Bathrooms aren’t just for nature’s business anymore, they are now spaces where you can relax and take the time to care for yourself. This shift in perspective is seen in most elements of new year’s bathroom designs.

As this wellness trend continues to evolve, more and more people are placing natural elements like wood and plants in their bathrooms. Stone bathtubs and tiles also are very popular in new bathroom renovations.

As more time is spent in the bathroom, homeowners are increasingly looking to create larger spaces. This has left many knocking down walls and even exposing their bathrooms right into outdoor space. For those not ready to commit to such a drastic change, adding mirrors, larger windows or large-scale tile can help create the impression of a wider space.

Whereas past years focused on high-tech showers, this year the focal point of the bathroom is a freestanding tub. The trend includes tubs of all shapes and sizes, mainly carved from a natural stone.

For 2018, granite is out, quartz is in. Boring white or black is out, and colorful ceramic tiles are in. If it’s been many years and you are still rocking some outdated styles, maybe it is time to seriously consider a bathroom renovation project.

The Perfect Host and Hostess Gifts to Show Gratitude as a Guest

There are many traditions that died on the internet. Host and hostess gifts are not one of them. Especially during the holidays, if you are invited into someone else’s home, it is polite to come prepared with a gift. If you want to ever be invited back this is guest etiquette 101.

Giving a gift does not excuse you from acting appropriately either. Always pepper your language with lots of “please” and thank you,” and let your host or hostess know that you appreciate all of their efforts. A small amount of gratitude will always go a long way.

Since the holidays are the season when you are spending money like mad, please make sure you set a gift budget and stick to it. For a more personal gift consider something handmade. Photographs of your favorite memories or a mixed playlist are easy to host gifts.

If attending a dinner, consider bringing along a food and drink basket as a host or hostess gift. Just don’t demand that the host open your gift in front of the other guests. Leave that up to them to decide.

Also, don’t fall into the trap of buying them something that you actually want yourself. This is always in poor taste. Please don’t be the guy who gives the vegan a big bag of deli meat sandwiches. Home décor is usually a safe bet when it comes to host and hostess gifts. A luxury throw blanket or cozy bathrobe are other gifts that never go out of style and are the perfect thank you for an overnight stay.
