3 WALK-IN SHOWER DESIGNS AND IDEAS FOR SMALL BATHROOMS
Posted on October 10th, 2017.
Taking a shower has to be one of the most relaxing activities of them all! Nothing equates to the experience of feeling the steady trickle of lukewarm water on your body as you let your troubles get washed away and emerge as a rejuvenated and reenergized individual. And even if you have a small bathroom, it doesn’t mean having to let go of the showering perks in your house. Here are 3 walk-in shower designs and ideas that you can use in small sized bathrooms to put a relaxing spin to your bathing experience.
Design Hack#1: Using the corners
Instead of cordoning off an entire section of your bathroom to fit the walk-in shower, why not make the most of the corners? Fitting a shower area in a single corner with a neo-angled glass door opens up a lot more space in the bathroom for installing other essentials like a vanity, the sink, and WC. Such walk-in showers, if designed right, will have larger square footage while appearing to be tucked away neatly in a corner – an amazing idea for congested bathrooms with space constraints.
Design Hack#2: Omit the tub
If you think you can manage life without the presence of a fully functional bathtub in the house, try omitting this fixture from your bathing space entirely. This one move will open up a ton of floor space which can then be used to erect other bathroom essentials or to add more room to your walk-in shower. You can also choose to set your walk-in shower at the very rear end of your bathroom now, thereby making the space look even more expansive.
Design Hack#3: Maximize the light
Small bathrooms need smart lighting and ambience to make the space appear to be more than what it actually is. When it comes to walk-in showers, you can choose transparent glass doors instead of opaque/semi-opaque options to allow light to enter every corner of the space. Using reflective tiles and lighter hues on the walls will again, act as a means to make the space seem bigger and brighter. And if you don’t mind a wet floor, try removing the shower doors altogether to create an enormous bathing space that stretches from the back wall to the door.
Hope these design ideas will help in fitting a walk-in shower inside your space-constrained bathroom. Have fun remodeling!
