Are you looking to update your bathroom in 2020? Perhaps you have plans to replace the plumbing fixtures or upgrade the lighting.

Heating in All the Right Places

No one likes stepping out of the shower onto a cold floor. A bathroom renovation is the perfect chance to add radiant floor heating to the room of your home that needs it most. While you’re adding luxurious heat to the floor, consider heated towel racks and toilet seats to make your bathroom the spa-like getaway you’ve always wanted.

Textured Tiles

If you’re bored with smooth, white tiles, rest assured that 2020 is the year for color and texture. Just remember that material selection and placement are essential to ensure low maintenance. Consider raised triangular backsplash tiles to catch the light in striking ways or river stone tiles on the shower floor to gently massage the soles of your feet.

Natural Elements

In an age of high-tech gadgetry, bathrooms are going back to nature. It’s logical to incorporate the outdoors into a room meant for relaxation and rejuvenation. There are many ways to include natural elements in bathrooms, from setting a small plant on the countertop to adding wallpaper or shower curtains with leaf motifs to simply using green bath towels and rugs.

More Attention to Lighting

Having good bathroom lighting is essential when getting ready for the day. This year, bathroom designs abandon ordinary vanity lights in favor of more unique light fixtures. Sconces flanking the mirror, cove lighting along the ceiling, back-lit mirrors, and even chandeliers are all showing up in bathrooms this year. When possible, windows and skylights introduce much-needed natural light as well.

Freestanding Tubs

If there’s room in your bathroom, it’s trendy to incorporate a freestanding tub. The available options vary widely, from classic clawfoot or copper tubs to modern designs with chic, unexpected shapes. Just be aware that significant plumbing changes are required to accommodate this bathroom upgrade.

Matte Finishes

This trend has been gaining momentum in recent years, replacing polished chrome with satin nickel and antique brass. Choose a single finish across every faucet, showerhead, light fixture, towel rack, and shower curtain rod. The demand for matte doesn’t end there—matte countertops, sinks, tiles, and more are showing up in bathrooms this year.

Water-Efficient Fixtures

Efficiency isn’t a new trend. Whether you’re driven by the promise of less waste or lower water bills, consider installing water-efficient faucets, showerheads, and toilets in your bathroom in 2020. These fixtures are available in beautiful, modern designs, many with luxurious, spa-like features for you to enjoy.

Built-In Storage

If you have limited space, built-in storage can be a lifesaver. Floor-to-ceiling shelves, cabinets, or wall niches ensure everything has a home, clearing the clutter off the bathroom countertop once and for all.
