Bathroom Trends to Try

STEAM SHOWER.  Great for sore muscles, colds and relaxing. Stretch the glass enclosure to the ceiling, install a proper moisture barrier, and add a swivel steam vent above the shower door.

SHOWER NICHE.  Built for beauty and function, a niche creates a focal point in the space. Splurge on a textured or interesting  tile insert and make the niche tall enough to fit the bottles you commonly use.

HEATED FLOOR. Once considered a luxury, heated floors are becoming increasingly popular in new and renovated homes. Treat yourself and appeal to future buyers at the same time.

CURBLESS SHOWER. A curbless shower doesn’t just open up a space and make it feel bigger, it reduces tripping hazards and conforms to the principles of universal design.  

LINEAR DRAIN.  Reinforce the streamlined aesthetic of a curbless shower with a linear drain. Not only are they sleek and stylish, they remove water more efficiently, meaning less chance of mold and mildew buildup.

BIG TILE.  With fewer grout lines, larger format tiles make a space feel more open, streamlined and sleek, adding to a high-end look.

DUAL SHOWER HEADS.  A rain shower head and separate handset offers a luxurious, invigorating and customizable shower experience.


Unless you have supreme DIY skills, hire a professional to renovate your bathroom. It’s the worst room to make a mistake in due to the potential damage from water.

"Before you decide against a tub, give some serious thought to the types of buyers who might be interested
in buying your property down the line.

My advice is that you should always have
at least one tub in the house."
