The latest and greatest Bathroom Design Ideas for 2020 and beyond

This is our first of a series of blogs that will become a full bathroom renovation guide. 

The opening chapter looks at the bathroom design ideas that can help you make the best choice and give you the best end result – not just for today but into the years ahead.

Let’s start with the important step of choosing a style of bathroom before you begin the bathroom renovation process. Remember, that your bathroom will need to suit you and the needs of your home.

There’s more than one way to help you choose from the best bathroom styles and find one that suits you and your home.

Finding your way through the maze of bathroom designs

There are a whole host of bathroom designs that may catch your eye. The important thing to do before you begin your bathroom renovation is to decide on what will work for your home.

It is an easy mistake to make in choosing what you think is a wonderful bathroom design only to find that it doesn’t suit your home and your dream bathroom has suddenly turned to a nightmare.

It’s easy to be caught up in what’s considered the latest bathroom trends but will it work for you.

Bathroom Design ideas

Creating a bathroom that suits your personality and the overall look of your home is not as easy as it seems. There are a number of designs to consider, including;

  • Traditional
  • Contemporary
  • Retro
  • Naturalistic
  • Asian
  • Scandinavian
  • Industrial

What will work for you is a matter of taste and bigger picture thinking.

Matching styles

A key point with any choice of bathroom is to find the style that suits the bathroom itself, the needs of the people using it and the way it fits within the overall home.

There can be a clash with creating a bathroom that works against the look and charm of the home.

If you have a traditional style throughout the house – from the entrance through to the kitchen, bedrooms, lounge and dining area, it is a strange and jarring contrast to have a modern style bathroom with sharp lines and styling.

Whilst a bathroom is a stand-alone feature, it needs to be a part of the continuity of the home.

Any room that works against rather than with the home can have an unsettling effect on the user. This is especially important when it comes to a bathroom.

The bathroom trends for 2020

There are a number of exciting trends ahead for the bathroom of 2020.

Larger tiles are the first port of call. Being easier to clean while expanding the bathroom space is a great feature.

Tapware that adds a statement to the room is another winning element. Coloured and curved tapware will be a trendsetting mark in the 2020 bathroom.

Colour trends are all up for grabs in 2020. There’s a move towards the pale pinks and black but this could mean you are up for a further renovation and re-painting when this fad passes. Pink is not a long-lasting choice of colour and black is already overused.

With bathroom space becoming an integral issue, the idea of making your bathroom smaller with darker colours is on its way out.

One of the strongest trends is blue – that’s a Mediterranean blue working with white or a deep blue that showcases your new look vanity mirror.

Finding a vanity that’s not in vain

Choosing a vanity that has both character and practicality will be another of the key bathroom trends for 2020.

This can be a centrepiece of the bathroom and create a mood for the entire room. Using your new vanity as the focal point will help you create a unique and inviting space.

Planning ahead gives you greater scope for using the space and furnishing it in the best way.
