Freedom lies in being bold. It’s time to make a statement with your bathroom design. If you’re new to this trend and don’t know where to start, get inspired to step outside of your comfort zone with these 5 eye-catching ideas you can use inside and outside the shower space.


Textured Shower Walls

Conveying the illusion of movement, textured shower walls add depth and help create striking accent walls. With LuxStone® shower walls, you can choose from nature-inspired textures like VeinCut Dune for an organic feel or tactile-inspired patterns like White Brick for an Urban Organic look.


Mixed Metals

Matching hardware finishes is safe and predictable. Bucking this design expectation empowers you to get creative with the combinations so the fixtures really pop. Mixing metals in your bathroom introduces subtle tension that adds drama to the space.

Finding the right combination comes down to choosing complementary undertones so the metals don’t clash. As a general rule, Matte Black’s neutral undertone works universally with both the cool undertones of Polished Chrome and the warm hues of Vibrant® Brushed Nickel and Oil-Rubbed Bronze. Bathroom sink faucets, drawer pulls and showerheads are all fair game to mix.

Matte Black Fixtures

Ever-sophisticated, enduringly chic and forever versatile, black is and will always be a home design favorite. You can experiment with Matte Black shower fixtures for a dramatic and daring twist, whether your bathroom style runs toward classic elegance, sleekly contemporary, or somewhere in between.

To create a bold contemporary look, pair the Matte Black Contemporary showerhead with ultra-modern Ice Grey shower walls for high contrast.

Framed Art

Choose a bold piece of art to create a focal point in your bathroom. An eye-catching gallery wall of framed photos draws your attention immediately and puts your personality on display. Go all-out bold with your bathroom art choices and play around with size, composition and styles to add surprising visual interest.


Colorful Bathroom Décor

The bathroom is a great place to take a chance with color and add artful touches. Bold, eye-popping hues instantly brighten up your space and enhance your mood. You can go all out with color wall-to-wall, or strategically pop intense shades throughout as accents.

To ease into the bold look, add a few vividly colored decorations such as a bath mat, bathroom sink or a soap dispenser. Starting with small items makes it easy to experiment with color and update the look over time.
