Remodeling Your Shower? 4 Features To Include In The Plans

Posted on

If you're tired of your shower, it's time to talk to a remodeling contractor. You might not realize this, but you don't need to remodel your entire bathroom. Instead, you can hire a contractor to remodel your shower. Remodeling your shower can give your entire bathroom a whole new feel. Best of all, you won't need to overburden your budget with a total bathroom remodel. If you're not sure how to plan a shower remodeling project, read the list provided below. You'll find four tips on how to design the perfect shower. 

Take the Step Out of the Shower

If you're ready to remodel your shower, the first thing you need to do is get rid of the step. Traditional shower stalls include a slight ledge that must be stepped over for entry. Unfortunately, those steps can lead to trip and fall accidents. Not only that, they're difficult to step over when you're dealing with mobility issues. On top of that, those ledges can be tough to clean. To eliminate those issues, choose a curbless shower. With a curbless shower, there are no ledges or steps to navigate. Instead, you'll walk right into your shower. 

Ditch the Shower Curtains

If you're still using traditional shower curtains, it's time for a change. Now that you're remodeling your shower, use this opportunity to install a frameless shower enclosure. Frameless shower enclosures actually provide several benefits. First, they allow you to get rid of the old-fashioned shower curtains. Second, they allow you to get more natural light into your bathroom. Finally, they're much easier to keep clean. 

Install Dual Shower Heads

If you're ready to make major improvements during your shower remodeling project, don't forget about the showerhead. Your current shower might have one basic shower head, but that doesn't mean it needs to stay that way. You can improve your shower experience by including at least two shower heads in your remodeling project. First, choose a stationary shower head for the all-over water experience. Second, install a hand-held shower head for those times when you don't want to get your hair wet. 

Include Built-In Benches

Finally, if you want to take your shower remodeling project to the next level, be sure to add at least one built-in bench. You might not think that you need a bench, but that's not the case. First, your bench will give you a place to relax after a hard workout or a long day at work. Second, your shower bench gives you a safe place to sit while you shave your legs or wash your feet.
