As the place to enjoy some quiet time getting ready in the morning and the space we retreat to at the end of the day for a soak in the tub, the bathroom is a hub of activity in any home. Whether your bathroom needs a few updates or a complete overhaul, keeping the space up to snuff is one of the best investments you can make in your home, and 2014 is all about seamlessness, functionality and bold accents. Erin Feasby of Toronto design firm Feasby & Bleeks shares the hottest trends in bathroom design for 2014, from flooring to showers to lighting, with tips on how to integrate each into your own space.
1 Black in bathrooms in faucets, tubs, lighting and tile

The addition of this deep, dramatic hue keeps white bathrooms from looking too sterile and common. “There is a bit of modern industrial style at play here in combination with highlighting and showcasing beautiful shapes,” says Erin. “The curves of the faucets, tubs and lights become much more of a focal point when set against these white backdrops.”
