2015 Trends: Right Sized Showers

The importance of a nice, walk-in shower for a master bath cannot be underestimated!  Like the one pictured here, a very ample size is 60×42.  But we’re also seeing showers come down in size to something like a 3′ x 4′ footprint.  Not too small…not too large.  We call this trend “right sized” showers.  What many people don’t realize about showers that get too big…is that they also get too cold!  When the water can’t reach far enough to steam up and heat the air throughout the shower, it becomes a cold, drafty space.  And, perish the thought, add in the concept of a doorless shower – now we’re really talking chilly.  Along with the trend for right-sized showers we’re seeing more interest in custom, 3/8″ frameless clear glass enclosures. This type of door is a significant and noticeable upgrade for showers and bathrooms of all sizes.  Benches or seats, shower niches or shelves, and a complement of beautiful fixtures are also part of most shower remodeling projects.ing!
