Bathroom trends to look out for in 2021

Bathroom trends to look out for in 2021

The Bathrooms Direct team love keeping up to date with the latest developments in bathroom design and fashion.

Here we’ll take a closer look at a few bathroom ideas for 2021 to help you create a beautiful, modern bathroom space in which you can relax and pamper yourself.  

So, let’s put our shower caps on and see what your bathroom could look like in 2021...

Little details

When it comes to contemporary bathroom ideas, those in the know are paying closer attention to the little accessories, such as bath feet, drawer handles, light pulls and hinges, to bring the bigger picture into focus.

Metallic mania

Are you still sticking with chrome? Why not freshen up your look with a variety of metallic finishes such as gold, nickel or antique bronze, like this Matki Eauzone Plus hinged shower door?

Mixing modern and vintage

Showing that you don’t need to stick with a single style for your bathroom, the ‘modern vintage mix’ is a rapidly spreading trend that combines traditional statement pieces, like roll top baths, with contemporary bathroom ideas and elements.

Fully fitted furniture

Once confined only to the kitchen, bathrooms are now getting in on the act. Fully fitted furniture is set to become a major modern bathroom trend for 2021, offering sophisticated, seamless bathroom layouts perfect for new homes which are decreasing in size.

Dashes, dots and bold colours

Bold graphic designs incorporating repeated (or tessellated) patterns, like animal prints or dots and dashes are on track to be a huge trend in 2021.

You can easily add a designer touch to a plain bathroom layout using a single pot of paint, a stencil kit or even simple hand-drawn markings.

A quick fix for a tired space and a great contemporary bathroom idea. 


The growth of the concept of mindfulness and relaxation is leading to a rise in the popularity of the ‘tropical spa’ look, with greenery and plants galore combined with indulgent and luxurious walk-in showers and freestanding baths.

New colour combinations

Fresh colour duos duos for 2021 include pink & grey, pink & blue, and green & orange.

Why not be bold when you’re picking a modern bathroom palette and try one of these on-trend colour combos? 

Black is the new … black

The ever-popular ‘soft industrial’ theme is likely to continue into 2021, with the trend for thin, black metal frames around glass, combined with black taps and accessories, creating real urban appeal. Another stunning contemporary bathroom idea.

Bathrooms and bathroom merge into one

The traditional boundaries between indoor space and the outdoors are rapidly blurring when it comes to design, and now the same is happening to bathrooms and bedrooms. Instead of keeping the pieces apart in separate rooms, we may begin to find major elements of the bathroom transferring into the bedroom, such as a basin or a freestanding bath.
