What Will Be The Leading Bathroom Trend Designs For 2024?

It’s drawing close to the end of the year, and it’s a traditional time to reflect on the past 12 months and also make plans for the future. If your plans for next year include renovating the bathroom, it’s a good time to check out what the latest trends will be. Here’s a look ahead to the biggest bathroom styles and innovations for 2024.

Water recycling showers

As the trend for water-intensive spa bathrooms with multi-jet hydrotherapy showers, power showers, or simply longer or more frequent showers and pampering sessions grows, so does the need to conserve water supplies. Water scarcity caused by global heating and rising bills have led to the rise of the water recycling shower.

These are eco-friendly systems that are designed to capture, filter, and reuse water used during your shower. These systems typically use a quarter of the water and a third of the energy of traditional showers. This can lead to cost savings of up to 65% per year, depending on how heavily the shower is used.

The potential savings to be made with a water recycling shower can easily outweigh the initial investment. The showers have all the standard features of regular high-end showers, including adjustable water pressure, temperature control, and a range of optional fittings and fixtures such as a light bulb door knob.

AI technology

The relentless march of artificial intelligence (AI) technology will embrace bathroom trends during 2024. From visualisation tools to help you design the perfect bathroom for your home, to smart mirrors that can tell you the time and give the weather forecast, bathroom technology is fast becoming a standard feature.

Smart privacy glass is another rising trend that is particularly well suited to bathrooms. This is a type of glass that can switch from transparent to opaque at the touch of a button or the command of a voice. This eliminates the need for a troublesome blind or curtains, which are prone to developing mould and mildew in the humid bathroom environment.

Smart glass can even be used to project moving images, allowing more sophisticated bathroom entertainment systems than have previously been possible due to the issues with damp.

Biodynamic lighting

Biodynamic lighting is an intelligent lighting system that produces optimum lighting conditions for our circadian rhythm. This is our natural inner body clock that is aligned to the rising and setting of the sun. Biodynamic lighting is responsive to the changes in light temperature, meaning that it changes from cool to warm tones as the day progresses.

This mimics the effects of natural daylight that humans are programmed to respond to, meaning that it is much easier for us to feel ready for sleep at night and fully awake during the day. Too much poorly adjusted artificial light during the winter can leave us feeling tired, irritable, and low in spirits. 

In the bathroom where we are increasing spending time not just to carry out routine tasks but also to unwind and even meditate, the right lighting levels are now at the forefront of design schemes.
