Bathroom Trends for 2019

2019 bathroom trendsModern bathrooms are evolving toward greater comfort, space, and functionality, all while integrating fresh aesthetic appeal. When we are part of a bathroom remodel, it’s always exciting to see how much more modern and beautiful the finished product is especially when we upgrade the shower doors to heavy glass (frameless) doors. If you are remodeling your bathroom this year, consider updating to heavy glass and keep these trends in mind as well.

Open Concept Plans

As with houses in general, newer bathrooms are often designed for open, breathable space. Open concept designs can make even tiny bathrooms feel roomier. Gone are the surplus cupboards full of junk. Modern bathrooms exhibit efficient, practical amounts of cupboard space with more open shelving that can be installed higher on the walls or tucked in corners. Heavy glass shower doors are a popular choice for open concept bathrooms due to their ability to let light flow throughout the room and into the shower space. With no frames blocking the view, the eye perceives the room as larger and more spacious.

Neutral Tones with a Pop

Neutral tones add a relaxing and timeless feel to any design. Current styles lean toward more natural stone and wood surfaces with matte textured metal fixtures and paint. However, complementing these neutral tones are accents of color that can be seen along a single wall, a backsplash, or mingled with the tile. Small murals, a section of wallpaper, potted plants or a framed painting can add a nice focal point without making the room look too busy.

Water Space

A popular modern design called a ‘water space’ is a section of the bathroom dedicated to a bathtub and an open shower with a drain in the floor. This area of the bathroom is typically walled off with heavy glass shower doors. Conforming to open concept design, glass surpasses a shower curtain by effectively containing splashing water without reducing the visible size of the bathroom or interrupting the flow of light.
