The bathroom is one of the busiest rooms in the house, but it can also be the most neglected in terms of style and design. With that in mind these are the trends to watch out for in 2019/ 2020 to spruce up your bathroom
1. TAP INTO THE TRENDS
Bold, sophisticated and unapologetic, black tapware is set to become a design classic, or add a stylish and practical touch with a matte finish like brushed nickel. Heavy metals are coming up in the ranks.
Weathered brass finishes look stunning against white tiles or boldly coloured walls. Add drama to pastel walls and cabinetry with darker silvers, like pewter feature in Plumbing World’s latest design forecast. “Look out for tapware with colour accents — chrome with black, black with rose gold or white trim”.
2. TILE IT UP
Stacked square tiles are taking over from subway tiles as the go-to look. Feature wallpaper can make a bold statement, especially in toilets and powder rooms, and simple painted or panelled walls are budget-friendly options.
“Basic whites and pale greys are always beautiful, but your bathroom can also be a place for colour romantic reds, breezy blues, enigmatic greys — your bathroom colours set the tone of your day-to-day life,” says Plumbing World.
3. BE BOLD WITH YOUR BASIN
Vessel-style basins can be the hero of the bathroom in their own right, especially if you a short on space. Industrial sinks are an emerging bathroom trend as are coloured concrete styles.
Plumbing World pro tip | A vintage cabinet with a mounted vessel basin works well in an older home, or for a more contemporary look, pair a stunning two-tone black and white cabinet with a countertop basin.
4. SQUEEZE IN MORE STORAGE
The vanity is usually the centre piece of a small bathroom that doesn’t fit a standalone bath, so look for a vanity option that not only looks amazing and has character, but is practical enough to provide ample bench space and storage. “Two-tone vanities are very popular, with different cabinet and drawer colours in woodgrain and coloured finishes” says Plumbing World.
5. MIRROR, MIRROR ON THE WALL
