7 Tiny Shower Solutions From Real Homes
Even if you have a small bathroom, you can still have a luxurious shower with these tips
We all dream of spacious bathrooms with a spa-like tub for soaking, but the reality is, we mostly live in condo units and small homes with only a tiny shower stall (usually one meter square, or smaller!) for our daily ablutions. What to do? Get creative with these ideas from our Real Homes:
Mix materials and colors
Charming wainscoting defines the dry areas in this country-style home. Once you get to the shower stall, natural stone-patterned tiles take over, and continues on from the floor finish.
Go for urban angles
In his condo bathroom, Marco Misa Torres chose a simple, frameless glass shower enclosure, and opted for angular, clean-lined toilet fixtures and fittings to match the sleek, urban feel of his unit.
Accent with hardware
Bryant Cuison added flair to his tiny bathroom by installing an industrial-style rail for his shower door as a useful but stylish touch.
Define with a different-colored panel
In stylist Donna Cuna Pita's second bathroom, she defined the shower area from the rest of the white space by using gray subway tiles. Patterned black-and-white tiles from Mariwasa provide contrast on the floor.
Create a niche
Designer Jenny Sohu had a niche built into one of the shower enclosures of this townhouse. A built-in niche is a perfect organizing solution for small bathrooms, so that you don't have to add bulky shelves.
Use copper for oomph
Want to add color and style to an all-white, small bathroom? Do what Donna Pita did and choose copper-finish vintage-style bathroom fittings. She found these at CW Home Depot Ortigas.
Add a quirky touch
Sometimes a small bathroom can benefit from a bit of humor. The Marcelos installed a classic public restroom sign leading to their guest bathrooms. You can get signs like these from Binondo hardware stores.
