7 stunning contemporary bathroom ideas for 2020

Posted by Nicky Kingston in Inspiration | 4 years ago 4 min read

Have you always wanted a stunning bathroom that is bang on-trend? To help inspire you, we’ve come up with these 7 amazing contemporary bathroom ideas for 2020 and beyond.

Before you begin browsing, what actually is a “contemporary bathroom”? Well, “contemporary” can be defined as “belonging to or occurring in the present”, so in this sense, it is any type of bathroom style which is popular now. Of course, trends and tastes can change quickly (remember those coloured bathroom suites from the 1980s?!), which is why we’re looking ahead to 2020.

Contemporary shouldn’t be confused with “modern”, which is a distinct style in its own right. Modern designs first came to the fore during the inter-war years, from the 1920s right through to the 1950s, when the ornate and overly embellished products of the Edwardian and Victorian eras, were replaced by simplified designs using exciting new materials like plastic and vinyl.

So with all this in mind, let’s take a look at some stunning contemporary bathroom ideas which we feel will be a big hit in 2020.

1. Family style

The first of our contemporary bathroom ideas is this stunning family bathroom. Featuring a multi-functional shower bath and thermostatic shower, it the perfect shared space.

Eden collection

With patterned shower wall panels, as well as a subtle grey colour palette, this truly is a contemporary space. To add a more organic feel, we’ve also included some warm wood touches, with the bamboo bath board, duck board, stool and towel shelf.

2. Curves in all the right places

Contemporary style needn't be all about straight lines and geometric shapes. This curvaceous design helps to soften the look.

Harrison collection

The freestanding bath suite from the Harrison collection really adds luxury to a modest-sized room. By using a few tried and tested design tricks, like the curved shower enclosure, you can make the most of your space, whilst the frameless design keeps things light and bright.

Which products?

3. Back to nature

Organic materials and weathered surfaces are set to become even more popular, as we look for contemporary bathroom ideas that bring respite from the concrete jungle.

Burton collection

A combination of gorgeous weathered wood effect furniture from the Burton collection and shower wall panels have been used to great effect, to create a more natural look and feel to this bathroom.

Which products?

4. Concrete chic

The industrial look has been a popular interior design style for many a year. However, we expect to see a more urban touch to proceedings in the coming months.

Bergne bathroom furniture

Sleek metallic frames and concrete effect finishes combine to bring a more gritty, designer feel to this bathroom. Black accessories add accent to the monochrome colour scheme.

Which products?

5. Refined modernity

Mid-century style furniture, which draws on inspiration from the modern era, is fast becoming a popular choice for contemporary bathrooms.

Hale greystone matt bathroom furniture range

With slender legs and a semi wall hung design, combine with an industrial style bath for a bathroom that wouldn't feel out of place in a Downtown Manhattan apartment.

6. Urban jungle

A lack of outdoors space means many of us are turning to our interiors to provide us with a green and pleasant space. In 2020, we expect to see bathrooms featuring a mix of houseplants and more urban touches.

Morris dark concrete grey bathroom furniture

The dark concrete effect furniture from the Morris range combines perfectly with the warm wood effect wall tiles and trailing houseplants. For more contemporary bathroom ideas, why not discover the perfect plants for bathrooms?

7. New industrial

A more contemporary take on the industrial look, this bathroom features slimmer lines and more delicate features.

Scher bathroom furniture

Black accents are massively on-trend and the slim frames, featured in the furniture and shower panels, are key to this look. The feature wall, with gorgeous turquoise green tiles in a herringbone pattern, is also an element which is increasing in popularity.
