By tucking the curved freestanding tub into a corner by the window, designer Joan Suzio was able to capture space for the walk-in shower. A niche recessed in the wall is a tidy spot to place shampoos and soaps to keep them off the floor or bench. Although a curbless shower with zero threshold was desired, the curb helps keep water off the bathroom floor.
The newly designed shower features a mosaic backsplash that is repeated throughout the room, and niches are built into the walls to provide storage for essentials. Classic fixtures include a standard shower, four body sprays, a rain showerhead and a hand-held showerhead, bringing together the modern luxuries of a spa with all the traditional aesthetics of a bathroom.
This shower features cream and brown tiles in various shapes to create an eye-catching look. Clay grouting was used between the tiles to add a softer edge, while a bench boasts the same marble seen throughout the bathroom. A window allows natural light to flood the space and brushed bronze fixtures add a finishing touch.
This transitional master bathroom is filled with glamorous touches, from the square-edge soaker tub beside the picture window to the massive glass-walled shower. A modern vanity features a waterfall edge, and column lighting is installed directly on the mirror for an uninterrupted look. The gray and white palette is both chic and soothing.
While this spa-like bathroom has a contemporary, linear look, it’s softened by the textured accent wall in a floral pattern and the arced shower wall. The curved motif is repeated in the lines of the sinks and the freestanding tub.
A brown marble shower boasts a small window and open entry, creating an more spacious feel in this bathroom. Wood cabinetry and neutral counters fill the room with warm tones and complement the brown tile floors.
A glass enclosed walk-in shower features two showerheads and spa jets, adding to the luxury of this modern bathroom. Mod fixtures and a floating vanity are adjacent to the large sliding glass doors, offering spectacular tropical views.
The natural wood window frame and floors warm this white master bathroom at HGTV Dream Home 2011. A glass shower enclosure visually lengthens the room and keeps the space feeling open and airy, while a simplistic metal chandelier accentuates the high ceilings.
Glass walls enclose a spacious walk in shower next to the modern white bathtub. A gray and white tile accent wall creates a textural backdrop for the white room. Contemporary lamps with long stainless steel posts are mounted on the wall.
This contemporary shower's size is large and long, but its style is leading-edge, lean and lovely. The use of neutral tiles throughout contribute to a spa-like look and feel, and the contoured built-in bench is a great architectural addition to follow the lines of the shower.
Make sure your bathroom will age gracefully along with you. If you’re going to remodel it anyway, you will never regret adding universal design features that accommodate users of all ages and physical capabilities. Typical UD features include handheld sprays, grab bars, wider doors and curbless showers. It’s a minimal expense to install these features during construction compared to adding them later, and modern versions look sophisticated and design-forward, as in this sleek bath from Greige Design.
