Bathroom Trends for 2019

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.contemporary-master-bath-the-warmth-of-natural-wood-balances-the-stark-elegance-of-the-freestanding-tub-1.jpegPhoto: 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.

This freestanding partition, doubling as the a vanity area with sinks and countertops, allows for a feeling of privacy while still creating that open concept feeling that comes from free flowing light and not having doors.SquareRooms-Open-Concept-Bathroom-Fixed-Divider.pngPhoto: Square Rooms
Using glass walls is another popular way of incorporating the feeling of open concept design into your bathroom.open-concept-master-suite-bedroom-contemporary-with-open-bath-rectangular-decorative-pillowsPhoto: Chic Home Life

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 contemporary bathroom take the look to the next level by placing a double vanity in front of a glass wall. The pole mounted mirrors parallel the lines of the glass framing and modern open shelving continues the aesthetic on the vanity.bathroom-vanity-mirrors-hanging-in-front-of-windowsPhoto: DecorPad
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.0a73a9f9759b78b0a0f6c927367ea53b.jpgPhoto: Pinterest

Smart Bathrooms

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.

Statement Walls

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. BN-RB835_1208BA_M_20161205141323Photo: 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.

Fabulous Bathroom Vanities

When granite or marble counters are mentioned, most people instantly think about the kitchen. And we do understand, but we also know how beautiful and functional granite and marble each are as bathroom counters. Here are some amazing bathroom vanities we are loving right now.

This 3.5″ slab of Calacatta Gold Marble counter was the perfect choice to complement this luxurious nature-inspired space. This feels more like an expensive retreat than it does someone’s master bath and the only issue is how difficult it must be to leave this amazing bathroom.Contemporary-Bathrooms-Mountain-Retreats-02-1-KindesignPhoto: OneKinDesign
This gorgeous white and blue bathroom feels totally serene. The white marble with light gray veining is a beautiful match with the blue-gray hued walls. This master bath is a great example of how a room can simultaneously feel modern and classic.

This master bathroom fits perfectly in the rustic Montana retreat it’s located in.  The natural stone is the same on the vanity, running between the blue tiles on the floor, and in the standup shower providing a real sense of continuity.contemporary-bathrooms-mountain-retreats-09-1-kindesign.jpgPhoto: OneKinDesign
How fabulous is this white marble waterfall style double vanity? We are drooling over how chic the open shelving looks with the low-edged open glass containers. This storage option is super stylish and keeps everything beautifully organized.design-ideas-wonderful-white-bathroom-decoration-using-white-marble-bathroom-vanity-including-marble-floor-tiles-and-oval-white-free-stand-bathtub-heavenly-interior-design-using-marble-fPhoto: Gogoigood
This master bath is the perfect mix of rustic and contemporary design.  We love how all the different natural stone textures blend together so wonderfully and are really set off by the dark wood cabinets, giving the entire space a real sense of balance without feeling overly effeminate.

We love this freestanding bathroom vanity with dual sinks on opposite sides. This is a great option for a smaller bathroom, allowing homeowners to maximize functional counter space.

This bathroom is proof you don’t need a huge space to have an amazing bathroom with a gorgeous vanity. The thick slab makes a real statement in a smaller bathroom and makes the need for a lot of extra decor minimal.55c151feb28acca368628935-w1000_h1000Photo: Domino
Counter space will never be an issue in this amazing bathroom with a floating vanity that runs the entire length of one wall. We really love the mirror above, especially because no matter what direction you’re facing in this space, you get to enjoy the gorgeous views provided by the wall of floor-to-ceiling windows.

Updating Your Bathroom for 2018

Your bathroom is where you spend a lot of intimate time in your home. It’s where you relax in the tub after a hard day, where you bathe your children, where you brush your teeth. And you deserve to feel good in there. Whether you want to do a full bathroom renovation, or are really just interested in a smaller project, there are so many ways to update your bathroom to help turn it into the space of your dreams. Here are a few of our favorite bathroom trends looking toward 2018.

Shower Plants

We’re not talking about a bouquet of flowers on the counter. Shower plants started trending in 2017 and don’t show any signs of slowing down. This is probably the most simple way to update and brighten up your space. The only limit here is your imagination; it’s all about having real, live plants in your bathroom. And while you can do whatever you want, the look tends to be more about greenery than flowers.

Don’t let the name fool you, the plants don’t have to actually be in your shower. Anywhere in the bathroom will do. The shower does provide the added bonus of eliminating the need to remember to water.4-bathroom-plantsPhoto: Cheshire Mum
The living wall is definitely a cool look, though maybe not practical for every space. Regardless of how many plants you use, you should try and choose ones that will help naturally purify your air.IiY5qYaiCYZlPhoto: Lonny

A Monochromatic Look

The black and white color combination is classic and will never really go out of style. Regardless, the color scheme is seriously trending upward for 2018.

Doing a bathroom in all black & white can instantly create either a vintage or modern feeling. The two toned look below manages to blend the two in a way that is very 2018. The round mirror and gold accents complement the trendy aesthetic quite nicely.

While it’s true that the black & white color scheme lends itself quite well to a modern, industrial look, it can be made as opulent as you like. This luxurious bathroom is a prime example of how swanky the two colors can be, especially when paired with all the mirrors, crystal chandelier, and gorgeous marble countertops. Traditional-and-luxurious-bathroom-in-black-and-whitePhoto: Decoist

Gold & Brass Fixtures

Once thought to be a permanent reminder of the 1980s, gold and brass fixtures are making a huge comeback. Trends really are cyclical and if you wait long enough, it seems true that everything comes back in fashion. It’s important to note that the brass and gold fixtures of today are different than your childhood memories of the finish. Today’s brass is a little more understated, a little less shiny than your parent’s was.

The simple lines of these muted brass fixtures make a huge statement in this gorgeous bathroom. The brass complements the organic wood countertop effortlessly. The trendy black & white floor tile is an unexpected, but fun, touch.  12-2Photo: Luxury Bathrooms

Fish Scale Tile

Also called mermaid tile, this look, as with all things mermaid, is trending hard right now. This versatile look can be placed anywhere you’d use tile, but we are really loving it for the bathroom. It adds a whimsical touch wherever, and makes for a great accent wall or shower tile.

The most common color for mermaid tiles is this dreamy ocean-inspired aqua, though it is available in a number of other colors. thisonePhoto: Mercury Mosaics

Round Vanity Mirrors

One of the easier ways to quickly update your space is with a round vanity mirror. Designers are obsessed with the shape and it almost instantly gives your bathroom a current feel.

The modern shape contrasts beautifully with the rustic vanity.  Reimagining vintage and rustic pieces as bathroom vanities is another look poised to be big in 2018. The mirror creates an even bigger impact when paired with a square shaped vanity and sink as shown below.MG_0162Photo: Park and Oak
