It’s easy to overlook just how important a shower is to a bathroom’s design. The shower/tub combo with a curtain is no longer trendy. That look might for a guest bathroom, but not for a luxurious master bathroom. These days, it’s all about walk-in showers! If you’re not happy with your current shower or think it needs an upgrade, consider a shower remodel Dallas.
Here are some of the most popular shower options:
Frameless glass shower doors
Give your bathroom a modern look by installing the highest quality frameless glass shower doors. Not only do they have an elegant look, but they’ll make the space seem bigger because no barriers (like a curtain or frames) will get in the way. Additionally, you won’t have to worry about any frames growing mold on them.
You can’t go wrong with frameless glass doors. They’re extremely popular these days, and they don’t seem to be going away anytime soon.
Unique back wall as the focal point
If you really want to grab someone’s attention the moment he/she walks into your bathroom, have a unique design installed on the back wall of your shower area. Nothing is more attention-grabbing than mosaic patterns.
There are many mesmerizing stone and porcelain mosaics to choose from sold by tile manufacturers — with different tile shapes, sizes, and colors. A back wall as a focal point is perfect for bathrooms where the entrance faces the back wall.
Making the most of natural light
Natural light can work wonders for a bathroom. Similar to frameless glass shower doors, it makes the area seem larger, more welcoming, and less confined. If your bathroom layout allows for it, a corner shower in areas that natural light is flowing through might benefit your bathroom design.
This strategic layout gives a bathroom another opportunity to seem larger. A window on a shower wall, or a skylight in the ceiling, will brighten a small space.
Open shower – NO doors
For large master bathrooms, the “no shower door” concept can give them an elegant look. There’s no door to open, you can just walk right in. The shower bay will have to be very spacious, though, since you don’t any water to spill onto the bathroom floor.
Floor-to-ceiling glass panels
Another way to give your bathroom a more spacious look is by installing floor-to-ceiling glass panels to enclose your shower. This bathroom renovation will enhance the beauty of it. The look is best if your bathroom ceiling is higher than a normal one. Having such a shower in a bathroom with a normal ceiling space can make it feel crammed.
If you budgets allows for it, treat yourself to a spa in your own home. Have a floating tub installed in the middle of a spacious bathroom. Install a large walk-in shower loaded with all the latest tech— rain showers heads, handheld shower heads with water pressure control, shower bench, etc.
If you are someone who tends to take long showers, you might as well maximize the sense of comfort and relaxation.
Half shower wall
Some homeowners decide to go for a half shower wall. Essentially, instead of having surrounding shower walls or a floor-to-ceiling glass pane, a half wall is placed in front of the shower. No door, and often the half wall is the only wall if the shower is installed in the corner of the bathroom.
This is another design idea that makes a small space seem larger.
The colors used for a bathroom design can have an influence on it as well. A contrasting color scheme is an appealing one. For instance, having black cabinetry, white countertops and white walls in a bathroom. For the shower, you can offset the white/black perhaps with dark gray natural stone walling.
If you want a bolder look, consider matching colors such as dark blue or burgundy red with white. Nearly everything goes well with white, it’s just a matter of properly balancing the colors. Switching out white with a light gray can also be an enticing look.
What about a white/light gray bathroom? Like we said earlier, lighter colors make a space look larger. These two colors combine to make an absolutely luxurious look.
Imagine light gray porcelain tile, white cabinets, a white marble or granite countertop with gray grain or streak. Then, line the shower with light gray porcelain tile or natural stone. These “basic” color schemes will create a very calming atmosphere.
Freedom of choice is the best part of bathroom remodeling. You have an endless selection of colors, materials, layout, etc. So many ways that you might end up getting overwhelmed.
That’s why we suggest getting in touch with a remodeling contractor. A contractor has access to all the best materials and supplies. He/she will be aware of the latest design trends and will help you through the decision-making process.
