The Hot Bathroom Trend for 2015: Doorless Showers
If you have been planning to redesign your bathroom this year, you may already know that doorless showers are very much the “in” thing now. Many interior designers are recommending using natural stone to create a roomy and interesting new bathroom design that makes the shower completely open, rather than being a closed-off area that is kept separate from the rest of the room.
For stone fabricators, this offers plenty of opportunities in terms of the various tiles and surfaces they are able to offer, and demand for their services has spiked in recent years as more people look to move away from ceramics and porcelain in bathroom design.
The result is a bathroom that is more inviting and more cohesive than the traditional bathroom you may be used to seeing. A doorless shower makes the entire room feel much more open and welcoming, plus their custom-designed nature means the room will look exactly how you want it, rather than forcing you to compromise.
In terms of the design itself, there are a number of things you will need to consider. First, making use of natural stone not only allows for the creation of an attractive room, but it also serves a practical purpose as well. It is a strong material that will be able to stand up to the rigors of everyday use, particularly if the right sealant is used to prevent the spread of mildew.
Natural stone, such as travertine, is also quite easy to work with and can be made into both floor and wall tiles capable of suiting the design that you are looking for. This flexibility means the customization potential of the material is far beyond what can be offered by ceramic tiles, with a skilled fabricator able to create tiles of practically any size and shape with relative ease.
By working with an interior designer and an expert stone fabricator, you will be able to construct a bathroom that not only matches the current trends but is also capable of providing you with many years of service.
