Shower Remodel

100_0601 Of the many areas of your master bedroom suite that you might consider for remodeling, often the shower in the master bathroom gets attention last. It just seems that there is very little you can do with a shower. But if you have looked at some of the really creative bathroom renovations that have been done by skilled remodeling experts, that shower can be the jewel of your bathroom. Not only that with a well designed redesign effort, your shower can become a place of luxury and pleasure rather than just the place you go to clean up and get it over with.

Most standard showers use a molded plastic form to make up the sides of the shower. This is functional but hardly something you would want to show off.  So one step you can take to transform your shower from something ordinary to something special is to look to put in a black marble shower shell or some other more ornate and beautiful design to make your look elegant.100_0599

When you perform a complete remodeling of the shower like this, you will see your shower in a completely different light.  Instead of always making sure the shower curtain is drawn to block off the shower from view, that part of your bathroom will be a thing to be admired in its own right worthy of being shown off to guests as much as the stylish work you have done to other parts of your bathroom.

It is always best when you begin to design a new shower renovation to build around the plumbing that supports your existing shower.  But by changing out the facets and shower heads with utilities that are both functional an beautiful, you can combine those accessories with that lovely shower shell to create a unique look that can fit in perfectly with the statement you are making with the rest of the bathroom.100_0604

If you want to think big and you have the budget for it, that shower area can be transformed from just a bathing location to a luxury spa.  If you can expand the floor space that the bathtub and shower take up, you can put in a Jacuzzi so when the time comes for a bath or shower, that event can be a time of relaxation where you reward yourself for a hard day’s work with some self-indulgence in those soothing waters.  These are just a few of the ideas you might consider to make the humdrum shower in your home become something that is far from humdrum.  By putting some creative thought into what can be done with the shower, it can become a lovely additional element of your total home décor and one you will be proud of as well.
