One of the best ways to unwind at the end of a long day is by taking a nice shower. But a poorly designed shower can turn your relaxing rinse into a stressful experience. When remodeling your bathroom, it’s important that you choose a fashionable yet functional shower design. To get the showering oasis of your dreams, make sure to plan ahead and ask yourself these questions.
What Type of Shower Head Do I Want?
In addition to the type of design and finish you’re looking for, the desired intensity of the water is also a question to ask yourself here. Decide if an adjustable shower head or even a crisscrossing water jet is ideal for the needs and wants of your family.
Do I Want a Shower Door or Curtain?
There are pluses and minuses to both options. Shower doors require routine maintenance, while shower curtains need to be replaced periodically. Glass shower doors are known for their ability to brighten up a room, while shower curtains can add personality and a pop of color to your space. To help you narrow down your choice between the two, check this out.
Do I Need Lighting in My Shower?
If your bathroom is large, it’s more likely than not that you’ll need in-shower lighting, and there are many different options to choose from. An in-shower privacy window will provide natural light in your space. If you prefer the consistency and control of artificial light, always be sure to invest in water-safe lighting. If your shower is smaller, opting for a glass shower door is a great way to let light in without the electrical hassle.
How Much Space Do I Need in My Shower?
This depends on a variety of factors. Do you want a bathtub combination in your shower? If so, you will be restricted to the measurements of the tub. If a free-standing shower is your ideal design, then you have more flexibility with space. Make sure when designing your shower that your growing family has enough space both vertically and horizontally to stand up straight and stretch out. If you have all sorts of shampoos and bath toys, you may want to also include built in shelving to keep things organized.
