At this year’s Utah Valley Parade of Homes, builders and designers brought fresh ideas and elegant style to every part of the home, and the bathrooms are no exception. Bathrooms continue to deliver dramatic design with shapely tubs, spacious showers and decorative details as striking as those featured elsewhere in the home. With spaces this relaxing and beautiful, every night feels like a trip to the spa.

Many of us default to boring bins underneath the sink, but thinking outside the plastic box can add the perfect finishing touch to a bathroom design. A wood stool and wicker basket are both practical storage containers and eye-catching decorative elements.
