The bathroom is one of the most used places in the home, but this doesn’t mean that it has to be all about functionality.
It’s a place where you’re going to spend time, so just like the rest of your house, it should be somewhere that you enjoy being, and that matches your style.
If you’re thinking of a new bathroom, here are some of our favourite trends for bathrooms in 2019 for inspiration.
Good storage is a must have for any bathroom, and a storage ledge, or niche, is a great way to integrate storage into your bathroom without compromising on style. Positioning one at body height means no more cluttering up the shower floor and makes it easy to access your shampoos and shower gels without having to bend down.
Exposed plumbing is set to be big in 2019, however there’s a different between an unfinished bathroom and statement exposed plumbing.
Copper is a popular choice for piping but can tarnish easily, and will require a lot of cleaning (unless of course you want the tarnished look). Other options to consider are chrome, rose gold and gold effect piping.
Something to consider when going for this look is how the pipe will be attached to a tiled wall or floor. Often pipes will have to be clipped to tiled walls so your plumber will need to have a drill bit that will avoid cracking the tile when drilling through.

Spa Like Design
Lets face it, life is stressful, so it’s important to have somewhere at home where you can relax and unwind. A big bathroom trend for 2019 is to create a spa experience at home.
Natural textures and muted colours create a calm and relaxing environment. Those lucky enough to have the space, can add luxury with a free standing bath, while incorporating a built in shower seat means that you can sit back and relax – even while in the shower.
Including a heated towel-rail will not only give you somewhere stylish to store your towels, but it also means that you can also look forward to soft fluffy towels when you’re done.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all? While advanced mirrors might not answer you back, they can do a lot more than a regular mirror. Bluetooth connectivity means that you can play your favourite songs or catch up on podcasts. (Many also have charging sockets so there’s no need to worry about your phone battery running down.
Some advanced mirrors also allow you to change the temperatre of the lighting. Having a choice of light temperatures will help you to avoid makeup mistakes that can happen with harsh lighting.
