5 Bathroom Trends You Should Watch in 2019

By December 18, 2018 No Comments

As we move forward into 2019, bathroom styles are developing and changing as they do every year. Whatever size or style of bathroom you prefer, there are new trends breaking for 2019 that will have you reaching for your tape measuring and planning a fresh new look for your bathroom.

Take inspiration from these burgeoning trends:

1. Go Vintage

Every so often, vintage décor surges back into popularity – this is one of those times. Vintage styles including patterned ceramic floor tiles and gold-toned plumbing can be deliciously offset by contemporary sleek bathroom furniture for a unique effect. It just depends how vintage you want to go and whether your space is big enough to cope with the darker colours that are often part of vintage colour schemes.

2. Asymmetrical Breaks the Boredom

Any style of bathroom can be made completely unique by one of the hottest trends of 2019 – asymmetrical accessories. Don’t worry, we’re not suggesting putting your sink at an angle, but making features of asymmetrical mirrors to contrast with your striking bathroom furniture could liven up any bathroom. Consider different arrangements of shelves, cabinets and drawers to find something that is unique yours.

3. Candy Pop Colours are Invading

This trend won’t suit everyone, but for people looking for something out of the ordinary, using large florals and retro geometrics in bright acid tones is a bathroom style that will stand out. As mentioned above, vintage is in style and even retro tiles based on patterns from the 60’s and 70’s are a flashback to another era. If you’re concerned about going the whole way and making your bathroom stand out a little too much, go with light candy colours like blush pink coupled with tiles that aren’t overly complicated but still unique enough to count.

4. Bigger is Getting Even Better

Size improvements to bathrooms have been on the agenda for several years now, but fresh bathroom styles increasingly demand more space as airy and relaxing décor elbow their way back into sight. Sometimes, something as simple as taking the space from an unused wardrobe in an adjoining room can make all the difference. If you don’t have this luxury, remodelling to make the most of the space you do have could be a great springboard into a new spacious bathroom for 2019.

5. Small Bathrooms are More Innovative That Ever

Don’t worry if there’s no way of extending your bathroom and if you’re despairing about obtaining any more space from what feels like a tiny room. Innovation is stepping in to help and many small bathrooms will be transformed in 2019 by storage solutions and ideas that would’ve seemed impossible just a few years ago. Small windows can reflect light from multiple surfaces to give even small rooms an airy feeling, while multi-functional units and cabinets make light work of saving space. Expect to see more innovations like this in the next 12 months.
