6 Bathroom Trends You Need to Follow in 2019

6 Bathroom Trends You Need to Follow in 2019

There is no denying that bathrooms are one of the most practical rooms in any home. However, it is their practicality that often limits Perth homeowners from being open-minded and adventurous with their bathroom’s design. But things need not be this way – you can get creative with your bathroom design while also ensuring that your space performs all functional duties as required.

If you’re looking to renovate your bathroom and in desperate need of some style inspiration, the best way to go about it is by looking at what’s currently trending. As the head of purchasing at Ross’s Discount Home Centre, I am often on the lookout for top home design trends, so today, I’ll share with you some of the world’s top designers’ predictions for bathroom trends in 2019.

These bathroom trends are sure to provide you with a fountain of inspiration, and best of all, they are easy to adopt without you having to undertake a major bathroom renovation. So, go ahead, and adopt any of these trends to transform your space into something modern and stylish without sacrificing practicality.

1. Black / Industrial Bathrooms

Over the past few years, the industrial look has taken the interior design world by storm. It isn’t uncommon to see this look being used in restaurants, kitchens and even bathrooms these days. While this look has been around for a while now, designers and decorators feel that it will continue to be a hot trend in 2019.

One of the key elements of the industrial look is using metallic finishes such as chrome, copper, gold, and silver. However, metallic finishes have been overused in the years past. The industrial look of 2019 will rely more on darker finishes. Top designers and decorators have turned towards matte black tapware, and this is one finish that will be a big part of the industrial look in 2019.

To adopt the industrial look in your bathroom, choose satin black bathroom fixtures and tapware to make your space look trendy. And, for this, you needn’t look any further than us. You’ll find a full range of satin black bathroom fixtures here at Ross’s Discount Home Centre.

Take a look at our Cube Basin Mixer, our Cube Shower Head, Cube Shower Mixer, Square Swivel Bath Spout and Square Hi-Rise Shower Arm. Use any or all of these satin black fixtures to create a contemporary industrial look in your bathroom.

2. Grey Bathrooms

Grey bathrooms have been steadily increasing in popularity, and this trend is expected to blow up come 2019.  The reason why grey bathrooms are so appealing is that grey offers great versatility. Grey belongs to a neutral palette and can be paired with almost every other colour. Thanks to this, grey bathrooms can be designed to reflect a traditional or modern look.

There are several ways to go about designing a grey bathroom. While you can create a seamless grey look on your floors and walls with tiles, you can also spice things up by contrasting grey with other neutral colours.

One of the easiest ways to create a grey bathroom is by including a grey feature wall and a grey vanity unit. Pairing a feature wall or a grey vanity with neutral-coloured fittings and accessories will instantly transform your bathroom into something modern and trendy without you having to do too much remodelling.

If you’re looking to adopt this look, you’ll find everything that you need for your bathrooms in Perth at Ross’s Discount Home Centre. For instance, using our Matang Zinc wall tile with our Dijon Vanity Unit will allow you to create the grey bathroom of your dreams instantly.

3. Dark Interiors

One trend that I have seen pop up out of nowhere with bathrooms in Perth is the use of dark interiors. Dark-coloured tiles and vanities give a bathroom a unique and classy look and decorators and designers love this trend!

However, you must be careful if you want to pull off this trend yourself. Dark interiors are not always the best choice for compact bathrooms because they can make a space appear even smaller. They are an excellent choice for large-sized bathrooms, though. One way to use dark interiors in smaller bathrooms is by using dark shades sparingly with other colours. For example, contrasting a dark feature wall with a glossy white vanity unit is something that works wonderfully well in small bathrooms.

You’ll find everything that you need to pull off this trend in our range. For a compact bathroom, use our Matang Goanna wall tile to create a feature wall and contrast it with our Joanne Ensuite Vanity. And, if space is not a concern, you can adopt a seamless look by using dark floor tiles as well.

4. Patterned Tiles

Patterned Tiles

Using patterned tiles is easily one of the biggest tile trends I’m seeing with bathrooms in bathrooms these days. If you aren’t aware of them, patterned tiles are eclectic tile designs that look incredibly stylish and come in various designs. They are also sometimes referred to from their place of origin as Victorian tiles, Spanish tiles, Moroccan tiles etc.

Due to the growing popularity of these tiles, you’ll find a variety of patterned tiles for your bathroom in Perth with ease. Regardless of whether you’re trying to find tiles for a particular theme or you are looking to create something different and quirky, you’re sure to find a suitably patterned tile.

For the biggest selection of patterned tiles in Perth, you needn’t look any further than us here at Ross’s Discount Home Centre. Check out our vast selection of tiles, and you’ll soon find something to your liking.

As an alternative to using patterned tiles on your bathroom walls, you can also consider using patterned tiles on your floors and pair them with neutral wall tiles. This will allow you to create a unique statement floor which is sure to give your space the ‘wow’ factor. Many of our feature tiles at Ross’s Discount Home Centre can also be used as floor tiles, so you’ll easily be able to pull off this look.

5. Wall-Hung Vanities

Wall-Hung Vanities

Given that the average Perth homeowner’s bathroom is on the smaller side, space saving is a big consideration with bathroom designs. This has given rise to the use of wall-hung vanities in smaller bathrooms. While wall-hung vanities look stylish and offer storage space, they don’t consume any floor space. Due to this, the use of wall-hung vanities has exploded in the recent past.

Today, wall-hung vanities are available in a range of styles, designs and finish options for you to choose. From vanities in glossy white finishes to matte black vanities and wood-look vanities, wall-hung vanities come in almost every style imaginable.

If you’d like to upgrade to a wall-hung vanity, consider our selection here at Ross’s Discount Home Centre. From wood-look vanities to stylish glossy and matte finish vanities, you’ll find just what you’re looking for with us. Whether you’re looking to create a natural look, a contemporary look or a classic look in your bathroom, you’ll find the perfect wall-hung vanity at our store.

6. Rimless Toilets

Rimless Toilet Suites

Fittings and fixtures play a big part in bathroom design, and if there’s one fixture that creates a big difference, it is the toilet suite. Toilet suites are available in a plethora of styles and designs for you to choose from. Rimless toilet suites are fast growing into one of the hottest trends lately.

Rimless toilets are still relatively new in the market, and few people know about them. Unlike standard toilets, rimless toilets don’t contain an enclosed rim at the top of the toilet suite. Instead, there is an open space due to which flush water is not enclosed. This makes rimless toilets much more hygienic than standard toilets, and also easier to clean.

If you’d like to follow this trend in your bathroom, choose the Peak Rimless Toilet Suite available at Ross’s Discount Home Centre in Perth. It is a stylish and revolutionary toilet suite that offers the best of aesthetics and functionality. It offers everything you need to make your bathroom more practical while also keeping things stylish and trendy.
