The Bathroom Renovation Checklist for 2021

The latest bathroom renovation trends concentrate on “el fresco” and “fresh air” living. Due to the fact that many homeowners are spending a lot of time inside they are looking for a connection with nature and the el fresco style provides that connection. It merges the border between the inside and outside of the home. 2021 brings with it bold, creative designs in bathroom renovations. We recommend using our bathroom renovation services based in the Scotland area and these trends to inspire your bathroom design.

Incorporating wooden features into your bathroom

Many bathroom designers are choosing destinations and creating their designs around the destination’s scenery. Next, they include unique environmental features into the bathrooms they design from cabinetry to bathtubs and trim. An example is choosing a Huang cabinet. The Huang mountain range in China is home to walnut trees and rosewood. This cabinet is made from walnut root and rosewood veneer, adding a modern element. From the redwoods seen in Northern California to bamboo taken from East Asia, wood cabinets make a statement and add a natural element to your bathroom renovations. 

Adding stone features to your bathroom

Other designers are taking inspiration from underground caves or homes built into the landscape. They are veering away from traditional tiles to carved limestone and quartz adding elegance and an airy feel. Using stone from your countertops to the bathtub, is a creative idea in your bathroom renovations based in the Scotland area.

Installing subdued lighting into your bathroom

The el fresco lifestyles considers the bathroom a place to relax and connect with nature. To get the right effect, soft lighting that mimics the outdoors is required. Skylights and big windows create this effect, but aren’t always needed. A big chandelier suited in size to the room as a whole, pendant lighting or even ceiling lighting ass an ambient feel. If the bathroom is too dark, tea lights in crystal or stone holders add elegance.

Adding a bold bathtub to your bathroom

Cream colours combined with bronze tapware, or a vintage design is trending coming into 2021. The bathtub shouldn’t just be another part of the room but the focal point drawing attention to its design. Speak to our bathroom designer about a statement bathtub in your bathroom and the idea of incorporating bronze accents through tapware.

Fitting gold hardware in your bathroom

Gold is trendy at the moment and will make an impact in your bathroom. This year you will see accents of bold and brass across sinks, toilets and mirrors and in smaller touches such as hardware and faucets. These warm tones add an element of depth to your bathroom giving I a welcoming and luxurious feel. Colours vary from light bronze to statement-making golds. So your look can be from chic to antique. Discuss hardware options for your bathroom renovations with our bathroom designer. 

Installing a smart toilet in your bathroom

Smart toilets are becoming more popular. They offer seat dryers, automated lid openers and deodorisers. You will notice the efficiency of the flushing and cleaning options that make use of wireless technology and sensors. Some smart toilets have Tornado Flush Technology with the fastest water siphoning capabilities on the market. Offering maximum sanitation, a small amount of effort and the latest technology, having a smart toilet will be a top trend in 2021.

Using mirrors in your bathroom with unique shapes

Large, square mirrors are less common in the bathroom. Look for mirror shapes that highlight the depth of the room like circles, cubes or hexagons. A unique shaped mirror adds a contemporary twist while reflecting natural light. Matching trim on your mirror in bronze, stone or wood looks good. A unique-shaped mirror adds a luxurious feel.

Adding oblong sinks to your bathroom 

Oblong sinks are replacing traditional sinks. Bathroom designers are creating a vintage basin aesthetic. Made from both wood and stone, their basins are carved or cut into oblong shapes from small to large in size. When perceived as pieces of art, these basins bring a luxurious element to a bathroom renovation in the Scotland area.
