2022 Bathroom Trends That Work With Every Decorating Style

2022 Bathroom Trends That Work With Every Decorating Style

In 2022, many homeowners will be addressing their outdated bathrooms with harder working fixtures and stylish accents to help provide a comfortable and practical refresh.

Maybe you want to improve accessibility in the bathroom for members of the household with additional needs, or you just want to update a rather boring and vanilla bathroom, we have a look at some of the trends for 2022.


1. Updated Sinks and Touchless Taps

According to the bath trends report from Houzz, new taps are the most popular upgrade for baths, and with a focus on hand-washing over the past two years, sinks are seeing more switchouts than in previous years.

Homeowners are seeking to make bathroom spaces more inviting and stylish but also have improved functionality. Touchless features are ideal for boosting hygiene in the bathroom.


2. Organic Style

An increased emphasis on natural materials and warm, earthy colours, and plenty of plants has emerged as a major theme in 2020 and is now the most-wanted bathroom style. Accents complementing this style will continue to pop up in bath designs, especially those that embrace a connection to nature.

There is also increased interest in skylights to help bring in more natural light into bathrooms, as well as the use of earthy greens and watery blues.


3. Modern Influences

Regardless of the overall style of the home and bathroom, there will be an increase in the use of modern accents. Even though most kitchens and bathrooms today include a personalised mix of elements, adding a modern touch is increasingly popular. A fun, modern light fixture can add a 
dynamic element of surprise.


4. Integrated Technology

Technology has made its way into bathrooms, with smart toilets and touchless taps increasing in popularity. 2022 may see the integration of digital wall-mounted interfaces, mobile apps, and tech-savvy controls for showers. Underfloor heating will also continue to gain popularity.

Also popular for 2022 are bath ventilation upgrades. Humidity- and steam-sensing exhaust fans, which work without the user having to turn them off or on, are popular investments that practically and sustainably replace older ventilation.


5. Universal Design Upgrades

Many of the trends being reported are connected to universal design principles, as many homeowners address the needs of specific members of the household, such as ageing family members, young children, or people with disabilities.

As inclusive design becomes more mainstream, homeowners have an increased awareness of adaptations needed in their own homes.

Curbless showers, handheld showers, and shower seats are seeing a rise in popularity. While these features are often included in luxury showers, they're also aligned with universal design.


Barrier-free showers with no curb are becoming the norm in both new construction and even remodelling, as they are no longer thought of as 'wheelchair-accessible' showers, but simply showers accessible for all.
