Fall 2020 Bathroom Style Trends

Blog Space 20

Bathroom style trends continue to change as new ideas come into style and old ones fade. That can be a plus, because bathrooms are one of the most frequently used spaces within the home — and that means they often show wear and tear faster than other spaces. Fortunately, trendy bathroom updates are usually simple to do. Since the space isn’t as large as other rooms, these updates are often easy on the budget, too.

Brass finishes are one of the big style trends for 2020 — and it’s an easy trend to incorporate into your bathroom with simple elements. Start with drawer pulls and doorknobs, then consider replacing towel racks with brass or adding a mirror framed in brass.

Shower and sink fixtures can be installed in this shade, too. For an especially trendy look, think about brass that features a vintage patina, and consider leaving plumbing exposed to give your bathroom a truly antique look.

These days, bold statements are on trend. One of the best ways to make that statement is through wallpaper. Choose something featuring eye-catching patterns or bright colors, and use it to create an accent wall or to dress up the wall behind your vanity.

If you’re thinking of dressing up walls with tile or creating a new backsplash, choose a tile with an interesting shape. Curved tiles are popular as are hexagonal and other geometric patterns. A mosaic is a great way to make a big statement.

4. Black Is Back

For so long, black was a color considered one that should be avoided in bathrooms. The focus was on whites and brights to give the room a sense of space. These days, though, black is back because it pulls the focus and gives objects gravity. There are lots of ways to introduce black without going overboard. Consider installing a black freestanding tub, for example, or a vanity in black. Alternatively, black trim, mirror frames and hardware add crisp details to the space.

The most stylish modern bathrooms always make sure to feature a bit of tech. Integrated lighting is one way to do this. Consider installing lights behind your vanity’s mirror to frame it, illuminate the room, and give the mirror a shadowbox effect. Another lighting trend that is becoming popular is lighting beneath a floating vanity, which is a great way to add visual interest to the room.

Traditionally, hardware has been commonly finished with high-shine, gloss finishes — and that includes cabinet and vanity hardware, as well as light fixtures, towel racks, faucets, showerheads and more. These days, matte and brushed finishes are returning into fashion because they have a muted yet chic look. Consider matte black, brass, bronze, nickel or another shade to your liking.

7. Pops of Bold Color

Bold color draws the eye — and that’s why it is becoming a big trend in bathrooms. This includes bright blues, greens, oranges and more. There are lots of ways to incorporate these splashes of color. Accent walls are one option. Boldly colored tiles are another. Though if you have exposed shelving, then these bold colors can be added through decorative touches, such as rolled towels in gemstone shades.

8. Interesting Marble

More and more, trends are steering from traditional marble patterns and toward the unusual. However, boldly striped marble is becoming popular as is marble with big, prominent veins. Consider backsplashes or countertops in this material. If you’re on a budget, marble patterned wallpaper is a trendy alternative that will help you get the look.
