As we head into the second month of the year, we are still hunting around for the top trends that will shape homes in 2021 and well into 2022. In some rooms, the overall scenario seems to present itself in a clear manner. In other spaces, the general direction of trends takes a more ‘wait and watch’ approach with bathrooms seemingly falling in the latter category this time around. For a few years now, home bathrooms are going down the route of spa-inspired settings where luxury is becoming more and more essential. It is all about relaxation, rest and rejuvenation while ensuring that you feel comfortable (if not pampered) all the time.
This common theme is set to continue once again with the bets bathrooms embracing lavish finishes, a dash of energy, some natural goodness and pattern that feels understated. There is something in here for everyone and the search for a brighter bathroom finds a solution with spaces that are white, easy-on-the-eyes and filled with ample natural light. Cutting across styles and sizes, this is a look at the top bathroom design trends for the year ahead.
Soak in Tropical Luxury
It might not be one of the first styles you turn o in the modern bathroom, but tropical is going to be more popular than ever before in 2021. You can combine splashes of tropical brilliance with styles like modern, Scandinavian and coastal with ease or go all the way with the vibrant tropical look itself. It is easy to bring a bit of tropical touch to the neutral bathroom in white with indoor plants, leafy motifs that are not too overpowering and a hint of woodsy elegance brought in by the vanity. Smart natural lighting and a bit of beachy blue vibe should complete your dream tropical bathroom…
Marble Makes it Special!
It is easy to fall in love with a bathroom that is draped in marble – the sheer opulence of such a space sweeps you off of your feet almost instantly. Be it that classic Calcutta Marble in white r a marble backsplash in black just above the vanity in the bathroom, you just cannot go wrong with marble in the spa-inspired bathroom. Marble finishes cut across styles with ease and with metallic accents in brass the impact of marble is only amplified. Be it marble floors, marble shower walls or just a tiny bit of marble goodness brought in by the vanity countertop, if you want luxury, this is the stone for 2021 in the bathrooms.
Pattern with Modernity
We went through a little trend in between when bathrooms moved away from being completely neutral spaces and started embracing much more colorful patterns inspired by a midcentury modern look. But that trend now once again is on its way out with bathrooms of the day finding pattern in the form of simpler geometric prints and hexagonal tiles that feel much more understated. Use tiles to add this pattern to the bathroom instead of wallpaper and simple, straight lines are preferred over much more ornate designs. Time to turn down the overload of pattern!
A Dash of Black Thrown into the Mix
Yes, blue is as popular as ever in the bathroom and will continue to be so. But if you are looking for something different in the bathroom that blends an air of luxury with sophistication, then black accents and finishes come to your rescue. Considering the extensive way in which white is used in modern bathrooms along with other light colors and pastel hues, it makes sense to use black in order to anchor the space and give it a more refined appeal. Time to bring black back into the bathroom this season!
