If you’re looking for fresh inspiration for your new year renovation project, I’ve got it covered for stylish bathrooms. In fact, I’ve been delving into the latest bathroom design ideas, which will truly stand the test of time. I’ve gained plenty of insight from my own experience as a bathroom mirrors, storage and accessories specialist.

I’ve also looked into 2022 predictions from Trend Bible, the leading global interiors forecaster. Their analysts claim the ‘soulful sanctuary’ will lead lifestyle in the home to create an environment in which to ‘detox from noise and distraction’. I love this notion as I firmly believe the bathroom should be a bathing haven. This is, after all, a key room to escape for rest and relaxation behind closed doors. You can instantly apply the notion of a soulful sanctuary to create a bathing retreat where wellbeing is key. So, my advice is to start in the bathroom. Then move on to other areas to create a seamless flow of wellness throughout the home.

So, I’m delighted to reveal my latest bathroom megatrends for you to peruse at your pleasure. I’ve carefully handpicked ones, which express your client’s individuality, for a personalised bathing retreat in which to relax and unwind:

Bathroom design ideas with colour therapy

Here, colour and wellbeing cleverly combine in the bathroom for a more characterful bathing haven. So, you can discover mood-boosting tones and embrace colour therapy as your ultimate guide. I think the home will always be influenced by colour and the hues you choose may in part be determined by your client. However, the key is to cleverly use colour to help transform the bathroom into a more relaxed space. As a result, this can help to enhance elements of wellbeing.

The beauty of forest bathing

Firstly, immerse your client in nature and entwine wellbeing with the Japanese tradition of shinrin-yoku. Based on Shinto and Buddhist practice, you can enable them to experience and enjoy mindful meditation and relaxation of the body and soul. This concept, which originated in Japan in the 1980s, embraces the notion of reconnecting with the great outdoors. As a result, this can help improve physical and mental wellbeing.

Forest bathing can be one of the best modern medicines for modern living, which makes this a key megatrend. What better way is there to embrace this, than recreating the look and feel of a forest in a bathroom? Simply apply your dedicated bathroom design ideas, so your client can take time out to relax and recharge in their own personal wellness retreat.
