2021 Bathroom Remodeling Trends To Keep An Eye On

Are you planning to remodel your bathroom in 2021? In this article, we'll cover some of the most exciting bathroom remodeling trends of the coming year. 

We're finding that the most desirable bathroom remodels focus on turning the bathroom into a more luxurious and peaceful environment. Homeowners spent 2020 cooped up in their houses, so now their homes are becoming their palaces. In the bathroom, this means creating a spa-like environment. There's much you can do to make your bathroom a more relaxing environment. These upcoming trends can make your bathroom a more comfortable and enjoyable place to spend time. 

Warm Colors

How to Choose the Best Neutral Paint Color for Bathrooms

Cool neutrals like grays and whites were popular for years, but lately, these colors have taken the back seat to warmer shades like browns, soft creams, and beige. 

We recommend decorating with warm colors in areas like the vanity, which you can stain instead of paint, and with wall tile accent colors. When choosing a palette, explore colors like copper, honey brown, light yellow, and deep orange. We think these shades make it easier to soak in the warmth of your bathroom, whether you're enjoying a warm shower or a long bath. 

Soaker Tubs

Speaking of soaking it in - soaker tubs are more popular than ever. These fixtures make your bathroom seem more like a spa, and less like your house. Some homeowners believe they can't install a soaker tub in their bathroom because they're prohibited by the size of the room. Soaker tubs have traditionally been large fixtures. 

What many don't realize is that compact soaker tubs are available, if that's your preference - including mini soaker tubs that allow you to bathe while sitting up in a tub that's shaped almost like a cup. These mini tubes fit in a small corner, allowing you to install a bathtub where there never was a bathtub before. You may even be able to fit one of these small tubs in your half bath or 3/4 bath, depending on its size. Work with your contractor to find a soaker tub that's right for your bathroom. 

Large Format Wall Tiles

Large-format wall tiles make your bathroom look less busy. This can be important especially if your bathroom is very small and cramped. These wall tiles are also easier to clean because bigger tiles mean less grout and fewer surfaces to become mildew-stained. Your contractor can direct you to some material suppliers that sell quality wall tiles for an affordable price, so talk to your contractor about your material preferences before you make your pick. 

Smart Toilet

There's nothing more luxurious than a toilet with a self-closing lid, touch-free flushing, and a self-cleaning function. Smart toilets occupied an obscure corner of the market just a few years ago, but they're quickly becoming the desired plumbing fixture in newly remodeled bathrooms. Depending on your budget and how important it is for you to install a luxury toilet, you may even choose a model with features like a heated seat, and built-in stereo to play music!  

Best of all, smart toilets tend to have few cracks and crevices between surfaces (this is a part of their minimalist aesthetic), which means that cleaning your smart toilet may be easier than cleaning a traditional toilet. That's something to celebrate.  

Heated Flooring

Want to feel completely comfortable in your bathroom? Install heated flooring. Imagine stepping out of the shower and feeling a warm floor beneath your feet. Pure perfection!

Of course, heated flooring isn't just a luxury item: it's also a practical way to keep a cold bathroom just a little bit warmer. 

In-floor electric heating needs to be installed when you're replacing the flooring in your bathroom, and it should be installed by a professional. Heated flooring that's poorly installed could require you to tear out your flooring, and you don't want that. It's important to install the heating system right the first time. Hire someone who has experience working with these materials in the past.

Quartz Countertops

Just a few years ago, granite was the countertop material of choice. Today, quartz is king! What do we love about quartz? Everything. Its beauty, its durability, its minimal maintenance requirements. Quartz is made from crushed stone mixed with resin to create an ultra-hard surface that never needs to be sealed. It's naturally stain-resistant and scratch-resistant. 

The best feature of all is that quartz can be made to look like other types of stone, like marble and granite. It's so good at mimicking the look of stone, you probably won't be able to tell that it's not real stone. It's important to find a quartz supplier that provides quality quartz that will look and perform its best.
