Looking for the latest bathroom trends to inspire your space? Whether you're planning to completely renovate your bathroom this year or tweak it with a few cosmetic changes, the future of bathroom trends is the rise of the 'spathroom.'
Bathrooms are often an overlooked part of the home, as they're generally not as enchanting or Instagram-able as other spaces. However, the Coronavirus has had a monumental impact on interior design - shifting the needle on home trends and shaping our design choices, and bathroom design is no exception.
In fact, bathrooms will be bigger than ever in 2022. With new and inviting colours, textures, and styles entering this once simple and practical space, meaning you can be more expressive in your scheme than ever before.
If you're anxious about committing to a bathroom revamp, it's worth considering that most bathroom trends don't tend to be such a flash in the pan as in other rooms of the house. But if you'd prefer to start smaller, weave in stylish accents like low-maintenance plants, vibrant window treatments and plush towels, and you have a picture-perfect space that offers the serenity you need to start and end your day.
Take inspiration from the top bathroom trends of 2022 to elevate your space to new levels of interior design. To get you inspired to refresh your bathroom in 2022 - Lilla Rugs have scoured the internet to share the top trends worth keeping on your radar.
50 SHADES OF GREEN

Expect to see a lot more green in 2022. Green shades have increased in popularity throughout the house, with sage green proving more popular year after year. So, it was only a matter of time before this nature-inspired hue began to influence bathroom trends too.
Bathroom colour schemes can come and go, but the Green bathroom colour palette keeps growing, with several micro-trends appearing beneath it. From the rich jewels of Emerald green to the earthy grey-green of Sage, there is a growing demand for green in all variations.
Green is a noticeable choice for a bathroom too. Especially in warmer toned varieties. The colour looks great against brass and copper finishes and leans into creating a natural connection in a bathroom space, bringing you back to nature.
Introducing colour into a bathroom is easier than ever too. We love the versatility of green, a perfect fit for modern and traditional bathrooms alike.
PLENTY OF PLANTS

It’s no secret that plants have become increasingly popular in home design - this is not excluding our bathrooms. More time spent at home means there's a need to feel connected with nature to reduce stress and anxiety.
Retreating into a relaxing space beautifully dressed with plants can allow you to feel nurtured, and nothing quite emulates the spa experience like biophilic design. The concept refers to the idea that there are ways to bring us back into contact with nature in a domesticated space.
With a heavy focus on bringing a variety of plants inside, you can adopt a biophilic approach and styling the bathroom with a range of natural elements can create a calming spa-like sanctuary to be enveloped.
In 2022 we will see people incorporating subtle but striking statements into their bathrooms - with natural and organic elements. From marble-effect to onyx-effect, wonderful stone patterns make their mark in the world of tiles.
While the use of stone in the bathroom is nothing new, luxury stone slabs will prove more popular than ever in bathroom and kitchen trends. Natural stone features in bathrooms are refined, classic, sophisticated, and will always stand the test of time.
This design choice is sure to buck the categorisation on any trend list. You can create a feeling of luxe opulence by using materials that contrast with each other to build visual and tactile texture in the room.

Have you ever thought about wallpapering your bathroom? If not, 2022 could be the year to give it a go. Wallpaper might have been an odd choice for a bathroom ten years ago, but with modern vinyl wall covering ideas now widely available, wallpaper in a bathroom is common.
Statement walls are no longer there to just wow guests in entrance rooms. With bathrooms now less confined to clinical all white walls and a contemporary feel throughout - bright and bold wallpaper will prove popular this year, adding a playful pop to otherwise serene bathrooms.
