For some, the shower is the pragmatist’s answer to the bathtub. Who has time to luxuriate in the shallows when there’s work to do and tasks to be accomplished?
As a result, showers are often designed along a similar premise: get in, get out, and take minimal joy in the immediate surroundings.
Fortunately, that sentiment has changed in recent years, and showers are experiencing a long-deserved and unequivocally modish renaissance.
Five-star spas and celebrity mansions aren’t the only domains that demand an equally palatial shower. The modern home is just as deserving of a cool shower system fit for the domestic elite, and designers have finally answered to the mainstream call. As up-to-date in performance as they are breathtaking in appearance, these shower design ideas of the new era would strike envy in the hearts of our aristocratic ancestors.
Whether you prefer the sexy splash of a Miami-inspired encasement or the more toned-down allure of Big Sur slate & stone, your modern shower serves as an extension of your greater M.O. It may be an enclave few are privy to, but all the more reason to curate a destination that restores and revives, as well as cleanses you of worldly concerns.
