Bathroom Ideas for 2023 – Let’s Get Decorating

What better way to start the new year than with a new DIY project? After all, your bathroom is one of the most frequently used rooms in your home. From natural textures to minimalist bathrooms and mixing materials, we take a look at the latest bathroom trends set to make a lasting impression in 2023. No matter the budget—you’re bound to find new bathroom décor inspiration here.


Salvaged Planked Elm (Linda Barker Collection)


Natural Textures

Repurposing elements of the outdoors inside your home can bring warmth into your space. As we continue to spend more time in our homes with hybrid working, decorating the rooms we spend time in becomes more important. Textures such as darker wood can create rich warmth since they offer a more dramatic and luxurious effect, while paler wood effects like our Salvaged Planked Elm promote a Scandi feel—the result is a light and calming bathroom. Sit back and relax.

Beyond wood effect décors, we expect to see a rise in other natural textures such as stone in neutral, subdued colours. Light stone effect designs can instantly create an impact even in small spaces as they naturally open the space. Think of tame greys and pristine whites. Stone effects don’t need to be expensive either—our stone effect wall panels offer the luxury of marble without the heavy cost.



Although life has continued to get busier, we are continuing to spend more time at home due to hybrid working. As a result, you may be looking to maximise serenity in your environment. Minimalist interior design is famous for creating a tranquil, peaceful atmosphere with no room for distractions. Less truly is more.

Taupe Grey and Sage Green wall panels

Taupe Grey (Pure Collection) & Sage Green (Tile Collection)


In 2023, we can expect neutral colour palettes combined with crisp, clear lines to dominate design trends. Clutter will be hidden from view, so that the focus stays on the neutral surfaces. A minimalist bathroom is also a great choice for small rooms as clean, neutral palettes maximise the illusion of space.

Minimalism doesn’t mean you have to opt for white walls, ceilings, and floors. While white is a great, timeless colour for small bathrooms, there are many other colour pallets that can be used to achieve a minimalist look. Our Taupe Grey wall panel, for instance, offers a modern take on minimalist design whilst maintaining a neutral feel overall to perfectly suit your beige bathroom ideas.


Mixing materials

Marble has been a design staple for years, having stood the test of time for centuries in some of the world’s most timeless landmarks. When we think of marble, we think of elegance and luxury. Marble is also versatile because its colour tones range from white to dark and grey and black.


Calacatta Marble (Linda Barker Collection)


In 2023, you can expect to see marble mixed with other natural materials to create depth in the bathroom; for instance, a granite floor with marble walls. The gloss of marble contrasts perfectly with dark matte granite, elevating the bathroom and creating a luxurious yet modern feel. We also expect the rise of marble Victorian bathrooms due to TV shows such as Bridgerton and the coronation of King Charles III. If you prefer neutral tones, our Pure Collection makes a great addition to marble.

Convenience and practicality 

Beyond aesthetics, convenience and practicality will continue to be a driving force behind interior design choices for bathrooms due to the continuation of home working. Wood and stone are still dominating, and they do not have to be inaccessible on a small budget. Our waterproof wall panels come in a wide range of stylish décors and can even mimic marble and stone. They are extremely low maintenance and easy to clean as they do not require grout. All you need is soap and water.
