It’s easy to update a bath or powder room in minutes – with so many modern bath accessory sets and bath ensembles available, your most difficult decision may be choosing what print, pattern or color you like best. Even something as seemingly simple as shower curtain ties and hooks poses a host of choices, including the option to skip it entirely and go with a hookless shower curtain. Bathroom décor has changed a lot in the last few years and if you have not shopped lately it’s time to take another look.
One easy way to see what’s happening in bathroom décor trends is to look online at the websites of the major bed and bath stores. Most feature lots of images of bath and powder rooms along with ideas on easy ways to update a room in an hour or an afternoon. Even better, when you shop online it’s easy to look at hundreds if not thousands of décor options from the comfort of home. Why brave traffic and burn gas when you can save money and shop online instead.

Modern bath textiles
Most modern bath textiles feature anti-mildew and anti-mold properties and many are designed to perform best in the moist and humid environment most bathrooms present. Look for features like anti-skid backing on many bath mats and bath rugs and quick-dry functionality on shower curtains and window treatments – these are the sorts of modern innovations that have made their way into bath and powder room textiles. Natural materials like teak and bamboo have become very popular and add a spa-like element to a bathroom; teak is naturally water resistant too.
