Let’s face it. A boring, outdated bathroom is not the ideal way to wake up each morning. If you wouldn’t consider starting your day with a weak cup of coffee, then you shouldn’t put up with a tasteless bathroom either.
If you’ve been thinking about upgrading your bathroom, but don’t know where to start, the experts at Miller Home Renovations have the perfect solution—upgrade your shower! As a professional shower remodeling company, we’ve been transforming bathrooms for homeowners in the Portland and southern Washington region since 2008, and we have some great shower replacement ideas to help get your creative juices flowing and jump-start your bathroom remodeling project.
Jazz Up Your Walls
Are all of the elements of your shower the same color? They certainly don’t have to be! Shower liners are an easy way to add color and patterns to your shower walls without the need for a complete demolition. When you work with a professional remodeling company, you can even choose patterns such as granite, marble, and stone—without breaking the bank!
Go For a Modern Walk-In Shower
Walk-in showers are popular upgrades for a number of reasons:they provide easy access for older adults with the desire to age in place, anyone with mobility issues, and even households with pets! While upgrading to a walk-in shower may sound like a time-consuming and expensive endeavor, a walk-in shower installation can easily be completed with a stylish new shower surround. Your bathroom remodeler simply takes measurements of your old shower, and custom-crafts a shower surround that fits perfectly in your existing space!
Raise Your Shower Base
While walk-in and barrier-free showers are perfect for many homeowners, you can take your bathroom remodel to another level—literally—with a step-up shower. A custom-built step-up shower raises your floor just enough to install a shower base, without the need for upgrade to your floor joists. If you’re retrofitting a bathroom in a small or unique space, such as a converted attic, you can even select a bathroom remodeler that custom-designs shower bases to fit your exact specifications.
Create a Space to Sit
From built-in bench seating to removable shower seats, your shower will be even more relaxing with a comfortable place to sit. Shower liners and shower surrounds can both incorporate built-in seating, creating a luxurious space to sit back and let the water wash over you. While shower seating is typically recommended for older adults, anyone in your household can enjoy the luxury of a comfy shower bench or seat.
Let Natural Light In
If you enjoy taking a shower in natural light, you can easily brighten up your space by installing glass shower doors rather than a shower curtain. While this might not be an ideal idea if you need more privacy in your bathroom, many households find that glass shower doors are a perfect way to make their bathroom feel larger without a distracting shower curtain to block the view.
Install Handy Accessories
You can never have enough storage space in your home, especially in your bathroom. Modern shower liners and surrounds each have options for built-in shelving, soap caddies and more, so you’ll always have your bath products within reach. You can even add grab bars to enhance the safety of your shower and accommodate the needs of older members of your household.
