Homeowners view their showers as spots for wellness, relaxation, and rejuvenation. When designing or remodeling a shower, there are several small design choices that can add advanced functionality and serenity. Redfin suggests considering designing built-in niches for more storage. One of the top reasons homeowners dislike their bathrooms is because there’s not enough storage, but built-in niches can tackle this common headache, and if designed correctly, can remain out of sight. Maximizing natural light with large windows in or near the shower can liven up the area and boost an occupant’s mood. Skylights can add natural light while maintaining privacy as well.

Add a seat to your shower
Adding a seat into your shower is a simple luxury that can bring comfort and sleek design to your shower. For those who do not have the space for a tub, a shower seat for older adults or kids is a great alternative to help increase safety when bathing. 

Raise the ceiling for better air circulation
One of the most critical features of a bathroom is air circulation. If your bathroom lacks windows or does not have proper ventilation, it can cause mold and mildew to grow on your walls due to increased humidity. More so, the air in your house may feel sticky and warm. To help assist with your bathroom’s ventilation, installing a shower below a higher ceiling or raising the ceiling can help steam travel more efficiently to where it will be properly ventilated outside your home.
