5 Bathroom Trends to Consider for Your Next Renovation

We’re excited to talk about some of our favorite interior design trends that are making waves in bathroom design this year. Whether you’re planning a complete bathroom renovation or a simple refresh, these trends will help you elevate your space to new heights of style and functionality.

2024 Bathroom Trends

Japanese Wet rooms & Doorless Showers 

Japanese wet rooms have emerged in American bathrooms in response to the rise of minimalism and personal wellness. By combining the tub and shower in one enclosed space, it creates a more spacious atmosphere and spa-like experience. If you’re not quite ready for a full wet room, doorless showers offer a visually stunning alternative that also promotes relaxation.

Free standing tubs

While some bathroom design trends can become outdated, freestanding tubs are an example of a timeless interior design choice that will never go out of style. There are so many styles to choose from and they help create a more airy and relaxing bath experience.

Steam showers

One of the prominent bathroom trends we see clients wanting is a spa-like atmosphere, not just for aesthetics, but to support overall wellness. There are many benefits to steam showers but a few include improved metabolism, circulation, detoxification, stress-management, and respiratory health. We designed this client’s steam shower with a transom-style glass panel at the top to regulate the steam when in use.

Bold Paint & Wallpaper

At our interior design firm, we love crafting vibrant bathrooms for our clients! Nothing tells a client’s unique story quite like bold color choices and playful patterns. Bold bathrooms are right up our alley, and you can explore more of our projects in this blog post on bathrooms.

Aging in place 

In the last two decades, we’ve seen a significant rise in using the aging in place approach in interior design, which focuses on design elements that adapt to people’s evolving needs and abilities over time. For example, in this bathroom project, we integrated non-slip tile, a curbless shower, and accessible bathtub, ensuring both aesthetics and long-term safety.

outdoor living and outdoor furniture and interior design by Kirkendall Design in Tulsa, Oklahoma

As the temperatures rise and the Oklahoma sun begins to shine, it’s time to turn our attention to our outdoor living areas. Here at Kirkendall Design, we love creating outdoor spaces that are an extension of our client’s homes. Around this same time last year, we wrote a blog post about how spending time outdoors can work wonders for reducing stress, boosting creativity, and lifting spirits. This is precisely why we love to provide design services for outdoor spaces in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and beyond!

In one of our recent interior design projects, we had the pleasure of curating multiple outdoor living spaces for a client’s second home in Silverthorne, Colorado. Our client was after outdoor furniture that was more unique, comfortable and would last the test of time and weather. That’s where our exclusive partnerships in the furniture industry came into play.
