2019 Bathroom Remodeling Trends
Are you remodeling a bathroom in 2019? Bathrooms aren’t the kind of rooms that get redone on a whim. Unlike other rooms which can be updated with new paint colors, throw pillows, and the like, bathrooms and kitchen updates involve fixtures, tile, and counter choices which will need to work for a longer haul. As such, you’re looking for up to date inspiration and new materials wisely mixed with timeless staples. From bathtubs and showers, to sinks and vanities, we’ve got you covered. New textures, patterns, prints, finishes, and styles of all sorts are here for the coming year. From sleek and modern, to industrial and vintage, you’re sure to find some inspiration below.
1. COMEBACK OF THE YEAR: BRASS & GOLD
Gold fixtures are back, people! Remember when everyone was tearing out their brass faucets, door knobs, fan hardware, etc. and changing out anything gold-toned for silver, brushed nickel, and chrome? Cool silver tones will always be classic, but gold has returned and is better than ever. What’s old is new again, and gold has a luxurious, stylish feel after its style hiatus.
Gold fixtures in a vintage style add a timeless and luxurious lookShades of brass and gold are taking over sinks, toilets, and basically anything and everything in your bathroom this year. Offered in new finish options like in satin, matte, and brushed bronze, the warm tone is just what is needed to add a sumptuous, opulent vibe to any setting, with the added bonus of hiding fingerprints and water spots well!
2. MODERN WITH TIMELESS CHARACTER
This style has been very popular for a while now, but it’s still gaining traction, so you can expect to see even more of this type of design in 2019. With a multitude of metal finish possibilities, wooden accents, and tile pattern options, it’s an edgy, but classy remodeling trend. Industrial sinks can be matched with pops of color, gold or brass accents, matte black fixtures, and funky tile patterns to modernize the look even more. “It’s the industrial look that’s going to be sweeping bathroom trends in 2019,” says Cristina Miguelez, content manager for Fixr.com. “Look for exposed pipe-style legs for consoles, as well as industrial, pipe-style faucets and shower valves.”
3. TILE ON
The popular tile shapes and styles of decades past are experiencing a massive resurgence in popularity! The classic subway tile remains a go-to, but hexagon, arabesque, diamond, Moroccan fish scales, and chevron patterns are all in high demand again. Even better, new patterns and textures are being offered in these classic shapes, adding a chic dash to traditional elegance. These eye-catching shapes are not limited to floors, but are being used as bathroom backsplashes, on shower insets and walls, and in other accent areas to create a bold, custom look.
4. WARM WOODS
With the return of warmer tones and accents, wood is again making a big style statement. Wood accents can complement any design style, and a variety of wood tones work with a multitude of colors. Wood accents blend beautifully with vintage and industrial trends, but look equally at home in a sleek, contemporary design. With its versatility, this material is only limited by your creativity.
5. IT’S HIP TO FLOAT
It’s all about the float. Floating vanities are on trend, and so is the floating toilet. In the past, floating vanities were the territory of strictly contemporary styles. However, when combined with wood tones and gold-tone fixtures, the style is being used in a much larger range of designs. This sleek, yet airy look adds visual space to a bathroom, and is easy to clean under. (Who doesn’t love that?)
Similarly, the floating toilet will experience new heights of popularity in 2019. With clean lines and ease of cleaning, floating toilets make a statement while being subtle at the same time.
6. HEART OF GLASS
The longevity of glass as style element can be attributed to its elegance and versatility. Glass can be a neutral material in your design strategy, or can feature prominently. In the never-ending battle to make bathrooms feel larger and more open, a glass shower or tub enclosure that is almost invisible wins. In addition, glass enclosures and showers spotlight your style choices by putting your tile design and fixtures on display. Go for seamless drama with a floor-to-ceiling glass enclosure on your shower or the updated classic look of a frameless glass shower. It’s the lack of frames throughout that draw many homeowners to this innovative shower design. Glass shower stalls can also make a sophisticated statement with color and unique patterns or texture in your bathroom design.
Glass showers are now available in a range of configurations, sizes, and designs, with a variety of hardware selections. They are low maintenance and work well with any décor theme. In short, you simply can’t go wrong with glass!
