Early Spring is the perfect time to get started on those home building and remodeling projects that you’ve been thinking about all winter long! Not only will the new season bring warmer weather and longer days, but spring will also bring a renewed energy and motivation. With the beautiful weather just around the corner, we can feel the itchy anticipation that is creeping in to get those bathrooms in shape and ready for the summer gathering season.
We’re focusing on bathrooms this month because, as one of the most used rooms in your home, it deserves a bit of attention that it likely hasn’t gotten in a while. Not only should it function with the storage, space, and layout you need, it should be stylish, refreshing, and relaxing as well.
Because we know that finding time to stay on top of “what’s what” each year isn’t the easiest or most efficient thing to do, we’ve made it extra easy by curating a great list of the Top Trends for Bathrooms in 2022. These amazing stylish and functional elements will give you the bathroom you have only dreamed of. Create a space that makes sense, boosts your mood, and is beautiful by incorporating these terrific trends!
1. Free standing Tubs
Freestanding tubs are one of the items that are making a big splash (no pun intended). In addition to amazing ambience, they also have therapeutic benefits. The flat-bottom, acrylic soaking tub is a popular choice for homeowners thanks to their varying sizes and styles. Because these tubs are centerpieces of the bathroom, they will definitely showcase your design preferences as well as your personal taste.
2. Storage Cabinets
Storage is evolving from boxy, dark spaces to Homeowners are mixing things up and using both open and closed cabinets and shelving as well as device-centric or task-specific storage. Imagine having a dedicated place for your blow dryer to sit that is conveniently hidden, easily accessed, and near an outlet. With storage options that are more specific to the product or task, people are saying goodbye to rummaging through drawers and cabinets to find what they need and are loving their ease, convenience, and diverse design.
3. Color and Texture
Color and texture are taking front and center in bathrooms this year. Green is still the color trend with blue coming in close behind. Homeowners are choosing beautiful blends of bold, patterned wall covering, smooth, natural stone like marble, fluted for reeded features, and texture rich textiles. Warm colors are also taking the place of some of the cooler tones making the bathroom a sanctuary of contentment.
Heated floors have been on the upswing for a while but as homeowners put more intention into creating a spa-like space, having comfortable flooring is a must-have. These heated floors are also relatively inexpensive and easy to install which make them the element that cannot be skipped.
Many homeowners are choosing homes that they can grow with and live in forever. With the intention to stay a while, many people are incorporating plans that allow them to age in place safely. These projects include choosing the perfect location within the home and then deciding on accessories and fixtures that are assistive and stylish. From grab bars and benches to low or zero-entry walk-in showers, there are so many gorgeous finishes for functional items that make aging in place successful and beautiful.
While these are the bathroom trends we see in 2022, the focus on function, comfort, and style will keep them top of mind for years to come. You deserve a relaxing retreat that is well laid out, beautifully finished, and functionally convenient and these trends check all the boxes.
