Japandi style has accelerated in bathroom designs worldwide. The minimalist craze featuring natural textures will most definitely continue into 2022 and beyond.

Japandi is a combination of Japanese designs with simplistic and modern features from Scandinavian styles. The look can easily be incorporated into any sized bathroom as the main focus is clean lines with a blend of matt and natural textures.

Create an elegant contrast with bamboo, stone, or wood alongside matt black features such as the Arezzo Wall Mounted Basin Tap and Arezzo Towel Ring.

Complete the full Japandi look by incorporating unique styles of plants, chairs, and accessories. We recommend the Wenko Bahari Bamboo Towel Ladder and Wenko Bamboo Laundry Bin to create a quaint and practical space that feels cozy yet inviting.

2. Green Tiles

Green tiles have been an upward trend in recent years, but with more of us opting for statement looks in bathroom designs, Granley Rustic Green Gloss Wall Tiles are an obvious winner to create the ultimate WOW factor!

Green is an ideal colour for a bathroom as it can easily be coordinated with neutral colours and textures to remind us of the great outdoors.

3. Wallpaper

Wallpaper is a style staple in many homes and has been for decades! However, wallpaper has become very popular within small bathrooms and cloakrooms as of late. Thanks to its unforgettable impact, wallpaper immediately transforms any space that would normally feel small and look quite boring.

Wallpaper is available in many textures, patterns, and colours, so the world is your oyster when deciding on the perfect pick. Coordinate towels and taps for a clean and uniform effect.

Top Tip - Only consider if your bathroom is not exposed to a lot of water, as this will help avoid any peeling from moisture and humidity.

4. Brushed Brass Traditional Towel Rails

Brushed brass traditional towel rails were usually only found within luxury hotel bathrooms. However, they’ve been deemed one of the latest trends for bathrooms. Towel rails are practical and super stylish within old-fashioned-style homes and thus have been added to the top bathroom trends of 2022 .

Brushed brass traditional towel rails are not just easy on the eye. They act as a storage component, provide warmth and maintain hygiene by decreasing the chance of damp growth.

By delivering warm, snug towels after a shower or bath, traditional towel rails provide a pampering experience to enjoy every day.

5. Fluted Shower Screens

Fluted shower screens are one to watch for bathroom ideas in 2022 as they take walk-in showers to the next level. Their unique appearance adds sophistication and practicality as the vertical grooves act as an art deco feature as well as an element of privacy.

Brushed Brass Shower Screens were ranked in last year’s bathrooms trends so this year take it one step further with the Arezzo Fluted Brushed Brass Screen.

6. Wood Features

Wood is an iconic material that instantly brings warmth to any space so there’s no shock it’s clutched a spot in this lineup.

Whether it’s flooring, shelving, or a vanity unit, wood can be incorporated into your bathroom in more ways than you think. It’s a versatile material that has the power to make a statement and work with bathroom features, old and new.

We recommend the Milan Industrial Storage Unit to add a rustic tone to your bathroom. The sleek design with matt black framing oozes bliss with plenty of storage space for a clutter-free bathroom.

Another way to incorporate wood into your space is with the Beacon Black Wood Effect Floor Tiles. They’re designed to replicate the look and texture of natural wood and are an ideal solution to achieve the Japandi style that we mentioned earlier.

7. Ceiling Mounted Shower Heads

The “outdoor feel” is popular in new bathroom designs. A simple way to keep up with the trend is by opting for a ceiling-mounted showerhead.

Ceiling mounted shower heads can also be known as rain shower heads due to the way water naturally drops like rain. By introducing a rain shower head into your daily routine, you’ll sense a feeling of calmness as well as an aesthetically pleasing display, due to its compact structure.

The Grohe Rainshower Cosmopolitan Head Shower is an ideal solution to upgrade your showering experience, it offers 4 spray patterns to suit your preferences and revitalize your skin.

8. Ambient Lighting

Another simple way to stay on trend without renovating your entire bathroom is to introduce ambient lighting. Ambient lighting provides ultimate intimacy that gives your space a unique glow and a sense of sanctuary.

The stylish Revive Black Braided Cable Pendant Light features a sleek black nickel finish and can be positioned beside your mirror or vanity unit to form a balanced and uniform look.

Symmetry within a bathroom provides calmness and introducing an exposed pendant light will allow you more space to include other bathroom accessories.

9. Colourful Baths

White baths have always been the go-to, however, on-trend bathroom designs include a different approach. Colourful baths are a simple way to express your individual style and instantly make your space your own.

10. Smart Toilets

As technology is an unquestionable part of our everyday lives, it's no surprise it has made its way into bathrooms. With many of us spending more time at home due to the recent pandemic, smart toilets are our pick for those wanting to get ahead on 2022 bathroom designs.

With endless beneficial features to suit your personal preferences, we recommend the Metro Smart Toilet. By having the choice of water, air, and seat temperate, this smart toilet is guaranteed to provide users with the ultimate bathroom experience.

Although smart toilets are more expensive than regular toilets, they save you time and money in the long run and provide an ultra-hygienic experience every time.

11. Wall Mounted Taps

Whether you're sprucing up an old basin or completing a full renovation, wall-mounted taps create a luxurious and lasting impression. The simplistic design of the Arezzo Round Matt Black Wall Mounted Basin Tap saves space for you to introduce other features to your bathroom.

12. Deep Blue Tones

In the past, lighter blue tones have taken over bathrooms, such as sky blue, turquoise and baby blue. However, in recent months deeper blue has become a rising favourite due to the rich undertones that bring a glamourous feel to a bathroom.

Available with brushed brass or chrome handles, the Arezzo Matt Blue Combination Unit is an ideal choice. The bright contrast of deep blue against white creates a dramatic and luxurious effect that also feels calming and mesmerizing, reminding us of the ocean.

13. All-in-One Shower & Bath Design

In the past, many of us have come up with our own space-saving ideas to comfortably fit a bath and shower into a bathroom. However, a rising trend of the ‘wet room and bath design’ seems to effortlessly solve this issue.

As wet rooms are easily accessible and super simple to clean, positioning a freestanding bath behind a shower screen is deemed to be a design triumph.

Regardless of your dimensions, you can fulfil this look with a Wetroom Pack or Arezzo Matt Black Framed Wetroom Screen alongside a dainty freestanding tub, such as the Snowden Modern Freestanding Bath.

14. Bathroom TV’s

As mentioned earlier, smart products are going from strength to strength. Smart TVs make bathing a luxurious and relaxing experience allowing you to catch up on your favourite TV shows.

ProofVision Smart TVs are waterproof, ultra-thin and available in a range of colours and sizes to fit your required space. The clever anti-fog function means wiping down your screen will not be an added task.

LED mirrors are a trendy addition to bathrooms and have been for a while now. They’re elegant and functional, however, round LED mirrors can fit into smaller spaces and have a softer, more subtle appeal than rectangular styles.

With warm and cool lighting options to choose from, the Arezzo LED mirror will immediately add practicality and a touch of luxury to your space.

19. Terrazzo Tiles

Updated and modernized versions of retro materials are making a comeback thanks to their authentic and distinctive style. Terrazzo was originally designed as simple and affordable flooring but has progressed to an on-trend necessity in modern bathroom designs.

With many colour schemes to choose from, terrazzo tiles are easily coordinated with taps, towel rails, and tumblers for a clean and effective look.

20. Wall Hung Toilets

Wall-hung toilets are a raging trend in recent years thanks to their beneficial structure.

If you’re short on space, wall-hung toilets are an ideal solution without compromising on style or budget. Without the additional bulk of a visible cistern, wall-hung toilets take up much less space. Full access around and beneath the pan eases cleaning and creates a minimalist, effortless look.

22. Double Vanity Units

We couldn’t let double vanity units slip from our top bathroom trends for 2022!

Double vanity units are grand and welcoming due to their attractive yet practical counter space. They ease everyday grooming tasks to create a more enjoyable and efficient experience.
