A shower set is a matching set of shower fixtures that can help you easily achieve a complete and cohesive shower installation. There are three main types
of shower sets to choose from: shower systems, shower panels, and clawfoot tub and shower fillers.
• A shower system is a complete set of standard shower fixtures, including the shower head, and its corresponding handle or handles. These can come in a
variety of styles from basic utilitarian designs to eco-friendly low-flow designs or rain shower heads. There are also a huge range of finishes to choose
from, with a whole spectrum of metals and polishes.
• Shower panels are a luxurious installation that can span up to 8 feet tall, integrating a number of jets and sprays into the wall of a shower to provide
a whole body water massage. Along with the shower head coming from above, and the body sprays from the side, a shower panel can also integrate a hand
shower attachment to give you even more control of the water flow. These installations can elevate any shower, turning it into a spa-like retreat.
• Clawfoot tub and shower fillers are hardware pieces that are intended to be used with freestanding tubs (of which clawfoot is a popular type). These
shower fixtures are mounted on a tub faucet rather than on the wall or ceiling, and feature a hand held shower attachment that comes in handy when rinsing
hair or bathing small children.
Whichever type of shower set you opt for, it can help to consider the fixture’s dimensions as well as the water flow rate that it uses, to ensure that you
have the right amount of space and pressure to accommodate the fixture. For more information on shower improvements or updates, check out our article on how to upgrade a shower.
