The bathroom trends predicted to take over in 2020

Are you renovating or building a new bathroom?

The bathroom is one of the busiest rooms in the house, but it’s also the most neglected in terms of style and design. Many people opt for a practical and functional layout of simple shower frames, white tiles and a vanity cabinet with storage space. But with a few easy tweaks, any bathroom can go from blah to brilliant, and make those few precious minutes of peace in the morning a little more luxurious. So, whether you’re planning a renovation, a facelift or building a brand new bathroom – these are the trends to watch out for in 2020.

Fancy tapware & hardware

Updating your taps and handles is an inexpensive way to update a bathroom without altering structural aspects of the room. Look for statement taps, handles, shower heads and hooks in finishes such as gold and copper metallics and matte black.


Step away from the mundane white, grey and beige bathroom schemes, and consider using colours such as pink, greens, blues and black to really make a statement.

Interesting tiles

Think outside the box when it comes to tiles and try clashing tiles in different sizes and patterns together to achieve a unique look that won’t age.

Unique vanities

For a small bathroom that doesn’t fit a standalone bath, the vanity is usually the centre piece of the room. With that in mind, look for a vanity option that not only looks amazing and has character, but is practical enough to provide ample bench space and storage.

Feature lighting

Beautiful lighting isn’t just for living areas and bedrooms. Pick a beautiful pendant light or statement wall-mounted task lighting options that are design-led. You’ll elevate the style of the whole room.
