Trend #1. Bathrooms of the Future
All the imagination of what the year 2020 would bring seems to be paying off big time! Bathrooms are not disappointing at all, with everything from smart showers, mini fridges, automatic sinks and toilets. Showers can be set to start automatically, this means it will be ready and waiting for your morning routine. Another more common trend is the built-in blue tooth speaker system. Now you can easily jam out or wind down with the sounds of your shower. Voice activated features for lighting and temperature, smart mirrors that talk to you, and increased TV installments are just a few but the possibilities are endless! These modern day bathrooms are transforming into personalized day spas, and these technologies make the experience more relaxing and convenient than ever before. Voice control is really migrating all over the home with the help of digital assistants like Google Home and Alexa.
Trend #2 Instead of a separate tub and shower, try a wet room
If you’re building your bathroom from the start or renovating, consider going with a wet room approach. A wet room is basically a separate tiled space in your bathroom that contains a shower and tub. It makes your bathroom feel more spa-like while still being incredibly easy to clean. An added bonus? It creates separation so someone can use the rest of the bathroom, including sinks, even when someone’s in the shower.
Trend #3. Dark finishes and accessories
Okay, we understand you may be hesitant when it comes to adding these even darker tones to your home. Grey may continue to be a top choice for those looking to stray away from a classic white or neutral color, but aren’t quite ready for the boldness of black. We’re moving on to bolder, darker styles this year. Darker tones have been starting to pick up and continuing to gain popularity. That’s right, darker tones, specifically black, are here. We saw so many grey bathrooms this past year, but expect to see an increase in black bathrooms. This trend is most popular in countertops, light fixtures, vanities, mirrors, and other fixtures- especially with matte finishes!
Trend #4. Industrial Styled Sinks & Vanities
With all the metal finish possibilities, wooden accents, and funky tile patterns, it only makes sense that the industrial vanity is in. Pair these industrial style sinks with granite that has some of the metallic tones in it to match your color palette. Its sleek and modern look fits in perfectly with this edgy, yet classy remodeling trend. Industrial sinks can be matched with a pop of color like gold or brass accents, matte black fixtures, and fun tile patterns to modernize the look even more. While this style may not be for everyone, it’s very current and you should expect to see an increase in popularity for this type of design with the coming year!
Trend #5 Tubs
Tubs, once banished from the master bathroom, have made a comeback. But not every bathroom has room for a large, free-standing basin. The manner in which we experience bathtubs nowadays—generally filled with hot or warm water, meant for relaxation, a permanent fixture in most homes—wasn’t always the norm. Taking a bath should mean you get an ultimate spa experience.
