Modern life can be busy and stressful, and if you're a parent, then things may seem especially overwhelming at times. It's important to create space and time in your daily routine to look after yourself and to recharge and relax. For many parents, creating an ensuite bathroom that feels like a haven is an important part of gaining that all important 'me time'.
Unlike larger family bathrooms, ensuites are often short on space. This means that to create a calm and uncluttered oasis, you'll need to use clever design and the right features. The limited space in ensuites usually means that there isn't room for a bathtub. This means that the shower will need to become the focal point and provide you with a luxurious and relaxing bathing experience.
Here are two key features that will help you to create the ultimate shower in your ensuite bathroom retreat.
1. An oversized shower with a frameless screen
If you can't lie back and soak in a bath, then ensuring your shower is as spacious as possible is the next best thing. Create a shower space that's as large as possible, even if it means opting for a slim-line toilet and sink to maximise the shower size.
Enclose your spacious shower with a sleek, frameless shower screen. This will enhance the shower space as the dominant feature and prevent the ensuite from feeling cluttered. Frameless shower screens will add to the feeling of opulence and are a modern yet timeless feature for your ensuite.
2. A rainwater shower head
Rainwater shower heads are a striking and decorative alternative to a standard shower head. Instead of being attached to the shower wall, they're positioned overhead and provide a decadent shower experience. They come in a variety of shapes and styles to suit your tastes and can even include different coloured lighting features if you want to take the glamourous feel even further.
If you'd like to be able to have a quick, functional shower as well as longer and more relaxing ones, then an extra shower head can also be included. This can be a standard shower head that can be tucked away neatly and unobtrusively when not in use or a model that has a hand-held attachment for more control of the water flow.
These two shower features will help to create a private and personal space in your ensuite that is a pleasure to spend time in. They will look great with any bathroom decor style, whether it's ultra-modern or a more a more traditional style.
