Top 5 Bathroom Remodeling Ideas for 2022

Thanks to the pandemic, we find ourselves spending more time at home. More time in the kitchen, more time in the living room, and way more time in the bathroom than one would care to admit.

So what do we do with this extra time in the bathroom?

Self-care and relaxation of course. Unfortunately, many of us spend time realizing how inadequate our bathrooms are as well.

For this reason, bathroom remodels are on the rise!

In this blog post, we’ll go over the top 5 bathroom remodeling trends to expect in the upcoming year:

1. Smart Toilets

The toilet is the usual cause for a visit to the bathroom, so why not class it up a bit with a smart toilet?

With the current heightened focus on personal hygiene and the cleanliness of our houses, smart toilets provide efficient yet luxurious solutions to make them healthier and easier to use.

So what makes a toilet a “smart toilet?”

Features such as hands-free flushing and self-cleaning technology, smart toilets are guaranteed to lessen the amount of time spent interacting with pesky surface germs.

Once seen as a futuristic idea for those interested in keeping up with the most advanced forms of technology, smart toilets are now becoming more and more popular in everyday homes.

2. Soaking Tubs

More time spent at home = more time to spend relaxing in a hot bubble bath!

With a separate shower and tub still being the most popular bathroom layout, the focus is shifting more towards the bath, which was previously hidden because of our morning haste to quickly get ready for the workday.

Suddenly, the hour you’d spend commuting to and from work is spent at home.

How about a nice soak in the tub after a hard day of working from home?

3. Plants

Spending more time at home also has its downsides – less time in nature.

Let’s face it, sometimes the stress and anxiety of staying indoors can get to you so you need a way to feel connected to nature.

Having a space that is beautifully decorated with plants allows you to keep in touch with nature while you are inside. More, it’s also proven to reduce stress and anxiety levels, in addition to providing better air quality.

4. Walk-in Showers

Nothing tells you how small your bathroom is faster than everybody being home all day long.

When designed correctly, walk-in showers have the ability to make your bathroom space feel much bigger than with a traditional enclosed shower stall.

With the use of a walk-in shower also comes the added benefit of more features to be added, including double shower heads or even luxurious ceiling shower heads!

5. LED Lighting

Lighting plays a huge role in the overall look and feel of your bathroom. With the use of smart technology rising, LED lighting is rising in popularity within all homes, especially in bathrooms.

Want to create the illusion of a floating mirror? How about compatibility with technology so you can listen to music or podcasts while you shower? More, what about being able to turn off your lights from your phone?

LED lighting can make a once old and traditional bathroom include the features of some of the most common and advanced technology used today!

Final Thoughts

You may have realized a common theme here.

The more time we have to spend at home, means the more time we get to spend on ourselves. Regardless of the pandemic, your home should be a place where you can relax and improve on yourself.
