Bathroom Design Trends 2011

       I found this amazing article on bathroom design trends for 2011 and I think all of you should read this. I remember when the more items you had the better it was. Well the more items you stuffed in your over sized closet we called a bathroom. Well thats all changed and now we see minimal designs with barely a tub sink and toilet and very little else in terms of accents.. Most items are now in the closet and only used when we are actually using the facilities and the rest of the time our modern bathrooms have become a show place of designers and novice designers t show them selves off and the work they do.. They have become another room in the house to leave open and display unlike the closed off sections we had when I was a kid when visit came a place we stuffed everything into to show the rest of the house. They have gone from uncomfortable closet like impractical stuffed rooms to bigger then room open spaces more times then not with two and even three sinks, two toilets, and round large jacuzzi style tubs.. The bathroom has become transformed into a luxurious room for us to have complete experiences of cosmic relaxation after our everyday complicated lives a room to share with friends and family and another room for to showcase our modern homes..
