Your bathroom is meant to be a retreat, regardless of its size. For instance, you can lean into the charm of a small bathroom by outfitting it with bold wallpaper, or you can fill a spacious bathroom layout with a calming white color palette paired with wood accents, like a teak stool, and a fluffy bathmat for spa-like vibes. 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. To get you inspired to refresh your space in the new year, Good Housekeeping asked our favorite interior design pros to share the bathroom trends that are worth keeping on your radar in 2022.

1

Matte Black Fixtures

“Antique brass has had its fair share of the spotlight in bathrooms, but now there’s a new kid in town. Matte black fixtures have been having a moment, and we will see even more of this trend in 2022.” — Joshua Smith at Joshua Smith Inc.

2

Bold Wallpaper

“Bold wallpaper, from walls to ceiling, are the new experience for bathroom design. Not to mention, keeping the edges soft and curvy with the cabinets and arched mirror details. Think outside of both with pieces that we already have in the home for storage, like a bar cart with hand towels, candles, soaps and lotions.”
Michelle Harrison-McAllister, Michelle Harrison Design

Bathroom Suites

“Larger bathrooms and primary suites will continue to be a trend. With more people now permanently working from home, our clients are looking to get away from it all and a primary suite can do this. Fixtures in gold-tone finishes are becoming more readily available, and these will continue to grow in popularity. While associated with the boho look, these stand alone and can work nicely with traditional and modern aesthetics.” — Mark Lavender, M. Lavender Interiors

4

Spa Aesthetics

“People want sanctuaries, so keeping things calm in bathrooms is desired. Bathrooms are generally smaller and cannot collect a whole bunch of clutter, so people will keep them lean and simple to provide a place of respite. — Georgia Zikas, Georgia Zikas Design

5

Organic Elements

“For bathrooms, we will see people incorporating natural and organic elements, spa-like vibes, and bringing the outdoors in.” — Lauren Lerner, Living with Lolo

6

Vintage Furniture

“A vintage piece of furniture adds an unexpected layer of visual interest and becomes of conversation piece in a bathroom. You can use a vintage chest of drawers, armoire or in the case of this Pasadena home, I utilized a vintage sideboard for the double sink vanity. It brings complexity to the sparkling new bathroom.” — Amy Sklar, Sklar Design

7

Bringing in Nature

“It’s no secret that plants have become increasingly popular in home design these days. This is not excluding our bathrooms. Aside from plants having such a great finishing-touch appeal, the usage of plants can be very dynamic in a space. It sparks a sustainable approach, air-purifying benefits, and a beautiful connection with nature. We will see more biophilic design to create a spa-like feel within bathrooms.” — Marie Cloud, Indigo Pruitt

8

White Marble

“White marble features in bathrooms are refined, classic and sophisticated, and will always stand the test of time. This design choice is sure to buck the categorization on any trend list.” — Joshua Smith, Joshua Smith Inc.
