Inspiring Bathroom Shower Designs

Looking for Bathroom Shower Design Inspiration?

While there are many types of showers to choose from, selecting a design that is right for you can drastically improve the ease-of-use and enjoyment of your showering experience. (5)


When you’re looking for bathroom renovation inspiration, one of the best places to start is with the contemporary designs of other bathrooms. Thankfully we’re here to tell you about all the best bathroom renovation ideas 2020 and 2021 have to offer.

Add a Niche

When browsing shower remodel ideas, consider adding a niche to your shower design. Many of us have been guilty of placing bottles of shampoo and conditioner on the floor or balancing them on the soap dish. A shower niche is a simple storage space set in the wall of your shower where you can neatly store these shower accessories that usually get in the way.

Open or closed door

When selecting your walk-in shower design you have the choice of an open or closed door shower. This decision ultimately comes down to a style choice. Those who prefer a more private bathroom experience can opt for a closed door design with walls that are either fully transparent, semi-transparent, or etched glass. One downside to closed door designs is that it does mean more surface area that needs to be cleaned.

A negative of the open shower is, when you’re in it, you feel the cold from the room. An enclosed shower keeps you warmer.

Tub to Shower

We’re always looking for ways to make our bathrooms more spacious, but if you’re feeling your bathroom is a bit too roomy you can always opt for a tub to shower design. A tub to shower design is when you have a standalone walk-in shower in the same room as the bathtub. This design works best when a walk-in shower adjoins the bath but you can also have polymarble trays installed here instead.


Shower (wet room)

Shower rooms consist of a walk-in shower with fully tiled walls. Ensuring proper ventilation in these shower spaces is key to maintaining the longevity of the grouts and sealants. Shower rooms can also be designed to include storage spaces to keep towels and other shower accessories.

Shower and Bath combo

This setup is ideal if your bathroom is a bit cramped or you’re a young family who would benefit from both a bathtub and a shower. This practical and low cost option gives you the best of both worlds by encompassing a shower over the bath.

Something for Small Bathrooms?

When considering your shower design ideas it is important to think about the maintenance of your bathroom. Keeping your bathroom in good condition involves ensuring that your bathroom is easy to clean and well ventilated.

Thinking about the space

When choosing what type of shower you want in your bathroom, take time to consider the layout of the space. Think about where the light is in comparison to where the water will run.

Think about where the doors are, and if there are any obstructions in the bathroom. Consider how much space your bathroom currently has, how much additional space you need for storage, and how much moving space you think someone would want.

Understanding the use

Who is going to be using the bathroom will direct how the space should be designed. If you have small children in your home then you may be in need of a bathtub, whereas if you’re someone with mobility issues perhaps a walk-in shower would be a better design for you.
