Bathrooms aren’t usually one of the rooms in a home that gets a lot of attention from interior designers, but as many people are staying home more, homeowners are making bathroom renovations to be more comfortable and more functional. If you’re considering making upgrades to your powder room in 2022, here are five trends to be aware of.
Once considered a big no-no in the bathroom, wooden flooring is making a comeback. While true hardwood flooring is not waterproof, using modern polyurethane sealers can make that wood flooring a reality in your bathroom. Another option to give the look of wooden flooring is bathroom tiles that give the appearance of wood. Larger tiles give you a more seamless look and can make smaller bathrooms appear larger, so consider this trend in your upgrade.
Showers used to be a convenience over baths, but in modern bathrooms, more people are opting for bigger and larger shower enclosures over bathtubs. The bathtub isn’t going the way of the dinosaur, so you always opt for at least one bathroom with a tub in your home, but in bathroom renovations, go with a luxury shower. Clear shower enclosures are also more popular in modern design, especially in smaller bathrooms because they can make the room appear bigger because it’s open and inviting. Showers are also more popular for accessibility and ageing in place. It’s much safer to step into a shower than to step over a bathtub when you have limited mobility. Include handrails and update the faucet to make it even safer for everyone all of ages.
Wallpaper can pack a big punch of personality for in a bathroom. Wallpaper is easier than ever to select the right pattern through online resources instead of browsing through wallpaper sample books. You probably won’t need more than three or four rolls, which makes it affordable for everyone. Wallpaper can be a weekend DIY project, but if you don’t want to mess the process, talk to the team at Handyman Connection to update your bathroom quickly and easily.
Spa-like bathrooms have been on trend for many years, and it doesn’t seem as if this trend will ease up. It’s not only luxury showers or whirlpool bathtubs, but low-maintenance granite for countertops, beautiful subway tiling for flooring and stylish hardware for cabinetry. Custom storage solutions that fit your space can give you a unique look that is sleek and modern without feeling like you built your bathroom around the fixtures. If you aren’t ready for major renovations, give your bathroom an upgrade with increased lighting or natural lighting. Add plants to your bathroom for an interesting look and calm atmosphere.
Floating bathroom vanities mount to the wall and appear to be floating in the air. They look best in homes that have a contemporary feel, but more people are using these vanities in smaller bathrooms to free up floor space. A floating vanity makes a bathroom appear less cluttered and gives the illusion there’s more space. An even bigger benefit is that it’s easier to clean around a floating vanity because there are no legs that trap dirt and grime. The drawback is a lack of storage space. You should hire a contractor to install a floating vanity because it requires special mounting requirements on the studs in the wall. Handyman Connections is here to help.
