Designing a Luxurious Walk-In Shower

Do you need a relaxing place to unwind after a long day of work? Or maybe you prefer a more invigorating start to your day? A well appointed walk-in shower is the perfect way to take a few moments to escape from the stress of your day.

Gone are the days of basic shower surrounds. These days homeowners are discovering the joys of designing a shower that suits their needs and design sensibilities perfectly.

Great Features for Your Dream Shower

One of the most exciting possibilities of designing a walk-in shower is the almost endless tile options. Ditching the boring white or beige shower surround gives you the opportunity to mix and match tile to create a style that is uniquely your own. You can get as simple or elaborate with the details as you wish. Recessed nooks for storing shampoo and conditioner are great places to add a special decorative tile.

Other special features you should consider are:

  • A luxurious shower head. Overhead rainfall shower heads, programmable steam showers, or dual shower heads are all great possibilities.
  • A zero-threshold shower. No stubbed toes, easier cleaning, and more accessible for people with mobility issues.
  • A built-in bench.
  • Natural light from an in-shower window or skylight.
