Bathroom Trends for 2021

The new year has started and if like the rest of the UK, you’re spending all your time at home, you may be looking for ways to spruce up your interior décor. So to help you breathe new life back into your bathroom, here are our predicted interior design trends for 2021.
If your bathroom design is currently lacklustre and you’re looking to add a touch of drama and class to the space, you may want to consider the Neoteric trend. Bold, dramatic and inviting, it pairs contemporary features with hints of neo-classical design that make it a timeless look.

Ideal for small and larger spaces alike, you can choose moody greens and blues, large patterns and brushed brass brassware to create that feeling of opulence. Large format patterned wallpaper in smaller rooms helps to give the illusion of space and you can complete the look by painting the ceiling, installing some clever lighting solutions and displaying a statement mirror.
Detailing and texture is key to achieving the Neoteric Class feel, which you can accomplish through key furniture, countertop and ceramic basin choices. If you’re looking for a luxurious bathroom experience, Neoteric Class could be the trend for you.
For a more subtle but fresh and elegant design consider The New Nordic look. This new approach to the popular Scandinavian style allows you to experiment with shapes, colour and patterns to create an engaging bathroom experience. By using a light colour palette and utilising mature pastel colours, soft whites, clean lines and geometric patterns, you can create a stunning, bright feel. By incorporating wood grains and textured materials you can add a welcoming warmth to the room which can be enhanced by a choice of complementing brassware finishes from contemporary black to a striking brushed brass.

The New Nordic trend is synonymous with simplicity, clean lines and textures. Break the traditional format of aligning the bathroom furniture, basin and mirror and be creative. Consider using statement pendant lighting and accessories to balance out an asymmetric furniture, basin and mirror set up instead.
Continuing the long-standing popularity of the industrial trend, in 2021 ‘engineered chic’ will go one step further. Polished concrete, natural oak and white marble combinations has made the trend a recent evolution of the industrial style. If you’re lacking in space in the bathroom, use wall hung furniture to create the illusion of space. You can also use key materials such as wood finishes, utilising the natural linear properties of the grain on a wall to give the illusion of height or width.

Be mindful that engineered chic is usually associated with minimalism, so try to keep surfaces clear by choosing clever storage solutions in furniture or cabinets. Keep an eye on the detail by hiding away pipework within the walls and choose well-designed discreet accessories for extra support.
Lighting can be used to further enhance the atmosphere of functionality of the room and the engineered chic trend lends itself to using furniture and accessories that incorporate innovative technology that enhance the bathroom experience.
But if you’re missing the outdoors and want to bring an essence of nature into your bathroom space, choose a more ‘grounded’ style. Feel more connected to the outdoors with this nature inspired colour palette by pairing mid-light tone wood finishes and light tone stones against the stark white of ceramics, countertops and furniture. Embrace the natural sunlight from the windows, choose ambient lighting and circular mirrors in the bathroom to create interesting focal points.

Each of these trends have their own distinct characteristics that can enhance your interior design and make your bathroom beautiful. If you’re looking for more inspiration for your next interior design project, download our latest brochures or visit our Instagram page.
