The 10 Most Popular Bathroom Design Trends of 2017

When selecting our most popular bathroom design trends of 2017, we have plenty to choose from. We’ve worked in hundreds of homes and buildings remodeling bathrooms and kitchens. This year we’ve seen designs from bold flooring to gorgeous accent walls and everything in between. Below, you’ll find our list of 10 most popular bathroom trends.


#10: Pendant Lights

Pendant lighting is common in kitchen designs, but new this year we’re seeing it in bathroom designs too. Adding pendant lighting to a bathroom design is a creative solution to a problem that actually comes down to aesthetics.

Pendant lighting or sconces can light your entire bathroom if the space is small enough. However, if your bathroom is larger, you’ll likely still require additional light sources such as mounted fixtures, recessed lights, track lighting, and ceiling fixtures.


#9: Built-in Lighting

This type of design has been very popular in 2017 with MyHome designers. The streamlined aesthetic offers effective face level lighting, which is ideal for grooming routines. Since it omits the need for pendant or sconces lighting altogether, it’s a favorite for New York City homeowners who like a clean look.


#8: Oversized Sinks

If you’re one of the lucky few who have a large bathroom, you might consider installing an oversized sink. The deeper sink and larger size will keep water from splashing on the countertops. Another good option is a double sink vanity, perfect for performing your morning beauty regimens.


#7: Efficient Storage

If your bathroom feels cramped and you need more storage, you can take advantage of a double vanity (a vanity with plenty of drawer space or built-in shelves to create storage in any small bathroom). Before determining which design option works best, consider all the things you want to store. Know this information you can choose the materials that have the right dimensions and offer a functional design for your space.

#6: Bold Flooring

If you’re looking to give your bathroom design a pop, try bold flooring. One trend that was big in 2017 was the classic black and white, checkered tile pattern. Checkered floors may seem retro, but they can also be contemporary, elegant or rustic. Another trend this year was faux wood floors in the bathroom as this option offers maximum stylishness without any worry of water damage.

#5: Accent Wall

The options for selecting your tiles for your bathroom can be overwhelming. Moreover, it can be expensive. One incredible way to blend in a more expensive tile tile is to use a box or two of pricier tiles as accents. One of the effective places to do this is in a shower stall. One option is a glass mosaic.


#3: Niches

A shower niche holds only one purpose and that is to hold your stuff  –because, let’s face it, no one wants to see all their products unorganized in the corner of the shower floor. A niche can capture your eye and gives your design a little flair. If you have an accent wall, it’s also an opening for you to repeat the tile or pattern to tie the design together.


#2: Subway Tile

If you browse home magazines, you are sure to find designs emphasizing subway tiles. Subway tiles have a long-standing reputation for being a tile choice that coordinates and matches with nearly every style. We don’t see this trend subsiding anytime soon. Subway tiles were extremely popular in 2017 and expect that waves to continue well into next year.

#1: Trendy

The most trendy bathroom designs of 2017 included:

  • bold fixtures,
  • accent walls,
  • adventurous floor designs,
  • natural hues,
  • marble
  • and so much more.

If you are a brazen lover of bright colors or are in love with bold flooring, your bathroom is the best place to take a risk in the name of style. The bathroom is a small enough space that bright and bold materials can be used without over-committing.
