Giving your shower a facelift is a great remodeling project you can tackle. However, with a wide range of choices available, it can be difficult for you to find the right replacement for your current setup. To help you make an informed decision, consider this short buying guide from Total Bath Systems LuxStone™ of Connecticut, one of the leading shower replacement contractors in the area.
Shower Types to Choose From
Your choice of shower type depends on whether you have a wet or dry bathroom. Here’s a look at the four shower types:
• Cubicle – This shower type is complete with a tray, wall panels and doors that are ready to be installed inside your bathroom. It’s a practical choice that comes in a wide range of shapes and sizes to cater to all kinds of layout.
• Walk-In Shower – Combining practicality and style, the walk-in shower is open-fronted and flush with the floor. Common in wet bathrooms, it can be customized to suit any style you want.
• Closed Shower – This shower type has three walls, which can be either glass shower panels or bathroom walls. It has a door to stop the water from splashing out.
• Open Shower – Also known as the doorless shower, it can be installed anywhere in your bathroom. It has watertight and rigid shower panels that are easier to clean.
Shower Height and Positioning
For shower installation companies like ours, the shower’s height and positioning should also be considered together with its size and style. The position of the shower could change the whole room’s momentum, for better or worse. Before deciding on this, plumbing must be given a priority.
As for the height, it all boils down to your choice of the showerhead. Stylistically, a fixed showerhead looks good, but you’ll also have to consider who’s going to use it. Make sure the shower provides easy access, safety and comfort, especially for people with reduced mobility.
