Bathroom trends making a comeback in 2022

Love them or hate them, these bathroom trends, identified by Villeroy & Boch, are ensuring that bathrooms are anything but conventional…

As we all know, for better or worse, trends often repeat themselves. From fashion to music, beauty to interior design, you can often spot the nods of appreciation toward times gone by.

However, there are few more striking examples of this, than with the evolution of bathroom design. From the reintroduction of complementary coloured suites, to contrasting flashes of colour, it’s easy to appreciate the stylish examples of history repeating itself in the very best ways.

Making a reappearance are many of the designs and colours which we associate with the 1970s. Villeroy & Boch has taken a stroll down memory lane, to look through their photo archives taken from catalogues from the 1970s to see which bathroom trends are making a comeback…

Below are three key bathroom trends that are making a comeback in 2022:

Avocado is back, or is it?

A slightly less garish take on the ‘avocado green’ bathrooms of the 1970s, softer accents of sage and olive are set to be huge in 2022. Balancing out the tone of the green with a more neutral colour palette helps to create a soothing place to relax and unwind. Villeroy & Boch’s Finion vanity unit in olive matt lacquer, paired with the Villeroy & Boch Artis washbasin in sage green is the perfect confirmation. The natural shades create an atmosphere of assurance and vitality in your bathroom, perfect for a moment’s peace.

Hello, yellow!

 A bright yellow bathroom suite was all the rage in the 1970s. While a yellow toilet might be off the cards, if  you are looking to add a touch of sunshine to your bathroom, a yellow feature wall paired with the perfectly formed Villeroy & Boch Artis washbasin in Indian summer gives a tasteful pop of colour. The bright shades of yellow will give your bathroom the positive vibes of a warm summer holiday all year around!

A triadic colour scheme is making a comeback. This trend refers to rooms featuring three different shades from different sectors of the colour wheel. Historically, this may include bold shades such as cadmium yellow, post box red, and celeste blue. Today, we are more likely to see a muted scheme, with darker accents, a splash of vibrant colour and a more calming pastel shade to bring harmony to the space.
