The easiest and simplest way of adding colour to your bathroom is by bringing nature indoors. Low-maintenance house plants like Snake Plants, Bird’s Nest Ferns, Monstera, or Pampas Greens not only add greenery, but they are also a great way of purifying the air, absorbing humidity, and creating a calm and serene atmosphere.

2022 is seeing the incorporation of built-in planters, living green walls, and integrated courtyards are just a few of the green-thumb elements being integrated.

Green hues have become increasingly popular throughout the whole house, even including the bathrooms.

2022 is seeing bathrooms becoming tranquil and serene spaces. Japandi, a Japanese minimalism aspect with Scandinavian functionality is quietly making a mark on the scene. It is mesmerizing in appeal, with a calm and serene appeal to the senses.

This contemporary design incorporates a neutral colour palette, sleek styles, and darker fixtures, with exceptional functionality and comfort at the core. There is an emphasis on the usage of wood, brassware, and a deeper connection to nature.

  • Wet Rooms and Walk-in Showers

Another rising trend is the popularity of walk-in-showers over bulky bathtubs. Lazy showers in the bathtubs have become more of a luxury in this fast-paced world.

Since the bath, sink, and shower fit in the same space, it maximizes practicality, convenience, and the best usage of available floor space.

  • Flooring and Tiling options to floor one and all

There is a growing demand for natural, organic materials on floors and walls. Wood, though looks extremely aesthetic, is the wrong choice of material for the bathrooms as its properties would alter because of the humidity content.

This is where Wood-look tiles come in. They are both aesthetically appealing and low on maintenance.

Earthy slates, chevron gradients, and hexagonal patterns are the other flavours of the season.

Using multi-paned tiles is another way of adding interest, and they work well with all kinds of designs – contemporary, minimalist, or Mediterranean.

The usage of intricate wall murals is finding appeal amongst those owners who are looking for a spa-like experience in the comfort of their own bathrooms.

Marble still continues to be a popular choice, with its subtlety and opulence in bringing flair to the bathrooms.

  • Fixtures

Customers are making their choices – clean lines and an unfussy look is what they want, and the trends are a clear reflection of the same.
