Pictures and Ideas to Help You Transform Your Bathroom into a Relaxing Retreat
A shower should be a place where you can escape everyday stressors or start your day drenched in tranquility. We design and remodel bathrooms of every size. Over the years, we have helped our clients enhance their shower experience by incorporating an array of innovations. Here are some great ideas and tips to help you transform your shower into a spa retreat.
Spend Time Selecting Your Showerhead
The showerhead is the heart of the shower. And there are enough showerhead options to make your head spin! You can choose from a single showerhead with a variety of spray options to multiple shower heads to complete shower systems. Several manufacturers allow you to design the shower system of your dreams by being able to choose the number of showerheads, whether you want wall mounted body sprayers, round or square shower heads, even hand-held sprayers. The showerheads can be installed directly on the tile or on a metal tower, on the wall or on the ceiling like a waterfall. Think of what type of water stream you prefer, then design your shower around it!
Go for Open and Airy
Give an open and airy feeling to your shower with glass enclosures. Just like with the showerhead, there are door options from which to choose. A frameless glass door looks like it floats without support and creates a seamless look. Framed options, however, can add character to a space. Do you prefer a door that slides or pivots? An experienced contractor can help you determine the best type of door for your space.
Let the Light Shine
Love the feeling of natural light pouring in? Consider incorporating a skylight or window in your shower to let the outside in. Depending upon placement, choose from transom or a full window with privacy glass. Then be sure to add recessed lighting to illuminate the area for better function.
Don’t Skimp on Seating
Seating is a luxury addition to any shower. It allows you to relax as the water pours over you, shave your legs, or wash your feet. You can opt for a built-in shower seat or a beautiful fold-up teak wood bench that is attached to the wall.
Create a Niche or Two
Install a niche – or two or three – for shampoos and soaps. This will allow you to keep neatly tucked away. Clutter free helps create a stress-free shower!
Savor Some Steam
Truly create your own spa retreat with a steam shower. You can enjoy the health and wellness benefits of steam without ever leaving your home.
