Fully Outfitted Shower

    Small but thoughtful elements make this shower stand out. A step between the shower and the rest of the bathroom serves as a barrier, keeping water away from the bathroom's wood floors. Inside the shower, both wall-mount and handheld showerheads provide the ultimate showering experience, and a small mirror is convenient for in-shower shaving.

Shower Room

    Consider borrowing space from an adjacent room to convert into a shower. This spacious shower is essentially its own room, tucked away from the rest of the bathroom. The black-and-white tile carries the vintage look, consistent with the shower's surroundings in a circa-1900 Southern Colonial home, and covers the shower walls, floor, and in-shower bench.

Seamless Transition

    Foregoing the standard shower door is only the first standout element in this stunning shower. The space is separated from the rest of the bathroom by floor-to-ceiling glass panels. Inside the shower, an oversize showerhead, bench seat, and pebble-inset flooring create an ideal spot for relaxing.

Stunning Small Shower

    This small-space shower packs in the same amenities and stylish details as its larger counterparts. The walk-in shower is closed off by a partial wall with curved corners, which reflects the bathroom's existing archway near the ceiling. Inside the shower, a high window fills the space with light while keeping the space private. Marble tiling inside the shower distinguishes the area from the rest of the bathroom but keeps with the room's color palette of soothing white, gray, and black.

Bathed in Light

    Showers tucked into dormers can feel cramped and cavelike, but adding a skylight can remedy the problem. This shower becomes a bright oasis, thanks to a generous skylight. Inside the shower, slate-blue glass tiles line the back wall and continue on the floor, giving the shower focal-point status. A textured stone tile was used on the sidewalls, as well as elsewhere in the bathroom, to unify the spaces.

Upgraded Simplicity

    For a walk-in shower on a dime, look for a basic fiberglass shower with built-in amenities. This simple shower provides a small seat and ledges for storing shower necessities. A metal-frame door also adds elegance to the basic shower.

Mixed Tile

    For a distinguishable look, combine different types of tile on shower walls and floors. This shower became a masterpiece with porcelain tiles of varying sizes covering the walls. Blue mosaic glass tiles line the shower floor and also appear as accents on the wall.

Shower and Steam Room

    A floor-to-ceiling shower enclosure and a hidden steam generator add "steam room" to the list of this shower's amenities. A transom window helps circulate air when just the shower is being used. Dual showerheads and green subway tile complete the shower's spa-like vibe.

In the Details

    Small details make this shower a standout space. Two showerheads placed higher and lower on the wall accommodate bathers of different heights. The intricately planned tiles create a visually stunning mosaic along the walls, floor, and bench. To keep the space from looking too busy, tiles in the same color -- but different sizes -- were applied to the floor and lower portion of the walls.

Separate but Together

    Limiting separation between this shower and the rest of the bathroom is a unique twist on the basic shower. The seamless transition also eliminated the raised step into the shower, a smart move to prevent tripping.

Clear View

    This small shower is kept from feeling cramped, thanks to its frameless shower door and glass enclosure. Inside, white subway tile contributes to the sense of spaciousness.

Spacious Shower

    If you prefer to have just a shower in your bathroom, opt to eliminate the tub altogether and fill the space with a larger shower. This tub-size shower offers plenty of bathing space, plus a bench seat and small niches for bath necessities. A larger shower also provides room for dual showerheads, such as the wall-mount and handheld showerheads in this space.

Corner Shower

    Make the most of an awkward bathroom corner with a slender shower stall. This small shower was fitted into a bathroom corner and feels more spacious than it small size suggests, thanks to the glass enclosure, which lets in plenty of light. Decorative tile and chrome fixtures give the petite space panache.

Slate Bathroom Shower

    Stunning ragged-cut slate is the focal point of this walk-in shower. The shower's glass walls provide unobstructed views of the natural stone texture, and the adjacent sunken tub is framed with wood. Plank floors finish the area. Natural elements, such as rock and wood, contrast with the clean lines of the tub surround, the shower enclosure, and skylights.

Light and Bright Walk-In Shower

    An oversize steam shower with a clear-glass enclosure and an overhead rain rain showerhead brings the spa home. The minimal glass frame and white subway tiles add a taste of contemporary style to the bath. The shower's sleek lines contrast with soft elements such as a Roman shade, a vanity skirt, and a vase of wild flowers. Clean, white surfaces sparkle with light pouring in through the large window.

Shower with Tile Artwork

    A ceiling-mount showerhead rains cooling water on bathers after a steam shower. Black fixtures stand out against the neutral tiles and Tile laid on the diagonal creates an eye-catching pattern on the wall in the steam shower. A horizontal row of mosaic tile adds contrast. A ladder leaning against the wall serves as an interesting towel rack.

Private Getaway

    An enclosed shower can become a private getaway, even in a crowded home. An in-shower bench pulls double duty as storage and seating. Hints of gray and blue in the white shower tile complement the bathroom's wall color. Natural variations in the tile such as these add visual interest and personality.

Vintage-Style Shower

    Intricate accent tiles and a stained-glass window add Victorian spirit to this shower, but the bench and handheld showerhead provide modern comfort. Similarly, the shower boasts a contemporary glass door that shows off vintage-caliber tile. A corner shelf serves as storage for shower Dark grout balances the white tiles. Varying sizes of tiles -- both on the wall and the floor -- add detail and interest.

Small and Elegant Shower Enclosure

    Although small, this shower stands up to its larger counterparts. Three showerheads crown the compact space -- a traditional showerhead, a rain showerhead, and a handheld unit. A thermostatic valve maintains a steady temperature for the rain showerhead and handheld unit. Blue and white tiles provide a serene color palette for the shower and complement the colors in the rest of the bathroom. Traditional white moldings and silver accents add elegance.

Attic Bathroom Shower

    The corner shower, decked out in white subway tiles, fits neatly into eave space. A bench set under the lower part of the sloping ceiling provides a spot for relaxation. The traditional wall-mount showerhead was replaced with a larger ceiling-mount version. A handheld showerhead rounds out the glass-enclosed retreat.

Spa-Like Bathroom Shower

    This clear-glass shower enclosure is equipped with a limestone bench and multiple body sprays. A large window floods the shower with natural light. A border of black tiles divides the white tiles and brown mosaic tiles, breaking up the wall space. A wall niche and mounted baskets provide storage for pampering products.
