Happy New Year everyone. We hope you all had a wonderful holiday. We’re kicking off this year with a post about what we think are going to be the biggest trends this year. Bathrooms got a lot more attention last year and property owners are allotting more budget for them in their renos. It’s a great investment as a well designed bathroom can help increase the value of your property. Whether you’re overhauling your entire bathroom or doing a few quick updates, this is what the year’s hottest bathrooms are going to look like.

One piece toilets
Not only can they be space saving, they’re easier to clean! Check out these two great one-
piece toilets from American Standard.

This is the American Standard Champion 4 6 litre 1-Piece Right Height Elongated Toilet. Not only is it a versatile and modern design,  it has an Everclean surface. To top it all off: No plunge technology. Say goodbye to your plunger forever!

The American Standard Compact Cadet 3 1-Piece Toilet is a high-efficiency and space saving compact toilet that has ultra low consumption. (20% less water!) Who doesn’t like saving money on their water bill?

WaterSense Certified

Over the course of your lifetime, you will flush your toilet approximately 140,000 times and that toilet will account for 30% of your total indoor water use. Want to know how to save some water and a few dollars? WaterSense certified toilets are low consumption toilets that are a simple and greener choice. Check out these two models.

The American Standard Cadet 3 FloWise pictured above features a round front and lined tank. This high-efficiency and ultra-low consumption toilet only uses 4.8 litres per flush!

The American Standard H2Option has a siphonic action bowl with direct fed jet. This toilet is a dual flush, meaning the full flush only uses High efficiency, low consumption 6 litres per flush and the partial flush only uses 3.8 litres per flush!

There’s nothing like waking up early in the morning and taking a hot shower. Let us show you how to take that shower to the next level.

Large showers

Long gone are the days of cramped stand-up showers or using your tub as a shower. The Maax Urban 7242 is the ultimate in urban minimalist with lots of room. It is made with modern lines and an innovative design. Additional options include the Maax IESR and Rainmax for the best shower experience.

Shower Systems

The Riobel Zendo offers not one,  not two, but four body jets. The shower hand rail makes it easy to adjust the showerhead to the perfect height and the rainfall showerhead is perfect for relaxing after a long day.

The Thermostatic shower system with hand shower rail and four body jets offers an exceptional shower experience. With four body jets, you have hot water relieve all your tense muscles without bending and twisting with a conventional hand shower.



The Maax Optix F has a simple design that would match a modern bathroom perfectly. If offers a deep bathing well with all the right curves on the inside for total comfort – including a rolled headrest, sloped back rest and arched armrests. To top it off, it comes in five stunning colours, Pink Martini (shown in the photo), Glacier blue, Thunder Gray, Sterling Silver or Traditional White.


The Miles by Maax is your classic traditional freestanding tub. Its beautiful curved lines make it stand out while still fitting in.



The Maax Roman 6842 is classic elegance in a drop-in bathtub. It will be a timeless piece in your bathroom that features traditional lines with the latest massage technology.

About Bathworks Style

Welcome to Bathworks Style!

There so many bathroom and kitchen renovation communities on the internet that sometimes it’s hard to keep up. They range from: the inspirational photo blogs, where you can find ideas to help you create your own bathroom oasis, the informational articles, where you can find useful tips which products to choose and how they will work for you in your home and the product review community, which is pretty self explanatory.

We’re passionate about what we do, that’s why we want to give you the most up to date information about bathroom and kitchen design trends, informational product reviews and helpful educational articles.
