Bathroom Remodeling Trends in 2021

What is popular in bathroom remodeling in 2021 will most likely still be in demand when it is time to sell later, giving one a competitive edge. It is good to know what people are reporting as their must haves, to make sure yours isn’t missing out. Houzz did a survey of 1600 homeowners that were in the process of a master bathroom remodel in 2020 to determine what were the most popular features, styles and colors on trend. When asked why they were remodeling, sixty nine percent reported they were done with having an old or outdated space. They wanted more storage, bigger showers, better lighting and more countertop space.

The choice of hiring of professionals to design and complete the bathroom remodel remains high at 82%. For the first time, half of the bathroom remodeling projects removed the tub in order to have a larger shower, vanity, and more cabinetry. As long as there is another tub in the home, this is a viable choice.

More people reported wanting their bathroom to be a place of rest and relaxation. The top factors in creating a bathroom for rest and relaxation include: cleanliness (65%), lack of clutter (58%), soaking in a bath or long showers (55%, 54%), natural light (42%), and dimmable lighting (33%). The husband and wife each wanted their own vanity undermount sink (68%) and recessed medicine cabinet (69%).

Nearly 9 out of 10 change their bathroom style to be Modern in design (20%), with Traditional and Contemporary designs closely following (tied at 18%). White remains the top color choice especially for countertops (51%), shower walls (45%), and walls (32%). Runners up include having an accent wall in the shower (37%), custom or semi-custom built-in shaker style wood cabinetry (26%), and gray walls (28%).

These are the most popular features in material selections:

  • Both wall and recessed lights (59%, 55%)
  • Rainfall shower head (58%)
  • Soaking tub that is stand alone with a flat bottom (53%)
  • Accent wall having surface texture (51%), color (45%) and pattern (41%)
  • High tech water efficient faucets (48%)
  • Toilet with a built-in bidet seat (22%,) and self-cleaning (14%)

Bottom line, have the bathroom designed to your style with the features important to you and your lifestyle for maximum daily enjoyment on your investment.
