Take a look at these stunning new materials and smart products to update your bath.
1. Cutting Edge Tiles
Water-jet technology allows for amazingly intricate mosaic tile designs such as Artistic Tile’s “Estrella,” a floral pattern handcrafted from glass.
2. Sculptural Soak
Carved from one block of gray Cumulo granite with sinuous graining, the “Papillon” bathtub from Stone Forest offers a spa-like soak in a work of art.
3. Golden light
Wall sconces add soft, intimate lighting, and the Fredrick Ramond “Eve” sconce in Champagne Gold ups the glam factor too.
4. Classic Console
The DXV “Oak Hill” fire clay sink with satin-brass faucet and console legs combines classic farmhouse and sleek modern form.
5. Bridge Faucets
Longtime favorites for kitchens, vintage-style bridge faucets add charm to the bath as well. Brizo’s “Tresa” with cross handles comes in chrome, polished and brushed nickel, and Venetian Bronze. While it may look old-fashioned, the high-arch spout hides a water-efficient aerator that ensures the faucet meets modern Water Sense conservation standards.
6. Sleek Storage
Robern packs a lot of practicality into its mirrored AiO cabinets. Integrated linear dimmable LED lights are flush with the mirror’s face, providing ideal task lighting for grooming. Interiors are also lighted and equipped with electrical outlets, USB ports, a magnetic storage strip, and Bluetooth audio capabilities.
7. Elegant Drains
A tile-insert linear shower drain such as this one in satin bronze from Infinity Drains enhances rather than detracts from a walk-in shower’s marble and tile surfaces. California Faucets also offers several stylish options including CeraLine, a linear channel drain, and StyleDrains, a collection of decorative round and square drains.
