Bathrooms are getting more and more attention in the interior world and in 2020, people are just as interested in how to decorate their bathrooms as they are their living room and kitchen. As the focus on bathrooms increases, so does the desire to follow current trends – and there are plenty of them.

Everyone is trying to innovate their bathroom and find “the next big thing.” Here are some of the trends we’ll see grow in 2020.

Spacious and green

One of the trends we see in new houses and apartments is that bathrooms are prioritized when it comes to the square footage. Other rooms are often downsized to make space for the bathroom. We want our bathrooms to be more spacious and have room for more than the absolutely necessary.

If you want to elevate your bathroom, use some fresh green plants. It brings a bit of colour into an otherwise minimalistic and clean space, as well as creating a calm and relaxing atmosphere. It’s something we have seen in interior magazines for a few years now and plants will always be a timeless trend.

Another big trend is to integrate the bathroom with your bedroom and remove the divider between the two rooms. This makes both the bedroom and bathroom seem larger and gives your home a modern and minimalistic look.

Tiles and colours

During the last years, people have started to be more colourful while decorating – and not only in the living room or bedroom. We’ve seen a lot of walls painted in different shades of blue, a colour palette which is also being used more and more in the bathroom.

and green shades are super trendy right now, especially due to the calming effect these colours have on us. Blue is often associated with water and harmony and is, therefore, a perfect choice for your bathroom.

Warmer shades

If you’re not the biggest fan of the cold and blue colour palette, warmer colours like pink and shades of terracotta are also popular this year. Combine them with beige or shades of white and use big tiles on both the floor and walls.

Darker colours

We’ll also continue to see a lot of darker colours, mostly warm and cold grey and blue shades, especially in bathrooms with windows and natural light. A warm grey colour pairs beautifully with wood.

Shower and bathtub

The shower and the bathtub are the bathroom centrepieces and should be treated as such. Modern showers are simple and minimalistic but still have a little extra to it. Most of them have a “waterfall” showerhead where the water falls from the ceiling. Use glass doors with some structure or maybe black metal frames.

The bathtubs are also being shown off a little more these days, often placed in the centre of the room instead of being hidden away in a corner. You’ll also find bathtubs that are built into one of the walls, often very large ones with simple lines.
