Whether you’re a homeowner planning a renovation, or an interior designer helping your client build their new dream home,  staying up-to-date with the latest bathroom design trends is imperative. We pulled the 2020 bathroom trends to help you find inspiration. We’re seeing chic, modern, and smart technology as significant players in the bathroom space for 2020. 

OPEN CONCEPT 

As the bathroom changes, the possibility of expansion and space is top of mind. In fact, the goal of most bathroom remodels is to give the homeowner more space or make the most out of their area. A great way to give your client the illusion of a larger bathroom is by adding in a frameless shower. Frameless showers appear to visually increase the size of the bathroom, while also being convenient for the homeowner. A frameless shower has the benefit of adding to the aesthetic presentation of your home, making it the focal point of your bathroom. As an added benefit, a frameless shower is easier to clean and maintain than a framed enclosure.

MIRROR MIRROR ON THE WALL 

In 2020 we’re seeing a trend of wall to wall or ceiling to sink mirrors. This bathroom design trend gives the homeowner the illusion of more space, while also being aesthetically pleasing. This look helps to reduce the need for cabinetry above the sink, which can make the space feel clunky and cumbersome. You can always add storage under the sink or make storage a priority with built-in shelves elsewhere in the bathroom. 

BLACK IS THE NEW, WELL, BLACK

In 2018 and 2019, we saw grey take over the bathroom as one of the most popular colors for walls and accents. This year we see bolder, darker styles take over. Overall, people seem to be embracing darker tones, creating a luxe spa-like feel for their bathrooms. Does your bathroom already seem dark? Maybe you don’t have any windows. Embrace the space by opting for black tile in your shower. If you love mid-century modern design, lean into this trend by adding industrial piping as an accent fixture. 

ALL ABOUT THE PATTERNS 

Subway tile has long been a staple of bathrooms, but this year we will see various patterns of tiles and shapes taking over. We are seeing homeowners get creative with their tiles and leaning on patterns from the past. Whether you’re looking to add accents, backsplash, an entire floor, wall step out of your comfort zone. A more creative and trendy space to tile is the ceiling, which helps to create bold accents. We encourage you to show your client tiles like the arabesque, diamond, Moroccan fish scales, or chevron pattern. These tiles are eye-catching and conversation pieces. 

ADD IN TECH 

Last year we saw a rise in technology in smart toilets, but this year you can expect to see the entire bathroom getting a little bit smarter! In 2020, bathrooms will have built-in Bluetooth speakers, and mirrors with built-in TVs. Voice-activated technology will also come into bathroom design to help control lighting, temperature, and smart mirrors. Adding technology to the bathroom helps to add a level of convenience that has never been there before whether that’s setting the scene for a spa-like oasis, or getting your work day started while you get ready!
