bathroom design trends

Every year, thousands of Americans undertake home improvement projects to boost the appearance, functionality, level of comfort, and value of their property. According to real estate agents, the bathroom is one of the key areas of the house that’s proven to be a major selling point. It’s also an easy room to remodel when compared to other areas of the home, which is why bathroom renovations are always at the top of the list of improvement projects for homeowners each year.

While functionality and comfort are top priorities in any bathroom remodel, improving a bathroom’s aesthetic appeal with a modern, updated bathroom redesign should also be considered. As we make our way through the second quarter of 2019, we can already witness the latest design trends happening in bathroom spaces across the country that you can use to inspire your upcoming bathroom redesign project this year.

At Luxury Bath of Raleigh, our experienced designers and remodelers love integrating these new ideas with the needs, preferences, requirements, and budgets of our customers. In this article, we will explore eight of the most dominating bathroom design trends we’ve seen in 2019 to help inspire you to start your bathroom upgrade this year.

1. Rounded Rectangle Mirrors

Round mirrors and sharp-edged, square or rectangle-shaped mirrors are now a thing of the past. For 2019, the prevalent trend for vanity mirrors is blending the two together in a rounded rectangular design. This soft-edged, angular mirror style is perfect if you are aiming for that contemporary appeal.

2. Floating Vanities

Floating vanities are characterized by their airy, minimalist design—and the way they seem to add dimension to the confined space of a small bathroom. Many people shy away from floating vanities, believing that they must be difficult to install due to the fact that they suspend in mid-air beneath the mirror, instead of resting on the floor like a traditional vanity.

In 2019, the extra effort in installing these floating vanities seems to be worth the trouble for many. Not only do floating vanities add space and offer a cleaner, more modern look to any bathroom space—they’re also much easier to clean than traditional vanity areas that are attached to a wall.

3. Wall-Mounted Toilets

Yes, you’ve heard it right—wall-mounted toilets are popular in 2019. Just like floating vanities, homeowners are leaning towards minimalist, clean, and simple upgrades, and wall-mounted toilets certainly fit the bill.

In recent years, floating toilets have not been widely adopted, but we’ll see more of these this 2019. Also similar to floating vanities, wall-mounted toilets are easier to maintain because they have fewer nooks and crannies that accumulate dirt.

4. Crystal Clear, Floor-to-Ceiling Shower Enclosures

Perfectly see-through, crystal-clear glass shower enclosures are perfect in 2019 for homeowners seeking a streamlined, modern look. Alternatively, you can go for a single glass panel that also extends from the floor to the ceiling instead of a full enclosure—which will similarly transform your bathroom space with a more modern appeal.

5. Monochromatic Palette

If you’ve noticed, the continuing trend in bathroom design in 2019 is minimalist, clean, and streamlined. A monochromatic palette can give your bathroom that more modern look and sophisticated appeal. Think black, grey, and white and shades of all of these colors to wrap your modern bathroom redesign together.

6. Black Bathrooms

While a monochromatic palette of colors is certainly trending at the moment, it might surprise you to know that basic black is another bathroom trend taking over in 2019. An expert bathroom design specialist can help you put together a breathtakingly modern and high-end bathroom design that’s as elegant as it is sophisticated, using all black tones, textures, and materials.

7. Marble Tiles as Art

Marble tiles are a very common and timeless material for bathroom walls, and this trend continues into 2019. White and grey marble are the dominating styles, and the patterns on these tiles can be used as art on your bathroom walls.

Because real marble tiles can be expensive, tiles made of man-made materials and crafted to look like natural stones are also viable options.

8. Pieces of Art

Picture frames with photos of the beach or cute tiles with catchy slogans have been trending as bathroom design pieces for years. In 2019, however, the art trend has evolved to include fine art in the bathroom—with prints from the homeowner’s favorite artists from Picasso to Frida Kahlo lining the walls of newly renovated bathroom spaces.
