    Large walk-in showers are exploding in popularity. With tons of tile options, multiple layouts to choose from and dozens of completely customizable add-on features – your options are endless. You can combine things like dual shower heads, rainfall fixtures, steam spouts, hand-held sprayers and water-saving fittings to transform your so-so shower into the spa-like oasis you’ve always dreamed of.

  • Modern Tile:


    Re-tiling is another great (and often inexpensive) way to update your bathroom. Tile comes in thousands of shapes, sizes and colors, so your design options are nearly limitless. You can incorporate a strip of smaller stones in among large tile slabs as seen above, create fun patterns with complimentary colors or mix and match styles to create a completely custom look you love.

  • Smart Technology:


    Technology is taking over many facets of life, and interior design is no exception. You can outfit your bathroom with digital panels that let you customize your shower experience, automatic anti-fog mirrors or bluetooth speakers that connect to your phone so you enjoy music while you suds up. For homeowners who live in a colder climate, heated flooring is another popular and functional choice.

  • Simple Storage:

    Open shelving allows you to simultaneously showcase decor and store bathroom necessities in a visually appealing way. Use colorful towels, vases, candles or trinkets to give your space some visual pop. An added bonus of this design is it’s always easy to find what you’re looking for!

As you plan out your bathroom renovation, consider incorporating one or more of these trendy updates to transform your space from simple to serene.
