Scope out the location where you’ll install the shower
When planning for a shower installation, it’s important to first start with the space where it will be installed.
It’s important to make sure that you pick a shower design that is suitable for the space that you have to work with. You’ll also want to keep in mind moving parts like shower doors, and make sure that they won’t create spacing conflicts with other bathroom fixtures like cabinets, counters, toilets, towel racks, doorways, and anything else inside the bathroom.
Check out the shower products available
Next, it’s useful to understand what options are available out in the world of showers.
A quick and easy way to get an idea of what shower products are available is to hop online and check out the websites of home improvement suppliers and distributors.
If you have time, it’s also recommended to go check out shower products in person whenever possible. By actually seeing the physical product and interacting with it, you can get a better idea of what it will look like if it’s installed in your home.
Gather up examples of shower installations that you like
Beyond the product marketplace, it’s also a good idea to gather up examples of shower installations that you like based on previously completed shower projects.
Again, there are convenient resources online for this process, like Pinterest, Instagram, and other visually-based media sites.
As you browse examples of shower installations posted by others, keep in mind that not everything will be suitable for your needs or your property. Remember to keep in mind the size and style of your bathroom, as well as the style of your overall home.
It’s usually better to pick something compatible with what already exists, unless you’re planning to make significant changes to the style of your home.
Don’t forget to consider who will be using the shower
It’s always important to remember not to overlook who will actually be using the shower.
Larger folks will need more space, particularly if you’re also planning to include a bathtub as part of the installation.
Smaller people may prefer something more compact and space-saving.
If you’re not sure who will be using the shower longer-term, for example if you’re installing at a rental property, an average fit is usually safer to stick to. This also applies if you’re planning to sell the home in the next few years, or if it’s a possibility.
That said, if the bathroom is in a place where you know who will be using it longer-term, like a master bedroom for your own home, you may want to personalize it to the specific preferences of the users.
