Designing a contemporary shower room can be a challenge, but sometimes all you need is some inspiration to help you along the way. A contemporary shower room is all about sleek, minimal styling, and it should be a place where you can escape to leave the stresses of the day behind. Here we share our tips and advice on how to create a contemporary shower room.
Fit a wet room glass screen
Wet room glass screens provide a great way to achieve a sleek, streamlined look, and they help to enhance a sense of space. Wet room glass screens come in a range of sizes, and they can be fitted direct to the floor or on top of a low profile shower tray
Enhance a sense of space
If your shower room is limited for space making sure you choose the right products really can make all the difference. Opting for high gloss surfaces and reflective materials help to bounce the light around to create a more spacious feel. Another great way that you can enhance a sense of space is to install a large recessed mirror; this also provides shelving for toiletries or decorative objects. Large glossy tiles give the illusion of a bigger shower room too.
Go for wall hung fittings
Wall hung basins and WC’s not only provide a sleek, stylish look to your contemporary shower room, but free up floor space, and allow for easier cleaning.
Storage is essential for hiding all that bathroom clutter, so fit a mirror cabinet or a vanity unit to keep surfaces clear.
A modern hydronic towel warmer will make a practical addition to any contemporary shower room. Available in an array of styles and sizes, hydronic towel warmers provide you with the basic luxury of warm, fluffy towels. Nothing feels better than grabbing a warm, dry towel straight after your shower.
The shower area should be the main focal point of any contemporary shower room. Why not create a feature wall with eye-catching mosaic tiles, and opt for a statement shower head for added wow-factor. Shower panels are also perfect for your shower room, as they incorporate a range of functions such as large shower heads, body jets and shower handsets for the ultimate showering experience.
Create a hotel-spa look
Creating a hotel-spa look will add a feeling of luxury to your contemporary shower room. Choose limestone tiles for the floor and walls, and tile them all the way up to the ceiling. Add the finishing touches with some luxurious toiletries and new towels.
