When you picture a bathroom, what do you see? I envision a fairly standard space. Hence, lots of white tiles and a vanity with a few drawers and a cabinet. If it’s clean, modern, and functional. Thus, It’s satisfying. But according to the pros, the bathrooms of the future have much more to offer. Here, the biggest, most surprising bathroom trends you’ll see in 2019.
“Wallpaper is back and making a statement in bathrooms again. Thus, especially powder rooms where steam is not an issue,” says Janet Lorusso, owner and principal designer at JRL Interiors. But don’t be surprise if you see playful paper popping up in more. Also, more full baths as well, she adds.
“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. Also, industrial, pipe-style faucets and shower valves.”. You may even spot concrete countertops, adds Shawn Breyer, owner of Breyer Home Buyers in Atlanta, Georgia. “Whether your bathroom is contemporary or traditional. Therefore, concrete countertop surfaces are complementary to most styles with hues ranging from earthy to vivid.”
“Color, color, color,” says Nancy Epstein, founder and CEO of Artistic Tile. “You’re going to see color coming into cabinetry, details, and definitely into backsplashes. People are tired of only white and gray.” Look for pops of emerald green, deep blues, or even bold blacks
“In years past, terrazzo was seen as an outdated trend. Thus, that needed to be covered with another surface to update older homes,” says Charlotte Russell, COO at TREND Transformations. But terrazzo is making a major comeback. Hence, thanks to its durability and longevity. As an added bonus. Also, it’s available in a wide variety of color options and is rich in textures, says Russell.
