5 Top Bathroom Trends of 2019 That Could Help Inspire Your Next Renovation Project

If your bathroom needs refurbishment this year, here are some of the top bathroom trends that you can use for inspiration in 2019. Some of the trends below have been around for a while while others have made an appearance for the first time this year.

Whatever you are looking to achieve with your new bathroom design take a look at what’s popular this year.

1) Wallpaper in the bathroom

Wallpaper in the bathroom, yes we know it sounds crazy. Wallpaper is usually the last thing you would think of when it comes to decorating your bathroom, but advances in technology have meant that it is now possible to install wallpaper in the bathroom without it slipping off the walls and getting ruined when wet.

When it comes to the style of wallpaper to be used, you should be looking at bold colours and patterns. The wallpaper that’s suitable for bathroom use isn’t cheap, with some companies charging £700 per square meter. If money isn’t an object though you can get creative and really make your bathroom stand out from the crowd. After all, how many people do you know have a statement wallpaper piece in their bathroom?

2) Dark or black bathrooms

Going all black in the bathroom is a major statement and it isn’t going to be for everyone. It won’t work in all bathrooms either, most often, the effect looks best when you have a big bathroom. Black walls and ceilings can feel constricting in smaller rooms so it’s important to look at your bathroom to see if it’s big enough. If your bathroom has high ceilings the effect is spectacular.

When using black in your bathroom you should match it up with some metal fixtures and fittings. Silver looks great as does gold, you can see more about metal fixtures later on in this article.

3) Art deco bathrooms.

Art deco bathrooms are still around in 2019 and if anything I see more and more people looking to implement the style in their own home. Art deco was made famous in the 1920s and is famously associated with geometric shapes and intricate details. When art deco is mentioned think of the Great Gatsby movie and you should get the picture.

Art deco bathrooms work well in larger bathrooms as the space in the room allows you to soak in all of the details that are on show. In a smaller bathroom, the intricate details may be too much and cause the space to feel too crowded.

4) Floor to ceiling tiles

Floor to ceiling tiles are very popular in 2019 and I think the reason for its rise in popularity is that most homes now have small bathrooms and the floor to ceiling tile look makes the room look bigger.

Floor to ceiling tiles are also relatively inexpensive and can make your home feel more luxurious without breaking the bank. If you do implement floor to ceiling tiles then you should accompany the look with floating bathroom fixtures. Sinks, urinals, shelves and much more can all be floated to give that spa feel in your own home.

5) Metal finished fixtures

Forget chrome in the bathroom that was so 2018, in 2019 you should be looking at brass, copper and gold fixtures in the bathroom. Getting rid of the chrome adds to the luxury of the bathroom and if you are thinking of finishing your fixtures off in anything other than chrome you are in trend this year.

If you want to create a traditional bathroom you could go for copper or gold pipes. Be sure to spend as much as you can afford on these fixtures and don’t cheap out as the cheaper versions can look a bit tacky and they won’t last long either.

2019 has seen some of the old classics like art deco come into fashion while new technologies have allowed the printing of stunning bathroom friendly wallpapers to appear. Black bathrooms were around in 2018 but have seen a major push this year in many of the interior design magazines and we think they will be around for a while.
