You are looking into installing a new shower setup and you come across this terminology for shower valves; pressure balance, thermostatic, shared, and non-shared...honestly it can be a tad confusing.
Since the start of the pandemic in 2020, there have been obviously major shifts, disruptions, and changes for every industry. Specifically in the kitchen and bathroom fixtures sector, we have seen heightened consumer demand for quality products for remodels.
With housing remodels, especially in kitchen and bathrooms, and the country's home prices at an all-time high, this need for products isn't losing any steam. And we don't anticipate this to slow down anytime soon.
As stated in the National Kitchen and Bath, the "trend is likely owing to quick-fix, pandemic-driven DIY projects running their course and being replaced by serious makeovers to accommodate new lifestyles." - CEO Corner: KBMI Sets New High Mark. By Bill Darcy, NKBA CEO
Whether designing or re-evaluating a new bathroom project, the task of selecting fixtures can initially seem pretty overwhelming. With the demand for remodels continuing to increase in 2021, how do I start looking for fixtures online?
- How much money should I spend, what's the average cost of remodeling a bathroom?
- Should I buy from a showroom directly or buy online?
- Can I trust buying bathroom fixtures online without seeing them?
Shower fixtures serve an important role in our everyday routine. They can either be our friends as they function to help us relax and unwind at the end of the day. Or they could be a constant reminder that we need to take action to update their poor water flow, slime buildup, and outdated appearance.
Making bathroom fixtures stylish and readily available means making sure the workhorse components, aka the shower valves, are doing their job distributing water correctly so you can experience an effective and most importantly a relaxing shower.
How to make your shower feel more relaxing
Just like any other product on the market, not all faucets are made the same. Some faucets boast high price points and fancy finishes while other brands offer low pricing and smart package design. How do you know if you are getting a quality product? Good question. Over the years we have heard many questions concerning the faucet quality and its price point.
The kitchen is the heart of the home where we spend most of our time preparing and enjoying meals, and, of course, cleaning up after them. The kitchen faucet is the staple of your kitchen. It not only has to seamlessly blend within the style of your home it also has to function and work just as hard (if not harder) than you.
What features should you look for in a kitchen faucet?
Let me guess, your thinking about redoing your bathroom and you have been looking online for inspiration for the project. There are so many beautiful designs to inspire from online, it's hard to know where to get started, especially when it comes to choosing fixtures.
