2021: Creating your In-home Spa
Written by: Corrie V. M Scott
Bathrooms are no longer a place to handle “personal business” or to freshen up before a meal, it is a room in your house that holds big value in remodeling, renovating, or even reselling. Your bathroom in 2021 can now be your own highlight in your home. From lighting, tile and cabinetry, plumbing features, and bathroom technology. Here’s some insight on getting the most bang for your buck with adding a wow factor.
Bathroom lighting has always taken a backseat in this room due to privacy; however natural lighting is the main contender now. Big windows with amazing views can bring relaxation to a calming night bath or to a bright awaking morning shower. Lighting in 2021 is not just natural but hidden as well. Lumins are big in bathrooms providing lighting in areas behind mirrors and under cabinets. Do not leave your shower out, lumins are along shower ceilings hidden from view but also out of direct contact with water. So, whether you decide a new fixture, hidden lumins, or simply knocking out that little bathroom window, and inviting tranquility with a floor to ceiling window to compliment your new tile.
Tile, walls and cabinetry play important roles in bathrooms for 2021. Tile is still important to a bathroom, but quarts counters, floor to ceiling marble in showers, and waterproof plaster have taken the lead since 2020. Wallpaper as you know has bounced back as well, however this treatment for your bathroom can come in metallic tones of bronze and copper. Using wallpaper has been a great way to create accent walls that are exciting, inviting, and versatile. This space turns up to another level once you add some cabinetry, and what easy way to do that is by creating the ultimate vanity experience. Vanities also play a big roll, but we all are aware of the space they consume, however if you want that space back, just make your vanity float! Floating vanities create space on the floor, but if a floating vanity is not your style, ADD SOME COLOR! Cabinetry can come in any color you want and is a great way to create a focal point or a simple pop of color for spice.
