Bathroom renovations can be complicated, your design should marry form and function, but you are also looking to wow guests and enjoy the tranquility of the space yourself as well.

1. High-Tech Bathrooms

Smart lights and smart toilets have been incorporated in bathrooms for the past few years. This year the bathroom is getting a technological makeover, from smart mirrors to smart showers and built-in sound systems there is no holding back when it comes to the most private of rooms. Smart showers can be set to automatically start and be at the perfect temperature before you even enter the room, smart mirrors can display the weather and allow you to view the top news stories as you are getting ready for work, some even incorporate a touch screen and TV streaming within the mirror. Built-in sound systems allow you to enjoy your personal playlist throughout your home, including the bathroom. There is also a slew of voice activated features available that include voice activated lights, towel warmers, and heated floors. As technology continues to creep into our bathrooms, the experience becomes more relaxing and convenient.

2. Simplified Storage

Under sink bathroom cabinets tend to be jam packed, and unorganized. A trend we have seen this year is to simplify bathroom storage by utilizing space more efficiently and eliminating open storage spaces. Floor to ceiling cabinets and shelves will help keep your toiletries and towels organized. Keeping the countertop, cabinets, and hidden storage areas more organized will help the entire room look and feel more open and provide a more relaxing environment.

3. Floating Vanities

Floating bathroom vanities have been popular for some time now, and they continue to be in demand. With new designs and built-in compartments for organizing and storage, you do not need to give up important storage space to achieve the refined look floating vanities provide.

4. Black Is In

Grey was an extremely popular bathroom colour choice over the past couple years, 2020 has seen darker shades move up as the popular colour choice. Black is bold and pops just the right amount when mixed in with a classic white bathtub, sink, or tile. Everything from faucets to towel racks, mirrors and beyond are now available in black, and people are loving it.

5. Colour Accents

If you are now quite ready to embrace black in your bathroom, another popular trend for 2020 is to leverage bright and colourful accents in the bathroom. Teal, pink, blue, and green are all popular choices as the pair up effortlessly with neutral shades. These bright pops of colour are a fun way to break up an otherwise plain room, but still, maintain a classic look. Specific colours can even help enhance your mood, if you are looking to relax, or perhaps boost your creativity, pops of certain colours can help.

6. Not Just Your Standard Mirror

Unique mirror shapes and designs have increased in popularity and are available in a variety of forms and sizes, allowing your imagination to run wild when it comes to incorporating a visually appealing mirror into your bathroom design. However, asymmetrically shaped mirrors are not where the trend stops. We mentioned smart mirrors in the technology section above, mirrors are now more than just delivering you your reflection, they incorporate touch screens, built-in speakers and USB charging, they can let you see what you would look like with a different hair colour or outfit, and one of the most popular options are mirrors with built-in lighting to ensure you always have the right amount of light to get ready, putting function back at the top of the list of features available with today’s bathroom mirrors.
