Bathroom Shower Design Ideas
Modern day bathroom showers are a great place to unwind, relax, and remove all the dirt and grime of the day. At its most basic, a shower serves the function of getting clean and nothing more (think freshmen dorm showers!). However, at its most lavish, it can be a luxurious place with state of the art science to get every part of your body clean. Of course, there are a multitude of bathroom showers that fall somewhere in the middle on this spectrum that do the job nicely, too. Designing your bathroom shower dictates the mood and energy of your bathroom, and can be anywhere from modern to Victorian in its overall style. It does take some thinking and planning, but when it is complete you will reap the fruits of your labor with a relaxing sanctuary to welcome you at the end of a long day.
There are many things to consider when choosing to have a shower, tub or both. Having a shower and bathtub combination is having the best of both worlds that many families enjoy. It's like having your ice cream in a cone and in a cup, and making everyone happy. Want to take a long soak at night? Sure, come on in. Want to jump in the shower quickly after the big game? You can do that here too! It is a practical and efficient use of space in a busy bathroom.
Snazzy Shower Heads
When you are designing your shower, don't forget about shower heads and fixtures, as they can make your space go from so-so, to a place that creates a rejuvenating experience every time you get in. There are the usual wall mount shower heads that can fit into any one's budget. But, if you feel like branching out, you could try body sprays which are mounted on the side wall of your shower to crisscross the water, multiplying that soothing feeling with water hitting you from several directions aiming for that one spot behind your knee, that never manages to get clean! Or what about a ceiling mounted shower head, that rains down on you like you are standing under a waterfall instead of just washing your greasy hair? Yes, please!
Everyone needs more storage right? And nobody likes to look at all those shampoo, conditioner, body wash, shaving gel, and face cleansers shoved precariously in the corners of your shower, so think about including storage inside your shower to combat the clutter. These are not the clunky hang-around-the-shower-head storage units, but beautiful built-ins for soap and towels now designed to fit in seamlessly with your tile or natural stone walls.
