Grey may have been one of the most popular styles in previous year bathroom remodeling projects, however, that’s all about to change.We’re moving on to bolder, darker styles this season. Grey is great, but black is better! In our Top Trends for Bathrooms article we stated that darker tones were starting to pick up and that it would continue to gain popularity. Well guess what? Their time is now! 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 light fixtures, vanities, mirrors, and other fixtures- especially with matte finishes! Since some homeowners may be hesitant when it comes to adding these even darker tones to their homes, 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.
Last year we talked about smart toilets, but this year the whole bathroom is getting a high-tech upgrade. In previous articles we discussed high-tech toilets increasing popularity as a trend lead by Japan. The toilets saw things like seat warmers, automatic lid openers, adjustable air dryers, built-in deodorizers and more. If you were impressed with that technology, just wait till you hear about the rest of the bathroom. In 2020, bathrooms will see smart showers, mini fridges, and automatic sinks. We recently remodeled a home that allowed for the homeowner to set his shower to start automatically. This means by the time he got home from work, his shower was hot and ready! 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 of the other fun trends we’ve seen, but the possibilities are endless. Modern day bathrooms are transforming into personalized day spas, and these technologies make the experience more relaxing and convenient than ever before.
Gold fixtures are back and better than ever! Shades of brass and gold are taking over sinks, toilets, and basically anything and everything in your bathroom this year. Erase the memories of your Grandparent’s bathroom brass faucet, because this lovely new warm toned gold plumbing fixtures will become your new go to, adding just the right amount of depth, dimension, and luxury feel to any space.
Homeowners love the change to warmer accents with the brass/gold toned bathroom fixtures versus the traditional shiny polished chrome which conveys a more cool, modern, and sleek feel. Offered in new finish options like in satin, matte, and spun gold this subtle change is just what was needed to add that classic traditional element to any space. With the added bonus of keeping fingerprints and water spots hidden.
This warmer tone has become the accent pieces of a room, with complimenting hardware, light fixtures, and mirrors as well.
Look around and you will find more gold tone items than you think. The reason for the comeback–it just looks great in so many different style settings.
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! With all the metal finish possibilities, wooden accents, and funky tile patterns, it only makes sense that the industrial vanity is in. Its sleek and modern look fits in perfectly with this edgy, yet classy remodeling trend. Industrial sinks can be matched with pop’s of colors, gold or brass accents, matte black fixtures, and fun tile patterns to modernize the look even more. Industrial vanities are a great look for smaller apartments or your hall bathroom. This urbanized and trendy style is sure to make a statement in 2020, so don’t miss out!
We have already seen how technology is allowing manufacturers to create all sorts of designs using basic tiles, but now they are going beyond the colors and graphics to change the traditional tile shape into something more interesting.
We are seeing a resurgence of the once beloved tiles of decades past, plus a few new designs. No longer are we content with just a subway tile or a large format tile on the wall. We have lots of tile shapes to choose from once again. So, look for new and improved hexagon, arabesque, diamond, Moroccan fish scales, or chevron patterns in new colors & textures. These eye-catching shapes will not just grace the floor either; they will also be used as bathroom backsplashes, on shower walls, and possibly ceiling accents to create the bold accents we so desire.
As mentioned early in this post, grey is slowly making it’s way out of home remodeling trends. With this comes the return of warmer tones and accents- specifically wooden ones! Various shades of wood can compliment white, blue, green, and darker colored bathroom. Practically anywhere! Wood accents pair nicely with vintage and industrial trends so it’s no surprise that they’re popping up again. This look adds a classically traditional style to you other wise trendy and modern bathroom. We’re seeing it in unique styles too! Some of the pictures below showcase just a few of the possibilities available when choosing wood tones for your 2020 bathroom remodel. Check it out!

These pops of color pair nicely with a neutral shade, either light or dark! You may have heard of green or blue kitchens becoming more popular, and while this is true, expect to see those colors in upcoming 2020 bathroom remodels.

On the other hand, green brings about the feelings of nature and wellness. Other colors may even boost your mood and creativity levels.

When it comes to color options for 2020 design trends, there’s some we prefer in a pop, and then there’s some we want all over. Shades of blush will continue to prevail in 2020 bathroom trends. Blush is one of the most popular wall color choices for modern bathroom walls. Another notable trend that isn’t quite there yet, but slowly starting to reveal itself is rose gold. This color will soon not just be for your latest Iphone, but also for faucets, drawer pulls, and even bathtubs. Keep your eyes peeled, we expect to see this become quite trendy in the next few years.
