Sheltering in place became a thing in 2020, and with it came a greater awareness of the hygiene of our dwellings.
Expect interiors highlighting easy-to-clean surfaces and antimicrobial fixtures as hygiene remains a primary priority, particularly in high-traffic locations like bathrooms. Fortunately, these elements are included in the 2021 bath trends without sacrificing style.
This article highlights six trending bathroom remodeling ideas for you to try in 2021.
- Large Format Tiles
Shower designs with large-format tiles are highly coveted focal spots with fewer grout lines. These larger tiles have lifted bathroom décor standards to new heights.
With fewer grout lines, the cleaning gets more accessible, and hence they are the perfect choice for shower surrounds.
Experiment with different tile configurations, such as staggered jumbo subway tiles, vertical rows to make the ceiling appear more prominent, or horizontal rows of light and dark tones to create big stripes. To add clarity to the look, add accent tiles.
- Floating vanity
If you are constrained on space in the bathroom, look for ways to make the most of what you have. Of course, you cannot get rid of the toilet, shower area, or sink; however, you can aesthetically alter the space. Consider a set of floating vanities.
A floating vanity appears to be hanging in the air and leaves space below free and open. If you want to call it an optical illusion, leaving extra space beneath the vanity will make your bathroom feel larger and less constrained by cabinets and fixtures. Besides, it makes bathroom floor cleaning more manageable.
- Smart Toilets
Smart toilets and bidets, formerly viewed as a futuristic and expensive luxury, are now finding a prominent role in the post-pandemic home.
Hands-free features, such as self-closing lids and touch-free flushing, are included in smart toilets to reduce contact with germy surfaces. Self-cleaning technology, which features a bacteria-killing light under the cover, inside mechanics that clean the basin for you, and cling-free bowl surfaces, is another feature to look forward to in 2021.
- Wooden-look Tiles
Porcelain and ceramic continue to be the most preferred flooring materials in bathrooms due to their versatility. Ceramic and porcelain tile offers various benefits, including durability, hypoallergenic properties, moisture and bacteria resistance, ease of maintenance and cleaning, and an extensive range of fashionable patterns, colors, and sizes to pick from.
Expect to see ceramic and porcelain tiles that look like natural hardwood finishes, as well as marbles with a lot of contrast.
- Welcome nature
After being stuck for almost a year in 2020, why not let mother nature find its way into our lives through design.
Consider your bathroom to be your home’s inner oasis—a place where you may unwind. It will feel like a spa when you combine the outdoors with your interior design. You don’t even have to remove all of the fixtures altogether.
Even a few plants might help it feel more connected to the Earth. Be selective about what will grow best in your bathroom, depending on how much light it receives. Consider ivies, ferns, and peace lilies for low-light situations.
- Warm tints with better durability
After a long year, a fresh coat of paint in a new color goes a long way toward freshening up and starting afresh, especially in the bathroom. The best colors for 2021 are bright and warm, making them a perfect combination for space where you begin and end your day.
Look for new durable paints in any hue you select to help your bathroom stay clean for longer. Paints became more sanitary, stain-resistant, and able to withstand pandemic-motivated cleaning in the year 2020.
These developments have also allowed hard-wearing paints to be available in various finishes, allowing clients to acquire the look they desire without sacrificing washability.
