Bathrooms no longer need to be clinical white, polished ceramic and clean contemporary. Instead try to be busy and bold in your bathroom and powder room. 2021 will be all about bringing the outside in with biophilia, creating a spa-like sanctuary, with intricate murals and fusing vintage and modernity with stunning installations.

In 2021 the Victorian roll top bath will remain a crucial component to be harmoniously blended with modern, sleek alcoves, bright tiles and the latest tech.

As homeowners, we tend to use our bathrooms at least twice a day, however studies have shown the average female spends a minimum of 29 minutes in this space each day so its becoming a necessity to ensure that bathroom design deliveries an at home-spa atmosphere so we can linger for longer.
With luxury tiles, spa-like nooks for storage, Biophillia – the integration and inclusion of nature – isn’t going anywhere. A biophillic bathroom design will boast certain patterns that reduce stress and improve creativity while featuring forms and materials that emulate those found outdoors.
There are extensive ranges of luxurious showers and heads available to help you create that spa-like indulgent showering experience. Connection between water and wellbeing has never been easier with waterfall shower heads and walk-in showers.

From scented candles to luxury finishes there are multiple ways to create your very own home retreat. We want to create a hub of wellbeing in our own homes where we are de-stress and unwind.
This trend is called ‘Cocooning’ because its way for people to warp themselves in comfort and a quiet sense of luxury. Cocooning can created with simple moments that make us pause such as lighting a scented candle, putting on your warm robe, enjoying your spa like fittings.

In 2021 there will be a clever spin on classic white ceramic with decorative basins featuring ripples, brightly coloured matte versions, Miami vice-like pastels or the addition of gold rims.

Designs will also include alternatives to the ceramic basin using materials such as glass, concrete, pressurised surfaces and mineral cast basin.
