This year saw a ton of trends in bathroom design
, from decorative furniture and show-stopping mirrors to bright neons and beautiful artwork. The runway and the rest of the home were very influential in bathroom but relaxing spa decor was a unanimous hit. As we move into 2014, get ready for spa-inspired luxury to completely take over the bathroom!
In the past several years we have seen trendy, bright colors everywhere from fashion to interior design. In 2013, it peaked in bathroom decor with neon colors
splashed across walls, bathtubs, towels, and bathroom accessories. In 2014, look for bathroom colors to become softer and more muted. Warm creams and more subdued but cozy purples, greens, and blues lend themselves to a more serene and spa-like atmosphere. The bathrooms from Benjamin Moore above and Decor Pad below are perfect examples of this trendy idea.
We saw a lot of incredible concept ideas merging bathroom design with electronics in 2013. Throughout 2014, expect to see more of these great ideas implemented into hotel and residential bathrooms as more products hit the market and prices begin to drop. We love this Kohler Moxie Speaker Shower Head whose bluetooth enable speakers ensure you won't be the only one singing in the shower. Master control screens like this one from Master Faucet are also a popular item for next year. They precisely adjust water temperature plus lighting, aromatherapy scents, and other bathroom luxuries.
2013 was the year of the chandelier in the bathroom. While we hope this trend is here to stay, accent lighting in the bathroom will definitely be on the rise in 2014. Ambient lighting beneath vanities or mirrors, along bathroom shelving, and around the bathtub add dimension to even the smallest of spaces. We love these examples from Salon Blue Ridge and Bathroom Designs Ideas, above. While candlelight is always an important component for bathrooms, look for luxurious candelabras gracing bathroom vanities and the edge of bathtubs like these beautiful ones featured on Katie O Chicago and Pinterest.
Luxuriously large showers and bath tubs are all the craze in 2014. During renovations, expect to see less shower curtains and shower doors in favor of open showers in master baths, like this open green bathroom featured on About.com. On the other hand, our favorite bathroom design trend of 2014 is that the curved shower curtain rod
will (finally!) be found in every house in America! These brilliant inventions provide more elbow room while preventing wet shower curtains from sticking to your clean body, like this stunning bathroom from Moen.
Finally, plants and flowers are always trendy in any part of the house no matter what year it is!
