Kitchens might be the heart of the home, but bathrooms are definitely the muscle. After all, which room in your home has to double as a dog wash and a makeup station? Of course, making your bathroom one of your favorite rooms in your house has as much to do with style as it does function. As you work to create a bathroom that is fashionable and functional, you’ll want to know about all of the latest 2019 bathroom trends. We’ve rounded up some of the trends that are on their way in and some on their way out.
Instead of paint, try statement wallpaper
After years of being out, wallpaper is back in a big way. And while you might not want to commit to wallpaper in a large space like your living room, the bathroom is the perfect place to experiment. Try a statement wallpaper in a powder room by opting for a bold, graphic print with plenty of contrast. Instant style update!
Instead of gray, try black
It’s one of the oldest pieces of interior design advice: use lighter colors to make a room feel bigger. But darker colors can actually convey more depth, which is a great choice for bathrooms. Skip the gray and paint one wall black to make a room feel deeper, or opt for black fixtures to increase contrast and call attention to the room’s features.
Instead of glam, try industrial
Glam bathrooms (think all-pink, heavy chandeliers and gold features) are on their way out. One of the biggest 2019 bathroom trends is the complete opposite of glam. Industrial chic means heavier fixtures, metal and a more masculine aesthetic. Something as simple as swapping out lighting or even leaving exposed pipes makes a bathroom look more stylish.
Instead of a separate tub and shower, try a wet room
If you have the luxury of designing your bathroom from scratch, consider going with a wet room approach. A wet room is basically a separate tiled space in your bathroom that contains a shower and tub. It makes your bathroom feel more spa-like while still being incredibly easy to clean. An added bonus? It creates separation so someone can use the rest of the bathroom, including sinks, even when someone’s in the shower.
