12 Luxury Shower Trends

Who wouldn’t love to walk into a beautiful spa-like shower in the morning? There’s something almost magical about starting your day in a beautiful, warm space. Bathroom fixture trends tend to move a little slower than other home decor styles. Primarily because of the expense and hassle of replacing built-in items when remodeling a bathroom. In recent years, however, shower looks have changed in not only style but function. From rain showerheads to multiple water jet arrays, you’ll see updates in “how” showers are designed and built as well as changes in aesthetics. Check out our review of the latest luxury shower trends to see what’s happening in the world of shower design.

 

 

Wood-look tile

Tile designs evolve every few years, and tile that looks like wood has been one of the hottest tile flooring trends of the past decade. Now that wood-grain look is being used in showers and it is stunning! Most people wouldn’t use real wood in their shower design because of the ridiculous amount of maintenance required, but with this tile choice, you can bring a truly unique look to your shower.

Stone slab

Your average suburban tract home tends to come with a standard shower done with tile walls, or cheaper low-maintenance inserts typically made from acrylic or fiberglass. When you see something different — like this shower done with slab stone walls, the look instantly screams quality. You’ll find this look in anything from marble, to granite, or even cultured stone. We love this eye-popping blue marble with brass fixtures.

Double showerhead

Double sinks have been standard in master bedrooms for decades, so why not take that efficient couple-minded design and expand it into the shower? No more waiting for your mister to finish his shower and hoping you won’t be late for work! When you expand your shower size and add a second showerhead, you can both make your 8am meetings, no problem.

Continue walls/floor into shower

One of the fascinating things to watch is how shower design has changed as class shower walls and doors have become more prevalent. Rather than viewing the shower as a separate little chamber or closet within a room, many designers make a choice to integrate the shower design into the look of the room. This is a great example of how that can be done by continuing both the wall and floor tiles through the shower space. Beautiful!

 

 

Feature wall

Interior designers have used feature walls in room design to give interest and focus to a space. Take that concept and apply it to a shower and you have a shower feature wall. This is a great way to stretch your budget by buying enough designer tile for just one wall and using a neutral color on all the other surfaces to help set it off.

Shower “room”

Nothing says luxury like turning your shower into something almost like another room. By walling off an area and devoting it all to tile and shower fixtures, you can give your shower space a true high-end spa flavor.
