What inspiring looks will come to the forefront of interior design this year? Whether you’re looking to update a bathroom with statement pieces, a complete makeover, or want to keep in touch with what’s trending. Here are some great new bathroom trends for the new year:

Outside graces inside
Natural materials will be emphasised in the coming months, with wood and stone being used, such as salvaged timber accents for floors, walls, and ceilings. Wooden basins, counters, and even baths will prove ever more popular. Cascading greenery, potted plants, small trees, and vertical gardens are bringing cleaner air into bathrooms and uplifting effects.

Floor tiles to make a statement
A rising trend in 2020 is feature floors; this style is particularly useful if you don’t have the space to add statement pieces elsewhere in the room. Floors can be made a feature through the use of interesting designs, such as distressed wood effect tiles or statement mosaic tiles.

Retro goes modern
After making a splash last year, retro tile accents will be more deeply incorporated into bathroom designs by pairing the retro look with modern contemporary aspects. This style will also blend effortlessly with the noir sleekness of black and white.

Black is the new grey
Grey may have been one of the most popular styles in 2018 and 2019 bathroom remodeling projects; however, that’s all about to change. We’re moving on to bolder, darker styles this season; darker tones are starting to pick up and continue to gain popularity. This trend is most popular in light fixtures, vanities, mirrors, and other fixtures-, especially with matte finishes.

Bathrooms of the future
Smart toilets were the talking point of last year, but this year the whole bathroom is getting a high-tech upgrade. In 2020, bathroom trends will see people installing smart showers, mini-fridges, and automatic sinks. Another more common trend is the built-in blue tooth speaker system; with this, you can easily jam out or wind down with the sounds of your shower.

Tile patterns
Technology is allowing manufacturers to create all sorts of designs using basic tiles. Still, now they are going beyond the colors and graphics to change the traditional tile shape into something more interesting. Hexagon, arabesque, diamond, Moroccan fish scales, or chevron patterns in new colors & textures are becoming popular for bathroom floor tiles.

Pops of colour
We are expecting to see an increase in colorful accents, fixtures, and accessories in bathrooms. These pops of color pair nicely with a neutral shade and pops of blue in the home are said to increase relaxation levels, green brings about the feelings of nature and wellness.

Traditional Bathrooms
Traditional bathrooms represent the very best of Edwardian or Victorian design. This type of design is known for roll-top baths, high cistern toilets, and classic taps with ceramic details. Traditional style doesn’t mean old-fashioned; the majority of conventional fixtures boast modern functionality.
