Hit the reset button on your bathroom this year with these trending design elements. From contemporary marble to statement art to modern barn doors, we take a look at what’s hot in 2019 for the modern lavatory.
1: Statement Art and Walls
Bathrooms are often understated and simply designed. Considering how much time you spend in this small but important room (women spend an opens in a new windowaverage of 39 minutes a day on hair and makeup alone—much of that time in the bathroom), why not add some character to the space? Framed posters and prints as well as eye-catching wallpaper patterns are in this year. They’re a great way to add flair and play with light, especially in bathrooms with no windows.
2: Gray and White Marble
It sounds old-fashioned, but it doesn’t have to be. Large slabs of gray and white in bathrooms are trending in 2019. Marble adds sophistication, it’s timeless, and it goes well with both traditional and modern bathroom styles, so it’s an ideal choice if you plan to sell your home at some point. Marble is also porous and durable, so it’s a good choice for bathrooms.
3: Interior Sliding Glass Doors
Sleek and contemporary interior glass doors and glass dividers are increasingly popular in bathrooms. Ideal for smaller or odd-shaped spaces, sliding doors ease entrance into the space and create an interesting focal point. Frosted or smoked glass adds privacy while panels can be used in any combination to create exactly the look you want.
4: Exposed Plumbing
We’re seeing this everywhere in 2019, especially in showers: exposed hardware and plumbing lines. We’re not talking about old galvanized pipes, of course. Copper, bronze, chrome, or pewter-coated lines create a sleek, industrial-chic look. And, exposed plumbing complements gray and white marble.
5: Open-Concept Floor Plans
Open floor plans have been popular for decades, starting with the explosion of ranch-style homes in the 1950s. That popularity remains strong and has found its way into the bathroom. Designers are increasingly replacing interior walls with private barriers made of opaque or frosted glass. Vanities, tubs, and showers are now being merged into dressing and closet areas and even the bedroom. This open-concept design creates a seamless transition from room to room that feels grand.
