- 15 Bathroom trends to take advantage of
This trend for bathrooms is both old and new – people have been using designer cabinets and enclosed toilets for years, and they certainly have their advantages. They provide a layer of privacy for those sharing bathrooms and also make small spaces feel more spacious. This can be done by relocating a toilet and diverting the necessary sanitary facilities need a lot of expertise, but the transformation will certainly be worth it.
2. Rain shower heads
Showering under a torrent of rain is a true luxury experience that many homeowners crave. Rerouting the plumbing is one of the best and most thorough ways to install a rain showerhead, but it’s not the only one. Another option is to use an overhead shower arm to get the same effect at a fraction of the cost. Either way, you’ll feel that calming rainfall in no time.
3. Powder chambers
People who don’t have a powder room in their home may be interested in adding one. While a full bath is optimal, there are plenty of spaces where a half bath can be just what a client needs, especially if they have frequent guests. Powder rooms can offer the convenience of a full bathroom with an even more concentrated burst of personal design.
4. Heated floors
Heated floors may not always have plumbing, but they can interact with many plumbing to create a luxurious experience. Some people even take it a step further with towel warmers and other heaters to increase the comfort level.
5. Asymmetrical bathtubs
Many people take the opportunity to replace their old bathtub with more luxurious and modern asymmetrical models. Many modern baths contain all kinds of water pipes, such as overflow areas, jacuzzi jets, and detachable shower heads.
6. Freestanding bathtubs
While the usefulness of a shower and bath combination cannot be overemphasized, some people would prefer it a classic freestanding bath in addition to an elegant and spacious shower. This is a change that will require extensive plumbing support, but it can certainly be worth it for the luxury and versatility this combination offers.
7. Natural materials
Natural materials are making a comeback all over the home, and the bathroom is no different. Many homeowners trade heavy, traditional fixtures for simpler, more minimal, and natural items. Think of hardwood, bamboo and even metals that patina beautifully, such as copper. While flavors may differ, this is definitely a trend to consider.
8. Bowl sinks
Bowl sinks have been in style for a while. The appeal of a minimal, elegant sink that offers even more room for vanity and counter space appeals to many homeowners, and for good reason. While each sink has the potential for a unique design, it often requires plumbing changes and adjustments.
9. Floating Vanities
Floating vanities have been taking the bathroom scene by storm of late. They offer the extra allure of a minimal, sleek design. Where the plumbing usually comes in is the floating element – the most important part. The ability to float a vanity while still serving its purpose is a valuable skill to have.
10. Smart toilets
Another trend that doesn’t seem to be disappearing any time soon is the smart toilet. These devices include things like adjustable bidets, sound systems, automatic lids, and even night lights, along with other amenities, to enhance the bathroom experience. By offering smart toilet integration, sanitary companies can become much more marketable.
11. Tiles with a larger size
There was a time when small tiles in bathrooms were all the rage. That is no longer the case, at least for the foreseeable future. Large-format tile and slab-style wall coverings are gaining a lot of attention from both residential and commercial toilet owners. In addition to the eye-catching visuals, metro and other large tiles reduce grout lines and make cleaning easier.
12. Vanity mirrors with backlight
Adding backlighting to new vanity mirrors is a practical and visually striking addition to any bathroom. The backlighting creates a pleasant atmosphere, eliminating the need for a night light and reducing the risk of slipping and falling. It is also a distinctive and soothing visual element that reduces the amount of glare on the mirror from overhead lights.
13. Warm color choices
Where is it written that bathrooms should be painted in sterile shades of white, cream and eggshell? One of the most striking trends in bathroom renovations for 2021 and beyond is warm colors. Bathrooms should welcome the user and make the space a pleasure to use, and a great way to do that is to think beyond the classic colors and go for something bolder. Make sure to choose a hardwearing, mildew resistant product during color selection.
14. Quartz countertops
Quartz is one of the hardest materials naturally occurring around the world. It’s also non-porous and pulls out products that could permanently stain some other common countertop materials. Quartz slabs also offer style and sophistication without many grout lines or seams. This aids in tidying up and ensures smooth surfaces throughout the space. If you choose a warmer, slightly darker color for the walls, consider a lighter colored countertop material to nicely offset the look.
Bathroom trends to take advantage of
Each plumbing and construction company is unique and adapts to the needs most often communicated by the customer base. Either way, it’s always a good idea to keep up to date with trends that can make a business stand out while providing quality service and craftsmanship.
