Transform your bathrooms from a functional room into an aesthetically pleasing and stylish room adding elegance your home by having some key features.

Walk-in Showers

There is a school of thought that suggests having larger showers will continue to trend in 2015.  You can move away from shower cubicles and create space with a walk-in shower.  These walk-in showers offer oversized panes of glass or sold walls that completely enclose the space.

Designers believe that the trend of moving away from compact showering areas to ones that are more generous in size is because larger showers are spaces for rejuvenation and wellness.  This trend also adds accessibility for anyone, particularly seniors, who might have a hard time stepping up and over to access their showers.

Free-Standing Bathtubs:

So you are not really convinced to give up your bathtub just yet. The free standing bathtub remains popular not only because they offer sculptural design features, but they help set the mood for rest and relaxation.  “The freestanding bath is more than aesthetic — it is emotive,” one designer says. “Clients connect with the possibility of a bathroom that symbolizes their own space or downtime, and a freestanding bath inspires this feeling of self-indulgence in the midst of a busy life.”

Geometric tiles:

Another major design trend for the bathroom is geometric tiles. Geometric tiles are a great design solution for those who wish to add depth and visual interest to a plain, neutral space, but without the use of bright, arresting tones. If you are not colour shy this is a great option to consider.

A designer suggested that there are no limits to colour combinations or random colour placement to really showcase and lift a bathroom. A bold red geometric tile can infuse a room with a hearty dose of high-impact drama, energy and tactile appeal.
