Let’s admit – the bathroom is one of the most essential rooms in the home, and some of us are lucky enough to have more than one! But if you have taken a look at your bathroom lately and have had the feeling that it’s time to give it an upgrade, perhaps you should maybe by adding a bathtub. Unlike the bedroom, it’s easy for a bathroom to appear old and outdated because of the fixtures – from the toilet to the shower and bath to the bathroom vanity. But if you were to remodel your bathroom, an easy way to do so would be to upgrade your fitted furniture. There are a lot of styles and designs now, but if you are looking for the latest and best trends for upgrading your bathroom with fitted furniture in 2022, here’s what you need to know.
- Going minimalist
There’s something about simplicity which always makes it a good and attractive choice, and if you’d like a bathroom that’s clean and simple, going minimalist is key. Look for crisp silhouettes and neutral colours that make your bathroom appear bigger and brighter and much more striking and sleek.
- The use of marble
If you are thinking of replacing your bathroom vanity, go for one topped with marble. It’s a classic material that is elegant and easily recognisable and will never go out of style, but be careful with your colour choices, as the colour can quickly make it look outdated! Think classic colours in black and white rather than pink, blue, or emerald, which is so 1970s.
- Basin vessels
Another good choice for the fitted furniture for modern bathrooms is vessels as basins. These basins or sinks are widely preferred today, especially for the powder room. Not only are they functional, but they are also wildly attractive and appealing. Also, these tend not to spill any water (or spill less water) than other basins, which lets you keep your bathroom cleaner and neater for a longer period.
- Open shelving
- There is another well-loved trend that many bathroom owners are simply dying to have, and it’s none other than open shelving. What’s not to love? It keeps things in place and is very functional. It even allows you to ‘show off’ certain items, such as your bathroom towels and other linen, your bathroom products (especially shower gels and creams), toilet papers, makeup, and more.
- Vanities in a vintage design
If you’ve always been drawn to the design of vintage fixtures, you’ll be happy to know that there are now vintage vanities that come in darker wood and starker styles. If you want something with a more dramatic effect, you can opt for bronze and gold hues and tones that would go well with other bathroom accessories and fittings. Here’s a tip: old-fashioned wall sconces are great for that authentic vintage appeal, especially along the clusia hedge.
- Wooden vanities
Wood has always been the material of choice for many bathrooms, whether cabinetry or flooring. But it is now popular with vanities, and the natural look of the wood sets it apart. You can go for the exposed look, with its rich, rustic hue that gives any space more warmth.
