If you’re going to invest in remodeling your home, Realtors and designers alike agree, it’s best to spend money bringing your kitchen and bathrooms up-to-date.
National data tells us that the average mid-range bathroom remodel costs about $24,000 and homeowners can expect to recoup about 60% of that investment when it comes time to sell.
Planning to renovate your bathroom this year? Here’s what’s in for 2021.
Bathroom vanities are getting a major overhaul, and while an upgraded vanity has been popular for a while now, it’s big in 2021. Free-standing vanities that look like custom furniture pieces are very popular and serve to elevate the entire look and feel of a bathroom. Many homeowners are opting for rich wood toned vanities with quartz or marble tops for the sleekest look.
Bathrooms in 2021 are getting saturated with color! Think bold hues like dreamy turquoise, deep blue and even moody black. While white subway tile will never be out of style, many homeowners and designers are reaching for more color when they shop for tile nowadays.
In half bathrooms, where space is limited, you’ll find more and more homeowners selecting floating sinks to maximize square footage. Often resting on a base of thick, natural colored wood a suspended works to trick the eye into thinking the room is much larger. Floating sinks made exclusively of marble and quartz are also becoming popular, as well.
Floors that look like hardwood
While tile continues to reign supreme, porcelain designed to look like hardwoods are making a big splash in 2021. Working to significantly soften the space, hardwood-like flooring is a trend expected to last for quite a while.
Gone are the days of large garden tubs taking up half the square feet of the bathroom. Today, you’ll see slim freestanding tubs in their place–taking up a significantly less footprint than their out of date counterparts. Freestanding tubs are built for soaking, and come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colors!
For a truly custom look, interior designers love mixing metals. In the bathroom, wire-brushed gold can easily be mixed with pewter and even matte black! The rule of thumb here is to just keep your plumbing fixtures the same finish. You can get creative with towel hooks, your mirror and the lights above your vanity, too!
