Bathroom Trend for 2019/2020
THE BATHROOM TRENDS TO KEEP ON YOUR RADAR IN 2019/2020
BIG IMPRESSIONS IN SMALL SPACES
Small spaces like powder rooms excel as a canvas for a singular, splashy statement. A high-contrast, large-scale wallpaper expands a small space and infuses it with an artful attitude.
A NEUTRAL PALETTE
We love a classic bathroom and think it’s always on trend to have something that works for years to come. To keep it feeling modern we love using a monochromatic element throughout the whole space. For example, using all of one colour or material (such as the colour green or all marble tile) is a great way to achieve this, classic tile and motifs can be incorporated still but using all of one material creates a fun jewel box-like look to the space. You can still stay neutral and make it feel like something really special.
BOLD BLACK BATHROOMS
The spa-inspired bathroom trend has officially returned–back to the spa, that is. These days it’s all about bold, dark, sultry bathroom designs that evoke an indulgent high-end experience.
EXPOSED SHOWER PLUMBING
In bathrooms, we’re incorporating more exposed shower plumbing. The industrial look pairs beautifully with a white, modern marble
PEWTER AND GUNMETAL HARDWARE
Pewter and gunmetal is the trend we are loving. It’s not as harsh as pure black or specific as brass or gold, but it gives fixtures some texture and depth.
VANITIES IN FRONT OF WINDOWS
More vanities in front of windows. When there is a beautiful view, it’s great to stand by the sink and look out. Suspended mirrors from the ceiling or a mirror on the end wall of the sink can be installed. Another plus is that the lighting is great.
Gone are the days where you hide behind a wall or door when getting ready for work or a big night out. It’s all about the open concept. The use of steel or privacy glass as a barrier is important, but ultimately, showering and getting ready in the open air is awesome.
Powder rooms have always been a place to add high drama to a small space, but now oversized floral wall prints and pattern-on-pattern are feeling very of-the-moment, particularly in bold, bright colours.
WHITE AND GREY MARBLE
White and grey marble continue to be strong, popular materials into 2019 for bathrooms and kitchens alike. They are classic and timeless, can go from traditional to modern in terms of aesthetics, and are also great for resale. Man-made materials, such as quartz and porcelain tiles that look like natural stones, are also workhorses from a durability perspective and will continue to be popular in the new year
We’re seeing that people no longer see the bath as a utilitarian space and more as an experiential space. They’re looking for spa-like experiences as well as a kind of theatrical beauty for what used to be a very interior and private space
We’ll see the use of concrete application in sink basins, countertops, floors and walls. It’s really exciting to see a brutalist material mixed with organic elements. Traditionally, concrete has been viewed as cold and non-welcoming, but I’m of the mindset that marrying this utilitarian medium with woods, steel, porcelain and resin is what you guys are going to see surface in 2019 across all design aesthetics.
