Whether your bathroom needs updates or complete renovation, keeping the space up to a quality standard is one of the best investments you can make in your home, and 2014 is all about seamlessness, functionality and bold accessories.

The right lighting controls can create a wide spectrum of atmospheres. Dimmers are a must as they allow you to change the mood of the room for different occasions. The latest trends in bathroom lighting combine an element of halogen light with new technology like energy-saving LED bulbs. Lighting is essential to the mood of your room. Bathroom accessories combine great design and clever functionality that match flawlessly with other items within the bathroom.
