By: manolok

Are you bent on home remodeling? Installing a shower stall in your bathroom can add worth and comfort to your home.

Why Shower Stalls?

No intricate engineering skill is needed to find out the technical aspects of setting up a shower.

Contemporary shower stalls are usually multi-sided, large sized enclosures. Various geometric shapes are imitated in their structures. Other than the standard square and rectangular models, you will have the option of choosing between a variety of shapes like triangular, pentagonal and hexagonal or any other shape. In fact, you can get them custom made to your specification to add a dash of style to your bathroom interior.

With space swelling in shower stalls, the scopes of addition of more and more accessories are also increasing. Today in your bathroom you can enjoy both leisurely bath in bathtub and thrilling shower bath by installing a shower stall integrated with a bathtub in your bathroom. There are also scopes for an array of additions.

You can install a spa like shower or a theme-based shower with special kits for a lavish bath. For a lush Jacuzzi bath install Jacuzzi kits by the bathtub wall. You can even have a warm steam shower by introducing a steam source along the ordinary showerhead. But you must be watchful because a steam shower should for all intents and purposes be watertight and enclosed.

You can also experiment with the showerheads. They come in multiple designs. In addition to standard 'out of the wall' showerhead, you have overhead showerheads, sidebar showerheads and even sliding showerheads. Overhead showers (affixed in the ceiling) allow you to stand directly below the down pouring water jet. Sidebar showerheads are slender rods running down the sides of the shower stalls. Together with an overhead showerhead, it makes for a 'total body' shower. Sliding showerheads that allow you to change the position of the showerhead vertically is ideal for families where heights vary.

Today's beautiful shower stalls geared with colored or etched glass finishes are sure to change the haggard look of your bathroom. But while remodeling or installing a new shower stall you must remember the following points.
