Spa Style 

Spa-Style Bathrooms Are Havens of Relaxation

Spa-Style Bathrooms Are Havens of Relaxation

A spa-like bathroom is the paragon of comfort and relaxation, especially after a long and hard day at work. If you want to recreate that aura in your home, you’d have to put down big bucks to install a fully-fledged spa. However, you don’t have to go that far to create a place to unwind.

Instead, a more affordable alternative is to recreate the spa aesthetic and feel. This can be achieved with a few small changes that don’t require major construction work and won’t break the bank. The most important thing is knowing what to keep, what to remove, and what to replace. Getting this right is the easiest way to reimagine your bathroom like a beautiful oasis of luxury.

Biophile Additions

There’s nothing more relaxing than an array of beautiful luscious plants in a spa-like atmosphere. A biophilic design adds natural elements to your bathrooms such as houseplants and pampas grass, giving your bathroom the feeling of an organic sanctuary.

With lockdowns forcing us to spend more time at home, it only makes sense to convert our living spaces into a haven of relaxation and serenity. Nature has a way of bringing these qualities into the home, so the biophilic design is a logical step. Plants provide a focal point that punctuates the space and can even improve air quality within the house — always a plus since interior air quality can often be hit and miss. 

Beautiful Murals 

Bold and Colorful Designs Give Your Bathroom a Focal Point

One way to make a quick yet significant change to the aesthetic of your bathroom is with a stylish mural. Murals come in all shapes and sizes and incorporate various colors and motifs that can make for a very beautiful bathroom look. This is certainly a great way to offset the clinical look of plain white walls.

A mural is a bold choice that makes your bathroom design busier but in the best possible way. A statement wall makes for a great focal point and helps to give your bathroom the aura of a relaxing sanctuary away from the world’s problems. What’s best about murals is that there are so many options out there from all conceivable styles.  

Premium Luxury 

High-Quality Materials Are Perfect for That Premium Bathroom Feel

High-Quality Materials Are Perfect for That Premium Bathroom Feel

Premium materials and luxury feature only become trendier bathroom additions with each passing year. This doesn’t just mean fancy materials such as marble, granite, ceramic tile, and stainless steel, but also includes luxurious furnishes such as polished brass hardware, stainless steel framed vanities, and high tech features such as massage jets.

Lighting is another premium feature these days. Many of our bathrooms are located in parts of the home where they get little to no natural light; so changing that is crucial for making your bathroom comfier. Larger windows, a skylight, and brighter lighting are all good changes towards a better-lit bathroom. 

Marble All The Way

Speaking of marble, it’s another one of those materials that's hot in the arena of current bathroom trends. It's the perfect choice for anyone who wants something subtler than a big mural but not as plain as a bare white wall. Marble comes in various different versions of white, beige, brown, and black; and these hues can be used to make a restrained yet beautiful contrasting design.

It is also no secret that marble is a beautiful material that exudes opulence through its beautiful texture and its natural strength. It also feels great to the touch, making it the perfect material for a room that you use — and touch — every day like a bathroom. 

All Natural 

If Minimalism is Your Style, Natural Materials Are an Excellent Choice

Minimalism is one of the most natural design features out there, so why not integrate it with natural materials for the most natural design out there? Natural elements such as wood, ceramic tile, stone, and plenty of sunlight make for a crisp and clean bathroom layout.

This also keeps the design from being too busy and prevents clutter. Having breathing space is crucial in these cold winter months, so why not go natural?

Textured Aesthetic 

Different Premium Materials Give Character to a Quality Bathroom

A textured design that combines textures, colors, and materials are one of the rising stars in current bathroom trends. As minimalism has hit its apex, we are seeing a gradual shift away from more monolithic designs towards more varied ones.

The texture is the shortcut towards a visually diverse bathroom design. A great way to recreate this design in your bathroom is by combining quality materials such as wood-beamed ceilings, textured wall coverings, mirrors, and a multi-tone paint scheme as opposed to monochrome or neutral-colored one.

Retro Vintage 

Retro Style And Modern Tech is The Ultimate Power Couple

It seems like the retro trend is set to be with us for a long time. As everything around us changes at a dizzying pace, it’s nice to go back to something that feels familiar and homely; and that’s what a retro design does.

The secret to an effective retro design is a tasteful balance of vintage design and modern functionality. In other words, opposites attract. A great example of this is a stylish vintage tub with a modern faucet, combining old-world style with modern reliability. 

Wet Rooms 

Wet Room Designs Minimize Clutter

When it comes to 2022 bathroom trends, the wet room has quickly taken center stage. If you know what a wetroom is, then you probably love them. If you don’t, the term might have piqued your interest. Fortunately, the wet room has a conveniently descriptive name. Simply put, it is a bathroom that gets wetter than regular ones. In fact, it is a room that is designed to get wet.

The floors and walls of a wet room bathroom are sealed so that water won’t leak through them. One of the beauties of a wet room installation is that it gives you a lot of options when it comes to style. Wet room designs are free of clutter which makes them look much sleeker. The extra room makes it easier to come up with design ideas and allows you to use all kinds of different materials such as wood, tile, stone, ceramic, or concrete, giving you a modern bathroom look.

Go Green

It might seem like an unusual choice to go for a green color scheme, but it can actually be a cool way to refresh your bathroom’s design. Green is a color intimately associated with nature, and so it is associated with mental wellbeing and health.

It’s safe to say we could all do with a bit more of that these days, so giving your bathroom a green color scheme is also a fun way to give your morning routines some new year’s flair! 

Japandi Style

This cool bathroom design trend is a synthesis of the best elements of Japanese and Scandinavian minimalist design. It is a beautiful marriage of the smooth, natural forms of Japanese design with Nordic ergonomics and practicality. 


As opposed to a standard scandi design that has mostly neutral tones, Japandi style thinks outside the box by marrying these neutral tones with bursts of color and natural materials. It is the perfect style for those seeking to give their bathroom an earthy feel.
