2022 Bathroom Trends Revealed

Homeowners who are planning on updating their bathroom this year might be starting to think of interior design trends they could incorporate into their home. However, choosing the right style for your washroom can be a minefield, which is why we’ve found the top bathroom looks of 2022 to help.

 

  • Marble

Marble is going to be huge this year, so take a look at marble counters, flooring or even splashbacks in a marbled effect when choosing your features.

Andrew Henry told House Beautiful: “White and grey shades of marble [will be] used in higher-end luxury schemes.”

There are many ways to add marble to your bathroom, whether you opt for vinyl with marbling detail or update your bath panel. You could even use different types of marbled looks in the same room to “build visual and tactile texture”.

 

  • Colourful bathrooms

From monochrome to colour, bright shades will also be a big trend this year. Though the coloured suites of the ‘80s might be a step too far for lots of people, bold colours can be incorporated into bathroom design in many ways.

Darren Allison, manging director at BC Designs, discussed this new aesthetic with Country Living, saying: “The speed at which colour has been adopted in bathrooms has amazed me. It has shown how playful we are as a nation towards our homes and how bathroom design has now become as prominent as other rooms in the home.”

He noted that some people will add colour through painted baths and bold tiles, while others will simply inject a splash of colour with different ceramics.

 

  • Modernise period properties

Period properties have been hot tickets for years, with homebuyers looking for Victorian or Edwardian features to add character to their homes. However, the new trend is to contrast the old-fashioned fixtures and fittings with modern styles.

For instance, you could go for a modern freestanding bath, while still keeping elaborate Victorian-inspired taps.

Mr Allison said combining the two looks will be a “big one for bathrooms” this year, reminding homeowners: “The secret to making it work is in the mix. Just remember, opposites attract! Traditional bath with modern and sleek faucet. Period faucets with a modern-shaped sink.”

 

  • Bring the outdoor in

Bringing the outdoor inside really grew in popularity after the pandemic struck, when people wanted to have more greenery when stuck in their homes for so long. 

Despite now being free to go wherever we wish, we have not let go of this trend – and the best place to inject some greenery into the home is in the bathroom.

There are many house plants you can buy that can create the urban jungle effect without being difficult to maintain, from ferns to rubber plants. This is a simple, but effective, way of updating your bathroom, which can be altered whenever you fancy a change.

Alternatively, those who want a more permanent update to their bathroom could embrace the nature theme and choose new green tiles, walls or flooring. Contrast this with a white suite, modern black taps and luxury shower door handles.
