Today’s Bathroom Trends

Before you start planning your bathroom cabinets, get inspired by checking out today’s bathroom looks and trends. Like kitchen cabinets, bathroom cabinets can either date a home or elevate its appearance. Trends tend to shift over time, especially when it comes to cabinets and home furnishings, and it doesn’t take an eagle eye to date a bathroom’s decade by its cabinets.


The 2023 trend outlooks for home designs are continuing to evolve just as they always have and here are just a few designers say to look out for.

Nature-Inspired Looks

From bathroom plants to clean wood cabinet designs, designers are continuing to look for ways to create a seamless transition between a bathroom and the beauty of the great outdoors. Think understated earth tones, natural wood, and simple hardware designs.

Spa-Like Spaces

To create the spa feeling in a home, designers are embracing clean, bright, and simple designs. Marble details are becoming more prominent in today’s spa-inspired designs as well.

Gold Hardware

The copper trend that dominated bathroom designs over the past few years has run its course. In its place, the bright contrast of gold fixtures and hardware is quickly becoming the most coveted look for modern bathroom designs.

Contemporary Colors

Over the past decade, millennial pink and understated grays reigned supreme. In 2023, we’ll see the colors of modern home designs begin to shift toward more saturated forest hues and warm autumn shades from gold to deep espresso.

Other Things to Consider for Your Bathroom Cabinets

Here are a few more things to consider when choosing your new bathroom cabinets!


Before getting started on your new cabinet design, take some time to contemplate your storage needs. One of the most common bathroom struggles is a lack of adequate cabinet space, leading to clutter and making a bathroom seem cramped.


Today’s bathroom cabinet designs have come a long way in terms of custom storage solutions. Think about the type of storage you have before the remodel and its functionality and be prepared to discuss your needs with your cabinet design team.


You may also wish to incorporate open shelving to store attractive toiletry bottles, rolled towels, plants, and other decorative details.


Don’t feel limited by your current spatial configuration. New bathroom cabinet installation is a perfect time to think about rearranging your bathroom layout.


As you plan, it is encouraged to reflect on what features will help create a space you love and how the area is typically used when creating your new layout.


A cabinet designer can work with you to change the layout of your bathroom and install your new cabinets in any configuration you like.

Budget Concerns

One of the benefits of working with Boca Cabinets is that we offer high-quality custom cabinet installation at an affordable price.


If choosing bathroom cabinets that fit a certain budget is one of your priorities, we can work with you to help you choose cabinets that work for your budget concerns.

Know Your Tastes

Your cabinets are meant to be more than just functional; they should also be aesthetically pleasing and show off your style.


Narrowing down your options and deciding what would look perfect in the bathroom space starts with a few key questions:


  • Do you prefer a large wood cabinet or a smaller medicine style?
  • Do you want something ornate or a more minimalist and simpler look?
  • Would paint or wood grain look better?

What Are Your Needs?

Your needs will expand beyond storage capacity, and you can ask yourself whether you need a freestanding unit or cabinets attached to the wall.


Will you need scratch-resistant surfaces or special features like hinges that close softly?


How much maintenance do you want to have for cleaning and upkeep?


You will also need to be aware of your bathroom's width, height, and length. Notate the dimensions in accordance with the location of water and electrical fixtures to ensure the cabinets you choose will be appropriate for your space.

Putting It All Together

Once you’ve decided on a basic layout and look for your bathroom cabinets, it’s time to put it all together and custom design your cabinets. Decide on a wood grain and material for your cabinets and choose your wood stain color.


Do you envision your bathroom with dark cabinetry or a bright minimalist look? Next, determine if you want frameless or framed cabinet doors. Finally, choose your bathroom countertops and hardware designs.

Here are just a few of the cabinet stains and colors you’ll get to choose from:


  • Chocolate maple glazed
  • Charleston saddle
  • Mocha maple glazed
  • Hazel maple
  • Almond maple
  • Java coffee maple
  • Castle gray

Bathroom Countertops

We offer a wide range of countertop designs to complete the look of your new bathroom cabinets. We’ll work with you to help you choose a bathroom countertop that blends seamlessly with your bathroom design.


Customize your bathroom countertops with quartz, marble, or granite, then choose from eased, round-over, double round-over, ogee, and beveled designs.
