You can pair this design with a waterfall showerhead and a side glass pane. The glass wall panel can also be frosted to exude privacy when you are taking a bath. We can also install a recessed open cabinet above your shower adjustment knobs. It will serve as a storage compartment for your bathing cosmetics.

Doorless Shower Area

It is another shower style that supports easy access for the user. It can have a glass wall panel or the entry path is in between two waist-level concrete walls. We can include a foldable or permanent shower bench inside for more convenience.

Sauna Style Steam Showers

It is one of the luxurious shower designs that we can install for you. You get to enjoy a soothing steam bath at the comfort of your home. We will replace your small shower head with tall steam showers and a folding bench.

Industrial-Chic Showers

We can make use of the industrial looks of bolts and nuts in creating a cool and chic appeal in your budget shower remodel. Our designers and technicians will maintain a great balance with the use of industrial fixtures in achieving this shower remodeling theme.
