One of our favorite parts of the holiday season is that it’s the time of year design gurus start predicting what’s going to be all the rage next season. If you’re planning on building, remodeling, or maybe just want to do a little sprucing up, here are some ideas to keep in mind.
Spa Inspired Designs
Bathrooms in 2019 are all about the experience, the notion of the bathroom as a purely utilitarian space is over. People’s homes are their sanctuaries and the bathroom is where you go to relax and unwind alone after your day. Drawing inspiration from the pinnacle of relaxation only makes sense.
The use of natural materials is a major way to create the feeling of serenity key to this look, this bathroom achieves this beautifully with the wood wall and coordinating bench. The light fixture adds a touch of whimsy that keeps the space from feeling too serious.Photo: Besch Design

Open Concept Bathrooms
Not for the faint of heart, open concept bathrooms have been growing in popularity in recent years and seemed poised to take off in 2019. Many open concept bathrooms draw very strongly on spa inspired design, though this isn’t always the case.

Place A Vanity In Front Of A Window
One fresh design idea for 2019 is to place your vanity in front of a window. Especially if you have a wonderful view, you naturally want to take advantage, and everyone knows natural light is the optimal choice if you have it. There are so many ways to place or suspend a mirror, we don’t think this trend will be going anywhere anytime soon.

This is an especially good idea in a smaller bathroom, where lighting and window space can be limited. This round mirror, suspended from a rope and pulley give off a fun, rustic nautical vibe that makes this small piece a statement.Photo: Pinterest
Technology has taken over practically every aspect of our lives, and it should come as no surprise that our bathrooms haven’t been left out of the revolution. From smart showers where you can control water pressure and temperature on demand, to mirrors that are integrative media systems, the future is now and it is in our bathrooms.
Whether with a bright print or piece of art, designers and homeowners are making walls, and not additional accessories, the focal point of the bathroom in 2019.

If you don’t want to commit to a more permanent option, using a large or dramatic piece of art as a focal point in your bathroom is also a very 2019 design choice. Photo: Wall Street Journal
Art Deco Is Back
Art Deco is a style of design and architecture that emerged from France after WWI. Popular throughout the 1920s and 30s, Art Deco is defined by bold geometric patterns, beautiful craftsmanship, and ornately lavish details. While art deco isn’t for everyone, if you’re looking to inject a little high style or drama into your space, this may be exactly the aesthetic you’re looking for.
