With many people spending more time in their homes throughout 2020 and placing even more focus on the cleanliness f their homes, hygiene continues to be a focal point for homeowners in 2021. If you are considering a bathroom remodel, many trends for this year are prioritizing easy-to-clean surfaces as well as antimicrobial fixtures.
Tiny mosaic tiles for bathroom walls are a thing of the past in 2021. Large-format tiles provide a significant visual impact with fewer grout lines. This means you can achieve a great look without the hassle of scrubbing in between the many small grout line that comes with tiny mosaic tile walls.
You can pair these large-format tile walls with natural stone or stone-look materials for a more luxurious look. Another popular option in addition to the large tile and slab wall coverings is nontraditional subway tiles. These are offered in a wide range of sizes, textures, and colors and can be stacked vertically or horizontally for a minimalist look that is sure to impress.
Your bathroom remodeling project wouldn’t be complete without a fresh coat of paint. This year you can expect to see warm and vibrant colors for bathrooms trending. One major thing to consider, no matter which color you choose, is to find a durable paint to help keep your bathroom cleaner for longer.
Throughout 2020, paint companies created more durable paints that are more hygienic, stain-resistant, and can stand up to the more frequent pandemic cleaning and sanitizing. A few examples of this type of paint are PPG UltraLast paint + primer, Behr Premium Plus Paint and Primer in One, and Sherwin-Williams Duration Home Interior Acrylic Latex Paint.
These paints are available in a variety of colors and finishes, so you don’t have to sacrifice the look you want to get the durability and stain-resistance you need.
Quartz has always been a popular option for kitchen countertops due to its durability and resistance to scratching and staining. Since it is one of the hardest natural materials on the market, it is also great for bathroom countertops and has been growing as a popular bathroom option.
This material can also easily keep up with the daily wear and tear and from everyday use as well as the more frequent cleaning and sanitizing in our more cautious world. Another great feature is that quartz is non-porous, meaning that it is less likely to foster bacteria, which is especially important in a damp environment like a bathroom. Quartz countertops are on-trend with today’s contemporary-inspired bathroom designs offering sleek profiles with few seams for a low-maintenance option.
2021 is trending toward light-colored finishes for quartz countertops to help complement the warmer paint colors. You can also choose quartz that mimics the look of cement or marble to mix with other elements in your bathroom, such as natural wood.
