Factory, Ltd First things first: The winner of the Rejuvenation $100 gift card giveaway is… Drumroll please… Jessie from Mix and Chic! Yay! We can’t wait to see what you pick, Jessie! Now, onto showers. We’ve reached that point in the remodel of the Beaufort house where all those last, little details that are oh, so important, are driving us crazy!
Sarah Richardson Case in point: The shower enclosures. Who knew there were so many options? Rods, doors, framed, frameless… And if you go with glass, what hardware to pick? How thick should the glass be?
Better Homes and Gardens
We’ve hemmed and hawed and debated. We love the simple, white mosaic and subway tile we picked for the showers. It looks perfect with the era of the house and is clean and fresh without being fussy. And we think the rain shower heads are fantastic! So that makes us think that maybe going with glass is the best idea…
But, on the other hand, Mom and I don’t object in the least to a rod with a beautiful curtain. Maybe something in a matelasse with a monogram? We adore the look of a white curtain with that crisp, seaside blue.
But, at the end of the day, frameless shower doors are undeniably more modern, and, in a place where you want to be able to focus on the view, the more glass the better! Especially in our upstairs master, one of the best parts about the bathroom is that it overlooks the water. Putting a glass shower door in there is a no brainer. It’s like bathing outdoors but without the mosquitoes!
John Maniscalco Architects I’m not sure we realized how much variation there could actually be in something as simple sounding as a glass shower enclosure. We were just thinking of something as simple as possible. You know, frameless glass, silver hinges, silver handle.
Did you have any idea you could have a shower door made with a rope handle? We didn’t! Isn’t that cute and coastal? It’s such a great departure from plain silver or brass.
And there’s definitely something to be said for incorporating that touch of black.
And the idea of a skylight in there is amazing! We love a shower with windows, but it’s a little tough to pull that off in a way that no one can see in while you see out!
Tim Barber Talk about fancy shower light! Now this is what we’re talking about… Imagine being able to open the window in your shower! This, obviously would only work if you have trees for neighbors, which definitely isn’t our situation. But it’s a good thought for a future farm shower!
McCaul Turner Design
We thought we had it all figured out when Will threw a curveball. Why not have an open concept like this with no door at all? So here’s our question for those of you with this cool design: Does it get kind of breezy in there? We are huge fans of garden seats and adore the idea of putting one in the shower. Sometimes you just need a little rest!
We’re feeling pretty good about the glass doors, so I guess it’s time to make some final decisions about bathroom cabinets. Don’t even get us started on the endless amount of options there… The natural wood of these looks nice and coastal.
We like these handles. Then you aren’t married to any metallics!
We’ve done pretty well so far being decisive keeping those change orders to a bare minimum. But this marble chevron floor… Oh, man! Why didn’t we think of that? We hope your weekend is as fun as this marble!
This is our kind of shower! Light, bright, simple and sparklingly clean! Which shower is your favorite?
Happy Friday, friends! We hope you all have a great start to your weekend!
