Designing and creating a new shower room can be a challenge and sometimes all you need is a little inspiration to help you along the way. Your new shower room should be a place where you can relax and enjoy a refreshing shower to awaken your senses. Here are ten shower room ideas to help you create your perfect space.

Your shower room will most likely be the smallest room in your house so it’s important that you make the best possible use of available space. Making use of high gloss surfaces and reflective materials helps to bounce the light around creating a more spacious feel. To create extra space think about installing a large, recessed mirror, which provides a fantastic way to add useful shelving for toiletries or decorative objects. Large high-gloss tiles in the same tone will also make your shower room appear more spacious as well as creating an ultra-modern appearance.
Choose wall-mounted fittings
