How do you feel about taking a shower? It’s a bit of a personal question, sure, but it’s an important one. Taking a shower should help you feel calm, relaxed, and rejuvenated. If your shower’s aesthetic just isn’t cutting it for you anymore, it may be time to upgrade it. But what can you do?
Ditch the Subway Tiles
To start, ditch the subway tiles. Sure, they have some benefits. Larger subway tiles mean less grout to clean, but do you really want your shower to remind you of underground transportation systems? If you just don’t want to give up your larger tiles, at least opt for a new style. There are fun textures and shapes that can add some interest to their appearances, such as beveled tiles or ones made from marble to give a touch of elegance. You can find tiles in hexagon, square, rhomboid, and other shapes that can make things a bit more intriguing. Even arranging them in a different manner, such as a herringbone design can be a good option, to say nothing of the many colors you can find.
Toss Out the Shower Curtain
If you’ve been using a shower curtain for years, you might be surprised to find how much you prefer to not have one once you’ve swapped it out. Changing them out for glass walls and doors is arguably one of the better upgrades you could make, especially considering how much they can open up your bathroom. There are multiple options in regards to texture, thickness, and even color. For a truly elegant look, opt for simple, clear, frameless shower glass.
Swap Out Your Hardware for a New Finish
As much as some may like it, brushed brass has had its day and is a bit outdated now. While hardware with shiny, silvery finishes will always have a place in the bathroom, other finishes are trending. Matte black offers an especially striking look that can be very much in line with modern trends. As an added bonus, the matte finish makes it less likely to pick up fingerprints.
It’s funny how much of a difference changing the right thing can make in a room. Sometimes bringing new life to your bathroom is a simple matter of upgrading your shower. Think carefully about what you want your shower experience to be like and how you want it to look with the rest of your bathroom so you can design an upgraded appearance for your shower that will have you looking forward to stepping in every time.
