Your typical and affordable vinyl or linoleum bathroom flooring is as relevant and attractive today as ever. With that in mind, bathroom tile continues to make a splash in 2021 as an ageless and practical flooring solution for all bathrooms including powder rooms, master bathrooms, and shared bathrooms. One of the most important things to remember about bathroom flooring is that it has a significant impact on the style and tone of the room so whatever you choose, make sure it integrates well with your overall aesthetic. With that in mind here are some of the top bathroom flooring options for 2021.
Tiles with hardwood design are a very hot trend in bathroom flooring this year. Designed to look like wood planks, these tiles come in a wide range of styles and colours. They may appear like real wood with rustic features or they may provide a contemporary look with gray tones. While these gray and white shades tend to be more popular, you can also choose natural wood tones. These tiles are easy to maintain, versatile, and offer bathroom-specific features such as slip resistance.
Do you ever walk into a bathroom in a heritage home and sit in awe of the beautifully stenciled, black-and-white tile patterns? These vintage tiles are making a comeback particularly in homes with shiplap, wainscoting, or wall paneling. There are a wide range of patterns in black, white, and gray ranging from simple geometric designs to more elaborate motifs. You can have a lot of fun with vintage, stenciled tiles.
Certainly mosaic tiling is nothing new to bathrooms, but they’re making a comeback in 2021. The classic, yet impressive style of mosaics makes an impressive choice for bathroom flooring. You can choose from a range of shapes including square tiles, hexagons, Moroccan tiles, and more. You will also find a variety of colours so you can mix and match and really show your creativity.
When it comes to patterns for tiles and flooring (including the shape of the tile and the designs on bathroom flooring), linear lines seem to have the biggest draw in 2021. Geometric patterns and shapes are very popular right now. Consider how you can use angles and other geometric patterns, such as hexagons, herringbone, and chevrons, to update your bathroom space.
Not specific to the type of bathroom flooring, a major design trend for bathrooms in 2021 is neutral shades, particularly white, gray, and black. Using lighter shades helps to bring space to smaller bathrooms and allows for a little more creativity with other design features in the bathroom. While white, gray, and off-white flooring options are among the most popular, infusing some darker tones or even beige is not uncommon.
