Updated: Feb 5, 2021

You heard it right, 2021 trends are finally here! The newest textures, patterns, prints, finishes, and styles of all sorts are here for the coming year. This round-up contains the hottest designs that can give you the right type of inspiration you didn’t even know you needed. Whether you are building a new home or planning a renovation, the list is sure to spark some creativity.




TREND #1. BLACK IS THE NEW GREY


Grey may have been one of the most popular styles in previous year bathroom remodeling projects, however, that’s all about to change. We’re moving on to boulder, darker styles this season. Grey is great, but black is better!


That’s right, darker tones, specifically black, are here. We saw so many grey bathrooms this past year, but expect to see an increase in black bathrooms. This trend is most popular in light fixtures, vanities, mirrors, and other fixtures, especially with matte finishes!

TREND #2. BATHROOMS OF THE FUTURE


In 2021, bathrooms will see smart showers, mini-fridges, and automatic sinks. Another more common trend is the built-in bluetooth speaker system. Now you can easily jam out or wind down with the sounds of your shower. Voice-activated features for lighting and temperature, smart mirrors that talk to you, and increased TV installments are just a few of the other fun trends we’ve seen, but the possibilities are endless. Modern-day bathrooms are transforming into personalized day spas, and these technologies make the experience more relaxing and convenient than ever before.


TREND #3. BRASS & GOLD WITH A VINTAGE COMEBACK


Gold fixtures are back and better than ever! Shades of brass and gold are taking over sinks, toilets, and basically anything and everything in your bathroom this year. Erase the memories of your Grandparent’s bathroom brass faucet, because this lovely new warm toned gold plumbing fixtures will become your new go-to, adding just the right amount of depth, dimension, and luxury feels to any space.


Homeowners love the change to warmer accents with the brass/gold toned bathroom fixtures versus the traditional shiny polished chrome which conveys a more cool, modern, and sleek feel.

TREND #4. INDUSTRIAL STYLED SINKS & VANITIES


While this style may not be for everyone, it’s very current and you should expect to see an increase in popularity for this type of design with the coming year! With all the metal finish possibilities, wooden accents, and funky tile patterns, it only makes sense that the industrial vanity is in. Its sleek and modern look fits in perfectly with this edgy, yet classy remodeling trend.


TREND #5. TILE PATTERNS & SHAPES THAT YOU WILL LOVE


We have already seen how technology is allowing manufacturers to create all sorts of designs using basic tiles, but now they are going beyond the colors and graphics to change the traditional tile shape into something more interesting.


We are seeing a resurgence of the once beloved tiles of decades past, plus a few new designs. No longer are we content with just a subway tile or a large format tile on the wall. We have lots of tile shapes to choose from once again. So, look for new and improved hexagon, arabesque, diamond, Moroccan fish scales, or chevron patterns in new colors & textures.
