Contemporary Shower Design Ideas

Investing in a shower upgrade can greatly improve your bathroom’s function and value. A survey by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry discovered that most homeowners want a barrier-free shower, or one that is easily accessible and doesn’t require climbing in or out. Handyman Connection of Lexington suggests some contemporary shower ideas that add a fresh and modern appeal to your bathroom.

Shower Design

Add a Focal Wall

One of the biggest and most recent bathroom trends is the use of a focal wall. Most homeowners invest in beautiful fixtures and finishes, and a bold shower wall can help draw the eye to the beautiful details in your shower space. To create a focal wall, you can grain-match stone with an intricately detailed pattern or choose printed glass as a backdrop for your shower.

Invest in Ample Shower Lighting

Lighting is a highly important feature in your bathroom, and the best part about this addition is that it’s an affordable one. When deciding where to add lighting to your home, consider the areas that you want to highlight and the mood you want to achieve. For instance, a wash of light on a tile wall can create a pristine and calming mood. You can also try looking at showerheads with built-in LED lights for a more modern appeal.

Install Mixed Tiles

Tiles are an excellent material choice for the bathroom. Create a custom, unique look for your bath by mixing different tiles and patterns. This not only creates an interesting look, but it also adds layers and texture to your room, improving its depth.

One way to do this is to add a contrasting stripe of tile in a bold color. This adds a fresh contrast to the room. You can also try installing the tiles vertically for a striking appeal. A different patterned and colored tile allows you to create an eye-catching focal wall.
