Stunning Shower Room Ideas

Create your own private haven with these inspiring shower room decorating trends. From metro tiles and marble to Crittall style and concrete.

Ramp up the luxe factor in your bathroom with a dedicated shower space. Larger, walk-in shower enclosures are becoming a big trend, as they help create that desired spa-like feel. Some modern bathrooms are adopting Crittall-style shower screens – particularly fitting in monochrome bathroom schemes. At the other end of the spectrum, bathroom wallpaper can work wonders to create a more eccentric, maximalist vibe.

And while we all love the metro tile – it’s classic, affordable and great in most settings – people are stepping away from the usual brick pattern and arranging metro tiles vertically to emphasise the height of a space or diagonally to create something out of the ordinary. You can take the look further with herringbone or chevron patterns. And as if that wasn’t enough, manufacturers have played around with the signature aesthetic of the tile to produce a longer, thinner version that gets our vote.

Or go for a really striking shower backdrop with scalloped fish scales, hexagon or encaustic tiles.

Meanwhile, marble is quite the style chameleon. Team it with period fixtures and fittings for a traditional look, introduce dashes of warm wood to get a Scandi vibe, or pair it with sleek sanitaryware to create a minimalist aesthetic. Whatever the combination, marble with polished chrome or glamorous brass taps never fails to make a smart statement.

Dark bathrooms is a trend that indulges your urbane side rather than your inner goth. Temper black with white or warm materials to keep the area from feeling gloomy. Very little has escaped unscathed from manufacturers’ fascination with this impactful shade, with countless sumptuous black tiles, shower enclosures, sanitaryware and accessories to choose from. Even brassware is in on the act. Concrete is also making its way into bathrooms, bringing with it a growing demand for more urban, industrial-inspired bathrooms.

In search of a shower enclosure but limited on space? Forgo hinged doors that open outwards for a sleek sliding alternative.
