Remodeling your bathroom is an excellent way to freshen up your living spaces or make your house more functional for your needs. Bathrooms serve many purposes in our lives. However, we use bathroom mirrors to get ready for the day, sinks to wash our hands and teeth, bathtubs to unwind ourselves, and so much more. Improve your daily routine by upgrading your bathroom with these cost-effective St. Louis bathroom trends of 2023. 

Go All-Neutral

Painting your bathroom or updating fixtures are some of the easiest, most cost-effective ways to breathe new life into your bathroom. Bright, bold colors are still popular, however, St. Louis is keeping it simple in 2023 by incorporating shades of gray, black, and white into their bathroom aesthetics.

Neutral colors are better for overhead lighting. Light can bounce off bright and bold colors in your decorations, which can make your mirror reflections appear much harsher. Darks, lights, and grays soften the light…which makes for a softer reflection!  

Ditch the Tub for A Shower

There’s the age-old debate: tub or not tub? Showers are more practical than tubs for families who are no longer need to bathe young children. Taking a shower is more time efficient and requires less water. 

As a result, empty nesters and people aging in place are trading in their tubs for walk-in showers. 

 Ditching the tub can also reinvigorate the vibe of your room. There are more options for personalizing the look and feel of your shower when compared to a bathtub. The options for tiling, shelving, and curtains are endless!

Go With Stone

Stone tiles are a growing bathroom trend in St. Louis, as many homeowners prefer textured materials in 2023. Since neutral colors are the top fad, most homes are installing slate in their bathrooms.

 For one, this stone material is easy to clean. However, make sure it is sealed properly by having it installed by a licensed professional!

Plus, its dark hues provide a dramatic tone to the overall bathroom. Granite and engineered stone, live quartz are very popular. These are available in a wider variety of colors if you’re looking for something less neutral.

Wallpaper Is Back

This interior design staple from years past is making its return and St. Louis homeowners are embracing it. This time around, wallpaper isn’t being used on multiple walls or full rooms, instead homeowners are using it as a highlight or accent to the room. Bathrooms are a perfect space to use wallpaper to show off some personality or style. 

Removable or peel and stick wallpaper is a great choice for this type of application because it’s easy to remove when you’re ready to make a change.

Keep Them Separated

Nothing is worse than stumbling over your partner or other family members as you try to get ready. St. Louis homeowners agree: single sinks are no longer cutting it. Instead, they’re doubling up on sinks and in certain instances homeowners are placing sinks in separate areas of the bathroom. In fact, some are even taking down walls to extend the bathroom just to accommodate a better traffic flow. Other personalizations include new closet spaces, extra vanities, and a closed-off toilet. Dream up your ideal design, and make it happen this year!
