Walk in Shower Tile Ideas
When planning your walk in shower design, there are several decisions that will make your plan an aesthetic and functional success.
Make your decorative tile the focal point.
If your budget will allow, tilling your entire shower with Living Walls Tile is a great option. Doing so creates an immersive experience, almost like stepping outside into a private bamboo thicket. However, if the entire shower is not possible, consider using decorative tile on only one wall, or part of one wall, and make that wall the focal point of your installation. Even one or two columns or rows of tile can transform the entire shower!
Choose Lighting that functions well and compliments your tile installation.
While ambient light from the room can often suffice, especially when a partially covered glass panel can be used, light sources specifically incorporated into the shower itself can add function and beauty to your walk in shower ideas. Skylights and tubes are a great way to illuminate your shower with natural light. The best artificial lighting solutions for making your decorative tile installation really shine, is to add oblique lighting to the wall directly above the tiles. This will illuminate the tiles with gentile glow which doesn't create highlights on glossy tile surfaces.
