Ideas for Ensuite Showers

Design August 9, 2013

Building a new home is an exciting time!  It is also a time when many decisions and choices need to be made in order to create the home of your dreams that you always envisioned.

In order to help our customers with their design choices, all Shane Homes and Creations by Shane Homes customers, receive complimentary assistance from one of our team of Interior Designers.  Our Interior Designers meet with our clients in our Expressions Design Studio and help with exterior and interior design choices.  This would include flooring, cabinets, paint colours, tile, trim, granite, and all the other items which make up a home.

Our Interior Designers are responsible for designing our showhomes throughout Calgary and Airdrie.  They are involved from the design selection phase – including picking out exterior siding and trim colours, coming up with a theme or style, choosing floor coverings, door styles, trim, material to be used for countertops, and so on and culminating in the decorating phase – including shopping for and setting up furniture and artwork and picking out all the finishing touches which make our showhomes really stand out.

For customers that don’t have a firm grasp of what they would like, our designers suggest our customers tour showhomes, look at design magazines and research ideas on the internet. is a great resource.

If you are building a new home and don’t have a clear vision of how you would like your ensuite shower to look, here are some ideas.  Please visit our Showhome Page to view the Design Selections used in our current showhomes.
