Upgrading your shower room may not be high on your priority list, but you have to consider doing it if you plan on doing a renovation. It would be best if you work with a savvy professional to ensure that this area will continue to be as comfortable and private as possible. Several upgrades don’t cost much and could significantly improve the appearance and functionality of the area.
Installing luxury fittings need not be expensive. Several products can update and upgrade the area and make it look more pleasant. So you can quickly turn a dull shower room into one that has a luxurious, spa-like aesthetic without breaking the bank.
Here are a few things you must consider.
Installing a floating vanity
One way to make your shower room feel luxurious is to install a floating vanity. This will open up the space between the floor and the bottom of the vanity. Trace the borders with LED strips, and you’ll make the feature look and feel more luxurious.
Consider upgrading the shower
Consider installing a shower cabin to segregate the shower area from the rest of the room. It will eliminate water sprays on the floor and provide privacy, especially if you choose a model with frosted glass. You should also look into changing the shower head with a spa-like waterfall or handheld shower head. If you could also install a heater system to induce steam baths, it would improve the space.
Shower room entertainment
Interior designers are also toying with the idea of putting entertainment in the shower room. You could invest in a state-of-the-art sound system or place a Bluetooth speaker in a recessed alcove and blast your music while you take your shower. If you can’t miss the news or a televised show, consider a small screen television in the room for your entertainment.
Update the storage options
Explore mixing closed and open cabinets with storage bins to put cosmetics and other grooming products away from the countertops. Consider rattan or woven baskets to elevate the aesthetics of the storage and break up the monotony of colour or a wall of cabinets.
Upgrade the lighting fixtures
There are no hard and fast rules regarding lighting fixtures in a shower room. Instead, consider changing the boring bulbs with recessed lighting, pin or drop lights or even a small chandelier. You can even consider sconce wall lamps to add a touch of elegance. You can also look into putting LED light strips to trace the borders of the walls and mirrors for better, more flattering lighting.
Bathroom vent fans
Improve the airflow in the shower room by installing vent fans. This will not only improve the ventilation but will also deter the growth of mould and mildew as it whisks moisture away from the walls and floors.
Upgrading the shower room may not be on the priority list for home improvement, but you should consider it. There are several ways to improve the area’s appearance, comfort, and functionality without spending too much.
