Bathroom Trends for 2020 - Part 2 - 16/01/2020

There are so many innovative and clever trends that are set to hit our bathrooms this year, so much so, we simply couldn’t fit it all in one blog. So, here is part two of what to look out for this year in order to keep your bathroom on-trend and Instagram worthy!

Dark colours

Dark colours in any room can be a scary thought let alone when considering this in a bathroom but, fear not. A darker colour choice can add depth and create character, ultimately making your bathroom stand out. Now, we don’t mean go crazy and paint everything black but, adding small pops of dark colours can draw attention to the features that you love whilst subtly disguising parts that you aren’t a huge fan of. Creating drama, darker colours such as hacienda black, mineral blue and gloss grey contrast beautifully with crisp white ceramics, leaving you with a bathroom that is unique and stylish.

Exposed plumbing

Exposed plumbing is becoming an increasingly popular trend with more and more designers bending the rules about what a ‘typical’ bathroom should look like. Experimenting with different ways to create the wow factor, exposed plumbing is a great way to add practical decoration and an air of coolness to your bathroom. Exposed shower valves look great when aiming for an industrial look and when coordinated with a contemporary wetroom or traditional shower, create a bathroom to be envious of. Exposed plumbing is not only a great was to modernise your bathroom but, it also has additional benefits. Quicker installation and easier access for any repairs means that your bathroom installation and maintenance can be carefree.


Opting for a wetroom can add an air of luxury to your home. Giving flexibility when it comes to layout and design, you can be as creative as you wish when deciding to have a wetroom. Start by creating a basis for your new bathroom by deciding your wall tiles, from there you can begin developing your sophisticated wetroom. With a choice of chrome, black and framed wetroom screens available along with white and slate grey wetroom trays, you can balance beauty and practicality to have a wetroom that offers more style and space.

Free the floor and put everything up

Wall hung features are a great way to make the most of your bathroom. If you are tight for space and often find your bathroom cluttered, a great option is a wall hung vanity unit. Cleverly creating the illusion of space without compromising on storage, opting for wall hung features are perfect for small areas. Making your bathroom easier to clean by creating more floor space, wall hung ceramics help you utilise your space and make the most out of your bathroom.
