As we turn the page into not only a new year, but also a new decade, you may be thinking about a fresh start with a bathroom renovation project that will bring your home into the “20s”. With that in mind, you might be searching for design inspiration and we are pleased to be the source for your fresh intel!
Below we explore three of the hottest designs emerging from bathroom design and manufacturing tastemakers.
Floating vanities like this custom frameless one by Woodharbor bring a modern, weightless aesthetic to keep the bathroom looking light and airy despite the dark door front color. Lighting beneath the vanity illuminates the floor and provides more safety during trips to the loo in the middle of the night.
Ahhhh-mazing Shower Experiences
Real Rain from Kohler brings the exhilaration of a summer storm to the shower. The look and feel of natural rain is accomplished in numerous ways. First, an innovative sprayface design has a unique nozzle geometry that simulates rain by adjusting the size of the water drops. The rates at which the drops fall is also varying and random, just like in a true rainstorm.
To recreate the feel of a growing storm, the shower is designed with a water reservoir that relies on gravity rather than the typical pressurized spray to shape the water, using 775 concave nozzles to start the storm off slowly and then build. The pitter patter of drops grows in intensity as it swells into a warm summer storm. Finally, to capture the moment the sky opens up and the rain truly pours down, the on-demand Deluge feature releases the water in the reservoir, soaking the bather in an extravagant flood of water.

New Cabinets & Mirrors with Task Lighting
Personal grooming is an important part of daily life. Many tasks considered essential to proper hygiene and appearance take place in the bathroom, in front of the mirror – oral care, skin care, hair care, applying makeup, hair removal, etc. And appropriate lighting is crucial in this space. Kohler addresses this need directly with the launch of its new Verdera lighted cabinets and mirrors that bring true grooming task lighting to the bathroom. The Verdera enhanced cabinet features the option of a flip-out flat mirror or magnifying mirror, along with slow-close functionality to eliminate slamming.
The Verdera lights are compatible with most LED dimmers to give you even more control over your lighting experience, including pairing with Amazon’s Alexa system.
