Exposed shower pipes are on track to become one of the year’s biggest bathroom trends – and it’s not hard to figure out why. Bathrooms, in general, are notoriously difficult to revamp – their cramped quarters and limited wall space makes most design ideas a nuisance – which is what makes exposed pipe systems an easy fix when it comes to refreshing your space. The entire pipe system, mounted on the wall of the shower, displays all the inner workings, lending your bathroom a stunning industrial look and unique personal touch. Now’s your chance to infuse your bathroom with a rugged edge by adding chrome, copper, pewter or brass exposed pipe to your shower or tub faucet.
This stunning brass exposed shower pipe system is giving us some serious bathroom envy. The industrial look pairs beautifully with the classic white and grey subway tiles.
Remember: black never goes out of style. A perfect example is the timeless design of this white and matte black bathroom, with a stunning standing shower as its show-stopper. The panelled glass doors are made even more chic by the addition of the stainless steel exposed shower pipe system.
Keep it Simple
Opting for an exposed shower pipe system doesn’t have to be as complex or grandiose as it sounds. Select a whimsical tile design to offset the simplicity of your shower pipes.
It might not be out in the open thanks to the shower curtain, but the chic brass exposed piping adds a pop of colour and sleekness to an otherwise pristine white-on-white bathroom.
You don’t need a traditional shower to install exposed pipes. Add them to your clawfoot soaker tub and recreate a spa retreat in the comfort of your own home. Find inspiration on how modern shower ideas can turn your bathroom into a masterpiece.

This custom-made walk-in shower no doubt saves plenty of time in the cleaning department (goodbye, grimy glass doors and browned curtains!), but it’s the chic addition of the exposed shower pipe that we love most.
Back to Nature
Give your bathroom a outdoorsy feel with the addition of wood-inspired tiles, summery shower curtains and, yes, exposed pipes that will hearken back to your days spent at summer camp – resorting to those rustic outdoor showers.
Soak it Up
Who said you even needed a full-blown shower to enjoy the myriad of benefits – both aesthetic and otherwise – of exposed pipes? Transform your tub faucet into a luxurious bathtub necessity, like this whimsical version that resembles an old-timey telephone.
