2020 Bathroom Design Trends. 



 Here's a breakdown of the latest bathroom trends according to design industry experts.  

Design Your Saskatoon Bathroom With The 2020 Pantone Colour Of The Year- Classic Blue.

Classic blue represents a “brings a sense of peace and tranquillity to the human spirit”. It makes perfect sense that colour with that meaning behind it would be chosen for a place of rest and tranquillity—the bathroom.
Depending on your style and taste, Classic Blue can be used in a variety of ways. For example, a popular way to include colour in the bathroom is through tiles, either for the flooring or in the shower. You can also include a Classic Blue bathroom vanity if you want a pop of colour against flat neutrals that can use a bit of edge. If you’re feeling extra daring, you can even paint an entire bathroom Classic Blue! But we know that not everyone can commit to a paint job in a bold colour. If you want to incorporate the 2020 Colour Of The Year in smaller steps, you can try adding towels, flowers and paintings. 

Design With The Hottest Faucet Finish in 2020: Matte Black


The bathroom is a great place to experiment with matte black finishes. You can change your current faucet, showerhead, handheld showerhead, handles, pulls and lighting to this popular finish and see your bathroom transform from ordinary to extraordinarily modern.

Matte black finishes have been perfected to meet the needs of bathroom users, so you don’t need to worry about the finishes wearing off. Many luxury and mid-range brands are adding even more matte black faucets and accessories to their lineup, giving you a large selection to choose from in 2020.

Design Au Naturel and Eco-Friendly


Let your mind be free in the serenity of greenery in the bathroom. Between the hardness of bathroom finishes and materials, it's a much-welcomed idea to have plants and foliage in the bathroom. Bathroom plants are great to freshen the air, add some softness and of course, colour.

The new year also brings focus to creating an eco-friendly bathroom by changing out inefficient faucets and plumbing fixtures. 


Here are some bathroom features to think about:
  • Change out your toilet to a low-flow model
  • Install a low-flow showerhead that works on magnetized poles, like ones from American Standard
  • Get a motion-activated faucet so there’s less water wasted between washing your hands and brushing your teeth
  • Choose quartz countertops as opposed to other materials. Quartz impacts the environment significantly less than other materials

Design In Plain Sight


Here’s what’s funny about bathrooms—there are certain things we want to show off about them, like beautiful tile work in the shower or a gorgeous clawfoot bathtub. But there are other things we don’t necessarily love to look at...like plumbing and drains.

But what if they were designed to be extra pleasing to the eye? That’s what 2020 is all about.

Exposed plumbing is a rising trend. Bathroom brands are now creating industrial-inspired pipe systems that are meant to be shown off in an array of beautiful finishes. You don’t have to hide away complicated pipe systems behind drywall anymore!

As for drains, bathroom brands and designers have found a clever way to hide them in plain sight. Many shower drains can now be designed to look as though they are part of the shower tile or shower floor. The result is a sleek look that doesn’t distract!

You can even go as far as a wall-hung toilet to remove the bulk and clutter of a toilet septic tank. Bathroom brands like TOTO are trailblazing this 2020 toilet trend. It’s also great for smaller spaces where a tank can take up precious square footage.

Design Your Bathroom With Colours, Wallpaper and Fun!


Step outside your comfort zone in the colours and designs you choose for your bathroom. Break out of traditional neutrals in the bathroom and experiment with pops of colour in textiles, accents of paint colour and even wallpaper. Yes, wallpaper...But don’t think it’s the same type of wallpaper from your grandparents’ homes.

Wallpapers come in so many varieties these days. You can choose anything from gentle geometric patterns to bold prints and textures. But a great alternative to wallpaper is a nice tile. Tiles also come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours for any project. The options are endless.

Review from clients who received a new furnace from Gibbon. 

I was so impressed with the service - right from the initial call to provide a quote, through the whole installation process, and the final return visit to check on the installation and functioning of our new furnace. Upon meeting Brent who provided the quote, I felt confidence in this company. He was courteous, professional and very knowledgeable. His crew that came to install the furnace, Aaron and David were awesome! They were friendly, professional and took great pride in their work. Their team work and work ethic are very admirable too. They cleaned up after their work was done and made sure to go over things with me. Brent returned several days later to see how things were working with the new furnace and reviewed everything with me again. I'm more than happy that we chose this company to replace our old furnace with a new one! Thank You!

Review from clients who received a new water heater from Gibbon.


We phoned Gibbon in the morning to have a water heater replaced. They were able to have an installer come that afternoon. Brett was the technician who came. He was very friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. The first thing he did was to place a mat down the staircase to keep the carpet clean - impressive. When he encountered an unexpected problem, he did not get upset. When Brett needed a different model than what had been requested, Daniel brought it quickly and moved the items in and out of the house handily. Brett and Daniel worked efficiently and effectively to complete the job. Brett was professional in his advice, explanation of the billing and the operation of the heater. The cost was as had been quoted. Overall, we were quite impressed and we will use the services of Gibbon again if and when needed. Don and Marg S

Review from clients who received a new garage heater from Gibbon.


I had this company install a garage heater for me last winter and no words can express the level of happiness ! They did an amazing job installing everything and getting everything set up for me when I got home on the weekend. Their office staff is amazing at working around your schedule and will make sure you are taken care of. I recommend anyone who is looking at getting a garage heater installed to give them a call you will not be disappointed!

Trusted Saskatoon Photographer Imagery Share The Evolution Of Photography

Photographs....memories and precious moments in our lives captured in time with a click of a camera shutter. These are the occasions and days of our lives that only happen once. Trust the professionals at Imagery Photography Saskatoon with your special moments because they understand the importance these memories hold and work with you to ensure that they stay with you for a lifetime. Imagery are your Trusted Saskatoon photographers and in this latest article, owner Milton shares his thoughts on the evolution of photography. 

The Evolution Of Photography


Everything moves and shifts with the slow march of time until not much of the past normals are left to be sifted from the sands of the new.

There’s no question that tech has made us much more portable than we ever were. The equipment itself is far more sophisticated and capable — we can see what we are shooting in real-time; we can fine-tune everything to whatever our needs are. We are now able to transmit our pictures from anywhere we can get an internet connection. 

When I started, everything was dependent on processed film, which meant having to bring film, a darkroom kit including enlarging and print-making equipment, and a transmitter (very much like a souped-up fax machine). We’d have to find or at least arrange for a telephone line and telephone access when we needed to send our images. The phone lines were all analogue, and each picture took around 10 minutes to send — if the line was interrupted for any reason, we’d have to start over. If we got out 10 images in a day, that was huge.

Photographers now can send wide arrays of photos multiple times during a day. The upside of all of this is more time on the scene providing coverage and more choices sent.  The smartphone has killed the lower-end camera market, and if it hasn’t killed the mid-range market, it’s sure breathing down its neck. Everyone has a camera with them now at all times, and there's no doubt that we're seeing images that we never before could have contemplated. As we all know, it’s not just still images but also video.

I think it’s the ultimate democratization of photography — anyone at any time from anywhere can produce images that can affect how we think of the world around us. I feel that the common misconception in the debate is that photography has a set value for everyone. I always try to see it in the same way as food shopping. Some of us love to eat, we love to cook, we love to discover new restaurants. 

We spend a disproportionate amount of our income at local farmers' markets, high-end supermarkets, and new openings. It matters to us and it’s something we want to invest in. Others want to spend their money on cars or clothes. That’s fine: they won’t be spending $200 on dinner, because they see no value in it. Photography is very much the same. If a client perceives the value of the event photography to be $100, then they are going to spend $100; a client looking for a $1200 photography delivery is not going to book a $100 photographer.

With each advance in the cellphone market, I wonder what the long-term prognosis is for the high-end cameras. The next evolutionary phase of photography might not be a progression in the way we make images. Instead, it’s quite possible the next unseen horizon will come from the way we share those images with the world or how we store them for ourselves. If a photograph indeed captures a memory, what use is that memory unless it can more tangibly be recalled. Looking back in the history of photography has each subsequent advancement not strived to make the photo more qualitative, more lasting, and more real?
