In style, but also in for the long haul
As one of the hardest working rooms in any home, the bathroom deserves its time in the design spotlight too. After you think about the must-haves (toilet, sink, and shower) there’s plenty of opportunity to insert your taste, from the tile down to the hardware. Houseace highlights five ideas we predict will take off next year, based on seeing thousands of bathroom renovations.
Here are the biggest 2019 bathroom trends to look out for:
- Matte black hardware
- Accessible design
- Wood-look tile
- Floating vanities
- Full-tiled walls
Matte Black Hardware
As far as hardware goes, gold and silver don’t even come close to the timelessness of matte black. The neutral, shine-free finish works for all styles, from modern to rustic, and will give any bathroom a polished touch.
One of the most important elements in home design—especially in bathrooms—is finally taking centre stage. From disability bars in showers to higher toilets, making bathrooms easy to use and accessible for those with limited mobility should always be a priority (and is sometimes legally required!).
For very practical reasons, wood (aside from vanities or shelves) is not a common feature in bathrooms. Of course, thanks to wood-look tile, the natural appeal can still be achieved.
Wall-hung vanities do more than just look pretty. The extra space means the flooring can extend to the wall, which makes the room look bigger. Floating vanities also make cleaning easier (less nooks and crannies to deal with).
If you find a tile you love, why not lay it from floor to ceiling? The luxe treatment gives a bathroom a cohesive and clean look, plus is moisture-and-water-resistant.
