Whether it’s a geometric octagon, a square, or an arabesque shape, unique shaped tile is a bathroom trend that is sure to wow. These unique tile shapes can add the movement that a bathroom with a modern focus needs, while octagonal tiles or more geometric focused tiles bring structure to the overall design of a bathroom. These tiles are primarily used on shower floors or walls, but they can also be utilized in shower niches or accent patterns in tile showers.
White and gray have been top choices for several years, and while they are timeless options, bold patterns are one of the top bathroom trends for 2021. Whether it’s an accent wall painted with your own pattern, wallpaper, or a vanity in a unique style, a bold pattern could be just the thing your home needs this year. Spice things up with your personality, and you’ll love the way you feel personally connected to your design choices and your home!
With the ability to make a bathroom look much larger, floor to ceiling tile is one trend that proves it’s a solid choice for any space. While smaller tiles from the floor to the ceiling in a shower will add depth and detail to a bathroom that brings your eye to the height of the space, larger tiles will introduce dimension and elegance. Light-colored tiles with contrasting dark grout make this trend stand out, or tile and grout in a similar color will make a bathroom look clean and composed.
Contrasts have been making their way up the trend ladder for several years. But one of the top trends for 2021 when it comes to bathrooms are black accents. These can be black metal accents like light fixtures, plumbing fixtures, or cabinet pulls, or they can be the center of attention. Black vanities, black tile, and black grout are all accent options for bathrooms that are top of mind for trends.
When it comes to wallpaper, it’s typically loved or hated by most – there's not a lot of gray area. But as one of this year’s top bathroom trends, there’s no reason not to love it! Available in hundreds of styles, designs, and colors, wallpaper can take your bathroom from plain to chic and trendy. Choose one wall to accent or fill the bathroom with it, and you’ll see your bathroom come to life right in front of your eyes.
Adding comfort and elegance to a bathroom, a large soaking tub is not only beautiful but functional. Slip into a warm bath at the end of a long day, and allow all your worries to be washed away while you appreciate all the comforts of this new trend. You can situate a tub at the end of your bathroom near a window or in the middle of the room to make it the focus of the space. The design is completely up to you! The best part about large soaking tubs is that they are incredibly timeless. Who doesn’t love a beautiful, comforting soaking tub in their home?
