Taking a couple's shower might sound spontaneous and romantic, but in reality can often be a cramped, slippery, and awkward affair in a layout designed for one. Whether you're looking to build an ergonomic space for spontaneous joint showers or dual showers are a practical necessity in a household where you both need to get ready for work at the same time, a double shower can be a practical primary bathroom luxury for those with the budget and floor space.
Unlike a shower with conventional, hand-held, and rainwater showerheads attached to the same water source, a double shower features two showerheads within close reach that are controlled separately so each person can adjust the water temperature and length of their shower to suit their own needs.
Check out these double shower ideas in a range of layouts, styles, sizes, and finishes.
