You might love your home as it is, but it’s always a good idea to make improvements from time to time.

And there are few things that’ll upgrade your property like a bathroom renovation.

The summer is a good time to make some alterations to your bathroom because you’re less dependent on the cosiness factor than you are during the winter months (nobody wants their bathroom to be a temporary building site during sub-zero temperatures!).

If you’re looking for some inspiration for your bathroom renovation, then look no further. We’ve put together some of the best summer 2022 bathroom design trends to get you started.

Take one or all the recommendations on board, and you’ll be well on your way to having a bathroom that adds real value to your home.

Ready to take a look at the latest bathroom trends? Let’s dive in.

Think Colour

Over the past few years, bathrooms have typically had neutral, calming colours, which can help to give them spa-like energy.

But 2022 sees a move away from that aesthetic with more and more people making the switch toward richer colours.

The result? A lot more warmth, which makes your bathroom even more inviting than it was before.

One of the big bathroom trends at the moment is bolder colour palettes becoming the norm; deep burgundy and jewel-esque colours are particularly popular at the moment.

Both will enhance the aesthetics of your bathroom and also make it look more expensive.

That doesn't mean that you have to update all of the fixtures and fittings in the bathroom. You could simply add a pop of colour with a new bath mat for the floor or by hanging some bright towels on the towel rail.

It doesn't matter if you don't want to carry out a complete revamp, this way you can save time and money.

Earthy Materials

There’s been a shift towards adding a touch of nature to our homes in recent years, and that has now extended to our bathrooms.

Organic, earthy, natural materials such as stone and wood are becoming increasingly popular and prominent.

While you’re on the earthy vibe, look at adding some eco friendly home products, such as sustainable cotton towels or a diatomite natural stone bath mat, to your bathroom.

One of the many benefits of these products is that they are environmentally friendly, as well as being modern, aesthetically pleasing and extremely durable and long-lasting.

Top it all off with a few plants, and you’ll have a bathroom that’s very much in line with mother earth. Creating a natural vibe will really help you to relax.

Ambient Lighting

Bathroom lighting is usually absent from interior design conversations, but that’s beginning to change, and with good reason — it’s the ideal way to create an inviting energy that pushes you towards deep comfort.

There are a million ways to light your bathroom correctly, including adding a bold chandelier, flush mounts, or pendants.

With everyone more conscious about the environment and saving energy, consider making the switch to LED bulbs in the bathroom.

Bathroom Lighting

They use, on average, 75% less energy than a standard bulb. Over time, this adds up to some very significant energy savings. 

How you light your room isn’t so important; what matters is that you’re taken to a space of deep relaxation when you’re in your bathroom.

Space to Relax

You can’t feel truly relaxed if you’re in a cluttered environment!

The goal is to create a space that’s spa-worthy, one that brings relaxation and peace of mind in abundance. And that can’t happen if there are just too many items clogging up the bathroom.

Small Bathroom Design

The solution? Take the minimalist approach, especially if you are working with a smaller space but even in larger bathrooms it is key too.

All the items in your bathroom should bring something to the table. If they don’t, store them elsewhere.

Bathroom Accessories

Finally, consider livening up your bathroom by incorporating bathroom accessories or furniture into the space.

Accessories can — and should — be both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

Bathroom Accessories - Soap Dispenser

A soap dispenser that’s in line with your overall décor will look much better than its original plastic bottle, after all.

Don't forget to consider colour too - you don't want bathroom accessories that are going to clash with the rest of your bathroom aesthetic.
