Looking to do some renovations? 2022 is the year of the bathroom. Whether you are giving your ensuite an overhaul or creating the perfect family bathroom for your household to fight over, there are lots of designs and trends you could aim for.
The initial step to any renovation is to find out what part of the area you will like to improve — Is it the walls and floor? The accessories? Or the equipment.
According to a guide by The Plumbing Store, there are minimal bathroom renovations that do not require a high budget such as changing the bathroom taps or adding some accessories like bathroom rail or toilet paper holder. You must analyze first where you want improvements to determine your overall budget for the project.
Here are some of the most popular we will see in 2022!
This is possibly the easiest of trends as it does not actually require you to change the room, merely add something to it. A lot of people are slowly beginning to add plants and other types of greenery to their bathrooms and it makes for a unique and interesting space.
There are many types of plant that thrive in a damp and humid space like a bathroom. Add in some pots on your countertops, or even consider a hanging basket above your bath. Both could be stylish ways to add some of your favorite plants.
Make sure to choose low-maintenance ones if you do not have the greenest of thumbs. They are also great for improving the air quality within your home, helping the bathroom smell better, and giving you a small oxygen boost. It is one of the easiest ways to transform your bathrooms without having to lift a single tool!
Simple white tiles are out. 2022 will be about creating bathrooms that are clear, clean, but never clinical. One of the easiest ways to achieve this effect will be with a statement wall. One of the most popular suggestions is to place a marble-effect material (unless you want to stretch for real marble, of course) on one wall. It will help to draw the eye and will create a beautiful space for your home.
Another option that might appeal to you is to use a mural or a statement wallpaper to catch the attention of a visitor. There are plenty of water-resistant options out there that could help you to create something unique and special in your home. With the right choice, you could easily create a bathroom that is unlike any other that you have been in before.
One of the biggest changes we have seen in the past few years has been the introduction of walk-in showers and wet rooms. People are choosing to have these large and luxurious places to shower over a bath. Even in a fairly small bathroom, if you sacrifice the space for a bath you have a lot of room for a good-sized shower.
If you want to create a stunning wet room or walk-in shower, you need to make sure that the room is ventilated properly. They can quickly become very steamy and humid, and if not cared for correctly can be a place where mold grows faster than you might imagine. A typical homeowner’s policy usually does not cover mold damage, so you need to make sure that your wet room is properly ventilated so this is not an issue for you.
Since we are moving away from the clinical white bathrooms, that also means that we are moving away from some of the materials that are used in their creation. Many people are choosing to opt for more natural materials to create their dream bathrooms. This can make for a very relaxing and luxurious room.
Popular choices include wood and stone. There are plenty of woods that will tie into your bathroom when treated properly. One popular choice is bamboo – and you could even carry it over from the wood used throughout your bathroom to your towels and bathmats too!
Mixing Time Periods
Finally, one style that we will see arise in 2022 for bathroom renovation is that of the mixing of time periods. Take something from one style and mix it with another and you have something unique and eye-catching for your bathroom.
As an example, a claw-foot bathtub never goes out of style. It is something that many people would love to see in their homes at some point. Why use an old-fashioned tap with it though, when you could have something sleek and modern? The reverse works as well – you could have a beautiful modern walk-in shower that makes use of old-fashioned taps and showerheads. Experiment and mix and match to find combinations that are wholly unique to your style.
Bathrooms are often overlooked compared to other parts of your home where most think they can squeeze in more personality. However, this is not the case at all. There are several ways that you can give your bathroom a makeover and make it a relaxing and high-end space where you are happy to spend time. Think about the updates that you would like to see in your home and bring them to fruition in 2022! The bathroom might be the perfect place for you to make your start.
