Sleek with rectilinear forms, these pieces are unabashedly contemporary and available in a range of colors and finishes allowing for individual expression to unfold. An extensive collection, Memento is comprised of wall and surface-mounted washbasins, vanities, cabinets, mirrors, toilets and a bidet.

The hottest bathroom remodeling idea is an indoor/outdoor bathroom. Don’t worry about privacy, the latest bathroom tech includes electric privacy glass — glass that instantly switches from clear to frosted at a flick of a switch. Window manufacturers have also designed windows and skylights with built in shades between the glass panels that can open and close electronically. Ways to add the indoor/outdoor look to your bathroom include: An outdoor shower with a glass door for access from the bathroom, A large glass wall or window in front of a tub or shower with a beautiful garden outside, Skylights that bring the view of the sky into the bathroom, A wall of plants in the bathroom that bring the outdoors in, A zen shower with low maintenance succulent garden and river rock bedding surroundings.
Tile flooring is common in bathrooms and offers a nice alternative to hardwoods, which can get warped if they are exposed to too much water. If you decide to put ceramic tile on the floor, look for a grade of 1 or 2, a water-absorption rating of less than 7 percent and a coefficient of friction above .60, which are slip-resistant and can stand up to water. Also pay attention to porosity; you’ll want a more impervious tile for the floor because of exposure to water. Vinyl feels better on bare feet than ceramic tile, and it’s one of the more popular flooring choices as it’s inexpensive and practical (safe, easy to install and maintain).
Choosing to make a personal design statement by installing a unique bathroom vanity can be a good start to create a space that reflects your personal styles and tastes. Many designers and creative craftspeople visit tag and yard sales, estate sales, flea markets, and even salvage yards looking for an unusual piece of furniture to convert into a unique bathroom vanity.
