A new year is a great time to finally double down and redesign your home as you’ve planned for a while. When such projects are done, bathrooms usually get the least attention since it seems they are easy to do and won’t require that much investing.

This rarely turns out to be the case. Bathroom design is often rather complicated since there are a lot of restraints created by the lack of space and the overall functionality of the room. At the same time, it needs to convey a sense of style and be a part of your overall theme for the home.

Add color

Add color

For a while now, bathrooms have been monochromatic or had only two colors which complement one another. It’s time to change that and go bold with the color choice for the bathrooms. Many designers are deciding on bright green and bright pink as their colors for the bathroom of 2019.

This color setup usually works well with vintage pieces such as sinks and faucets. It gives the whole bathroom a quirky look, but make sure you’re not going overboard, since it’s still a room you need to be comfortable in.

Furniture

Bathroom furniture has two main purposes. It should be comfortable and usable, but it should also add a bit of style to your bathroom and be a piece that creates interest. In 2019, most bathroom furniture will try to mimic the Victorian style.

As is the case with any other trend, this one too is just temporary, but if it’s chosen to fit the rest of the design, it can last you for years. Another great thing about this trend is the fact that it allows you to go to yard sales and thrift shops and find pretty serviceable pieces of furniture there.

Standalone tubs

Standalone tubs

A standalone tub is a striking piece and it usually becomes the center of the bathroom in terms of design, even if it’s not a center of the room. These tubs require a major remodeling of most bathrooms since you’ll need to do some pipe relining in order to make the tub seamlessly fit into the room.

These tubs don’t need to have a vintage look around them as it sometimes seems. Depending on how you design the rest of your bathroom, a standalone tube can look rather modern and warm as well.

Minimalism

Minimalism

Minimalism has been a trend in home design for years now and it’s going to remain rather popular in the years to come. An important thing to remember about minimalistic style is the fact that it’s not just about the design, it also greatly influences how a room will be used.

Minimalist bathrooms are usually white and choosing the right lighting for these is of crucial importance. In order to add some variety to minimalistic bathrooms, you should put up a few striking details here and there. These could be something as simple as brass faucets.

Woodworking

Woodworking

For the longest time, woodworking wasn’t really that used for bathroom design since the humidity and the temperature in a bathroom make that too complicated. Now, if you have a proper ventilation system and use the right wood, it can be done and it adds a warmth and texture to your bathroom.

You can even try installing hardwood floors into your bathroom. It will make the space look more compact and homey. It looks best if the whole bathroom is in earth tones and has a vintage look.

Designing a bathroom can take much more time and thought than you’ve planned. In 2019, there will be a lot of experimentation in this area and you should feel free to mix and match different styles.
