Top Bathroom Trends for 2022

The bathroom is one of the top rooms to renovate if you’re thinking of giving your home a refresh in 2022. Since the footprint of a bathroom is typically smaller than other rooms, it can be an easier update than other spaces. And the good news is that bathroom remodels recoup 65-64% of their cost if you plan to sell your home, according to Renofi. New lighting fixtures are one of the top features to consider when renovating the bath. While it may seem like a minor part of a bathroom remodel, lighting fixtures can affect the overall appearance of the entire space. Dim, outdated lighting can make your bathroom look drab, even after an expensive makeover.

Here is a look at the top bathroom trends for 2022 – with beautiful lighting fixtures to complement each one. 

Cohesive Elements
Tie the bathroom design together with cabinet hardware, mirrors and lighting edged in a sophisticated matte black finish. Pops of gray are used on the large-format shower tiles, and the double vanities add an exciting design element against white walls. Warm gray flooring grounds the space. The substantial scale of Saffert wall sconces framing the tub and the clean lines of the Calais bath bars over the vanities offer striking focal points to each area. And mirrors instantly open up a room, so hanging a pair doubles the effect while complementing the clear glass shades and elegantly simple frame of the two Calais bath bars. 

Use Color
A different finish color changes the look of a lighting fixture, and this bathroom proves the point. The same Calais vanity bar and Saffert wall sconce shown in black above are now shown finished in soft gold tones, creating a luxurious look in this bathroom. Colorful vanities and millwork are in for 2022: this modern blue vanity accented with subtle, glowing brass accents makes a glamourous style statement. Sleek cabinet hardware, stylish faucets and bold mirrors echo the finely brushed, mellow vintage brass patina of the Calais vanity lights and the Saffert wall sconce, adding a touch of luxury to the bath. Window treatments created with natural textiles and a rattan hamper bring a touch of organic warmth to the scene.

Smart Storage
Elegant hues and luxurious brushed nickel accents offer timeless style against a soothing palette of barely-there blue and white. A key trend in 2022 is maximizing storage: this bathroom shows how to use a tall vertical niche and a large vanity with drawers as smart storage options. Over the vanity, the Gilmour bath bar pairs squared elements with clear glass shades to create a classic look with a modern sensibility. Soaking tubs continue to be a top bathroom feature, especially freestanding, flat-bottom styles. The Elara wall sconce offers a modern silhouette to the tub area.

Darker Color Palettes
Darker color palettes in the bath provide a clean and minimalist look in the bath. This bathroom uses black and gray accents to make the bathroom a stylish space for daily routines. And bold floors are a prominent trend in 2022, such as this dark floor, which is a neutral yet unexpected option in the bath. A vintage clawfoot tub in black with a white rolled edge complements the antique details that abound in the Ambrose vanity light finished in matte black, like turned metal fittings and clear glass shades that display nostalgic charm.
