What’s the most popular spot in the home for doing renovation or extension work? Well, according to majority of interior designers and home builders, the bathroom remains one of the most popular locations, perhaps because we spend so much time in them! But, before splurging your hard-earned money on a bathroom extension or renovation, here’s a quick peek at a few of the top bathroom extension/renovation trends for 2021.
Before giving a new whiff of life into your bathroom, the first thing that you need to do is plan. According to seasoned home extension Brisbane experts, there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all technique or method to bathroom renovations or extensions. However, if you carefully consider the bathroom’s design (and costs), no one’s stopping you from attaining your dream bathroom!
For 2021, one of the top bathroom design trend veers more toward nature-oriented themes. Now, isn’t that ironic considering that much of Mother Nature is sadly vanishing from the face of the planet?
Well, one easy way to add that nature-like feel to your bathroom would be to place a large yet tiny number of indoor plants into the area, and use nature-like colors such as green, grey, white and blue.
The Use of More Natural Light
One great way of using more natural light for your bathroom would be to install a glass or fiberglass ceiling on top of the area, which should help you save electricity during the daytime. But when the sun sets, you could use Velux Skylights (or any other type of skylight) to add a classier five star hotel-like feel to the area.
Another top bathroom extension or renovation trend for this year, according to most Brisbane home extensions experts, is free-standing baths. Why? Well, free-standing baths can quickly turn any bathroom into a five star resort-style area, although this would depend on the available space. Free-standing baths also come in various styles and sizes from round to rectangle, oval, D-shaped and more.
If I were to renovate or reinvigorate my bathroom, I’d probably have a walk-in shower constructed. Why? Because personally, walk-in showers provide a classy, contemporary feel to the area, which would certainly be a show-stopper when it comes to bathroom extensions.
One good thing about having a walk-in shower created is that it’s also safe for kids and the elderly. And, these types of showers are much easier to clean too, because you’ll have less (or nil) nooks and crannies where dirt, mold and mildew can gather or accumulate.
Retro Bathtubs and Wooden Vanities
Who says that the retro designs of the 30s, 40s or roaring 50s is already outdated? In fact, retro bathtubs and wooden vanities are actually one of the top home design and building Brisbane trends for this year.
Bathtubs that look like the ones where Marilyn Monroe or Greta Garbo relaxed, and bathed on, will definitely be in a lot of homes in 2021. The creative use of timber and black oak should give these spaces a woody, retro feel too.
Like any other home renovation or extension theme or fad, bathroom design trends tend to come and go. However, the experts see these 5 trends standing out this year. And with US homeowners expected to spend a whopping $43 billion for home renovation or extension this year, you’ll likely see any of these design trends in your friends or co-workers bathrooms!
