Accent tiles are an excellent trend for master bathrooms because they can be perfectly paired with any material, color, texture, or pattern. They go best with monochrome bathroom tiles or naturalistic designs. Accent tiles usually come in one pattern that is enough to make the entire bathroom pop. They are perfect for large and small bathrooms and can be installed on the floor or shower walls.

2. Separate Tub Area

If you own a large master bathroom, one of the best design ideas is to separate the tub area. This gives the bathroom a luxurious appearance. If your master bathroom is smaller, you can try achieving this effect by placing a vintage screen near the bathtub to provide more privacy and separate it from the rest of the bathroom.

3. Freestanding Bathtub

One master bedroom trend that will always remain a part of classic and timeless design is a freestanding bathtub. This bathroom element can go with any design and style, making a bathroom so much more elegant and refined. It will always stay in style and can complement other trends well. It is a perfect combination of contemporary and traditional.

4. Corner Bathtub

A corner bathtub is made to provide their owners with the most relaxed and comfortable baths possible. They are spacious, allowing their owners to enjoy bath time, although they require a lot of space to be installed. They add luxury to the master bathroom, and some corner bathtubs can be quite affordable.

5. Double Vanity Sinks

Double vanity sinks are meant to make one bathroom as functional and practical as possible. They are perfect for couples who enjoy sharing their morning routines. They give the bathroom a sophisticated touch and are essential to every spacious bathroom.

As with other rooms, the biggest draw of a master bathroom is plenty of sunlight. Having a lot of windows in the bathroom opens up the space and makes it seem larger. Natural sunlight complements bathrooms, making them appear brighter and more welcoming.

7. Don’t Be Afraid to Add a Pop of Color

Most people keep their bathrooms monochromatic or use only natural color palettes. While natural colors are perfect for a bathroom, you shouldn’t be afraid to add some color. That doesn’t mean making the bathroom complex with a thousand shades and colors but only one accent color to match a natural palette. Adding cheerful, vibrant tiles can be an excellent way to make your bathroom livelier.

8. Brick Walls

Brick is another timeless decor option that fits beautifully in almost any room, even in bathrooms. If you like to keep your bathroom only in simple colors such as white, beige, or gray, you can find a brick color that matches your idea. Hundreds of designs will allow you to incorporate bricks into your bathroom without ruining your desired aesthetic.

9. Add Plants

Plants are always an excellent idea for decorating any room. They can also look amazing as decoration for your master bathroom. Plants make any room seem more comfortable and go perfectly near windows. If you’ve got a large window in your master bathroom, consider using it to display your beautiful, gorgeous plants.

10. LED Lighting

LED lighting is another excellent way to make your master bathroom seem more luxurious. It is usually installed behind the mirror above the sink to provide more lighting. They come in many different colors, which is perfect for matching with the rest of the bathroom interior. LED lighting adds a more modern touch and is great paired with simple and minimalistic bathrooms.
