Bathroom Trends

A bathroom update can add some serious value to a home, and with the focus of bathroom design centering around relaxation, it’s important to stay on trend and on par with the latest products and styles.

Baths are slowly trending towards fashion over function, so we’re seeing a jump toward stylistic choices like free standing tubs, deck mounted tub fillers and tiled rug patterns on the floor – adding a seamless, streamlined look to the entire room. Along those same lines, zero entry showers and shower ledges are on the rise, as is built-in seating in the bathroom. Marry these trends with a double floating vanity (or single if space is an issue) with a lighted mirror to match and it’s not any old wash room – you’ve created a spa-like retreat complete with all the latest styles.

Kitchen Trends

So much life happens in a kitchen – from prepping and cooking to spending time with family and friends – it’s truly is the hub of the whole house. Upgrading a kitchen means rearranging a family’s “home base,” so it’s especially important to keep function in mind, even when updating the style. Let’s take a look at some of the newest trends for kitchens.


Keeping function top of mind, tall upper cabinets are still trending up -- making it easy for the average homeowner to store kitchen instruments more effectively. The old standby lazy Susan might now be replaced with a new multi-function pullout corner base that not only stores more, but glides in and out with ease. White is still the color of choice; however, gray and blue cabinets remain on trend with new shades and finishes forthcoming. Also look for new styles to emerge in 2020 that will allow natural wood tones and grains to stand out. Walnut will be especially popular, along with some matte finish woods.

Kitchen islands are a versatile entity — a gathering place, a space to sort groceries, food prep central, a kitchen table — seriously, you name it, a kitchen island can transform into it. With that, large-sized kitchen islands are expected to be huge in 2020 (no pun intended). Island/table combos are also expected to be popular, while double islands also seem to be on designer’s radar this season. With traditional dining rooms on the way out, kitchen islands have some big shoes to fill.

Kitchen Design

The popularity of the modern farmhouse trend continues to grow, but is being matched by coastal design with, luckily, many of the same pieces still being relevant. Elongated, white subway tiles go with either aesthetic to create the illusion of a brighter, larger space. Wood accents and wood range hoods are very much “in,” working well with that farm-fresh look or can easily transcend to a cottage by the sea.

Flooring Trends

Waterproof Flooring

Life is messy and spills happen. However, protecting the most moisture prone rooms, such as bathrooms, kitchens and laundry rooms, is a cinch with waterproof flooring that’s beautiful and durable. The typical thought may lean toward tile or luxury vinyl (which are waterproof), but the horizon has been expanded.

The wood look so often desired doesn’t need to deviate from wood itself, thanks to the emergence of waterproof hardwood. And when a softness underfoot is desired, welcome in waterproof carpet. Now all rooms can be free from the damaging aftermath of spills, pets, rain and mud, and other liquid upsets. Easy to clean and maintain — yet difficult to damage — these waterproof floors are an essential choice for any space in the house.

Luxury Vinyl Plank and Luxury Vinyl Tile

The talk of the town is vinyl and there’s good reason: Luxury vinyl flooring – whether LVP or LVT – is a beautiful, cost-effective alternative to its more traditional counterparts. Fact of the matter is, it’s a hardwood-flooring dupe that has been known to fool even an astute eye (or foot).

Luxury vinyl can imitate wood or stone, and comes in a variety of style choices. Vinyl floors are waterproof, making them ideal for any room of the house, and they seem to literally come in an endless amount of color and design options.

Whole House Trends

Convertible Spaces

Gone are the days of dedicating one specific room to one specific need – with open floor plans and limited budgets, the everyday homeowner needs a way to get the most out of every room. Whether it’s an office space that can be easily converted to a spare bedroom when out-of-towners come to visit, or a media room that converts to a home gym, the flexibility to choose the right room for the right now makes the most sense for today’s homeowner.

Dedicated Laundry Rooms

Who out there really wants another room to clean in preparation for the in-laws? Moreover, who else is tired of shoving dirty laundry into cabinets and away from sight when company comes over? You can see why mudrooms are becoming a thing of the past and laundry rooms are quickly stepping in to take their place.

A dedicated laundry room means a closed-door alternative to a multi-function mudroom. Instead of a sea of outerwear, dirty shoes, clothes that need washing, dog food and pet leashes… imagine a tranquil oasis – the gentle hum of the dryer, the faint aroma of fresh linen, and more importantly, a door to hide the reality of the most soiled and dingy little secrets.

Home Offices

Lifestyle trends tend to spill over into all categories, which explains the increasing need for a home office space. Corporations big and small are beginning to recognize the benefit of flexible working hours and remote options, meaning today’s homeowner will likely need a quiet space to get down to business.

As companies start to adopt a more human-centric approach to the working day, the need for an in-home office increases. Be sure to carve out a quiet, secluded space (that can quickly double as a spare bedroom) for that remote workstation. Soft surroundings, like carpet or wood-look vinyl, neutral colors and rich accents are the perfect ways to dress this room for success.
