For many people, the shower is an escape from reality ... perhaps the only "me time" in an otherwise hectic day. But if your current shower isn't living up to relaxing expectations, it may be time for a facelift.
Don't think you have time or money? Don't throw in the towel just yet - an improved shower is within reach. Follow these fixes to make an amazing improvement to the shower.
Shower curtains may keep water where it should be, but they also have a tendency to make a shower feel smaller, dark and cramped. An easy solution to this problem is to install a curved shower rod. These unique rods add an elegant and luxurious look to the room while also moving the curtain away from your body, creating a more comfortable experience and adding up to 7 inches of elbow room. Whatever curved shower rod you choose, be sure to coordinate the finish to match the rest of your bath fixtures.
Downsize and organize
Fewer people are living alone these days, reports the National Association of Home Builders, which means you likely share your shower with others. A shower shelf is an ideal solution to provide adequate storage and keep everyone's everyday essentials neat and easily within reach.
Chance of showers
A simple showerhead update can dramatically improve your showering experience. With several styles available, the only difficult part is figuring out which one best suits your needs.
Rainshowers - for relaxing, full-body coverage, a rainshower is the right choice. These showerheads are often larger than their standard counterparts, allowing the user to receive all-over coverage rather than a concentrated spray.
Handheld showers - a handheld shower brings the water flow directly to you. This type of shower allows for any family member - no matter the size or age - to safely and easily shower.
Standard showerheads - these are far from basic. With many collections offering multi-function spray settings, it's easy to create a personalized showering experience.
Hang it up
The final step to a fabulous shower experience is to ensure you have a place nearby to hang a warm robe and towel. Adding a robe hook or towel bar just outside the shower is a solution that can also add a stylish accent to the bathroom. And, once you've added new accessories, finish off the renovated space with a plush robe and matching towel set.
By following these fixes, the shower can become an everyday retreat for relaxation and enjoyment.
