Mar 2022

The new year is here and with it comes a fresh feeling of new beginnings. As you work through those New Year’s Resolutions for 2022, you might find that your bathroom renovation project makes the cut. To help you create the most modern upgrade, we’ve gathered the top three bathroom trends that are sure to take over bathrooms nationwide.

Trend 1: Natural Escape

As the interest in reconnecting with nature continues to rise, trend scouts expect the modern home to bring the best of the outdoors, inside. And we’re here for it. Experts say that a shift to a more natural environment helps to reduce stress and anxiety. What better place to relax in than your bathroom?

From colors to materials, there are many ways to bring the outside in. Our personal favorite is with a collection of houseplants. Not only do houseplants look beautiful, but they’ll also actually improve the air quality, too. Even those with brown thumbs will find plants thrive in the bathroom, thanks to the higher humidity and moisture than other rooms in your home.

Of course, we know that houseplants aren’t for everyone. The good news? Houseplants aren’t the only way design experts recommend incorporating this top trend. Simply focus on using natural materials in your next upgrade. Think organic materials like wood and copper to create a more grounded, modernized space.

Trend 2: High-End Luxury  

Many are seeking a more spa-like experience in the bathroom, complete with premium finishes. Given this interest, experts say we are sure to see an overwhelming push to opulence in the room designated for pampering.

Expect to see an upgraded spin on the statement wall that will wow every time you enter. More than just an accent color like we’ve seen in the past, designers anticipate intricate murals and wall-to-wall marble slabs will adorn bathroom walls. This is an especially gorgeous upgrade when set behind a statement bathtub.

But that’s not the only way to add a little bit of luxury. This trend should take center stage – aka the vanity. 2022 will be filled with chunky countertops made of quality granite and premium quartz.

Keep in mind, you can try this trend even while on a budget. Upgrade fixtures with modern metals to add just a touch of extravagance or accessorize with benches and stools to encourage an indulgent stay.

Trend 3: Alluring Texture

The third and final trend in today’s feature is the biggest change we’ve seen over the past few years. Interior design professionals predict modern bathrooms will move away from minimalist and sleek and welcome intriguing complexities and depth.

What we love about this texture trend is that it can be completely customized. For example, if you love the comfort of nature but also want the regal feel of high-end finishes, in 2022, you can do both. Now is the time to go for a more collected look.

How you incorporate this trend is up to you. From textured wall coverings to hand-hammered nickel sinks, eye-catching light fixtures and retro décor, be flexible yet intentional as you add in a little bit of this and a little bit of that for a look that’s utterly 2022.

This year is predicted to be a year of personal expression, from personal life to professional. And these three trends are reflective of just that. Which trend will you try this year? Let us know on social @Sinkology.
