Bathroom looking tired? Be inspired! Discover our 10 modern bathroom ideas for 2021 and beyond.
Whilst the Coronavirus pandemic has put many of our best-laid plans on hold, bathroom makeovers are proving more popular than ever.
Whatever situation you find yourself in, it shouldn’t stop you from dreaming big when it comes to that next bathroom refurb. So, to help you achieve your Little Bathroom Victories, we’ve come up with these 10 modern bathroom ideas for 2021 and beyond. Which do you like best?
1. Monochrome modernity
Monochrome colour schemes remain incredibly popular with homeowners across the UK, and it isn’t hard to see why.
This bathroom could easily function as a stylish ensuite, with a walk in shower enclosure and sleek grey gloss furniture from the Adler range providing plenty of storage. Plain white tiles in a brick bond pattern with black grout give this bathroom a subtle industrial feel, whilst the recess has been put to good use as shelving space.
2. On-trend and affordable
As modern bathroom ideas go, this one is both inspirational and affordable, featuring an on-trend patchwork tiled floor that looks simply stunning.
The matching furniture set from the Clarity collection offers simple modern style without breaking the bank—perfect for a starter home or rental property. Meanwhile, the wall hung unit allows the feature floor to appear uninterrupted. A thoughtful display of pictures and treasured objects is a recent bathroom trend, reminding us of our travels and adventures.
3. Hotel chic
Whilst staying overnight in a hotel may be off the schedule for many of us, why not bring that high-end, hotel style to your home?
Nothing says modernity more than a luxurious sunken bath, and the look can be easily achieved with tileable bath panels. With simple yet sophisticated white furniture from the Larsen range, luxurious grey mineral tiles and wood effect shower wall panels, this bathroom is truly opulent. The back to wall toilet offers a clean, minimalist appearance, whilst saving on space and the whole suite is more angular in shape.
4. Wet room wonderfulness
As modern bathroom ideas go, a wet room is one of the most desirable. With easy, step-free access and a seamless style, it’s a look many of us aspire to.
Wet rooms are ideal for those with mobility issues, providing great accessibility. Featuring large format grey tiles from floor to ceiling, this really is a bathroom you could imagine spending time relaxing in. The high windows are a great way to keep the space feeling light whilst maintaining privacy.
The large vanity unit with semi recessed sink from the Roche furniture range provides additional countertop space for all those small essentials, whilst hanging bathroom plants are a great way to add a touch of greenery to your overall décor.
5. Concrete plans
Whilst a little too brutalist for some peoples’ tastes, the urban concrete look is certainly worth considering.
For a slightly more industrial feel, the centrepiece of this beautiful modern bathroom is a vanity unit from the Bergne range. With slim legs, concrete effect grey colour and countertop basin, it makes a bold statement. Meanwhile, the large mirror helps to enhance the feeling of light and space.
6. Mid-century styling
Still hungry for modern bathroom ideas? How about some elegant mid-century styling?
The tapered legs and handle-less push-to-open doors and drawers from the Hale grey gloss furniture range, give this bathroom a chic air, which is reflected in the darker wall finishes.
7. Fitted furniture
Using space in a creative way, how is this for one of our best modern bathroom ideas? Fitted furniture, once the sole preserve of kitchens and bedrooms, is fast becoming a popular option for bathrooms.
With this clever layout, there’s plenty of storage in the form of drawers and cupboards, plus a stylish worktop for a stunning seamless look and feel. From the Reeves Wharfe range, choose from a range of different colours and worktop options. And, of course, the best thing is, you can create the layout that best fits your bathroom.
8. The natural look
For those who prefer a more natural look and feel, this walnut wood furniture from the Wye walnut range is a neat way to create a clutter-free bathroom.
This matching furniture set is the perfect solution to all your storage needs, complete with vanity unit, mirror cabinet and back to wall toilet unit. Walnut is a great look, although you can go darker or lighter with other wood effects like oak.
9. Room for 2
One of the most popular modern bathroom ideas of recent times has been the double basin, allowing 2 people to undertake their daily routines simultaneously.
This twin basin vanity unit features an urban-chic look and the wall hung design leaves the floor space clear for easy cleaning. Wooden wall panels and flooring, plus a selection of trailing plants, give this bathroom an on-trend tropical style.
10. Natural elements
Combining organic touches like rustic wood finishes and soft, curved shapes, this contemporary look from the Burton collection is a real antidote to the trappings of modern life.
With wood effect shower wall panels, the showering area presents a more natural appearance, whilst further wooden elements, like the bath caddy, vanity unit and stool, add warmth.
