Been dreaming lately about giving your bathroom a new look? Well, hold it right there, as we are about to save you so much money while also keeping your bathing / showering space super in vogue.
That’s right, we’ve had our ears to the ground for quite some time (meaning we’ve been listening to what Bathroom Designers, Interior Decorators, and other professionals in the industry have been planning), and we have it here: 7 official trends that will be considered “hot” for 2020.
As always, you’re welcome!
Designers constantly change what standalone tubs and water basins should look like and where they must be placed. For 2020, they are going back to basics by putting our origins and culture first. Think of Japanese bathrooms where natural asymmetrical shapes and artisanal vibes are at the forefront of the space’s design.
Your options? Depending on your available space, your standalone tub can be placed right in the centre, in a corner, or integrated into a wall! And treat your sink to a raw, natural look via rough-looking materials like stone, concrete, and marble.
Bathroom fittings have their job cut out for them to become more prominent, especially in minimalist spaces. But for 2020, it sounds like we’re going to have more options for eye-catching fittings, as black, gold, copper, brushed, and shined finishes will be in!
Your options? Pair your fittings with a simple-looking vanity and/or an open or glass-walled shower to make them stand out even more.
For 2020, extravagant-looking tiles are out and those flaunting a subtler style are in. Think neutral colour schemes, especially greys and matte blacks. And textured tiles are ideal for those seeking a more dynamic look and feel.
Your options? Opt for tiles that will be timeless, like neutral hues in elegant designs. If you want to bring in some colour with your bathroom’s tiles, dark or light tones are best – stay away from anything too flashy.
As per the Milan Design Show, 2020’s favourite colours are to be champagne, light yellow, and pumpkin red.
Your options? Don’t go too far by painting or tiling your bathroom walls with these colours, especially yellow and orange which can be quite domineering. Rather sprinkle these tints around your bathroom via colourful accessories.
Open-style Italian showers, especially those that are multi-functional with integrated benches, ambient lighting, anti-fog drain, etc. are set to become even bigger (not literally) in 2020. That’s thanks to the trend that will include the tub in the shower area. Just separate the bathing / showering spaces via a glass wall to make your bathroom look way more spacious.
Your options? Think practical – just because you can have a shower-bath area doesn’t mean you should. It might look great, but those water- and soap residues will now end up at the bottom of your shower and bathtub, leaving you with more cleaning work! If you have the space, we suggest an open-style shower and a separate tub.
Textiles with botanical prints are one thing, but for 2020 your bathroom’s commitment to nature will be more literal. Working with the fact that we’re more efficient and calmer when surrounded by nature, more and more bathrooms around the world will be integrating real-life plantation into their designs.
Your options? Create a full wall of greenery, pick natural material tiles, have a full-size window looking out onto your lush garden, or even just bring in a single potted plant.
2020 will be moving away from chunky pieces, especially when it comes to bathroom vanities – terrific news for those of us with small bathrooms.
Your options? To make your slimmer bathroom vanity practical, only keep essential goodies in your space. Commit to storing the rest in hallway cupboards, especially anything that can “spoil” (like perfumes).
