4 fast fixes for a fabulous shower
(NC)—For many of us, the shower is an escape from reality, perhaps the only “me time” in the day. But if your current shower isn't living up to these relaxing expectations, it may be time for a facelift. Follow these four quick and easy fixes that will make an amazing improvement to the enjoyment of taking a shower.
Shower curtains may keep water contained, but they also have a tendency to make a shower feel small and cramped. An easy solution is to install a curved shower rod that gives a luxurious look while creating a more comfortable experience − adding up to 18 centimetres of elbow room. The double-curved shower rod (from Moen) can be used to separate the decorative curtain from the liner or act as a towel bar. Moen tells us the curved shower rods are available in brushed nickel, chrome and old world bronze finishes to blend beautifully with any décor.
Downsize and Organize
According to the National Association of Home Builders, the number of homes with five or more residents has increased in the last two years. To ensure your shower doesn't become overrun with shampoos and products, good organization is a must. An innovative solution is the Moen Home Care designer grab bar with shelf. It adds the storage of a shelf with the safety of a grab bar – all in a stylish design in the latest finishes.
Chance of Showers
A simple showerhead update can dramatically improve your showering experience. Here are several styles that will suit any need:
• Rainshowers- If you're looking for relaxing, full-body coverage, a rainshower is the right choice for you. These showerheads are often larger, allowing the user to receive all-over coverage rather than a concentrated spray.
• Handheld Showers- A handheld shower will bring the water flow directly to you, making it a versatile option.
• Standard Showerheads- With many standard collections offering multi-function spray settings, it's easy to create a personalized showering experience.
Hang It Up
The final step to a fabulous shower experience is to ensure you have a place nearby to hang a warm robe or towel, and adding a hook or bar outside the shower is a simple solution. Moen suggests the Parlor line, which coordinates with a variety of bath faucet styles. Parlor features a unique pullout robe hook, which can be used traditionally, or extended to hang multiple items.
By following these simple and inexpensive fixes, your shower can become an everyday retreat for relaxation and enjoyment. More information is available online at moen.ca.
