17 Luxurious Walk-In Shower Ideas That’ll Transform Any Bathroom Into a Spa

These creative selections will truly inspire you to make your place a soothing retreat.

Most luxury bathrooms now have a soaking tub, double vanity, bidet, and a magnificent walk-in shower. If you want to create a spa-like atmosphere, you must have a well-designed walk-in shower.

Luxurious Walk-In Shower Ideas

While bathrooms may be difficult to redesign (there are so many fixtures and materials to consider, not to mention all of the plumbing), a walk-in shower is definitely worth considering if you’re in the process of renovating. We’ve compiled a list of 17 stunning walk-in shower ideas from designers to help you get inspired.

Add a Subtle Theme

Designer Jennifer Kmet, principle designer of 12|eleven Design Co., incorporated her client’s desire for a southwestern-style house into the main bathroom by lining the walk-in shower with a Fireclay rust-brown tile with a coppery undertone. According to Kmet, “This was the perfect tile, because it has so much variation it’s handmade and has a slightly rustic appearance.”

Create Balance

Stephen and David St. Russel of Renovation Husbands chose to make their bathroom the ideal blend of historic and contemporary elegance. The pair said, “We selected more contemporary fixtures in a chrome finish to balance both.” Interestingly, the spouses chose dark tile for their walk-in shower ideas, and the rationale is again about balance. “We chose a dark shower floor tile to ground the space, and paired it with a few dark accents (light fixtures, mirror) outside of the shower to tie it all together.”

Make the Most of What You Have

Laura Tribbett, the main designer of Outline Interiors in Chicago, created this jewel-like walk-in shower. Tribbett claims the large steam shower was formerly a “poorly designed walk-in closet.” To create even more lemonade with the lemons she was given, she added quartz shelves to the structural column in the centre of the shower. The cherry on top: exquisite Bedrosians glazed ceramic tiles.

Add a Skylight

Nothing seems more luxury than bathing in a cubicle with a skylight, and we like this example by Garza Interiors. Maddie Moran, the project’s principal designer, claims the wet room was originally an inconvenient walk-in closet and that “clothing storage was relocated to an adjacent former ‘Monica Geller junk closet.'”

The stunning sage green ceramic tile complements the wood panelling, which (interesting fact!) was collected from high school and college gyms! Moran explains, “We are always concerned on developing a feeling—a vibe—and here we wanted the room to seem like a spa suite that existed at the crossroads of nature and art. Colour had a significant role. We wanted something natural, yet in a bold manner.”

Mix Up the Textures

Designers Jenna Choate-James and Mariana Ugarte of Interior Fox selected emerald green ceramic tiles from Porcelain Superstore for this client’s walk-in shower ideas. They add, “Our customers appreciated the terrazzo look [floor] tiles and believed the organic design contrasted well with the geometric wall tile. It also adds additional colour and visual texture to the environment!”

Make an Enclave

For a lovely walk-in shower, use a delicate blue, zellige tile throughout, as JHL Design did here with handmade clay tiles from Zia Tile. “We wanted the shower area to feel like an enveloping enclave of that beautiful zellige tile,” the architects said. The little Ann Sacks floor tile pattern serves to split up the room somewhat, and the glistening Watermark antique brass fittings offer a touch of refinement.

Be a Little Playful

Greens and blues are common in bathrooms, but cheerful yellow is uncommon, so we were happy to find this soft yellow bathroom created by Abbie Naber, chief designer of a. Naber Design. She lined the walk-in shower ideas with Zia Tile’s custom-colored cement tiles. Interestingly, she did not line the whole shower cubicle with the striped tile, which keeps the pattern from overpowering the area.

She explains, “I picked this tile design as a fun, young alternative to checkers, which are so popular these days. Because it is a children’s restroom, we wanted the area to be fun while still providing a place for children to grow into as they become older.

The stripe was the ideal choice for this. A stripe is classic, and the soft colour palette provided a subtle contrast choice.” And when asked why she picked yellow, she said, “We chose yellow for its uplifting and fun features. This was the ideal shade—not too vivid and brilliant, not too startling.”

Get Creative with Tiles

Watermelon-colored tiling will make an eye-catching walk-in shower! This bathroom has a strongly saturated pink ceramic tile from Mandarin Stone with a distinctive black pencil tile to break it up. The porcelain floor tile design provides a pleasing curved contrast to the linear tiles.

Go a Little Retro

We’re in a mauve mood after viewing this lovely bathroom by Austin-based design-build company Moontower. According to Senior Interior Designer Annie Mistak, the customer chose this “dusty mauve” Fireclay tile to provide a “spin on a 90s look in a modern way.” The sleek white floor tile illuminates and modernizes the area even further.

Honor Your Home’s History

Marie Flanigan of Marie Flanigan Interiors perfectly captures the traditional feel of this stunning bathroom. Flanigan emphasized the importance of preserving the ageless character and beauty of this pre-war New York City apartment. “The plumbing fittings are unlacquered brass, which will age and patina over time to reflect the building’s past. The black hexagon flooring is a subtle homage to the complex tile work of the pre-war period and looks great against the white marble surround.”

(And in case you’re wondering where the doors are, they were installed after the shot was taken! According to Flanigan, “We actually installed a gorgeous steel and glass shower door after photography took place, but loved getting the opportunity to show off the beautiful fixtures and natural light for this photograph.” )

Focus on the Details

Tyler Karu of Tyler Karu Design and Interiors created this relaxing refuge to reflect the home’s original design style. According to her, “We used a jewel-toned green cement tile as the field tile of the shower and did a simple stacked setting to complement the mid-century architecture.”

Interestingly, the jambs and curbs are all soapstone—small elements that provide a lovely contrast. According to Karu, “The natural material resonated with the wooded site, and we loved how the green tile brought out the subtle green undertone in the soapstone.”

Keep It Simple

This crisp, white bathroom drew our attention because of its simplicity; an all-white shower seems fresh and clean, which is exactly how you want to feel when you walk out of it! The tiles are really TileCloud’s glossy white ceramic, which makes them simple to clean and maintain. The bronze fixtures, also from TileCloud, provide warmth to the area.

TileCloud describes the all-white approach, stating, “The bathroom was quite a small space, so the all-white palette was a conscious design choice to make the space feel light, bright, and spacious.”

Combine the Shower and Tub

Who says you can’t have a walk-in shower and bathtub in the same space? Solstice Interiors demonstrates that it is totally possible—and very beautifully done. They blended two distinct tiles (the white ones from Bedrosians and the zellige tiles from Zia Tile) to create a texture-filled area. According to Katie Betyar, principle designer of Solstice Interiors, the customer had a strong desire to integrate a tub.

Betyar explains, “We experimented with a few alternative arrangement concepts, including a smaller standing shower and a tiny freestanding tub, but we always ended up sacrificing something else, like as a double vanity, a separate toilet area, or more built-in closet millwork in the bathroom. We chose this tiled-in tub inside the shower, almost like a mini-wet room, so that the customers could have the best of both worlds without sacrificing any of the space’s other critical features.”

Stick to Earth Tones

Lizzie Green of Popix Designs picked a fairly neutral palette for this bathroom and travertine as the wall tile (which we think will be popular again!). She explains, “I like travertine because it seems natural and organic. It is absolutely popular in design right now, but I believe any natural stone will always seem ageless to me.”

According to Green, the old shower was already in this area, but it had a shower curb and an untilled ceiling. She fixed everything and then put another layer of drywall to make the tile and drywall flat, resulting in a stunning, seamless transition.

Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark

Black shower tiles might be scary, but this walk-in shower, lined with black ceramic subway tiles from Tile Club, demonstrates that they can be done without dominating a room. It creates a sombre atmosphere, but the other features, such as the warm wood, arch curvature, and natural stone countertop, keep everything light and welcoming.

Embrace Color Multiple Ways

Green is now popular in bathrooms (if you haven’t noticed!), which might be attributed to the surge in biophilic design. We love how designer Corey Lohmann of Corey Lohmann Design made it the focal point of this bathroom without overpowering the area by incorporating colour into the tile work and paint. According to Lohmann, the porcelain wall tiles are from Fireclay, and the green paint colour is Farrow & Ball’s Pigeon.

According to the designer, all of the “architectural details should feel thoughtful and like they have been there forever.” She said that the floor tile (from Cle Tile) offered a tactile texture and pattern, “while keeping the overall vibe timeless and classic.”

Think Pink

Pink doesn’t necessarily have to seem infantile. Patrice Rios of Patrice Nichole Studio created this bathroom, which is painted in a taupe-y blush tone (Farrow & Ball’s Elephant’s Breath). Rios said, “The client wanted a calming space for a steam shower and a quiet bath.”

The bespoke cabinets by Patrice Nichole Studio is topped with a natural marble countertop and unlacquered brass hardware from J&L Hardware, enhancing the space even further. Architerra’s natural mosaic marble flooring creates a lovely pattern both within and outside the walk-in shower.
