How do you choose the right bathroom shower for your small bathroom? It is easier than ever before with the newest designs in the marketplace. Choosing a shower stall can be as easy as picking out your next husband. Seriously, there are some really beautiful shower stalls and small bathroom decor available today and it is fairly easy after you have measured your bathroom space and determined what size will work best for you.
Choosing a stall over a bathtub was a fairly easy choice for me. While I used to relish the times I spent soaking in the bathtub, I now love my new oversized shower stall which replaced my old bathtub. Small shower stalls used to be relatively unheard of but now there are so many to choose from.
Your small bathroom shower plan should be drawn up first especially if you are remodeling. Make sure to measure your space correctly so that you will know what size to look for. There are rounded, hexagonal and square showers to consider and you may need to take a look at the different styles before you decide which one is right for you.
Styles & Designs
Shower designs for a small shower enclosure can start out at two feet by two feet. While you may need more room, this gives you the basic idea of where to start. Shower enclosures can be relatively expensive, so you need to look into all the designs for small bathrooms available to see what may or may not be in your budget.
Selecting the right shower for a small bathroom can be a fun thing, but be careful as to not fall in love with the first one you see. Usually the first ones are the most elaborate and the most expensive. Shopping online as well as in hardware stores can give you a little bit more variety. Something else to consider is your age. If you are getting older, you may need to consider a shower stall that is easy to get in and out of.
Shower and Tub
If you have the room and would prefer a shower/tub enclosure, there are many to choose from. Consider your space and again measure where you need it to be. Again, age is a consideration as we have gone from a shower/tub enclosure as I mentioned above not only for convenience, but the fact that as we age we are more prone to fall. My shower is built to step right out of, thus eliminating my risk of falling.
Small showers are nice to have and if you have the room and the luxury, you can add a shower stall to your bathroom that already has a tub. A free standing tub and a corner shower for example can come in handy and can give your bathroom more functionality, thus making your small bathroom renovation much easier.
Choosing the right small bathroom shower just takes some extra planning. You can easily accomplish this with the tips noted above. You have more choices than ever and it is a great feeling to find the right one for yourself.
