When it comes to the most popular bathrooms of 2016, there are plenty of trends to talk about. Ideas such as tankless toilets, LED shower heads and faux wood-tiled floors abound for everything from a small bathroom refresh to a total renovation. Here, in reverse order, are a few of the most popular bathrooms, as measured by the number of people who have saved photos of them to their Houzz ideabooks in 2016.

5. Pedant power. Designer pendant lights have been showing up over kitchen islands and dining tables for some time now, therefore, adding them to a bathroom seems like a logical extension of the look. This Los Angeles bathroom designed by Jamie Bush & Co features a custom pendant dripping with seven oversized exposed lightbulbs.

4. Integrated lighting. The designer of this modern home in Germany integrated lights into the vanity mirror. The streamlined look forgoes pendant lights from above or sconces to the side of the mirror. It also provides effective lighting at face level, which is ideal for plucking eyebrows, shaving and other grooming routines that benefit from good lighting.

3. Oversize sink. If you’re not a fan of water splashing from the sink onto the countertop or floor, you may want to consider a larger basin. In this stylish Boston bathroom, designer Kristina Crestin selected a 4-foot-wide Brockway sink from Kohler.

2. Streamlined storage. A floating double vanity and a pair of frameless mirrors keep this bathroom in Grand Rapids, Michigan, sleek and streamlined. A floor-to-ceiling cabinet in the corner provides ample storage without taking away from the clean aesthetic.

1. Fireplace wall. The team at Allard & Roberts Interior Design selected an undulating 1-by-1-foot wall tile called Ambra from Artistic Tile to create a feature fireplace wall. A gas-insert fireplace and a custom ledge are perfect for holding wine glasses, making this tub an ideal place to unwind after a long day.
