Design Ideas For Your Walk In Shower

If you want to go beyond the typical shower but avoid converting your entire bathroom or en suite into a wet room then a walk in shower is the perfect solution.

Walk in showers are a slick and stylish way to enhance your bathroom interior with contemporary style whilst still having the practical functions of a day to day shower. Walk in showers work fantastically in any sized bathroom and are a great way to utilise the space of a small bathroom.

No matter the project, your home interiors need to combine the perfect blend of your own personal style and functionality. There are many designs that can cater to your needs as well as style choices.

What Designs Are There For A Walk In Shower?

When designing your walk in shower there are many things you need to consider. You need to bear in mind how to optimise your space and if your style is in keeping with the entire design of your bathroom space.

What to consider:

  • A screen. When we think ‘shower’ we often associate a door or a curtain goes along with it, but, if you are looking to make the most of a small space a door may not be necessary. Removing the screen can help blend the room into one making it seem larger than it actually is. If you choose to do this then make sure you waterproof the entire floor to prevent leaks.
  • Choice of tile. Light, neutral colours are a popular choice for tiles in showers due to the fact they offer effortless luxury as well as making the space appear larger. It is also important to consider the size of your tiles; large tiles create a minimalist appearance but smaller designs can give a little quirkiness and fun to your design. Slip-resistant mosaics are recommended for use on the shower floor.
  • Colour. Ensure you get the desired look by choosing a colour scheme that you will enjoy for many years. Darker colours give a decadent, indulgent finish whereas lighter shades give a cleaner, minimalist design.
  • The set up. Consider where your shower head will be (for example, some are positioned centrally in the shower) and how this may affect where your drain needs to be positioned.
