The start of a new decade brings a collection of new trends that are sure to inspire your next bathroom renovation. Bathrooms can often be neglected, but they are more than just a functional spot in your home. They can offer an oasis of tranquillity for you and your family. Smart and luxurious bathrooms provide space to retreat, relax and unwind.

So, whether you’re looking to make a big impression with a small space or looking to make a decorative splash, these 2020 trends will stimulate your interior creativity.  

What is the most popular bathroom style for 2020?

The industrial revolution of 2020.

Over the past couple of years, we’ve seen contemporary bathrooms using highlight colours such as black and gun metal greys on key bathroom features. This trend is set to continue in 2020, with dark colouring being empathised throughout the bathroom style. The use of minimalist shapes and textures will be used to create a bold style statement that is sleek and solid.

Black colouring is the key to this new trend, contrasted with simplistic white metro tiles to fashion an indulgent high-end experience, which is sure to impress your house guests time and time again.


What materials are currently on trend for bathrooms?

In previous years we have seen the obsession with rose gold grow to great heights, creating the original metallic finishes trend.

However, in 2020 we predict that rose gold will take a back-seat role, while gold will sit firmly in the driver’s seat along with muted soft delicate finishes such as English bronze. This trend is all about adding metallic yet delicate finishing touches to your bathroom. From taps to wallpaper and storage, there are many metallic products available to tie all your bathroom elements together. This trend is used to evoke a genuine experience with a luxurious edge.


What neutral bathroom trends are there for 2020?

Many may be hesitant to take the deep dark plunge that is industrial dark bathrooms. But fear not! If you see your bathroom as a calm space to create time for yourself, then the modern minimalist trend is the perfect match for you. This entire trend is centred around the notion of minimalism, utilising whites, ivories and greys to design a high-quality bathroom. Few accessories and textures are used for this style to emphasise the decluttered effect.

Don’t forget, you can still stay neutral and make your bathroom feel both classy and deluxe.


Regardless of your bathroom shape and size, 2020 will see the creation of numerous lavish bathroom trends which are sure to meet the needs of all interior styles. What better way to celebrate a new decade than with a stylish bathroom renovations that will go the distance.
