When you decide to remodel your bathroom, one of the things you might want to consider is getting a new shower. There are several factors which will help you to narrow down your options, and with a careful examination of your home and lifestyle, you can find the perfect shower for your remodeled bathroom. The first thing that you need to do is to take some measurements of your bathroom. You will need to be sure that you will have enough room for whichever shower you choose. Your new shower should go into the same space as your current shower since it will have to be near the water pipes.
There are two main types of shower from which to choose: pre-fabricated and custom tile or stone showers that are built in place. Taking measurements you take will be especially important if you choose to purchase a pre-fabricated shower stall for your bathroom. These all in one units are typically made of fiberglass and are available in a variety of colors and styles. These are by far the cheapest and easiest shower type to install, but depending upon the size and design you choose, they could still be expensive. In order to cut your remodeling costs, you should find a simple pre-fab shower and install it yourself, but if money is not a factor, you might prefer a customize built shower.
Custom built showers are constructed in place. These are very expensive to have installed and it is best to hire a professional to do the job. That will ensure that the job is done correctly. By having a custom built in shower you can choose the tile or stone to match the rest of your bathroom. This can overcome the most common complaint about pre-fab showers that the fiberglass clashes with the rest of the bathroom design. When making your decision for a shower, you should do it as a part of your overall bathroom plan. Have an idea in mind of what you want your finished bathroom to look like, and choosing the right shower to match will be much easier.
