Shower Lighting Lighting is an overlooked bathroom feature, but it’s among the most important. The best part of adding lighting to your shower area is that it can be inexpensive, When thinking about how and where to add lighting, consider which spots you want to highlight and what mood you want to set. For example, you might try a wash of light on a beautifully tiled wall. Some showerheads even have built-in LED lights.
Using tile is more expensive than painting, however, so if you’re on a budget either choose an iteration that doesn’t use a lot of it or just use paint. Make sure the proper additive is mixed in with your paint color in order to keep it from getting mildewy and if you’re using tile, look for stain-resistant grout (more expensive but worth the extra cost). White and off-white are the most popular bathroom color ideas and neutral colors also help make the space feel calm and fresh. Choosing a monochromatic color palette, where you base the whole color scheme off of one main color, is another popular option and will make the space feel bigger.
If you’re considering upgrading your shower, the decision not only will breathe new life into your bathroom but also will be a wise investment. According to Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value report, the average cost of a bathroom remodel is $16,000, with an average return on investment of 72.5 percent.
