I was a little bit nervous when our designer presented us with the plans for our bathroom shower remodel, but I decided to trust her and am so glad that I did. We essentially created a tub and shower combo based on something she saw at a small bathroom ideas 2019 showcase that she attended earlier this year. By enclosing it in frameless glass doors, you keep the bathroom feeling very open and spacious but you still get the functionality of a large tub/shower. Beyond the shower remodel, she also covered the walls in gorgeous stone subway tiles with a matching mosaic floor that looks so elegant and luxurious.
As an interior designer, I can say with certainty that most homeowners neglect bathroom upgrades. Shower remodel cost are not as high as many imagine, and it's totally doable to replace an old surround shower system with an updated shower and freestanding tub for less than you imagine. Doing upgrades like this makes your bathroom a safer space, often bringing it up to code while introducing fun design elements. By adding shower tile designs, you can customize the look and feel of your room for very little money. And today's tile is so much easier to clean than that of days gone by.
I know that this bathroom shower remodel is a little bit outside of the box since we included the tub in there as well, but I wanted to share the finished look because I think that this is actually an awesome space saving idea. I had been scouring the inter webs trying to find shower remodel pictures that offered something a little bit different than all the rest. I actually stumbled upon a similar designs in Architectural Digest and was so inspired by their ingenious idea to make a spa by installing the tub inside of a large walk in shower. I think that it makes the space far more luxurious, not to mention it maximizes the floor plan and decreases the overall bathroom remodel cost because the tiling and plumbing is all concentrated into a single area.
We hired a new contractor (a different one than we had used for the rest of the house) to tackle our master bathroom shower remodel and could not be more pleased with his work. As you can see from the photos, we really wanted one of those huge bathroom shower designs with multiple heads, a bench, and a steam feature. This is something that my husband and I have been dreaming of for years, so when we finally saved enough to do it, we wanted to make sure it was as beautiful and high end as possible. We went with a dark brown granite to coordinate with our existing vanity and countertops that you can see in the rest of the bathroom remodel pictures.
This year's tax return home improvement project was a bathroom shower remodel that converted our old tub area into a a large walk in unit. My family and I just aren't bath people, so we never ever found ourselves using the tub. I have seen a lot of small bathroom designs that convert existing tubs to a larger walk in steam shower and I knew that that is exactly what I wanted to do in our guest bath. It was actually a fairly quick and inexpensive process since the hard part was already done for us (installing all of the plumbing). All we needed to do for our bathroom remodel 2019 was pick out the perfect tile for the shower that would match our existing vanity and countertops.
I love a good bathroom shower remodel because it instantly improves your quality of life by creating a lovely zone for you to relax in after a long day or before a hectic morning. I have been seeing so much about using frameless glass doors to create an open shower in the corner of a small bathroom remodel. This is such an amazing concept because you can install a larger shower than you may normally because the room remains so open looking. You can't even tell from these photos that the shower door is mere inches away from the toilet because the glass appears nonexistent. This is definitely one of my favorite trends in small bathroom ideas with shower units, and I anticipate it gaining in even more popularity over the years.
