10 Bathroom Trends that Are Going Out of Style
It’s no secret that interior design trends come and go. West Coast minimalism is on its way out, replaced by modern glam styles. And industrial kitchens are swiftly being replaced by clean and modern finishes. Bathroom remodeling trends are no different in Ashburn, VA.
From all-white features to double sinks, here are some of the most common bathroom trends that are on their way out of style in 2020.
- Floating sinks. Floating sinks are a part of the modern minimalist trend, but they’re not very practical. With a floating sink, you lose valuable cabinet space that helps to keep your bathroom organized and functional. While the entire concept of minimalist design is to own the bare minimum of what you need, you still need a place to store the items you do have.
- All-white bathrooms. All-white bathrooms became a popular bathroom design trend to counteract with the colorful bathrooms of the 1970s that had been around for nearly 50 years. But after years of so much white, homeowners are beginning to get bored with the color. The result is the latest trend in bold bathroom tiles, typically in emerald green and navy blue. The result is a design that’s neutral enough for the modern bathroom, but still adds a pop of color for interest.
- Chevron patterns. If you haven’t used the chevron pattern in your own home, chances are you’ve seen it here and there throughout HGTV magazine over the last few years. Chevron flooring was a popular alternative to standard tile and gave some extra pizzazz to the room, but now the design is quickly becoming outdated.
- Forgoing the bathtub. Some homeowners choose to do without their bathtub during their bathroom renovation, choosing instead to go for a large, luxury shower. But if you plan to eventually sell your home, getting rid of your bathtub altogether may not be such a good idea. As long as there are people who like to soak in the tub, and families with children, there will always be a need for bathtubs.
- Traditional subway tiles. Subway tiles are still popular right now with many renters and homebuyers requesting them while house hunting. But with new trends involving different subway tile patterns and new tile styles, this popular design may soon be seeing its way out.
- Copper materials. Rose and copper finishes temporarily surged in bathroom remodeling, but have since been on the decline beginning in 2018. Now, copper finishes are almost entirely outdated, especially on large surfaces. Silver and gold finishes are the latest.
- Double sinks. Double sinks were designed to help make getting ready in the morning that much easier. After all, you no longer have to share a sink with your partner. But double sinks also create new problems, which is that they increase the risk of cluttered countertops.
- Vessel sinks. While vessel sinks are an elegant-looking feature to add during your bathroom remodeling, they’re not very practical. Water and dirt can get easily stuck between the countertop and vessel sink, adding to the books and crannies you’ll need to clean to keep your bathroom fresh. What’s more, because the bowl of the sink is exposed rather than held in by the countertop, vessel sinks may not be as durable.
- Freestanding bathtubs. The freestanding bathtub is a current bathroom remodeling trend that may soon be going out of style. Like vessel sinks, freestanding bathtubs create more areas in your bathroom to clean because of the water and dirt that can get stuck between the floor and the bottom of the tub. Freestanding bathtubs are also very heavy and may require a reinforced floor.
- Doorless showers. A doorless shower may increase the amount of floor space in your bathroom, but it also creates a problem with humidity. Shower doors keep warmth and humidity inside the shower, which helps to prevent mildew from building in the rest of your bathroom. Doorless showers are also more likely to let in cold drafts while your washing, which isn’t comfortable.
