2021 Bathroom Trends: Breathe New Life Into Your Bath Space
There’s no better place to play around with design than in the bathroom. And there’s no better time than now to bring a fresh look into your space with a few new trends.
Bathroom styles can range from classic to modern to transitional. There are a few ways to breathe new life into any bathroom design ideas: working with new finishes, pulling ideas from nature and combining modern and traditional details are just a few trends we’re excited to see making a splash this year.
Here are a few ways to make those ideas work.
Play Around + Include Patterns
This designer gave the small bath space an impressive amount of style, putting thought into every detail. The cross-shaped pattern in the tiles adds stylish appeal against the turquoise background of the space.
You can also include colorful fixtures that will delight whoever happens to be in the space, like the cherry red gate valve handle above. The contrast of black and white also brings bold impact to the vanity. It’s amazing what you can do in a small space — with the right products and a little creativity.
Dark Details and Subtle Style
The rich wood featured in this bathroom’s vanity makes an inviting and stylish statement, especially against the neutral palette in the space. Pairing a natural material like wood with glass and metal details helps to balance this bathroom design. Adding handsome textiles and plants soften the feel of the space, as well.
The light grey tile and clean white trim offset the darker details of the sink and Pewter bath fittings to finish out the look successfully.
Mixed Finishes for the Modern Home
With plentiful daylight and bold lines, this bath space boasts quite a bit of modern appeal.
Bringing the outdoors inside is one of our favorite trends this year and another great way to amp up your design. We love the views in the bathroom design above, and the right window design will make your space a true retreat. “A biophilic bathroom design will boast certain patterns that reduce stress and improve creativity while featuring forms and materials that emulate those found in the great outdoors,” according to Homes and Gardens.
This sink is truly something to talk about. The tall curve of the spout adds just the right touch of classic elegance. The matte texture of the sink handles pairs perfectly with the sleek details of the spout, for a thoughtful, impressive design.
Split Finish Trends
This year’s trends are all about detail. Sometimes your faucet can be a statement piece, an anchor to tie together other details in the design. Play around with different finishes on the same material and create a split-finish faucet look, like this one.
This spout and handle combo features a dark Rustica Brass contrasted with the Satin Elite Brass for a warm and inviting finish to any bath space.
Clean and Bright Palettes
This bathroom is the perfect blend of industrial plumbing styles, traditional marble and a fresh white palette.
You can expect to see more residential bathroom designs with luxury hotel amenities this year, especially since we’re staycationing more often. With the comforts of modern technology and plenty of daylighting, this beautiful bath space is an inviting retreat from the rest of the home.
A Touch of Personality (and Color)
Win big design points with creative displays of color in your sink finishes. Several paint brands have named their 2021 color palettes, so get inspired and add some color to your space.
Watermark’s selection of handles and finishes gives designers a wide array of colors to work with in the bathroom, whether that’s a sleek modern space or a classically-detailed powder room. The surprising pop of blue in this sink space is sure to delight visitors and adds interest to the design.
Warmth and Whimsy
Leverage the warm look of wood in your bath space to create a big design impact. The blend of wood and brass details creates a complete style in this sink feature, and the modern circular handles add a shapely bit of flair.
