When was the last time you updated your bathroom? If the answer is you can’t remember or never, then you’re way overdue. A minor remodel of about $10,000 can gain you a 102% return on investment.
If you aren’t ready to invest in a full remodel, you can still update the look of your bathroom. Try one or more of these five bathroom trends to bring your bathroom in 2020.
An easy way to update your bathroom is to replace the fixtures. Choose new ones in a brass finish for an on-trend look. If you want to make the bathroom look modern, stick with brushed brass.
The brushed look as a softer and less jarring feel. Change out the fixtures to the rub, shower, sinks, and lights.
2. Soaking Tubs
Large freestanding soaking tubs are back in fashion. Look for one that’s extra deep so that you can be completely submerged in water when sitting in the tub. The most popular freestanding tubs are white with an art deco vibe.
Don’t feel as though you need to choose this style of a freestanding tub. You could opt for a more traditional style that has claw feet.
Or you could choose a bold and unique tub made of stone or copper. A black tub can add a sense of opulence to your bathroom.
3. Integrated Lighting
Every skilled interior designer will tell you that every room needs three sources of light. This is especially true in the bathroom. You need soft lighting to leave on as a curtesy when guests are over so they can find their way.
You also need bright lighting that can illuminate the entire bathroom while you’re using it. Then you need task lighting around the vanity to assist with personal care.
Integrated lighting is the perfect solution for all of these needs. Integrated lighting uses the architecture of the bathroom to create unique lighting features. This works well in smaller bathrooms and powder rooms where space for lighting fixtures is limited.
Try placing a vanity mirror that has integrated LED lighting. Or install lighting under the cabinetry.
4. Shaped Tiles
Gone are the days of dull square and rectangle tiles. Bathrooms are going to see more treatments of shaped tiles this year. The most popular shapes in 2020 are hexagons and scallops.
Just be sure to hire an expert to install your shaped tile. Installing square tile requires time and skill, so shaped tiles will present an even great challenge. Hiring an expert is crucial for a beautiful and lasting result.
5. Marbleized Wallpaper
Marble is a popular pattern these days, and it’s popping up everywhere. Why not embrace the trend by hanging marbleized wallpaper on the wall of your bathroom? Try to keep the marble colors neutral by choosing a shade of white, grey, or cream.
The lighter colors will keep the bathroom feeling bright and clean. They’ll also allow you to focus on color in other areas of the bathroom.
If you want to add a bit of glam to your bathroom, look for a marble pattern that has gold or silver tones worked through it. This small bit of shine will give your bathroom a luxurious feel.
