For the ultimate memorable shower, consider the use of alternative materials. Teak wood flooring tiles, corrugated aluminum walls or colored (instead of clear) glass doors make for some unique shower ideas. Many homeowners are looking for contemporary shower ideas to create their dream bathroom. Regardless of what inspiration you take, remember to choose the best-quality materials you can afford, and keep your bathroom simple, uncluttered and low-maintenance.
Selecting the proper lighting in your bathroom is important because a light, bright room will feel bigger. Good lighting can transform the space and make all other design elements pop. Unless you’re particularly savvy with electrical work, leave electrical projects to professionals unless you’re just swapping out a fixture. In terms of efficiency, install LED lights. They use at least 75% less energy and last 25 times longer than incandescent lighting (and won’t heat up the room).
The quintessential colours of a modern bathroom are undeniably minimalist. Think white, grey, beige, cream, and black. Though this colour scheme is simple. It is made that way for a reason. These neutral colours bring to mind cleanliness, tidiness and organisation. There is simply no room for clutter when designing a chic modern bathroom. The lighter shades of this colour scheme like white, beige, and cream will also open up the room, making it feel larger. If you are renovating a small bathroom this is especially ideal.
Though you might not want or even use a bath tub, every home should have one to appease buyers who dream of a spa tub or those with young children (or dogs!). Take advantage of the shower/tub area to define zones in the room and create an accent wall by changing up the tile you use. You’ll want to select a tile that has a water absorption rating of less than 3% (lower than what’s recommended for the floors) and has good traction (a coefficient of friction that’s greater than or equal to .60).
