When thinking through what you’d like to incorporate into your ultimate bathroom renovation, turn to the top 10 trends of the year. These fashionable features will give you the fresh, spa-like space you’re craving.
The Marble Effect
Designers Michael Holmes and Jo Alcorn know that a statement marble is surefire way to bathroom-renovation success. In this Home to Win bathroom renovation, they used a stunning white marble with gold veining on the walls to create a feeling of opulence.
What’s Old Is New
To create a space that’s truly unique, think about pairing old with new — try an antique bathtub next to a sleek, marble-topped vanity or Victorian-inspired hardware with a modern vessel sink.
Jump for Japandi
This bathroom design concept — Japandi — combines Scandinavian and Japanese architectural aesthetics to create calm, minimalist sanctuaries filled with sleek functionality and Hygge-inspired comforts.
Wild Blue Yonder
With both Pantone and Dulux naming blues as 2022’s colour of the year (“Very Peri” and “Bright Skies”, respectively), this calming hue is right on trend. Whether you choose blue bathroom tiles or go blue for a bathroom vanity reno, there are plenty of ways to get the blues (in the best way possible).
Go Big and Go Home
Bathrooms are no longer just a utility — in 2022, they’re a key design feature to the whole house, demanding a large portion of the overall square footage (and budget). In laymen’s terms, bathrooms are getting supersized.
Pulling in inspiration from nature, this trend uses natural materials — think textured tiles, stone and wood — in a variety of combos for a bathroom that feels warm and welcoming.
Take a Seat
In 2022, cushioned benches, tufted chairs and vanity stools are the bathroom accessories of the year. When thinking about a bathroom vanity reno, try to incorporate a small space where you can take a load off and tend to your self-care.
Everything in Its Place
When contemplating a bathroom renovation, think about the function as well as the form — having ample storage is key. While switching up an existing bathroom’s layout may be more expensive upfront, making room for built-in closets, extra shelves and roomy vanities will be worth it in the long run.
Bathroom shower renovations have become a popular choice when embarking on an update. Gone are the small stalls of yesterday — today’s showers (and full-blown wet rooms) are large, luxurious and serious design showstoppers.
Bathrooms in 2022 are getting a techie makeover. From touchless faucets to smart toilets, and wall interfaces to heated floors, almost every element in a bathroom renovation can now be wired for extra convivence, enjoyment and ease.
