5 Top Bathroom Design Ideas for 2022

Top Bathroom Design Ideas

When people think of bathrooms, they often imagine some part of their home they can always overlook. But in reality, bathrooms are an essential part of the house with unlimited design potential.

With bathroom design trends constantly changing and evolving, it can be difficult to narrow down all the new must-have design elements this 2022. Luckily, we’ve done it for you.

Perks of Improving Your Bathroom

Some people might be trying to renovate their homes for purely aesthetic reasons, but other benefits come from adding extra space or making your bathroom more modern. A new and improved bathroom will make your morning routine effortless and improve your overall health and well-being.

Small details such as a larger mirror or better lighting can help boost your confidence and even reduce stress levels. Installing a wet room or a walk-in bathtub could improve mobility issues which could be particularly beneficial in the long run.

Rethink Your Bath Experiences

As technology evolves, bathrooms have become more than just a place to bathe and clean ourselves. Now, it has become one of our favourite places to escape. It’s where we can unwind and enjoy a bit of solitude and a space where we can indulge in other experiences. There are showers with built-in speakers and an aromatherapy system to enjoy scented candles and essential oils. It may seem far-fetched, but people in the industry have been ingenious in making these experiences come to fruition.

Here are 5 bathroom ideas to help you get started on building the bathroom of your dreams:

1. Luxurious Comfort Station

The bathroom has long been associated with luxury, but it may soon take on a new level of comfort. As people have begun to realise that their bathroom is not designed to be utilitarian alone but also serve as a sanctuary, luxury bathroom design is moving forward at an unprecedented pace.

With a comfort station, you can create a retreat in your home to relax after a hard day’s work. Luxury comfort stations often include features like Jacuzzis, heated floors, steam showers, and more, which are all great additions to any bathroom renovation project. Heated floors will keep your feet warm during those cold winters, while a Jacuzzi will help soothe sore muscles. A steam shower will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed after a stressful day at work or school. Luxurious bathroom experiences don't need to be reserved for expensive hotel stays; you can bring them into your own home!

If you don't want to make major changes all in one go, take baby steps like changing your sink. A floor-standing lavatory like TOTO's LW817J will give you plenty of space to spread out when getting ready in the morning. It also provides a chic look to your bathroom, making it look larger than it is, while a pedestal sink offers a classic look that never goes out of style. For smaller bathrooms, wall-mounted sinks provide style and functionality without taking up too much space.

It doesn’t matter how luxurious your bathroom is. If your sink is a little grungy, it can take away from the overall relaxing feeling you want. Invest in water-saving sinks — environmentally-friendly yet completes the look you're aiming for. Look for something that features an under-counter faucet set like TOTO's LW595J that will save you space while still providing you with a beautiful, elegant aesthetic . You can also go for TOTO's Omni Console, which has a round and sleek design, and a rear overflow that reduces sink flooding accidents perfect for homes.

2. Upgraded Toilets

If you think your bathroom looks stylish now, wait until it’s been modernised with upgraded toilets that do more than flush. Toilets like these will include in-wall speakers, jet sprays, and warming functions to help you feel more relaxed as you use them. In addition to providing audio entertainment and fragrance, some upgraded toilets will also provide heat for those chilly winter mornings.

With a seat you spend countless minutes on doing your bathroom reading or scrolling through your phone, it deserves an upgrade like TOTO's CW895PJ OMNI+ One Piece Toilet. The Omni+ Toilet includes a rear cleaning with bidet functions and a hygienic self-cleaning nozzle that prevents nasty buildup in your bowl. It even has a dual flush technology that uses less water than most toilets while still providing powerful flushes that handle everything — from solid waste to wipes. TOTO's toilets are designed not just with luxury, but convenience in mind. If you're going to splurge on anything in your bathroom, make it your toilet! The right one will make all the difference.

3. Walk-in Showers

The once clunky bathrooms of yesteryear are no more. In their place are sleeker walk-in showers that take up less space than a bathtub. Many luxury hotel suites feature these well-designed showers, which were custom-built to free up valuable floor space. If you're looking for an upscale design element in your bathroom this year, look no further than a modern shower.

Walk-in showers require some DIY know-how and may be difficult to install depending on your home's layout, but they can be worth it if you have enough room. A few inches here and there can make all the difference in creating a sleek and functional bathing space.

To build your dream shower, you'll need a shower head fit for such a luxurious space, like TOTO's TX488SM Fixed Shower Head, which has a generous diameter of 300mm. This faucet features a durable finish without sacrificing performance and is easy to install in any bathroom. And if you enjoy intimate bathtime, why not shower in the rain? You can with TOTO's TX491STN Ceiling-Type Fixed Shower Head that offers a much more posh feel with its water pressure mimicking gentle raindrops.

4. Elegant Detailing

Bathroom remodelling is all about the details, from faucets to lighting fixtures, toilet seats to towel racks, and toothbrush holders — every bathroom product in your house should have an impact on how you feel when you use them. And when choosing products for your remodelling project or new home, elegance can uplift not just the way you feel, but your overall space. When you start browsing for products, think about quality and design before anything else.

Start with finding the right faucets. The best way is by investing in high-quality materials like TOTO's Extended Single Lever Lavatory Faucet With Pop-Up Waste. This model has a modern, minimalist design that works well with any decorating style. It also comes with a matching pop-up waste feature so you don't have to worry about cluttering up your sink area with more accessories than necessary. The pop-up feature makes it easy to clean your sink and keep things looking neat. TOTO's lever faucet comes in matte black that can match almost any colour scheme you choose for your bathroom.

TOTO's Double Paper Holder With Shelf is a clever way to keep tissues in any bathroom since it can already hold two paper rolls. It has an adjustable wall mount, so you can easily install it on either side of your toilet. Plus its sleek design won't look out of place even if you have traditional, modern, or minimalist fittings elsewhere in your bathroom. It has three finishes you can choose from–walnut, oak, and white.

Another noteworthy item is TOTO's Combination Towel Shelf and Bar, a great way to add extra storage space while also keeping towels within easy reach. It features two shelves — one for bath towels, one for hand towels — and a small rack for robes or other items.

5. Incorporate Tech

There’s an abundance of tech for your bathroom this year, from smart toilets to music that soothes you in the shower. We’re not sure if singing toilets are quite in line with how we want to spend our mornings, but certain bathroom technologies are ideal for both comfort and convenience — think motion-sensitive lights or a heated toilet seat.

TOTO’s TCF4911ESP Washlet+ is a prime example of bathroom technology that can make your life easier. The washlet detects when someone walks into its range and automatically opens its lid. It comes equipped with EWater+, which keeps the toilet bowl clean with its nozzle. When done, it closes itself again, securing a touchless experience for users. It also has a deodorizer that activates after every use, preventing unwanted odours and keeping germs at bay. A bonus? The washlet has an infrared sensor for remote control capacity, has adjustable warm air drying, and a heated seat with temperature control.
