Tile in the bathroom is becoming bolder and louder than ever before. Trending styles include colorful tiles cut into unique shapes and arranged in intricate patterns.

As people become more conscious of our impact on the environment and our planet, homeowners are asking for water saving bathroom products, including eco-friendly toilets with dual flush capability and low flush settings. Homeowners may also choose to install water saving faucets and shower heads.
In recent years, bathrooms are becoming as luxurious as high end living rooms. Gone are the days when the bathroom was just about practicality and function. Now the bathroom is all about helping you relax while getting your bathroom routine done.
To make the bathroom as luxurious and relaxing as possible, people are installing whirlpool bathtubs with FM radios and chromatherapy lighting. Soaking bathtubs are installed for long baths. Sofas and lounging chairs are placed near the bathtub and chandeliers are hung above the bathtub for the ultimate in comfort and home décor.
Small built-in refrigerators in luxury bathrooms keep drinks cold, so you can grab a drink before taking a bath. Homeowners are also asking for small refrigerators built into the bathroom vanity where cosmetics can be kept at optimal temperatures.

Remodeling your bathroom with the hottest trends in mind can also help increase the value of your home if and when you choose to sell.
