Thinking about a bathroom remodel in 2021? You’re in luck. We’ve put together some of the latest trends in bathroom remodeling and bathroom decorating/design to help spur some ideas and start planning the perfect bathroom!
1. Create an at-home spa experience
There’s no doubt that 2020 was an incredibly stressful year. To combat that increased anxiety, many have been looking for ways to relax and practice self-care without leaving their homes. Therefore, one of the biggest trends we see emerging and continuing throughout 2021 is homeowners turning their bathrooms into their own personal spa getaway.
Luxurious, spa-like features such as rain showers, massaging showerheads, soaking tubs, hydrotherapy tubs, relaxing lighting, and heated flooring are all great options to consider. This added relaxation, comfort, and luxury not only feels great but can do wonders for both your mental and physical well-being.
2. Embrace natural elements
While bringing a little bit of the outdoors in has been trendy for quite some time, 2020 has caused even more people to embrace the natural look than ever before. With spending so much time inside this past year, the outdoors became a welcome escape. There’s just something about a little fresh air, sunshine, and trees that make everything seem a little better. It makes sense people want to bring a little bit of that relief indoors.
When remodeling your bathroom, consider how to work in natural touches throughout the space. Using wood and stone elements can make the space feel more rugged and outdoorsy. Mix in some plants, greenery, and plenty of natural light to truly make the space feel like an outdoor haven. If you really want to shake things up design-wise, botanical walls (also called “living walls”) are also continuing to increase in popularity.
3. Pantone’s color of the year
Looking to be really on-trend in 2021? Check out Pantone’s (double) color of the year, Ultimate Gray and Illuminating. Pantone describes this gray and yellow combination as a “marriage of color” that’s meant to represent “strength and hopefulness.” We could all use a little more of both those things as we continue to navigate these turbulent times.
While we’re on the subject of color, many people are also embracing bold accent colors to help make their space really pop.
4. Improved functionality
After spending more time at home with their families, many realized that their bathroom is not as functional as they thought when everyone is consistently crammed together. So, this year, bathroom remodels are all about functionality and making the space meet your needs.
When planning a bathroom remodel, consider time and space-saving options, such as expanding the square footage, switching to a space-saving walk-in shower, or even adding SMART technology to help improve your family’s morning and evening routines.
5. Focus on sustainability
While making your home more energy-efficient and making more sustainable and eco-friendly choices isn’t new, the trend continues to become more prevalent year after year. With utility costs increasing, budgets stretched further, and increased awareness about our environmental impact, more people are looking for sustainable and efficient options for their homes.
A bathroom renovation is the perfect time to look at making your home and lifestyle more sustainable. Water-saving faucets and showerheads, low-flush toilets, and energy-efficient lighting can all make a big difference both on your monthly utility bills and for our community and the world overall.
