6 Trends Taking Over The Modern Bathroom

22 September 2020 | 0 comments | Posted by Mia Ackerson in Constructive Criticism

Modern bathroom trends

Your bathroom is one of the essential rooms in your home. It is a place where you get ready for the day ahead but also a place where you come to wind down after a long exhausting day. It is a personal and private space for many. Still, it is also the most overlooked room, and most people pick the first thing that they see in a catalogue when designing a bathroom, which has given it the reputation of being boring.

A bathroom should be a practical and functional space because it is such an important room, but there are a lot of home decor trends you can follow that will take it to the next level.

If you're currently building a new home or looking at renovating your bathroom, then here are a few ideas on how to approach things differently.

1. Go with sleek and modern designs

The minimalist design has been popular in the world over for some time now, as it seems to be the essence of modern design. Streamlined, clean lines and limited use of colour and open spaces are a winner with Millenials and the younger crowd, and it is continuing to be one of the top trends on the market. One of the most popular ways to accomplish the minimalistic look is by incorporating frameless showers. It will not only make your bathroom looking more spacious, but it will give it a spa-like feel.

2. The bold colours trend

The second most popular trend is the use of bold accent colours one. If you want to keep it simple, go with white and black. But if you are ready for something more daring, a stylish way to do so is by making accents with gold, copper, and other rustic colours. Adding a pop of bold colour in a monochrome bathroom is a simple way to create a focal point.

3. Add some technology

The latest trend to hit bathrooms is to add some technology to your bath and hygiene experience. This doesn't mean that you need to have something super expensive, like a cleaning robot or voice-activated water.

It can be something simple like technology that saves water and energy or a cute waterfall tap with LED lights. But if you want something more then you can look into toilets with motion sensors. The key is making your bathroom more functional and efficient and take it to another level.

4. Decorating with fixtures

As people are more aware of just how important, there are many more fixture options being made. There is something that will fit just about anybody's taste from traditional to modern style. But the big trend is to go with ovals instead of going for something with sharp edges.

Oval shapes will make your bathroom look more calming and soft. That is why bidets in Australia and other western countries are becoming a trendy addition once again in the bathrooms. There are so many exciting fixtures that you can use as a focal point, so you get both decor and functionality.

5. Put tiles on your walls

This trend is not only going to take your bathroom to the next level; it is also a very practical one. We all splash water on our walls by accident, that is why this trend is a wall saver. That is because you are both aesthetically and practically improving your bathroom.

If you are not ready to cover all of your walls with tiles, you can start by putting it around the bath and your sink as well as around the shower. Apart from the functional part, tiles are the best way to bring something different and exciting to your bathroom.

That is because it offers a wide variety of shapes with which you can make incredible designs. This trend is perfect for creative people because it provides an aesthetic outcome that will take your bathroom to the next level.

6. Go for unconventional flooring

Your bathroom floors aren't something that everyone will notice unless you deviate from the standard tiling. Now that your classic wooden floras aren't an option, there needs to be something on the floors. To make your bathroom look unique, you need to pick something that will satisfy contemporary demands.

The key is to pick something durable and aesthetically pleasing.

Nowadays, unconventional flooring options like terra cotta, marble tiles, granite, or other natural stones. They will not only complement the bathroom; they are super durable and won't need to be fixed every year.

Make your bathtime one of a kind

No matter if you are updating your bathroom or decorating it from scratch, these top trends will get your creative juices flowing, and maybe you will invent a new direction and become a trendsetter.
