6 Bathroom Design Trends (2024 Edition)

6 Bathroom Design Trends (2024 Edition)

As we move into 2024, the intersection of luxury and functionality in bathroom design has never been more prominent. This year, the focus is on the finer details that elevate the overall experience, from the tapware colour to the design of shower heads, choosing a short basin mixer or tall basin mixer, and even the humble robe hook. Here, we discuss six key trends that are setting the tone for luxurious bathrooms in 2024. 

1. The Rise of Bold Colours 

Bold, eye-catching colours are in for 2024, and matte black tapware is proving to be a popular choice for those who want a refined and contemporary look that stands the test of time. This matte black trend now encompasses a wider array of bathroom fixtures, including shower heads, mixer taps, and accessories, creating a unified and elegant aesthetic. Its versatility is unmatched, effortlessly complementing a variety of materials and colours.

2. Warm Metallics Make a Comeback

This year sees the resurgence of warm metallics like brushed brass and vintage antique bras, infusing bathrooms with a touch of warmth and luxury. They add a gentle glow to your bathroom, creating an inviting atmosphere. Think of these finishes as the perfect accents – like jewellery for your bathroom – enhancing the space with subtle sophistication. From an antique brass basin mixer to a brass gold wall spout, warm metallics are leading the charge in 2024 bathroom design trends. We particularly love the Alma tapware range, featuring one of the biggest selections of brushed brass gold, and vintage antique gold tapware.
