10 Ideas to transform your bathroom in 2022
There are many ways to transform your bathroom, ranging from using different sizes of shower trays, new fixtures and fittings, right down to the simplest of changes like adding plants and scented oils. Here are our 10 ways to transform your bathroom in 2022!
1. Matte black fixtures
Black is good, but matte black is even better. Having fixtures with matte black finishes in your bathroom is a clear statement of intent. It speaks to yourself and anyone else using your bathroom facility of the thoughtfulness, intentionality, and class that went into your bathroom redesign.
2. Go bold with wallpapers
Arguably the most important part of any bathroom remodel is when you give it a piece of you. When you add a dash of character, that makes it stand out from other bathrooms that have been similarly inspired. One of such ways is to use bold wallpapers. Wallpapers are the go-to because they are relatively affordable, easy to install, and you can easily change them as time goes by. You can decide to theme your wallpapers according to the season, and it does not get any more transformative than that.
3. Make a statement with plants
One design input that made an entry in 2021 is the introduction of plants and succulents to the bathroom space. While plants have technically always been used in bathrooms, they grew in number and their application bolder in 2021. 2022 demands that you continue this tradition if you do not already have plants or succulents in your space. Plants are an excellent addition because they look good and purify your air by taking out carbon dioxide and replacing it with oxygen.
4. Vintage furniture
Vintage furniture has a way of making your space look grand. The concept of the old meeting with the new is as old as time and for a good reason. Having vintage (or antique) furniture in your bath space makes it the centre of attention and creates this illusion of timelessness in your bathroom for all to admire.
5. Shower-Bath enclosure
Most homeowners are of the impression that a shower-bath enclosure should only be considered when designing or remodeling small bathrooms. While this is very much true, as the design of this enclosure frees up space in the bathroom, there are more reasons to have one installed. One of which is the simplicity of the design. It reduces the number of bathroom fixtures in your space, and the result is a cosier, functional, minimalist bathroom setup.
6. Bring the outdoors in with you
There is a compromise if you are contemplating having an outdoor shower but do not have the space or are conflicted due to privacy or the lack thereof. You can bring the outdoors into your bathroom, and how you do this is much easier than you would think. The solution is to install large glass doors that open into your garden, so you can still look at the outdoors even when they are closed. You can have the windows stained or laminated, so people on the outside can not look into your bathroom.
7. Invest in a wet room
A wet room is an excellent investment in your bathroom renovation for many reasons. The first is that it looks good compared to the traditional bathroom as fewer fixtures are lying around. Another advantage is the accessibility it affords people living with disability, and how easy it makes cleaning your bathroom.
8. You cannot go wrong with white
Ultimately, whatever colour your bathroom adorns is at your discretion. But I think I can make a solid argument for making it all white. The first is that having an all-white creates the illusion of space as everything looks stretched out and near endless. And the other reason is the luxury and prestige it confers on your space.
9. Scenic murals
These are like the wallpapers discussed above but a little more difficult to change and less affordable as they are paintings on the wall instead of just being glued. But the difference is often clear at first glance. The quality stands out and speaks for itself. And when you have a mural so good on the wall, there’s almost no reason to have it changed or removed.
10. Luxurious lighting fixtures
Lighting brings the whole setup together. You can have natural lighting do all the work for you and saturate your bathroom during the day, but you still need lighting fixtures to put in a shift when it gets dark. You want bespoke lighting pieces that illuminate your space, but you don’t want them whitewashing your bathroom. You should also invest in mood lighting for days when you want to cozy up in your bathroom.
And there you have it. All you need to know as far as bathroom transformations are concerned. Implementing one or more of the bathroom ideas listed above guarantees you to get the bathroom of your dreams. Good luck!
