A relaxing bathroom space has never been more important than it is in 2021. After a year like 2020 we all deserve a spa-like bathroom experience, a beautiful space to unwind, tune out from the world and recharge with a good soak or hot shower. The 5 bathroom trends we’re expecting in 2021 deliver on this and more. Let’s take a look at what 2021 has in store for bathrooms.
Arched Entry Showers
This trend is great if you don’t have a large bathroom but want your bathroom to make a statement and make you feel good. An arch entry shower can add character and wow factor to any bathroom plus the curved arch evokes a sense of calm and peace. Take this trend to the next level by adding a unique tile inside the shower to highlight the arch and draw the eye in.
Traditional bathrooms are getting separated in 2021. We’re seeing designers place tubs and showers behind glass walls creating wet rooms made entirely of materials made to get wet. With zero entry showers, the ease of use makes them functional and the elegant glass walls add emphasis to freestanding tubs and create a spa-like atmosphere. Wet rooms will be a big trend in 2021 and they will continue to add value to our homes for many years to come.
Freestanding tubs are always on trend but in 2021 we’re seeing them evolve from the traditional white porcelain tubs we know to full marble and granite tubs. When paired with a matching floor and wall tile the monochromatic full stone look is a show stopper. Not only are they stunning but the skin-to-stone contact during a soak creates a soothing, back to nature bath experience.
We’re seeing full slab walls, tub surrounds, and backsplashes become a major bathroom trend in 2021. Whether marble or sintered stone, full slab walls are the perfect addition to any bathroom renovation. Full slab walls are easy to clean and add a classic yet modern look.
Unique Tile Application
In 2021 we’re seeing designers experiment with bathroom tile application whether in the shower, on tub surrounds or on the floor. We’re seeing combinations of vertical, offset, subway or stacked, paired with different colours and materials. Using tile to create interest will be a big trend in 2021.
Bathrooms will always serve as a retreat from everyday life. We can’t wait to see how 2021 elevates the bathroom space.
