Though bathrooms usually only make up a small fraction of a home’s square footage, these rooms have long been a popular choice for remodeling and redesign. With a simple update here and a small fixture swap out there, a bathroom can quickly take on a whole new look.
Homeowners are beginning to implement the latest in design trends into this important space. The following list of 2022 bathroom style trends can help homeowners determine what their bathroom will look like in the year ahead.
The bathroom is often considered a functional space. As long as the faucet is not leaking and the bathtub is draining, homeowners often neglect to think through the design of the space.
In 2022, there will be an uptick in homeowners looking to create a more zen and spa-like space in this room. While function will always be at the core of the bathroom’s purpose, homeowners now want to transform their bathrooms into a relaxing setting.
For those who love the concept of a spa-like oasis in their home, the following will make the perfect accompaniment to this rich and luxe style:
- Aqua Eden Acrylic Freestanding Tub with Seat and Drain in Glossy White: When adding spa-like elements to the bathroom, the focus should be on the comfort of the room. Nothing elevates the contemporary design of a bathroom quite like a freestanding tub. This tub, which comes with a built-in seat, will turn any bathroom into a comforting oasis.
- Kingston Brass Courtyard Rectangular Undermount Bathroom Sink in White: Undermount sinks have been trending recently due to their streamlined, clean look. For a spa-themed bathroom, this rectangular undermount sink in white is the perfect blend of function and form.
- Kingston Brass English Country Bridge Bathroom Faucet with Brass Pop-Up in Polished Brass: Nothing embodies the essence of a spa-like setting quite like the extravagant design elements of 18th century Europe. This faucet features an exquisite arch that connects to elegant handles. A true statement piece, the polished brass helps to add to the stately elegance of the piece.
Gone are the days of boring white walls and single color palettes in the bathroom. Instead, 2022 is about bold statement walls featuring textured wallpapers, murals, and mixed materials. Statement walls are a wonderful way to turn an otherwise drab room into an eye-catching space. These walls are often placed behind freestanding tubs or alongside bathroom vanities.
To go along with a bold statement wall in a bathroom design, the following are the perfect accompaniment:
- Aqua Eden Cast Iron Double Ended Clawfoot Tub in White/Matte Black: In many bathrooms, accent walls are used to fill large spaces. For homeowners with a large statement wall, adding an elegant clawfoot tub in front of this wall can help complete the look. This clawfoot tub with matte black feet will make the perfect accompaniment for patterned or textured walls.
- Fauceture Centurion Widespread Bathroom Faucet in Antique Copper: With a sleek and contemporary design, this widespread faucet makes the ideal companion for an accent wall. The antique copper finish will add a touch of warmth, making it a great pick for accent walls that implement blues, greens, and pinks.
- Kingston Brass Concord Towel Ring in Brushed Brass: Sometimes it’s the smallest touch that has the biggest impact. Swap out outdated towel rings in favor of these brushed brass rings. With a simple but modern design, these towel rings will help ensure that statement walls shine.
Nature is in, and homeowners are eager to add a touch of the outdoors into their bathroom design. Biophilic designs are all about bringing the home closer to the elements of nature through the use of both direct and indirect design elements.
This can mean adding a potted plant alongside a tub or designing a wall of succulents as an accent piece. Or, it can mean implementing representations of nature via shapes, elements, and fixture finishes. The goal of biophilic design is to help humans feel more connected to the roots of nature.
For those who are looking to bring this touch of natural design to their bathroom, the following are the perfect picks:
- Kingston Brass Vintage 2-Handle Wall Mount Bathroom Faucet in Antique Copper: Returning to nature is all about returning to the roots of life. This antique-designed wall mount bathroom faucet will make a perfect indirect biophilic style choice.

This console sink with stainless steel legs in a brushed brass finish is the perfect pick for a small biophilic bathroom. With its clean lines and warm brushed brass legs, it will blend in with the natural styling of the space.
A Touch of Blue
From bold navy blues which evoke sophistication to whimsical sea foams and turquoise hues which harken to a day at the beach, blues will take center stage in the bathroom during 2022.
A naturally appealing color, blue has long been loved for its ability to add calmness to any space. This color is also extremely versatile and pairs well with a more organically themed design.
For those looking to add a touch of soothing blue to the bathroom, the following will make the perfect accompanying upgrades:
- Kingston Brass Templeton Carrara Marble Vanity Top with Brass Console Legs: Regardless of the shade of blue, the earthy tones of this color make it a great pair for the marble countertop on this vanity console sink. Completing the look are brass legs, which add warmth to the space.
- Kingston Brass Vintage Shower Combo in Oil Rubbed Bronze: Nothing contrasts against the hues of blue quite like oil-rubbed bronze. This vintage wall mount shower combo features a high showerhead clearance and beautiful white, classic faucet knobs. When placed against a blue backdrop, the entire piece will become a central design element to the bathroom.
A Bold Implementation of Metallics
Along with mixing metals, in 2022 many homeowners will use a bold mix of metallic finishes. Contrasting faucets and fixtures are becoming the ideal accompaniment to bold accent walls and textured designs.
While the rule has long been to keep your finishes in the same tone, 2022 looks to be a year when the rules are broken. Chromes, coppers, and brass finishes will all be used together to create a unique and notable look.
For those who are ready to embrace the bold, use the following fixtures to liven up the bathroom:
- Kingston Brass Centerset Bathroom Faucet in Brushed Nickel and Polished Brass: For a bold metallic touch, this centerset bathroom faucet is a great pick. With the look of traditional European craftsmanship and an English vintage style, this faucet comes equipped with mixed finishes. Brushed nickel and polished brass both adorn the piece, giving the bathroom a glamorous touch.
