As we find ourselves well into the start of 2020, it’s time to consider some bathroom updates. A new year means a new sparkle for that bathroom of yours. We’ll look at updates that modernize the place and accommodate any budget.
After all, the bathroom is a necessary part of any home. Not only does it serve to clean up and prep for a new day, it’s a place to wind down after a long day of work and productivity.
The bathroom is an integral part of your day-to-day morning and evening ritual. It makes sense that you would want to invest in updating it for 2020.
7 Bathroom updates for 2020 to accommodate any budget
Here we have seven different bathroom updates for 2020. They range from low budget to high budget updates — DIY or hire a contractor, it’s up to you. Don’t feel overwhelmed by the sheer thought of updating your bathroom. Big changes begin with small projects. Find what you want to change and get to it. Break down your project into small steps. With each step taken, you’ll find yourself close to the completion of the project.
And before you know it, you’ll have quite the bathroom to enjoy and show off! So what are you waiting for? Let’s see what your options are for the start of the roaring 20s.
1 – Brass is in style
An industry standard for years, brass is an excellent material for the bathroom’s faucets and fixtures. It’s durable and versatile, lasting you years. Sure it may be a little pricier, but not without good reason.
Today it’s at the forefront of bathroom design. Brass comes in a variety of styles including chrome, bronze, brass, and nickel. It adds value to your home and gives a classic look to any room. If your plumbing is exposed, it can look intentional with beautiful brass pipes.
Don’t be shy about going for brass. You can incorporate more brass with mirror frames and other metal wall accents or light fixtures. It can bring a unifying and classic touch to any bathroom.
2 – Heated floors
Now, how about heated bathroom floors? For those who live in wintry climates, this is an appealing feature to consider. Who loves cold floors in the wee hours of the morning? Few, if any of us, do.
It’s time to update that floor with something better and more comfortable. Heated floors are in. This is your time to make getting out of the shower a more pleasant experience. Keep those toes protected from a chilly floor.
According to Warmly Yours, floor heating systems run between $5 to $12 per square foot if you’re implementing “electric heated mats, rolls or cables with fixing strips.”
While it’s a project in and of itself, if you’re no stranger to DIY projects, this may be a job to be tackled on your own.
3 – Say hello to marble
Did you know marble is in style for 2020? Make of it what you wish. Marble floors or even walls and kitchen sink counters could be yours. Marble is timeless and it increases property value. It’s a great way to bring natural beauty to your mobile home’s bathroom. And maintenance is nothing to scoff at — it’s so easy. You can protect your marble surface by sealing it and cleaning it with a marble cleaner.
4 – Bold colors
In 2020, you’re letting go of the subdued and coming into the new decade with boldness. Black is in — among other bold colors such as burnt orange, royal blue, and emerald green. Brass and marble can pair well with the bold statement in color. So metallics and tile with bold colors are a must for 2020 bathroom updates.
5 – Freestanding sinks
And how about freestanding or floating sinks? They take up less space on the floor than the traditional cabinet sink. The sleek, modernized look gives a current touch to your bathroom.
6 – Integrate music
Here’s a cool idea. Install speakers in your bathroom and connect a playlist of relaxing spa music. This is great if you have a tub for a nice soak to wind down. It sets the mood and helps you switch your mental gears from work to rest.
7 – Bring in the greenery
And finally, bring in the greenery. There’s something charming about plants and 2020 is bringing them into your bathroom. A pop of rich green will spice up any bathroom aesthetic.
A new bathroom for the new year
There’s excitement in the new year — all sorts of new ideas take up our headspace. But don’t let them stay there. It’s time to put your ideas into action. Make your mobile home’s bathroom stand out above the rest. Try one or more of these updates and see some magic happen.
