Bathroom Design Trends for 2022

Bathrooms tend to be overlooked in a home because they’re not as glamorous (or as Instagram-able) than other spaces. However, Navigate Bathrooms have a different opinion. Bathrooms are a room that almost everyone uses. Therefore, the design of your bathroom is as important to us as your living room. If you’re thinking that 2022 will be the year when you make the effort to upgrade or build your bathroom, then here are the top bathroom trends you will want to follow. 

Want to know how you can design an on-trend bathroom? Find out with the Perth custom bathroom renovation packages from, Navigate Bathrooms. 



Bring the Outdoors Inside with plenty of Plants  


The design trend to bring the outdoors in has grown exponentially since the beginning of the pandemic. We aim to bring out the revitalising and rejuvenating aspects of natural surroundings indoors. 

The bathroom can be decorated with natural elements such as pampas grass and houseplants to create a relaxing spa-like environment. 

Our interiors often feature plants to style our homes. This is not only because they are a focal point that can be used to define a space, but also because of their ability to improve air quality. 

Green will remain a popular choice for bathroom tiles in 2022. You can create new styles with the huge selection of green bathroom tile designs, furniture, and bathroom ceramics in vibrant shades. Green is soothing and harmonious in soft tones, but bolder, darker shades can bring out individuality and depth. 




Japanese minimalism meets Scandinavian functionality with the popular “Japandi” home trend. It will soon make its way to our bathrooms in 2022. 

Japandi is a modern bathroom concept that embraces richer colour palettes, sleek styling, incredible functionality, and newfound comfort for a feeling of Hygge at home. 

The main features of Japandi design include neutral main colour palettes accented by black fixtures and brassware. Japandi design emphasises wood and nature while still maintaining functionality. 


Be Bold with Colour 


The opposite of Japandi. Bold colours are a general trend for the home as more people embrace bolder, more expressive design choices. The evidence is in Google’s increase of 5,000% searches for “maximalist Interior Design” over the past year. 

 The rapid adoption of colour in bathrooms has been remarkable to me. Has shown us how much we love our bathrooms and how fun we are with them. 

Coloured pottery returns with a vengeance. It may not be avocado green or whisper red, which were so in fashion in the 80s/90s, but we are seeing a huge demand for statement-coloured ceramic sinks. 


The Spathroom 


As we strive to create a luxurious home sanctuary, there will be a growing interest in “spathrooms,” the spa-inspired bathroom.  

Walk-in showers are becoming more popular than baths. People are also shifting away from smaller, less spacious cubicles to larger and more expansive enclosures. 

Spa-inspired bathrooms are becoming more popular as people spend more time at home. 

 A minimalist design, low lighting, and luxurious baths are the keys to creating a spa-inspired bathroom. The home spa trend is all about mood. Natural materials, neutral colours, and clean lines are essential. 


Integrated Technology 


The popularity of touchless faucets and smart toilets continues to increase. Technology is now integrated into bathroom designs to provide more comfort and efficiency. This includes mobile apps, digital wall-mounted interfaces, and tech-savvy controls for showers. 

For 2022, bath ventilation upgrades are also very popular. Popular investments that replace outdated ventilation, such as steam-sensing and humidity-sensing exhaust fan, are easily installed and sustainable. Other connected products, such as mirrors and scales on a smaller scale, will slowly make their way into your bathroom. 


Improved Vanity Lighting 


A growing number of homeowners are installing new light fixtures in their bathrooms to make them brighter. Black and gold finishes will continue to be popular stylish accents, while white glass is also on the rise as we move away the Edison-style filament bulb. Self-lit vanity mirrors continue to be a popular option for brightening baths. However, there is also a clear trend toward sustainable LED lighting. 


Minimalist Mood  


The leading bathroom layouts today are minimalistic, but not sterile. Clutter is long gone, and bathrooms are no longer a chaotic mess.  

A bathroom should feel spacious and open from an architectural perspective as well as visually. Make sure to regularly clean out your bathroom. Hang your towels on hooks and bars. Keep the patterns minimal. It will make your room seem larger if you have a pedestal- or wall-mounted sink instead of a bulky vanity. You can also use a clear shower curtain rather than a glass door and reflective surfaces such as glossy ceramic tiles on a large scale. 


Marvellous Marble  


Marble has been a recurrent trend in interiors for the past few decades. Marble’s natural, crisp appearance and delicate patterning add visual interest to your home while keeping it minimalist, luxurious, and stylish. Marble tiles can be used on your walls to make a statement, or you can use them as luxury flooring. 



How many years should a bathroom last? 

The average life expectancy of a bathroom is about ten years. After that, it will probably need some maintenance. However, it’s possible to make this last even longer if it is properly maintained. It is only natural to want to do something different every now and then. Therefore, the 10-year-mark can be used as a benchmark when thinking about long life expectancy. 


How can cheaply can my custom bathroom be upgraded or designed?  

A bathroom can be modernised inexpensively by just painting it. This could be the wall, ceiling, or floor. You can also try bolder colours to make it more interesting. An alternative to a full-on renovation is to paint the tiles or use wallpaper. 


Let us help you create a unique bathroom sanctuary. Navigate Bathrooms are here to focus on the design and values of your bathroom renovation package.
