Ubiquitous minimalism has permeated the plumbing technologies used in fashionable bathrooms in 2022. The ideal bathing area in the ideal apartment of the new generation looks like a combination of a shower area and a separate place for relaxation with a comfortable and beautiful bathtub. All inconspicuous plumbing is hidden from prying eyes in walls, niches and installations. From the outside, only the elegant curves of the handles and sparkling water jets are visible.
Design of a bathroom with a shower cabin
The shower cabin in the bathroom no longer looks like something foreign and closed. On the contrary, it is a free open area enclosed by a maximum transparent partition made of safety tempered glass. Virtually invisible metal drain on the floor and a shower system of appropriate design with an overhead “tropical” shower for maximum relaxation.
Freestanding bathtubs to create a home SPA
A great solution is to create a zone of real relaxation with the help of a free-standing bathtub. Unfortunately, such a solution can be applied only in large rooms of houses or spacious apartments. But if you have such an opportunity – do not neglect it!
A bathtub installed in the center of the room looks like real decoration and is worth all the resources and efforts spent. It can be both a bath made of cast stone of various shapes and colors, and classic cast-iron baths on elegant decorative legs, complemented by gilded sanitary ware. Large round acrylic bathtubs built into pedestals can be turned into a home jacuzzi by adding hydromassage systems.
The sink is a stylish detail
The most fashionable trend of 2022 in the matter of sinks is bowls of interesting shapes that are installed on the tabletop. Rounded, oval, non-standard shapes, multi-colored monochromes, or imitating natural stone or concrete – hundreds of options. For convenience, small sinks are immediately placed in pairs in the common area for washing. Such solutions look elegant and aristocratic, and it is as convenient as possible in everyday life.
Built-in sinks with slotted plums look ultra-modern and fit well into the industrial style of the interior.
Minimalism with concealed installation plumbing
Built-in models of sanitary ware, which we have already started to get acquainted with in our recent article on concealed installation faucets, are gaining more and more popularity. Thanks to the appearance of similar sanitary ware from a wider range of manufacturers, the price offered for similar models is becoming more and more affordable. It is this area of bathroom furnishing that provides convenience and functionality. Designed with ergonomics in mind, built-in faucets and shower remodeling systems have excellent quality internal details and a concise design with visible controls and overflows. They are made in different styles and colors: chrome, black matte, white, gold, bronze, rose gold, graphite, and others.
Fashionable washroom: wall-hung toilets and bidets
Installations for hanging sanitary ware, where pipes and drain tanks are reliably hidden, have been firmly in the trend for many years. Thanks to the choice of current models, the toilet will also look modern. Suspended sanitary ware does not look massive and visually expands the space.
In almost every new work, designers install multifunctional bidets with a hygienic shower next to the toilet, which is as comfortable as possible in everyday life. Among the technological innovations of sanitary ceramics is the appearance of flangeless toilets, which are much more hygienic than conventional models.
In addition to the main bathroom design trends, we have selected for you several ways to diversify and organize the space of the home bathroom to make it both fashionable and comfortable:
- Organization of storage in the interior of a small bathroom (from 4 square meters)
You can expand the interior of a small bathroom primarily by using appropriate finishing and materials. But another important point is the preservation of visual uniformity. This means that all elements in the room should be orderly and concise. Many unnecessary details, such as pipes, siphons, countless jars of cosmetics and bathing accessories create visual noise and clutter the space.
To create a minimalist atmosphere, invisible storage systems are provided: masked technological hatches, covered with tiles, and built-in cabinets in the same color as the walls. Such bathroom furniture is not only stylish but also extremely practical.
- Household appliances as part of the interior
Few people can afford a separate laundry room. Most often, large household appliances are installed directly in the bathroom. Among the latest trends, hiding the washing machine and dryer behind furniture facades or under countertops prevails. It is recommended to mount the dryer in a column above the “washing machine”.
To maintain a normal microclimate and reduce the degree of humidity in the room, exhaust fans are used. In recent years, they have become not only silent, but also have a stylish design and a variety of colors.
- Use of mirrors in bathrooms
Of course, you can’t do without mirrors in the bathroom, and not only for household purposes. Competently selected mirrors expand the room, reflect light favorably, and when using mirror cabinets, they also become an additional place for storing many small things.
Beautiful mirrors of various shapes – round, oval, rectangular, framed both in a thin laconic and gold decorative frame, give a special sophistication. The main thing is to choose this accessory so that it corresponds to the general atmosphere of the bathroom.
For lovers of technological innovations – smart mirrors with heating, lighting, a clock and even built-in speakers.
- Complementing the design with multi-level lighting
Low-voltage LED systems open to designers another direction for creativity – complementing interiors with the help of lighting systems. And here it is important not only that LEDs are as environmentally friendly and economical to use as possible. It was diode technology that helped bring bold fantasies about lighting up the water in the shower or hot tub depending on the temperature of the water or your mood.
When starting to update the bathroom this year, listen to the advice of designers and your personal preferences, so that the created interior not only meets fashion trends, but also pleases every member of the household with comfort.
