New design trends are rapidly expanding the role of the bathroom. A lot of these changes are high-tech oriented: including showerheads that double as stereo speakers and bathtubs with hidden speakers. Video screens, cellphone charging stations, coffeemakers, and refrigerated medicine cabinets are all options that are now available. Homeowners are also looking for a spa-like experience in the bathroom, with features like showers with steam and tubs with chromatherapy (soothing lights that change color). The All New Bathroom Ideas that Work will address these new design trends as well as the growing focus on seamlessly incorporating accessibility into bathroom design.
