TREND #1. BLACK IS BACK
Grey may have been one of the most popular styles in 2018 and 2019 bathroom remodeling projects, however, that’s all about to change.We’re moving on to bolder, darker styles this season. Grey is great, but black is better! Overall, darker tones, specifically black, are here. We saw so many grey bathrooms this past year, but expect to see an increase in black bathrooms.This trend is most popular in light fixtures, vanities, mirrors, and other fixtures- especially with matte finishes! Since some homeowners may be hesitant when it comes to adding these even darker tones to their homes, grey may continue to be a top choice for those looking to stray away from a classic white or neutral color, but aren’t quite ready for the boldness of black.
TREND #2. BRASS & GOLD MAKE A COMEBACK
Gold fixtures are back and better than ever! Shades of brass and gold are taking over sinks, toilets, and basically anything and everything in your bathroom this year. Erase the memories of your Grandparent’s bathroom brass faucet, because this lovely new warm toned gold plumbing fixtures will become your new go to, adding just the right amount of depth, dimension, and luxury feel to any space.
Homeowners love the change to warmer accents with the brass/gold toned bathroom fixtures versus the traditional shiny polished chrome which conveys a more cool, modern, and sleek feel. Offered in new finish options like in satin, matte, and spun gold this subtle change is just what was needed to add that classic traditional element to any space. With the added bonus of keeping fingerprints and water spots hidden.
This warmer tone has become the accent pieces of a room, with complimenting hardware, light fixtures, and mirrors as well. Look around and you will find more gold tone items than you think. The reason for the comeback–it just looks great in so many different style settings.
TREND #4. INDUSTRIAL SINKS & VANITIES
While this style may not be for everyone, it’s very current and you should expect to see an increase in popularity for this type of design with the coming year! With all the metal finish possibilities, wooden accents, and funky tile patterns, it only makes sense that the industrial vanity is in. Its sleek and modern look fits in perfectly with this edgy, yet classy remodeling trend. Industrial sinks can be matched with pop’s of colors, gold or brass accents, matte black fixtures, and fun tile patterns to modernize the look even more. Industrial vanities are a great look for smaller apartments or your hall bathroom. This urbanized and trendy style is sure to make a statement in 2020, so don’t miss out!
TREND #4. UNIQUE TILE PATTERNS
We have already seen how technology is allowing manufacturers to create all sorts of designs using basic tiles, but now they are going beyond the colors and graphics to change the traditional tile shape into something more interesting.
We are seeing a resurgence of the once beloved tiles of decades past, plus a few new designs. No longer are we content with just a subway tile or a large format tile on the wall. We have lots of tile shapes to choose from once again. So, look for new and improved hexagon, arabesque, diamond, Moroccan fish scales, or chevron patterns in new colors & textures. These eye-catching shapes will not just grace the floor either; they will also be used as bathroom backsplashes, on shower walls, and possibly ceiling accents to create the bold accents we so desire.
If you are looking for a safe way of livening up your bathroom, this is one of the best trends to try out in 2020.
TREND #5. WOOD ACCENTS ARE IN AGAIN

Various shades of wood can compliment white, blue, green, and darker colored bathroom. Practically anywhere! Wood accents pair nicely with vintage and industrial trends so it’s no surprise that they’re popping up again. This look adds a classically traditional style to you other wise trendy and modern bathroom. We’re seeing it in unique styles too!

TREND #6. ADDING SPLASHES OF COLOR
As we continue to stray further and further from gray tones, we expect to see an increase of colorful accents, fixtures, and accessories in bathrooms. These pops of color pair nicely with a neutral shade, either light or dark! You may have heard of green or blue kitchens becoming more popular, and while this is true, expect to see those colors in upcoming 2020 bathroom remodels. The specific color chosen can be used to set various moods. For example, pops of blue in homes is said to increase relaxation levels. On the other hand, green brings about the feelings of nature and wellness. Other colors may even boost your mood and creativity levels. This is a fun way to add a unique touch to your otherwise blah bathroom! Which color would you want to add during your 2020 bathroom design remodel?
TREND #7. BIG TUBS & OPEN SHOWERS
As the bathroom changes, the possibilities for expansion and more space come to mind. In fact, the goal of having more space is oftentimes the number one reason why home owners choose to remodel. This includes the bathroom too! With compact storage options, you give yourself more room to expand on the bath or shower.
The bigger the bathtub, the more space and relaxation will be available to you. Homeowners deserve a place to wind down after a long day, and what better place to do so than their own bathrooms? While Jacuzzi styled tubs aren’t necessarily are popular as they used to be, we’re seeing a shift in preferences to other large tub styles.
Open showers appear to visually increase the size of your bathroom, while also giving it more space and providing convenience for users. Long gone are the days of worrying about slipping over the edge of the tub while you’re trying to get out and dry off. While some may find this design has a lack of privacy, others enjoy the accessible openness and increased shower space.
