Have you ever been in a rush to prepare for the day, shower, and go to work, but your significant other is still using the bath? We’ve all been there! Waiting for him (or her!) to go out so that you can take your turn that you end up getting late or getting annoyed. The solution to this problem is a double showerhead.

If you are in the process of re-decorating your bathroom, installing a double showerhead is a good idea. The vital thing about choosing a double shower is to be sure that both you and your partner prefer shower ing to a bathtub, especially if you don’t have enough space in your bathroom to have two showers and a tub. If your bathroom is spacious enough, then this won’t be a problem.

Let’s start with defining what double bathroom showers are. From there, we’ll provide a selection of ideas you can choose from.

What Is A Double Shower Bathroom?

A double shower bathroom simply refers to an enclosure with two showerheads, plain and simple. It offers enough space for two people showering at the same time or whenever they feel like it. More than that, it can also add to the bathroom’s aesthetics. 

If you want your own his and her experience in the bathroom, it’s either you are just starting its construction or you would have to conduct a full renovation just to make it feasible.

The size of the bathroom is a priority with a double showerhead concept, considering you would have to integrate two fixtures and allow enough space to accommodate two people showering at the same time.

Designs and features of one double shower bathroom can differ from another one, depending on size, style, and preference.

The minimum requirement for a two person enclosure is 48 inches by 60 inches. A more spacious dual layout features a floor plan of 60 inches by 60 inches, or 72 inches by 72 inches for a more luxurious feel. Also consider features like benches, wall niches, and mood lighting to really elevate the design into a spa-like experience.

You can choose a ceiling showerhead with a handheld spray with multiple spray options and height and preference adjustments.  But you can also choose fixtures with a variety of spray intensities and hot and cold options. You would need to consider who will use the bathroom and their preferences. 

His and Her Shower Heads For Couples Tips

When designing double shower heads for couples, there is a variety of factors to take note of and elements to consider. Space and size are two factors that are incredibly important for this bathroom style. A bathtub is an element that you can still consider if you have enough space and budget for it. 

To help you with your renovation, though, here are some bathroom design tips you can try out.

1. Classic always goes a long way – Go for a classic and timeless look with shining marble flooring and mosaic border tile.

2. Try something different with a modern design – You can incorporate a modern and futuristic capsule design for the enclosure you’re building. 

3. Invest in a wet room – In case you can’t decide on a lounge or a stall, a bathroom wet room provides you with added functionality and both choices.

4. Design a narrow double shower – You can save space (which is very important with double showers) by choosing a narrow corridor compared to a large corner, where the enclosure will be installed.

5. Incorporate a bench – Add a built-in shower bench in the middle of the bathroom, for shaving, relaxation, and other rituals you may have without slipping risk.  

6. Install double doors – If you want privacy between the two showering stations, you can install shower doors on each side instead. You can also run the glass to the ceiling to seal the enclosure completely if you want to create a steam room.

7. Choose frosted glass – For more privacy and additional light, frosted glass provides a more airy sense and expansive space. See more types of glass shower doors here.

8. Try out a minimalist design – Enjoy the joy of minimal distraction, a monochrome palette, and straight edges in your room.

In answering whether having two showerheads is worth it or not, answer this question first, “Do you really need two showerheads in your bathroom?”
