Frisco, TX (PRWEB) July 30, 2009
With all of the innovations and advanced features now available in the bathroom, planning a custom shower may seem daunting. Skanadario by Goodman Supply, the Frisco-based plumbing, hardware, and appliance showroom, has developed a customer-friendly, easy to use, custom shower planning guide to help homeowners and professionals through the process.
Since new home construction has slowed, many people are staying in their current homes and deciding to remodel. One of the main rooms that homeowners decide to update is the master bathroom. Savvy homeowners know they will get the best return on their investment from updating the bathroom. Plus, they get the benefit of using an updated, stylish, and more functional bathroom.
One of the primary jobs of a bathroom remodel is a shower upgrade. The primary reasons for shower upgrades are style and function. While some skip major enhancements to the master tub due to lack of perceived time or interest, everyone spends time (almost) daily in the shower, so any upgrades installed will get more use. Other reasons for shower upgrades include removal of the tub, enlarging the shower area, and accessibility. "Many now think of the master shower as a 'vertical spa' or 'power shower' because users can get a few minutes of relaxation every day instead of waiting for their next dip in the whirlpool bath," according to Skanadario Vice President Jeffrey Goodman. "With stylish options, popular decorative finishes, and great functionality, these showers provide terrific benefits to consumers," he adds. Customers love being able to use these features everyday, from the comfort of their own home.
A custom shower does not have to be complicated. Skanadario has developed an informative, easy-to-use guideline to follow in planning a custom shower with a few basic categories:
- Water Functions (rain heads, multifunction showerheads, waterfall showerheads, handshowers, body sprays)
- Technicals: water flow, controls, hot water, and drainage
- Extras: layout, electrical (steam units, lighting, chromatherapy), accessories, other design considerations (tile, glass)
"We're very excited about this new planning guide," exclaims Goodman. "It will be extremely helpful in planning and communicating with homeowners as they get excited about envisioning their new custom shower. Furthermore, the guide will also help us work with the designers, plumbers, builders, and other trades involved in the project."
After meticulous planning, selecting quality materials from knowledgeable suppliers, and choosing reputable contractors, homeowners will be ready to implement their plan and build their custom dream shower.
