Your Master Bathroom Shower
If you’re planning a bathroom remodel to your master bathroom, don’t skimp on the shower. It’s an element you’ll use virtually every day and one that you can tailor to your needs and wants. Don’t let your shower be an afterthought, look at these options with your bathroom remodeling company.
Get Rid of the Grout (Or at Least Minimize it)
You can have a groutless shower if you choose marble slabs. With this option, you won’t ever have to clean the grout again . You can even have it on the floor when you have a stone company who can sand blast it to give it some grip. It’s a modern look and quite dramatic with frameless shower doors.
If marble isn’t to your liking or out of your budget, ask about minimizing grout lines. Although some inexpensive floor tile comes in sheets with pre-determined spacing, a good bathroom remodeling company has a tile installer who can customize the distance between tiles making for as little as possible. Plus, when you choose darker tile with darker grout, it doesn’t show mineral staining as quickly.
The Right Lighting
Not everyone thinks about the lighting in their shower, but they should. There are times when you want bright light and times when just enough is plenty. One way to add indirect lighting to your shower is by adding it above you crown molding around the edge of the shower. If your ceilings don’t have the height for this, consider a wall sconce outside the shower aimed at the ceiling rather than the floor.
Yes, that’s plural for a reason. Adding a second showerhead to your master bathroom shower can help with the morning rush. If you and your significant other need to get ready at the same time, consider designing the space with dual shower heads. If you just like the luxury of lots of water, consider the traditional placement as well as a waterfall showerhead from the ceiling. Just remember that your bathroom remodeling company will need to have a plumber add the necessary piping before the tile so make this decision early on.
A Real Bench
All too often what’s supposed to be a bench in a shower is little more than a ledge. If you want to be able to sit down in your shower, make sure you and your bathroom remodeling company discuss what you want. Measure out the depth they’re proposing so you know it’s going to work for your needs. Also make sure they install it properly so it isn’t left with standing water after every shower!
