What Design Trends Are Being Seen in 2020

We've entered the last quarter of 2020 and want to share the design trends that stood out during the first three quarters of the year.

Split finishes are becoming very popular in everything from bathroom and kitchen plumbing fixtures and appliances to door and cabinet hardware. We've heard ear-to-ear smiles when we present combination black and gold finishes to our clients over the phone. One of our most popular and favorite product we sell that has a combination black and gold finishes is the Brizo Litze 64053LF-BLGL SmartTouch Pull-Down Faucet with Square Spout and Knurled Handle Matte Black/Luxe Gold. Specifying gold pulls on a matte black vanity creates a dramatic and refined focal point in any bath. We also have had an extremely positive reception pairing black and silver tones in all design motifs – traditional, transitional, and contemporary.

Mixed materials are another trend in new baths and kitchens. Combining metal, stone, wood, and glass are on point for many homeowners and builders. Imagine a double vanity that features an engineered stone top contrasted with two-tone wood paneling and a matte black sink with gold-finished faucet. Simply gorgeous. Similar to mixing materials is specifying contrasting colors.

Functional furniture is also making a new home in baths. Homeowners respond warmly to suggestions for desk space, separate storage cabinetry, open shelving, and other solutions that are more reminiscent of furniture found in other places in the home than traditional bath cabinetry.

White cabinets continue to rank as the number one preference. However, we see white trending in other materials and fixtures beyond cabinetry. White finished appliances, split chrome, and white faucetry and split white toned lighting make for a dramatic statement in any bath or kitchen. Other trending colors for finishes in baths and kitchens include champagne, bronze, gray, gold, and black.

Smart fixtures also continue to gain in popularity. Many homeowners like having the ability to preheat their ovens or start their steam showers from a smartphone app. Smart technology helps make homeowners' lives easier and more enjoyable, and can also enable homeowners to react to potential maintenance and malfunction issues immediately. For example, a smartphone alert can notify a homeowner that a valve is leaking.

Your new bath has to look out-of-this-world and serve multiple purposes and functions, spanning from the space where you prepare for the day to a private refuge to wash away the stresses of the day and enhance your health and wellbeing. A well-appointed bath combines stylish aesthetics with durable and functional finishes and materials.
