With every new year comes the urge to reboot. This past year saw home take on a new meaning for almost everyone, and we can guarantee that this feeling will only magnify in 2021. Spoiler alert: It’s going to be good, especially for self-care.
Of all the rooms in the home, the bathroom is traditionally the one least driven by trends. A bathroom is not a cheap or easy space to refit, so choosing a design that will have longevity is often at the forefront of the decision-making process. Of course, a bathroom must guarantee complete functionality, but homeowners want to transform them into opportunistic spaces that make daily escapism effortless - offering a place of relaxation that evokes feelings of luxury and tranquillity.
There’s no doubt that the bathroom is the ideal space to begin your design refresh. Delivering a bathroom scheme that is functional with a striking and captivating aesthetic is key for any modern bathroom - after all, it’s where all of your self-care rituals take place, and it should be designed with tranquillity at the top of your mind.
Modern bathroom ideas include designs that radiate a minimalist and contemporary aesthetic and ooze luxurious appeal from top to bottom, in-keeping with all the latest interior trends. We believe, as the bathroom continues to become a more deeply personal space, it will play a vital role in providing the ultimate place to decompress and thrive.
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.

Raring to embrace the return of coloured sanitaryware? The opportunity for homeowners to experiment with colour in their bathroom design is greater than ever before, and the power of a bold, colourful bathroom will offer a new-found way to express individual style and character.
The past few years have seen a shift away from the all white sanctuary look and a rising use of colour in bathroom design. A fresh coat of paint in a new hue goes a long way to freshening up and starting anew after a long year, especially in a bathroom.
Colour is increasingly being used to reflect style and personality, and to create a more playful, adventurous look. The top colours for 2021 are vibrant and warm, an ideal mix for the room that both starts and ends your day.

Following on from last year’s confusion and uncertainty, creating spa-like serenity at home has never been more essential. With the stress of 2021 upon us, it’s no wonder copious amounts of self-care is on many to-do lists.
Creating an at-home sanctuary for yourself can often be as easy as lighting the right candle or pouring the right glass of wine. But for those that want to take it a little further, a bathroom accent inspired by some of your favourite luxury hotels is the way to go. A bathroom designed with clean lines and simplicity in mind provides inspiriting contrast to the hustle and bustle of daily life.
The pandemic has only increased the desire for relaxation, making soaking tubs a top bathroom feature for the year ahead. According to a Houzz bathroom trends study, freestanding, flat-bottom tubs will be more popular than clawfoot models. The curvature of a freestanding tub is visually and aesthetically soothing, homeowners are bound to welcome those aspects of tranquility into their places of rejuvenation. Pour us the bubbly (bath), please!

All design enthusiasts know a few pieces that boast a time-worn appeal make every room come alive, and bathrooms are no exception to this rule. One effortless place to capture that nuanced touch? Your fixtures. For 2021, we foresee the continued embrace of living metals in bathroom fixtures, specifically your plumbing and hardware.
Metal has been a significant interior trend in recent years; it seems that it will not be falling into disuse. Metals like unpolished brass, age, and patina beautifully over time - making it the perfect addition in traditional and modern spaces alike. Brass finishes reflect the light and inject style, either with an industrial touch or a touch of glamour.
This trend for incorporating brushed brass into the bathroom has been prevalent for some years. However, it is now adapting in new and exciting ways to suit different design schemes.

Does your bathroom need a rug? Yes, it does! We spend a lot of time in our bathrooms, so it’s only right that we should make them into a luxurious, modern sanctuary for function and relaxation. If you're searching for ways to infuse your bathroom with a dose of warmth and personality, look no further than the Persian rug.
Having a rug in your washroom has many benefits - they add a cosy spot for your feet in the mornings, introduce colour and design to a monotone room or neutralise a bathroom with busy tiles. These timeless textiles will inject a touch of glamour and convert this typically cold room into an attractive and sophisticated space.
For the longest time, people thought there was only one solution for rugs in the bathroom: the traditional bath mat. Then came along the ‘area rug as a bath mat’ concept. If you’re lucky enough to have a tub, especially a stand-alone tub, a Persian or Oriental rug can be a gorgeous addition to your space.
Here are our top picks of Persian and Oriental Rugs from this months offers collection.
