A French corner is an efficient yet fashionable shower style of two glass panels that come together to create a spacious center walk-through.

Traditionally, it has black grids and a sliding door instead of a swinging one, so it saves on even more floor space.

Flat folding shower

If your bathroom is really cramped, a flat-folding shower will make the most of your limited surface area.

It is also flexible because it has folding panels that can be retracted when the shower is not in use.

Even though this is a functional shower model, have bright wall colors like green to make the space pop.

Marble walls

Marble and light colors like white and cream look stunning together so for an effortlessly chic corner shower look, go for marble tiles on the wall and a light-wood color on the floor.

The combination will also make the shower look airy and open.

Black and white color blocking

For a bold, outstanding corner shower, color blocking is the way to go.

It entails picking a starkly different tile color for the shower area.

Choosing shades on opposite sides of the color wheel like black and white makes a striking statement.

Nature vibes

Even though you have a small corner shower, who said it can’t have a theme?

Incorporating an outdoor nature theme into the space is achievable with green-colored tiles and strategically placed décor pieces like potted plants by the shower.

Silver glass panels

Your shower’s glass panels also don’t have to be boring.

A shiny silver glass frame with silver horizontal tracks will draw in an onlooker’s eye and help elongate the shower making it appear roomy.

This corner shower design suits bathrooms with white or off-white color schemes.

An easy-to-incorporate color scheme in a small bathroom’s corner shower is monochrome or black and white.

All you need is white tiled walls and all-black fixtures, like black showerheads, shower valves, and door frames.

And why not even get a black loofah?

High gloss tiles

Another way of making your corner shower look chic is by using high gloss tiles.

They are shiny and reflective so they make the space appear vast and polished.

For maximum effect, get the tiles in white and install a small overhead shower light.

Dual sliding corner doors

Dual sliding corner doors save space since you slide them along the enclosure’s tracks as opposed to opening a door.

They also have a more modern and open feel and can be aesthetically pleasing when enhanced with a grid pattern.

Hexagon-shaped enclosure

Instead of the typical rectangular or square-shaped shower enclosure, opt for a hexagon shape.

It is more visually stimulating and convenient especially if your bathroom corner is closed in and oddly placed.

Half wall half glass shower sides

A half-wall, half-glass corner shower is a classic design that works well in small bathrooms with a little more wiggle room.

The partial barrier displays more of your shower aesthetic so choose an elegant tile design like marble and nice hardware like brushed nickel.

A vertical design

In showers with neutral color palettes like ivory and beige, adding a vertical accent band can do wonders.

It will break the monotony of plain shower walls and add color.

Go for a speckled design and have the same installed on your shower floor.

A horizontal accent

Alternatively, you can incorporate a horizontal band or accent.

If your shower head is fixed on the wall instead of the ceiling, contrast the plain tiles with a horizontal band behind the shower head.

Choose geometric shapes for a better wow factor.

Green and gold

Don’t be scared to color-coordinate your corner shower because it will make the area more appealing even if it is small.

Choose a main color background like deep jungle green for your wall tiles and accent it with beautiful gold hardware and fittings.

While the default finish for most shower enclosures is shiny, you can go out of the box and have a matte finish.

French corner showers can highlight velvety surfaces well because of their grid design, making them your best choice.

Wood print tiles

Wood is not recommended for shower walls because of the high humidity levels, but with wood print tiles, you can achieve this aesthetic.

These tiles will fit perfectly in your bathroom corner shower especially if you want a cabin wood look.

Circular enclosure

A trendy modern design for corner showers is circular-shaped enclosures.

They lack the harsh edges of other shower enclosure types and add a futuristic, unique touch to the entire bathroom space.

Go for a classic black-and-white theme to let the enclosure shape shine.
