Don't believe us? Then keep reading for the top five 2021 bathroom remodeling trends that can also help you save money.
1. Terrazzo Tiling
If you like the look of marble but can't afford it, terrazzo is an excellent alternative. Terrazzo is the Italian word for "terrace." That's because terrazzo material was first used to pave outdoor patios and verandas.
Traditional terrazzo is made from concrete and marble. This combination makes this material both beautiful and highly durable, perfect for high-traffic spaces like the bathroom.
Manufacturers can also turn terrazzo into tiling, which is a big trend for the bathroom in 2021. Tile floors, walls, showers, and even countertop with terrazzo for a bespoke and elegant look.
2. Bold Tiling
Subway tiles are the go-to for bathroom remodels. But, this year, another hot tiling trend is to go-bold. You can do that by choosing a bold tile color, arranging tiles in a creative pattern, or both!
Neutral hues are trending for the bathroom this year. Add a splash of color with pale blue, earthy yellow, or deep green tiles in the shower. You could even create a rainbow of various neutral tiles for a look that's 100% unique to you.
Think outside the box when it comes to tiling placement. Botanical patterns, like honeycomb-inspired designs, are all the rage for home bathrooms right now. Or you could go with a modern look and arrange tiles in geometric patterns.
Better yet, mix two trends in one. Install terrazzo tile in a bold pattern for an organic, relaxing look and feel.
The best thing about this trend? You can use affordable tiles and still make your bathroom look truly spectacular.
3. Smart Toilets
We all spend a lot of time in the bathroom. Why not make the experience enjoyable? That's the idea behind this next trend: smart toilets.
Intelligent toilets are the latest venture into automated tech for the home. You can find toilets equipped with speakers, lights, and even TVs. Heated seats, deodorizers, foot warmers, and automatic seat openers are also common smart toilet features.
More importantly, the latest intelligent toilets are more energy and water efficient than traditional toilets. These toilets might be an investment. But many owners say it's worth it, since you can save money on water and energy in the long run.
Check out smart toilets from brands like Kohler and Moen. They can help bring your bathroom in the year 2021 and beyond.
4. Heated Floors
If you hate getting out of the shower and stepping on cold tiles, you're going to love this next trend. Underfloor heating will keep your toes toasty and also serve as your bathroom's warming system.
Underfloor heating systems come in two forms: electric or water-based. Because heat rises, installing a heated floor can eliminate the need for traditional types of heating. That's why the cost of heated floors is so worth it.
Another way to cut costs on heated flooring for your bathroom is to choose an electric-based heating system. Electric heaters are about half to a third of the price of underfloor water (hydronic) heaters.
Plus, if you're planning to remodel your bathroom floor, much of the labor costs are already covered. The same is true if you're planning to install a new heater for your bathroom.
5. Standalone Tubs, Sinks, and Showers
Standalone tubs, sinks, and showers are the picture of bathroom luxury. The good news is you can incorporate these trends affordably. This trend is also ideal for small spaces.
Standalone tubs are a classic. Yes, a larger claw-footed tub will require some space. But some standalone bathtubs these days are designed with smaller bathrooms in mind.
Replace your old, bulky vanity with a minimalistic and elegant pedestal sink. The incredible thing about standalone sinks is that they can be far more affordable than installing a new sink and vanity unit.
Another 2021 bathroom trend is the open shower. Open showers save space, but they're also perfect for larger bathrooms with minimalist aesthetics. If you're dead-set on incorporating a shower and a tub in your bathroom makeover, open showers can provide more space to do just that.
