When it comes to building a new commercial washroom, there are many decisions to make. After you have found a builder and designed the layout, choosing the right products and materials is key. Businesses should make sure to think clearly and make smart decisions around restroom design. It’s important because many customers will consider this resource as a part of the company’s overall aesthetic. In fact, many customers will choose not to frequent a certain business if the bathroom and washroom accessories are not up to certain standards. To make sure you are communicating your business’s brand in the best way possible, try incorporating some of the latest trends. We have broken down four of the top restroom design trends in 2022 below.
#1: Less is more.
The top trend of 2022? Minimalism. Modern businesses want to display a clean, simple look in every aspect of their brand. In its most basic definition, minimalism is about designers expressing only the most essential and necessary elements of a product or subject. They do this by getting rid of any excess and, therefore, unnecessary components and features.
Mainstays of this style include details like:
- Simplicity in design to serve the overall function
- Clean lines and compositions
- Bright and natural lighting
- Lighter and more neutral colors
At ASI, we offer the Simplicity collection, which combines seamless construction and crisp design lines, this elegant collection provides strength, comfort, beauty, and durability.
#2: Moody black accents.
If simplicity is the overarching theme of the year, then it makes sense that neutral colors should follow. As the King of a neutral color palette, the color black packs a bigger punch. The color creates a big impact, adding dimension to neutral spaces as well as a modern edge.
According to an interview with Homes & Gardens, Athina Bluff, Founder & Senior Designer at Topology Interiors, says: “Black is most definitely back and we love it. It’s versatile, timeless, and classic and could be likened to being the little black dress of interiors.” Additionally, Kerrie Kelly and National Kitchen & Bath Association say “…the focus on Millennials means the design industry can expect to see more organic features and natural finishes with an emphasis on warm hues, wood tones, more matte and brushed finishes, and plenty of texture and nubbiness, all to create a home that supports a chosen lifestyle.”
At ASI, we offer the Matte Black collection, which provides a chic alternative for modern washrooms. Versatile and powder-coated for added durability, these accessories are ready to make a sophisticated statement in any setting.
#3: The easier, the better.
Another trend that follows the line of simplicity is “the easier, the better.” Ease of use is crucial for so many people in 2022. According to the same Ms. Kelly and the National Kitchen & Bath Association, touchless products, such as kitchen appliances and washroom accessories, are top of mind.
“Technology, too, will be a major player. In the kitchen, that means touchless fixtures, app-controlled appliances, voice-activated lighting, and recycling storage. In the bath, the trends are toward larger showers (and even removing tubs), shower “experiences” drawn from spa-at-home and staycation concepts, sustainability and connected products such as water-temperature controls and entertainment.”
At ASI, we offer automated and touchless washroom accessories to follow this trend and make usability as easy as possible.
#4: Industrial tones at home
Finally, for a sleek bold look, try to incorporate industrial accents. In fact, rustic industrial design is having a huge moment right now thanks to HGTV’s Chip and Joanna Gaines. This style, which blends rustic wooden accents with stainless steel and sleek colors and accents, is the best of both worlds.
At ASI, we offer stainless steel accessories that fit right in with this unique trend in 2022. Engineered for high-profile settings, this collection adds elegance, durability, and exceptional functionality to any washroom without becoming the focal point.
