In recent times, the architecture design that’s commonly found in many homes is geared towards revisions of the classic home, industrial, and modern minimalist mixed with a farmhouse kind of vibe. The design concepts are making their way not just in a home’s living area, but also in aesthetically neglected parts of the home like the bathroom. That’s perhaps how you made it here today.
If you’re looking at your bathroom right now and it doesn’t spark joy in your household, that’s a telling sign your bathroom may need to undergo a renovation. Your bathroom should be a place where you’ll also love being inside as it looks pleasing, clean, and welcoming.
These are some of the bathroom renovation trends that are sure to be a hit this 2021:
- Frameless Glass Shower Doors
Frameless glass shower doors are the perfect epitome of a minimalist, sleek, and elegant design. When you say frameless, this means the glass itself doesn’t have metal hardware and framing. Especially when the glass is newly cleaned, it looks great in any kind of design theme you’re going after.
If you’re still on the fence about whether you should opt for a frameless glass shower door, here are some of the reasons to convince you that it’s a good choice:
- It’s fully customizable, so it fits precisely the size of your bathroom;
- It brings more open space, which is great for smaller bathrooms to convey a more open and airier feel;
- It’s corrosion-free since there isn’t any metal framing;
- It allows the natural flow of light, especially if you also have a window in your bathroom;
- It’s easy to maintain and clean.
If you’re on a budget, glass may seem expensive. But if you take the time to research through your options of reputable suppliers that aren’t expensive, you’re sure to find one in your area as well. For instance, GCS Glass has developed one of the most affordable glass companies in Denver, if you’re around that area.
- Statement Bathroom Lighting
Even if what you have is a small bathroom, there are still many ways for you to add a statement piece to the space. For 2021, luxury, statement bathroom lighting is taking center stage. This means rather than settling for the usual, plain bathroom lights, you can now opt for statement lighting which has the most impact. Think chandeliers, drum pendants, and even giant floor lamps.
Don’t be afraid to take the unusual route with your lighting. Also, be sure to stay on the safe side by having your chosen lighting approved by your electrician.
- Floating Vanities
Floating vanities refer to those vanities stuck to the wall rather than on the floor. This is another space-saving solution, which leads towards a more minimalist and contemporary look. Another good thing about floating vanities is it’s quite easy to personalize.
You can either go for floating vanities which are already a complete set, or just the cabinet itself and it’s your call to personalize the hardware, sinks, and faucets. But if you’re looking to add more air and light into your bathroom, a wall-hung vanity is a good way to achieve that look.
- Floral Walls
Do you have plain walls in your bathroom right now? You may want to consider upgrading it with wallpaper. In keeping with the current trend of households bringing in the outdoors, plants aren’t the only thing that’s getting in demand. A floral or tropical-print wallpaper in the bathroom is also another popular design element.
If you’re not adventurous enough to have your whole four walls of your bathroom clad in wallpaper, you can always start small with just one wall. Take the time to choose what wallpaper you fancy. You don’t need to go crazy on the floral or tropical prints as there are also options for more subdued, minimalistic ones, which can still make your bathroom look cohesive with the rest of your home.
- Back-Lit Mirrors
Among all areas in your bathroom that you want to be well-lit, the vanity should be a priority. This is where you see yourself in the mirror to ensure your look and makeup are fine. Apart from your statement lights, a design trend for 2021 is to have back-lit mirrors. As its name implies, the light frames the mirror, but is seen and evident from the back. Usually, the light would be in warmer yellow tones of LED for the maximum elegant and polished effect.
The bathroom trends above aren’t just stylish, but they’re also practical. When successfully incorporated, you can transform your bathroom into a retreat. Being that it’s one of the areas in the home with the most foot traffic, it’s not surprising that it’ll also age quite fast.
If it’s been a long time since you’ve made any changes to your bathroom, you might want to consider the bathroom renovation as your project for this year. It’s up to you to choose which among the trends above you’d like to have or what design elements suit the overall theme you have in your entire home.
