Are you looking to remodel your bathroom come the New Year?
Congratulations! This is an incredibly exciting renovation and one that could change the entire aesthetic of your home. While that statement might seem a tad overdramatic, the bathroom is typically where we begin and end our days.
Of course, a bathroom renovation is going to benefit yourself and your family for the entire duration that you're living in your home. But, it's also going to positively impact your resale value and appeal more to potential buyers. After all, it's been said many times that the bathroom is one of the most important rooms in the eyes of house hunters
If you're looking to remodel your bathroom, you've come to the right place. We're uncovering our ten best modern bathroom design ideas for 2020. Whether it's a console-style vanity and a paneled shower door or a touch of greenery and an ode to natural materials, these are the design trends that are going to reign in the New Year.
1. Console-Style Vanities
When it comes to bathroom vanities, 2019 was all about the floating vanity.
Why was it so popular?
It curated a look that was sharp, modern and it accommodated more minor floorplans. Come 2020, the vanity game is going to be transitioning to one that is just as contemporary but with the addition of legs.
A console-style vanity showcases vanity legs that are clean and minimal. Without allowing the vanity to sit on the ground, this still creates the illusion of more space. With that, we're expecting to see plenty of console-style vanities taking up residence in small powder rooms everywhere.
2. Black Paneled Shower Door
One of the most simple yet significant changes you can make to modernize your bathroom is to opt for a contemporary shower door.
In 2020, we're looking to shower doors that combine a modern aesthetic with the art of minimalism. That's right, it's time to bid an official goodbye to that shower curtain you've had since you first moved in.
So, when it comes time to remodel your bathroom, why not opt for a black paneled shower door? Looking into the future, we're seeing this shower door in all of the swankiest hotels and residences.
It's safe to say this showstopper is going to become the focal point of your entire bathroom. If you're looking to save on cost, you can opt for a half-shower door that looks just as good as the full-shower door.
3. Natural Materials
Any home decor magazine will tell you that 2019 was dominated by bold and opaque materials. In 2020, it looks like we're going to be taking a break from the opaque.
Remember, it's not goodbye. It's see you another time.
For the time being, we're going to be transitioning to more natural materials such as wood. With this, we'll be seeing an increase of wooden countertops, stools, accents and even wooden flooring.
4. Polished Concrete Flooring
One of the most extreme forecasts into the 2020 bathroom world comes in terms of flooring. If you're ready to incorporate a significant change into your bathroom renovation, this one's for you.
Goodbye marble tiling and hello polished concrete.
Polished concrete flooring has become popular in the living spaces of industrial homes. It offers a vibe that's sharp, modern and delightfully clean and minimal.
So, why stop when it comes to the bathroom? Polished concrete is especially eye-catching when paired with an all-white color scheme, natural finishes and a touch of greenery. This helps to provide an added sense of warmth to any industrial, concrete-heavy space.
Pro tip: If you're worried about how cold a concrete bathroom floor might feel, don't fret. Instead, be sure to warm it up with a soft and welcoming rug. This will help to balance out the overall feel of the bathroom.
5. French Doors
Is there anything more perfectly vintage than a pair of french doors?
French doors have been in the spotlight since what feels like the beginning of time. In fact, the origin of french doors can be traced back to the seventeenth century. Since then, it feels as though french doors have always found their way into any and every type of residence.
Come 2020, we're expecting to see french doors overtake the bathroom as we know it. With minimal effort, this helps to showcase an elevated and extravagant aesthetic.
6. A Touch of Shower Greenery
Who knew that a touch of nature could go such a long way in a bathroom?
Sure, plants have been having a serious moment in the spotlight for as long as we can remember. But, we're going to start seeing greenery pop up in the bathroom as we've never seen it before.
Most prominent, we're going to see a touch of greenery finding itself within all the trendiest showers. While this is going to attract all different varieties of greenery, we're especially counting on plenty of Eucalyptus.
Not only does Eucalyptus look great, but it also carries a number of medical benefits. Of the 400 different species of Eucalyptus, all have proven effective in reducing symptoms of cough, cold and congestion.
7. A Dominant Pastel Color Scheme
In 2019, it was all about that dark color scheme.
We're talking matte black fixtures, dark green and navy wall colors and some serious black tiling. While there's no denying this remains a winning combination for nearly any bathroom, it's looking as though things are going to lighten up.
As we inch toward 2020, we can look forward to a light and pastel color scheme in the bathroom. We're going to be seeing an increase of pastel pinks, peaches, teals, and yellows.
Let's think sixties style but with a modern twist.
In terms of fixtures, we're going to see more bathrooms stepping away from matte black. Instead, you can look forward to a more light and airy color scheme. With this, we're looking to trace our roots back to the world of bronze, ivory and brushed nickel fixtures.
8. Herringbone Flooring
In 2020, we're all about the herringbone. Be it wood, tile or stone, we're not exactly picky.
Herringbone flooring accommodates a wide "V" shaped pattern of the tiling. The tiles are laid out at a 45-degree angle to the next. It's the perfect means of curating a flooring plan that combines luxurious sharp lines with a contemporary aesthetic.
As for color, we're forecasting a light and simple color schemes such as polished chrome, stone, and off-white.
9. Wall Sconce Lighting
It's safe to say that 2019 was the year of pendant lighting.
Be it the kitchen, the dining or the living, it was nearly impossible to avoid pendant lighting. As we prepare for 2020, we're omitting the ceiling light in favor of a simple yet mightly wall light.
Welcome to the wall sconce, ladies and gentlemen. This light fixes perfectly into nearly any wall and can provide anything from ambient lighting to task lighting. If you find such lighting too dim, you can pair it with a more central pendant light or even a chandelier.
Pro tip: Go the extra mile and opt for a dimmer. This will allow you to transition the bulb from dim to full brightness depending on the time of day.
10. The Doorless Shower
So, you're looking to create a shower that you and your guests will never forget?
As we approach 2020, it's safe to say that open, doorless showers are the way to go. This creates an unforgettable vibe that is both clean-lined and ultra-minimal.
Not only does this look incredibly impressive, but it also creates a more open floorplan in your bathroom. This is perfect for smaller, more closed-off bathrooms that could benefit from the illusion of larger square footage.
It's safe to report that it's time to go doorless.
