                                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.

The TOTO’s NEOREST NX2 distinguishes itself from the NX1 with

Penny tile can give any bathroom a polished look. Image: Hisbalit

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Think Wallpaper is Outdated?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

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

Traditional bathroom designs are taking a back seat to a more spa-like, clean and minimal look, according to the National Kitchen + Bath Association (NKBA). 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

The design is the work of Canadian expert sculptor, Christopher Shannon, who painstakingly crafted the faucet in his Victoria, British Columbia studio.

While being released in a new raw material, the concrete faucet still maintains the original design’s geometric form. The nature of the hand-poured material results in a textural finish and color that will add a lovely sculptural element to any bathroom sink.

Only 500 of the Vettis™ Concrete Faucets are being released so if you’re interested reserve the $2500 faucet soon right here.

Tips for installing your outdoor shower

“Outdoor showers are a nice feature for pool owners or beachfront homes,” says Jarret Acevedo, a master plumber and owner of Jarret Acevedo Plumbing and Heating. However, depending on how low your temperatures drop in the winter, you’ll need to take precautions with your shower. “Care is definitely needed to plumb it properly to protect from freezing if it’s an area with frigid temperatures,” Acevedo warns.
