Distinctive Showers

A shower is an enclosure, in which a person stands under a spray of water, to cleans one’s body. The character and shape of this enclosure can take on many different configurations and styles. Tile size, color and shape play an important role in the details, to fuse all components together. Accent tiles add interest to the floor and walls. Additional custom comforts range from niches for shampoo and soap, to built-in benches.

Placement of the following elements are critical, so when turning on the water, one is not under the shower head, as the water warms up. Choice of shower heads is another consideration: rain shower, adjustable water flows, handheld sprays, attached-wall-mounted bracket or adjustable bar, body sprays, controls and diverters.

Benches, sills, and threshold caps are typically made from a solid material, such as granite, caesarstone, silestone, or marble. This detail can coordinate with the vanity counter-top. The shower glass enclosure can be frameless or have a framed door/side panel. The finish of the frame can work with the other finishes in the bath.
