    Why You Might Want to Put Your Tub in the Shower

    Putting your bathtub in the shower may be an unexpected idea, but it’s a solid one and a growing trend in bathroom design.

    Sure, it looks great, but what does it mean from a practical standpoint? For one, kids (and grown-ups) can splash all they want in the tub without having to worry about water damage or a mess. Two, the right tub model can double as a great shower bench or spot to perch your leg on while shaving.

    Curious if this will work in your new bathroom? Take a look at these examples and learn what questions to ask your contractor before implementing this design... more

    Tips for Creating Your Own Wetroom

    The idea is fairly simple: Take a room, put a drain in the middle of it, and tile all four walls. You now have your very own wetroom. While this concept is popular in Europe, it has not gained the popularity or exposure here in the States. But as our nation continues to age, the idea of barrier-free interiors continues to be a focus in home remodeling, and wetrooms are the epitome of barrier-free spaces. Everything is raised up off the floor, and there are no internal walls, doors or shower curbs to get in the way.

    Wetrooms present one particular design challenge: How do you make a room full of tile and cold surfaces inviting? Here are 8 tips on how to create a warm and inviting wetroom of your very own ... more

    Bathrooms With Wet Room Areas for a Tub and a Shower

    Lately many designers have been using a wet room strategy to make the most of bathroom space. This approach combines the bathtub and shower together behind a full or partial enclosure that keeps water out of the rest of the bathroom. With a wet room strategy, there’s no standing in the tub while taking a shower, which is more comfortable and accessible. And when bathing kids in a wet room, they can splish-splash as much as they want and any water that gets outside the tub will simply hit the shower floor and go down the drain. Here’s a look at five different takes on the wet room approach ... more

    Ways Your Bathroom Would Look Great in Gray

    If the previously featured blue bathrooms were a tad too colorful for you, perhaps gray is more your speed. Gray has been a popular neutral for quite a while now, and it doesn’t appear to be falling out of favor anytime soon. One complaint I’ve seen about gray is that it can feel too cold and institutional. Here are some examples of how to use gray in a way that is warm and inviting ... more

    Tips for a Sensational Yellow Bathroom

    Ready to move beyond winter white yet? Perk up your senses with an injection of yellow hues in your home. Bathrooms are excellent spaces for this energetic color, since unlike a bedroom or living room, it’s not a space we tend to spend long periods of time in. Being greeted first thing in the morning by a generous dose of yellow as you step into the bathroom can be just the thing to help jump-start the day ... more

    When to Use Grey in the Bathroom

    Gray is a popular neutral to use with more attention-grabbing hues, but I’ve been seeing gray stand all on its own more and more in residential interiors. The trick to working with gray is to counterbalance its coolness so that it doesn’t end up feeling sterile and institutional. You can do this by adding warm wood tones or by choosing a shade of gray on the warmer end of the spectrum. Of course, if you live in a hot climate, a predominantly cool gray bathroom can feel soothing.

    Here are some gray paint selections that run the gamut from light to dark and cool to warm, along with seven stylish examples of how to use gray in a bath ... more

    Eye-Opening Yellow Bedrooms

    I tend to associate the color yellow with the sweet corn my hometown, just outside the reach of suburban Chicago, is famous for. It's also the color of one of the first flowers of spring in that part of the country, daffodils, which my mother planted in beds around the house to herald the end of our long, cold winters. To me yellow represents the color of sunshine, sustenance and rejuvenation. It reminds me of happy, idyllic days and makes me feel optimistic for the future. If you have similar positive associations with yellow, try using it in your bedroom to help you get revved up each morning for the day ahead.

    Below you'll find several sunny yellow bedrooms as well as tips for working the happy hue into your sleeping space...more

    How to Work With Light Grey

    Light gray is this decade's trendiest neutral. It has replaced beige as the wall color of choice. (I actually don't know if this is true in a statistical sense, but it sure feels like it.)

    A true neutral gray is a mixture of black and white, but we hardly ever see a true neutral gray. What we see are infinite shades of warm and cool grays. Warm grays have yellow or brown undertones. Cool grays have a blue undertone. The ubiquitous "greige" is a very warm gray that can look almost beige.

    Cool or blue grays tend to have a very crisp, almost icy look to them. They are wonderful with bright whites in formal rooms and with blues and beiges. You can treat them almost like a light blue. Warm or yellow grays are complemented by creamy whites and warm colors like yellows, pinks and natural woods.

    But, of course, there are no fast rues. A cool gray can be the perfect way to offset wood, and you are more than welcome to mix a warm gray with blues.

    These examples show a variety of mash-ups that work and illustrate the beauty and versatility of the color ...more

    Gorgeous Grey Bedrooms

    I love gray for its versatility. You can go light or dark, warm or cool, and still pair the neutral with just about any other color. Cool grays look fantastic combined with warm wood tones, or go for a warmer gray and add in some black, white and/or metallic accents for a clean, sophisticated vibe.
