What to watch out for in 2022

Now that we’re all well and truly settled in to the New Year, this is a great time to begin looking forward to what 2022 will bring and what we’d like to accomplish. With more and more of us spending the majority of our time at home, it’s paramount that there is a sanctuary in which people can decompress and pamper themselves in; somewhere to relax and detach from working life. For those who are planning to refresh and renovate their bathrooms, we are here to inspire you with some of our favourite trends we’re expecting to see more of over the coming year.

Go bold

The perfect sanctuary should be an extension of your personality – your individual allure that makes you, you. Gone are the days of unimaginative white and chrome bathrooms, with bold colours, vibrant patterns and contrasting fittings now taking centre stage.

More brands than ever are now offering exciting finishes for almost every type of fixture imaginable! hansgrohe’s FinishPlus collection features, among others, a contemporary Matt White and a sleek Brushed Bronze; GSI’s stunning ceramic sanitary ware is available in a variety of earthy tones; VADO’s awe-inspiring Knurled X Fusion range blends different luxurious finishes to create striking brassware. Frankly, the list could go on forever. What is clear, though, is that the possibilities for customising your bathroom are limitless, so whether you want eclectic or coordinated, there are plenty of products out there for you to express your style.

Be at one with nature

Considering the amount of time spent in the bathroom, it’s crucial to ensure you have a comfortable space in which you can feel invigorated and revitalized. Something that will be certain to introduce a refreshing energy into your bathroom is incorporating plants and natural, organic materials. Combining wooden finishes with a splash of greenery elevates the fresh feeling and creates a relaxing, serene sanctuary for you to go about your daily routines. How much you want to embrace this philosophy is up to you, but even the smallest addition can enhance the mood and rejuvenate the soul.

Get inventive with your lighting

Recently, we’ve noticed a stronger desire for more inventive lighting solutions, ranging from striking illuminated mirrors to subtle lighting beneath wall-hung vanity units. With every bathroom having its own unique charms and quirks, there is no right or wrong answer when it comes to deciding how you’d like to light up your space. LED framed mirrors and cabinets have become fixtures in bathrooms up and down the country, while we are seeing a growing demand for sensor-operated lighting and warm, ambient glows defining bathroom fittings.

Blend modern with traditional

With design decisions becoming bolder and less orthodox, it’s no real surprise that a combination of contemporary and vintage styles is something we’re beginning to see more of. The blend of contrasting forms, when done tastefully, can result in an exciting and unique aesthetic – think traditional décor accentuated by a modern, minimal tap; or a contemporary room featuring a couple of charming, classical mirrors.

Raise your glass

Fluted – or reeded – glass is when the glass has vertical grooves, providing a translucent screen that allows light to bathe your shower space while also providing a degree of privacy and separation. These versatile panels are capable of adorning both vintage and contemporary settings alike, with top-quality brands like Roman Ltd and The Shower Lab providing luxurious screens complete with elegant detail to blend seamlessly with your colour scheme of choice.
