There are so many choices for a bathroom shower…which should I choose?! This is a question on every homeowner’s mind when they decide to remodel their bathroom. You’ve no doubt seen pictures online of dream bathrooms that look like they belong in a mansion or your dream home. However, if you have a small budget, don’t despair!

Your choices might seem overwhelming, but we’re going to break it down for you.
Double Bathroom Showers Take it to the Next Level
Double bathroom showers are amazing. You can incorporate so many different elements into a double shower and make your bathroom shower exactly what you want. They allow for more than one person to suds up at the same time, and can also give a couple some alone time together. Two birds, one stone! Simple shower heads can be used in conjunction with other features such as a rain shower head to give you a relaxing and luxurious shower. Double showers are, by design, larger than regular showers and can also accommodate benches and multiple shower heads, and can also be made to be handicapped accessible.
Walk-In Showers are a Classy Update to a Bathroom
A walk-in shower is often as large as a double shower, as mentioned above. In essence, though, a walk-in shower is one with no door. The shower can be open on one end, have no walls at all, or have a “hidden” opening. Home magazines and websites often show walk-in bathroom showers with extravagant lighting, unique stone or tile work, and luxurious added features such as benches, multiple or specialty shower heads. Something to consider when designing your walk-in shower is ensuring functionality as well as attractiveness. For example, having a master bathroom with a walk-in shower with no walls might not be practical whereas a walk-in shower with one end open might serve you better in the daily usage of your bathroom.
Hydrotherapy and Steam Showers are Good for the Soul
Besides the obvious relaxing and invigorating effect that steam provides, there are many therapeutic benefits to Steam Showers and Hydrotherapy. Inhaling steam – or moist, hot air – not only detoxifies your body but relaxes you as well. Many people pair steam therapy with the use of essential oils, which can intensify the effect of both. Your options for a steam shower include acrylic, steam and bath combinations. Electronic controls within your steam shower allow you to adjust the steam settings, letting you fully enjoy the benefits.
