One of the most exciting aspects of building a custom home for many soon-to-be homeowners is getting the opportunity to design the master bathroom of their dreams. The master bathroom is where you’ll start and end every day, so it’s important that it’s organized and functional, but it should also be a relaxing space. These must-have master bathroom trends for 2021 will help you design a space that will be in style this year and for many more to come.
Most homes have one continuous flooring style throughout them, with the exception of a few select rooms like bathrooms, so don’t just go with the first white tile you see. You’ll want to choose a flooring style for your master bathroom that pairs well with your primary flooring, but it’s also your chance to add some flair to your home’s design. Marble and faux wood tiles are two master bathroom flooring trends that have been gaining popularity over the years and they will likely continue to do so in 2021 and well into the future.
Marble isn’t just for countertops anymore, and its increasing popularity as a flooring choice proves it. The clean lines and unique composition of each piece of marble make it an aesthetically pleasing choice, but it’s also practical. Marble tiles are available in various sizes, but using large slabs reduces the amount of grout you’ll need to maintain.
Some homeowners find marble to be a bit too cold for their washrooms, which is why we’re also predicting that porcelain and ceramic tiles that look like natural wood flooring will be popular. These wood-like tiles offer more traction when they’re wet, and they also aren’t as cold to the touch as marble, which is why many homeowners are transitioning to using them in their washrooms.
Regardless of which type of flooring you choose, you should consider installing heated flooring underneath it. No one likes to get up early in the morning and step on to an ice-cold tile floor, which is why heated floors will likely be one of the hottest master bathroom trends of 2021. The tubing that generates the heat for heated flooring needs to be installed underneath the floor, which means it’s a lot easier to install during the construction of a new build. It’s not impossible to install heated floors in a finished home, but you will need to replace your floors to install them.
In most homes, the master bathroom is the homeowners’ private space, which is why designing them to be personal spas and relaxation oases has become increasingly popular and will likely be a design trend in this year as well. The design possibilities are endless, and it really comes down to what helps you unwind and relax, but there are a couple of features that can maximize your relaxation, including:
- Multiple Showerheads
- Steam Showers
- Therapeutic Lighting
- Deep Soaker Tubs
- Separate Toilet Rooms
- Private Vanities
- Heated Flooring
- Sound Systems
Nothing says luxury like taking a long relaxing bath in a modern soaker tub. While you can still get the traditional claw-foot style soaker tubs, free-standing, flat-bottomed tubs will be the master bathroom tub trend for 2021. The flat-bottomed models are much easier to install, and they have an undeniably modern aesthetic. You’ll also have more flexibility with your layout if you use a separate tub and shower, and you can design the lavish walk-in shower of your dreams.
When you’re designing your master bathroom, it’s important to consider function as well as aesthetics, and floating vanities offer both without compromise. Floating vanities are anchored to the wall, which makes them appear modern and lavish, but it also makes them the perfect choice for a bathroom because you can easily clean underneath them. Excess water will inevitably end up on your bathroom floor from time to time, and having vanities that are off the ground ensures you can clean up every drop. Plus, they reduce the likelihood that you’ll run into mould issues.
These mirrors look like something from the future, which ensures they’ll be a master bathroom design trend in 2021 and well after, but their functionality makes them much more than an accent piece. The light comes from behind the mirror, which reduces the amount of glare and makes it much easier to pluck those pesky hairs or get your makeup perfect. Another nice thing about the backlighting is that it’s usually very soft lighting, so it’s not as harsh on your eyes when you get up in the night to use the washroom or grab a glass of water. Backlit mirrors can be used as the primary light source in smaller bathrooms, but it’s best to use them as supplemental lighting in most cases.
