The bathroom is an underrated space if you really think about it. After all, we do spend a lot of time there. But it’s often the last room people think of remodeling, giving priority to kitchens and living rooms during most home renovations.
Just imagine getting out of bed in the morning and walking into a beautiful, bright, well-designed bathroom… You’d really be starting your day off right! Well, 2021 has brought many new design trends, positioning the high-traffic bathroweom as a space worthy of a little renovation-love. So, let’s get to it!
Where should I start with my bathroom renovation?
First, decide which bathroom you’ll be remodeling: is it your master bathroom or a simple powder room? Then decide what your budget for this renovation will be. It’s definitely best to start any construction with the flooring, then work your way up to cabinets, countertops, fixtures, wall finishes, and so on.
You’ll also need to take into consideration whether or not plumbing will be moved. If your new bathroom will have the same floor plan as your current one, your renovation will be a much simpler task.
However, it’s worth it to make sure everything is configured in a way that will make your bathroom as functional and spacious as possible. So don’t go making any rash decisions! Plan it out and determine exactly what you need before you begin.
What are the top bathroom trends of 2021?
After spending most of 2020 tucked away at home, many of us began reassessing not only the cleanliness and organization of our homes, but also the design. And the bathroom is no exception!
This new year already has many exciting, sleek, and stylish bathroom trends we can’t wait to share with you for your renovation project!
1. Floating Vanities
Hello off-the-floor vanities, and goodbye impossible-to-reach flooring! The floating vanity has slowly been making its way into bathroom design for a while now, but this year, it’s all the rage.
With its contemporary feel, light and airy look, limitless options for customization, and convenient floor accessibility, you can’t go wrong with a floating vanity.
2. Brass Fixtures
Oh, how we love a brass fixture in bathrooms! There’s just something about them that feels chic and elegant.
Unlike the traditional chrome and steel fixtures which can feel cold and stark, brass fixtures add warmth and depth to bathrooms, making them much more welcoming. If it’s comfort and style you’re looking for, go with this trend!
3. Backlit Mirrors
To give your bathroom a little modern flair, try adding this 2021 design craze: the backlit mirror or medicine cabinet. One thing we often don’t consider in the bathroom is lighting. But a little ambient light can be perfect for soothing baths, early mornings, or trips to the bathroom in the middle of the night.
Backlit mirrors can easily become a focal point and bring warmth and dimension to a space that far too often feels quite cold.
4. Botanical Walls
Bring the garden inside with gorgeous botanical wall treatments. Just because your bathroom is one of the smallest rooms in the house doesn’t mean it can’t be the boldest!
Adding lush floral patterns to the walls can make your space feel tropical, luxurious, warm, and inviting. And who wouldn’t want to feel like they’re on vacation every time they set foot in a foliage-covered bathroom?
5. Marble Walls & Countertops
If it’s drama you crave, marble will not disappoint. Whether you decide to do the countertops or the walls—or both!—marble always brings a bold, dynamic dimension to any space, while providing a sleek, clean look that’s easy to scrub down.
If you don’t want to break the bank, there are many faux marble or tile options available, too.
6. *Bonus* Soaker Tubs
Who couldn’t use a long hot soak these days? So why not take the plunge (literally) and install a stylish soaker tub in your bathroom? Whether it’s a flat-bottom, asymmetrical, or claw-foot design, these oversize tubs offer unmatched style and functionality.
