  • Getting Started

    The physical space of your shower can take a variety of forms. Creating a look that fits your style is the first priority, but you will also want to think about more practical things like storage options and ease of cleaning. This is one space in your home that will probably be used daily if not multiple times per day, so you want to choose pieces that work with your life.

    Here are a few thoughts to keep in mind as you explore. And don’t worry if you don’t have all the answers right now. This guide will help you answer the questions and find solutions that work. 

    1. What type of shower are you working with–master bathroom, guest bath, kids? Each may have a different purpose, which would lead to a different solution. If you’re just beginning to think about the shower space, the Shower Space Considerations Guidewill help with the bigger picture.

    2. What shape will your shower take: a rectangle, square, corner or a custom shape? Bases are available in each of the three standard shapes but tile or stone would be needed for a custom-shaped base.

    3. Do you plan to include tile or stone in the shower? If you want some tile, try a semicustom solution and choose a solid base with tiled walls.

    4. Do you want the custom look of stone or tile without the hassle of grout? Shower wall and base systems let you customize the details but are easy to install and care for.

    5. How many beauty items do you store in the shower–shampoo and conditioner, body wash, loofahs, razors, soap? Storage solutions might turn out to be your favorite feature.
