These Are the Top Bathroom Design Trends for 2021
From flooring to faucets, ELLE Decor shares the latest and greatest for the coming year.
With every new year comes the urge to reboot—and we can guarantee that this feeling will only be magnified when 2020 officially comes to a close. There’s no doubt that the bathroom is the ideal space to begin your design refresh; after all, it’s where all of your self-care rituals take place, and it should be designed with tranquillity at top of mind. It should be a place where you love to spend time, whether you’re simply brushing your teeth or soaking in the tub with a glass of wine and a favorite book. So if you’re in the mood to give your bathroom a face-lift, look no further and get inspired by these stylish bathroom design trends for 2021.
Sconces are so last season. Opt for pendants or even a grand chandelier, like the one shown here in French designer Jacques Grange’s Paris apartment.
Subway is here to stay—but this time with color. Revamp your space like Robert Couturier did here with brightly hued tiles.
This trend inspired by nature is having a serious moment. Take your cues from Sophie Sèguéla's palm-bedecked bathroom in her former Parisian apartment.
Wallpaper is what’s hot for 2021. Wrap your walls in a classic print, like this Ralph Lauren pin-striped paper seen in a bathroom designed by Achille Salvagni.
Panoramic views like those in the TriBeCa duplex of Beth Bugdaycay are refreshingly beautiful in summer—while heated marble floors keep the space equally cozy come winter.
More is more when it comes to marble—and not just basic black and white. This Amalfi Coast bathroom designed by Jacques Garcia makes a chic case for color, with ruby and deep green stone throughout.
A black-and-white checked floor feels instantly fresh when it’s done in mosaic tile like it is in this Sonoma Valley home designed by Ken Fulk.
Swap out your bath mat for a full-size rug like the vintage one shown here in this Hollywood Hills home.
A black stone soaking tub by Native Trails and an all-neutral palette creates a calming oasis in this Vanessa Alexander–designed bathroom in Venice, California.
Beautiful bathtubs will take center stage next season, like this circa-1850 freestanding marble tub in a Greenwich, Connecticut, home.
Creating the ultimate retreat is all the rage for 2021. Take note from designer Lynda Murray and architect Chad Oppenheim, who fashioned a spa-like bathroom in filmmaker Michael Bay’s Miami home.
