Trend #10. Get Comfy! Big Bathtubs & Open Showers
As the bathroom changes, the possibilities for expansion and more space come to mind. In fact, the goal of having more space is oftentimes the number one reason why home owners choose to remodel. This includes the bathroom too! With compact storage options, you give yourself more room to expand on the bath or shower.
The bigger the bathtub, the more space and relaxation will be available to you. Homeowners deserve a place to wind down after a long day, and what better place to do so than their own bathrooms? While Jacuzzi styled tubs aren’t necessarily are popular as they used to be, we’re seeing a shift in preferences to other large tub styles.
Open showers appear to visually increase the size of your bathroom, while also giving it more space and providing convenience for users. Long gone are the days of worrying about slipping over the edge of the tub while you’re trying to get out and dry off. While some may find this design has a lack of privacy, others enjoy the accessible openness and increased shower space.

#12. Stay Warm This Winter With Underfloor Heating Systems
If you bought a pair of slippers just to escape the cold sensation on the bottom of your feet while walking across your bathroom floor; then it might be a good investment for you to consider adding a heating system under your floor. When the temperatures outside are dropping–your wish could become a reality. Underfloor heating can be used with a variety of flooring options like: tile, concrete, vinyl, and wood to name a few. But in a bathroom, the cold tile can transform into a beautiful soothing warm floor. Heating systems not only provide heat, but they can also reduce noise levels and possible allergic reactions since there are no air currents disturbing dust.
More and more technology is being included in bathrooms, which means more small appliances are being integrated. For instance, some luxury bathroom designs now feature a beverage center or under counter refrigerators near the makeup area or vanity for your medicines or organic facial remedies. Or you may find some home bathroom designs featuring warming drawers for linens & robes. Aside from the traditional dryers in the makeup area, you can also have wireless music systems, TV’s, cooling or warming systems, and so on.
The bathroom used to be the place where electric appliances were a no-no. Now, it can rival the kitchen in the number of gadgets and the amount of tech in it. This trend will continue in 2021, especially in master bathroom designs.
