About Showers & Bathtubs

Showers and bathtubs are central elements of any full bath, and both installations have great features to offer. A bathtub is a luxurious place to relax and, depending on the design, can add a spa-like ambience to the room. From elegant freestanding designs to drop-in whirlpool tubs, there are baths that can suit almost any preference. If you’re looking to add a touch of luxury to your bathroom, though, and don’t care for baths, you may want to consider shower panels, steam showers or even a sauna. Shower panels and steam showers can be easily integrated into a standard-sized shower enclosure. Saunas might require a bit more room and a separate space, but are well worth the extra effort.

Standard showers, shower pans, shower enclosures, shower doors and shower door handles are all elements you can use to create the ideal showering experience. The shower pan is the waterproof base with a central hole for the drainage pipe, while the shower door and door handles are separate finishing components that give you the option of customizing the specific size, shape and style of the door. Of course, if you prefer a shower curtain over a door, we offer a great selection of those as well.

Generally, a shower door is used in an alcove shower setting, while an enclosure features the additional walls needed for a freestanding shower. A shower alcove may or may not require a pan as well, depending on the finish inside. A shower enclosure typically includes the walls, shower pan, door and necessary door hardware, all of which are coordinated and easily installed. These offer faster and simpler installation without the hassle of hunting down matching parts, but are less customizable in the tradeoff.
