In 2022, the bathroom will continue to gain in importance as an individual retreat. Thanks to innovative ranges and modern technology, there are many new possibilities for design. For example, more and more people are choosing to make their bathrooms barrier-free. Barrier-free bathrooms have long been suitable not only for people with disabilities - rather, they offer everyone additional comfort. But what are the current trends in this area? We show you which barrier-free bathroom ideas you won't be able to avoid in 2022.

Focus on the needs of the users

All in all, modern, accessible bathrooms 2022 impress with systems that optimally adapt to the individual needs of the users. Because one of the biggest disruptive factors in a comfortable bathroom are barriers - for example thresholds, edges or slippery surfaces. Modular elements can be extended or assortments used in a variety of ways depending on requirements. The following products are particularly suitable for designing a barrier-free bathroom:

  • Grab rails for the shower
  • Shower seats
  • Height-adjustable WCs
  • Modular washbasins
  • Shelves
  • Folding support handles
  • Various bathroom accessories

1. Skilfully setting accents with colours

In 2022, significantly more colours will come into play again. In addition to high-quality materials, which are still important in a bathroom that is meant to last, special areas in the bathroom can be highlighted using colours.

For example, using our bathroom fittings. With the single-lever washbasin mixer, not only the water quantity and temperature can be conveniently adjusted. The control lever is available in 16 different colours, including orange and red. The colours can be chosen as desired - for example to match the existing bathroom furnishings.

2. Consider hygiene in the home bathroom


In 2022, hygiene remains important to protect oneself and others from infections. While doctors' surgeries or public office buildings often have disinfectant dispensers available for this purpose in the entrance area, this is not absolutely necessary in one's own home. It is much more important to wash your hands thoroughly. Especially when you come home, after going to the toilet and before eating.

With our bathroom accessories, we offer the right products for this. For example, soap dispensers with holder, soap dishes and waste bins, where waste can be disposed of hygienically.
