Reader Question of the Week

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Ceramic / Porcelain Tile, Design and Decorating, Kitchen and Bath, Reader Question

My husband and I are thinking of redesigning our master bathroom. We would like to add a walk in shower.

Q. What is the recommended size of the shower?

A. The recommended size for a shower is 36”x36”. Showers are only required to be 30”x30”. Of course there is no rule that says you can’t go bigger.

Q. What glass is the easiest to keep clean?

A. Obscure glass hides the most day to day use. Clear glass is easier to wipe down. The answer depends on how often you like to clean! If you are really worried about keeping a glass shower door clean, just etch the glass. Not only can you feel the texture of this lace-like design on both the inside and outside of the shower panels, you can also get a sense of movement under light. The best part: It’s naturally resistant to fingerprints and stains, which makes this product a top choice for this high-traffic space.

Q. If we decide to install a bench in the shower, what height should it be?

A. Shower benches and seats should be 17”-19” above the shower floor and 15” deep.

Good luck with your home improvement project. Here are a few other trendy design ideas you may want to consider:

To make your shower stand out you can always elevate it.

Add water proof speakers so you can get your groove on while you get ready to start your day.

Add fully programmable steam shower controls and a niche for candles and accessories to create a spa-like experience.

Be creative with your materials. Use river rock, slate or tumbled marble and make your bathroom as unique as possible!
