Fashions change with the times – even for bathrooms. While you may not see them on a paparazzi-lined runway, the trends for a modern, functional and vibrant bathroom are essential components for homeowners wanting a bathroom upgrade.
In this article, we’ll give you the inside scoop on the latest in bathroom remodeling trends for 2020.
Does Fashion Really Change for Bathrooms?
It sure does! Even though your bathroom is one of the most functional rooms in your home, it often gets lost in the shuffle when it’s time for a re-do.
For proof, consider the classic speckled granite counters, cabinetry and trim. They definitely rocked the 90s, but they look hopelessly stale in 2020.
As Bob Dylan so famously said, “The times, they are a changin.’”
What are the Top Bathroom Trends for 2020?
Even though they’re usually among the smallest rooms in homes, a bit of forethought and planning is required before remodeling. In most cases, plumbing, electrical and carpentry work all come into play during bathroom renovations.
Wall-mounted sinks and vanities: From freeing up much-needed space to making cleanups easier, a sink or vanity mounted on the wall is a stylish solution for small bathrooms.
- How to integrate this idea: Wall-mounted sinks can be secured by brackets onto a wall stud or a wall reinforcement behind the wall.
Smart technology in the bathroom: As technology continues to advance, just about every aspect of our lives are made easier. We’re seeing a noticeable jump in smart technology for bathrooms. This includes voice-activated lighting, toilets with seat warmers, lids that open automatically, built-in deodorizers, electronically controlled showers, and more. Who knew “going” could be so stylish?
- How to integrate this idea: A great way to introduce smart technology into your bathroom is to include programmable lighting to set a specific mood and a remote controller that will fill your tub to a specific temperature.
Electric towel warmers: Doesn’t a warm, fluffy towel sound incredibly cozy when you step out of the shower?
- How to integrate the idea: Whether you’d prefer a wall-mounted option or a freestanding model, there’s plenty of options for towel warmers.
New tiling shape options: Say “buh-bye” to the basic subway or large format tile of yesteryear. Now, bathroom tiles are far more customizable in terms of shape and colors.
- How to integrate the idea: With the vast size, shape and color options now available, you can choose to have an entire wall tiled or just a specific section of your bathroom.
Clear shower doors: Even though these minimalist shower doors began growing in popularity several years ago, they’re still very much in style. The even better news is that manufacturers are hip to the trend, and have responded with providing a host of design options.
- How to integrate the idea: Clear shower doors are available with barn door-type doors and those that swing open
As you look at the trends above, one thing becomes obvious: massive furnishing is out, and console-like vanities and minimalism is in.
