2022 Trend Alert: 5 Small Bathroom Designs

Everyone wants their small bathroom design to make an impact - so what are the biggest and best trends for 2022? From first homes to forever homes, we take a look at the latest bathroom trends in small bathrooms like yours to inspire your next bathroom transformation.

1. Be Inspired by Nature🌱

Simple and effective, what’s not to love about nature in the bathroom? 

Organic and unrefined, nothing uplifts a small bathroom design quite like nature. Encouraging a positive mindset from the moment you step inside; it’s no wonder natural bathroom ideas are the leading bathroom trend for 2022. Whether it’s Japandi, Scandi or a simple scheme scattered with potted plants, every natural bathroom idea is different, but one thing’s for certain - they’re all as beautiful as each other. 

Looking to finish your natural bathroom idea with a touch of sophistication? Uncover the impact of a Brushed Brass finish with our brassware and accessories, like @thenewfrontwall has used here to create a stylishly indulgent look to complement any organic colour palette.

2. Time to Shine with Terrazzo🌟

You guessed it! It’s all about natural bathroom ideas for 2022, which puts Terrazzo on many people’s bathroom wishlist's right now. 

What’s so special about Terrazzo? Smooth and polished, Terrazzo features chips of marble or granite in concrete for a beautifully distinctive look. Want the look for less? Opt for faux Terrazzo as a cheaper alternative to get this trending bathroom idea on a budget. 

Want the wow factor? Showing the power of Terrazzo in small bathroom design, @eclectic_scandi’s standout space has been perfectly paired with a wall hung basin and Hoxton tap in Matt Black for a space-saving small contemporary bathroom that's guaranteed to impress.

3. Make it Yours with Marble🤍

Tying together our obsession with nature and the need for personalisation, why wouldn't you want a marble bathroom? 

Fresh and flawless, getting this bathroom idea on a budget couldn't be easier. With no two patterns the same, porcelain tiles mimic the look and feel of marble for a similar look at a fraction of the cost. Think marble can't be used within small bathroom designs? Think again! Take a look at how this latest bathroom trend adds a personal touch in @homes_and's stunning bathroom for the perfect place to unwind.

Decided on your brassware finish? Whether it’s Chrome, Brushed Brass or Matt Black, marble’s incredible versatility lets you create the small contemporary bathroom of your dreams without having to compromise on style.
