Your bathrooms take a lot of wear and tear over the years and an updated bathroom is one of the things many buyers are looking for in a new home. Trends definitely come and go for bathrooms, but there are some classic designs that stand the test of time.

Making a "wet room" and placing your tub in a large shower is all over the place recently.


Some current trends in bathroom lighting are favoringwarm yellow lighting, bulb shaped fixtures, and hidden lighting that resembles lighting in chic boutiques such asled strips under cabinets. Lighting is a part of the bathroom where you can make a style statement that can still stay through changing trends. For the makeup do-ers lighting is important because your face can look completely different depending on the light, that's why many opt for a changingled light mirror.

Minimalism Vs. Maximalism-

In the past 5-10 years minimalism has been the trend; grey walls, Swedish influence, open layouts, and emphasis on hidden organization have been all over. Even with theme changes such as boho and farmhouse, minimalism has still been at the core of home design for a while now. Those who love it, love it but recently there's been a shift to what's called Maximialism- the use of more of a full or cluttered look, bright color and "matched mismatch". Bathrooms specifically have been an area people have been showing some creativity recently such as abstract shaped fixtures and lighting, colored tile, wood features and many more.

Shower Doors

Another change that has come is that people have begun to favor glass shower doors over curtains. One thing people may have forgotten is that shower doors have many crooks and crannies for mold to hide in so just keep that in mind when it comes to maintenance.
