The one thing that I have noticed about small shower ideas on here, is that just about everybody uses these frameless glass doors/walls. Absolutely nobody actually has a shower curtain in their homes these days (which honestly I am thrilled about). I started out looking at grey bathroom ideas on here, but ended up getting the most excited about this mostly beige and tan design. Something about the warmth of the tile really drew me in, and I think it would blend better with the stain of the wood floors that we have throughout our house. Not only that but, since it is not the typical marble that everybody and their mother wants these days, I think that it would be far easier to find at a better price point. The next step is for me to decide exactly how to imitate these walk in shower designs.
I was a little bit nervous when our designer brought up such elaborate small shower ideas because I thought that it would be too busy for the space, but I can't believe how much I love the result. First of all, because we did the glass shower doors, we decided to go with a more narrow stall. Just cutting off those two inches seemed to really open up the room. I would highly recommend considering this if you are in the planning stages of your small bathroom ideas with shower will be totally gutted. Because of the slightly smaller size, I felt more comfortable being a little bit more bold with the tile patterns and sizes. She suggested going with marble since it continues to be one of the trendiest materials in shower tile ideas 2020. I have always liked marble, so I was definitely on board with that. Mixing up sizes and shapes of tile also helped to make the room appear larger.
The biggest thing that I have taken away from looking at so many small shower ideas on here, is that it is super important to do a walk in shower with a glass door if you really want to maximize the perceived size of the room. Bathroom walk in shower ideas tend to open up the space because you don't have a wall right next to the toilet (where the shower tends to be located). Having this perceived wall essentially cuts off another 3 feet of an already short room. I also think that it is usually more beneficial to keep your small bathroom makeovers within a modern style motif, because the innate clean lines and simple finishes tend to just work better to not clutter or overwhelm more limited layouts.
I never would have even considered small shower ideas with this bold of a pattern before, but after I saw my sister-in-laws new house I am willing to experiment more. She did a lot of research on the best walk in shower ideas for small bathrooms because she is really into design. She showed me this mosaic tile that she was planning on using and, I did not say anything, but I thought she was crazy to put it in here. I definitely could not see her vision for what it would look like. Well she is definitely a far better designer than me, because I am absolutely drooling over their new small bathroom remodel. It looks like something right off of HGTV and actually feels so much bigger than before. I am definitely going to enlist her to help with a few rooms in our house now.
I am curious if anybody on here would think that I am totally out of my mind to use this home as inspiration for small shower ideas, or if you actually think that it could work in here. I am just so in love with this teal glass tile, but our house is not exactly huge so we don't have a spacious master bath like this. From everything that I have read, most people highly suggest keeping things simple as far as tile shower ideas for small bathrooms. I am sure the average person would interpret that as white or grey tile in a simple pattern, but all teal glass tiles could be considered simple too right? haha. I am thinking that I will make the bathroom shower ideas the focal point of the room and then keep everything else extremely neutral (even more neutral than they did in here). Hopefully that will balance the space.
I am surprised how creative people have been able to get with small shower ideas on here, because so many of these manage to look like a full size room. One thing that I have noticed about the small bathroom designs with shower stalls tucked away in the back of the room, is that all of the ones that seem to work the best have all glass walls on the front side. In my opinion, this helps to disguise the fact that it is a shower, because your eye is drawn to the back wall rather than a tub or shower curtain that would usually immediately start after the toilet. Obviously that would make the tiny room feel quite cramped, but the technique they used here actually makes you focus on the decor of the beautiful bathrooms rather than the size.
