Bathroom Showers, From Utilitarian to Luxurious

Bathroom showers are no longer small, dark, and only utilitarian. In fact, with multiple jets, adjustable showerheads, fold-down or built in seating, and accessories to hold toiletries available, bathroom showers are often preferred over tubs.

The Necessities for Bathroom Showers

Bathroom showers need to be at least three square feet for easy entry and mobility, but for handicapped accessibility, forty-two inches by sixty inches is needed.

Many bathroom showers today are designed as walk-ins with no doors simply by using a curved or an L-shaped wall. This feature not only allows for privacy, it allows anyone, regardless of age, size, ability, or height easy access. For smaller bathrooms, frameless, tempered safety glass doors make the space appear larger and let in more light.

Bathroom showers can be decorated with tile, marble, or stone to name a few of the options. The flooring needs to be tumbled stone or non-glossy ceramic tile to prevent slipping. Grout lines add texture but they need to be kept thin for smoothness. For a cheaper alternative, consider pre-formed fiberglass or pre-formed acrylic showers. These come in sections for easier installation in bathroom remodeling or they are available in one piece as well. Most pre-formed bathroom showers have built-in niches to store everything from soap to personal toiletries.

There are many bathroom showerheads on the market. Some simulate a soft rain shower while others provide a stimulating massage. The controls for the bathroom showerheads should be located where they are accessible from outside the shower but high enough to be out of the reach of young children. Bathroom showers today may be designed to be comfortable, enjoyable, and luxurious additions to a home.
