With marble, it can easily be 20K if done up nice.

$87K












About $4-7K

I need one of those.  I'm getting tired of climbing that ladder to get into the shower.

Aprox size of shower, what type of door, how many jets and did it have te rain shower system, also heated floor in the rest of te bathroom, will you pay a contractor or will you get your flippers dirty and do it DIY ?

6-10 than depending of course on the details. Less if they did the work themselves.

wtf? are cold towels a problem? ive never heard of this before?

That's a must in my dream home. Walk in shower, no doors or glass. Fuck that stuff, that breaks first or gets nasty.

Would be all tiled, however someone mentioned marble. Hmmmm, I'd have to look into that. Probably not but still interesting.

I'm trying to figure out how a bench is useful, maybe some shower sex or just drinking beer for an hour in the shower. I'm kinda digging that idea now.

Last house I lived in I used cultured marble for cost savings and ease of installation, about 4-5 grand total.



If you are very thrifty, do a lot of the work yourself, and skimp on materials even more than I did you could probably do it for less.  Start getting extravagant and there really is no upper limit to the cost.



The glass doors I really wanted to use would have been about 5K just in and of itself.  I compromised by going with a Kohler "frameless" (which wasn't actually frameless, true framless glass shower doors are stupid expensive) that was IIRC around $500.





Warning:  When you have a shower that can fit 4-6 comfortably with showerheads on both sides, people are going to assume you are a kinkster.  It just goes with the territory.  Have a good sense of humor about the comments you are bound to receive.

Heated towel rack dries and warms the towels.  Very popular in northern Europe and areas with humidity problems.  .

5600 ish  for the whole thing assuming your not in the big apple. That's also assuming you did the demolition to a point.  Heated tiles on the rest of the floor in the bathroom will run about a extra 600 if electric and already redoing the tile. Rain shower system is just like it sounds, heavy or light rain from the ceiling. This ofcourse depending on if any other issues were found.

So the Mrs can sit and shave her legs.



I also started clipping my toenails in there.



Also, sometimes when you are really, really drunk, It's nice to just sit down under hot running water.

If you do some of the work 10K in nice materials

If a skilled guy comes in you're looking at 20 K easy

I remember going into Home Depot Expo a few years ago and seeing showers like this for around 20K.  They had some uber expensive stuff in that place.

The HD Expo by me is now closed, victim of the economy I guess.

I didn't think about shaving legs. Any future Mrs can go shave her legs in the spare bathroom. Not in my shower! Actually, she better laser that shit off.

Heathen

Warm towels, warm floor are a must, get with this or go join the troglodytes  



Seriously, the towels are nice but a warm bathroom floor is really nice to walk on in mid winter

Hell with the right design, the toilet can be IN the shower. Plot Twist: The entire bathroom is one giant shower, with multiple spigots that comes out of the ceiling like a rotating disco ball.
Link Posted: 9/2/2013 3:41:05 PM EDT
2500 to 3 grand, depending on the size you need. (Let's say 4X6)

Now if you need a "room", all bets are off.

Is it just the bar that gets warm or does it blow warm air down the towel? This is something I may be interested it.

Get the built-in seat. You won't regret it. You'll think up uses for it. Trust me on this.

Three years ago we had a bathtub replaced with a fiberglass walk-in shower. The additional price of the seat was negligible. We had several grab bars added because of our age. Turnkey installation was about $5k. If your tub is more than a few years old, be prepared for a shock when you turn on the shower. The force and flow is nowhere near what we were used to, thanks to .gov regulations.

You may want to strongly consider using an on demand water heater for the shower also if you plan on spending any length of time in it with all the shower heads running.

The towel heaters are crazy expensive by themselves.

Heated floor is a must have though.

That's pretty sweet.

Link Posted: 9/2/2013 4:16:36 PM EDT
There are a lot if variables; type of tile, fixtures, glass work, extras like the towel rack you mentioned. We just finished building and our tile cost was included in the bathroom tile so I don't know the break out. I do know the glass work alone was a few grand for ours and we used natural travertine marble tile so it jacked the price up.   Some of the extras though are less than you think, we added heated floors and it was only like an extra $1200. I could easily see spending $5-10k.



I do have an octopus drain though
