Buy Shower

Your shower area is the centerpiece of your bathroom, and the right shower door is the key to getting the look you want. There are a few things to keep in mind when choosing the perfect shower door, along with some tips to follow for ordering and getting your new shower door installed.

Inline Doors: These doors fit in a shower that has a single straight opening and include bypass doors (meaning sliding doors), single swing doors, and any door and panel configuration without angled panels.

Panel Enclosures: For fans of simplicity, panel-style enclosures offer the purest form of entry. Assuming a strategically positioned shower head, and featuring no moving parts, panel enclosures keep the water in, while allowing for total freedom when entering.

Your home's current shower setup will be a major factor when deciding on a shower. For instance, if your shower opening is in the corner, a corner-shower replacement is required, unless you plan on doing a complete remodel. When replacing your shower with a tub to shower conversion, the drain location of your new shower should match the existing plumbing. You have more flexibility if you're installing a shower in a new construction home. Suppose you are planning for a steam shower with a rain shower system. In that case, you will need to include a water line to the generator, a steam line from the generator to the steam room, and a drain line. Of course, all plumbing and electrical wiring should be performed by a qualified licensed plumber and electrician in accordance with your local codes.

Double-check your dimensions before ordering a replacement. Measure the height from the top of the shower to the bottom. Then, measure the depth and the width of the opening in a couple of places. Check out our showers buying guide for easy step-by-step instructions.

Many homeowners prefer a shower kit simply because it comes with the shower pan or base and the walls and doors. If you plan to do it yourself, many shower kits make it easy with snap-together installation. Some include shower corner shelves for extra storage. Kits are available in several styles and are designed to fit your existing space. Choose from rectangle-shaped, round, neo-angled, or square. Depending on your choice, the kit could be one large piece or several pieces that may require a shower pan liner. If you choose the one-piece option, make sure you can get it through the front door or up the stairs.

There are several things to consider when it comes to shower doors. Glass will be your biggest decision. What kind you get depends on your style and how much privacy you require. You can choose frosted glass, clear glass, or something with a pattern. Shower doors can be framed and semi-framed; there are also frameless shower doors. As the name suggests, framed shower doors are typically supported by decorative metal available in different finishes. Shower doors can swing in or out and open on the left or right. You can also choose sliding doors or fixed shower doors.

Now is an excellent time to get started on that new shower project. From replacing the doors, upgrading to a new filtered shower head, or adding shower shelves, we have what you need to transform your bathroom into a functional yet relaxing space. Not into DIY? No problem, have our trusted, local service providers do the shower door installation for you. We have a variety of affordable shower options to fit any space and any budget.

All shower heads may seem the same, but it's important to choose one that provides the flow rate, stream settings, and aesthetics you want. Some shower heads offer a spa-like experience, while others are aimed at saving water. You'll get a different experience from both.

After testing 12 models with high flow rates, impressive stream settings, and practical designs, the Kohler Flipside proved the perfect combination of them all. The Flipside fits snugly on a half-inch shower arm and switches streams by flipping the head around the axis, as opposed to using a lever, switch, or handle.

There are four stream settings on the spray head: coverage, soft, circular, and massage. I was most impressed by how effective the flat stream was, compared to the circular spray patterns of most shower heads. Although there are fewer options than many other shower heads offer, the lack of extra levers or switches helped to give the Flipside a high-end, minimalist feel. The Flipside was also easy to rotate on its axis, even when my hands were soapy and slippery.

After using this shower head regularly for over six months and rotating it frequently, I didn't notice any structural issues with this functionality. It's also easy to clean, and any water spots easily rub off with a cleaner and soft towel. I feared that the Flipside's swiveling operation would negatively affect its performance, but flow testing revealed a 1.81 GPM flow rate, coming close to its 2.5 GPM limit.

The Hopopro is constructed of primarily ABS plastic, which unfortunately does give it somewhat of a plasticky look, as opposed to the shiny finish of more expensive models. Most of its nozzle heads are made of rubber though, which was a pleasant surprise at this price point. There are a few nozzles in the center of the unit that are plastic, but that's a fair trade-off for the price. If you're mostly interested in the high flow rate, low cost, and easy operation, this shower head will do the trick.

In order for a handheld shower head to be effective, it needs to work just as well in your hand as it does when mounted to the wall. The Waterpik High-Pressure Powerpulse 9-Spray does just that, thanks to a long handle that is easy to grip and maneuver and extend over your head when attached to the shower neck. The 4.5-inch diameter face also helps provide a wide, expansive spray.

This handheld design also makes the Powerpulse massage setting especially useful. The powerful setting focuses the water into a narrow, pulsating stream, allowing you to maneuver it close against any particularly sore body parts. The shower head also features eight other stream settings, like a fine mist and a "water-saving trickle."

The main drawback to the Waterpik is its many plastic components. This construction makes it more vulnerable to cracks and breakage if dropped, especially if your shower has hard tiles. That said, it does come with a lifetime guarantee.

If you have the budget, the Moen S6320 Velocity Two-Function Rainshower has a high-quality construction and practicality that make it worth the price. The Delta In2ition 5-Spray and Delta HydroRain Two-in-One 5-Spray are within the same price range, but their clunky designs and inconvenient operation couldn't compete with the Moen.

Installing the Moen wasn't as straightforward as other models I tested due to the short connection that attaches to the shower arm. This wasn't a huge deal, but it did take a few extra minutes to get the threads to catch. Once installed, the Moen looked great. Its extra-wide 8-inch face gives it a classic rain-shower look, and its 100 nozzles promise great functionality.

One of my favorite characteristics of the Moen was the movement of the adjustment lever. Unlike other models that have loud mechanical clicks when you switch from one setting to another, this lever smoothly and quietly transitions from a full-coverage mode to focused rinsing. The surprisingly strong overall feel of the water also helped to put the Moen on top over other high-end models. Its 1.85 GPM was one of the second-highest I tested, which is definitely needed for a wider shower head like this one to work effectively.

You may expect a water-saving shower head to deliver only a light sprinkle, but the High Sierra High-Efficiency has a great flow rate and dense, pressurized spray. It produced a 1.37 GPM flow rate during testing, which was impressive considering the High Sierra maxes out at 1.5 GPM.

Some people may find this model too small, especially in a spacious shower, and may prefer a larger option with a little more character, but the High Sierra is great for those who want a shower head that will produce the strongest stream while still conserving water. If your main priority is a high flow rate and you live in a state that allows 2.5 GPM products, you should probably choose a different model.

If your priority is complete spray coverage, this versatile shower head from Moen could be a great option. It features dual shower heads: a detachable option for handheld use and an extra-wide fixed unit, both of which can be used at the same time. Despite the large and bulky shape, it was surprisingly simple to install and took me about 30 seconds to twist into place and complete the hose connections.

The Moen Attract 26000: This basic handheld sprayer was a fine option in my testing, but it didn't have the versatility and spray coverage that the Moen Attract 26008 provided with its added rain shower. If you're not concerned with maximum coverage or the sheer number of spray settings, this handheld sprayer might be a perfect fit for you. Its magnetic cradle was especially strong, which is always a plus.

Kohler Moxie: The integrated Bluetooth speaker of the Kohler Moxie was easy to set up, fun to use, and sounded great. I even removed it from the cradle and used it as a standalone speaker in my office for a while. Unfortunately, the thin stream and relatively weak flow rate made this shower head more of a novelty than a legitimate contender.

Delta In2ition 5-Spray: A high-priced shower head should be flawless, but the Delta In2ition just didn't have the pressure to be used effectively, and its magnetic cradle was far too weak.

Handheld: These shower heads sit in a cradle and can be used as a fixed shower head if you like, but they also have a long, flexible hose that allows you to use them as a handheld unit.

I researched more than 30 shower heads based on reviews and tested 16. I also leaned on my experience as a residential carpenter for four years and consulted two experts: Nick Yahoodain, CEO of Advanced Builders and Contractors in Los Angeles, California, and Monica Higgins, a remodeling expert based in Southern California. 041b061a72
