If you are currently thinking about renovating your home, the shower is a goal that offers amazing benefits for a relatively small budget. Your morning shower can be the most luxurious part of your day with just a few exciting improvements. Here are some of the upgrades that maximize comfort and take you into a world of relaxation.
Rain shower head
A shower head is a quick upgrade for any shower. Modern, luxurious shower heads are available in a number of options with many luxurious functions. Rain shower heads are an entertaining new option that changes the feeling of showering so that it feels more like a warm rain storm. This type of shower head replaces the traditional shape with a flat, thin sheet that hangs directly above you and drops water from the entire surface (often 1 foot x 1 foot) instead of spraying out from a narrow area.
If you have a small shower or a shower in the bathtub, you can make an amazing change for yourself by increasing the floor area of your shower as part of the renovation. It changes everything when you can stretch your arms without hitting a wall or move until the water hits just the right angle.
More space can make a shower so much more luxurious, but it's one of the most expensive improvements out there. For this reason, you may want to consider the next idea as a budget alternative.
Curved shower bar
Curved shower rods are just normal shower rods that have been bent so that the shower curtain is pulled out a few meters from the tub. By installing a curved shower rod, you can feel like you have a lot more space, even if you don't change the square meters. It at least gives you more freedom of movement so you don't bump into the damp shower curtain when you raise your arms to wash your hair or grab shampoo.
These shower rods usually fit in showers designed for straight rods. They are only slightly more expensive than regular rods, and you may even be able to find them for sale. Affordable or not, they can make the shower experience much freer.
Your shower is ready to join the Internet of Things! Get in on the trend by adding Bluetooth panels to your shower at an affordable price. Small speakers and touch panels can be built into the waterproof housing in the wall and cost around a few hundred dollars. After that, you can enjoy music, voice calls, and other phone features without putting your phone at risk of being held over the bath or too close to the shower.
And right in front of the shower … a towel warmer!
Finally, increase the level of luxury when you come out of the shower by installing a heated towel rail instead of your original one. Heated towels will be almost as luxurious as the warmth of a hot shower, and this is a luxury you can enjoy every time you get out.
