What Shower Do You Need?

Whether you’ve just moved into a new home and want to redo your bathroom, or you feel that your house is getting old and you want to remodel, one of the most important choices you can make is what kind of shower to have. It’s a selection that most people don’t think about until they’re faced with the huge variety of showers available on the market, and are unsure which features to look for or how to decide between different models. Here are several questions to ask yourself in order to figure out what shower you need:

What Shower Do You Need?

1. What size do I need?

Depending on your body type, you may want a larger shower with a taller head and plenty of room to move around, or a smaller one for those on the shorter side. Size is also important depending on how large your bathroom is – a small bathroom may only have room for a cubicle-like shower not much larger than the area taken up by a sink, while a bigger room can accommodate a more spacious shower with extra features such as a bench.

2. What style do I like?

This is a broad question, as there are many different categories that fall under “style” – for example, do you want a shower where the water falls vertically from above you, or more horizontally, from along the wall? Are you looking for a shower-bathtub combo, or just a stall? What kind of tiles would you like, or are you considering a more “natural” stone appearance? What kind of shower head and attachments appeal to you? And finally, how does the style you chose match with the overall aesthetic of your bathroom and the rest of your home?

3. What’s my budget?

The more features a shower has (and usually, the larger it is), the more expensive it will be. If you are looking for a shower that won’t break the bank, go for something simple – meaning a fiberglass stall that’s on the smaller side. If you have more money to spend, you can choose a tile or stone shower that can be a bit more spacious and even feature a unique shower head.
