Once you have made the decision to fully remodel your bathroom, the task at hand is to determine the design aesthetic and materials you want to use in your remodeling project. While you have numerous components to consider in your decision-making process. However, one of the most important is your choice in shower enclosures. The shower enclosure you choose can set the tone for your entire remodel and will determine the style of every other element you select. So, get to know some of the more unique options available in shower enclosures for your bathroom remodeling project. Then, you can get your contractor started on your renovations as soon as possible.

Asian-Inspired Shower Enclosures

Have you always had a taste for Asian design simplicity and the zen of clean lines? Well, if this is the case, you can use that inspiration in your bathroom remodeling design. Asian-inspired shower enclosures can be designed to mimic the design and style of a shoji screen. Shoji screens are the latticed inner or outer door that uses white paper to fill in the frame. 

In the case of shoji-style shower enclosure, the white rice paper screens are replaced with frosted glass. The effect is a beautiful shoji screen shower enclosure that is effective and brings Asian design simplicity to your home in a simple, easy way. 

Open-Designed Shower Enclosures

Sometimes a shower can feel so isolated and small because it is fully enclosed. This sensation can be particularly problematic for people who suffer from any degree of claustrophobia. If this is the case for you, or you just prefer a more open design aesthetic, you can incorporate this into your shower enclosure design. 

A walk-in shower with no lip or door blocking the entrance to the shower can give you the open design you seek while not causing problems with the remainder of your bathroom design. To accommodate an open shower design, you will need to select a floor tile that will carry throughout your entire bathroom and into the shower. These tiles need to be waterproof and naturally resistant to mold and mildew in order to function properly. You will also need to be sure that the shower is at least partially walled to prevent puddling and water flow to areas of the bathroom that do not have proper drainage. 

As you can see, there are a variety of unique design options available for you when it comes to shower enclosures. Use these two unique options to jump-start your creative thinking and choose a shower enclosure that suits your design aesthetic and makes your bathroom remodeling project unique and interesting.
