Whether you're doing a small or large bathroom remodel, you're likely planning on making some major changes to your bathroom shower. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to think of some creative and cost-effective ways to spruce up your shower stall, especially if there isn't anything blatantly wrong with it. Here are a few tips that will help you remodel your bathroom shower.

Shower Storage

If you've never remodeled your shower before, chances are it's really lacking in the storage department. Many homeowners regularly experience a difficult time looking for places to stash their body washes, soaps, and shampoos. Therefore, you should consider having between-the-studs wall niches installed. They will serve as a hidden storage for your bathroom shower.

To have this feature installed, you will have to get to the wall framing of the shower and build one. The depth will likely be limited to about a few inches, but that will likely be enough to store plenty of things. Ensure that the alcove is well-sealed to prevent mold from moisture. 


Your bathroom shower likely only has white tiles. One way you can transform the look of your shower is by purchasing tiles of unique colors, sizes, and textures. You can pick bathroom tiles that range from dazzling to demure in terms of appearance. If you'd like, you could even purchase metal, wood, or stone tiles.

Installing tiles are the best way to incorporate a fun, color pop into your bathroom. Of course, these tiles can be on the expensive side. Therefore, if you're on a budget, you should consider only installing a few of these tiles to serve as accents. In fact, if you choose very dazzling tiles for your bathroom, having white tiles to offset the decorative tiles.

Contrary to popular belief, too much of a good thing is not always good. You could also consider pure white grout to offset the colorful tiles of your shower. Fortunately, tiles are pretty easy to install, so you can likely install the tiles yourself if you're handy and willing to learn. This is especially true if you opt for mosaic tiles.

If you've never renovated a shower before, you may not know where to start. As you can see, there are many things to consider when it comes to a shower bathroom remodel. Just consider the suggestions listed above and you'll likely end up with a up-to-date shower that will make you proud without having to spend a fortune.
