2019 Bathroom Update Ideas That Won't Go Out of Fashion

2019 bathroom update ideas

Summer is a great time to get creative with your home updates. So in this post, we’re putting bathrooms under the spotlight to offer you all of the inspiration you need to create an on-trend look in your bathroom.

Discussing some of the hottest trends in 2019, the bathroom experts at Jaquar are exploring a number of ways that functional bathrooms can be transformed into luxurious, sumptuous spaces that are bang on-trend for this season and beyond.

From exposed plumbing to statement walls, you’ll find plenty of inspiration to get your creative juices flowing, while adding value to your property in the process...

Stick to a Neutral Palette

Something which works for years to come will always be on-trend. To keep your bathroom feeling modern, stick to a monochromatic element throughout the whole space. Using only one colour or material, such as all green or all marble tile, is a great way to achieve this look.

If tiles aren’t quite to your taste, sticking to a neutral palette such as crisp white, soft cream or cloudy grey will create a timeless, clean and calm feel in your bathroom.

As trends change, why not update your bathroom with new accessories which will brighten the room?

Using this technique, your bathroom won’t require a complete redesign for some time - and if you get bored of the accessories, they’re easy to replace without a complete renovation.

Sticking to neutral colours could give great flexibility to your bathroom design, which will make it last for years.

Inject the Industrial Look

Exposed pipe shower systems offer a simple yet powerful way to bring a little personality into bathrooms which are notoriously difficult to spice up, aside from the obvious aesthetic touches such as buying a new shower curtain.

Exposed plumbing can create a metallic, industrial-look aesthetic - and whether you prefer black or chrome, you can incorporate exposed plumbing into any bathroom design.

Better yet, you can also customise your finish to achieve either a contemporary or traditional look - for a retro twist, for example, try a copper finish.

The industrial look can be paired with numerous bathroom design themes, too - it doesn’t have to be overwhelming, and can be used to create a chic look on a lower budget.

Pair this theme with rounded rectangular vanity mirrors for a stylish, coordinated design we expect to continue to see throughout 2019.

Pewter and gunmetal hardware are also set to dominate in 2019, as these shades aren’t as harsh as pure black, or as tricky to coordinate as brass or gold, but add instant texture and depth to your bathroom.

A slicker alternative to harsh-coloured exposed piping, this is a sophisticated trend taking bathrooms by storm this year.

Make a Statement

Small spaces, such as powder rooms, excel as a canvas for a bold, singular statement. High-contrast, large-scale wallpaper will expand a small space, and infuse it with personality and artistic inspiration.

Oversized floral wall prints and pattern-on-pattern designs are at the height of home design chic in 2019, particularly in bold bright colours - so don’t be afraid to experiment in your powder room just because it’s a small room.

If you’re feeling bold, why not incorporate white and grey marble into your bathroom space on surfaces and walls? A major trend enduring through 2019, marble is classic and timeless - able to easily transition from traditional to modern in terms of aesthetic, and with high-value appeal when it comes to resale.

Man-made materials, such as quartz and porcelain tiles with the appearance of natural stone, are also great alternatives that create a polished aesthetic, while remaining highly durable.

The use of concrete in sink basins, countertops, floors and walls is set to be another big trend in 2019.

Marrying this utilitarian medium with woods, steel, porcelain and resin will help you to achieve a clean and sleek look without having to go over budget. 

Think Texture

In 2019, think of the bathroom as more of a spa-like experience rather than a utilitarian space. Create a seamless transition in your relaxing paradise using invisible plumbing fixtures, incorporating walk-in showers that create a luxurious floor surface - such as large marble slabs that will hide linear drainage lines beneath - for an elegant, contemporary look.

As marble can be sandblasted to ensure a non-slip surface, this could provide a bespoke, functional detail to finish off your bathroom with a luxurious aesthetic.

Whether you’re completely renovating your bathroom, thinking of selling your home, or just looking for some stylish and contemporary update ideas, we hope you’ll be inspired by this post to breathe new life into your bathroom for a timeless yet luxurious feel.
