If you’re planning to remodel your shower, you may be wondering which type of shower installation is right for you—and that’s exactly what this brief shower remodeling guide is here to help with! Read on to get some expert tips and professional recommendations for your family’s ideal shower design.
How to Choose Your Next Shower Installation
Although the stylish hardware and elegant detailing may be the most exciting parts to daydream about, they aren’t necessarily the first aspects you should consider with your new shower installation. Before thinking about all those finishing touches, you’ll want to make sure that you’ve chosen the right foundation.
To do that, first take some time to think over the following questions with your partner or other loved ones:
- How many bathrooms do we have in total?
- What are our other bathing features like?
- Will this shower be shared among many people?
- How old are the users, and do they need assistance bathing?
- Do we plan to live in this house for a long time? Or will we be selling soon?
- What is our maximum budget range?
- How much shower maintenance do we want to commit to?
With answers to these questions in hand, you’ll be ready to narrow down the perfect shower replacement for you—one that offers both form and function over the long term!
Our Top Shower Remodeling Recommendations
The Best Shower to…Save Space
Don’t have much room to spare? Then nothing beats a neo-angle shower!
Often called a “corner shower,” neo-angle showers sit in the corner of the bathroom and use the existing bathroom walls as part of the shower enclosure. Beyond saving space, the clever design of neo-angle showers often saves money on materials and installation labor, too.
The Best Shower to…Age in Place
If you’re planning to live in your current home permanently or if you have older loved ones already living with you, you’ll probably get the best return on your investment by choosing a handicap-accessible roll-in shower. These showers are built with:
- Barrier-Free Entry
- Easy-to-Reach Faucet Controls
- Handheld Shower Wand
- ADA-Compliant Grab Bars
- Slip-Resistant Flooring
- Optional Built-in/Portable Shower Seating
With no threshold to step over, this type of senior-friendly shower installation makes it easy for those in wheelchairs and walkers to bathe independently. They also give off an open, airy feel that makes bathrooms feel larger and more contemporary.
The Best Shower to…Share
If your new shower will be shared between your children or other family members, you might want to consider a versatile tub-shower combo. By combining both features into one, a bathtub-shower combo will provide the most flexibility for all users: Younger children can get help in the bath, while older kids, teens, and adults can choose between a relaxing bath or a quick shower.
The Best Shower to…Relax and Unwind
If attaining a spa-like atmosphere is a major goal of your shower remodel, then any of the above-mentioned designs could work for you! Just invest in some luxurious shower accessories to give your regular shower installation that high-end ambience you seek.
