Get inspired for your shower room

We’ve packed in some innovative, multi-functional and versatile shower room ideas; perfect for any renovation or brand new shower room design.

You can swirl different colour options, designs and essential additions below. Your mind should be brimming with ideas for your shower room by the time you’ve finished ogling. There’s a little something for every shape, size and style of shower room.

Small shower room idea

See, it is possible to fit everything you need into the smallest of spaces. Using white throughout the space makes the room feel bigger, as does the striking, large mirror. The compact toilet and sink help to free up floor space, reducing clunkiness.

That towel rail, it looks huge in this room!

Small ensuite shower room idea

Grey tiles to highlight the shower, juxtaposed to the white tiling for the remainder of the ensuite. It’s a really simple yet fresh look and feel.

The compact, built-in toilet and sink fits snug in the space below the mirror. Even better, it’s super easy to clean.

Walk in shower room idea

Combining the off-white and rustic wood effect floor and walls, this walk-in shower room oozes class.

Other smart features; hand towel rail under the sink, floating toilet and hidden cistern, bowl effect sink and shower temperature controls out of range of the shower head’s spray.

Narrow shower room idea

Don’t have the space for a shower room? Think again!

This narrow shower room idea shows a slim space and uses neutral colours to keep the room feeling open and light. The floating toilet and a wall mounted heater creates more floor space, allowing room for a beautiful corner shower unit.

Clever loft shower room idea

Embrace the slopes, beams and low ceilings!

Here the shower has been positioned in the highest part of the space. The compact toilet fits perfectly under the sloped roof. The natural colours and mirror helps to keep this room feeling light and spacious.

Open walk in shower room idea

The beautiful grey textured tiles add depth and help to break up the dazzling white décor.

The floating toilet creates more floor space and doesn’t detract from the show stopping walk in shower. Large panes of glass elevate the light to dance across the open room.

Luxurious shower room idea

Using dark tiles around the shower contrasts perfectly with the light grey walls and adds drama to the bathroom.

The long, dark grey fixtures give this room an air of sophistication and the bold, clean lines only serve to enhance the feeling of understated opulence.

Futuristic looking shower room idea

Think any modern futuristic movie and its shower scene – something like this comes to mind. A clearly segmented shower with tasteful black frames and a wood effect. Away from the shower cubicle, the floor and sink worktop possess a concrete/marble effect, with white tiled walls to really show off the cool shower and floor/worktop patterns.

Herringbone tiling in your shower room

This is an efficient looking wet room. No bulky bathtubs or shower enclosures are necessary, and a fully tiled room is easy to clean and maintain.

The main attraction though, check out the herringbone tiling in the shower.

Conceal your WC cistern

Check out the toilet, it looks super tidy right? The white cistern usually seen hanging off the back of your toilet can be a real eyesore. So don’t settle for it, handy tradespeople know how to conceal it.

Black and white never goes out of style

This is a timeless combination. Think yin and yang, seemingly opposite but work so well. We love the big black tiles here in the shower, a real statement. They scream quality.

Let’s face it, everyone looks down!

You might be weighing up what will be the centrepiece of your shower room. Why not the floor?

This kind of pattern is becoming increasingly popular with bathrooms, ensuites and shower rooms. And no wonder, it’s mesmerising.
