5 Ways to Design a Better Shower

When mounting a bathroom redesign, many homeowners use the opportunity to finally give themselves the shower of their dreams. Whether they’re simply replacing shower fixtures, adding extra ones, or knocking out walls, homeowners have been known to put a lot of time and effort into their showers in order to increase the value of their home.

Coming up with a new look is also undeniably fun. Do you want marble walls for your brand new shower? Would you prefer glass? Do you want it to look ornate? Sleek? Luxurious? Just like with any renovation project, there are hundreds of directions you can take, and many of them depend on your own sense of personal taste.

However, it’s important to know which bathroom shower designs will not work well in practice. The five tips listed below will help homeowners make the right choices when designing their showers, regardless of the décor they’ve chosen.

  • Use natural light when possible. Utilizing frosted or clear glass in the shower is a staple of modern bathroom design, and it’s for a good reason. Glass of any type will naturally allow more natural light into the shower, making the environment seem brighter, cleaner, and more inviting. If you’re doing a full redesign, and your bathroom currently does not have any windows, consider installing a skylight to maximize natural light while protecting your privacy.
  • Give yourself enough space. The most beautiful features in the world won’t matter if you end up with a cramped, uninviting shower space. Expert interior designers recommend a minimum shower size of 60” by 36” to maximize comfort. If you’re upgrading your shower, and it still doesn’t allow you enough room to stretch out your arms, it may behoove you to rearrange the design.
  • Make room for the shampoo. Many modern designs don’t make use of recessed shower walls or indents meant to store shower materials like shampoos, conditioners, and loofahs. However, if you use these items and don’t have a place for them in your shower, you’ll risk ruining your sleek design with random clusters of bottles and other shower tools.
  • Consider using multiple shower heads. Nothing quite announces luxury like a shower space with multiple designer shower heads. Ideal for cohabitating couples and those who want to feel like they’re at a five-star resort every night, having more than one shower head only requires good water pressure and a good supply of hot water. Many have found that including space for a tankless water heater within the bathroom itself also helps ensure that you never run out.
  • Make sure that shower fixtures are easy to reach. If you can’t turn on the shower without being directly underneath the shower head, you may find it impossible to escape that initial blast of cold before the water heater kicks in. This doesn’t mean that the fixtures should be on the opposite side of the shower, but if you’re redoing the plumbing anyway, this is one important factor to keep in mind.

A Bathroom Is Only as Nice as Its Shower Fixtures

No amount of renovation can make old shower fixtures look good. In fact, many homeowners who simply replace their shower faucets have found it to be an inexpensive way to give their bathroom a whole new look. Ultimately, the extent of your renovation project will depend on your budget, but starting from the shower fixtures, and then working forward from there may prove be a great money-saving strategy.
