For homeowners that are remodeling their homes to feel more modern, the bathroom and shower can make a big impact on the overall design. Older bathrooms can feel dark so implementing lighter modern fixtures and modern shower remodel ideas can take the room to a more calming level. Focusing on your shower can help elevate your bathroom to feel like a spa.
Surface Bella has seen many amazing bathroom designs that have come to life because of our work. Below are some shower remodel ideas that can help improve the value and aesthetics of your home.
1- Implement Exposed Brick
Exposed brick or stone makes for a serene bathroom mood. Brick and stone can be installed in your shower for aesthetics but they are also fairly easy to clean or moisture and bathroom products. Tile and brick can make your bathroom look sophisticated and modern. While brick may not seem modern, it is becoming more popular to be partly exposed or installed to look like it was previously there and painted over.
2- Double Shower Heads
Another big one on the list of shower remodel ideas is having wide showers, so if you live with a partner or spouse, double shower heads in a wide-standing shower are a beautiful implementation. Not only are they beautiful, but they can make your shower time more efficient. Both people can enjoy the water at their preferred temperature instead of sharing a stream of water. Many bathrooms are putting in rain shower heads or double showers to make the shower more immersive and feel expensive.
3- Install A Skylight Or More Windows
Natural light in a bathroom will help you feel more refreshed. If you are worried about privacy and implementing more windows, a good option is a skylight. They give you privacy by being hard to see from neighbors or visitors but you still get natural light around the sink, shower, or bathtub. Skylights are also beautiful during rain storms and can be enjoyed during a relaxing bath.
4- Include Built-in Shelving Or Cutout Storage
When you are looking for shower remodel ideas, don’t forget to think about storage during the process. Installing inset shelving or built-in storage helps your shower to look tidy when it is not cluttered with stick-on shelves or plastic hooks. Taking the time to think about how you can improve storage during your remodel will save you money down the road. Make sure to accurately measure the height and width of your shampoo, conditioner, and other products so that they will fit properly inside your shower.
5- Ditch The Combined Tub
Older homes have tubs that are connected to a shower and limit what you can do with the design of the shower. If you are someone who rarely uses your tub, or wants them to be separate experiences, ditch the combined design. Creating a standing shower without a tub and implementing new tiles will make the bathroom look more modern.
If you still want a tub, adding a free-standing tub will help elevate your bathroom even more. Clawfoot tubs or round bowel tubs help your bathroom look sleek. One person can use the bath while the other uses the shower as well.
6- Incorporate Greenery
While this may not have crossed your mind when developing shower remodels ideas, hanging eucalyptus or having plants in your shower can help with the air quality, increase energy, and improve your mental health. Some common plants that can be included in your shower are staghorn fern, English ivy, and the peace lily. Plants are a trend that homeowners can jump on, without the fear of it going out of style. Plants and greenery will always help elevate the look of a home.
