SHOWER TRENDS

LUXURY WALK-IN: SHOWER TRENDS 2018

In today’s hustle-bustle world, most of us don’t have the time to take a luxurious bath all that often.  Homeowners today are looking at how to bring more luxury and comfort into their everyday needs. That being said, GI Construction in Las Vegas are finding more home renovation requests for bathroom remodeling to include removing the tub and building a luxury high-end walk-in shower. There is something unique about walk-in showers–not only are they appealing from an aesthetic standpoint, but there is the feeling that reminds us of our stay at a luxury hotel.  Just imagine being able to wake up each morning knowing you can step into your amazing walk-in shower and begin the day feeling energized and stress-free, ready to face the world! Now it is possible to have your own fabulous walk-in shower in the privacy and comfort of your own home. We have listed some of today’s top luxurious walk-in shower trends where capacious shower areas take center stage!  
Natural Light Shower
If you’ve ever taken a warm shower outside in the summer–perhaps at a resort poolside or beach–you know that the sensation of having the combination of sunlight embracing you while showering is exhilarating. Obviously this isn’t something we are able to do every day, and either is counting on perfect bikini weather. But you can attain this same luxurious experience every day by having your Las Vegas contractor design and build a luxury shower with natural lighting.  Nothing could be more soothing as well as more beautiful. Regardless of the dimensions, a window or two in a bathroom can make a huge difference in the overall feel of the room, and is especially beautiful if it is in the shower. For a natural light showering experience even more unique, you might consider a skylight for your shower room. The shower area will be saturated in natural light, displaying a heavenly effect!
Organic Shower
A walk-in shower doesn’t have to be designed with glass, tiles or marble to be luxurious. If you are someone that prefers organic natural beauty, you may consider using materials such as stone and wood to have a close-to-nature showering experience, while still maintaining the utmost spa-type luxury. Try a combination of materials such as stone or river stones on the floor and use wood as a decorative feature for your walls. It is best to go with tropical woods, like teak, ipe or massaranduba, which are naturally water resistant  You can be sure to wind down with pleasure in this soothing shower setting.
Frameless Shower
When it comes to bathroom remodeling, today’s homeowners are asking their general contractor to find ways to create more space. The frameless shower contributes to this goal, as it provides an open, airy feel, making the room feel larger. There is a seamless transition between shower and bathroom, and it is a wonderful way to show off tile work and other finishes. Keep in mind that the only option for shower glass isn’t just clear.  You can choose from a variety of different colors that fit into your bathroom theme. Frameless showers are less likely to contribute to mold and mildew issues because they do not collect water. Also, they are usually treated with Diamon Fusion to help prevent water spots, making them easier to keep clean.

Open Shower
Most of us have been used to either showers encased in glass or tub/shower with shower curtain. However with today’s high-end shower interior designs in Las Vegas, you will see more open showers with no encasing, thus contributing to making the room feel more spacious and allowing for more versatility and visual aesthetics. Open showers are also becoming more popular in bathrooms that need to be accessible to everyone, and are definitely the perfect solution for anyone who has a physical disability.
All-In-One Shower
Construction companies in Las Vegas are finding installing a bathtub in the shower area is a growing trend in bathroom remodeling. It looks great, and if you have young kids that like to play and splash, there’s certainly no worry about water damage or mess. Additionally, if your tub design has a solid flat surround, it can double as a shower bench. Having your tub inside the shower room also leaves more space outside the bathing/showering area to get more creative with your bathroom design.
Indoor/Outdoor Shower
This shower design gives you the best of both worlds. Imagine your shower having a full length pane of glass–not only letting you bathe in natural light, but allowing you to feel that you were outdoors under a waterfall!  If you  have the capability to design an area outside your house near the location of the bathroom, make a privately enclosed courtyard/garden that you can turn into your own paradise view. Install a rainshower and you’ve just been transported to the tropics. This showering experience would be amazing in the winter as well–imagine gazing out at a white winter wonderland while you are embraced by warm water as you bathe.
Rain Shower
Summon the rain at your fingertips by designing your shower area to include a rain shower.  This showering technology is designed to give you the ultimate showering experience of a natural rain–whether it be a gentle rainfall or summer storm. This technology and ingenuity simulates rainfall down to the very last drop. A rain-free center zone allows for easy breathing while you are being immersed in a calm gentle rainfall. You can change up the degree of waterflow to emulate a cloudburst of rain, designed to rinse soap and shampoo. When it comes to bathroom remodeling in Las Vegas, this is the ultimate showering design that washes away all worries and stress letting you basque in the tranquility of your own personal rain shower!
Steam Shower   
More and more homeowners are including a steam shower in their bathroom remodeling design. A steam shower is designed to release clouds of team before, during, or after your shower. Normally having this luxury would require a stay at a resort or spa, but now you can have your Las Vegas contractor design and install this indulgence in the privacy of your own home!  Having a steam shower benefits your skin and sinuses and leaves you feeling refreshed. When you’re done steaming, just rinse off and you’re ready to go!  

 

Oversize Walk-in Shower
Have you ever thought about doing yoga in your shower? Or how about just having a long bench to meditate and zen for awhile?  General contractors in Las Vegas are finding homeowners are requesting oversized walk-in showers to fit their bathroom remodeling needs. Oversized walk-in showers can also accommodate the tub (same as the “All-in-One” shower previously mentioned) as well as being the most accommodating for physically disabled.
GI Construction can help you with your walk-in shower bathroom renovation in Las Vegas. When you are ready to say goodbye to your tub and explore all the possibilities of an amazing walk-in shower in your home, we are just a phone call away to get things started!.

GI Construction - January 2024 I do not give 5 star ratings – As a process improvement professional, there is always room for improvement. 4 star is fabulous, but since this is an algorism I will deviate from my norm. In 2021 I had gone out to bid, only to find out that most construction and supply houses had prices that I found to be unacceptable. Products such as shower heads, faucets and cabinets were priced extremely high, they were also hard to get. So, we put this on hold and did smaller projects; outdoors, flooring, kitchen, etc. to show you we were getting introduced to construction projects. In October 2023, we went out to bid on renovating our 30-year-old, 2.5 bathrooms in Las Vegas. I reviewed many companies and found 3 that were reviewed well and had no issues with the board of contractors. After review of their costs and discussing how they would work the project, we decided on GI. They started the work when we had purchased all the materials that we needed to purchase, (shower heads, cabinets, basins, tile for the showers and floors, etc. They started their day at 7 am and worked to 3 PM. They take pride in the work and make sure it is done correctly. As an example, Jose (one of the tile guys) did the main bathroom shower and flooring. He worked his artistry in making it extremely beautiful. He would cut a piece for one of the benches, use it on top and take the other piece he just cut and place it in front, so it was a continuation. He did this on each of the benches and step over in the entrance. Just look closely at the main shower enclosure and you will see the quality. Problems yes! We were phasing in the project the main bathroom and ½ bath first, then the guest bathroom. After the main bathroom was completed, I turned on the hot water in the glass vessels we had picked out. I was waiting for the water in the shower to get warm. I turned around and saw the water was hot going into the vessel, so I turned it off – I thermal shocked the glass, it broke, fell to the floor, chipped the new tile and generally made things a mess! I called the team manager (Valentin) and told him what had happened, his response was “No problem - We’ll take care of it.” So, I reordered the glass vessels and got them re-installed. The tile I repaired with a chip kit I had used when we had redone the tile the prior year. The other issue we encountered was we lived in the home during the construction. Dust everywhere and constantly cleaning to keep the house livable. The bottom line to me is the quality of the people that are doing the work and their dedication to the customer’s complete satisfaction is one of the things that made this less arduous. The entire project took 7 weeks; 2 weeks delay due to our buying the wrong products and having to find replacement products. The GI team worked with us, guiding us to right suppliers and helping wherever they could. I will put pictures of GI Construction’s finished work and during the project. Hopefully you will be able to tell their quality. Just a side note: Valentin and his teams kept this project going Monday thru Friday. They don’t work on the weekends, but pulled a half day on Saturday a couple of times to meet my schedule. I can’t say enough of Valentin’s professionalism! The customer is always in the forefront of his mind, making them feel good, lowering their anxiety about the project.

We reached out to GI Construction to do some work for our bathroom remodel and could not be happier with our experience. They were professional from start to finish, always on time, answered any questions I had throughout the project, and just did a great job overall. During our planning stage Isaac really took his time to ensure that the work they were doing was going to be both functional and practical. Both he and Valentin wanted to make sure that they were giving us the best possible product and went over every possible design to help us choose the best one for our needs. In a time where good, trustworthy contractors are hard to find, GI Construction sets a standard that should be held across the industry. Thank you GI Construction for all your work, it was worth every penny!

We hired GI construction to take over a small bathroom remodel of a shower. The first contractor we hired did a horrible job, we lost money and had to terminate his services in the middle of tiling. Issac the owner and Valentin the project supervisor met with us and went over everything step by step giving us confidence that the nightmare construction would be turned around. So glad we chose GI construction, our walk in shower turned out beautifully! Long story short, don’t cheap out, go with a professional! My husband and I would use GI construction again. We love our new shower! Services performed: shower remodel

We really wanted to have our master bathroom reconfigured to accommodate a nice walk-in shower and have an old jetted tub removed. After contacting several companies with little to undesirable responses we contacted GI Construction. Isaac responded to our house the very next day and observed what we envisioned. He was vey knowledgeable and forthright in his assessment of our project. We contracted with GI Construction and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. Valentin and Roberto came to the house to establish a plan for construction and a timeline. Roberto was a true craftsman and insured every aspect of our construction was done with strict precision. The walk-in shower and associated construction was done in a timely manner and with ultimate concern for our pleasure and acceptance. If you are looking for a "professional contractor" to do your construction project look no further than GI Construction - you won't be disappointed. We would highly recommend them for any project you may encounter. Thank You GI Construction for providing us with a beautiful and functional master bath !!

Would highly recommend for their services. ** Thank you Isaac & Valentin for making our bathrooms look amazing!**

After searching and obtaining many bids from different construction companies, Isaac with GI Construction provided us with a low cost, complete and solid option that did not hide or leave open any unknown fees. There methods of a simple TI were perfect for our needs as well as saving us thousands on unneeded expenses. I'd personally recommend GI for any project small or big.

My project manager Valentin was so helpful and very responsive with any issues. Foreman Jorge went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with all the finish work and he and his crew stayed late on a Friday to finish the job. They even moved my very large headboard back in from the garage. All workers were professional and polite. I would definitely recommend this company and will be using in the future.

We worked with Isaac, the owner and Valentin, the project manager and their amazing crew. We couldn't be happier with the end project! We had a water leak from an upstairs tenant so the whole bathroom had to be redone and a wall in the bedroom on the other side plus we had some plumbing and wiring done as well. I would love to leave a picture but couldn't see where to add it.
