From earthy accents to open shower concepts, these trends will be sure to add to your design, functionality, and overall appeal of your new and improved bathroom.

Wood Accents 

If you’re looking to add a touch of nature into your living space, natural wood accents are the way to go this year. It adds a hint of warmth, texture and traditional style to your interior design. There are endless opportunities to spice up your bathroom with wooden elements – whether it’s with a wooden cabinet, sink, or even a wooden bathtub. If you’re looking for more budget-friendly options, a wood mirror frame or a shelf on the wall can add an earthy feel to your bathroom.

Open Showers

Open showers have become an increasingly popular trend in 2020. This feature helps to visually increase the size of your bathroom and makes it a more spacious layout with increased shower space. Open showers are also proven to be more accessible due to a lower entry way and opportunity for people to add wall-mounted benches or shower seats inside. With an open shower look, it may be preferred to have a separate bathtub if space permits. For a modern appeal and an easy way of opening up your space – the open shower trend is the way to go.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

Unusual and non-traditional mirrors are catching people’s attention this year to spice up their bathrooms. Asymmetrical and geometric mirror shapes are allowing people to get creative in their bathroom design. These frameless and funky mirrors are definitely an eye catcher and add a nice touch to modern bathrooms. Many people are also gravitating to “smart mirrors” that have features such as an anti-fog function, LED lights, and a built in Bluetooth speaker. Some of these mirrors also have options where they can read out the weather or news to you while you are getting ready.

Touch of Nature

 Using plants to add a pop of colour and a touch of nature to your bathroom remodel goes a long way. No matter the design of your bathroom, having a plant or two in your space will brighten up the room. Having decorative indoor plants are low maintenance and colourful accessories for your bathroom. Whether it is a hanging plant from the ceiling or showcasing some vibrant greenery on a shelf – they will be sure to spice up the look of your bathroom. When pairing this greenery with wooden accents, it’s also a great look for a more traditional, yet classic design for your bathroom.

Wallpaper Is Back!

Wallpaper is back and better than ever for bathroom design. No matter what your bathroom design – minimalistic, traditional, modern – there is something for everyone with wallpaper. There are endless possibilities with colourful patterns, bold designs, or embracing texture with your wallpaper. A small powder room is a great place to start when experimenting with wallpaper and there are many options available. For example, removable wallpaper if you want a shorter-term bathroom solution.
