It’s no exaggeration to say that everyone is more preoccupied with having a clean home after the past year. Heavily used areas like kitchens and bathrooms are especially high on the cleanliness list, making easy-to-clean surfaces the hottest (and most stylish) of the 2021 trends.
At Medallion Home, we design all of our bathrooms to enhance everything you want and need for your daily routine.
1) Warm Colors and Durable Paint
The top colors for 2021 are vibrant, earthy, and warm. New advancements are making paints more hygienic, stain-resistant, and able to withstand vigorous cleaning. And new durable paints will help your surfaces stay cleaner for longer.
2) Quartz Countertops
Quartz is one of the hardest natural materials, resistant to scratching and staining, and easy to maintain. Plus, quartz surfacing is non-porous, so it is less likely to foster bacteria. Quartz countertops also have sleek profiles with few seams, which adds to their low-maintenance appeal.
3) Unique Wall Tiles
Large tiles and stone slabs not only look luxurious in your shower, but their minimal grout lines mean less to clean, making them a hot choice in the bath. Thanks to their minimalist appearance, subway tiles in various sizes, colors, and finishes, stacked vertically or horizontally, are another hot design trend.
4) Floor Tiles that Mimic Wood
As beautiful as hardwood floors are, they don't always work in the bathroom. Porcelain and ceramic continue to be the preferred bathroom flooring due to their durability, easiness to clean, hypoallergenic characteristics, and resistance to moisture and bacteria. Innovations in design have led to ceramic or porcelain tile that looks just like wood flooring, so you get the best in form and function.
5) Smart Toilets
Smart toilets are definitely finding their way into the post-pandemic home, according to the NKBA 2021 design trends report. They have hands-free features, like self-closing lids and touch-free flushing; some even have self-cleaning technology. Smart toilets also have streamlined profiles and wall-mount installations, eliminating the traditional exposed plumbing, and making cleaning easier.
