With tubs giving way to walk-in showers in terms of popularity, Don Harrier, principal at HKS, suggested taking advantage of the extra space to include a bigger vanity or to make the shower a statement piece with glass partitions and a great rain shower head.
Standard efficiently designed bathrooms have a tub, double vanity or pedestal sink, and toilet lined up against one wall, known as the wet wall. If this layout is getting on your nerves and your standard sized bathtub has just enough space to wet your elbows when you shower, then consider removing the tub and installing a walk-in shower with a frameless glass enclosure. Include niches for bath accessories. Additional storage can be installed at a certain height on the wall, making space for foot traffic. This arrangement will create a spacious feel as it makes the vision flow beyond the tub and the shower curtains that were obstructing the line of sight.
Try something new if your standard 3-light vanity fixture does not create an ambiance you love. As well as functional, lighting should create a soothing environment that helps calm and relax during a shower. To achieve this effect, hire an electrician to install a medium-sized chandelier in the center of the bathroom or above the Jacuzzi, paired with a row of colored blown-glass light fixtures by an accent wall (the wall across from the vanity is a great location). These light fixtures would typically be installed above a kitchen breakfast counter or a bar table. But who says you can not use them in the bathroom? We are here to break the mold and customize your space. Concealed lighting is always great, especially if you have a decorative stepped ceiling.
