The primary ensuite bathroom is like your best-kept secret. It is a bathroom that most guests never use, it doesn’t get seen unless someone walks through the primary bedroom and is not on display in any capacity. However, it is arguably the most important bathroom because it is yours. It is the place where you get ready for the day ahead and relax and unwind in the evening. It should be an oasis, a haven, a tiny escape.
An extension of the primary bedroom, the primary bathroom should harbor all the creature comforts, style, and taste that reflects you, the homeowner. Sometimes finding your taste and knowing what you need is easier said than done. This is why we have outlined some of the biggest trends we are seeing in 2022 for primary ensuite bathrooms.
Trend #1: Statement Wallpaper in Your Primary Ensuite Bathroom
It used to be that wallpaper made us flashback to grandparents’ homes and the 80s sitcoms that we all loved to binge when we were younger. However, times are changing, and wallpaper is back but in a new way. In 2022, the wallpaper designs are vast and full of color and unique patterns, making it easy to make a statement. This is a fantastic way to show your personality and make your space uniquely yours. Wallpapering one wall, a portion of a wall, or creating a border, are all great ways to make a statement even if you are using a simpler wallpaper design. Here are some amazing wallpaper ideas for your primary ensuite to make the room pop!
Trend #2: Forget White, Bring on the Color
The bright white bathroom is slowly becoming a thing of the past. Introducing bolder colors is something that we are seeing a lot and for those clients who don’t necessarily like that idea, they are keeping it bright and airy, but with color. For people with bold tastes, jewel colors are making a statement in 2022. Emerald greens, blue sapphire, or amethyst purples, pair beautifully with natural wood accents in the bathroom. On the other hand, we are also seeing warm earth tones that nicely complement a bright bathroom, while avoiding the “all-white” trend. Also, a nice contrast with natural wood accents, these colors are also making their mark on newly renovated bathrooms.
Trend #3: Wet Room Bathrooms
A trend that was most popular in European countries has made its way to the States. Wet Rooms are bathrooms that are completely open spaces with everything in one room; showers, tubs, sinks, toilets, etc. Everything is waterproof and the underfloor is heated to keep the room dry. Wet Room Bathrooms provide a luxurious spa-like experience in the comfort of your own home. Every day, you’ll feel like you just stepped into a professional spa to get ready.
Trend #4: Statement Tile in Your Primary Ensuite Bathroom
Just like wallpaper, tile can make a bold and breathtaking statement. Introducing powerful color, patterns, and texture via your bathroom tile creates contrast and shows personality! Some tiles that represent these design trends are Zellige tiles, Mosaic tiles, Patterned tiles, and Marble tiles. Playing with color and patterns is a trend that goes across the board with bathrooms and creates an uplifting, exciting, and energizing aesthetic to your primary bathroom suite.
Trend #5: Smart Bathrooms
It’s 2022 and as such, our technology has improved and made life simpler. Embracing technology in everyday life is one thing, but make sure you are embracing it in your bathroom as well! Some innovative technology for the bathroom that we love is not only cool to use but also good for our environment. Smart Showers allow you to have the ideal water flow rate and temperature which saves money and energy. Smart Mirrors let you watch TV while showering or taking a bath, access apps, and even check the weather for the day. When you are ready to look at your reflection, just switch it to a mirror and you are all set to get ready.
Trend #6: Spa-like Experience
Want a spa-like bathroom but feeling hesitant on the wet bathroom trend? There are plenty of other bathroom features you can incorporate into your remodel to give you that spa experience without the design of a wet bathroom. Steam showers, towel heaters, and floor heaters will give you that illusion of being in a 5-star spa all in the privacy of your own home. Top it off with décor like live plants, candles, essential oil infusers, and earthy tones to create your own in-home spa.
