Bathroom Interior Trends for 2020

28 January 2020

Time and time again the New Year has become our opportunity for a reboot. And arbitrary as it may be, it is indeed the time to leave behind what’s bad and embrace what’s new and good. So if you can’t imagine tackling a full renovation in one shot, a perfect place to start is in your bathroom. Whether you’ve finally had it with those pink subway tiles or are finally ready to bid adieu to that horribly leaky faucet, there’s endless design inspiration to kick-start your bathroom remodel.

Brass Finishes

Brass finishes are still a great way to add a little luxury to your bathroom life. For sure, master bathrooms would feel like a sanctuary when you incorporate those brass finishes.

Deep Soaking Tubs

Deep soaking bathtubs never go out of style. For one, they function to serve homeowners the comfort they deserve and they provide Art Deco-inspired bathroom vibes.

Integrated Lighting

Statement powder rooms are nothing new, but with the continued advancements in lighting technology, recent bathroom trends are able to integrate lighting into the architecture in increasingly exciting, effective ways.

Marbleised Wallpaper

Marbleized wallpaper in small powder rooms and alcoves are absolutely in style. It is the perfect blend of a ‘wow!’ moment while presenting a glamorous, but contemporary look.


As trends turn towards warmer, earth tones, the bathroom is heading in that direction by shunning white marble in favour of stones with warmer hues like travertine and limestone. In this bathroom design, a warm travertine floor is paired with lots of luxurious fabric.

Framed Mirrors

You can never go wrong with a framed mirror in your bathroom. It instantly upgrades the space.

Unusual Marbles

Rich, bold, and unusual marble is a trend worth loving. People are staying away from the usual Carrera and Calcutta Gold and are taking risks on unique materials such as Zebrino, Arabascato and Paonazzo, which are like art installations when done right.

Black Tubs

Including a black freestanding tub into a bathroom design will add a bit of opulence to the space. When combined with exceptional plumbing fixtures, this makes for a striking focal point in an otherwise serene space.

Shaped Tile

The rectangle subway tile is getting pushed out of the way for funkier shapes like hexagons and scallops. Opting for a shaped tile pattern is a great way to make an impact if you aren’t willing to commit to a big color


Dramatic Powder Rooms

Powder rooms and small bathrooms are starting to have their own moments with drama! Adding in interesting tile as a backsplash with dark paint or using ornate wallpaper in the entire space is creating a mood that people love because it’s unexpected. And unexpected can make for an exciting experience.

Partially Tiled Walls

Rather than tiling an entire wall or just the wet areas, like the shower, bringing the tile up to a picture rail, chair rail, or halfway up a wall adds an unexpected design element to a space. It can also create a ledge or shelf for bathroom accessories and necessities.”

Brushed Brass

Brushed brass has a romantic feel and a subtle glamour that stuns against natural stone. Even as a small accent, like the frame of a mirror or the base of a sconce, brushed brass makes a major impact

Freestanding Tubs

Freestanding tubs elevate the space by giving your bathroom a modern, sculptural feel.
