Sure, your bathroom is a place of function and convenience, but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring, or dingy. In fact, that’s all the more reason to have a little fun with the space and make it something a little more special. Here are some ideas for bathroom design trends for 2021 and beyond.
Bathroom Design Trends For 2021
Upgrade your lighting
There are few things more frustrating than doing your makeup in the bathroom mirror, and looking great, only to look in a different mirror while you are out and realising the colours look totally different.
Choose a bulb that is going to brighten the room, such as one of these G9 bulbs and find a bathroom light fitting that is a little more interesting than the basic hanging bulb.
Perhaps consider spotlights in the ceiling, or a chandelier style light, and don’t shy away from lights around the mirror too.
Who said bathrooms have to be all white?!
Painting your radiator a bright pop of colour can make a fun statement and show off your personality, or why not use some peelable vinyl on your bath panel or tiles to create a real ‘wow’ moment that wouldn’t look out of place in an interiors magazine, without the commitment of a new bathroom suite.
You can peel it off and swap it out when your tastes change, and it won’t leave a lasting mark.
If you’re not feeling quite as brave, you could add some colour using the towels, bath mat and accessories.
Go for a spa vibe in your bathroom
On the other end of the spectrum, why not make your bathroom feel like a spa.
Get rid of any clutter and decant your bath products into something a little more luxe. Invest in super soft, white Egyptian cotton towels and plenty of candles – considering the scent of relaxation as well as giving a spa-like ambience.
Add some plants, and minimalist art pieces to finish off the look.
Consider a shabby chic bathroom design
There is something about a bathroom that really lends itself to a shabby chic or farmhouse style vibe.
This is a great look on a budget as you can do lots of upcycling to create storage, and even use an old, weathered ladder (treated of course!) as a practical piece of decor.
Lean towards greys and soft pinks, and a chalk-paint finish, and add some delicate, decorative accessories from charity shops to complete it.
Even if your bathroom is often used by children who like to splash around, that doesn’t mean you can’t make it look lovely the rest of the time.
Invest in some good storage to hide the toys and half-empty bottles of shampoo, and then work on your blank canvas to create a bathroom that you can really relax in.
Remember, you don’t have to spend a fortune on a brand new suite; there is so much you can do with a lick of paint and a few accessories.
