Q: Do you have any color suggestions that are now hip for my new bathroom?


A: This question has me drawing a blank.

The reason I’m blanking out is because, from what I’ve recently seen, a new bathroom color trend is going with a white-on-white palette.

I mean a lot of white stuff. White plumbing fixtures, cabinets, floor tiles and walls.

The fixture trim, accessories and faucet finish for this trend is brushed nickel, and the white reflections really bring out the matte nickel finish. White also gives the impression of a very clean and open space, perfect for a modern-looking bathroom.

Bottom line: The future for new and remodeled bathrooms going with a pure white theme is looking very bright.
