An open concept bathroom appeared first in luxury hotel bathrooms. As the trend spread, designers began incorporating that style into their master bedroom design schemes for private homes.
This design scheme is just as controversial as it is popular, because people are unsure if they’ll like it and whether or not to sacrifice privacy to have it. The concept may seem strange to those who aren’t familiar with it, especially since a toilet in close proximity to the bed does raise some concerns. An open bathroom design does not mean you simply place a traditional bathroom somewhere inside the bedroom. The toilet is generally situated in a separate area of the bedroom with walls and a door. Similar to water closets popular in Europe, where a bathroom is separate from the toilet, and only the sink, shower or bathtub is in the bathroom. This draws the eyes to more elegant features. Keeping a toilet in a separate room also adds a perfect balance of privacy and openness.
No longer will you stand behind the bathroom door or wall when getting ready for that dinner date, or work in the morning. Privacy glass can also be used for more privacy, but many feel getting ready in the open provides a free, liberating feeling. This is a very popular trend all throughout the interior design world and will continue well into the future.
4. CONSOLE STYLE ~ VANITIES
2020 will be all about minimalist console-like vanities instead of heavy bulky furniture. Great for smaller spaces because it makes the room appear much larger and without obstructing the space with a bulky looking vanity. Perfect for powder rooms.
Integrate the trend: If there’s an area where we stock pile a bunch of products, it’s certainly the bathroom! For integrating this design, you’ll need to keep just your necessities visable in the space. Since bathrooms are somewhat humid and warm, anything that “spoils easily” (e.g. perfumes) should be stored elsewhere.
