11 Burned Bathroom Trends Designers Are Tired Of

Dated tilework

At some point in the past, everything was chevroned. Recently, that has been linked more to bathrooms, but according to Youngblood, that’s over now. The old-fashioned chevron tile reminds me of the 2010s, and that doesn’t really fit the whole organic and calming vibe we’re currently into. According to Youngblood, that’s something that has to go.

But Youngblood isn’t the only one that feels this way, as Wahler also feels that the white subway tiles are bound to make an exit this year. White subway tiles with that black grout and geometric approach had their time. Now, it seems that softer and seamless tiles are the future.

Also, Christine Vroom from Christine Vroom Interiors strongly agrees. “I’m ready to see the standard white subway tile taking the back seat. We will all look back on it and wished for more innovation, versus this type of boring, white rectangles. There are so many and varied textures, colors, shapes, sizes, and even patterns out there, that settling for that white subway tile should become a thing of the past.”

  1. Well this is great, who has the money to remodel their bathrooms every 5-10 years at $10k each, so not practical

  2. Guess what the new trend is everybody? It’s called do it your way!!! Don’t listen to all the trends that make you feel like your bathroom is less than. I love doing things my way! That’s what makes me feel the best. You certainly do not have to go out and spend a bunch of money just to have a bathroom that is up to date, according to something you see online or read in a magazine.

  3. Some of the things are definitely relevant and out dated. However, I definitely disagree with a few things and just take them as someone else’s opinion:
    JET TUBS – I replaced a regular tub with a jet tub. It fit in the same space and the maintenance is no more trouble than that on the old tub. Plus, I enjoy it from the few times that I use it.
    FRAMELESS MIRRORS – The usefulness of the large frameless mirror out does any current fashion trend. They’re great.
    DOUBLE SINKS – not sure what you’re talking about here. The additional counter space that comes with a double sink is a very welcomed advantage.

  4. Spend a ton of money upgrading your bathroom that was upgraded five years ago then find out that, in one year, it is too dated and must be upgraded again. Cars don’t depreciate that fast.
