The Top Bathroom Trends for 2021
Does your bathroom need an upgrade? We’ve got your back with the top modern bathroom designs that will be making it big in 2021.
Transport your space from drab to fab with these modern bathroom trends for the new year.
Gold Bathroom Fixtures
For 2021, design trends are showing that gold bathroom fixtures are taking the spotlight for many designers.
From shower heads to taps and even doorknobs, gold will be a focal point in trendy bathrooms across Australia. If you’re looking to add a touch of elegant glamour to your bathroom’s interior design, then gold bathroom fixtures are the way to go.
Gold bathroom fixtures don’t quite do it for you? That’s okay – there’s still a lot of finishes to pick from that fit in with the latest bathroom trends.
Matte black taps are as popular as ever, adding a bold and industrial style to any room. Brass, copper and stainless steel are still a great option for those looking for that classic shiny metal look that will never go out of style.
Bathroom Colour Schemes
After a hectic 2020, we’re expecting calm neutrals, blues and greens to take off in 2021 for bathroom colour schemes. Beige, grey and white will top the neutral tones for bathroom design this year.
Forget about the dark and moody colour tones we’ve been opting for in recent years – we’re thinking light, bright and contemporary for the latest in bathroom design trends.
That said, bright statement colours are still very much the choice for many designers.
Natural Tiles and Finishes
With house sizes decreasing and gardens becoming smaller, we’re seeing homeowners bringing nature indoors with them. Combining natural and organic elements with more modern features makes for a great bathroom design.
Our picks for 2021? Wood, stone, marble and terrazzo will be the materials of choice for many stylish and beautiful bathrooms.
Wood can help bring a natural feel to any space. Used as floor or wall coverings, wood can bring a warm and classic style to any space.
If you’re looking for natural tiles to bring some organic elements to your bathroom, stone, marble and terrazzo are the way to go. There are no harsh lines or shapes with these tiles, which is perfect for this tile trend.
Marble will always be in trend for walls and benchtops in an elegant, contemporary bathroom. Home designers can opt for the classic white and grey marble tile or pick out something unique with a little splash of colour.
If marble doesn’t leave you feeling inspired, the next best thing is stone. Stone tiles are available in a range of different colours and finishes, all which give your bathroom interior a beautiful, natural aesthetic.
Our final pick for popular natural tiles in 2021 is terrazzo. Terrazzo walls and floors will be a sought-after bathroom design trend this year. This tile helps to create the natural look you’re going for and can even include some more fun colours too!
New Bathroom Tech
With the rest of our home becoming smart and automated, our bathrooms are tech-ing up too! While not necessarily related to the modern and elegant design of your bathroom, bathroom tech will only be getting more common in 2021.
For those of us who enjoy singing in the shower, a smart shower head might be just what you need. With built-in speakers that connect to your devices over Bluetooth, you’ll be having one-man shows in your shower every day!
What about a smart mirror? This piece of bathroom tech means you can connect your device to your mirror and watch videos, make video calls and so much more! Some smart mirrors will even detect when you enter the room and will automatically turn on.
After the great toilet paper shortage of 2020, we could safely say bidets would be in the running for the best fixture of the year.
While maybe not the most elegant feature of bathrooms, it’s hard to beat the effectiveness of a bidet. From standalone bidets to toilet attachments, everyone can join in this new bathroom trend.
Not only will you never need to buy toilet paper again, but bidets are an excellent choice for those with sensitive skin! Once you start using a bidet, you can never go back.
Luxury Basins and Vanities
With renovation shows like The Block and House Rules making interior designing more accessible to homeowners, basins and vanities in bathrooms have really seen an upgrade. The old white porcelain sink just doesn’t cut it anymore for a bathroom’s decor.
Now we see a range of different shapes, designs and materials to create beautiful and luxury basins and vanities. Brush your teeth in style with coloured concrete sinks, unique splashback tiles and stylish decor to suit the rest of your designs.
Here at Metropolitan Plumbing, we know our way around bathrooms. Whether you’re looking to install some fresh new taps to fit your modern design or want to make the move to a bidet, you can have the confidence that Metropolitan can get the job done.
