Cue the airhorn, 2020 bathroom design trends are in! And, in our humble opinion, they’re better than ever. As another decade comes to a close, the time to jump on the trend wagon for your home improvement projects is prime. That being said, some of 2020’s biggest home design trends center around the bathroom. They’re so fresh, so clean, and they’re relaxing—favoring simplistic and transitional designs that revolve around helping you achieve complete mind and body relaxation in your new, at-home spa. Here’s the 411 on bathroom design trends we’re sure you’ll be seeing in 2020.
Scandinavian Design Takeover
Trends operate on a cycle, each approach featuring a slightly new twist to the original design. This year, the overall winning bathroom design concept goes to Scandinavian designers. This type of interior design originated from Nordic countries in the mid-1950s and has remained one of the most popular interior décor styles in the nation. This evolved trend has now taken over the bathroom, featuring elements that prioritize simplicity, beauty, and functionality. The combination of its utility in both contemporary and traditional design have melded into a transitional concept that is timeless. Here, you’ll see a neutral-heavy color palette, natural textiles and materials (such as wood and stone), and lots of natural light.
Standalone Soaks & Walk-In Showers
Freestanding bathtubs and walk-in showers are taking centerstage in 2020 bathroom trends. This design concept, however, is not a new one. For centuries, the water basins of yesteryear were once the sole elements in bathrooms until water pressure became relevant. Today, many homeowners prefer the modern utility of having both a standalone tub and separate walk-in shower system in their bathrooms, removing the complications of traditional bath-and-shower combinations.
Bye-Bye Millennial Pink
Neutrals, like champagne and light yellows, still reign supreme when it comes to bathroom color trends. In 2020, however, we expect to see deeper hues emerge from this neutral-based palette—particularly with regard to forest greens, pumpkin reds, and rich shades of navy. All of these punchy tones are appealing because they have the ability to break up lighter neutrals and invite nature into the home without integrating plant life, something those without a green thumb will appreciate. Keep in mind that these colors work best when incorporated discretely.
Subway Tile, Shiplap, & Mixed Textures
Thanks to a certain fixer-upper, you can make some 2020 gains—wink, wink—in your bathroom with shiplap and subway tile. The goal with this trend is to create as many textural layers as you can in the bathroom, while still maintaining a balance in color. To keep it simple, try mixing natural materials—like wood and stone—with subtly textured linens. For example, opt for a natural wood vanity with a marble countertop or try implementing a simple tile pattern on every wall—extending past the wet-area of your shower or bathtub. Stay away from the geometric backsplashes and floor tiles of 2019, as these can confuse the eye and clutter the visual space of your bathroom.
