Bathroom Design Trends

Thanks to COVID-19, cleanliness and easy-to-clean designs are more important than ever. Thankfully, bathroom design trends incorporate both these attributes without sacrificing style. Below, you’ll discover several of the hottest bathroom trends for the upcoming year. 

Floating Vanities

Floating vanities offer a lot of customization in the bathroom. Hung on the wall rather than sitting directly on the floor, floating vanities can be hung higher or lower, and in any configuration that suits the area and your preferences. Further, because they aren’t sitting on the floor, it’s easier to keep the bathroom floor clean, too. 

Large Wall Tiles

Tiny mosaic tiles take a backseat to their larger counterparts this coming year. Large-format wall tiles make a big statement with fewer grout lines, which means they are easier to clean. Also trending in bathrooms is subway tiles in various sizes and stacked linear tiles for their elegant, minimalist appearance. 

Backlit Medicine Cabinets and Mirrors

Most people replace the mirror when remodeling a bathroom, and many are choosing backlit models these days. Backlit medicine cabinets and mirrors create a floating effect on the wall that can be the focal point of the room. Also, the halo-like glow can be used as ambient lighting or a nightlight when dimmed. 

Soaking Tubs

Being homebound as the pandemic continues has only made people seek rest and relaxation more than ever before. As such, soaking tubs are more popular than in the past, with clawfoot and traditional tub types taking a backseat. The nice thing about these flat-bottom tubs is they work in just about any bathroom design motif, especially when bought in white. 

Durable Paints in Warm Colors

With so much cleaning and disinfecting going on, it stands to reason that any paint you choose, especially for the bathroom, should be able to withstand the demands of pandemic-driven cleaning. In addition, it should be able to resist mold and mildew growth, too. 

Today’s bathroom paints do all that and more, because they come in a variety of finishes, allowing homeowners to get the durability they need without having to sacrifice the finish they want. 

Trending colors are warm and vibrant, so let your personality shine!

Quartz Countertops

Another attractive and durable addition is the quartz countertop. Because quartz is non-porous – meaning it doesn’t absorb anything – it’s the perfect material for the constant cleaning that is the new normal. The nice thing about quartz countertops is they don’t have any seam lines, which makes them virtually maintenance-free. 

Smart Toilets

One of the most-hated things about toilets is how gross they are to clean. In a post-pandemic household, however, smart toilets make cleaning the toilet a breeze. With clean lines, flat surfaces, and a host of features that do the cleaning for you, the toilet is no longer the eyesore or nuisance it used to be.
