A convenient walk-in shower area is a must for a good bathroom design. Nothing can outmatch the benefits of a quick and energizing shower routine in the morning. That is the way to go for a fresh and clean start of the day.
A walk-in shower is a wet area that should be fully tiled and properly separated from the rest of the bathroom space.
Porcelain, ceramic and stone tiles are a great solution for any shower area. Mosaic tiles and frieze tiles, on the other hand, can make a beautiful accent and add more detail to the design.
If you want to protect your bathroom from splashes of water coming from the shower area, then you might want to add a see-through glass screen, or at least a half-wall.
A walk-in shower area should be appropriately equipped with high-quality sanitary fixtures. You can choose from a large variety of options – shower columns, rail showers with handsets, wall-mounted shower heads, ceiling-mounted rain showers, hydromassage panels etc.
All these come in different styles and finishes, so you can rest assured that you will find an option that corresponds to your design preferences.
Another thing you might want to consider is creating in-wall niches that are a neat alternative to bathroom shelves. Also, you might want to add a tiled seat or bench to the design.
