The Top Bathroom Design Features for 2023

This year has been full of inspiring style, and we love design just as much as you! Do you have an upcoming bathroom renovation in your home? Or, are you planning a small refresh? You’ve come to the right place–we are showcasing a selection of favorites when it comes to bathroom design features. And, as always, we are rounding out the list with some beauty and function with window treatments for your bathroom. Let’s get started scrolling for inspiration…

Wall Statements

If you follow design, you know that accent walls are having a moment. Bold colors, intricate designs, wallpaper and a number of building materials artfully catch your eye no matter where you go. It’s not new–accent walls have been a staple in design for years. They’ve just taken center stage in the last couple. Topping our list of bathroom design features you’ve got to see is the accent wall. Large-scale tile, swirling marble, rustic shiplap…the possibilities are endless.

Lighting Design

A small update with tremendous style, adding lighting into the bathroom adds both beauty and function. Chandeliers are placed above freestanding tubs, vanity walls are adorned with sconces, and mirrors are backlit for added depth.

Custom Vanities

The furniture of the bathroom, your vanity makes a statement all on its own. Is it a painted look you love? Or, does stained wood bring out that organic vibe you love? Some vanities rest on the floor like cabinetry, others have feet like accent furniture. Others simply float in place. Adding even more character is the hardware you choose–matte black or aged brass are both high on the list of popular finishes. Additional details, such as sconces, a tiled wall and shaped mirrors further create the design scene.

Ample Storage

Most of us would agree that you can never have too much storage in a bathroom. Even if your bathrooms are large, you might still have complaints that there doesn’t seem to be enough storage. Two of our favorite ways to increase storage just happen to be on this list. One is to add custom wall built-ins to the space. It’s a great way to store towels and other necessities in jars or baskets, and this adds to the overall look. Another way is the vanity tower. With options for hidden outlets and lots of shelving, these towers are an incredible upgrade for any bathroom.

Split tilt shutters are a gorgeous way to enjoy the natural light and views while maintaining privacy. The bottom portion is closed up, and the top can direct the light in. It’s a San Antonio favorite!
