If you’re getting ready to start planning your Moraga shower installation, it’s important to know how to get off to the right start. To help you make sure your Moraga shower installation is as successful as possible, our team of home improvement plumbing experts has created this easy-to-learn set of best practices for your guidance.
Best Practice #1: Start with people first
Above all, it’s important to remember that the success of your shower installation project ultimately hinges upon whether or not people have a good experience while using the shower.
Since it’s best to start with people first, you should think about who will be using the shower. Will there be young children who will need a tub for bathing? Elderly people who need a place to rest or support bars? Large folks who may need a larger space?
If you’re unsure about who will be using the shower long-term, you may want to simply pick an average fit or standard design. For example, if the property is a rental and tenants could change, or if you plan to sell the property at some point, you may not want to over-specify the shower design.
However, you know who will be using the shower the most for many years to come, you may want to aim to please that person or people.
Best Practice #2: Study examples from past projects
Checking out examples of other shower installation projects that were successfully completed in the past is a great way to get an idea of what is possible and what you like.
We recommend our customers first hop on convenient online resources like Pinterest and Instagram to check out the latest trends and galleries of home improvement shower installation projects.
On these photo-driven platforms, you’ll be able to browse a large set of examples in a quick amount of time. As you’re browsing, start collecting a set of examples that you like the most, and whittle it down as you go to establish a small set of examples that you like best.
Best Practice #3: Study the market
After preparing examples of shower installations that you like, it’s usually a good idea to understand the products available to you on the market.
Some shower installation examples may not have readily available designs, or may have materials and products that add a lot of price to your project.
Checking out the products available is always a good idea if you want to get a real sense of what is probably in range with your budget and going to interact with products in person can help you get a good sense of what they will be like when actually using the shower.
Best Practice #4: Talk it over with an expert home improvement plumber
Once you’ve educated yourself on the basics of what your shower project will likely need, it’s a good idea to take those examples you found and the description of who will be using the shower and review this information with a well-qualified home improvement plumber, like our team members at Performance Plumbing.
