When remodeling your bathroom, the shower is often the focal point of the room. Bathroom shower remodeling ideas, therefore, are your opportunity to create a masterpiece. No matter what design elements you choose, it’s sure to become your stunning retreat that lets you relax and get away from the busyness of the world.
If you’re gathering ideas for your upcoming bathroom shower remodel, consider some of these popular trends we’ve seen from our previous clients.
Stand Alone Showers
More often than not when we remodel a bathroom, clients are opting to separate their showers and bathtubs. This allows them to create two focal points — one being a stand alone tub (like a soaking, clawfoot or whirlpool tub), the other being a floor-to-ceiling, walk-in shower. Separating the two allows you to make each one dynamic and functional in it’s own way.
You can’t go wrong with the classic look of subway tile. White is especially popular and will likely never go out of style. Whether you choose a traditional size and pattern, or try something different like a herringbone layout, this design choice is timeless, clean, and elegant. Love color? You can always add some flair with a busier, patterned tile that stretches horizontally across the middle of the shower.
It’s time to ditch the shower curtain and put in a beautiful glass door. If your renovated shower truly is the focal point of your bathroom, why hide it behind a piece of fabric? Let it shine through. Some people choose full glass doors, while others go with half walls that feature glass on the top half. Both options are crisp, sleek ways to show off the inside of your new shower.
If you choose a neutral, simple tile for the majority of your floor to ceiling shower, an insert accented with complementary mosaic tiles can add some flair. It also adds additional storage space for hygiene products (and who doesn’t need extra storage?) This is a great option if you can’t decide between two different tile options — it allows you to use them both.
A unique way to draw attention to your tiled shower is with darker grout — like different shades of gray, tan, or black. This looks sharp against white subway tile and gives the shower a vintage vibe. If you want to make your subway tile stand out, using colored grout is one way to do it.
