The bathroom is probably the most important room to consider, besides the kitchen, if you’re interested in updating your home. After all, it’s where your morning begins, so its aesthetic can influence your mood for the entire day. You want it to be as inviting and cheerful as possible yet also functional. Whether you’re updating your bathroom with a fresh pop of color or building something completely new, you’ll want your new bathroom to reflect not only your tastes but your lifestyle. Are you updating a powder room, master bath, or a second bathroom? It’s important to understand the feel you want to bring to each space. A couple might desire a more luxurious spa bath, or a family with kids may want a bathroom that has a more fun but functional vibe. The pandemic gave us more reasons to make the spaces in which we spend the most time as attractive and functional as possible. Whatever your bathroom style is, you’re sure to find it in this spring’s 2022 bathroom trends. Americans have been spending more time at home these last two years and crave more comfort and style than ever. Need some inspiration before you begin your bathroom project? Then let’s look at what’s trending in bath design for spring 2022:
- Bold Wallpaper
The use of bold, bright and dramatic wallpaper is an exciting trend for 2022. You can select from a variety of looks, from florals and tropical prints to trompe l’oeil to modern geometric patterns and architectural motifs. Have fun with large murals depicting natural scenes or add drama with an even darker floral wallpaper. Place wallpaper behind sinks and vanities or dress an entire wall to add color and create visual interest.
- Mixing Vintage and Modern
Mixing vintage and modern design is one of the hottest trends in bathrooms today. To create the look, pair a vintage tub with a modern, sleek chrome faucet, and try bold floral wallpaper or paint as a backdrop for an elegant modern vanity. This mix and match pairing of vintage and modern styles will give your bathroom a unique and elevated look.
- Spa-Inspired Baths
More time spent at home has created a need for more spaces to relax. And what could be more comfortable than a bath with a spa-like feel? Think relaxing luxury with hydrotherapy baths and rainfall showers, steam rooms, and accessories like scented candles, faux fur rugs and crystal chandeliers for an even more luxurious spa experience.
- Bringing the Outside In
Get back to nature in the privacy of your bathroom by adding a sprinkling of plants and greenery all around you. Plants have the power to enhance any space and infuse it with a calming effect. Position greenery near the window or tub, and to complement the look, paint the walls and vanity a soothing color of green.
- Minimalist Design
When thinking about decorating in a minimalist style, less is always more. A hallmark of minimalist design is blending neutral tones with light wood and white textures. Chrome fixtures pair well with white walls and neutral-toned flooring in a free-form white bath to make the space look even more spacious, inviting and expensive.
6. Marble Luxury
Shiny and classic, marble is an elegant natural stone that can make any bath, or any room in the home for that matter, look expensive. The latest trend we see in spring 2022 is marble used as backsplashes, wall décor, flooring and even on vanities to create visual interest and to add an even more luxurious feel to your space.
- Gold Glam
The use of gold elements in the bathroom is a current trend that we hope never ends. Gold tones sparkle with light and blend well with everything in the room, including walls and flooring. Gold faucet handles, drawer pulls, light fixtures, and accessories like soap dispensers and tissue boxes will give any bath a more decadent, glamorous feel.
- Floating Vanities
For most of us, the vanity is where we begin our morning routine. This stylish organizer holds all our morning essentials to start our day off right. Floating vanities are a hot trend, offering style and space-saving design. Available in all shapes, sizes, and colors, they attach to the wall but do not extend to the floor. The perfect way to update your bath, floating vanities enhance any bathroom with sleek modern style.
