In the custom homebuilding world, the top remodeling trends of 2023 have been all about finding space, deepening our connection with the natural world, and a little bit of self-indulgence. We saw a growing interest in airy, luxury kitchens and momentum grow for energy-efficient upgrades and home electrification (remember when everyone was clamoring for electric cooktops?). But one of the biggest trends we saw this year was the emphasis on high-end bathroom design as more people wanted to bring the spa experience to the home. That’s why, this week, we’re taking a trip back–waaaay back to 2013–to look at bathroom design over the years and how it’s changed. Keep scrolling to commence time travel.
This trio of stylish bathrooms in Providence was completed this year, but the design process started in 2022. With an emphasis on color and exuberant tile choices, these bathrooms are chock full of personality and class. Read about the entire project in the link above!
Not too far from the styles of 2022, this bathroom in Warwick, RI, takes on more of a subtle tone. Clean lines and refined material choices keep this washroom serene and relaxing.
Black and white combos will always be “in,” and this stunning bathroom from 2020 is no exception. Add rich wood tones and warm gray floor tile to the mix, and the results are timelessly stunning.
We couldn’t not add this powder room from the same project–the Keith Harring wallpaper is to die for.
This high-end bathroom from 2019 shows when the popularity of monochrome started to turn the corner. Dark chocolate wood, white subway tile, and cool-gray stone-look floors add a hint of warmth and dynamism to the mix, making this a classic look that will surely pop up again.
Bathroom design over the years has changed quite a bit, and the difference is apparent when comparing the top of the list with this bathroom from 2018. Monochrome was at the height of its popularity here, with bright pops of color left to chic accessories and art.
Remember when greige was all the rage? Well, be amazed! This 2017 project took greige and ran with it, playing with tones of creamy umber in the wood-look floor tile and striated stone accents.
Natural stone will always stay in style, and this custom shower from 2016 shows why. The gradation from charcoal grays to icey whites is simply gorgeous, and the veining in the marble tile adds depth, movement, and intrigue that will go with anything!
Back in 2015, bold statements were made with bold paint colors. This bathroom (again, making spectacular use of natural stone tile, this time with basket-weave mosaics) packs a punch with its velvety black walls. The dark paint feels intelligent, sophisticated, and intimate.
Our journey to the past nears its conclusion as we enter 2014. Beige and gray didn’t quite make the leap to greige yet, but that didn’t mean they couldn’t share the spotlight in this primary bathroom.
We’ve made it! Ten years back in time, and we’ve arrived in 2013. Powerful black stone tile runs up the walls in this curbless shower with square mosaics to match. We love the use of shiplap to break the space up and add a bit of visual complexity, too.
And that wraps up our journey to the past! We hope you’ve enjoyed seeing how bathroom design over the years has changed–and stayed the same, in some cases. Perhaps you’re even feeling a bit inspired and want to bring back greige or black stone showers (style is cyclical, after all). If that’s the case, then Red House is here for you.
