Signs It’s Time to Schedule a Shower Replacement
Have you been putting off your shower replacement for a few months… or years? If you have experienced any of the following in your shower, it’s time to schedule your replacement as soon as possible.
Your Fixtures Are Broken
Have you noticed that your shower head is leaking, even when the water is turned off? Or maybe your water pressure isn’t what it used to be? Either way, these issues with your fixtures need to be addressed.
When you get a new shower, we’ll install a new shower head, faucet, handles, etc., so you have a better bathing experience.
Your Shower Is Cracked or Chipped
If you have a tile shower, it’s not uncommon for the material to crack or chip after years of use. This is not only an eyesore, but it can also be dangerous. If you’re not careful, you could cut your foot on a broken tile, which is painful.
Beyond that, water can get underneath broken tiles, which can lead to serious water damage that can be expensive to fix.
You No Longer Like the Way It Looks
Even if there’s nothing “wrong” with your shower, you might just be tired of the design or style. Whether you moved into your home and inherited someone else’s bathroom style or your tastes have changed since you picked out your shower, you might be ready for a refresh.
In that case, our experts at Top Tier Kitchens & Baths will help you create a beautiful new shower that perfectly matches your current aesthetic. We offer a wide variety of shower styles so you’re sure to find something you love.
Your Door No Longer Works Properly
A shower door helps to keep water from getting out onto the floor. If it no longer works correctly, you risk water damage forming outside your shower. Beyond that, your floor will be slippery, which can be a safety hazard.
When your door is leaking or failing to close properly, it’s a telltale sign that you need to replace your shower as soon as possible.
You See Mold Growing in Your Shower
Do you feel like your shower is impossible to keep clean? If you spot mold growing in your shower, it will almost always grow back, even after a thorough cleaning. That’s because it’s more than a cosmetic issue.
Mold growth in your shower is a sign of more serious water damage, so your best bet is to take out the old shower, remove the mold, fix the underlying issues, and install a new shower in its place.
Important Things to Consider Before Replacing Your Shower
Before you choose your replacement shower, there are a few important things to consider to ensure you make the right choice for your home and your family’s needs.
The first step is to set a budget that you’re comfortable spending on your new shower. This will help you narrow down the material you choose. Materials like marble and tile can quickly add up and before you know it, you’ll exceed your shower budget.
Here at Top Tier Kitchens & Baths, we install high-quality Jacuzzi® showers that are the perfect blend of luxury and affordability. We also offer convenient financing options so you can get the shower you want for a price that fits your budget.
Layout and Position
Another important thing to consider is where your new shower will go in your bathroom. For the easiest and most cost-effective project, you can install your new shower in the same place as your old one. If you want to move it to a different part of the room, you’ll need to account for plumbing changes as part of your budget.
You’ll also have to think about the layout of the shower. Where do you want the shower head to be? Do you want the fixtures to be under the shower head? Our expert installers will help you think about all of these little details so you get the shower of your dreams.
Along those same lines, take some time to think about how big you want your new shower to be. A larger shower can result in a spa-like experience, so the everyday task of showering feels more like a luxury.
However, if you have a small bathroom, you can still create a high-end space by installing a walk-in shower that maximizes the space you do have.
This is also a good time to think about how you want your shower to look. Take a look at some shower inspiration pictures to decide which designs you do and don’t like. Which colors are you drawn to? Do you like the look of a glass shower door? What style and color of fixtures do you want?
When you meet with us for your initial consultation, we are happy to show you different product samples and photos so you can get a better sense of all your design options.
Who Will Use the Shower
The final thing to consider before starting your shower replacement is how your shower will be used. If you’re replacing a shower in a bathroom that all of your children will share, then including adequate storage will be a top priority.
If you’re replacing the shower in your owner’s suite, on the other hand, creating a luxurious space may be your preference.
Don’t Forget About Safety
When you’re planning a shower replacement, it’s a good time to make updates now that will benefit you in the future. If you plan to stay in your home for the long term, we recommend adding safety features to your shower so it will be easier for you to use as you get older and your mobility changes.
Let’s take a closer look at some of the best ways to make your shower safer:
- Add grab bars: Installing secure grab bars in your shower can make it easier for you to climb in and out of your shower with support. These grab bars are incredibly strong and can support your weight to give you extra stability.
- Choose a low-entry option: To help prevent tripping when using your shower, we recommend installing a low-threshold shower that’s easy to step into.
- Install slip-resistant flooring: The wet floor of a shower poses a safety risk, especially for older adults. To help prevent a dangerous fall, choose slip-resistant flooring in your new shower.
- Add a comfortable seat: Some seniors find it difficult to stand the whole time they shower, so we offer comfortable shower seats for better accessibility. Consider adding one to your new shower so you’ll have it when needed.
- Include built-in storage: Without adequate storage in your shower, it can be easy to trip over bathing products that are left on the floor. To avoid this, opt for built-in storage and shelving in your new shower.
