Modern Shower Designs - 3 Considerations for Remodels

Creating a modern shower design involves considering the material finish of the interior of your shower, choosing sleek fixtures and installing a new shower door. Remodeling your shower can change the look of your bathroom completely. Here are the basics of shower design:

Finish Materials 

The most common interior finish material for showers is tile because it comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. Shower tiles are available in ceramic and natural stone, including granite and marble along with slate, among other finishes. You might also cover the interior surfaces of your shower with stucco or durable shower inserts. If your budget allows, consider solid slabs made of marble or granite, which is a particularly modern look.

Modern tile designs typically don't feature excessive texture; solid shades such as black or gray tend to look the most sleek. Also consider installing an accent wall within your shower with a more lavish material, such as brightly colored mosaic tile.

Shower fixtures include diverters, dials, and shower heads. Brushed nickel and chrome look modern especially, while brass and copper are generally found more commonly in traditional designs. Think of these fixtures like jewelry; they add a level of detail and will transform an otherwise simple shower into a sleek and modern room. Look for fixtures that feature clean and simple designs, but be sure to match all of your fixtures with the same metal surface finish; if they are mixed and matched, the effect won't be very elegant.

Modern Doors 

Although curtains are the most common way to divide your shower area from the rest of your bathroom and cheaply prevent water from splashing, consider installing a glass door. Typical glass door enclosures feature two sliding doors, or a single door that swings closed and open. For an especially modern look, consider installing frameless shower doors. They almost disappear since there isn't a visible metal body at the edge. Frameless doors can even wrap corners with a clean, silicone joint. Make sure the contractor you select to install your doors is very precise. Sloppy work shall prevent your shower design from looking elegant and finished.
