There are a variety of ways to enclose and decorate a shower. The enclosure can be stencilled, painted or stained, or the enclosure itself can be the decoration.
As MasterShowerDoors.com points out, glass is the most common form of enclosure for a shower. While it may not be easily seen, glass enclosures can themselves be decorations simply because of the vast variety available, and how they themselves fit into the different styles of bathroom which exist.
One way of making a bathroom and shower unique is to use colors which aren’t often associated with bathrooms. Glass blocks in particular are good for this type of decoration, as they are available in different colors. As mentioned above, shower frames can also be done in different colors to the norm, which also works to bring some new color into the picture.
While the bathtub is obviously not the shower door, the way it is presented can have an effect on what the shower enclosure looks like. An unusually colored bathtub can draw the eyes, particularly if the rest of the bathroom is a color people normally associate with bathrooms, thus highlighting the shower enclosure. Unusually colored baths, as well as being interesting themselves, make the glass enclosures themselves seem fresh and interesting!
Forget everything you’ve been told about bathrooms needing to be white to open the space up (bathrooms are generally quite small) and bring light in. Paint it black, or red, or green. This will highlight the shower and the enclosure, particularly if they (in contrast to the previous point) are designed or painted in the way we would normally associate with bathrooms.
If you don’t want to make such a drastic change as having an entirely new shower enclosure, consider using stencils or decals to spruce things up a little. They can be anything you want – big\small, colorful\black and white – it’s entirely up to you!
