Pictures of walk-in showers


I have a bathroom now that has a regular tub.. I am going to be replacing it with a tiled walk-in shower. I have done alot of reading here and am going to be pouring my own floor and tiling the floor and walls of the walkin shower. I just wanderd if anyone had any pictures of what they have done.
I am looking for Tile color Ideas and some neat ideas where to put jets and other shower heads.
Any pictures are appreciated.
Thanks,
Brad

The only walk-in shower I've done is in a rental house we renovated. Everything else I've done is tub-surrounds.

I'm sure this isn't relevant to your situation, but it might get your creative juices flowing a bit. The house is an early 60s split level that had been trashed by a hoarder. I came across (literally) a whole truck load of vintage tile for free, so my wife & I started wondering about the possibilities. In the end, this "bathroom remodel" cost us about $150 - most of which was spent on the plumbing.

Again, this is not something a guy would want to do in a new house, or even a house of a different vintage. And it's not even like it's something awesome. Just some ideas...

Go buy yourself some remodeling magazine's.
There's whole magazines just for bathrooms.
Any home center has bathroom remodeling books.
Google "walk in shower pictures"

I have bought some and found things i like. I just thought if someone on here posted something I like or had ideas from first had experience it would benefit me more to be able to communicate with someone about what they like/dont like about theirs.

I know how to use google. How do you think I found this site, where I thought you were supposed to interact with people on the projects your working on or they have worked on to get input on what works and what doesn't. I can find several thousand pictures on google or yahoo. (I prefer yahoo). But what good does that do me when I cant ask questions about things I see?

you asked for pics/ideas. i gave you a ton. if you wait for a lot members here to post pics, you are going to be waiting a long time.

here is a great idea, perhaps(depends on where you live). go to a few granite shops. look are their remnants . ask how much it would cost to have them make you pieces, like the curb, seat, shelves. and how much that would cost. maybe i got lucky, but i got all of that for little over $100.

mine was on a slab. i used thinset in layers to build the slope from there. i needed to keep it as low as possible. turned out great.

also, look into KERDI, great stuff right there.

I just recently built a shower with multiple heads. One side of the stall is for normal showering and a normal head while the other side contains a bench seat with two shower heads. I used a 3 way low voltage heating zone valve to switch between the two. The switch just above the shower valve allows you to switch from one to the other.
