Storage, Storage, Storage
This has always been popular– but it is huge in 2015. Creative storage solutions are all the rage. This could be hidden compartments in vanities or unique shelving in showers.  We are finding extra storage in all of your bathroom’s spaces.




Exciting Lighting
To keep the bathroom at its brightest, why not add a skylight to flood the room with natural light? In addition, LED lighting provides a uniquely modern vibe, while natural sunlight simulators can provide a gentle glow.


Unexpected Surfaces
Textured tiles on the floor and in the shower can really spice up a bathroom– giving it a dynamic and varied feel. Mixing and matching with marble or onyx also elevates the space, giving it a completely revamped, modern look.


Keeping Warm
Through new technology, staying toasty in the bathroom is easy. Heated floor tiles are extremely popular, and give your feet a subtle, cozy warm boost as you walk around. Also, you could add a small sauna or steam room to really pamper yourself.
