A great way to bring additional value to your property is to pursue a well-planned Orinda shower installation. Since we’re one of the best teams around for Orinda shower installation services, we wanted to share some of our knowledge with customers like you to help you get the most from any shower installation project you plan to undertake.

Browse a large range of examples
With a project as large and impactful as a shower installation, it’s important not to make decisions too quickly.

Be sure to browse a large range of possible shower installation examples. There are a lot of free resources available via online media now, such as Pinterest and Instagram, which can allow you to review a huge number of examples in a relatively quick period of time.

Don’t just choose one example of what you like ‒ choose a variety of examples that includes different styles, and as you move through your project you can refine your choices to identify the examples that best fit your needs.

Plan for the space and location
Once you’ve found several examples of shower installations that you like, consider the space and location of where the shower will be installed.

For example, the space of a master bedroom bathroom and a guest room bathroom may be very different in terms of the space you have available for the installation.

Don’t only consider the space where the shower will be installed into, but also the surrounding space. If the shower is too big, it may prevent people from comfortably using the surrounding area within the room.

Think about who will be using the shower
It’s important to consider the needs and preferences of the people who will actually be using the shower the most.

If it’s a guest shower, maybe your guests won’t need a full bath tub, for example. However if it’s a master bathroom and the people in your household will want to take baths, they may have corresponding needs.

To provide another example, older people may need some additional fixtures installed to easily sit down and move around safely while showering.

Choose a quality home improvement plumber wisely
When you’re ready to get the project started, it’s important that you choose the plumber you work with wisely. Working with a subpar plumber can introduce unnecessary risk into your project, so it’s important to get off to the right start from the beginning.


First, make sure that your minimum baseline standard is to hire a fully licensed and insured plumber, like our team at Performance Plumbing. In general, we believe that it’s best to avoid freelancers from websites like Craigslist or general laborers who don’t have credentials, because there is no proof of professionalism nor insurance to protect you and your property.


Also, be sure to check the reputation of the plumber you work with. At Performance Plumbing, we’ve worked hard to establish one of the best customer satisfaction track records on websites like Yelp, so we think you should make your choice by using the same high level of standards.
