In 2023 we’re looking at reinvigorated classic designs, contemporary getaways, and timeless functionality in the shower from brands like House of Rohl, Kohler, Grohe, Graff, and more.

It’s no secret that many of us are yearning to enjoy some extravagant trappings from bygone eras, but with the functionality and benefits of modern fixtures. Vibrant wallpaper, mosaic tiling, and luxurious english gold fixtures give this upscale bathroom the feeling of being transported to a grand royal palace. Perrin & Rowe’s Georgian Era collection is inspired by English art and architecture of the 18th and 19th centuries with elegant detailing and traditional silhouettes.
Your Elegant Escape
To travel forward in time, next we’ll look at a more Victorian-inspired full bathroom from Kohler . Light and dark walls, tiles, and fixtures create a moody atmosphere fit for a queen, with even the toilet and tub in a coordinated black finish.. Brushed brass fixtures from the Artifacts collection bring a pop of brightness and layer the traditional vibe keeping the room a consistent and immersive escape.
Also, did you know shower pipe kits like this are great for retrofitting your current shower system? That means no knocking down walls and you can keep your current valves.
Bright Spacious Getaway
This romantic shower for two is perfect for a couple who enjoys being together but also appreciates their personal space, by having two separate shower systems in the large alcove. We also love the marbled tile and the seamless storage keeping the feel of the room spacious but beautiful and functional. The polished nickel fixtures from the Tresa Collection by Brizo complete the classical feel of this spacious showering space.
Technology spotlight: Smart Showering
We can’t NOT mention the huge innovations in technology for the shower (in fact, we already wrote about this in 2022, wow!). Smart showering gives you total control over your showering experience PLUS a sleek design. The hot system at the moment is Kohler Anthem, which allows total control over your showering experience including water temperature, showerheads, and even control music through built-in WiFi.
Making a Statement
To pair with the Anthem shower controls, we love the oh-so-versatile Statement fixtures. Seamless functionality and long lasting quality mean this alpine vibe bathroom stays a getaway from the pressures of the outside world for many years to come.
There’s just so much to love about designs that never go out of style, timeless subway tile and matte black fixtures make this bathroom an instant classic sure to appeal not only this decade but for years to come. Inspired by the style of 1920s Art Nouveau, Locarno fixtures by Hansgrohe bring an on-trend air of glamour to this stunning bathroom.
Rose Gold Dreams
This rose gold bathroom from Graff manages to bring fresh whimsy to modern minimalist bathroom design. With the contemporary styled Incanto Collection fixtures in unique warm tones and a mix of large and small tile this bath pushes expectations for what cutting edge design can be by breathing life and joy into a minimalist bathroom.
Singing in the Rain
Rainshowers are a must for the modern shower renovation. They provide a luxurious cascade of water that will make you feel like you’re standing under an actual downpour with a steady, gentle flow of water that is sure to relax your mind and body while washing away stress and tension. This ceiling mounted rainshower head from Dornbracht is even built with a descaling system to minimize the need for cleaning, always a win in our books!
