2022 Trends: top 5 contemporary bathroom ideas

Looking for your next contemporary bathroom idea? Uncover the 5 top contemporary bathroom designs trending for 2022. Whether you’re a fan of the nature-inspired Japandi or take inspiration from more minimalist spaces, discover the top 5 unmissable bathroom trends for 2022...

1. Extreme Minimalism

We’ve met minimalism, now meet extreme minimalism for 2022. Sleek and uncluttered, extreme minimalist bathrooms go one step further, paring back contemporary bathroom ideas to their very bare essentials. Placing emphasis on brassware, authentic finishes are key, with colours such as Chrome, UNION Brass, Brushed Nickel and Carbon Black all sharing the spotlight. Want a look unlike any other? The Unlacquered Brushed Brass finish of our MPRO Industrial collection changes colour over time for a raw and personal design.

Get the look: 

The perfect example of less is more, keep your extreme minimalist bathroom simple. Choose muted neutrals and our Glide II furniture unit in Windsor Oak for a consistently clean aesthetic. Continue the look across your contemporary bathroom idea with our refined MPRO Industrial or UNION brassware ranges for raw and authentic design to enhance the basin, bath and shower. 

2. Japandi Bathroom Ideas

Move over Scandi, here comes Japandi. Renowned for its simplicity, clean lines and warmth, Scandi certainly created a buzz in 2021. Since then, interiors have taken the very best of Scandi and integrated it with Japanese design to give you ‘Japandi’ bathrooms - a contemporary bathroom idea that embraces richer colour palettes, sleek styling and incredible functionality for newfound comfort and a sense of hygge in the home.

Get the look:

Bring your Japandi bathroom to life with the warming finish of our Artist furniture unit in Matt White, complete with a Solid Oak worktop and optional Beech legs to continue the nature-inspired theme. Finish with an OPTIX 10 shower enclosure and matching MPRO brassware in soothing Matt Black or uncomplicated Chrome finish for an altogether sleek contemporary bathroom idea.

3. Botanically Green

Refreshing and revitalising, who doesn’t love green botanicals within a contemporary bathroom idea? With more time spent outdoors, we’ve realised what we’ve been missing indoors - an abundance of nature. Helping to clear the mind, it's no wonder green botanical bathrooms are here to stay, featuring more potted plants, natural materials and flamboyant wallpapers than ever before.

Get the look: 

What says nature-inspired more than the Modern Oak or Steelwood finishes of our Arena furniture unit? For a truly inviting space, use the open design of a walk-in shower to emulate an uninterrupted look of nature. Complete with brassware in Brushed Brass or Matt Black to complement this organic colour palette.

4. Spa Bathroom Ideas

With more time being spent at home than ever before, spa bathroom ideas aren’t going anywhere for 2022. But forget dark colour palettes and obvious extravagance, it’s all about satisfying our obsession with nature. Combine soft tones with marble effect tiles and touches of luxury touches for a naturally light and airy contemporary bathroom idea we’re loving for 2022.

Get the look: 

Embrace comfort with the muted neutrals of our Artist furniture range in Matt White, Cashmere Matt or Storm Grey, topped with our Nepi basin and an assortment of self-care essentials for an altogether luxurious washspace. For a truly indulgent contemporary bathroom idea, opt for a single ended bath with bath screen for bath and shower functionality.

5. Textures in the Home

Bring personality to any space by adding texture to your contemporary bathroom idea. From impressive feature walls to intricate bathroom taps, texture can uplift any contemporary bathroom design with tactile, three dimensional detail for a unique focal point. As we welcome more of the outside in, naturally occurring textures are at the top of everyone's bathroom wishlist, with stone, concrete, wood and marble textures leading the way for contemporary bathroom ideas.

How to get the look? 

Define texture in a way that suits you. Want something subtle? Look no further than our MPRO basin tap with knurled design. For obvious texture, our Infinity furniture unit with Carrara Marble, Marquina Marble or Cement tile fronts is simply perfect. The ultimate statement? Marble tiles or slatted wall panels ensure an unmissable contemporary bathroom idea.
