Chances are, when you think about the perfect bathroom remodel, you don’t picture a traditional tub with a shower above it. True, your current bathroom probably has this configuration, but as you plan your new bathroom, see if you can separate the two – have a tub, but also have a separate shower.
In order to add a separate shower to your bathroom, make sure to carefully consider available space. Perhaps you don’t have the room to separate the tub and shower, and your options may be limited. But, if you are contemplating a large remodel, it may be possible to gut the bathroom and create the needed space.
Once you know that you have the room, it’s time to start putting together the design for your shower. If you check large home improvement stores, you may find that they sell a shower kit. These can be a great cost savings and they don’t have to look like a square glass box. Some kits will help you easily create a glass block walk in shower.
As you put together your final design, you will have to balance your ideas of style with your available budget. But, with so many options out there, it shouldn’t be hard to find a good compromise between the two.
A good way to start your search is to visit your local home improvement store. You will get a feel for what they carry and the actual size and shape of the materials. There’s a possibility that the store will even have a full size display with different options. Even if they don’t have full displays, they will have smaller displays of shower heads and fixtures.
Once you have an idea of what you can get locally, then you can check styles online. This may be the best place to get overall design ideas on how to configure a bathroom with a separate shower and tub.
Knowing what is available locally as well as online will help you with creating the bathroom of your dreams. Even if you have limited space, there is a good chance that you can find a walk in shower design that will work.
Displays, pictures, and hands on feel of materials will go a long way to the perfect remodel. You may decide to buy a shower kit for ease of installation, or install unique walk in shower with an original design. Either way, you are sure to love your new bathroom with a tub *and* a shower.
