In 2019, “wellness” continues to be a buzz word in home design, and there’s no room in the house that’s more synonymous with it than the bathroom. It’s where our morning routine begins and where we take refuge to wind down at the end of a long day.
From high-tech pampering to visually-popping design trends, here are a few reasons to get excited about the bathroom this year.
Float through the year
We all know the feeling of total weightlessness that comes when floating on your back in open water. If you ever wanted to bottle up that sensation and bring it home, well, good news: floating tubs have arrived. Trends such as zero-gravity bathtubs are going to be a game changer in the bathroom experience that we can all get on board with.
Show your pipes
When it comes to design, exposed pipes are having a moment. It lends a bold look that can go well with almost any type of finish. For a vintage aesthetic, brass and gold plumbing are going to be seen more, while the industrial chic look remains popular with cast iron and pewter fittings.
For those who consider the bathroom a place to rejuvenate, the experience will get even better with the latest trends. More shower systems will incorporate ambient chromotherapy (colored lighting) and built-in Bluetooth speakers. With these features, your friends might get bathroom envy.
Make a statement
Bathrooms today are getting bolder, especially powder rooms, with eye-popping patterns, like animal print wallpaper and dramatic mirrors. Creating unique visual appeal is part of making your bathroom feel more personal.
It’s not just about infrared sink sensors anymore. From mirrors with a built-in voice assistant that will check your calendar to state-of-the-art toilets that self-clean and deodorize, the bathroom has finally been brought into the 21st century.
