We've noticed parallels between trends in the kitchen and the bath before. A bathroom is more than a room of necessity; it's a place for pampering. It should be beautiful as well as efficient and easy to clean.
Sleek, white on white, Scandinavian design keeps us coming back for more. It's a modern, clean and ongoing trend. The addition of wood adds warmth, and shades of gray add depth through the use of paint, tile, concrete, and other stone products.
If your space is small, designing for storage is crucial. This means incorporating smart solutions for counters and providing surfaces that don't become vast collectors of dust and unnecessary objects. Vanities that are lifted or wall hung make cleaning the floor much easier.
