Shower Remodeling Inspiration

Looking for inspiration for your shower remodeling project? Pinterest is great for gathering ideas. But, it doesn’t hurt to get a little inspiration from experts at bathroom remodeling. Inspired Remodels turns remodeling dreams into reality. Here’s a few ideas to spark your creativity.

Tuck It Away

Storage is always a problem in any niche added in shower remodeling projectsmall room. It poses a real problem in a small bathroom. Use the space in the shower to add storage. Niches are nifty. Niches keep personal grooming products where you need them; in the shower at your fingertips!

Niches are a great opportunity to add flair to the shower too. That’s why your shower remodeling project should include niches. Use contrasting tile in the niche or continue the existing tile pattern. The choice is yours.

The depth of the niche should be 3 1/2 inches. This corresponds with the size of the underlying studs. The length of the niche can be 12 inches to also correspond to the studs. Niche height varies. If you put your niche from 48″ to 60″ from the shower floor, it will be a handy height for most people.

 

Wonderful Windows

Light is always important to making a small space look larger. A window may be just what your shower remodeling project needs to make the room light and bright. Set the top of the windows 80″ from the shower floor. Frosted glass provides privacy while still letting light in the room.

Seat or Bench

Include a seat or bench in your shower. It’s handy for shaving and makes showering for the elderly or disabled much safer and easier. It’s a perch for enjoying a handheld shower and doubles as extra storage area. 

Put your bench in a corner or on the wall opposite of the showerhead. Tile it with contrasting or complementing surfaces. A shower seat or bench is another way to express your decorating style in your shower remodel while adding utility.

Custom Cabinets Express Your Style

In the kitchen, in the bathroom or in any room of the house, a critical component is the cabinetry. Only custom cabinets give you the widest variety of finishes, doors and hardware that can add subtle beauty or dazzling color. Custom cabinetry gives you the freedom to express your style and Inspired Remodels can turn your dreams into reality.

Waypoint, KitchenCraft and Decora Custom Cabinets

These days you don’t need a carpenter to build your custom cabinets on-site. That means custom cabinetry is more affordable than ever before. Major brands such as KitchenCraft, Decora and Waypoint build your cabinetry off-site and then deliver it ready to install.

Whether it’s for the bathroom, kitchen or laundry room your custom cabinets offer more storage solutions than you will find at the big box home improvement stores. Just imagine a room where beauty and function are fused to perfection! Deep roll out trays and base waste basket units keep kitchens and baths organized and clutter-free. Scalloped deep roll out trays and tilt out trays store toiletries and personal care items out of sight, but never more than a fingertip away. Wine storage inserts store wine in the kitchen but are perfect for storing towels in the bathroom. You get the picture!  And if you don’t, a designer from Inspired Remodels can help you with a custom cabinet design that fits your needs and your budget. From Shaker to Farmhouse or Modern or French, there is a cabinet style and finish that expresses your personal style.

Why Custom Cabinets are Better than Stock

If you need special depth or height cabinets, you need custom cabinets. Stock cabinets are prebuilt in standard sizes. Custom cabinetry is only built once the order is placed. This gives you total freedom to get the cabinets you need to fit your space perfectly. You need custom cabinetry if you need:

  • flush toespace
  • matching interior finish
  • extended stiles
  • increased or decreased depth
  • increased or decreased height

In addition, when you go custom you get a greater variety of wood stock, doors, finishes and trims. Stock cabinets aren’t designed to last but a few years; many are made from particle board. Custom cabinets are made from quality materials and will last for many years. Using custom instead of stock just makes sense for your kitchen remodel.

Bathroom Designers Tips for a Spa-Like Bathroom

You don’t have to go to the spa to experience a spa-like retreat. If you follow these five tips by bathroom designers, you can have a spa at home.

FlooOrange County bathroom designers use faux wood ceramic tile to give warmth to bathroomsrs with Warmth

Spas are relaxing because they appeal to all of your senses. Achieve the yin yang of relaxing warmth and coolness with wood-like flooring.  Wood provides warm visual appeal, but it’s not practical for wet areas. Porcelain and ceramic tile that looks like hardwood is the answer. You get the look and feel of hardwood with the ease of maintenance of tile. It resists moisture, scratching and scuffing. It’s perfect for the bathroom. The tile can have a traditional tile surface or a woodgrain finish.

But that’s just the start. Use underfloor heating to keep bathroom chill at bay. Your toesies will be toasty with heated floors. Heating can be applied as part of a new floor or can be applied between floor joists to existing floors. It’s cost effective too. Just heat the bathroom when it’s in use.

Thirsty Towels

Be sure to set out plenty of towels. Don’t use just any towel. Splurge on high absorbency towels that dry fast. Eco Dry towels by Welspun are plush and wick water away from your skin then dry quickly on the towel bar. Dermatologists recommend you pat skin dry without rubbing. Eco Dry towels are perfect. For even more luxury, place towels on a towel warmer.

Frameless Shower Doors

bathroom designers and homeowners love frameless shower doorsEven the smallest spa appears spacious through judicious use of light and glass. You can make your bathroom look larger using the same tricks. So, ditch traditional shower doors (and the hassle of keeping sliding door tracks clean) and forgo shower curtains. Get frameless glass shower doors. Extends the shower seamlessly to the rest of the bathroom.  Look how this bathroom looks larger by the use of a frameless door.

Rainshower Heads

 Simulate the feel of showering in a rainstorm. Install a rain shower style showerhead. These heads are mounted on the wall or the ceiling. Water falls from overhead instead of a more vertical direction. You can get one the size of a dinner plate or a model with a removable handheld shower.  Most models have multiple settings from a gentle shower to an invigorating pulse.

Soaking Tub

A soaking tub can be the ultimate spa indulgence in your bathroom. When shopping, decide what features are important to you. Are arm rests or foot rests key?  Do you want contours? Don’t be shy about sitting in a tub in the showroom (dressed of course) to make sure the size is right. Speaking of size, make sure your hot water heater has capacity to fill the tub. Acrylic tubs are less expensive but cast iron stays warm longer.
