Practical storage will never go out of style. Whenever possible, take advantage of vertical space and take your cabinetry up the wall. If built-in cabinetry isn't an option, incorporate an interesting or antique piece of furniture. Open shelving is still a popular trend that can also be quite practical in the bathroom.
White subway tile never goes out of style. White subway tile can be paired with most any look. Make it the base for casual industrial style or dress it up with traditional-style furniture and fixtures for timeless look. White subway is best used with a dark color grout like gray or black. Especially in the bathroom because it is less likely to get stained with mold and soap residue. For an even greater effect, choose three-dimensional tile.
According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA), showers are becoming far more popular than tubs. So accordingly, high-tech spa-like body sprays, water jets and showerheads are becoming more commonplace.
Fully enclosed steam showers with multiple showerheads are a luxury that is becoming more conventional in new homes and remodeled master bathrooms. It's nice to have a place to sit and enjoy your Zen-like walk-in shower, thus built-in and portable benches are an extra-added luxury that doesn't have to break the budget.
No-threshold showers along with comfort-height toilets, vanities and side-mount faucets are gaining in popularity for very practical reasons. Curbless showers are easier to clean, they make your bathroom look bigger, and they help homeowners to age in place.

Kohler has taken multitasking to a new level with its all-in-one showerhead and speaker combo. Double the relaxation by binge-watching your favorite show while soaking in a warm bath.

Sometimes luxury can come in the form of a little extra-added warmth. Warm toes and a warm towel can make all the difference on a cold winter's morning. Electric in-floor heating systems are relatively easy to install and doesn't cost much to operate. Controlled by their own thermostat, these systems don't replace your main heating unit - they augment it. Towel warmers come in two forms, as a wall mounted accessory or a cabinet.
A bathroom is the perfect place to get a little daring in your design choices. Try a set of unusual sconces, an ornate chandelier or a set of funky pendants. With bathrooms becoming larger and more elaborate, proper lighting is essential to making the most of the space. Proper bathroom lighting requires a lot of thought and shouldn't be overlooked. A good lighting plan is a series of layers — placing ample light where it is needed for showers, shaving, or putting on makeup, for instance, while other light sources enhance the overall mood of the room.
