Unique Master Showers

Do you start your day with a shower? The morning ritual is pivotal to waking up and embracing the day. Perhaps you gravitate to the shower each evening to wash away the stress of the day and settle in for a good night’s sleep? Which camp do you find yourself?  Regardless, the shower is a daily ritual by most everyone. We have compiled some helpful information to aid you in creating your own beautiful shower design.   Let us help you to make your shower the best it can be!

walk in curbless shower with glass panel and picture window

This waterfront client chose a minimalist style and made the most of a knock-out view. Their design calls for a large curbless walk-in shower with a pebble floor and no shower door. In place of a door, glass wall panels were installed.   Allowing natural light to flow into the balance of the space from the picture window offers a more spacious look. Floor to ceiling wall tile makes the bathroom conducive to the steamy effects of several jets and open style.

Are you asking why a pebble floor?  This type of shower surface has become popular. You are able to choose a natural stone with all the natural dimensions or it can be cut so that that the surface is flat and level. In this method, the stone is sliced in half to make a smoother surface. More homeowners are choosing this flooring for its resilience and the earthy look and feel. Pebble floors are more durable than any other surface.  Many of our customers also like the foot massage you can receive when showering.

Walk-In Shower

Something to consider when choosing a large walk-in shower design is the possibility of cold spots, the places where the hot water does not extend. Also, the elimination of a door to close can allow the steam to easily escape and make for chilly areas within your walk-in shower. On the upside, a shower without a door or a frame-less door is easier to clean. Take into consideration the size of your water tank by gauging the amount of water needed to enjoy a hot shower.
Are you a busy professional or a senior?  You may find opting to remove the tub in your master bath and add a large walk-in shower to be a better fit for your lifestyle. This can easily be done with most bathroom configurations.  When the tub is removed the space available grows for increasing your present walk-in shower or adding a new one. The wasted space around the edges of the tub is eliminated and incorporated in the new shower design. By eliminating the tub the tub wall no longer divides the bathroom space giving the bathroom a larger appearance.
Walk-In showers with a curb-less design are perfect for aging in place needs.  Wheelchairs can roll in or homeowners with walkers can easily shuffle through the shower opening.   Eliminating the swing of the door or stepping up over the curb creates easy accessibility. This allows for better mobility and safety for those with health issues.

Functional and Beautiful Showers

Enjoy the experience of showering in your own one of a kind shower. This homeowner chose a vertical mosaic tile pattern to wake up the body before the start of the day. The curved walls and custom made niches are finished with glass to allow natural light to flow into the shower from the large picture window. A very unique style to fit their own unique taste. This is a curb-less design steam shower and incorporates a bench for reclining and fit for two. Read about the benefits of a steam shower.

Our client chose to incorporate porcelain Crossover Sabbia wall and floor tiles with mosaic tiles installed vertically as an accent on the shower walls and a wet/dry seat. The same color scheme is echoed in the metallic P&L Circles above the freestanding tub. (Image in the mirror) A beautiful monochromatic theme with a modern style brings this 1998 master bath into the present for these homeowners.  They went as far as to install a state of the art self-flushing toilet and hook up and niches for tablets to keep up with the latest news.  The shower also includes “smart” temperature and water pressure controls in the new design.
