We all know that taking a hot shower is one of life’s greatest pleasures. But have you ever stopped to think about how to design the perfect shower for your home?
A well-designed shower can turn your bathroom into an oasis of relaxation and personal comfort. With the right fixtures, accessories, and layout, you can create a shower space that is both beautiful and functional.

Determine the Size
The size of your shower will determine how much storage space you have available in it. If you have a larger bathroom, then there will be more room for storage in your shower area as well. However, if your bathroom is small, opt for a small shower, as this will leave more room for storage elsewhere in the bathroom. If you want to get creative, you can make use of any space that is not being used by your shower head or faucet handles.
Consider Angles and Curves
The shape of a bathroom is just as important as its size. If you have an L-shaped or U-shaped bathroom, consider whether you want to include walls along the edges of the space. If so, they should be minimal so as not to interfere with your shower design.
Opt for an Open vs. Closed Shower
If you opt for an open shower, consider adding slimline wall units and shelves to allow for storage while keeping the room feeling spacious and airy. You can also install glass doors on both sides of the shower enclosure if it is large enough. This will enable you to use one side for washing while someone else uses the other side for getting ready in front of a mirror or shaving/makeup application area (although this may not be advisable if there are children in the house).
Include Storage Space Where Possible
Whether designing a master suite or a guest bathroom, it’s always good to include storage space where possible. Showering is a messy business, so having a place to store your shampoo and conditioner bottles will make life easier for everyone involved.
Incorporate a Soaking Tub or Bathtub
Showers can be great for quick cleaning, but if you have time and energy, soaking tubs and bathtubs can be a great way to relax after a long day at work or school. If you don’t have enough room for both types of bathing spaces in the same room, consider building an extra room on the side of your home dedicated solely to soaking tubs and bathtubs.
When it comes to designing the perfect shower, there are a lot of factors to think about. Each part of your shower can make or break the overall design, from size and functionality to style and accessories. The key is finding a balance between all these elements so that you’re left with a space that both looks nice and provides what you need.
