You’re in “update” mode and feverishly browsing Pinterest for ideas that appeal to you. We know you want this reno to count, so we’ve assembled these dreamy bathroom ideas. Which is right for your home? That’s for you to decide.
But whenever you’re working on an update, it’s good to know what the design scuttlebutt is. The trick is choosing the trends with longer term appeal. For example, subway tile has been around for a long time, changing only in color and dimension, whereas carpet in the bathroom is never coming back.
And we’re very happy that carpet in the bathroom is never coming back, aren’t you?
So, let’s see what’s happening in the world of dreamy bathroom ideas right now.
Dark and Delicious
The spotless appeal of the all-white bathroom is some people’s cup of tea.
But it’s not written in stone.
This year, bathrooms are trending toward darker colors in walls, fixtures, tiles and fittings. Black is the obvious trend but it’s not the whole story.
Colors like aubergine, indigo blue and deep rouge noirs (red blacks) are making their way into the bathroom, creating an air of mystery and luxurious pampering.
Float Like a Butterfly
The standard bathroom vanity can be a little dull, but this year’s model changes the game.
The floating vanity has arrived in residential bathrooms. Once found only in tony restaurants, bars and sometimes hotels, the look of the floating vanity in a home imparts a sense of personal pampering, adding another dimension of design elegance to your bathroom.
Materials like wood and polished concrete, as well as stone and marble make this a particularly exciting and practical trend.
Walk Right In
Walk in showers are a huge trend this year and imminently practical. With no lip to step over, they’re also exceptionally safe for older people and children.
Just add a splash guard from Accurate Glass & Mirror and suddenly, your bathroom’s on point, with seamless style that will stand you in good stead well into the future.
This year’s incarnation of the glass shower stall features floor to ceiling glass, for a clean, spare look that displays carefully selected tile and adds an attractive focal point to your bathroom.
Again, you open the door and walk in, with no lip to step over. And with AGM installing it, you’ll have a beautiful addition to your bathroom that stands up to the rigors of family bathrooms, especially when you add Diamon-Fusion protective coating!
As you can see, we’ve selected innovations which are both practical and beautiful. So, if you’re embroiled in a state of “update fever”, we’ve got the right trends to keep your remodel looking as fresh as a daisy.

It goes without saying that we don’t necessarily want anyone else to be in the bathroom while we’re showering. But when you don’t live alone and there’s only one bathroom, what we want and what we get are two different things. People freely come and go as you go about your daily cleansing ritual. Sometimes… Continue Reading
Bringing your bathroom into the 21st Century isn’t necessarily about reproducing the set of Star Wars (or the Jetsons). Rather, it’s about simple lines and a sleek, clutter-free vibe. Modern bathroom décor is more about the use of space than it is about the imposition of design elements. The fixtures and other essentials of the… Continue Reading

Is there anything sadder than hard water deposits having their way with your frameless shower enclosure? Degenerating from gleaming showpiece to spotty mess happens faster than you might think. Even though frameless shower enclosures are low-maintenance, they can still fall victim to the plague of spotting and discoloration caused by hard water deposits. So, you… Continue Reading
The latest trend in bathrooms is to eliminate the traditional bathtub altogether. While many of us still love the idea of a nice soak in the tub, new home buyers are opting for showers with a larger footprint which create an attractive focal point in their bathrooms. And the same is true of renovations. Homeowners… Continue Reading
The shower is about a lot more than getting clean. A shower should be functional (or it wouldn’t be there) but it should also be beautiful and uniquely suited to the needs of your family. And a shower with a sleek and modern shower door featuring easy access makes the experience of showering even more… Continue Reading
They say we’re one, big human family. And if there’s one thing most of us can agree on and sing “Kumbaya” about, it’s having a spotlessly clean bathroom. It’s the ideal we aspire to. And to get that spotlessly clean effect, we sometimes err on the abrasive side – even corrosive commercial cleaners to get… Continue Reading
