Thinking about undertaking a bathroom renovation in the next year? Once you’ve decided on the functionality you’d like for your new space, it’s time for the fun part – deciding on style!
With the thousands and thousands of options out there, choosing the right look can be a little overwhelming. Helping homeowners make these hard decisions is exactly what the design experts at Columbus Bath Design love to do. Give us a call and we’ll help you make the right choices.
It’s natural to want our bathrooms to be luxurious, smart, and a private retreat where we can relax and find a few quiet moments for ourselves. If you are thinking of undertaking a bathroom design in the next year, pay attention to these five trends to help you create a fresh and modern look.
Cleaning in luxury
The most important thing to consider when transforming an interior space into a luxury experience that enhances satisfaction is the driving trend for 2021. The bathroom is one of the spaces we use most frequently, so any update or renovation should focus on a seamless experience.
Given the past year and the uncertainty ahead, making sure your bathroom delivers a spa-like atmosphere is the most important consideration. You want to create a relaxing space, allowing you to linger for just a bit longer.
Biophilia, or integrating natural elements into the design, is one of the biggest recent trends and is only gaining in popularity. The goal is to create a rich, sensory connection with nature. Such a design reduces stress and increases creativity.
By adding a luxurious shower and shower head, you can create an indulgent experience that will help you relax and improve your outlook.
Contemporary style has moved beyond the days of polished ceramic that is clinically white. Instead, designers are recommending that people become more confident in choosing busy and bold design schemes for both bathrooms and powder rooms.
As mentioned above, the 2021 design will be marked by biophilia, the bringing of the outside in. A new design will focus on creating spa-like bathroom sanctuaries with bold murals and fixtures that combine vintage stylings with modernity. Expect to continue seeing Victorian roll-top baths, but with a backdrop of modern, sleek alcoves integrated with bright tiles and incorporating the latest tech.
While designers in the past concentrated on a single, cohesive look, the trend these days is to match bold colors and patterns to create a unique look.
Keep the mood minimalist
Clinical white porcelain may be a trend of the past, but that’s not to say that minimalist doesn’t remain in style. The difference is that today’s minimalist bathrooms are designed to relax, in part by getting rid of the sterile background.
While bathrooms of recent years may have been a maximalist mess, with many different features competing for attention, the new trend is to dispense with the clutter. Choose wisely the things you need to have out on the counter and work to reduce the crowded feeling. If you choose a pattern, keep it to a minimum and as simple as possible.
When it comes to fixtures, consider a pedestal or wall-mounted sink instead of a bulky vanity, and put a clear glass door on your shower rather than a curtain. Finish the look with reflective surfaces like large scale glossy ceramic tiles.
Bold basins and consoles
One of the hardest design decisions when it comes to bathrooms is choosing the sink. Since it’s a centerpiece of the room, it needs to have the right balance of functionality, aesthetics, and ease of installation, not to mention budget.
With all of the choices available out there, it can be difficult to refine your vision. Expect to see everything from riffs on classic white ceramic to brightly colored decorative basins. You could even have classic pastels or add gold rims.
Beyond color and shape, you’ll also have to choose from a wide variety of materials. You’ll find sinks made from concrete, glass, minerals, and pressurized surfaces. Whether going for a bold look or keeping things minimalist, there is a perfect design out there for you.
Not even the bathroom can escape advances in technology. Smart devices making home automation commonplace is no longer a sci-fi dream. It’s now commonly available, and more useful than you might expect.
In 2021 look for such things as de-misting mirrors, LED temperature displays, and integrated charging and USB ports built into mirrors and fixtures. Don’t be afraid to get smart!
