Modern and Functional Shower
The pictured shower has some very interesting features. Clearly it’s built for someone who is aging or planning to age in place as it contains a bench for sitting, two grab bars, and a removable hand held shower head.
The recessed shelf is nice as it allows storage without an additional protrusion into the shower area.
What is most interesting (to me) is the combining of engineered stone material (Swanstone for example) with the accent tile strip. While some engineered stone materials can be cut like wood, I don’t personally know any remodelers who actually do that.
This one did, unless engineered stone products now come with fake accent tile strips, which did not used to be the case and I suspect still isn’t.
As you can see, the same accent tile is used for the horizontal trim strip as is used for the vertical surface of the corner bench, while the floor tiles (which unfortunately don’t show well in this image) are a style of pebble tiles, which is to say they intentionally look like pebbles. This is a very nice effect.
Please notice there is a second fixed shower head in addition to the hand held one.
The frame less shower doors help give the room a feeling a greater depth as visually the space inside the shower is “pulled” into the larger room because the barrier between the two is so transparent.
All in all, an excellent job!
