Thinking about remodeling your bathroom? As you consider what style of shower you want to include in your new bathroom we want to both inspire you and help you along in the design process.As you contemplate the design of your new shower or bathroom remodel, here are some questions to ask yourself:
- Do you want the new shower to match the style of your home?
- Are you looking for a tub-shower combo, or a separate shower?
- Do you want to include universal design features that will make the shower more user-friendly long-term or for potential new homeowners?
- Would you like to include a hand shower nozzle as well as a fixed showerhead? Do you want to consider multiple shower heads?
- Do you want built-in storage in the shower?
- Do you want to create a spa-like experience with your new shower?
- Do you want your shower to improve your home’s resale value?
- What about a built-in or wall-mounted seat?
- What is your budget for the project and which high-impact features are worth splurging on?
Once you’ve begun to identify what is most important to your new shower, create a collection of notes and photos (try a site like houzz.com to store your ideas!). Here are some enticing shower features worth considering:
- Steam Showers — A steam shower can turn your shower into a relaxing spa experience, and the steam is good for your health too.
- Built-in Storage — Homeowners are getting more storage-savvy than ever, and insets within the shower tile can be a valuable addition.
- His & Hers — Within a larger space, consider a reflective design with a shower-head on both sides.
- Walk-In — A custom built shower of stone or tile with no door is both luxurious and easy-going. A good rule of thumb is to have at least 3 feet of wall before the opening to keep splashes away.
- Glass Doors – A glass enclosure creates a bright and cheery showering experience, letting in lots of light.
