It’s finally time to update your tired old tub/shower combo and end the moldy shower curtain liner battle once and for all. Whether you’ve already got an idea of what you want or you haven’t a clue what you want in terms of a new shower, we strongly recommend that you read this before deciding to avoid coulda, woulda, shoulda syndrome, aka “remodeler’s remorse”!
Know Your Bathroom Remodeling Options
With any remodeling project, it’s always best to know what’s out there so you don’t find something you’re absolutely in love with — after you’ve already completed your renovation! And when it comes to shower options, there are plenty that are new, pamper-friendly, and downright gorgeous to consider…
Multiple Shower Heads
Consider the idea of an upgraded shower head or even multiple shower heads for a spa-like experience. These can be any combination of the following:
- overhead shower head plus personal shower head
- double shower heads for showering à deux
- Overhead shower head and massaging shower jets
- all of the above!
Don’t underestimate the value of a place to sit down while you shower. Whether you just want to sit for a few moments and let the warm water wash relax you completely, or you use it for a more practical purpose like washing your feet or shaving your legs, you can’t beat the luxury of a built-in shower bench!
A Fully Enclosed Steam Shower
While you might not have the space — or the funds — for a luxurious enclosed steam shower like this one, it’s definitely possible to upgrade your existing space by adding a steam generator and enjoying the health and stress-relieving benefits of a steam shower.
Combine the newest bathroom darling — a freestanding fiberglass tub — with a shower enclosed together in their own room. Make it a curbless renovation and you’ll make it an “aging-in-place” bathroom that adds both style and value to your home!
If you’ve ever had the pleasure of spending an afternoon at a spa or luxury hotel, then you know how wonderful a heated towel feels after a shower. Adding a towel warmer is a simple upgrade that pays big dividends in your own bathroom.
If your bathroom remodel includes a floor update, consider adding in-floor heating with a programmable thermostat for another luxurious spa-like touch. (You deserve it!)
