The Top 2021 Bathroom Upgrades

Even though we are halfway through the year, does not mean it is too late to upgrade features in your restroom. If you are ready to get the most up-to-date restroom, check out these top 2021 bathroom upgrades.

Floating Vanities

One of the most prominent bathroom upgrades that we see homeowners get is floating vanities. But what is a floating vanity? A floating vanity is a vanity that is attached to the wall and has no legs or feet. It looks like it is ‘floating’ above the ground. This type of vanity gives off a modern or contemporary feel in your bathroom. Plus, you can add storage baskets underneath to store even more items.

Accent Walls

Accent walls are all the rage right now, even in the bathroom. There are many different ways you can create an accent wall in your restroom. You can go with fun wallpaper, a solid color, backsplash or even shiplap. For more inspiration, check out our recent accent wall ideas guide.

Medicine Cabinets

Those old school medicine cabinets many houses had in the ’70s or ’80s are making a comeback, but with a twist. Many of these new-school medicine cabinets come with backlights, giving you more lighting while looking into its mirror. Plus, you can also use it as a nightlight or a dimmer at night.

Freestanding Tubs

More and more homeowners are upgrading their bathtubs (or showers) to freestanding tubs. A freestanding tub is a bathtub that is not against a wall or shower to give it support. These bathtubs give off luxury and elegance.

Smart Toilets

Advancements in technology do not miss any part of the home, including the bathroom. Now, you can find smart toilets out on the market. Smart toilets typically have advance features like self-cleaning, seat warmers, bidet, music and many more elements. Each brand will have its specific features and availability. Before purchasing, make sure your sales representative gives you a full breakdown of what is included with the toilet.

“Living” Metals

Design elements, fixtures and faucets are still part of bathroom upgrades. Right now, we are seeing more homeowners switch over to “living” metals. Living metals like unpolished brass, pewter and bronze are making a statement in many homeowners’ bathrooms. Older-looking fixtures or hardware add a touch of elegance or nostalgia to any restroom.

Heated Flooring

If you live in a colder environment or have feet issues, you must check out our last 2021 upgrade — heated floors. To install this system, you will want to work with an electrician and a flooring contractor to make sure everything is installed correctly. You not only want it to work, but you also want to make sure that it does not start a fire.
