You’re a home buyer, not a home designer. So when it comes to building your new home from scratch, you may not feel qualified to come up with trending bathroom decor ideas on your own.

That’s where we come in. Lucky for you, we’ve compiled this list of the top must-have bathroom design elements you must incorporate in your new construction home.

Ready to find the 5 designs that are trending in Tampa Bay and which ones you can go without? Then check out this article because we’re giving you the answer to that question and many more. Let’s dive in!

1. Use Different Shades of Color

Here at New Legacy Homes, we use different shades of color to make our bathrooms elegant. For example, some of our bathrooms have detailed flooring of varying shades. Just take a look at the details!

When you visualize an updated bathroom, you may only see in shades of black and white. Yet, it’s a common misconception that color is unimportant to a contemporary design. Instead, we rely on organic color pallettes that evoke a certain atmosphere.

Keep your bathroom’s walls, tile, and furniture neutral. Add in a pop of sage (evokes growth) or cobalt blue (evokes relaxation) in the tile backsplash or with your accessories. Take a look at this example from one of our new South Tampa homes.

2. Vary Textures and Materials

Contemporary design elements are all about tying together natural products with harder elements like steel and wrought iron. That means you shouldn’t shy away from choosing natural finishes for your walls and tiling. Meanwhile, choose “harder” finishes like steel, glass, and marble.

Some examples of natural textures you can incorporate in your trending bathroom decor include wood step stools, bold marble countertops and matching hand towels and rugs.

3. Shed Some (Natural) Light On It

Large windows, open floorplans, and french doors can make even the smallest bathroom look spacious!

Have your home builders choose south- or north-facing windows for optimal all-day lighting. Choose larger windows and doors that offer the maximum opportunity for bringing the outdoors in.

If you don’t have any windows in your bathroom, consider adding a painted canvas or large mirror.

4. Create Tension Between Natural and Industrial Elements

You’ve probably picked up on one of the themes in updated design: the combination of nature with more industrial-style elements. To harp on this element of decor in the bathroom, you should consider getting rough-woven rugs combined with your shiny stainless-steel finishes.

Bring in some plants and plush cotton towels for a spa-like design. Even a simple orchid and candle can help you relax in your trending bathroom.

5. Choose Furniture and Architectural Details with Clean Lines

It’s easy to add clean lines to your updated bathroom design. Choose square or rectangular-shaped mirrors and tiles with angular countertops and open-concept cabinets.

Blend your clean lines with softer, relaxed shapes like the rounded toilet seat or rectangular sheepskin rugs on the floors.
