Bathroom remodels are taking over the world! Ok, not the world, but bathroom remodels are taking over the year. 2016 is going to be a big year for bathrooms that will dominate the remodel game. The number one trend in bathroom remodels will be; Personalization.

What you need to do to rock this year’s bathroom remodel:

-Focus attention on a main focal point in the bathroom. Emphasizing a bay window, free standing tub, or playing up the drama with a grand light fixture, are examples of creating a focal point. When someone walks into your newly remodeled bathroom you want them to be amazed, but also have one feature really stand out. Here is a good article to draw some inspiration for your focal point.

- Make your fixtures bold, statement pieces. You may always hear that fixtures are an easy way to update your bathroom, but bold fixtures will give you better results.  Check out:

- Modernize your bathroom with wall tile and subway tiles. Subway tiles have yet to go out of style, and this year slate gray, winter white, and cobalt blue color schemes are in trend. Wall tiles may be a great way to create a focal point with a patterned tile or design.

- Add a Walk in shower with frameless glass enclosures, and free standing tub to be ahead of the trends. This will add a spa like feature, and create more of a relaxing atmosphere.

- Turn to Zen inspired designs for that extra relaxing feel. Heated rocks, calming water features and indoor plants can add to this design.

Now you cannot skip out on Technology for your bathroom this year. On the level above water resistant sound systems, bathrooms are being equipped with self-cleaning toilets, and a new product from Kohler. Kohler has raised the bar this time, and developed a touchscreen Digital Showering System that is based on real life hydrotherapies. This DTV Digital Showering System has 6 user presets to help save your favored experience. What is the best part? We can’t decide if the temperature controlled settings, lights set to music, or hydrotherapy is our favorite. Best bet is to get this new technology installed in your bathroom remodel and let us know what your favorite feature is.
