Pure Earth Tones

You can never go wrong with earth tones – beige, blond, blue, green and ash charcoals detailed with trendy brass trim, black and white metals.   

Terrazo Effect

Clear shapes and designs as well as dynamic modern arrangement can be achieved by the usage of tiles in different textures and shades.     

Dimensional Tile

Various symmetrical or asymmetrical patters, 3D patterns, waves and geometric, etc. Also, iridescent finishes, metallic hues and mother-of-pearl add modern sparkle.

Storage Options

Utilize your vertical wall space to the maximum. If you are space constrained incorporate a narrow or small piece of furniture or freestanding cabinet. Open shelving is yet another option. 

Luxury Showers

Custom-built enclosed steam shower room with high-tech, spa-like body sprays, water jets, multi-functional and adjustable showerheads, slip-resistant tiles, proper lighting, grab bars, nooks, and portable benches are becoming commonplace in homes. Walk-in combination bathtub/shower for easy accessibility, even ADA-compliant features have shown to increase a home’s value because you are offering options others are not. Furthermore, floating vanities and toilets offer ease-of-use and cleaning, customization, style and practicality. A seamless glass shower gives the illusion of a larger bath.

Warmth and Dryness in Every Sense

In-floor radiant heat is becoming more popular and is offered in electric or hydronic. These systems may need separate installation and cost more. If budget is a concern, consider purchasing an electric mat and/or electric towel warmer.

What’s More Illuminating?

Ambient lighting is the way to go.  A set of unique sconces, an ornate chandelier, a pair of small table lamps, or sun tubes.

Privacy and Practicality

Installing a tall cabinet provides additional storage and avoids cluttering precious countertop space. Additionally, hiding the commode behind a half-wall, fogged glass or decorative screen can provide a nice hideaway without making your bathroom appear small. Opt for a smaller, deeper tub, or if you have room, a boat-shaped, overflow tub or curvaceous tub.   

Water-Efficiency Options

We cannot emphasize this enough: water-conserving toilets, faucets and showerheads go a long way on saving money on monthly bills.
