With the coronavirus and ensuing lockdowns upending everyone’s lives, people have spent much more time in their homes in the past year or so. Consequently, they are also placing much more importance in the comfort and functionality of their living spaces. Bathrooms in particular have become a space in which to relax and seek refuge from the day’s frustrations. As a result, people are adding amenities to make their time there much more enjoyable. Expect to see these bathroom design trends more and more in 2022 as people look to remodel their bathrooms while adding a bit of style.

Quartz Countertops

Quartz’s popularity is due to its many advantages. It resists staining and scratching, and it’s also very easy to maintain. Therefore, it’s become one of the top countertop choices for bathrooms nowadays. As a non-porous surface, it’s also more resistant to bacteria, which can be very helpful in damp areas.  People tend to favor lighter finishes for a warmer feeling and the ability to pair it with natural looking materials.

Backlit Vanity Mirrors

According to Houzz, more than three-quarters of homeowners are opting for backlit models for their new vanity medicine cabinets. It has the advantage of providing ambient lighting without adding glare or reflections. It can also be used as a nightlight when dimmed.

They’ve become popular for minimalist bathroom designs because you don’t need to add vanity lighting around the mirror. Some people are taking the concept a step further by going with smart mirrors which offer Bluetooth audio, voice adjustable brightness, and even a calendar and clock display. Try a smart vanity mirror for the ultimate in decorative and functional design.

Floating Vanities

Due to being easily customizable and very functional, floating vanities have become a common feature in many contemporary master bathrooms. Indeed, their space-saving storage solutions have made them a popular option for bathrooms of any style.

Many people like the fact that they can choose from complete units with a countertop, sink, and storage base or partial sets or even completely separate pieces. Wall-hung vanities also make it easier to clean bathroom floors. And because of their versatility, floating wall-mounted vanities are perfect for master bathrooms with either single or dual sinks.

Smart Toilets

Another bathroom design trend which used to be a costly luxury is the smart toilet. These kinds of toilets have started to catch on because they have cleaner lines and less exposed plumbing than more traditional models. Therefore, they are easier to clean and maintain. They also feature hands-free components like self-closing lids and touch-free flushing, which are increasingly important in a post-pandemic world. Some units even have self-cleaning technology, such as bacteria-killing light under the lid.

Large-Format Wall Tiles

As far as bathroom walls are concerned, tiny mosaic tiles are now a thing of the past. People are choosing larger format tiles for a different look and fewer grout lines, which means less surface to clean. Many people find it easier to match up larger tiles with natural stone and stone-look materials. Along with larger tiles and slab wall coverings, expect to see other variations such as nontraditional subway tiles in different sizes, textures, and colors.

Heated Flooring and Natural Wood-Look Tiles

The trend these days is for natural looking materials that are easy to clean and resistant to moisture and bacteria. As a result, ceramic and porcelain have become some of the top sellers for bathroom floors. People like them because they can easily mimic natural hardwood finishes and high-contrast marbles.

For a bit more luxury, some people are adding heated floors, so they can walk through their bathrooms without needing slippers. Using different textures and earthy tones in bathrooms can make the space feel less sterile and cold. It’s all about achieving a more natural, organic style that can add a feeling of warmth and comfort.

If you need some inspiration, try some of these bathroom décor trends for functional, unique designs that are perfect for total bathroom renovations or even quick room updates.
