Ideas for a Sensational New Bathroom DesignReady for an update to your bathroom? The most in-demand designs for the bathroom in 2017 are different enough to give you a refresh that's on-trend but stand the test of time too. Here are 7 you won't want to miss.
1. Mixed Material
Wood with glass or stone with fuzzy fabrics--it's all about mixing up the textures and finishes in your bathroom spaces. These form a great foundation for your bathroom decor without being overbearing.

Texture on the wall is hot in 2017. Tile is an easy way to get it. A raised geometric or organic wave introduces interest and adds a vocal point to the room. Texture on the shower wall is particularly interesting.
Vintage has been a hot trend for a couple of years--vintage is never really out of style. Vintage tile specifically is a focus this year. Tile has a rich history to choose from. More series that hint at the past are becoming available and traditional favorites have always been available.
4. Darker Colors
Lighter pastels were big the last couple of years, and the shift is toward darker colors now. Look for darker greens, blues, and even chalky blacks. High contrast will continue to be an excellent choice, especially black and white.

5. Free-Standing Tubs
Get the picture of the clawfoot tub out of your mind because there are a lot more options available this year and your bathroom can't do without one. Streamlined infinity tubs or modern bowl-like tubs set in a wood stand are just a few of the new styles. A free-standing tub gives you the opportunity to create a stunning feature wall behind it for an upscale look.
6. Patterned Tile
Patterns printed on tile and patterns created with tile are hot. Herringbone is everywhere. Narrow wood planks are a popular material for this pattern, but planks in other materials like stone or cement look.
Lighting makes the room. It sets the mood. But it's not just the light that matters--it's also the fixture. 2017 is big on chandeliers in the bathroom. Put it over the tub then add some sconces to the vanity and you'll have it all.
