Classic White

White is a classic choice that doesn’t go old. While it can be tempting to gravitate to fixtures in trendy colors, keep in mind that these can become dated quite quickly. Remember the powdered blue and pastel pink tubs and toilets that used to be a popular choice? If you love color and want to incorporate it into your bathroom, consider using color on pieces like the faucet or decorative items that are much easier to change down the line if the color starts to look outdated, especially if you plan to sell your home in the near future.

Tub as a Focal Point

Using a freestanding tub as a focal point in the bathroom is a popular choice and adds a feeling luxury to your bathroom that won’t go out of style. Short on space? Create an oversized shower with a linear shower drain from Quartz by ACO for a seamless look and then install the tub inside the shower! You get that same trendy look without needing as much space for a separate tub and shower!


Technology has found its way into almost all areas of our lives and the bathroom is no different. There are many options available to improve the functionality and comfort of your bathroom. Riobel recently released a new product that lets you easily control the water temperature in your shower for comfort and safety. Many companies now offer shower heads with built in LED lighting, speakers and more. Smart toilets with automated flushing, lids that close and open on their own, integrated bidets and even self-cleaning options are a popular choice as are mirrors with TVs, touch screens and lighting built in. While new technologies are always being added to the list, choose fixtures that offer options that will improve the comfort and function of your bathroom and you’re sure to love them for many years to come.
