5 Bathroom Remodeling Trends Everyone Should Consider

If you’re struggling with how to begin a bathroom remodel, it can be helpful to look at what other homeowners are doing. And that’s what the 2021 U.S. Houzz Bathroom Trends Study is all about. It shows homeowner preferences for bathroom colors, materials, styles, layouts and other details. We recently went through the report and pulled out five major bathroom renovation trends that we think can be helpful to anyone thinking about remodeling a bathroom.

What great tips! I am adding two bathrooms to an existing cottage that has none. We are having a small addition built that will have a two piece and then a three piece bathroom. I look at Houzz stories and photos all of the time, but still am finding it difficult to make design decisions. This video helped me to make some final decisions about which direction to take in terms of colour and style.

This is very useful information and presenting with the photos helped! We are about half way finished with our down-to-the-studs guest bath reno. I would have liked to have seen this before we designed our bathroom, but it looks we are on the right track with our choices.

Pro tip for extra spaciousness in your renovation: start with a really large bathroom

I'm surprised that Walk-In Tubs weren't mentioned as an option, especially with the focus on "aging or disabled family members". If we redo anything in our guest-wing shared bathroom, I would put my money on replacing the low alcove tub-shower with a walk-in soaking tub and hand shower.

Our retirement home in the countryside has two bedrooms and two bathrooms on the main floor. One has a very large shower, big enough for a whole family, and it takes almost ten minutes to squeegee the water off all that glass. The other main floor shower is about 3’x4’, a very comfortable size, and it takes two or three minutes to squeegee the glass. Because it is smallish, the heat of the water doesn’t dissipate as quickly as in the large shower, another bonus. The house has no bathtub, which works fine for us.
I only use the smaller shower, but my husband uses the larger one. A future owner could remodel the huge shower into a wet room with both shower and tub within a glass enclosure.

Really helpful as we consider a master bath remodel. Especially interested to hear that most are keeping their bathtub!

Freestanding tubs are pretty...but they are a bear to clean around the back side....that's where dust bunnies will hide. When we built I wanted one in a bad way, but since I'm now the cleaner in my home I'm glad I don't have one. As much as I love the look, I don't want the strain reaching around the back of it to clean. The main takeaway from the article was to hire a design professional.

There are so many great cleaning tools to add reach to your tub cleaning. Some use a brush that rotates, doing a lot of work for you. Your cleaning liquid or powder makes a big difference, too. Even vacs come with long slender flat tool to vacuum under the tub all the way to the side.

Only two of the bathrooms had a ladies vanity area. To me if you have enough room it is an absolute must! Otherwise you’re standing leaning against the vanity when you’re doing your make up and hair. Especially as you get older you want somewhere to sit. Whether you’re trimming a beard, adding your night cream or clipping nose hairs! It’s better to sit at a vanity. Ditch the tub unless you really use it or you’re into the very high-end luxury homes. Then it’s expected. People say they want a tub but then they don’t have time to use them. I sell real estate and it seems to be mostly a romantic fantasy… to leisurely soak in a hot bubbly tub. But then the phone rings or your kid is at the bathroom door knocking, Mom, can I come in? Save your money and use it to book a getaway weekend now and then.
