Bathroom Renovation Trends of 2021

Whether you’re building a new home from scratch or looking for renovation work, Glenn Layton Homes is your ideal new home builder in Jacksonville FL. They can create a dream coastal home, or they can update your existing home, such as the inclusion of a luxury spa-like bathroom. Everyone deserves a bathroom where they can relax and wash away the stresses of the day in style, and some of these latest trends might be perfect for you.

Perhaps one of the features that has caught on the most in recent years is the smart toilet, which essentially offers a toilet and a bidet, all in one. You get a classic toilet — though often more streamlined and easier to clean around — that has a self-closing lid, a warm spray to help clean yourself, and even warm air to help dry you off, all in a self-cleaning toilet.

Other smarthome technology comes in the form of smart showers, and many of these work directly with your Alexa, so you don’t have to fiddle with your phone to get things started. What you do get is an automatic start without the cold wait at the beginning, Bluetooth speakers and a water-proof screen for that perfect playlist, and voice commands for temperature, lighting, and water flow. This takes singing in the shower to new levels!

In terms of style, people are looking for bathroom designs that make them feel relaxed and calm. Floating vanities and shelving help achieve this, giving a sense of light airiness. They also present a cleaner look to the space without the heaviness associated with more traditional bathroom cabinetry.

To add to that zen-like floating feeling, incorporate integrated lighting into your bathroom. By adding lights behind mirrors, medicine cabinets, and on the edges of vanities, you create a softer lighting effect. Plus, you avoid glare and uneven lighting. This can always be added to more traditional lighting, but it definitely creates a more soothing environment. No one likes that first harsh glare of light in the morning and definitely not in the middle of the night.

For the feeling of luxury and relaxation, large, open showers with benches built in are a must. Equally popular are large separate soaking tubs, especially with a skylight overhead. In fact, the addition of more windows and natural light — with privacy kept in mind — is certainly on trend this year. People want spacious bathrooms where they don’t feel cramped and can fully enjoy their shower or bath experience. Free-standing, flat-bottomed tubs that rise up to give you plenty of neck and back support are perfect for that dream bathroom.

These are some of the biggest trends this year that are likely to continue. Other design aspects include the use of wood, in the form of bathmats and furniture, lots of natural greenery for a hidden garden or forest-type atmosphere, and natural tones that veer toward boldness, in the form of rust and charcoal, at least as accent colors.

Whether you’re building from scratch or renovating, think about the features that are most important to you and focus on including those first and then add in some of the other style features. This gives you a better chance of creating a bathroom where you can truly relax and feel comfortable. Fortunately, when you work with Glenn Layton Homes, you’re getting an experienced new home builder in Jacksonville FL who can make your dreams a reality.
