If you’re looking for bathroom renovation ideas, sprucing up the shower is a fabulous place to start.

Today’s shower designs offer easy access to homeowners and guests of all ages, helped along by digital technology and a soothing, contemporary vibe.

Updating your shower is a great way to improve relaxation while adding convenience, safety and aesthetic appeal.

Let’s take a look at 5 shower design trends that can boost the style and function of your whole bathroom.

#1: Walk-In Showers

This is one of the best ways to improve simplicity and ease of use in any bathroom.

The walk-in shower is a popular aging in place improvement because it can reduce the risk of tripping over a threshold and makes things a little easier for residents with limited mobility.

But it’s also growing in popularity with homeowners from every generation.

  • Walk-in shower designs work well in smaller bathrooms where space is at a premium.
  • A walk-in goes perfectly with natural materials and glass.
  • It gives your bathroom an open feel and is a good choice for those looking for an industrial-inspired design.

#2: Shower Door? What Shower Door?

While there are many options to choose from when it comes to shower doors, some homeowners are eschewing the shower door altogether.

  • As with a walk-in shower, doorless shower designs can free up some extra space in your bathroom.
  • Your shower floor can be sculpted to direct the water flow toward the drain, and a simple glass wall can provide an elegant visual cue.
  • Pair a doorless shower with a large shower head for an invigorating bath-time experience.

#3: Add a Wet Room

In other homes, a wet room is replacing the traditional shower enclosure to create a more luxurious, spa-like atmosphere.

  • Wide glass panels can enclose a tub and shower combo.
  • Recessed wall features and shelving keep towels and bath supplies close at hand.
  • Add built-in benches and shower seats for even more relaxation after a long day or tough workout.

#4: Smart Showers

Want a shower that caters to your every bath time whim? Thanks to the magic of digital shower technology, your wish is granted.

  • Temperature control. Some like it hot. Others like it cold. But everyone can get the shower temp just right with digital settings that learn your individual preferences.
  • Colorful lighting. Set the right mood with light settings to help you wake up, get refreshed or relax before turning in for the night.  
  • Steam systems. Soothe those sore muscles and feel the stress melt away with advanced steam features.
  • Music. Take singing in the shower to a whole new level. A smart shower head lets you get clean as a whistle while rocking out to your favorite jams.

#5: Go Contemporary

You don’t always have to re-do the whole bathroom to get a new look. Just changing the design of your shower can fill the whole space with new energy.

  • Rain shower heads. Still a popular choice for adding a graceful touch and relieving tension.  
  • Glass. Manages to combine classic warmth with a modern feel to add style to any bathroom.
  • Metal. Give your shower a charming, window-like appearance that goes well with rustic or industrial designs.
