Let’s together with the site Our site summarize the results of 2018. In this article, let’s see what trends in bathroom furnishing have gained popularity and, as experts say, will remain relevant in 2019. Let’s figure out what most homeowners want to see in their bathroom and toilet.
To begin with, let’s highlight the main trends that designers note:
- Modern baths are increasing in size. When planning their home, the owners are increasingly trying to make the bathroom more functional, containing both a bath and a shower, and two sinks for the convenience of all family members..
- The decoration is dominated by neutral shades close to natural.
- Forms are strict, simple, the emphasis is on functionality and minimalism.
- Spot lighting, LED strips are used, for example, around the mirror by the sink. General lighting is increasingly being abandoned, highlighting individual functional areas with light..
Now let’s touch on plumbing specifically. Of course, not all homeowners can afford “smart” toilets. However, many are willing to pay extra, for example, for a self-cleaning toilet, so as not to waste time cleaning it..
Toilets without a rim are also in trend, because it is underneath that the most dirt accumulates, which is very difficult to clean. In addition, owners in most cases choose plumbing with two drain buttons to save water..
As for the bidet, this is still not a very popular type of plumbing. Even when the size of the room allows, the owners often decide to buy a toilet with a hygienic shower or bidetka.
As for the baths themselves, oval models are gaining popularity, which do not need a screen at all – they are beautiful in themselves. Yes, they take up more space, but they are comfortable and attractive..
By the way, designers have noticed such a trend as baths for two. Why not, many people want to romantically settle in the bathroom with foam together, if the size of the room allows – there are no obstacles.
Hot tubs are in steady but not rapidly growing demand. The exception is baths with the so-called quiet hydromassage, without noticeable vibration and noise.
Also, homeowners began to pay attention to the following innovations:
- Heated water baths.
- Bathtubs with built-in backrest heating, which makes it very pleasant to sit-lie down longer.
- Bathtubs are illuminated, which is very romantic and allows you not to use overhead light.
Yes, so far there are not very many such offers, and the demand is growing slowly. But a similar trend has already appeared, people appreciate the comfort of such bathrooms..
Now let’s deal with the souls. An increasing number of homeowners are opting for tropical rain showers. I wrote in detail about the features of such shower heads, we will not dwell, just noting this as a fairly noticeable trend. Most often, a rain shower is combined with a conventional, removable mixer.
In addition, as is the case with bathrooms, showers designed for two, with two watering cans next to or opposite each other, are gaining popularity. Well, apparently, this trend is associated with an increase in the size of the bathroom in private houses and the desire to provide yourself with maximum comfort, not to wait until the other half gets together in the morning for work. By the way, for the same reason, two adjacent sinks are gaining fashion..
And now more and more souls are not a separate plastic cabin with doors, but a corner in the bathroom, simply tiled. They often do without a pallet, simply by arranging an effective drain and slightly lowering the floor level in this area.
Of the fashion trends that were presented at Cersai-2018, as we can see, many are beginning to spread in our country. In particular, rimless toilets, vertical tile layouts and neutral colors.
