3 Types of Shower Styles

Any bathroom remodeling job wouldn’t be complete without making improvements to the bathtub or shower. But for most homeowners, opting for a bathtub isn’t really that much of a practical option. In most cases, homeowners around Coeur d’Alene, ID would simply opt for a shower. While it isn’t as sophisticated as a bathtub, it does get the job done, and with a wide selection of shower styles to choose from, who’s to say you don’t have much of an option to make your bathroom as beautiful as possible.

With that being said, let’s take a look at the different types of bathroom shower ideas and styles so you would have a better idea of what you should be looking for the next time you do bathroom remodeling.

This shower style is somehow misunderstood by many to be the typical shower idea with glass doors — boring and bland. But with a team of bathroom remodeling experts, the “typical” rectangular enclosure becomes a symbol of elegance and contemporary design. See, today’s rectangular enclosures aren’t limited to the tiled walls that the old showers have. These days, bathroom remodeling ideas take into consideration more elegant materials such as patterned glass to highlight the beauty of the shower’s interior. Now pair that with good shower walls or simply a captivating interior pattern and you’ll definitely feel sophisticated the next time you take a shower. Furthermore, if you’re gearing for a small bathroom remodeling, rectangular showers are ideal as it won’t take up much space given its 4-wall feature.

Curved enclosure

When you’re opting for a bathroom that screams sexiness with a touch of mellow feel, you would want to go for this type of shower style. Be reminded that this requires a good amount of space within the bathroom as compared to other styles. So for those who don’t fancy curves, you might want to reconsider your choice and proceed reading the rest on this list.

The neo-angle strays away from the 4-corner style and adds another one to make it look more dynamic. The glass does not simply angle at 90 degrees but instead, angles at 45 degrees, this creates 5 angles at minimum. This is a perfect option for Coeur d’Alene, ID homeowners looking for shower ideas for small spaces as the structure gives off an illusion of increased floor space. As it stands, the neo-angle shower style creates a sense of space without compromising much of the real estate available within the existing bathroom. Take note that in order to experience the illusion of an increased shower area, one should use glass walls instead of the traditional mosaic tiles.


Tub/shower combo

If money isn’t a concern for you and having to hit two birds with one stone is your thing, then opting for a shower/tub combination is definitely the way to go. The layout is quite simple. A bathtub is installed within the bathroom and a shower is mounted on top of it. For those who want to lie down and enjoy every bit of their bath experience while still being able to benefit from the ecstatic sensation that falling water can bring, having this type of style is definitely one you should consider. Take note, though, that even if it sounds as simple as it looks, the mechanics behind it is anything but simple. But then again, if you hire professional bathroom remodelers, that wouldn’t be a problem, to begin with.

So there you have it, a list of the most common (but highly pleasing) shower styles available for your next bathroom renovation.
