39 Luxury Walk in Shower Tile Ideas That Will Inspire You

Walk in Shower Tile Ideas that will Inspire You - Sebring Services

A luxury walk-in shower creates a nice roomy feeling for your bathroom remodeling project. The lack of obstructions provides a seamless transition from the rest of the bathroom into the shower area. Not only is a walk in shower safer, especially for the elderly and children, it also works perfectly for those who desire a relaxing minimalist bathroom style.

Various Luxury Walk in Shower Design Options

There are various design options for your walk in shower. One of the most common variations comes in the form of a glass enclosure, with the glass helping create a bright and airy feeling. For an even lighter effect, consider adding a window to the shower, if it is possible. If not, try a skylight. If neither of these is possible, an all-glass enclosure would be better because it remains bright enough even with artificial lighting only.

You can also opt for walk in shower designs without doors. Take a look at our bathroom remodeling ideas, compiled from our previous projects. You could have the other walls solid, glass-only or a solid base with a glass top half. One thing to note about the doorless walk in shower is that it does not allow for much privacy, and this is generally true for all walk in showers. If privacy is not your priority (or is already provided by other means) then a walk in shower is perfect.

Each design comes with its own logistical and construction headaches on issues such as drainage. So make sure you consider these when choosing what style to go for.

Luxury Walk in Shower Floor and Wall Designs

Like any other bathroom, you also have to consider the floor and wall design. If you plan to have a solid wall as part of your walk in shower, use a neutral tile color that maintains the airiness of the bathroom. One area where you can create a unique style is the back wall, which you can use as the focus of your walk in shower and bathroom as a whole. For instance, a nice stone mosaic back wall draws your attention to it immediately you set foot into the shower.

As for the floor, ceramic, stone and glass tiles are popular because they are waterproof. You can either choose a neutral walk in shower tile design that keeps up with the overall minimalist style or go for a unique eye-catching design to complement an equally attention-commanding back wall.

Finally, consider the role accessories play in the overall style and feel of your walk in shower. Circular showerheads create a warm traditional feel while square rainfall showerheads give the bathroom a more futuristic feel. Other accessories to consider include a soap dish, grab bars, a corner seat and a spa-style bench for larger walk in showers.

    I won’t forget the first time that I got to use a walk-in shower that wasn’t a public pool shower. Let me say, it was a huge step-up. I, personally, hate cleaning shower curtains or glass doors, so the open, no-door format is my favorite. I think my favorite of your examples is the one you labeled ‘spacious shower.’

  2. Jonathan Mikson October 28, 2016 at 8:38 am

    Our bathroom looks exactly like the second picture. It took us over a month to completely remodel it but we are extremely satisfied with it. We found this idea from your blog and i came here to thank you for it!

    Nowadays, walk-in showers have become a symbol of modern bathrooms. Last month my neighbor also renovated their bathroom and installed a walk-in shower to get more space, by hiring the services of walk in bathtub, which was made of glass, without rails and sometimes with a frameless look. After the overall renovation of their bathroom, it looks elegant and stylish.

    From all of them, I like grey color shower tile. You know grey is not only for shower tile, I always try to give grey color to all of my home accessories. In this way, I keep my shower tile color grey. It looks glorious. Though all these shower tiles are attractive.

  6. Ruth Nero July 13, 2017 at 12:49 am

    These designs are really inspiring. Thanks a lot for posting.

    I love the turquoise tile design of the shower area. In my opinion, it just has that “home sweet home” feel to it. If I were to redesign my shower tile, I would definitely consider this one. Thanks.

    Hey good to see this useful article. You have covered five major points, which we have to consider while renovating our bathrooms. But most importantly we have to find the best products to renovate our bathroom.

    Wow! What a great way to bathe. While some of these would be downright impossible to clean, they’re all cool in their own way.

    I love the gray tile, open and airy designs. We had client just like this recently, but these are gorgeous!

  15. Amy Steiner May 20, 2018 at 12:58 pm

    What type of material would you suggest for a remodeling of a shower? Our water is very hard and the stone and glass in there is impossible to clean because of the water spots. Need something I can clean easier. Going to put up a half wall instead of the glass that the shower sprays hit.

    • Bryan Sebring May 21, 2018 at 8:26 am

      Hi Amy – you could always do a door-less shower and get rid of glass all together.

  16. Barry Adams June 14, 2018 at 12:51 pm

    Our contractor’s designer is telling us that a 4′ by 5′ 9″ remodeled shower area is “too small” and “too expensive” to create a walk in shower. We need a second opinion.

    • Bryan Sebring June 29, 2018 at 9:28 am

      Hi Barry,

      That certainly seems like a reasonable size, but without seeing it in context (ie the surrounding space), I would not be able to say whether it was matched with the size of the existing space. Good luck on your project!


  17. Andrew Agar September 27, 2018 at 8:49 am

    Wonderful! All of these showers are amazing!

  18. Barbara Grant October 26, 2018 at 7:49 am

    Really love the blue-green idea. Where can I get info on sourcing the tile – the colors are perfect for our beach cottage remodel?

    • Bryan Sebring November 1, 2018 at 9:04 am

      Hi Barbara, these glass tiles are by Walker Zanger!

  19. Susann November 3, 2018 at 6:24 pm

    I love the doorless design, alley type shower, and intend to build it into our new house next year. Especially the “Open Walk In” last picture. Of note are the high windows for natural light, double shower head, spacious shelving and controls that aren’t positioned directly under the shower head. Nothing like getting sprayed with freezing cold water when trying to turn on the shower in the morning. I intend to position my next shower controls in a more logical (and warmer) position – more toward the open doorway.

  20. Becca January 19, 2019 at 6:41 am

    OMG! the walk-in shower is a dream.
