The 6 Bathroom Trends That Will be Everywhere in 2021
At some point after the Tiger King phase of the pandemic, it hit us: we're going to be home in the long run, so we might as well create a space to look forward to. Our dining rooms became workplaces, our basements became home gyms, and when it came to taking a break from it all, we've committed to turning our bathrooms into spas. Two in five people who renovated a master bathroom in the past year said they did so to make it a place of rest and relaxation. This emerges from Houzz's 2020 Bathroom Trends Study. But what exactly does it look like? We collected the data and spoke to designers to come up with six new ideas for your space.

1. Oversized tile
Penny tiles look retro in style, but for a sleek, less crowded look, choose oversized rectangular tiles. Fewer grout lines mean less scrubbing for you and can also make a small bathroom appear larger. Just make sure you use a matte finish when installing them on your floors so you don't slip, say Houzz professionals.
2. Extra thick counters
Thicker worktops immediately give a vanity a more impressive high-end look. And we mean thick: think of three to six inch panels over the traditional one and a half inches, says Gillian Segal of Gillian Segal Design in Vancouver. Marble, especially with intricate veins, really makes these counters pop, but if that's not within your budget, consider colored quartzite.
3. Warm ivory
Part of the search for comfort in our homes is the return to warmer colors. We've seen interest in beige and brown furniture again, and that feeling extends to the bathroom too. If crisp white feels a little cold and hospital-like to you, try ivory, Segal suggests. (To liven things up further, the designer likes to work in earthy neutral colors like moss green and terracotta.)
4. Installation on the display
Exposed plumbing is one of designer Kate Lester's favorite ways to add character to a bathroom. The key is choosing lights that match the style of the room. "If your look is more contemporary, then you tend to go for something with cleaner lines and lever handles. If you're more traditional, I like a vintage feel with cross handles and a china detail," she says.
An equally important consideration is installing it at the correct height so that you don't lean over to shower. “We always draw to make sure the shower head and valves hit exactly the right height for our customers. However, if you don't have fancy software to draw, that's fine. You can print out the data sheet online and tape the outline with blue tape, "explains Lester. "This way you know that everything is in exactly the right place when you install it."
5. High tech shower heads
A rain shower head is great, but the latest models can do a lot more. The Moen Aromatherapy Handshower ($ 130) allows you to ONLY insert essential oil bowls into the shower head and add one of four scents to your bathroom as you scrub.
For those who love to chill out with music, Kohler's Moxie Showerhead ($ 120) has a waterproof, Bluetooth-enabled speaker that lets you pull out Watermelon Sugar to your heart's content.
6. Self-care stations
The absolute easiest way to make your bathroom a little more sacred is with your accessories. If you love a good bath, a bath tray ($ 26) and shower wine glass holster ($ 30) can be all you need to stop the doom scrolling and recharge.
