Bathrooms, small or large, are increasingly getting their place among the favorite rooms. It’s easy to see why: they are private little sanctuaries, and with some touch-ups, you can easily create a place for relaxation and recharging.

Modern bathrooms do require significant investments, but you can do some touch-ups, updates on the existing ones, with the right colors and accessories. And if you’re planning to sell your house or an apartment, redoing your bathroom can increase the value, now more than ever. So let’s see which trends are the most popular, so you can use them as inspiration for revamping your bathroom.

Having a statement or an accent wall will give your bathroom more depth. Those walls are usually made from a different material or color to contrast against the rest of your bathroom. And speaking of colors, modern bathrooms allow you to express yourself, and the easiest way to do so is to pick your favorite shades and paint at least one accent wall. Keep in mind that bathrooms go best with colors you can find in nature, from greens to grays, but one of the most unexpected colors is a vibrant orange. If you can’t afford marble, brick, mosaic tile, natural stone, add a DIY project to your list and paint the bathroom yourself.

From small chandeliers to hanging bulbs, never underestimate the power of good lighting. Since most bathrooms have vanity spaces, it’s only natural to give them more light. Experiment to see what feels right for you to get the most out of your restroom.

Turning the bathroom into a spa is an ongoing trend. It doesn’t mean that you need to make significant and expensive changes. Rely on candles, plants, and proper lighting to get the most out of the bathroom. Waterfall showers and white light color accents will make you feel like you’re in a fairytale while relaxing in your old bath turned into dreamy-like space.

Bathrooms were all about stone, tile, and steel until houseplants decided to give this room a healthy makeover. Even a small houseplant on the countertop can make the area more vibrant and alive. Plants make space look more viable and energetic, so throw in an orchid or two, or perhaps some pothos to add some air-purifying power to your bathroom or even something as plain as basil can do wonders for your space.

Music is a well-known cure for stress. Adding small speakers and sounds of rain or ocean waves is a great way to connect with nature further. We are at the point where bathrooms are looking more like tiny yoga studios, and you’re one step away from it. Now it’s time to think about hidden storages and decluttering.

Cabinets, vanities, shelves, should stay hidden. And while we’re talking storage, use any spare time to get read of all the unnecessary things you accumulated over the past year or so. Switching to homemade products to keep the bathroom clean and fresh is money saving and healthier options. As long as your personal and cleaning products stay behind the cabinet doors, your bathroom can be a place for relaxing and enjoying the moment. It goes hand in hand with a new approach to minimalism, smaller furniture, and more space for mirrors, windows, and plants.

It is harder to work with smaller bathrooms. Still, at the same time, you can splurge on more luxurious and expensive materials that are more affordable, giving you the potential for emphasized surfaces, tiles, and unique designs for the sinks. Create a wall with hanging plants and use every inch of the space.

In the end, a clean and neat bathroom, more in touch with nature, and your personal decor preferences is just what you need to create a relaxing and unique room. Just a touch of fresh paint and a large mirror, with some greenery, will do wonders!
