The 2020 Bathroom

Real Estate For Sale

For a while there, it seemed as if bathroom decor was headed toward contemporary for good, but as we hit 2020 hard, we are now seeing an intersection of those contemporary modern lines and white colors, with that of retro vintage elements.

Revamping your bathroom is a laborious and expensive undertaking and the real trick is making sure you don’t spend your blood, sweat, tears and cash on something that will soon be outdated. Good thing a retro/vintage look can never be truly outdated because that’s the whole point. 

A few interior designers chimed in with their thoughts: 

Kicking off with that of sustainable bathrooms - because sustainability has become a growing trend in the design industry. More and more companies are developing eco-friendly materials and furniture. Take The Mendocino tub, by Native Trails. “We know that sustainability shouldn’t compromise style,” says Naomi Neilson, Founder and CEO of Native Trails. “Our latest artisan-made product release, a gorgeous freestanding bathtub, is a great example of that.”

What is the Mendocino tub exactly? This handmade NativeStone is an eco-friendly blend of jute fiver and cement. Look-wise, it’s incredibly earthy, rustic and goes great in any room. 

Another fun project is that of converting your bathroom into its very own spa. “The most common trend we’ve seen in bathroom design for 2020 is towards creating a spa-like experience with a strong emphasis on wellness and relaxation,” says Naomi.

A good way to make the bathroom feel all the more immersive as a spa is to add heated floors, steam showers, aromatherapy with HVAC scenting and heated or cooled vanity drawers for towels or skincare, as well as built-in speakers. 

As for the vintage styles, Peter Bowles, Founder and Managing Director of Original BTC had a few words. “In order to achieve this, bathroom design is taking a nostalgic turn, recalling vintage styles that echo the flair and functionality of the 1930s and 1960s,” he says.

“This is certainly true for lighting, as well as other areas, such as bath furniture and tile work. Our Art Deco-inspired Pillar Offset Wall Light is an excellent example of this, available in a weathered brass finish with fluted glass for added vintage glamour."

The time is now to introduce something new into your bathroom. Especially considering this is a place meant for your privacy and relaxation. So whether it’s turning it into a spa, or a novelty of the past, it’s worth the time and cost.
