The bathroom entry now has maple his/her storage with the new large vanity and its custom cabinetry. The new bathing room has a walk-in shower with a bench which is adjacent to the large soaking tub.

Reading about the worst decorating trends made me think about remodeling patterns as well. There's no question that certain materials and fixtures crop up again and again. They often become popular for valid reason; either they are practical, beautiful, inexpensive, or all of the above. Others however--like granite countertops--take hold of the market and just don't let go. Chances are good it's these finishes that will scream 2012 to our contemporaries.
