Posted on March 24th, 2021   Categories Bathrooms, Design, Latest News

Using innovative techniques and fresh colours, new bathroom designs are emerging all the time. We all want to update our homes, and let’s face it, we spend a lot of time in our bathrooms. But if you’re going to give yours a makeover, it’s well worth looking at new bathroom ideas for this year.

We always keep our finger on the pulse when it comes to new bathroom designs; and because our mission is to help, we’re more than happy to share those fresh ideas with you. So, what’s new for 2021?

New colour ideas

One of the most important elements in bathroom design is colour. New shades are always appearing, and designers are making the most of them. A popular combination for 2021 is pink matched with either blue or grey. A more bold combination is orange with green. It may not seem an obvious pairing, but the effect is fresh, vibrant and contemporary.

Matte black is a timeless classic, but still offers a modern feel for new bathroom designs. One reported trend predicts that patterns are going to be important this year. These include dots, dashes and other random or repeated patterns in strong, contrasting colours. An ideal combination with matte black fittings and features.

Neutral or bold?

Whether you opt for subtle shades or vibrant colours will depend largely on your preference and décor style. Bold and bright seems to be making a comeback; but don’t worry if your bathroom is more traditional than contemporary. Vivid blocks of colour within a classic setting can be incredibly effective. You can even mix modern fittings with traditional style fixtures.

Wall and floor tiles

Hexagon tiles are not a new concept, but they’ve become very popular in recent times. With geometric décor now a key trend, you can make a real impact with some well-chosen colours. Metro (or subway) tiles are also as fashionable as ever. But, a new idea for 2021 is to fit them in unexpected patterns.

There is also a move towards fitting patterned tiles within a plain tiled wall or floor. Plain white tiles are smart and functional, but a carefully placed section of graphic tiles will give your bathroom that extra dash of style.

Classic or contemporary?

The lines between modern and traditional are becoming more blurred as people mix and match between the two. New bathroom designs include features like frameless shower doors, industrial elements and full wall graphics. You may be wary of incorporating such ideas into a traditional style bathroom, but don’t be. It actually works amazingly well.
