2022 Bathroom Trends

If you’re thinking of giving your bathroom a makeover or tackling a complete renovation, then why not take a look at the upcoming bathroom trends for 2022?

Whether you’re looking to create a tranquil environment to come home to at the end of a long day or simply updating an outdated bathroom we've got everything covered.

From bright accent colours and beautifully unique freestanding baths and countertop basins to house plants, we’ve got ideas to suit every budget.

Accent colours

In recent years accent colours have really started to make their way into the spotlight. Creating a wonderful splash of colour, they can make any space, especially a bathroom pop. But you might be thinking, which colours do I use, and can I mix and match? Well, wonder no more.

2022 is going to be all about deep pinks and blues. Now accent colours can be used on something as small as a picture or picture frame but they really come to life when used on a feature wall or matching all your bathroom accessories such as bath mats, towels, and even vanity units.

Deep blue and pink work perfectly together making them a wonderful choice if you intend to mix and match your bathroom colour scheme.

If you’re considering creating a pink, blue, or even combined colour feature wall then you need to think about the materials you use. For a fun family bathroom, you could mix and match different coloured paints, create a mix and match pattern with tiles, or even mix paint and tiles.

However, if you’re looking to create a tranquil adult-only space then less is more. If you choose to use pink for your bathroom walls then consider choosing deep blue or navy accessories such as towels and bath mats to give your bathroom a truly grown-up – adult-only feel.

Green colour palette

After a strong focus on global warming and the environment in recent years, green is set to become a 2022-bathroom trend. Whether that be through the use of house plants (read on to find out more) or simply focusing on a green colour palette, green is set to be on-trend.

If you’re considering adding a splash of green to your bathroom but you’re not sure where to start then firstly consider your budget. You have so many options to decorate a bathroom using a green theme however, you first need to decide how much you can afford to do.

Painted green walls and green wall tiles are a classic way to go but if you’re looking for a more out-there idea then why not consider a green painted bath? They might not be cheap but they will definitely make an impact and create a beautiful statement piece in your bathroom.

House plants

House plants have been flying off the shelves of garden centres for a couple of years and as a bathroom trend for 2022, I don’t see this changing any time soon!

Not only are they perfect for adding a touch of nature to an otherwise artificial environment they’re also a wonderful way of collecting excess moisture from a steamy bathroom and helping to cleanse the air of harmful toxins.

Like all plants, they can also add a splash of colour to your bathroom. Some of the best house plants to choose for adding colour to your bathroom are Croton plants with their vivid red leaves, the beautiful delicate flowers of an orchid, or even a gorgeous peace lily.

Before buying any houseplant there are a couple of things to consider such as the environment the plant will live in and when purchasing a house plant for a family home with either children or pets, be sure to choose a non-toxic option.

Patterned tiles

Pattern in bathrooms is a trend that has come and gone through the years, but it always comes back. So, if you’re debating whether to add patterned tiles to your bathroom then now is the time to do it.

Patterned bathroom tiles come in all different colours, shapes, and sizes making it difficult to decide on one particular style. To start off I would suggest narrowing down your tile size and colour options as well as whether you would like patterned wall or floor tiles. Once you have done this, it will be easier to pick a design.

Luxury bathrooms and suites

One of the main bathroom trends of 2022 is likely to be luxury bathrooms. Whether that be how to give your family bathroom a luxury feel or how to create a tranquil master suite we’re going to discuss the best ways to achieve both.

Luxury countertop and freestanding basins

If you’re looking to move away from the traditional pedestal and built-in vanity unit basins, then look no further than a lavish countertop or freestanding basin.

Countertop and freestanding basins don’t have to be the boring ceramic you see in every bathroom, you can find them in some gorgeous and unusual shapes and materials. If you’re looking for something that stands out then take a look at our range of BC Designs and RAK basins as they really stand out from the competition.

These beautiful designs alone can help a bathroom lacking in style to become truly spectacular, but pair them with a fabulous freestanding bath and you’ll have no problem creating a fantastic tranquil retreat.

Luxury master bathroom

Looking to create a luxurious master retreat? One of the easiest ways to create a tranquil space to enjoy after a long day is to add a truly gorgeous freestanding bath to your master bedroom. Available in a variety of designs such as roll-top, slipper, and even painted baths you’re guaranteed to find the right fit for your master suite.

Pair a freestanding bath with a stunning freestanding tap and you'll be on your way to creating your luxurious master retreat ready for 2022.
