5 Bathroom Trends From Instagram That'll Look Like You Hired a Designer
We all wish our homes looked like they were touched by the magic wand of a designer. But the reality, especially now that many of us have been spending massive amounts of time at home, is that our personal spaces are looking messier than ever—especially our bathrooms.
Well, our Instagram trend report is here to bring you five luxe accents that will make it look like a pro pulled it all together. From bright brass accents to exotic textiles to bathtub chandeliers (yes, you read that right), our top picks from Instagram will make it harder than ever to turn down bath time.
1. Long brass drawer pulls
If your bathroom hardware is more than a little out of date, look no further than this classic and chic upgrade from @dotandpop. As if the sleek brass weren’t enough, these extra-long pulls take this bathroom design to the next level—and make it look way more expensive than it actually is.
“Brass hardware is hugely popular right now because it elevates any bathroom instantly,” says Sasha Dudley of Interiors by Sasha. “Replacing outdated chrome hardware [with] brass refreshes and modernizes the bathroom, and makes it feel much warmer. Long brass drawer [pulls] are especially trending right now because they bring the sleek and modern without feeling sterile.”
2. Sage-green vanity
From couches to cabinets, green seems to be everywhere this year—but there’s still nothing quite like the queenly of-the-moment vibes of these sage-green cabinets from @mydiyhappyhome.
“Sage-green cabinetry has been trending in kitchens for a couple years now and has finally found its way into the bathroom,” says Dudley. “Sage green feels fresh, organic, and inviting. It also looks great with brass or matte-black hardware.”

3. Moroccan-style rugs
We all love a good bath mat, but this North African–influenced rug from @anitayokota goes above and beyond the normal threads on your bathroom floor.
“Moroccan-style rugs get my vote every time,” says set designer Dejon Gee, who insists that their power to transform a bathroom is positively magical. “This trend is so popular because it makes a space look like it's been put together over time."

4. Bathtub chandelier
If you really want to go all-out luxe this season, then a statement piece like this trending bathtub chandelier from @mmlighting might be just the thing.
“The easiest way to make your bathroom feel like you hired a designer? Add a bathtub chandelier,” says Dudley. “Bathtub chandeliers are here to stay, and there’s nothing more inviting than the glow of a chandelier over a bubble bath. You can go boho, glam, modern, minimal, whatever you want. My pro tip: Get a dimmer. I promise, after a long day you'll thank me. No candles needed.”

5. Minimalist floating shelves
Mixing and matching the essentials with extra glam is just one of those things designers excel at. But the rest of us? Not so much. Somehow, these minimalist floating shelves from @themerrythought are actually making it possible.
“Floating shelves are huge,” says Dudley. “I love adding natural wood ones in the bathroom to soften the space. They’re also a great place for jars of toiletries, a stack of hand towels, or a couple decorative items.”
