Get ready to relax… One of the biggest upcoming 2020 bathroom trends is the freestanding bathtub. Not only are freestanding tubs the perfect place to unwind after a long day, but they also add a sculptural element that brings grandeur to any bathroom design. Another benefit of the freestanding tub is flexibility—instead of positioning it against a wall like a traditional tub, it can be strategically placed anywhere in the bathroom layout. If you’re brave, you can even put it right in the center! With this new bathroom trend, 2020 will be full of calm and tranquility.

Biophilic Decor

You may be wondering, what exactly does biophilic mean? Essentially, it’s the human tendency to interact or be closely associated with nature. Interior designers are gravitating toward biophilic bathroom designs that incorporate some form of greenery—whether it’s a living moss wall, views of nature, or even decor elements in the color green. The nature-centered design has been proven to positively affect the human brain, leading to reduced stress levels, improved cognitive function, and enhanced mood and creativity. With those benefits, who wouldn’t want to add some greenery to their bathroom?

White Shaker Vanities

In 2020, the classic white shaker vanity will be ever-popular as homeowners seek beautiful (yet functional) cabinets that will stand the test of time. Not only are white shaker cabinets bright and appealing, but they also mesh well with all kinds of bathroom decor. From farmhouse to modern to eclectic, white shaker cabinets are the perfect choice for any design type. Homeowners and interior designers alike love the reassurance that as design trends come and go, the white shaker style will remain a timeless cabinet choice for decades to come.

Artistic Framed Mirrors

Framed vanity mirrors in interesting shapes, colors, and sizes are popping up all over the 2020 bathroom design scene. Easily exchangeable, vanity mirrors are a small investment with a huge impact. Homeowners are ditching their boring wall mirrors for unique styles that better embody their personalities. Case in point, these oval mirrors with matte black frames are the perfect touch in this modern black and white bathroom. They add just enough artistic flair to create interest without overwhelming the space. Remember—when browsing for mirrors, big box stores aren’t your only option! Check out your local thrift store for antique mirrors to add a vintage look to your space. Or, create a DIY mirror with a frame of your choosing and a plain mirror from your local craft shop.

Incorporating Feng Shui

In 2020, homeowners are getting serious about adding feng shui to their bathroom designs. Feng shui refers to the notion that man should live in harmony with his surroundings. In many cases, this means using colors, materials, and patterns to evoke certain feelings. To illustrate, this unique modern bathroom utilizes a blue tile accent wall and matching floor. Blue represents youth, and new beginnings and inspires confidence. Bare in mind that you don’t have to dish out a fortune to bring good energy to your bathroom space. Simple additions like colorful shower curtains, wall decor, or rugs can add a splash of calming color to your bathroom for less!

Sculptural Lighting

This year, popular bathroom lighting trends will see a shift toward unique, sculptural pendant lights in a variety of colors and materials. Pendant lights offer a beautiful way to add an artistic touch to an otherwise plain bathroom design. Whether it's grandiose and elegant or small and minimalist, a well-chosen pendant light can add lots of character to any bathroom. This star-shaped light brings a creative flair to a modern bathroom space. We love how well it matches the black frame on the vanity mirror. The options are truly endless when it comes to pendant lighting!

The Return Of Patterned Wallpaper

Patterned wallpaper faded from style when stone and tile backsplashes hit the market, but it is now making a return to the 2020 bathroom design scene. You can opt to cover the entire bathroom in wallpaper, or just stick to covering one wall. Be sure to choose a wallpaper that is splashproof and designed for high humidity areas of the home. Since there are thousands of different colors and patterns on the market, we recommend looking at the rest of your bathroom design before making a choice. What colors are already used in your bathroom? Would they mesh well with a crazy, high-energy design, or should you opt for a more subdued pattern? Installing a fun wallpaper to your bathroom design is a great way to add some playful character to your bathroom and spice up the space.

Modern Textures

In 2020, homeowners are ditching the boring wall paint in their bathrooms and adding depth with texture. Some are going bold with elegant stone walls, like the bathroom pictured. A less pricey option is hand-applied drywall texture, which can be achieved on a budget with a special brush and knife. Regardless of the method chosen, adding a textural element to bathroom walls will be a new bathroom design hit for 2020.
