5 Must-See Bathroom Trends for 2019

2019 will be in full swing soon.

There’s no better time than a fresh, new year to think about the spaces in your home that need a makeover.

The bathroom is a great place to start.

If your bathroom could use an upgrade, you need to know what’s trending this year.

Here’s what’s “in” in 2019 for bathrooms.

1. Don’t be afraid to go big

Today’s bathrooms are for more than just hygiene.

It has also become a haven for beauty and relaxation – and that requires space.

If you’re able, consider expanding your bathroom.

One option for doing this is to take some square footage from an adjoining room, like a closet that you can make do without.

If that’s not possible, you still have options.

Try these simple tricks to make your bathroom look and feel bigger.

One way to do this is to use bigger tiles for the floor.

Larger tiles have fewer joints which makes the room feel more spacious.

2. Get vintage

Vintage design is “in” right now.

Even in the bathroom, you might wonder?

Absolutely.

Here are some vintage elements you can add to get the right feel in your new space:

  • Find a vintage mirror at a yard sale or a thrift shop.
  • Yard sales, antique stores, and resale shops are great places to find interesting lighting fixtures.
  • An old dresser can easily be repurposed into an amazing vanity.
  • Put your gold-toned plumbing on display.
  • Patterned ceramic tile ties the vintage look together.

3. Stick to simplicity

More timeless than trendy, a clean, refined bathroom style is always on point.

It’s all about clean lines, simple decor, and muted-color textiles.

Earthy colors, gray tones, and white can give this look a hint of the modern.

4. Terrazzo’s terrific

Ceramic has been a staple in the bathroom for a long time.

But there’s a new kid on the block – Terrazzo.

It’s a composite material that’s made of marble, quartz, and other suitable materials.

You can use it for your countertops, backsplashes, decorative accent pieces, and wall refacing.

But the most common place you’ll find Terrazzo is on shower floors.

5. Asymmetrical adornments

Because you would normally go to great lengths to make sure everything is lined up perfectly, it can be hard to think differently.

One trending theme in bathrooms for 2019 is using asymmetrical shapes for the placement of drawers, shelves, and cabinets.

Start slow. Don’t commit too quickly – you might get bored.

First, lay around with easy-to-replace accessories.

Which style trend appeals to you?

You don’t have to be all-in with any certain trend.

Take what you like, pass on what you don’t, and make the space a reflection of you.

Feel free to mix-and-match.

For example, make a vintage light fixture the focal point of an otherwise-basic bathroom.

When you’re ready to get started on your new bathroom, make sure you’re working with experts who can guide you through the process from design to completion.
