A bathroom makeover gives you the chance to transform a generic shower into a luxury amenity, one that offers an invigorating bathing experience in the morning and precious moments of rest and relaxation at the end of a busy day. Whether you want an expansive shower equipped with body sprays, rain showerheads and built-in seating or a simple replacement for an outdated stall, you don’t have to drain your bank account to enjoy the benefits of a new installation. The professionals at Handyman Connection of Ann Arbor are happy to help you install a design that fits your budget as well as your lifestyle. The following shower remodel ideas may inspire you to take the plunge.
Stand-alone showers are available in an ever-increasing variety of door styles, frame finishes and clear, textured or tinted glass. The style best for you not only depends on your personal taste but on the functional demands of your bathroom as well. A frameless clear-glass design, for example, can make a small bathroom feel bigger while adding a note of sophistication to the space. A shower that’s enclosed with textured glass lends some privacy in a busy bathroom and can make a striking style statement too.
According to the latest study released by the National Kitchen and Bath Association, more and more homeowners are requesting walk-in shower designs, and for good reason. With no curb or frame to step over, they’re a safe option that helps prevent slips and mishaps, but it’s their seamless style that most attracts consumers. A walk-in shower instantly makes the room look more serene and spacious. In some large curbless designs, the door is eliminated too. The showerheads are set back far enough so that you can wash and splash without getting the floor outside wet.
Steam showers are right behind walk-in designs when it comes to increasing popularity. Many find the chance to enjoy a spa experience in the comfort and privacy of home hard to resist. At the push of a button, the shower fills with comforting steam heat in just minutes. Shower units are available with built-in steam generators with extras like aromatherapy or a generator can be installed to work with an existing shower. When you’re done enjoying your steam, simply turn the shower on for a refreshing rinse.
Universal Design and Safety Considerations
A new shower offers you the opportunity to plan for the future with features that make it easier and safer to age in place. From a handheld showerhead to grab bars and built-in seating, it pays to think ahead when planning a new shower installation. Features like built-in niches for toiletries are thoughtful extras worth considering too. Ensuring that showerheads and sprays come equipped with scald protection is the most important consideration when it comes to shower safety. Shower faucets that “remember” your ideal temperature and water pressure are also available.
Whether you choose an affordable option like an acrylic liner for an existing shower or a brand new shower surround complete with custom tiles, you can count on the experts at Handyman Connection of Ann Arbor for a professional installation. We’re here to help ensure that your idea of a dream shower remodel becomes a reality that delivers pleasurable bathing experiences for many years to come.
