Today, I want to keep sharing the hottest home decor trends of 2020 and we’re going to take a look at the bathrooms. If you want to start the year with a bathroom renovation, think of matt surfaces, strong tiles with shape and possibly texture, waterfall showers and free-standing bathtubs, atmospheric colors and dark ambience or vice versa – minimal rooms flooded with light. Let’s take a closer look at some of the current trends.
Atmospheric decor is all the rage, it became popular a few years ago and these dark rooms keep taking over the world as they feel relaxed and look exquisite. We’re used to seeing light-filled and white bathrooms, but moody ones are going to be a hit this year, and if you’re willing to experiment, this is it!
Minimalism is in full swing this year and the minimalist bathrooms are great: they aren’t cluttered which makes them look bigger, they are bathed in light, and very fresh and elegant – perfect for a contemporary home. You can opt for any color scheme and even mix two trends – minimalism and moody hues in one room for an edgy look.
This year is for bold tiles, and here we don’t mean colors, but shapes and textures. Make a statement with fish scales, hexagon and other geometric tiles and many other shapes that you like – they make an impression even if they are not bright, they make a statement with their shapes. But of course, you can also use colorful ones and emphasize them with contrasting mortar.
Freestanding bathtubs and sinks
Freestanding devices take up less space and look more modern and chic, especially if you pick out some quirky and catchy items. Claw-foot tubs are a hot and trendy idea, and if you prefer modern style, you can go for differently shaped modern tubs. While they may seem expensive, freestanding bathtubs and sinks both add value to your home and retain their value over time.
Forget shiny metals for this year and take a look at matte, especially black ones, which are easily noticeable and visibly recognizable. Dirt and dust are not visible on matt surfaces and the material is not easily permeable. So consider matte black if you want to give your bathroom a modern look that won’t be easily forgotten.
Mirrors are magical! They are timeless for decorating any room, from the bathroom to the living room, they illuminate rooms that reflect light and visually enlarge them. Plus, a mirror in a catchy frame is a gorgeous piece of your decor that will highlight your style. In bathrooms, the mirrors are usually functional parts. However, you can use one or more for decorative purposes, for example to hang them over the bathtub.
In my opinion, hanging a mirror over a bathtub is a great solution for modern bathrooms and many others as well. This mirror can not only become a great wall decoration, but also visually enlarge the room. We all know how important it is to all of those tiny bathrooms in modern urban living spaces. Of course, there will be some problems with such an arrangement and you will have to clean this mirror more often than anyone else. Although for many of you that won't be a problem.
Choose a statement mirror to match the style of your bathroom or add a touch of the style you want: a large ornate framed mirror for a glamorous and sophisticated room, an oversized round mirror in a simple frame for a boho, or a modern room as a whole mirror wall for more light, a vintage mirror wall for a vintage glamor room and so on. You can create an entire gallery wall out of mirrors if it fits your whimsical interior. Just check out all of these lovely bathrooms we've put together for you and choose what suits you!
