Showering was previously something that you did when you were in a hurry. You jump in the shower, lather up, rinse off, towel dry and move on. Today, it can still be the invigorating boost you need to get your day started, but it can be much more. With powered jets, and steam units, the shower enclosure can include options to pamper yourself, in much the same way as having a long lingering soak in a tub. In some homes, an over-sized and fully outfitted shower has replaced the tub.

In previous periods, the normal bathroom that was usually found in apartments and smaller homes was a bit more difficult to enhance, but if it was airy and clean, it could add a special ingredient to the residence. It has perhaps become conventional wisdom, although it still may not yet be fully proven, but many believe that they can tell a lot about a person, by the condition of their bathroom, and particularly, the shower enclosure. It can be easy to customize your shower to suit your needs. If you are thinking of remodeling your shower enclosure, there are a few things that you should consider.

First, take a look at the amount of space that you have. Although, a fully appointed shower enclosure can be as highly valued as a luxurious whirlpool tub, ensuring that it fits your lifestyle first, especially if you are going to replace the bathtub. There are multiple alternatives for designs that can easily be included in your shower enclosure. The designs for showers are as varied as people's imagination. If space is at a premium's mall built-in shelves can come in handy for holding shower supplies. You can also add a distinct design statement, when the shower is enclosed by attractive half walls.

If your enclosure includes a shower combined with a tub, you may save both money and space, but some compromise is needed. The tub showers can be less convenient and less safe than regular showers. Another disadvantage is the problem of keeping the water from being sprayed outside of the shower enclosure. Shower doors are much better than curtains, but they take up room, and they are harder to keep clean.

You can pamper yourself by installing multiple spray heads in your shower. Floor to ceiling glass walls and doors can add to the openness of the room, but you can also add privacy when using frosted glass. Freestanding showers can be bought as a complete unit, or they can be fabricated on site. They are usually constructed of molded fiberglass or cast acrylic.

Freestanding or prefabricated shower units now come with as many features as custom-designed units. You can find multiple, adjustable, stationary and hand-held sprayers and shower-heads. Steam, body jets, and special effects, such as waterfall and rain heads can also be included for a special touch. You can also find units with a remote control tv or stereo system. If there were any essential pieces to include, it would sometimes be a shower seat, and you might install a shower light that is designated for use in wet areas.
