Shower Inspiration from All Angles

By: Kealia Reynolds From all angles

We believe a shower should be a retreat. And let’s be honest, we love all kinds of showers: small, luxurious, bold, neutral, tile, wood, and stone. We picked out 10 of our favorites to give you a few ideas of your own.

Why we like it

Never overlook stone as a shower material. This seamless glass shower with a stone accent wall brings the SoCal landscape inside. If you can’t have an outdoor shower, this is the next best thing.

Why we like it

The mosaic-inspired tile and conglomeration of blues create a calming, secluded retreat. The detachable waterfall shower head is another indulgence, providing a total-body, rain-like experience.

Why we like it

The shower is simple and functional, with a recessed shelf to hold shampoo and a bamboo seat that doubles as storage when not in use. The all-white shower stall lets the cement tile floor pop in this beautifully designed bathroom.

Who doesn’t love an outdoor shower? Perched atop Tribeca’s historic 44 Lispenard Street, this sleek and modern outdoor shower in light-washed wood paneling is both urban and calming.

Why we like it

I doubt you’ve seen a bathroom with more spunk and pop than this one. The highlighter-yellow walls are complemented by a neon red-orange tile floor. It would be nearly impossible to not get a boost of energy from this retro-styled shower. Good morning, indeed.

Why we like it

Maybe it’s the stately marble or maybe it’s just the clean and polished lines in this bathroom. All we know is that the shower affords a modern and luxurious getaway for those who are starting their day or winding down at night.

Why we like it

This shower in classic Calacatta marble is fresh, simple, serene. Though the marble is one of the more popular features in the space, the main reason we’re in love with this spacious shower is the built-in seating block, perfect for when you just need a second to decompress.

Why we like it

This gorgeous freestanding porcelain tub lives in a Manhattan loft, but feels like it might belong in a Santorini cottage tucked into a hill. Remember that with just a little plumbing work, a great tub can be converted into a great shower.

Why we like it

Old world meets modern luxury. This reglazed copper freestanding tub belongs on a pedestal. If you’re going with a tub/shower combination, a beautiful tap and carefully chosen shower curtain are key.

Why we like it

Never be afraid of a bold color. The emerald-green tile is offset by soft brunette wood and a minimalist sink. If you’re hesitant to add so much of a loud color, simply balance with a neutral for muted effect.
