5 fabulous bathrooms

We hope these bathroom designs from will inspire you!

Love this makeover! Office transformed into bathroom

Chop up a narrow space to make it feel bigger? It sounds counterintuitive, but that’s just what made this new North Salem, New York, master bath seem more spacious. When Katherine Daniels and Josh Leicht bought their 1860s farmhouse, the first-floor powder room and second-floor full bath sufficed for the married couple. Then two sons came along, followed by a live-in babysitter, and their home went from cozy to cramped. So they turned a seldom-used office adjacent to the master bedroom into a bath with country views.

The new tub alcove was bumped out onto an existing wooden deck; it sits on a raised platform that conceals plumbing and wiring and protects them from the elements.

Outdoor showers: new home trend 2013

This year the trend of homeowners moving their living spaces outdoors continues with the gaining popularity of outdoor showers, and outdoor bathrooms in general. Worried about privacy? Creative landscaping can take care of that. Outdoor bathing areas are called  ”eco-friendly luxuries” but they can also be very practical, especially if you live near the beach or have a large backyard and don’t want people tracking mud or sand inside.

Simple fix for annoying problem: curved shower curtain rod

It’s an annoying problem many of us face every morning – not enough elbow room in the shower!

With a shower curtain hanging on a straight curtain rod, some showers can just seem too cramped.

Moen’s curved shower rod takes care of that by adding extra elbow room:

The new Awaken shower heads by Kohler

Kohler’s new Awaken showering collection draws inspiration from organic patterns and architectural forms. Which do you like better: Series B or Series G?


The literal translation of “a room with a bath” has evolved into a more technical description where a “full bathroom” must comprise four plumbing fixtures: bathtub, shower, toilet and sink. After these four essential elements, it is all up to us to mix and match materials to transform a utilitarian room into a peaceful private spa, a glamorous spot to put on make-up or an eco-friendly place to shave. Bathroom cabinets and bathroom vanities store the ever increasing number of necessary products. Today, well designed bathrooms are beautiful, durable and highly functional.

2013 Trends for Bathrooms

Remodeling your bathroom in 2013? Don’t forget to include a Retractable Towel Ring!

Below is an article from one of The Bath & Kitchen Showplace’s manufacturers – Moen – highlighting some of the design trends that interior designers are seeing as the “next big thing” for 2013.

Chevron patterns, glass backsplashes and retractable towel rings are just a few making their way into the latest remodels. Keep in mind that as much as you may want to incorporate the latest design trends in your home, it’s important to choose ideas that are practical and will stand the test of time. Here are some suggestions on the freshest finds out there.

The time for bold, yet neutral Chevron has come! This pattern is showing up everywhere: on kitchen walls, backsplashes, floors, throw rugs, pillows and shower curtains. Most Chevron patterns alternate black then white then black, but by playing around with alternative colors, you can lessen the impact of the design and achieve a more serene look.

Another surprising look involves the resurgence of wallpaper and the introduction of wall decals. Since the 60s, people have been using wallpaper to add an accent and some personality to a room. Both wallpaper and wall decals are now removable and a popular option to spice up your home…

If you’re looking for a convenient and eco-friendly upgrade, consider Moen’s MotionSense faucet. With just a wave of your hand, you’ll trigger the flow of water. Wave your hand again, and you’ll turn it off. Its state-of-the-art technology helps to maximize performance, minimize waste and make everyday routines faster and easier…

Another smart innovation that’s quickly growing in popularity: Moen’s Retractable Towel Ring. If you’re tired of hand towels cluttering countertops, doorknobs and floors, this is your solution. The ring secures your hand towels in place, expands out to 11″ and effortlessly retracts back to its original position. It works well in every room with a faucet, including the bathroom, kitchen, utility room and garage.

Rounding out our list of updates is the new nature-inspired bathroom. Think rustic tiles. A rock wall in the shower. Wicker baskets. A range of earthy patterns and colors. They’re all designed to achieve the feeling of a relaxing, private spa. It’s easy to create a beautiful room that feels like you’re entering an enchanted grotto or canyon.

These ideas represent just a few of the trends that are destined to become traditions. You can feel confident knowing that as current as they are, these improvements will easily stay in vogue for years to come.


Need a new toilet? Take a seat…

Replacing an inefficient or poorly performing toilet does not have to be a daunting task. New Delta toilets feature the exclusive SmartFit tank-to-bowl connection to make installaion easier and help reduce potential leak points:

Better than a shower radio

Keep the music going – even in the bathroom and shower. The KOHLER StereoStick connects to your iPod or favorite radio station to expand audio entertainment throughout your home. Its mirrored design allows it to blend into your cabinets, and its rust-resistant materials and finish ensure long-term durability against moisture.

Bathroom Design Inspiration

Which one do you like better? These two bathrooms couldn’t be more different, but they both offer an escape from everyday life with their color palettes, accessories and fixtures. Talk to a consultant at The Bath & Kitchen Showplace (22 locations across Texas) for help creating your perfect bathroom.


As a general rule, themed bathrooms are incredibly tricky to pull off without looking too childish or outdated. We’ve all seen one or two seashell-encrusted bathrooms in our lifetimes. And how about fish – swimming across the shower curtain, the wastebasket, and the accessories on the counter? Not exactly elegant or luxurious.

This bathroom we found featuring Kohler fixtures manages to communicate a theme without being overbearing. The bathroom’s statement piece – a vintage surfboard in the corner – provides the muted color palette. The light fixtures, painted wooden floor, walls, and ceiling, and the white sink and toilet all work together to create a soft look. Ultimately the bathroom is a light and airy escape, and not an overwrought mess of seashells.
