5 Ways To Make Your Shower Room Look Great
Updated: Aug 23
Your shower room is one of the most important rooms in your house. Not only is it where you start and end your day, but it's also where you prepare for guests and entertain friends. Often, bathrooms are one of the most neglected spaces in terms of design. It's important to make sure that your shower room is not only highly efficient but also looks its best!
Your shower room needs high-quality shower fixtures — from shower heads to water valves — as well as some aesthetic but practical design elements. A well-designed shower room can improve your mood, make you feel more relaxed, and even help you stay organized. In addition, a beautiful shower room can add value to your home (and increase its resale value!) and make it more enjoyable to live in.
Whether you're looking to update your existing shower room or build a new one from scratch, there are endless possibilities for making it into a space that you'll love spending time in.
With a little planning and some creative thinking, you can create a shower room that is both functional and stylish. Don’t worry, bathroom decor is fun!
Here are five shower room ideas that will make your shower enclosure, cubicle, or stall look fantastic:
1. Consider Having A Walk-In Shower or Wet Room
A walk-in shower can add a touch of luxury to any bathroom and is a great way to make small spaces feel bigger. When combined with glass doors or screens, a walk-in shower can help to create the illusion of more space.
In addition, a walk-in shower is incredibly practical and easy to keep clean. Because there are no ledges or barriers, you can simply walk into the shower. And if you choose a waterproof flooring material, such as tile or stone, you won’t have to worry about any water damage either. Plus, because there are fewer nooks and crannies, a walk-in shower is easier to clean.
A wet room is another great option for small bathrooms or bathrooms with awkward or slanted ceilings. Wet rooms are sleek, modern, and completely waterproof. There are no shower screens, doors, curtains, or shower trays in a wet room — it's a completely open space and everything is on the same level.
Wet rooms, when done right, are also very easy to clean since there are no spaces for dirt and grime to build up in. Plus, wet rooms can make small spaces feel much bigger than they actually are.
If you’re considering a new bathroom design, consider a walk-in shower or wet room. You’ll love the look and the practicality.
2. Use Matching Tiles on the Floor and the Wall
When considering shower room ideas, tiles are very, very important! A matching tile scheme can help to make your shower room look good and feel coordinated. Using the same tiles on the floor and walls will create a cohesive look and make your bathroom seem seamless. On the other hand, using different tiles can add interest and visual texture.
If you're working with a small space, stick to a light-coloured tile as this will help to make the room feel larger and airier. For a more dramatic look, choose a dark-coloured tile or go with a patterned tile.
Either way, take care to ensure that the grout lines are clean and straight for a professional finish. With a little effort, you can create a shower room that looks good and feels stylish!
3. Get Elegant Shower Fixtures and Accessories
Your shower should be your sanctuary, a place where you can relax and unwind after a long day. But if your shower fixtures are outdated or dingy, it can be hard to feel at ease. Fortunately, it's easy to give your shower a facelift with elegant fixtures and accessories.
Start by replacing your shower head with a sleeker model in a finish that coordinates with the rest of your bathroom. For example, the StoneStream EcoPower Chrome-Clear will look good in a modern shower room that uses light colours while the Matte Black EcoPower will look good in a rustic shower space with earthy colours. Make sure your shower hoses match your shower heads.
Of course, you don't have to follow these rules strictly — design is all about play, so don't hesitate to mix and match! Even a few luxury bathroom accessories or fixtures can brighten up the entire shower room.
Afterwards, update your faucets and towel hooks for a coordinated look. Finally, add some finishing touches like a soap dispenser or decorative mirror. With just a few simple changes, you can turn your shower into a stylish retreat. You can search Pinterest for bathroom decor and shower room ideas — and you’ll notice that shower fixtures and accessories are always an integral part of them!
4. Go For A Shower Bench
Most people don't think about the benches in their shower room. But if you're looking for a way to add a touch of luxury to your space and want to level up your bathroom decor game, a shower bench can be the perfect addition.
A well-designed shower bench can provide a place to rest while you're showering, or it can simply be a place to store toiletries and other items. Either way, benches are a great way to add both function and style to your shower room. If you're not sure where to start, check out some of the different options below. You're sure to find the perfect bench for your space!
Shower benches come in a variety of materials, including stone, tile, marble, and even wood. If you're looking for a more traditional look, stone or tile may be the way to go. For something more modern, marble or wood may be the better option.
There are also a variety of colours and styles available, so you're sure to find something that fits your taste. No matter what material or style you choose, a bench is an easy way to add both function and beauty to your shower room.
5. Choose Beautiful Shower Storage
From contemporary Euro-style shelves and corner caddies to more rustic wire baskets, there are many options available to help you organize your shower space.
If your shower is on the smaller side, look for narrow shelves or wall-mounted storage units that can hold all of your essentials without taking up too much space.
Larger showers may have room for a freestanding shower caddy or shelf unit. Whichever style you choose, be sure to look for shower storage that is durable and easy to clean.
Avoid units with lots of nooks and crannies where dirt and grime can build up, and opt for smooth, waterproof surfaces that can be quickly wiped down. With a little bit of planning, you can find shower storage that looks great and helps keep your bathroom tidy.
