New Bathroom Showers for 2013

A luxury bathroom needs a state-of-the-art shower stall — no bland structures need apply. We’re talking cool tile, sleek bathroom fixtures and a door that blends seamlessly with your bathroom’s architecture. There’s no such thing as one size fits all, which is why we’ve put together a list with options that will excite and inspire no matter what your taste.

His and Her Shower

At least three times a week you and your significant other end up battling it out over who gets to use the bathroom shower first. Sharing isn’t an option, as your taste in temperature and water pressure couldn’t be more different. The solution may be this gigantic dual shower by Moen. The fixtures are placed on opposite ends so you both can enjoy a morning scrub down tailored to your liking without playing rock, paper, scissors over who gets the bathroom first.

Vintage Shower Inspiration

Modern glass shower units look painfully out of place in a Deco bathroom. That doesn’t mean you need to ditch your bathroom shower dreams for a claw foot tub. This walk-in unit’s partial wall beautifully mimics the bathroom’s retro architecture.

A Thoroughly Modern Shower

Decorative details aren’t your thing — you want a shower with sleek, clean lines and modern glass doors. This curbless unit is a standout without being the center of attention. It shares the same flooring and tiles as the rest of the room, and lacks the metal trim that edges many modern units. The end result is a stall that blends in seamlessly with the rest of the room.

Space Saver

Corner bathroom shower stalls are ideal for bathrooms that don’t have a lot of space to spare. But that doesn’t mean you need to install a prefab unit that lacks personality. This glass shower stall is definitely the star of any bathroom, thanks to a dramatic step-up, bold tiling and over-sized rain shower head.

Back to Nature

In a perfect world you’d be able to shower outdoors year round. But Canada’s harsh winters make that a total impossibility a good six months out of the year. This teak shower stall by Carmenta lets you get back to nature without risking frostbite. There’s no need to be concerned about water damage as the panels are completely waterproof.

Fool the Eye

You love fooling friends and family, which is why we guarantee you’ll be positively giddy over this stall-less shower. Upon first glance it looks as if this bathroom comes sans shower. But a second inspection reveals a rain fixture in the ceiling and hand-held fixtures attached to the wall. This open plan favors space over privacy. However, the whimsical set-up will definitely make finicky kids excited about bath time.
  
These options prove that there’s a little something for everyone on the market if you dare to think outside of the box. Because settling for a run-of-the-mill unit is so last year.
