Installing a new walk in shower in your bathroom is a wonderful way to update the space, make the room seem larger, and ensure that the space is accessible to your family and your guests. However, at The Bathroom Workshop, we know that planning a walk in shower on your own can be very difficult and frustrating. When you know what to consider when planning your new shower, as well as how to complete the design process quickly and easily, then you can rest easy knowing that you will have the perfect shower for your bathroom.
Make Sure the Enclosure Fits Your Design
The enclosure of your new walk in shower is one of the most important things that you must consider, as this design will make a huge impact on the appearance and function of your space. No matter the size or shape of the bathrooms that we have worked in, we find that installing the right walk in shower enclosure can greatly improve the way that the bathroom looks and functions. A full glass enclosure is one of the most popular options that you can choose from right now. Not only is this design very easy to install, but it also does a wonderful job containing water and steam from the shower.
Look at the Effect of the Tiling
Tiling has a huge effect on the design of wet rooms. Since there are so many choices to choose from, we see that our clients often get overwhelmed, but we can help guide you through the selection process to make this easier. Larger tiles are easier to clean and will tend to make a bathroom seem bigger and more open than smaller or busier tiles. Additionally, we recommend that you skip any glossy tiles or ones that are glazed, as they tend to be slippery, which can be dangerous on the floor.
Choose the Right Fixture
The perfect fixture for your walk in shower will be a personal preference, but as professional shower-room designers, we can help guide you in making the right decision for your home and shower. We are happy to talk to our clients about what they really want from their shower fixture and then help them find the one that best meets their needs. This means that no matter if you want a shower fixture that offers massage features, is ceiling mounted, or is height adjustable, we can easily help you choose the best one for your new custom walk in shower.
As you can see, a lot of thought and hard work goes into designing a walk in shower and making sure that it will meet your needs. When you understand how the design process works and the benefits that these showers have to offer you, then you are much more likely to update your bathroom. Our team of professionals at The Bathroom Workshop are here for you and are happy to help you design a new shower and space that you love. We’ll make sure that it meets the needs of your family and that it fits with the decor and aesthetics of your current home.
