With summer still here and remote work schedules in full effect, you and your family are likely still spending a fair amount of time at home.

One unfortunate side effect of being at home is that you’re probably doing more cleaning, too. Bathrooms included. But this is also an opportunity to maximize the bathroom space with cool design ideas that are both stylish, functional and forward-looking.

Get started with these ideas if you’re ready to update your powder rooms for living in 2022.

Tech-first faucet

A touchless faucet might have been a No. 1 must-have at the start of the pandemic. Even today, techy faucets remain top market items as folks keep a focus on handwashing and other hygienic practices.

You can make any sink more inviting, stylish and functional with a touchless faucet, which can help you save on water and cleaning. They come in a variety of styles and are a budget-friendly way to make a big design splash inside the home’s bathrooms.

Outside-the-box storage

Your primary bathroom could be a hub for supplies and other items that belong neatly stored and out of sight.

Homebuilders understand that people want a highly functional space with multipurpose storage throughout the home. This approach works particularly well in the bathroom. It won’t be too long before bathrooms include bigger dressing areas, closets and maybe laundry rooms.

In the meantime, you can make the most of any space with your own with multipurpose storage containers and system in addition to cabinets, shelves and over-the-toilet storage.

Lighting boost

Plenty of homeowners are upgrading their light fixtures for aesthetic reasons. But enhanced lighting in your room goes beyond style.

Start with vanity lighting. A simple upgrade includes swapping out Edison light bulbs with more sustainable products that produce a bright and sparkling ambiance. Some vanities are self-lit and will give you more light to take care of your tasks in front of the mirror.

Other trends include gold and black finishes and white glass.

Touches of organic

Another emerging trend involves your bathroom’s overall look and feel. Natural, warm and earthy colors are in. Plants and complementary accents will also elevate your bathroom’s style. Think about natural materials, water-like blues and natural lighting such as skylights when dreaming up your bathroom space. Also, keep in mind that organic style leans more toward the philosophy of less is more.

Wallpaper with attitude

If you want to make a statement instead of keeping to an all-organic look, consider a splash of color and motif with a bold wallpaper.

Cover one side of the room, from floor to ceiling, with an unexpected wallpaper design. There are no shortages of design or themes, which should make it easy to find something that fits seamlessly inside your bathroom without compromising the overall aesthetics, edges and corners of the surrounding space.

Time-machine furniture

Go back in time and add a surprise layer of visual splendor with vintage furniture.

Your piece, such as a vintage chest with drawers, armoire or double sink, will be a conversation piece and solidify your overall design.
