The idea behind a bathroom remodel – or even a bathroom addition – is that it not only improves the function of the space but its appearance as well. It can even increase your property’s perceived value should you ever decide to sell your Waterloo Region home.
As the shower is such an important part of any bathroom it is certainly one of the elements that is probably due for an overhaul, but before you simply replace old fixtures for new, or have your current shower simply re-tiled, consider some of these great alternatives that are as functional as they are beautiful.
The Walk-in Shower
In a roomier bathroom, a walk-in shower can completely change the way the space feels as well as how it looks. As long as you are working with an experienced bathroom remodeling specialist such spaces will be every bit as functional and water tight as a standard shower and the open, airy look can be stunning. A walk-in shower is also worth considering from an accessibility point of view as well.
The Corner Shower
Many people with a smaller bathroom space opt for a tub/shower combination simply because they believe that they do not have the square footage to accommodate the two separately. A corner shower like this one, however, takes up surprisingly little space and the glass doors means that occupants won’t feel trapped or claustrophobic in anyway.
The Frameless Shower Enclosure
Another great way to add the illusion of space to a smaller bathroom space is to opt for a frameless shower enclosure. Here a shower area has been redone in a classic neutral tile that is then showcased beautifully by the glass door creating a modern/vintage hybrid that is simply stunning.
The Attic Shower
Although not as common as the basement remodel under the right set of circumstances an attic remodel can be just as beautiful. Here a bathroom addition, complete with glass-doored shower has made the most of the slope of the roof and the concept of an extra bathroom has been taken to another level!
The Closet Bathroom
Believe it or not, this clever guest bathroom was actually created in a converted closet! With a little imagination, you can actually make use of the smallest spaces and still get a functional room that looks great too.
