Tie everything together. "We wanted to revamp this bathroom without doing a costly remodel," says Beth Dotolo of Pulp Design Studios. "By using this European trellis wall covering we were able to give the space a completely new look and tie together the existing finishes".
Composting toilets. Composting toilets, which use little or no water, are ready for the mainstream with smart systems that can look like conventional toilets (save for missing the water tank). Manufacturers like Clivus Multrum and Sun‐Mar offer centralized systems that have remote tanks for the waste. The tanks can be sized so that minimal attention is required.
Go for an elegant look. "The inspiration for this bathroom was elegant glamour", says Jamie Herzlinger of Jamie Herzlinger Design. "The easiest way to get elegance into your bathroom is by using a frameless shower, because it keeps the look clean and sleek". Embrace minimalism. "We were looking to have the colors of the limestone tile bounce light around the room and to use few if any noticeable details, in keeping with our firm's philosophy of embracing minimalism", says David Webber of Webber + Studio Architects. Infuse a sense of calm. "I was inspired by the tranquil river and landscape surrounding this home to create a peaceful sanctuary that brought the outdoors in", says Justine Sterling of Justine Sterling Design. "The frameless shower design was key in creating transparency, openness and a sense of calm". Invite nature to be your guest. "This master bath is in a summer home on a lake, and the back of the house faces the woods", says Nora Schneider of Nora Schneider Interior Design. "The shower faces an entire wall of windows overlooking the woods, and I wanted to invite nature in as an evergreen guest".
