The first place to start is deciding what style of shower is right for you. The type you decide will help set guidelines for the products you can choose from. These are some common configurations:
WALK-IN SHOWER Ideal for primary/master baths since they allow for body sprays, rainheads, a sit-down bench, or steam functionality. Also useful for people with mobility issues and generally the most popular choice for remodelers
DOUBLE SHOWER A type of walk-in shower that is made for two people to use at the same time. Perfect for large bathrooms and great for couples. These also have a stunning, symmetrical look that elevate the space.
OPEN SHOWER A type of walk-in shower with no boundary between the shower and the rest of the bathroom. Great for easy access when using a wheelchair or other mobility aids. Open showers can also include a half wall to keep spray from getting on the rest of the bathroom.
ENCLOSED SHOWER A type of walk-in shower that is fully enclosed, floor to ceiling, by shower doors. Enclosed showers prevent any splashes and sprays from escaping the shower to keep the bathroom clean. If you are looking to install a steam system, this is the configuration for you!
TUB/SHOWER COMBO If your home only has one full bath then a tub/shower combination is best since it is the most versatile and useful for any children at the house. Usually a combination shower will have both a showerhead and a tub spout and use just one valve trim with a diverter function either in the trim or on the tub spout. These are also great for guest or children’s bathrooms
