Among the most popular trends when it comes to home improvements, investing in a well-designed bathroom is one of the best ways for maximizing
the potential of both your home’s value and your quality of life.
Aesthetically in 2022, design preferences in bathrooms will continue to be more contempo- rary and futuristic in style.
Surprisingly, at the other end of the spectrum of contemporary bathroom concepts lies home automation.
Whilst it may seem to directly contradict the trend of keeping things au naturel, smart technology promises to put the control at your fingertips and to make your bathroom work better for you.
From de-misting mirrors, integrated charging and USB ports, LED temperature displays and automatic hand-wipe sensors, the bathroom is a haven for smart technology. Who could resist?
A seamless bathroom design can help you fulfil your everyday needs with efficiency as well as giving you a relaxing space to unwind after a long day.
Keep in mind, bathrooms can be expensive to renovate and replace, which is why it’s important to get it right the first time round.
Whilst some trends come and go, some will stand the test of time. Though that green plant wall might be aesthetically
appealing, it also sounds like a beacon for creepy crawlies in the shower – taking the return to nature theme a bit too literally!
So long as you keep functionality and durability in mind, you can’t really go wrong.
