#1 Add Definition With Matte Black Fixtures

You can add a royal look to your space by adding an open shower in your existing bathroom.

This could be achieved by strategically placing the windows or adding glass walls to overlook a scenic outdoor area or garden.

#6 Install a Steam Bath 

Average Cost Estimation: $2,800 - $10,000

Adding a steam bath feature to your shower can create a spa-like experience in your home. Steam baths can provide relaxation and potential health benefits while also adding a touch of indulgence to your bathing routine.

#13. Add a Built-In Bench

Average Cost Estimation: $300 - $800

A tiled bench built right into the shower adds both style and function. It gives you a convenient place to sit for shaving legs or just unwinding under the soothing shower stream. Many homeowners opt for a built-in bench instead of a tub, as it is more space-saving. A built-in bench also provides a comfortable bathing experience for kids and the elderly. 

#14. Incorporate Nature With River Rocks  

Average Cost Estimation: $10 - $20 per square foot

Lining the shower floor or walls with smooth river rocks brings the calming essence of nature inside. The organic shapes and textures create a grounded, peaceful ambiance. You can add river rock patterned or printed tiles to the flooring and opt for a natural color for the walls. Keep everything balanced and strategic for a subtle yet luxurious transformation.

#15. Install a Shower Tower System

Average Cost Estimation: $50 - $2,000

A shower head tower is a vertical fixture with multiple shower heads at different heights, providing a spa-like shower experience. Shower towers take luxury to the next level. 

#16. Opt for a Doorless Entry

Average Cost Estimation: $1,000 - $15,000

Going doorless with a walk-in shower gives an open, airy feel that makes the space seem larger. The seamless entry also creates a modern, minimalist aesthetic. A luxury walk-in tub shower combo makes the shower space cozy, comfy, and luxurious.

#17. Add Storage Niches

Average Cost Estimation: $30 - $400

Recessed shelving carved directly into the shower walls offers smart storage while maintaining a sleek, uncluttered design for holding shampoo, soap, and other bath accessories.

How Much Does It Cost To Add Luxury Shower Space?

Adding a basic shower area to your bathroom can cost around $6,000. However, if you want to create a truly luxurious shower space, be prepared to spend more than $9,000. The total cost can climb even higher depending on the extras you choose to include.

For instance, if you want to add a chandelier to your shower area, the price can vary widely. You can find chandeliers ranging from $150 for a simple design all the way up to $2,500 or more for high-end, ornate ones from premium brands. Similarly, the overall cost of upgrading your shower will depend on the specific materials, fixtures, and features you select.

Opting for elegant touches like marble tiles, a frameless glass enclosure, a rainfall showerhead, or a built-in bench can quickly increase the budget. The type of finishes you choose, such as brushed gold or bronze, can also impact the final cost. If you want to go all out with extras like a steam shower, heated floors, or a separate soaking tub, be prepared to invest even more to achieve that spa-like experience at home.
