Top 5 Bathroom Design Trends in 2021
Most changes in bathroom design trends shift toward comfort and style. But as a result of the pandemic and being isolated in homes has been necessary, the trends in bathroom design have transitioned toward creating a functional, relaxing space in one’s own home. Here’s a look at the top five bathroom remodel trends for 2021.
Trend 1: Big and Beautiful
Traditionally, the bathroom is one of the smallest rooms in the house. Maybe it’s because everyone was cooped up so much last year, but enlarging this single room is one of the most popular bathroom trends this year. Homeowners are moving toward more efficient storage options, larger bathtubs and open or walk-in showers with increased space. By replacing a closed shower with a walk-in shower, the space feels more open, relaxed, and visually increases the size of the room.
Trend 2: Laser-Etched Solid Surface
Laser-etched solid surface products offer the same cleanliness and low maintenance as acrylic but with the look and feel of tile. Laser-etching is a great way to customize your bathroom with beautiful countertops.
Trend 3: Soaking Bathtubs
The pandemic brought about many changes in the world. This increased the desire to find ways to rest and relax inside one’s own home. Needing a place to relax has large bathtubs at the top of the list for bathroom remodel trends this year. One popular bathroom layout continues to be a separate tub and shower, so you get the best of both worlds. Walk-in bathtubs are also rising in popularity. They are larger and allow for a gentle, relaxing soak while accommodating older generations in more common multi-generational households.
