As we usher in a new year, let’s take a look ahead to see what styles will rise to the top of bathroom design. Finishes are always fun place to start: while polished chrome and brushed nickel continue to rain supreme, rose gold, warm brass and champagne colors are adding warmth and a luxe look in faucets, fixtures and mirror frames.

In addition, there is a stylish newcomer to note: Matte Black. This faucet finish has been added to the lineup of every major faucet brand from Kohler to Moen. It instantly adds a modern edge to the bath.

As seen in the matte black and chrome faucet, mixing metals and finishes is not only okay, but on-trend as homeowners add interest and personality to their bath. Visual interest is also being incorporated through the use of textured and patterned tile on accent walls and flooring.
There is also a movement away from cool colors toward warmer cabinetry and walls that embrace earthier tones – or a mix of light walls with a deeper accent wall, as well as statement cabinetry in warm greys, blues and greens.

The farmhouse design style continues to be omnipresent in 2019, as reclaimed materials work to bring an authentic quality into the bath. Repurposed dressers or side tables easily become vanities, and existing mirrors are given new life with the addition of a frame. Incorporating these materials brings texture and a friendly feel to the bath.

While it may be chilly outside, there’s a definite warming trend in today’s homes. Embrace the glow in finishes and fixtures in 2019.
