Unique Tile Installations

“Creative tile installations will be a mainstay in 2024 as consumers aim to infuse more character into their homes. For bathrooms in particular, we love the impact of creating stripes through vertically stacked tiles in alternating colors. A basketweave pattern, as seen in our East Austin remodel, is another fun way to add interest. To achieve this look, alternate between two, three or four vertical stacked tiles and the same number of horizontal stacked tiles.” — Audrey Scheck, Audrey Scheck Design

“Don’t let the small footprint of a powder room keep you from making a big impact. Instead, I love to go bold and incorporate a statement mirror to anchor the space. Look for unique silhouettes or interesting materials that command attention.” — Ashley Ferguson of Ashley Ferguson Interiors

Separate Sinks

“If space allows, ditch the long double vanity and separate the sinks for a total personal space experience. I love the idea of a bathtub between the two, but a tree or vintage coat rack makes for a more interesting bathroom installation.” — Raili Clasen, interior designer and author of Surf Style at Home

“I’m looking forward to incorporating more fixtures with curvature this year. They not only add a contemporary feel to the room, but also create the illusion of a spa-like bathroom, providing a sense of relaxation anyone would want.” — Lindye Galloway, chief creative officer of Lindye Galloway Studio + Shop


Steam Showers

“Consumers are placing increasing priority on products and design that focus on health and wellness. There’s increased interest in spa-like amenities in bathrooms, including steam showers and saunas. Steam showers have been at the top of the list as science has shown they may contribute to allergy relief, lower blood pressure and better sleep.” — Wendy Glaister, interior designer and allied member of ASID

“The powder room is the jewel box of the house and a space to have a little fun and be bold. Here, Lone Park Roman Clay by Portola Paints adds an extra depth to the room and plays with the reflection of the light in the space. We like when the powder room serves as a little surprise for guests as they experience the home.” — Brittany Zwickl, partner and principal designer for Studio Life/Style


Geometric Patterns

“We’re seeing a surge in the popularity of patterns in both flooring and wall designs. The focus isn’t necessarily on colorful pattern designs but on the tile arrangements. Think geometric patterns such as chevron, basketweave and herringbone layouts taking center stage.” — Jessica Dorling, owner and principal designer of Dorling Design Studio


Backlit Mirrors

“Bathrooms are the perfect place to go a bit over the top and showcase your personality by using wallpaper as your hero piece. There is so much fabulous paper in the marketplace that there’s truly something for everyone — from small, classic prints to exotic toiles and florals to mural-like papers similar to what we used here.” — Betsy Burnham, founder and principal of Burnham Design


Plaster Shower Walls

“We’re seeing less tile in the shower and more of the plastered look. If Europeans use plaster for their bathrooms and showers without tile, then we’re going to see more of that catching on as people don’t want to deal with cleaning grout.” — Linda Hayslett, founder of LH.Designs

Dramatic Wet Walls

“Spa-like bathrooms continue to dominate in 2024, but we’ll see drama added in the form of wet walls — entire walls covered in tile or mosaic instead of sheetrock or millwork. Not only do they instantly elevate a bathroom design, they’re also functional — bathing kids or fur-babies with a wet wall surround makes clean-up a lot easier.” — Jeanne Barber, founder of Camden Grace Interiors


Textured Stone

“The trend of bold, veiny stone accents stays strong. Often, we see people wanting to keep their millwork simple, with a feature element of colorful stone that adds visual texture to the space.” — Philip Consalvo, principal at PJCArchitecture
