When is a shower no longer just a shower? When it appears in a custom home. Here are seven tips for designing your next bathroom beauty.


1. Exercise This

  • This cylindrical exercise room shower is a far cry from a locker room stall. Marble tile and tall windows add indulgence to the workout experience.
  • A tower of sprays, jets and dual heads massage tired muscles and wash away every last bit of stress.


2. His-and-Her Showers

  • This sleek, glassed-in shower has his-and-her doors.
  • A built-in bench, bilateral nooks and a centrally located showerhead make washing up easy.

3. Coming Clean

  • Coming clean is just a byproduct of this luxurious shower room. Multiple shower heads and soothing steam provide a spa experience every day.
  • No lip between the shower and the rest of the bath makes for a smooth transition. The different sizes of the multihued slate tile mark where the shower room begins.


4. Rain or shine

  • This tiled shower space includes both a traditional showerhead and rainshower piece.
  • Natural light floods in through clerestory windows, providing ample indirect lighting.

5. Built-in Beauty

  • This oversized, glassed-in shower room offers a programmable system plus a rain shower and hand piece. A built-in seat and corner shelves add to the convenience factor.
  • From floor to ceiling, the space is clad in soothing earth-tone stone tile, alternating between square-foot pieces and mosaic.

6. Spa Experience

  • Homeowners can enjoy the ultimate spa experience by installing a sauna next to their shower.


7. A show stealer

  • The claw-foot tub may seem like the focal point of this master bathroom, but the roomy shower behind it steals the show.
