Big Bathroom Trends of 2019

Porcelain Statuario Bookend Shower Walls And Silestone Chrome

Bubble bath lovers rejoice, as this month we look at what 2019 will bring for the world of bathroom design. We can’t shake the industrial trend of recent years, however more attention will be paid to sustainable home design and people looking to upgrade their tubs may be pleased to hear that baths are getting bigger.

Big, big baths - According to home renovation and design website Houzz, 80% of its users are planning to upgrade their bathtubs, an increase from the year before. People are taking space from hallways and closets to expand their bathrooms creating open, spa-like spaces. And destination tubs are the focal point. Large, free-standing tubs made from concrete or copper in the industrial style we’ve seen creep in to every room over recent years. However, pair the stark, industrial tub with wicker baskets and marble tiles to create that luxury spa experience.

Matte black for taps - The 2019 trend of matte black fixtures isn’t reserved for kitchens. A growing number of home owners are looking for alternatives to the long tradition of white bathroom wares. Matte black taps and basins will be particularly popular paired with soothing marble tiles, or “millennial pink” paint for the youths among us.

Reclaimed and recycled – With a push for people to make more sustainable choices, home design has embraced the use of recycled and reclaimed materials when redecorating. Unpainted, wooden vanities repurposed from your old chest of drawers and topped with a granite off-cut, not only adds texture, warmth and charm to a bathroom, it’s an environmentally considerate choice.
