Top Bathroom Remodeling Trends in 2020

When it comes to home improvement, kitchens and bathroom remodeling are at the top of the list. Home improvement is a multi-billion dollar industry as people are spending more to improve their homes. If you are thinking about a bathroom remodel, there are some popular Bathroom Remodeling Trends to consider over the next year.

Top Bathroom Remodeling Trends in 2020

Here are some of the top bathroom remodeling trends for 2020.

Biophilic Designs

Research shows that people are more efficient, happier, and calmer when they are exposed to nature. Throughout all of 2019, sustainability and eco-friendly have been the buzzwords. These buzzwords seeped into remodeling, and more homeowners are choosing greener materials for their remodeling projects. Biophilic design refers to playing into your affinity of nature. Recycled materials, reclaimed wood, water-saving techniques, and efficient lighting are all part of these types of bathroom designs. Additionally, adding plants, natural light, and other greenery in the bathroom are all trends that are not going away any time soon.

Space Saving Designs

As more and more people are living in urban areas, space is now a luxury. For those who have a smaller bathroom space, some great design ideas are becoming quite popular. Console vanities, open showers, and compact furniture are all great ways to utilize your bathroom space no matter what the size might be.


When most people think about wood, they do not feel that it has a place in the bathroom. After all, damp spaces and timber do not go together. However, there is a new trend for 2020, where wood is being utilized as a luxury element for bathroom designs. From wooden vanities to walls lined with wooden panels, bathrooms that use these wood elements tend to feel more warm, welcoming, and open. Ceramics being replaced with wood are a fun feature that can make this space unique. Not only that but using reclaimed wood is a great way to create a “green” space. It is important to remember that the wood is treated to avoid water damage.

Classic White

Trends will come and go, but classic white bathrooms have always been a popular choice. If you want to play it safe with your bathroom remodel, choosing classic white is the best option. White bathrooms are still going to be trendy, no matter what else might be going on in the design world. What is new with the classic white bathroom trend is the addition of a minimalist approach in combination with marble. Using industrial style fixtures will provide a more raw feel, giving a classic look a bit of boldness.

Standalone Tubs

Standalone tubs were once for large bathrooms only. However, this design element has been gaining traction and is expected to be a big trend in the coming year. Standalone tubs can provide a statement by themselves, but they also work well with other design elements. For example, they are great for biophilic bathrooms. Moreover, these tubs are not limited to being white. There are many shapes and colors of standalone tubs now available. You can make these tubs the focus of the room when you place it in the center of your space. The only limits are your imagination.


Everyone loves the spa. After all, resorts are the ultimate in relaxation. Many people are recreating this atmosphere in their homes. Some of the design elements for a spa-like bathroom include wood, such as bamboo, and other relaxing features. You can bring in mood lighting, storage spaces to make the room feel less cluttered, and even your favorite scented candles. Think about everything that you enjoy about going to the spa and try to incorporate that relaxing atmosphere into your bathroom remodeling design.

Bright Colors

Bright bathrooms are another trend that you will see more of in 2020. Using fun colors like oranges, yellows, and bright blues is becoming more popular. In addition to using bright colors, the type of lighting that you choose for your bathroom can make a difference in the space as well. There are fun LED strips, pendant lights, and other fun lighting fixtures that can be used to make your bathroom a lot brighter. If you have a window in your bathroom, allowing the natural light to shine in is lovely and a great way to create a more natural feeling space.
