Bathroom Trends for 2022

…….bathroom trends

Whether building a new home or renovating one that’s outdated, it is important to keep up-to-date on the latest trends when deciding the details of your design. All white kitchens and open-concept floor plans are all the rave, but one room people aren’t talking about is the bathroom. In this article, we discuss the latest bathroom design trends and share inspiration to help you create a bathroom that is trendy and unique to you.

Walls & Floors

You have a few options for your bathroom walls including paint, wallpaper, and shiplap. Making use of wallpaper for your powder bathroom is super trendy and an easy way to add personalization to the bathroom most of your guests will be using. There are tons of different textures and designs, you are sure to find the perfect wallpaper to fit your design taste. If you’re a Joanna Gaines fan, like most of us, using shiplap in your bathroom is trendy yet timeless. This is a great way to create an accent wall or ceiling that will catch your eye and elevate your space and can be super easy to DIY. Paint is a safe choice for any bathroom, as it will set the tone of your design. Carry out neutrals in the bathroom to tie your home design together or set the tone with a little color.

When choosing flooring for a bathroom that is on your main level, it is best to use the same material that is in the rest of your home. Obviously, carpet is not a very trendy or practical choice when it comes to the bathroom, so in this instance, your best bet is to choose a tile that matches the rest of your home’s design. Marble is very popular, but can be expensive and hard to maintain. Porcelain can have the same look, and cuts costs down with lower maintenance involved. Another popular choice for those that like the hardwood look but don’t want to risk the water damage, is choosing a tile that is made to look like hardwood.

A vanity is a large piece to your bathroom design and therefore will make a big impact on the overall look and feel of your bathroom. If you’re looking to really upgrade your space in 2022, be sure to include a high-quality bathroom vanity; one with two sinks is ideal due to the functionality and the stylish look it will add to your space. This year a lot of people are using their vanity to add a statement color to their design–blues and greens are very popular. Whether you go the route of adding a splash of color, or keep things more classic with a solid wood vanity, updating this fixture is sure to take your design to the next level. Vanities come in various different shapes and sizes so ultimately you’ll want to choose one that fits your lifestyle while still adhering to today’s trends.

Lastly, select trendy hardware to complete your vanity design and tie in other elements in your bathroom. Matte black and gold are two finishes that are very popular and classic. Either choice is trendy, so choose the one that fits your style best to give your bathroom a completed look.

Showers & Tubs

Include a walk-in shower and large soaking tub in your design. A walk-in shower is extremely popular and functional, and including two shower heads or even a rainfall shower head will appeal to many 2022 bathroom design trends. Choose a detailed tile for your floor, pulling in pops of color from your vanity and decor. A glass door will also give your space a sleek look while showing off your beautiful shower tile.

A free standing tub is another super trendy item, and can be great for those who want to prioritize self-care this year. A bathtub is the perfect place to get away and relax after a long day and if you have a large window, that is the perfect place to put your tub. Clawfoot and copper tubs are very popular and will enhance your design as a focal point in your bathroom.


Bringing plants into your home design can have so many benefits, visually and aesthetically. Choose greenery that is both visually appealing and has health benefits like eucalyptus to give your bathroom an updated look and feel. Don’t worry – if you don’t have a green thumb, there are many faux plant options. They look just as good and require no maintenance whatsoever. Either way, greenery will give your bathroom a spa-like feel and appeal to this year’s trends.

Vintage pieces are another buzzing element and will make your bathroom one-of-a-kind this year. You can find vintage items such as mirrors, faucets, light fixtures, and other decorative pieces that will give your space a lot of character and uniqueness. Mixing your vintage items with newer pieces can give your space an updated feel while staying on trend. Mirrors are one of the best investments and choosing a circular mirror or one with a unique frame will keep up with the most popular trends going into bathroom design today.

Last, but not least, is to choose lighting and hardware for your new design. You can go with a beautiful chandelier over your bathtub or a large rattan fixture in the center of the room. These will be statement pieces in your bathroom and will tie in all the design elements included in your space.


People are going crazy with organization after watching shows like The Home Edit on Netflix where they use clear bins and other containers to keep things neat in closets, pantries, and even refrigerators. Keep this trend going into your bathroom too with organization under your vanity and in your linen closet. Not only are bins and labels a hot topic, they are also super functional. Plus, they create a place for all of your belongings. This makes it easy for you and the rest of your family to keep things organized.

Updating your bathroom is the perfect way to start the new year and can really add value to your home. Consider these trends mentioned above and carry them out through the rest of your home to create a cohesive design flow.
