How to Choose the Right Shower
When deciding on a shower, your home's current shower set up will be a major factor. For instance, if your shower opening is in the corner, a corner-shower replacement is required, unless you plan on doing a full remodel. When replacing your shower or tub to shower conversion, the drain location of your new shower should match the existing plumbing. You have more flexibility if you're installing a shower in a new construction home. If you are planning for a steam shower with a rain shower system, you will need to include a water line to the generator, a steam line from the generator to the steam room and a drain line. Of course, all plumbing and electrical wiring should be performed by a qualified licensed plumber and electrician in accordance with your local codes.
Measure Your Shower Opening Correctly
Double check your dimensions before ordering a replacement. Measure the height, from the top of the shower to the bottom. Then, measure the depth and the width of the opening in a couple of places. Check out our showers buying guide for easy step-by-step instructions.
Choosing Shower Kits
Many homeowners prefer a shower kit, simply because it comes with the shower pan or base, along with the walls, doors. If you plan to do-it-yourself, many shower kits make it easy for you with snap-together installation and some include shower corner shower shelves for extra storage. Kits are available in several styles and designed to fit your existing space. Choose from rectangle-shaped, round, neo-angled or square. Depending on what you choose, the kit could be one large piece, or several pieces, and may require a shower pan liner. If you choose the one-piece option, just make sure you can get it through the front door or up the stairs.
Shower Door Options
There are several things to consider when it comes to shower doors. Glass will be your biggest decision. What kind you get depends on your style and how much privacy you require. You can choose frosted glass or clear, or something with a pattern. Shower doors can be framed, frameless shower doors or semi-framed. Like the name suggests, framed shower doors are typically supported by decorative metal available in different finishes. Shower doors can swing in or out and open on the left or right. You can also choose sliding doors or fixed shower doors.
Make It Your Own with Shower Accessories
Once you've chosen the shower style and door, it's time to accessorize. Let’s start with focal point of the shower – the head. The right massaging pulse or oxygenated shower head can really elevate your shower experience. Then, think about adding more function with shower accessories like, soap dishes and towel racks. Also, you may want to think about safety in your shower. Adding safety grab bars and shower benches are simple and smart ways to make your shower safer for children or elderly family members.
