                                Design Milk headed to Las Vegas to check out the 2019 <a href="https://www.kbis.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS)</a> where all the latest designs are unveiled. With over 600 top brands on display, there&#8217;s <em>a lot</em> to see and it&#8217;s impossible to share it all, so we&#8217;ve narrowed it down to some favorites.

DXV’s clean, modern bathroom setup was perfection.

Bertazzoni launched compact kitchen appliances that offer the same high-end capabilities as their larger ones.

Thermador had a bold kitchen setup, the Connected Experience by Home Connect, that featured bright green and orange stripes mixed with grey.

Dacor displayed modern ovens in fresh colors, including a very close match to Pantone’s Color of the Year – Living Coral.

True Residential launched their brand new vibrant color option – Emerald – as part of their Build Your True Color Program.

The innovative spray, from the leading manufacturer of bathroom fixtures, outputs micro-fine droplets that minimize splashing and help to maintain warmth on your skin – perfect for open showers. It was also designed to create a ‘cocoon’ of water that surrounds your body to create a spa-like experience right in your own bathroom.

What creates this kind of spray? Each nozzle has several fine openings rather than one spray outlet, they’re also arranged more densely than on a standard shower head. If you think this must equal poor water pressure you’re wrong, the PowderRain shower head I installed in my own home only succeeded in

Should You Use Hardwood Floors in Kitchens and Bathrooms?

Hardwood floors offer a number of benefits. They are both incredibly beautiful, and incredibly easy to clean. They are a great option for allergy sufferers as carpets can aggravate symptoms. Even homeowners without allergies can enjoy the seamless look of hardwood flooring.

However, water can easily damage or warp these types of materials. So, is it a good idea to install hardwood floors in kitchens and bathrooms? Freshome asked several experts, including designers, realtors and water damage restoration experts to weigh in on this topic.

Pros of hardwood floors

Dave Murphy, the training director of N-Hance Wood Refinishing, believes that hardwood floors make an excellent choice in the kitchen. “Hardwood flooring is stylish and sustainable, comes in a variety of natural colors, and doesn’t absorb dust or debris, making it easy to clean and maintain,” he

These Bathtubs Will Make You Want to Soak for Hours

While most people prefer to take showers, there’s something about being able to soak in a bathtub that’s downright therapeutic. You can just sit and relax in a tub in a way that’s not possible when you take a shower. Being submerged in water can actually relieve stress and soothe aching muscles. And when you add bubble bath – well, that’s another level of relaxation.

If you’re a shower person, these bathtubs might change your mind. Here’s what you need to know.

The Most Popular Bathtub

According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association’s 2018 Design Trends report, 87 percent of professionals (designers, remodelers, architects, dealers and manufacturers) list freestanding tubs as their favorite. White is the dominant fixture color, with 78 percent of respondents choosing it over silver/gray or beige tones.

                                Amongst the cacophony of electronics, devices, and monumental exhibitions on display, alongside the thousands of attendees shuffling through the halls of CES 2019, the amusing irony of stopping to admire a toilet while frantically searching for a public restroom was not lost on us. But the <a href="https://www.totousa.com/neorest-nx2-dual-flush-toilet-10-gpf-08-gpf"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">TOTO NEOREST NX2 Intelligent Toilet with ACTILIGHT</a> is anything but a standard bathroom fixture, the apex of toilet technology hailing from Japan.

Each of the TOTO Neorest NX Series toilets shares the same water smoothed pebble shaped design.

While previous TOTO Neorest toilets were characterized by a sharply angular silhouette, TOTO reps at CES stressed the NEOREST NX series now exhibits a soft elliptical profile inspired by “the natural beauty of pebbles shaped by water over time”. The design and technologies integrated into this luxe loo earned TOTO a CES 2019 Innovation Awards Honoree designation.

15 Bathrooms That Will Make You Fall in Love With Penny Tile

Tile in the bathroom might sound as original as florals for spring. But like any good floral print, the wow factor of the tile all comes down to the one you choose. Don’t be square! The penny tile (also known as a penny round) is a small tile in a round or hexagonal shape that can help you make a visual impact in your bathroom.

Penny tiles are often spotted in historic homes, but we’re also starting to see them in the hippest coffee shops and hottest bars. Why? They add an interesting aesthetic, they’re extremely versatile and – like any good tile – they’re also easy to maintain in even the wettest areas.

Think Wallpaper is Outdated? It Can Actually Update Your Bathroom


This post is by Terri Williams from Freshome.com - Interior Design & Architecture Magazine

Wallpaper. Just the sight or sound of that word usually evokes 18th Century scenic or floral images or, worse, the gaudy, headache-inducing designs that were widely – and wildly – popular in the 1970s. However, wallpaper is making a comeback. Maybe “reincarnation” is a better word since, thankfully, the new trend in wallpaper looks radically different from the styles of yesteryear.

In fact, wallpaper can actually be used in the bathroom to create glamour, elegance, drama and even fun. Below are some of the various options to consider:

You don’t have to wallpaper the entire bathroom. Used sparingly, like the wallpaper applied below the chair rail molding in the photo above, it can still create a powerful impression. “Wallpaper done tastefully can add character to any room, especially bathrooms and bedrooms,” says Angela

The organization queried hundreds of designers, remodelers, architects, manufacturers and dealers to discover the trends in bathroom styles, sinks and tubs, cabinets, lighting, flooring, colors and other elements.

Freshome asked trend spotter Elle H-Millard, Certified Kitchen Designer and Industry Relations Manager at the NKBA, for photos and comments on key design trends in U.S. bathrooms. Here are the NKBA bathroom design trends you should know.

We hope you like the products we recommend. Just so you are aware, Freshome may collect a share of sales from the links on this page. 

Just because your bathroom lacks space doesn’t mean it can’t be functional. You simply have to figure out clever, space-saving ways to lay it out. In most bathrooms, the sink cabinet is often too large and lacking in useful storage. Take back some of your tiny bathroom. Replace old, outdated cabinets with one of these modern small bathroom vanities.

Wall-mounted small bathroom vanities

One of the best ways to open up the flow of a tiny bathroom is by wall-mounting your bath vanity. Add baskets or boxes below the vanity for extra storage. Or, you can also leave the space open for a clean, minimalist feel. Wall-mounting a small bathroom vanity takes a little extra work – the vanity must be anchored to
