The Top Bathroom Trends Of 2021

Updated: Nov 17, 2023

With every new year comes the urge to reboot—and we can guarantee that this feeling will only be magnified when 2021 officially comes to a close. There’s no doubt that the bathroom is the ideal space to begin your design refresh; after all, it’s where all of your self-care rituals take place, and it should be designed with tranquillity at top of mind. It should be a place where you love to spend time, whether you’re simply brushing your teeth or soaking in the tub with a glass of wine and a favourite book.

So if you’re in the mood to give your bathroom a face-lift, look no further and get inspired by these top bathroom design trends for 2021.

Floating Vanity Units

Although the crisp lines of floating vanities typically lean contemporary, the space-saving storage solution has more customization options than ever before, with sinks, faucets, and hardware to fit any style. Wall-mount bathroom vanities come in an array of configurations, from a complete unit with a countertop, sink and storage base—like a freestanding vanity without the legs—to partial sets and entirely separate pieces. A wall-hung vanity is clean and airy and doesn’t seem like a big heavy box on the floor.

Warm Colours & Tones

The top colors for 2021 are vibrant and warm, an ideal mix for the room that both starts and ends your day. The warm, wooden earthy tones ensures that white becomes a clean highlight instead of a chilly presence. Warm tones are easy to work with and have a timeless appeal. They also work well with furniture which has a wood effect or white finish – perfect for traditional or country bathrooms. For a more modern touch, combine neutral tones with oak or dark wood furniture.

Scandinavian Design

When it comes to decorating trends that will endure the test of time, the Scandinavian aesthetic is an ever-popular favorite for 2021. Simplicity, utility, and beauty are all hallmarks of the look that serve up clean lines often punctuated by natural materials, neutral colors, and personal accents. You can pack a lot of style into a small bathroom, including a stunning accent wall. The warm tones of wood in a bathroom create a restful oasis.

Freestanding Bathtubs

The freestanding bathtub is without doubt one of the biggest trends of 2021. Today, this variety of tub has become the desired bathroom basin for all types of home styles, from modern to farmhouse to minimalist. Not only is it ideal for relaxing but the freestanding tub will be the focal point of your bathroom. Luxurious, lavish and perfect for any modern bathroom.

Illuminated Mirrors

One of the most modern trends of 2021 is illuminated bathroom mirrors. This embedded feature offers ambient lighting without added glare or reflections on the mirror and can double as a nightlight when dimmed. These simple shapes with eye-catching lighting can be decorative as well as functional, too. A backlit mirror creates a glowing effect on the wall giving the illusion of a floating mirror. This effect can be used to create a focal point or highlight textured wall surfaces behind the fixture.
