2020 had us looking for antimicrobial finishes and fixtures and easy-to-clean surfaces. 2021 keeps the clean but brings back design. Check out these great bathroom remodel trends that are sure to bring a fresh new look to your home!
A well placed and adequately hung vanity can add a lot of space to a bathroom while offering a free and airy feel to the space. It is a great step away from the bathroom vanity that might pass as a sturdy piece of furniture. The added space can be utilized for decoration or storage, above or below. The best thing about a floating vanity is that it does not match any particular style. It can be fitted with any type of hardware and can be personalized in almost any way you can think of.
Clawfoot bathtubs come in numerous shapes, sizes and varieties. These kinds of tubs can add value to your home in and of themselves (as long as they are installed properly). Many clawfoot tubs are made from iron or porcelain and come in an ovular double slipper shape, however, they are also available in marble, fiberglass and other materials and come in several designs including customized fits.
Larger Wall Tiles
No more small mosaic tiles on the bathroom walls. The craze this year is toward larger-format tiles. These tiles involve less visible grout (which means less to clean) and they appear more luxurious than the small ones. Slab tiles also look great when used with stone, marble or other natural materials.
Among the most common things updated in a bathroom remodel is the bathroom mirror. Whether it is a singular mirror or a mirror cabinet, the trend is towards back-lit mirrors because it is such an ideal solution to add lighting without adding any glare. Another popular option are specialized mirrors such as lit make-up mirrors and floor length bathroom mirrors.
Darker Color Schemes
Bathrooms (in addition to kitchen spaces) have been going moody for a while. Many bathroom remodels are leaning toward darker or natural shades such as blacks, browns and dark blues. From color choices in tile to natural materials in counters, there are numbers of ways to get in on the moody bathroom craze.
Brighten it Up
If moody dark colors aren’t your thing, opt for a pop of bright color. Gone are the days of the solid bleached white bathroom. Bring your bathroom to life by adding some color and character to it! Think about a pastel to lighten it up without a substantial shock.
Add Some Nature
Choices in materials for bathrooms are trending towards the more natural, however you can also bring nature into your bathroom with a well positioned window, a potted plant or even an awesome art piece.
Quartz is scratch and stain resistant as well as easy to clean. Plus, quartz fits right into the natural trend in bathroom remodeling currently! While they start at a higher price point, quartz countertops are extremely durable and require virtually no maintenance at all.
In addition to the trend towards natural materials seen in other places, the floors have great innovations. The wood-look tiles these days are leaps and bounds ahead of synthetics and look-alikes of the past. Today’s wood-look tiles are durable and beautiful. To incorporate a special touch to your bathroom remodel, think about installing a heated floor for comfort.
