If you're in the process of planning your new home, you might want to consider some of the latest trends in bathroom accessories. You don't have to settle for boring cabinets and fixtures in your bathroom anymore. In fact, bathroom accessories are now as much about function as they are flare. Here are just a few of the trends that you might want to add to your new home.

Refrigerated Medicine Cabinets

Do you have medication that needs to be refrigerated, or beauty supplies that do not contain preservatives? If you do, you may appreciate having a refrigerated medicine cabinet. This cabinet comes complete with a refrigerated compartment so you can store your medication or makeup without worrying about it going bad.

Bathtub Sound System

If you enjoy listening to music while you soak in the tub, you may want to add a bathtub with a built-in sound system. The music comes directly through the tub, which means you'll even be able to hear the music while you're underwater.

Metal Floor Tiles

Instead of choosing the standard vinyl, stone or ceramic tile flooring for your bathroom, you can go with a more modern metal tile flooring. This flooring will lend a unique look to your bathroom, while allowing you to remain eco-friendly. Metal floor tiles are available in aluminum and brass. They are manufactured from recycled metals, which means that you'll be doing your part for the environment when you have them installed in your new bathroom.

Hidden Toilets

Have you ever walked into your bathroom and wished that the toilet wasn't the first thing you noticed? With the new compartment toilets, you won't have to see your toilet, unless you're using it. The bench toilet is the perfect to provide the functionality of the toilet while still creating an aesthetically pleasing bathroom. The bench top slides right over the toilet when it is not in use.

Touch-Free Faucets

Tired of constantly wiping down your bathroom faucets? Worried about the spread of germs in the bathroom? The touch-free faucet can prevent the spread of germs because you don't have to touch the faucet to turn the water on. Simply run your hand past the sensor and the faucet will automatically turn on.

Go ahead and get started on your new bathroom. These design ideas will help you get the function that you need with the modern flair that you want. Talk with your home builders about these ideas or other features you may want to include in your bathroom.
