Your bathroom is an ideal space for refreshing. Our bathrooms are one of the highest-trafficked environments in the home. It’s where we prioritize hygiene. Along with the kitchen, it’s the one room where homeowners want that “wow” factor.
Sprucing up your bathroom starts with the materials you choose to apply your own personal touch. In 2021, here’s what renovators and property owners will lean toward.
1. Add a Natural Aesthetic
Its natural appeal makes wood a popular choice. Over the years, the material has grown beyond floors and walls. It’s made its way to accent borders and bathroom furnishings. Wooden bases meshed with stainless steel fittings or matched with stone countertops are appearing regularly in new bathrooms.
2. Use Gold Accents
Gold metal is glamorous, sophisticated, classic, and remains a go-to in bathrooms. It reflects light and adds style. Whether presented with an elegant or industrial touch, gold says quality.
3. Customize with Tiles
There are subway tiles, small strips, and mosaics. Small tiles add a wondrous twist and visual appeal compared to conventional tiling. Use white tiles to create an open space or flip the script with a diagonal pattern that requires a keen eye for catching detail. Designers are also looking at bolder colors, such as sky blue or bright red, to add a unique touch.
4. Floating Vanities
Floating vanities are contemporary and space-saving solutions with a range of customization options. There are styles for faucets, sinks, and hardware. Go with a freestanding vanity or a wall-mounted option. Go horizontal or vertical, closed or open, high on the wall or low.
5. Back Lighting
More and more homeowners are opting for lighted mirrors and medicine cabinets. The feature offers a soothing and appealing ambient touch without reflection or glare. A dimmed option gives you a nightlight. A backlit design is decorative and functional and can bring out the unique qualities of stone countertops. Use it as a texture highlighter or a focal point in the bathroom.
6. Soaking Tubs
Space-savvy soaking tubs will be a top feature in the coming year. Flat-bottom, freestanding tubs are slowly out-distancing the popular clawfoot. The simple silhouette of these tubs fits into any style of bathroom. Smaller tubs are growing popular with the eco-friendly crowd. These tubs require less water and less time to fill.
7. Switch Up Your Sink
We don’t think much about it, but something as simple as changing out your sink could make a huge difference. With a variety of shapes, depths, and easy-to-clean materials, you can switch up the whole aesthetic of your bathroom by choosing a new handcrafted undermount sink.
Porcelain and ceramic remain popular bathroom staples. They promise durability, resistance to bacteria and moisture, and hypoallergenic traits. You’ll soon see these materials mimicking high-end marble and natural hardwood finishes. This is part of the organic look that gained traction in bathrooms in 2020. Expect heated flooring to find its place in bathroom renovation as well.
9. Graphic Wallpaper
Bathroom renovators are foregoing conventional and traditional wallpaper for brasher statements. Walls are being adorned in soft textures, natural finishes, and futuristic—even 3D—wallpaper designs. Scenic landscape-style murals are giving bathrooms an extraordinary perspective.
10. Replace Your Countertops
Natural materials continue to trend. People love the organic appeal that stone and marble add to their environments. In the bathroom, stone or marble countertops can add a classic, upscale ambiance. Not only are they appealing due to the variety of colors they come in, but each countertop is completely unique in pattern and design.
Quartz has specifically found its way into the hearts of homeowners in 2021. Among the many benefits of quartz is resistance to fostering bacteria. It’s also resistant to staining and scratching, and the stone is easy to maintain. This makes it a perfect choice for any bathroom design.
