Because of the pandemic, 2020 placed a greater emphasis on both hygiene and self-care. That awareness has continued on into 2021, heavily influencing trends in bathroom remodeling Neptune Beach. If you would like to update your personal space, here are some ideas to try.
Wood is generally not a material that works well in a bathroom because moisture causes it to warp. Nevertheless, finishes inspired by nature, including porcelain or ceramic tiles that mimic the appearance of wood, are currently very trendy. These offer the appearance of an organic material while still being easy to clean and resistant to bacteria or mold growth. Another popular nature-inspired finish involves tile that mimics the appearance of marble.
Smart toilets are equipped with motion-sensing technology that offers amenities such as hands-free flushing and self-closing lids. Features such as these, as well as bacteria-killing light, help to keep the toilet clean and reduce the necessity to touch it with your hands, all great benefits to people trying to avoid germs.
Despite a movement to banish tubs completely from the master bath, soaking tubs have been trending for some time. The trend continues and may possibly have even picked up some steam because of a nice, hot soak being recognized as a cost-effective and social-distanced means of relaxation and self-care. Currently, the tubs themselves are making more efficient use of space, doing more with less. The soaking tub trend seems unlikely to die out any time soon, although it will be interesting to see whether it continues to evolve.
Backlit mirrors offer a number of advantages that may account for their popularity:
- A cool visual effect that makes it look like the mirror is floating
- Extra functionality as a nightlight
- Reduced reflections and glare
A backlit mirror can also highlight an interesting texture on the wall surface.
Some of these trends may have been influenced by the pandemic but will hopefully outlive it.
