Top Bathroom Trends in 2020
Wondering what’s hot in bathrooms this year? Whether you are building a new home or ready to remodel, it always pays to learn what’s trending.
Keeping bathrooms fresh and vibrant is a great way to add enjoyment and value to a home. With that in mind, here’s a look at some of the most popular and prevalent bathroom trends of 2020.
1. Bold and Shiny Bathroom Tiles
If deep, dark, moody hues are your go-to decorating favorites, you will love one of the top tile trends of 2020. Glossy bold tiles are back in style.
Especially in vogue are jewel-toned tiles such as royal blues and greens.
Make a strong statement in the bathroom with these shades.
2. Raw and Natural Bathroom Tiles
On the flip side of bold and flashy are tiles that return to a more earthy look. Natural textured tiles can work on walls or floors.
If you use them for the floor, though, invest in rugs that will be comfortable to step on each day, as this kind of texture can be hard on the feet. One especially fashionable choice for floors is travertine, with its warm hue that flouts the long-held standard of bright and white in the bathroom.
3. Tiles in Unique Shapes
Squares and rectangles are only two of the many possibilities for bathroom tiles.
Everything from hexagons to scallops is making waves these days. When you’re creating a stylish bathroom, think outside the box with shape and size.
4. Showstopping Bathtubs
The love of luxury is here to stay in bathroom design. Recent luxurious developments include interesting tub shapes and eye-catching freestanding designs.
Not only are classic oval and rectangle options available, but you can also select a round tub to create a unique aesthetic. Deep-soaking tubs are still beloved, as they give homeowners a place to relax and unwind with maximum comfort.
An increasing number of black tubs can be found in current home showcases as well. These add a note of opulence to their surroundings.
5. The Color Black
Speaking of black tubs, this is a color that’s truly on-trend in today’s bathrooms. Forget the more muted gray and go with bold black instead!
Look for it in light fixtures, vanities, mirrors, and more to distinguish your bathroom from the traditional design.
6. Raw Stone Sinks
There’s nothing like the natural beauty of a raw stone stink. Add one to any bathroom to up the wow factor.
If you are considering installing one in a bathroom with heavy usage, however, keep in mind natural stone can be hard to clean.
7. Brushed Brass Finishes
The elegance of brushed brass is trending in bathroom designs, especially when homeowners want to create a luxurious, spa-like space, such as in the master suite.
Favored for its sophistication and glamour, brass has many applications for the bathroom. This finish is effective on faucets, mirrors, vanity hardware, and light fixtures.
8. Smart Upgrades
As technology continues to evolve, so do bathrooms. Trending today are high-tech toilets, seat warmers, automatic lid openers, smart showers, automatic sinks, and the ever-popular built-in Bluetooth speaker system.
If you love a little tech boost at home, also consider voice-activated lighting and mirrors that talk to you!
When you want to stay on the cutting edge of modern bathroom design, exploring trends is key.
The eight ideas above are a great place to start for your bathroom. Pick the in-style ideas that are most appealing and work them into the design, knowing you are in good company.
