As 2021 gets underway, you may be looking forward to some improvements you can make in your home. Bathroom remodels bring decent ROIs, plus they can greatly increase your comfort and convenience. If you’re tired of your cramped bathroom that perhaps doesn’t flow well and no longer serves your needs, you may be thinking of renovating it.

Just remember, a successful bathroom remodeling project starts with a successful building design from experienced contractors in Greater Boston. Here’s a look at some 2021 trends in bathrooms.

Cocoon Rooms

A cocoon room is more a concept or an overall mood than a thing. The idea is to surround yourself with a cozy cocoon that allows you to enjoy the simple moments in life. Bathrooms, especially master bathrooms, serve as the heart and soul of our homes. They are where we retreat to after a long day, where we prepare for the day ahead and where we recharge when we are feeling depleted.

It’s an oasis of sorts, a place to de-stress and unwind. Why not create a space that envelopes you each and every day, where you can relax in a hot tub surrounded by scented candles or enjoy a spa-like experience complete with massaging showers, steam rooms, saunas and hydrotherapy baths?

Blended Themes

Gone are the days of sticking to one style or theme in a bathroom without variance. The trend this year is to blend themes, textures, styles and looks to result in an eclectic combination of everything that defines you. Pair busy with bold, daring with traditional, classy with edgy. 2021 will make way for the trend of biophilia, or the creation of nature-inspired spa-like sanctuaries featuring intricate murals that combine vintage and modern all in one. So go ahead, splurge on that Victorian roll-top bath, but don’t be afraid to accent it with a modern, sleek alcove highlighted by bright tiles.


Even though more and more people are staying at home and opting not to travel to fancy hotels, the need for luxury has not dimmed. The setting has. Now, homeowners are looking to incorporate everything they love about five-star resorts into their own bathrooms, including such features as high-tech smart gadgets, heated floors and towel racks, and waterfall shower heads. Creating a rich, sensory environment is key in 2021. The average woman, for example, spends 30 minutes a day in the bathroom. They want to enrich this experience so they can enjoy more of a spa-like environment, complete with walk-in showers with benches, vanities for doing nails and hair, luxury tiles and plenty of nooks for storage. The overall goal is to reduce stress and foster creativity.

Bathroom Colors

2021 is welcoming new colors to the bathroom. In keeping with the biophilia theme, greens are all the rage right now. Verdant shades and hues, paired with bold tiles, ceramics, furniture and fixtures, evoke a sense of nature, harmony and calm. Natural pigments and earth tones are also making a comeback, from rust and terracotta to biscuit and caramel. Tiles in earthy colors with tactile finishes contrast well with black fixtures and basins for added depth.
