Introducing a splash of colour into your modern bathroom

Bathroom trends are constantly changing, and the latest styles are more contemporary and minimal. This year, we are noticing that the most popular bathrooms have a modern and contemporary feel to them. So, if you are in the process of renovating your bathroom or would like to find some creative bathroom ideas, we have your back!

Gone are the days of white and stark bathroom colours and features. 2022 is all about adding colour to your bathroom to give it a look and feel you desire. Whether you are looking for a relaxing and tranquil space with creams and natural greens or a bright and vibrant room with bold geometric designs and pops of primary colours, you can achieve the perfect bathroom look with our modern bathroom ideas.

This month, the Aylesbury Bathroom Centre be discussing five modern bathroom ideas to update your bathroom in 2022 and how we can help you achieve that perfect stylish look.

Our top 5 favourite modern bathroom ideas for your home

Let’s jump right in with some of the most popular modern bathroom ideas we have seen so far for this year!

Rainfall ceiling showers

Close your eyes in a rainfall ceiling shower, and you can almost imagine yourself on holiday under a waterfall. These showers are trendy for several reasons. Aesthetically, they are very pleasing to the eye, often with larger showerheads in various shapes. These modern showerheads offer more water coverage, meaning you get a soothing all over body wash without having to try and catch the water. Rainfall showerheads provide a more luxurious experience than traditional showers and are excellent when used with walk-in showers. However, if you are looking for a powerful shower, this may not be the best option for you.

Clever storage

With many of us battling for space in our bathrooms, clever storage is the modern way forward for 2022 bathrooms. Save your floor space by opting for wall hanging cabinets and shelves rather than filling your floor with cupboards and hard angles that take up space and leave your bathroom feeling like a cramped space. Floating cabinets, such as an under-sink vanity unit, are also a popular design choice this year. Although closer to the floor, add some under-cabinet lighting to light the space cleverly, and this will give the illusion of more space in your bathroom.

Modern tile choices

Bathroom tiles are such an important choice for your bathroom, and getting them right can be difficult. For smaller bathrooms, we recommend matching your floor and wall tiles or opting for geometric shapes that distract the user from the square footage of your bathroom and draw their eye to the intricate patterns on your walls. Don’t overdo it though, as this can make your bathroom feel much smaller – particularly if you are using dark colours.

Larger bathrooms look fantastic with luxurious and opulent tiles that complement the natural light and enhance it. If you plan to add pops of colour with accessories and textures, don’t go crazy with your tile colours, as this can make your bathroom look messy. Our sister company Aylesbury Tile Centre offer a vast range of perfect porcelain tiles for your bathroom.

Incorporating smart technology

Innovative technology isn’t just for our living rooms and kitchens. Bathrooms have a range of technology options for the modern bathroom design you are trying to create. Choose from intelligent flush valves so you can do away with the traditional flush lever, air hand dryers to make sure your hands are thoroughly dried and sanitised, and thermostatic valves you can control quickly and easily.

Contemporary bathrooms are becoming a relaxing, spa-like place for many modern homes. Those with bigger bathrooms may also want to consider adding a little bit of luxury in the form of a steam room or sauna pod. Steam rooms can be perfectly created from your shower enclosure, and our range of sauna pods come in a variety of sizes, so you can be sure you will get the ultimate sauna for your available space.

Modern radiators

Traditional bathrooms have an older style radiator, generally under a window that takes up space and no longer fits with the feel you are trying to create. We suggest moving to a modern radiator to brighten your bathroom. For those with compact spaces, why not consider a dual radiator that warms your towels and your bathroom so you can get that modern feel without taking up too much space? Or move away from wall radiators entirely and look at underfloor heating. Having a radiator that is vertical rather than horizontal will not only provide a modern look without taking up wall space but will make your bathroom seem larger.

Don’t forget your accessories and textures

One of the most exciting parts is dressing your bathroom. Include bathroom fixtures such as taps and toilet roll holders in your initial ideas so you can keep your colour schemes on the straight and narrow. Make use of your natural light and install a larger mirror to reflect the light and open up your bathroom. Stick to clean lines and avoid sharp angles to create the illusion of more space. Don’t forget to consider your bathroom lighting ideas – what kind of light do you want to create in your modern style bathroom? Will natural underlighting work, or would you prefer more stark lighting from your ceiling? Lastly, household plants work incredibly well in bathrooms. Not only do they add a great pop of colour, but they are great for health and wellbeing.
