Top Bathroom Trends In 2021

Mar 31, 2021 | Trends

Bathrooms are often the one place in our home we can retreat to for a bit of relaxation and time for ourselves. So why not take the time to redecorate, and turn it into a space you love being in! We’ve curated some of the top trending ideas for bathroom designs and decor in 2021, to start that makeover you’ve been waiting for.

Spa-Like Bathrooms

The spa experience can be easily achieved at home with a few simple touches. Lighting is one of the best ways to create an atmosphere of relaxation in your bathroom, especially with the convenience of lightbulbs that switch between warmer and cooler tones at a flick of a switch.  Candles are also a great way to add to the atmosphere while delighting your olfactory senses with vanilla, pine, or your choice of sweet and fruity scents.

Rain showers are also another great option to make you feel like you’re staying in a fancy hotel, in your very own home. However, if you don’t feel like going through the trouble, installing a shower head with a more intense flow of water should do the trick as well. You could also treat yourself to a couple of extra accessories, like a bathtub tray to hold your glass of wine and a good book, or a towel warmer to keep your towels nice and toasty for when you’re done with your shower or bath.

Weaving In Elements Of Nature

Natural materials and nature-inspired looks have been trending in bathroom decor.
Using teak, bamboo, and stones, are just some of the ways to weave natural elements into your bathroom. Bathmats that incorporate stones and hemp act as a natural non-slip surface, and also soak up excess moisture in your bathroom. Bamboo furniture and shelves are a wonderfully durable, waterproof, and long-lasting material for your bathroom as well.

Small low-maintenance potted plants are great for the bathroom as well, just be sure to choose plants that survive well in humid environments! And if natural materials or plants aren’t your thing, using warm earth tones like greens, browns, and yellows, do wonders for making you feel like you’re taking a bath or shower in the great outdoors!

Black & Gold Bathrooms For A Luxe Feel

For those looking for a touch of luxury, nothing screams opulence and grandeur more than the stunning combination of black and gold. This latest bathroom trend has gorgeous golden-edged bathroom accessories paired with black tiles or wall paint.

For a bit more texture, black and white marbled tiles also go beautifully with gold accessories like taps, mirrors and other smaller accessories. Luxury is entirely in the details, so mix and match solid dark grey refillable shampoo bottles with bursts of colour, in the form of colorful soaps or small potted plants.

Whimsical Wall Prints

For those who love a bit of whimsy in their lives, wall prints are a great way to express your personality. One of the biggest trends are bright, cheerful prints that include botanicals, birds of paradise, or geometrical prints. They’re not for the faint of heart, but definitely turn your bathroom into a design focal point all on its own.

Another great trend is personalising your bathroom with quirky and humorous quotes, or fun wall art. Match them with simple and minimalist accessories, and they’ll put a smile on the face of anyone who walks in!

This is the year where the bathroom becomes a place to let your creativity go wild, so take advantage of the latest trends and get inspired!
