If you are considering a bathroom remodel in 2021, then it is helpful to understand what the current trends are. Of course, placing your own spin on your remodeling projects is always a good idea, but reviewing the bathroom remodeling ideas is a great source of inspiration as you decide on the design style you prefer.
6 Innovative Bathroom Remodeling Ideas For 2021
Six innovative ways to transform your bathroom space to add aesthetic beauty, improved functionality and overall value include adding wall mount vanities, soaking tubs, quartz countertops, smart showers and back-lit mirrors, while using warm color choices. The following is a detailed review of each trend to help you decide on the style that works best for your home.
1. Wall Mount Bathroom Vanities
Wall-mount bathroom vanities, also called floating vanities, are bathroom cabinets and storage spaces that mount to the wall, rather than extend up from the floor. This gives the illusion that they are floating.
Wall-mount bathroom vanities are a trendy bathroom remodel idea. Vanities are a practical way to store things in your bathroom, and they add style to your bathroom space. There are different types of bathroom vanities. Some involve a complete unit that includes a countertop, bathroom sink and storage space, while others may only include certain parts, such as wall-mount bathroom cabinets.
2. Soaking Tubs
2020 was a stressful year for many due to COVID-19 and being forced to spend more time at home than ever before. Subsequently, there is a major trend toward anything that can provide homeowners with more rest and relaxation. One bathroom remodeling idea that we have seen implemented more in 2021 is the installation of large soaking tubs.
Even in some small or mid-sized bathrooms, you can install a soaking tub separate from the shower without taking up too much space, and they are perfect for larger bathrooms as well. A soaking tub is a great way to rest and have a glass of wine, while surrounded by candlelight and calm music after a long day of work or taking care of the kids.
3. Warm Color Choices
A fresh coat of paint is one of the simplest tasks involved with a bathroom remodeling project, and it is important in accomplishing the style you want. One common bathroom remodeling trend for 2021 is adding warm and vibrant colors, such as a rich red, soft blue and creamy white. These colors can make your bathroom more comforting and brighten your day before it begins in the mornings. You can choose bathroom vanities, fixtures and flooring that match the warm color choices you decide to go with.
4. Quartz Countertops
A recent study revealed that 74 percent of designers are choosing quartz as the preferred countertop material. This is due in large part to the aesthetic benefits that quartz countertops have to offer, and they are scratch-resistant and durable. When compared with other countertop materials, they return a large percentage of the investment in home resale value, despite costing more initially than many other materials. The colors of quartz countertops can also easily be personalized based on your design goals and other fixtures.
5. Smart Showers
It was only a matter of time before smart home technology made its way into bathrooms. Utilizing technology is a great way to modernize your bathroom during a remodel. Smart showers allow you to set a precise water temperature, provide showerhead control, set the shower time and set presets for the whole family. Smart toilets are also a great way to modernize your bathroom as well. Of course, the drawback to these appliances is installation, which is tricky for many homeowners. However, when hiring a bathroom remodeling contractor, they can handle the installation tasks for you.
6. Back-Lit Mirrors
New mirrors and medicine cabinets are involved with most bathroom remodeling projects. Back-lit mirrors that light up behind the mirror or medicine cabinet are eye-catching features trending as we dive deeper into 2021. This is a unique way to add more bathroom lighting, especially in the space around the mirror where it is most important. As mentioned, it also catches the attention of others and adds an innovative design style that most bathrooms remodeled before 2021 do not have. Back-lit mirrors require proper installation, however, to achieve the most optimal results.
Other Considerations For Bathroom Remodeling Projects In 2021
Your bathroom remodel should reflect your specific needs and preferences. It is not always best to follow trends, particularly those that may become outdated after a few years.
However, there are some bathroom remodeling ideas for 2021 that are here to stay and can add value and appeal to your bathroom and home. Outlined below are the best bathroom remodeling considerations for your bathroom remodeling project this year.
Choosing a color scheme is one of the biggest decisions homeowners have to make during a bathroom remodeling. There are numerous color combinations that could work well. However, we recommend choosing a vibrant and warm color scheme.
For example, adding off-white floors and wall tiles that have a bright hue can be a great color option for 2021. This adds life to your bathroom, which can then add vibrancy to the start and finish of your day. Finding stain-resistant and durable paint is also important.
Homeowners are often presented with a range of flooring options by their contractor during a remodeling project. We recommend considering radiant-heated floors for your bathroom. Of course, you will pay more for the higher quality floors, but you can make a lot of your investment back in resale value.
The comfort level of heated bathroom floors are also a unique benefit. Marble floors make for a great option for upscale bathroom remodeling projects.
The days of traditional vanities are over. Instead, consider opting for floating vanities, which are mounted to the wall rather than supported by the ground.
Another 2021 bathroom remodeling trend that should remain for years to come is double sinks, especially if your bathroom is shared by two or more people. Adding a marble vanity is also a great way to include an elegant design and material that remains in good condition for decades.
Choosing Your Lighting
Lighting your bathroom in an ideal manner is not always as simple as homeowners anticipate. Your bathroom remodeling contractor may recommend more bold lighting choices, such as a bathroom chandelier or pendants. Natural lighting can also make your bathroom feel more cozy and warm.
Ideal natural lighting can be accomplished through new window installation and strategic planning. Natural bathroom lighting (along with modern and bold fixtures) can increase your home’s overall value and appeal, making it easier to sell quickly and for the optimal amount.
Adding Natural Elements
A trend that gained traction over a decade ago and continues to grow in popularity in 2021 is adding natural elements to your bathroom and home. By placing plants in your bathroom, you can add a more modern decor style and increase the air quality.
Your contractor should be able to walk you through the various options for adding plants to your bathroom in a way that adds aesthetic appeal and maximizes the natural benefits of the plants and other natural elements you choose to implement.
Installing A Jacuzzi Tub
More people are working from home than ever before. Subsequently, the ability to have a part of your home that is strictly for relaxation and letting go of the stress from the long workday is more valuable. Even for those who still go to a place of work, being able to return to a jacuzzi tub and a glass of wine is invaluable.
A large jacuzzi-style soaking tub is also beginning to trend in bathroom design as well. Some designers are even placing the tub in the center of the bathroom. This is intriguing in both a practical and design sense.
Increasing Storage Space
The ability to store towels, bathroom supplies, decor items, etc., is more valuable in 2021 as well. Many homeowners fear adding too much storage in their bathroom, but you can make storage look great with beautifully crafted cabinets and bathroom closets.
This also allows you to do a better job of keeping your bathroom space less cluttered and makes it easier to get ready in the mornings and wind down in the afternoons.
