Your bathroom should be a restful sanctuary. But hygiene and cleanliness are key preoccupations after the year we’ve all had. Bathrooms are also important since they are where most of us aim to get each day off to a good start. Equally, they’re where we unwind in the evening.
So easy-to-clean surfaces are likely to stay vital – but the good news is that you don’t have to sacrifice style to be practical.
Here are some of the other likely bathroom trends for 2021:
Expect a shift to larger tiles
There could well be a shift away from mosaic-style to larger tiles, with fewer grout lines, making them easier to clean. So these are especially good for areas such as showers.
Some other things you can expect
Other popular trends in 2021 are set to include more back-lit medicine cupboards and mirrors, deep soaking tubs to help relaxation in case these stressful times continue, and warm, vibrant shades. Also set to be popular are durable paints which stay hygienic for longer, again given the circumstances.
At the same time, we may well see more people seeking the comfort of underfloor heating, as well as the warm tones of tiles which look like wood.
The rise and rise of quartz countertops
A hard and durable natural material, quartz resists stains and scratching and is generally low-maintenance. That’s partly because it has few seams, and sleek profiles. So it’s hardly surprising that in one industry trends report, 74% of designers chose this stone as the top countertop material for bathrooms. Equally, as a non-porous substance, quartz doesn’t harbour nasty bacteria. (And clearly that’s even more important in an environment that’s likely to be damp.)
Lighter and warmer colours are set to become more popular for quartz worktops, as well. So if you didn’t think quartz belonged in the bathroom, think again!
