Going Green the Whole Way

Yes, blue and its shades are popular as ever in 2020, but in the world of bathrooms now is the time to try out shades of green instead. If you have a spacious bathroom that is visually connected with the outdoors or is filled with indoor plants, then you are blessed with a natural green tinge in here! Even otherwise walls in green work well with a variety of styles ranging from farmhouse and rustic to contemporary and Scandinavian. Start out small before you commit to green in the bathroom this winter.

Understated Spa-Inspired Look

The spa-inspired modern bathroom has been a sought-after idea for a while now. But 2020 sees this constantly popular trend take a more comfy turn as the spa-styled look is coupled with an understated and cozy ambiance. Tone down on polished surfaces while keeping the predominantly white look intact. Add to it woodsy elegance or even a bit of tiled beauty along with some indoor plants to achieve a balance between relaxed elegance and urban sophistication.

Warmer Hues Instead of White

Yes, the white and wood color palette is still a favorite among homeowners, but try out colors other than white if possible. Replace white walls with those painted mellow yellow, beige or cream for a visually ‘rich’ bathroom. You can still use white sporadically in here and the bathroom would instantly seem a whole lot more calming and unique.
