3. Wall-mounted Faucets

This new trend is really gaining traction in some of the more recent bathroom remodels. It’s really great for shallow vanities that don’t have a lot of space. They also give a bathroom a unique edge over other remodels.

4. Floor-to-Ceiling Glass Showers

This trend is very popular among homeowners in the Okanagan right now. A glass shower enclosure that stretches uninterrupted from floor to ceiling gives a bathroom a seamless look. It can also make the bathroom look much bigger than it actually is.

7. Off-kilter Tubs

Sometimes creating a trendy yet unique design involves going against your own natural instincts. That’s what an off-kilter tub will call for. Placing a standalone tub at an angle in the corner of the bathroom instead of squaring it up will add an interesting perspective.
