Hot Trends in Bathroom Fixtures

01Robern Bath Cabinet with TV

Here’s one way to make the most of your morning rush. Robern’s two-in-one mirrored cabinet features an 8-inch LCD TV screen tucked into a corner of the door—no need for a freestanding TV or deal with unsightly electrical cords. The screen’s unobtrusive placement allows users to shave or apply makeup with a clear view. When the TV’s off, a translucent silver covering provides a reflective surface. $3,450 and up




02Porcher Floorstanding Vanity

This diminutive vanity from Porcher packs outsize style into its compact frame. Its proportions—16 inches wide, 16 inches deep and just over 30 inches high—make it perfect for a spot that’s short on space. It would be just right for a powder room or a studio apartment. $1,200 and up





03Toto Freestanding Bathtub

Plunge into luxury with this streamlined, sculptural soaker. One of the newest additions to Toto’s Aimes product suite, the tub is nearly two feet deep and features an interior lip that makes a perfect perch for your arms. The crowning touch? Two pillows are included to allow for a leisurely dip in complete comfort. $5,500 and up




04American Standard Studio Dual-Flush Toilet

High-performance dual flush toilets are part of the latest wave of innovations in green plumbing. American Standard’s Studio dual-flush model is equipped with two settings: the standard 1.6 gallons per flush or a reduced 1.1 gallons per flush (which equates to about 20 percent less water, enough to meet EPA WaterSense guidelines). PowerWash scouring technology scrubs the bowl with every use. About $540




05Delta’s Lahara Touch20 Faucet

Delta’s Touch20 faucets allows users to tap anywhere on the spout or handle to start and stop water flow. It was such a big hit when it debuted in the company’s kitchen line, they have now made it available in two bathroom models. For an extra level of function, upgrade to the XT model. It features a four-inch sensing field that turns the faucet on and off as users approach or

exit its range. $318 and up

Its sleek styling blends well with a variety of design approaches, from classic to contemporary. $1,240 as shown




07Moen Twist Handheld Shower

As if handheld showers weren’t flexible enough, Moen’s new Twist model ups the ante. With the flick of a thumb, the showerhead pivots around the handle to switch between four spray modes: Immerse (full and vigorous), Soothe (heavy mist), Drench (gentle rinse) and Shine (strong and targeted). Available through The Home Depot. $65 as shown in Chrome
