged. Designers and luxury buyers are gravitating toward primary bathrooms with rich textures and strong contrast. We’ve outlined some of the luxury bathroom trends we’re most excited about.
A STATEMENT IN STONE
Carrera marble, with its light color and soft veining, has long reigned supreme in high-end bathrooms. Today though, high-end buyers are searching for bathrooms with a bit more drama. Bolder varieties like black-and-white viola and arabascato marble have grown in popularity thanks to their defined veining and classic appearance.
Other popular options include natural stone with pink, orange and bronze undertones for added depth. These more textured varieties provide a richer appearance to the space, while maintaining the enduring elegance of stone.
THE PURSUIT OF VANITY
The bathroom vanity offers a small but powerful way to add dimension to your space. In place of the traditional white-toned vanity, there’s been a growing movement toward natural wood. Paired
with a bold marble countertop, a woodgrain vanity offers a rich collection of textures that can make a
bathroom feel both classic and warm.
By carefully choosing the wood grain and stain color, you can achieve a variety of different design styles. For an airier effect, an ash or light stain can brighten up the room, while a darker walnut can help offer additional depth and help ground the space.
TAPPING INTO TEXTURE
A clean, stylish bathroom doesn’t have to feel stark or empty. Appointing your bathroom with rich textures and patterns is a design-tested way to make a bathroom feel both comfortable and lux.
Many designers have opted to incorporate Zellige tiles which are made by hand and offer a rich range of texture and a more organic look.
Combining materials like wood, marble, metal and tile can help anchor your space and offer a more elevated appearance.
