30+ Amazing Garden Structure Design Ideas

When most people think of gardens and gardening, they think of plants. However, there are many other things to consider when creating a garden, especially an ornamental garden. Structures and their placement in the garden is one such issue to think about. Garden structures are one of the components that turn a garden into an outdoor living space that can be enjoyed for many years to come.

Although space restrictions can limit what structures you can actually fit into your garden, many structures can be tailored to fit gardens of any size. Structures can serve various purposes in your garden from creating a defined outdoor living space, to acting as a gateway from one garden area to another, or acting as a support for plants.

It can be challenging to find the right combination of garden structures that not only provide shade, storage, and protection but also enhance your landscape. Fortunately, there are some wonderful options that can quickly solve this dilemma and transform your backyard into a stunning outdoor living space you’ll love.

Garden Pods

If you’re not familiar with garden pods, you can be forgiven. They’re a relatively new development in the world of garden structure ideas, and they come in a dazzling range of styles and designs. Essentially, a garden pod is an enclosed or semi-enclosed “room” that sits in your garden area, on a patio or next to a pergola or gazebo. They can be many different shapes and sizes, from small cubes to large rectangles. There are even spherical garden pods available for those who want a touch of the unusual.

Pods can provide posh seating for a small group, complete with plush seats and a table, or they can provide almost all the benefits of a full home. More expensive pods may have closing doors and windows, a sealed roof, and four full walls. Depending on where you source your pod, you can have it outfitted with built-in features like desks, corner windows, lighting and more.

As a note, these garden structure ideas can be very expensive, costing tens of thousands of pounds in some cases, so they’re definitely not for everyone. If your budget can’t take that sort of hit, but you still want at least a semi-private area in your garden, consider a curtained pergola instead.


Garden Structures Gazebos

Gazebos allow you to create a covered area away from your home. They can be small or large, plain or elaborate, but all of them allow you to do more with your garden area. In essence, a gazebo is nothing more than a roof with multiple supports (usually eight).

You’ll find quite a few premade options on the market, many of which combine a fabric or plasticised roof with metal uprights for support (and an underlying metal frame for the roof). Other options are much more elaborate, and are made from wood with shingled roofs. Most gazebos are octagonal in shape, as well.

Many of the more expensive options include a raised floor of wood, but this isn’t true for all of your options. Some of the simpler gazebo styles use your lawn as the floor. Because of that, you might want to use caution when erecting a gazebo. Will you use it enough that the soil becomes compacted and the grass dies? It may be a better option to install a gazebo with a brick or stone floor, or build one with a raised wooden floor.

Using a gazebo allows you to do anything you might like outside in the garden, without worries about the heat of direct sunlight or the threat of rain. They’re ideal for cooking out, but you can also add chairs to create an outdoor seating area. If you have a solid wood or metal structure above, supporting the roof, you can even hang a swing where you can relax with friends, family or just on your own.

When considering these garden structure ideas, you’ll need to think about the size of your yard, as this will impact the size of the gazebo. A large gazebo in a small open space will dwarf the yard, while a small gazebo in a large open area will be overwhelmed. Of course, your budget is also a consideration. The good news is that there’s an option available for just about any budget.


Garden Structures - Pergolas
Image Source: bylerbarns.com
garden structures - pergolas
Image Source: stevenwardhair.com

It can be easy to confuse pergolas with gazebos, even though they’re not all that similar. Where a gazebo is usually octagonal or round, a pergola is generally rectangular or square. Where a gazebo has a solid, domed roof, pergolas generally have a flat, open or latticed roof (ideal for covering with vining plants). Where gazebos generally have eight upright supports, pergolas usually have four, although this is not a firm rule.

Pergolas are sometimes less formal than gazebos, but that’s also just a generalisation. You can add any number of elements to these garden structures to create the atmosphere and environment that you want, ranging from stone surrounds on the uprights to outdoor curtains to provide shade and a sense of seclusion.

If you’re interested in adding a pergola to your garden, you’ll first want to think about the size you’ll need. These structures can be small or large, and can host groups ranging from small family gatherings to larger events, although they are not as spacious as pavilions (which are ideal for large outdoor events). As with gazebos, the size of your outdoor space will influence the size of the pergola.

You’ll also want to consider construction materials. Is wood the right choice? Would a mix of wood and stone or wood, stone and metal better reflect your overall sense of aesthetics? Your usage needs will also play a role. Do you want to build a pergola over an outdoor kitchen? If so, you’ll need room not only for food prep and cooking, but also for seating and eating.


Garden Structures - Arbor

An arbor is an open structure often built under trees. They are created to provide an enjoyable and shaded seating in nice weather. It can also be used as a divider in the garden or as a garden entrance. It may be free-standing or attached to another building or structure in the garden. It is often covered with vines.

A patio is an outdoor living area typically attached to the home. The word patio is of Spanish origin and means, backyard or back garden.

A swing surrounded by a lattice arbor says “summer relaxation” like nothing else. The airy structure visually anchors the deck. Lattice on top of an outdoor garden structure provides a great place to hang baskets of shade-loving plants, such as the ferns shown here.


Garden Structures - Green house

Garden Structures - Greenhouse

There’s no denying the utility of greenhouses, but they can also be beautiful additions to your yard, depending on the style and design that you choose. Of course, a greenhouse is about more than just adding visual appeal to your outdoor space. It will allow you to extend your growing season considerably, possibly even through the winter depending on your climate, and whether you invest in heating for your plants during the coldest parts of the year.

Greenhouses can range from small to massive, and can be cobbled together from scrap materials and built on your own, or can be purchased in kit form, or constructed by a professional. Perhaps the simplest option is a greenhouse made from PVC piping and plastic sheeting. This is also the most affordable, although probably the least aesthetically pleasing.

In addition to the overall design and materials used to construct the greenhouse, you’ll need to consider the interior. Will you be planting directly in the ground? Will you be using tables and containers? What about lighting and ventilation? Will you want heat during the winter to help you grow year-round? These are just a few of the questions you’ll need to answer before investing in a greenhouse, but no matter what you decide, these can be outstanding garden structure ideas.


Garden Structures - Arche
Image Source: diygarden.co.uk
Garden Structures - Arche
Image Source: forestgarden.co.uk

If you’re looking for garden structure ideas, let me recommend the use of arches. They can be large or small, bold or subdued, wood or metal (and other materials). They can be used in many different ways within your garden, as well.

An arch makes an excellent addition to the entryway to your garden, particularly if you have a more formal garden. However, they can also be used in less formal situations. Combine an arch with hedgerows or willow fencing for an elegant design, or go with wrought iron and climbing vines for something with a Victorian-esque feel.

You can even go international if you like. You can buy (or build) arches that reflect Asian themes, or that connect to the UK’s history and heritage. Add climbing and flowering vines to your arch in order to get a more natural feel, or leave it freestanding if you prefer.

You’re also not limited to the conventional “arched” shape, either. You’ll find rectangular designs in archways, as well as circular options, ovals and many more. Really, the sky’s the limit in terms of design and even use within your garden. They can also be combined with other garden structures, including pergolas and gazebos, to create a truly unique setting in your yard.


garden Structures - Hammocks

There’s nothing quite like swaying in a hammock while relaxing with a good book or a beverage, while the sun shines down and the breeze cools you. Not only are hammocks ideal for relaxation, but they can make eye-catching garden structure ideas. There’s a wealth of options out there, ranging from metal and wood framed hammocks that can accommodate one or two people, to attaching hammocks to the uprights of a pergola.

When you’re not using the hammocks, the pergola can be used for other things, including group seating during parties or events. If you really want to draw the eye, add a patio or deck beneath your hammock with a stylish roof overhead.

A spa can consist of just a hot tub placed in your back yard for relaxation and enjoyment, or it can contain the whole spa experience. It can be enclosed, covered, or open to the stars. Check out the at home spa guide if you want to incorporate more into your spa experience.


Garden Structures - Terrace

A terrace is a patio area that is attached to the house. It is typically raised above ground level and generally does not have a roof. (This is not addressing the issue of a sloped area that requires terracing for use and erosion prevention.)

Living Teepees

Garden Structures - Living Teepees

Whether you’re interested in using them to grow vining vegetables like cucumbers or pole beans, or you’re trying to add a bit of fun and whimsy to a children’s garden, living teepees are excellent garden structure ideas. They can cost very little, and can provide some pretty substantial benefits.

Really, these are nothing more than teepees made from bamboo (or a long-lasting hardwood). If you have bamboo growing at your home, you can harvest it, or you can buy it from a DIY store if you prefer. You’ll need several uprights, but the exact number (and length) will depend on how large you want the teepee to be, as well as how open the design is.

Start by roughing out where you’ll want the teepee. Put the bamboo poles together (bind the top loosely with twine if necessary) and then mark where each upright will sit. You can do this with a stone, a pile of sand, or by scoring the earth. Make sure you leave room for a doorway/entrance.

To ensure that the teepee is as stable as possible, you’ll need to dig a hole for each of the uprights. Put the pole in place, leaned to the appropriate angle, and then add rocks or soil to support it. Continue doing this until all the poles are in the ground. Now, you’ll need to connect them. Again, twine can work, but you might want to use something that will weather better (metal wire can work).

If you want a completely enclosed teepee (other than the doorway), you’ll need to interweave other sticks or branches horizontally between the vertical uprights. Then, choose what sort of vine you’ll grow. You have many options, from vegetables like cucumbers to gourds to flowering vines. Plant the seeds at the base of the uprights and water them in, then keep them watered as they grow. Eventually, the vines will climb the teepee, creating a secluded hideaway for your little ones, or an interesting structure for your yard.

I never have a good place to store my laundry baskets. Truthfully, I have a large pull out drawer under my bed that I hide my baskets in.

But thanks to this idea, you can easily have a space for your laundry baskets. They will be easily stored and easily accessible as well.

Laundry room ideas

3. Laundry Room Storage Peg Wall

This peg wall is a great way to organize all of the things that often clutter a laundry room. For instance, you could hang your broom and mop on this well.

Plus, you can add a nice little basket to store your clothes pins and other odds and ends items that find their way to the laundry room.

Laundry room ideas

4. The Washer Notes

This is a really neat idea that anyone can do. If you have a special care item in the wash that you don’t want to forget about, then you simply use a dry erase marker to write a reminder on the top of the machine.

Plus, you can actually purchase markers that have magnetic lids so they’ll stick directly to your washing machine. Pretty neat idea, huh?

Laundry room ideas

5. The Hanging Dryer

This laundry room layout is so cool, in my opinion. You have your washer on the floor and counter space for folding your clothes.

Plus, you have a nice laundry sink as well. Then you have this awesome little dryer that hangs above the washer so it doesn’t take up any extra space.

Laundry room ideas

6. The Pull-Out Drying Rack

Do you like to have a place to hang some of your clothes to dry? I know I have a few items that I prefer not to pop in the dryer if I can help it.

Well, with this neat pull out drawer you may be able to have a drying rack in a smaller laundry room and not have it take up much space.

Laundry room ideas

7. The Cat Hole

This idea is for all cat lovers out there. It would work in any room, but I store my litterbox in our laundry room. I have a couple of indoor cats that I love dearly, and I know they’d love if I added this to our home.

So you just cut a hole in the door, and you can even add brushing attachments so they feel like they are being rubbed/brushed as they go through the door.

Laundry room ideas

8. The Hidden Drawers

If you’d like to have a hidden storage space in your laundry room, then why not match the drawers to your cabinets?

Then you can put your clothes baskets in these drawers, or any other item that you don’t want cluttering your laundry room.

Laundry room ideas

9. Wall Mounted Lint Bin

I love this idea. I always have lint coming from my dryer, but I never have a convenient location to discard it.

So whether you are in a small laundry room and need a spot for lint that won’t take up space, or if you are someone that needs a place to store lint to compost. This could be a great option for you.

Laundry room ideas

10. Laundry Room Sign

This is another great design idea that I absolutely love. I think this little sign gives your laundry room a little something special.

Laundry room ideas

12. Laundry Stickers

Laundry room ideas

13. Hanger Storage

But with this neat little bar to hang under your cabinets, you will have a handy place to store hangers until you need them.

Laundry room ideas

14. The Compact Laundry Room

I really like this laundry room layout. My preference is to have a top loader washer, but you lose folding and hanging space in compact laundry rooms when you have a top loader.

But with this layout, you can have storage over your washer and dryer. As well as have a nice space to hang clothes as they come out of the dryer.

Laundry room ideas

15. Hanging Laundry Bags

These laundry bags are very becoming and also a great way to keep all of your laundries easily organized.

So if you’d like a DIY way to add a little flare to your laundry space while also helping it to function better, then this might be a good option for you.

Laundry room ideas

16. The Cozy Laundry Room

With this make-over, the laundry room takes on a cozy effect. It has a nice little light that adds some warmth to the room while it rests on the shelf.

But what I love the most about this design is that it is meant for top loaders. It is hard to always find a way to spruce up your laundry room when you don’t use front load washer/dryer sets.

Laundry room ideas

17. Keep the Change

Are you always finding loose change in your washer and dryer? If so, then you need a nice way to store it so it doesn’t end up everywhere.

Laundry room ideas

18. Missing Sock Wood Hanger

Laundry room ideas

19. The DIY Laundry Pedestal

Do you have a front loader washer/dryer set? If so, then you might want a way to bring them up to your level to save your back.

Well, don’t buy one of those store bought pedestals. Instead, make your own that can also double as a way to sort laundry.

Laundry room ideas

20. Hanger Storage Solution

If you don’t have cabinets in your laundry room, then the above-referenced storage technique for hangers probably won’t work for you.

But if you still need a neat way to store them, then you should consider this idea. You just slide the hangers onto the hooks, and they are out of the way until needed.

Laundry room ideas

21. The Pull-Out Ironing Board

Finding a good place to store an ironing board where it won’t take up a ton of room can sometimes be a struggle.

Then someone created this ingenious idea where the ironing board pulls in and out like a drawer. How awesome is that?

Laundry room ideas

22. The Wood Crate Ironing Station

I love the way this idea looks. We all have ironing boards to contend with. If you have the wall space to hang it, then why not hang a crate right above it?

Then you can have all of your ironing supplies in one easy place. Plus it adds some character to the room as well.

Laundry room ideas

23. The Super Organized Laundry Room

This laundry room looks pretty busy, yet organized simultaneously. It has just about everything you could possibly need.

So for those of you who prefer a more simple design for your laundry room, then you might want to consider a similar design as this one.

Laundry room ideas

25. The Sandwiched Shelf

This shelf is a really great way to utilize every ounce of space you have in your laundry room. It is a pull-out shelf that is sandwiched between the washer and dryer.

So as you can imagine this makes things much easier to access when washing clothes. It also doesn’t take up any extra space.

Laundry room ideas

26. The Farmhouse Laundry Sink

This is a little more elegant looking laundry room. Truthfully, it is probably out of my budget.

But if it isn’t for you, then you might want to consider it. It has a great amount of storage and a beautiful farmhouse style sink.

Laundry room ideas

27. The Laundry Room Door

For those of you that have a door to your laundry room, then you might like this as a nice addition to it.

Plus, as I mentioned earlier, no one in your family has any excuse to not help you with the laundry. You added a nice little sign to help them find their way to the laundry room.

Laundry room ideas

28. The Pet-Lovers Laundry Room

I love this laundry room. It is great for those with pets because it seems that the pet’s room always coincides with the laundry room.

So with this style, you have a stylish way of having a fully functional laundry room. But you also have ample amount of space for your pet.

Laundry room ideas

29. If You Don’t Have a Laundry Room

There are some people that literally do not have an actual laundry room in their house. I’m one of them. My laundry room is actually attached to my oversized master bathroom.

But for those that don’t even have that, this is a great way to fit it into your home without drawing a lot of attention to your washer/dryer set. And it’s functional.

Laundry room ideas

30. Retractable Clothes Line

Just because you have a smaller laundry area does not mean that you have to let go of certain things that you need to have a functional laundry room.

For instance, a space to dry your clothes. With this cool retractable clothes line, you just pull it out when needed, and put it up when you don’t need it.

Laundry room ideas

31. The Laundry Room Caddy

I am in love with this idea. If you have a tiny laundry room, then you might really want to consider this idea.

So it is your ironing board, folding table, and storage space all in one. How neat is that?

Laundry room ideas

32. DIY Ironing Board Holder

This is a great idea for storing your ironing board. It is frugal too. I actually purchased one of those ironing board caddies when I needed to hang mine on the wall.

Well, instead, find a couple of vintage looking wall hooks. Place them side by side and hang up your ironing board. She actually used it on the back of her door to hide the ironing board.

Laundry room ideas

33. The Crib Spring Hanging Rack

This is a great way to repurpose items that you might not be using any longer. I know I had a hard time figuring out what to do with my son’s crib when he was through with it.

But I would’ve never thought to use the spring as a drying rack. It looks pretty simple to configure and also very functional.

Laundry room ideas

34. The Dryer Box

If you haven’t noticed, the dryer always has to stick farther out from the wall because of the dryer vent.

Well, after you install this dryer box, the dryer can actually fit closer up to the wall which may help your room to function better.

Laundry room ideas

35. The Simple Storage Method

This is a very budget friendly way of keeping up with small items that often clutter up a laundry room.

These drying racks are ingenious. When they aren’t needed, they simply fold up onto the wall and are out of the way.

But when you need them, you can simply pull them down into position until your clothing is dry. Then you put them back.

Laundry room ideas

38. Laundry Room Stickers

These laundry room stickers are a great way to add a splash of your personality to your wash area.

Plus, I love how they speak the truth in a humorous manner. Basically, if you don’t wash clothes today, you could be in trouble tomorrow.

Laundry room ideas

39. Laundry Dispensers

Let’s say you have open shelving, and you don’t want a bunch of ugly bottles distracting from the rest of your charming décor.

35+ DIY Farmhouse Table Plans to Give a Rustic Feel

Farmhouse style decor is hot today. Even people who live in urban areas are decorating their house with this style. It’s because the farmhouse style will bring the warm feeling to any home.

If you want to get started with farmhouse decor, one of the easiest ways is with a farmhouse dining table.

1. The Bright Kitchen Table


When I first saw this table I immediately felt like it belonged in a room with lots of windows and fresh breezes blowing through.

And it is the solid wood top with the white legs that give this kitchen table a brighter feel. So if you’d like a farmhouse table that brings a breath of fresh air with it then this could be it.

This table doesn’t have the same finished look that many tables do. But if you are like me and love the rustic appeal then you’d probably adore this table.

And it appears to be extremely sturdy which is really important if you are planning on having many years of memories made around it. Or if you have a large family like I do.

5. Farmhouse Table With Bench


I love this table. It looks so welcoming and can hold quite a few people as well. To me, having a large kitchen table equates to having a welcome spot for many to come and gather.

So if you want this type of space in your home then consider this table. The bench makes for a comfortable space to eat or talk for hours.

6. The Rustic Farmhouse Table


This table is absolutely gorgeous. I love how they took mismatched chairs and placed them around it. It certainly gives this table even more character.

The design of this farmhouse table is one that even those with very little carpentry skills could master.

And it holds quite a few people as well. So if you desire a simple table with the farmhouse charm then consider this table.

8. The Wide Farmhouse Table


This farmhouse table is extra wide. To be honest, I think it would be an amazing table to have to serve Thanksgiving dinner on.

And you wouldn’t need a leaf or anything of the sort. You could literally fit a full spread on this giant table.

Build this table ›

9. The Gigantic Farmhouse Table


Farmhouse tables are supposed to be big. But this one absolutely takes the cake. From what I see, you could easily fit 10 people around this one table.

But obviously, this would take a larger kitchen or dining room to hold it. Unfortunately, I don’t have that kind of space. But if you do then go for this table. It’d be hard to outgrow.

Build this table ›

10. The Cherished Table


This table is so unique because of the different accents they added to it. But yet simple enough that it could be easily built.

So if you need a table that will be easy for you to build regardless of carpentry level. But still able to be dressed up to fit your unique style then consider this table.

11. The Double Bench Farmhouse Table


I love benches at tables. We actually have one at our kitchen table. And the reason is that it is so easy to slide in as many people as necessary.

But I also love how simple the design of this table is. It is classic and gorgeous. And could be made as modern or as rustic as your tastes desire.

Build this table ›

12. The Simple Farmhouse Table With Benches


This is another farmhouse table that I adore because of the seating and design. I love the design because of how simple it is.

And I could imagine it wouldn’t be too difficult to build. But I love the seating too because of the benches. It seems to have a welcoming feel to it.

13. The Modern Farmhouse Table


This is an extremely basic design for a farmhouse table. It would be very easy for almost anyone to build.

But they added a modern twist to a simple design with the seating. So you could make this table as rustic or modern as you preferred.

Build this table ›

14. The Simple White Farmhouse Table

This design is another that appears to be rather simple to build. The chairs are a little more complex. But with the right carpentry skills, you should be able to build them just fine.

However, this table stands out a little more than some of the others because of the wooden top and painted legs. So if you want a farmhouse table that might stand out a little extra then consider this design.

Build this table ›

15. The Simple Farm Table


This table is another one that is very basic. The table design itself looks super simple. And building the bench doesn’t appear that challenging either.

But the chairs could be purchased or built depending upon your carpentry skills. So if you’d like a table with plenty of seating and a simple design then check this one out.

Build this table ›

16. DIY Rustic Farmhouse Table


This table looks very easy to construct. Plus it comes with two different styles of legs. So you can choose which style suits your needs the most.

But if you are someone that is looking for something that is easier to build then this style would probably suit you. And it would be gorgeous in almost any style of home.

Build this table ›

17. Rustic Table With Wood Top


Let’s say you are someone like me and like things to look a little rustic and worn. Well, then you’ll probably like this table.

And I say that because it has a beautiful wood finished top. But the legs have a distressed look which often fits in well with the rustic, country charm.

Build this table ›

18. Basic Double Bench Farmhouse Table


This table is another design that looks easier to build. But it also has plenty of room for lots of guests too.

And with two benches you could always have room to squeeze in a few extra people if needed. So if you are looking for a simple table that will match any home interior tastes then this could be it.

Build this table ›

19. The Round Farm Table


This table is a little different from what most have in mind when they think of a farmhouse table. But it is still sturdy and nice to look at.

So if you don’t have a kitchen with room for a long rectangular table then you might want to consider this design. It still has farmhouse charm just in a different shape.

Shower Design Ideas That Can Put Your Bathroom Over The Top

Walk-in showers are elegant and functional for any bathroom. Whether you also have a bathtub or just this area, your décor will be functional and chic. It will also give your bathroom a modern appeal and it will give you the possibility to efficiently use the space you have available. Get creative or find some inspiration somewhere else. We have selected five designs to get you started.

1. Glass-enclosed shower.

Achieve a spa feeling look
Use glass in combination with light colors to create a bright and open design
Save space with a corner shower and use glass for a less invasive look
Glass-enclosed en-suite showers eliminate the barriers between the spaces
Use glass for the shower walls to let light filter through and to create an airy look
If you want to create a seamless transition between the shower area and the rest of the bathroom, transparent glass is the perfect materials to help you with that. In this example the shower is encased in floor-to-ceiling glass panels. Inside there’s a bench and small, practical shelves mounted on the wall. The oversized showerhead is an interesting statement element.

2. Light-filled shower.

Consider including a window in the shower to allow light inside
Attic walk in shower featuring natural light
A window in the bathroom, regardless of its dimensions, can make a huge difference. It’s an especially beautiful addition in the shower. The sensation that you get when you see and feel the light embrace you is unique. Of course, a skylight would be even better. The shower will be bathed in natural light and will have an almost divine look. The decorations you choose for this space can also make a big difference.

3. Shower and steam room in one space.

Make sure you include a bench or two for maximum comfort
Having the tub in the shower is an interesting idea that works great in this case
Modern steam shower with glass walls and a built-in bench
Same space for both!
A designer shower enclosures walk-in and a steam generator can be combined to create your very own steam room. It’s a simple way of making your own spa. The amenities are critical is this case. It would be wise to include a small window that can be opened when you use the shower alone to let the air circulate. You’ll be able to use this space both as a regular shower and a steam room and you can enjoy relaxing moments right there in your own home.

4. Small shower unit.

Small walk in shower featuring subway tiles
Walk-in showers are a great alternative to bathtubs in small bathrooms
If you have a small bathroom you can still have the walk-in shower you wanted without sacrificing too much space. It would simply be a smaller version of the ones presented previously. To avoid making the bathroom feel cramped you can opt for simple lines and materials such as glass that would ensure a seamless transition. In this case, the frameless shower door was a clever choice.

5. Private spa.

To create a spa-like feel in your bathroom you have to use the right materials and textures
Consider having a wooden shower floor and adding a chandelier for style
Mosaic tiles!

Modern trend – round shower.

Make the shower the focal point of the décor and let it stand out on its own
Perhaps one of the most important elements to take into consideration, the shape of the walk-in shower can be the detail that defines your whole design. Round showers tend to look more glamorous, especially if they’re encased in glass. However, a round shower is not ideal for small bathrooms.


An eclectic shower brings nature inside and takes advantage of its organic beauty
Perhaps you’d like to feel closer to nature when you’re taking a shower, in which case you should consider using materials like stone and wood. Try a combination of materials and make sure you use the contrasts to your advantage, to create a unique design. You could have stone or river stones on the floor and use wood as a decorative feature.


By eliminating the dividing walls, the bathrooms becomes more cohesive and harmonious
Maybe you’re used with showers being encased in glass or having curtains and dividing walls to separate them from the rest of the bathrooms. Although that’s the case in most homes, such features are not strictly necessary. You can also have an open shower and this will make the room feel more spacious.

Indoor-outdoor combo.

You should include similarities between the two showers, like these flowers for example
Consider placing the indoor and outdoor showers side by side. Allow them to communicate with each other through glass walls and create a connection between them. This way light get in and illuminates the indoor shower area and the outdoor one feels less out of place and more comfortable.

Luxury shower.

The shower floor looks like it’s covered with pennies and similar accents are used on the walls
It’s hard to say what makes a shower look luxurious. It’s a combination between the materials used, the finishes, the colors and the overall ambiance. A luxury walk-in shower has no visual defects. Everything it perfectly aligned and there’s always one element that puts it over the top.

Benefits of Walk-in showers

It’s not just the stylish design that makes walk-in showers so versatile and popular. There are numerous other benefits that they offer. For example:

Walk-in showers are both safer and easier to use. This makes them more user-friendly than tubs or regular showers, especially in the case of kids, elderly people or those with medical issues.

They are wheelchair-accessible, which allows them to stand out as superior compared to tubs or other types of showers.

Apart from being minimalist and elegant, they also offer extra space in the bathroom. Because of their simplicity and straight-forward design, they allow the room to be more airy and bright.

It’s also this simplicity that also makes walk-in showers easier to clean. Because they have fewer parts and areas where grime and dirt can accumulate, they reduce the risk of having mold in the corners or a look that’s not pure.

In addition, fewer parts in general means that there are fewer elements that can break and this makes walk-in shower particularly durable. This is also due to the fact that they are made of durable and think materials designed to make them safe to use.

Walk-in showers also offers versatility in terms of design. They can customized in numerous different ways and outfitted with lots of different features, types of doors, etc.

The general structure and design of a walk-in shower is created so that it traps vapors inside. This means there’s less potential damage which can be caused to the walls, especially if they’re made of wood. Also, mold is less likely to appear.
