When remodeling or updating a shower design and enclosure, certain considerations should be decided before breaking significant ground. Such as, faucet and shower head options because there is an array of options, narrowing that aspect down can help a lot. In addition, choosing a general theme or color palette can be a huge assist in the design process. Décor is generally one of the last checks on the list because the theme and layout is established and it is easier to decorate. Kingston has a wide range of options for shower faucets and shower accessories to choose from.
Choosing tile, colors and faucets to create a statement shower, your personal preference and home style should align.
For instance, the color tone of the tile in the shower should contrast the tile found in the kitchen and other bathrooms. Marble or quartz is a classic look for a shower tile and pairs well with chrome, brass black faucets. It’s a great tile option for versatility. Subway tiles are another versatile option that can be paired with many differentiations of finishes and themes.

Shower faucets can be chosen in a classic style, rain shower and rain drop shower. The major difference between rain shower and rain drop is that rain shower is simply the shower head. Whereas the rain drop is attached to the handles and is accompanied by a hand shower for an overall spa like experience. Kingston’s Vintage Wall Mount Rain Drop Shower is an excellent option if a wall mount is plausible. It comes in four different finishes, polished chrome, brushed nickel, oil rubbed bronze and polished brass. Depending on the budget and style of the shower, one of these three options will be superior to the others.
Frameless Glass Door
Now a significant aspect in a remodel or new design for a shower is the choice between frameless glass doors or using a shower curtain and rod combo. These glass doors are a common choice these days because of their aesthetic attributes. They can be easier on the eye while also being easier to use and clean. Having frameless glass doors may be easier to clean versus a shower curtain because a simple wipe and a squeegee does the trick. The frameless glass doors provide a long lasting elegant and sophisticated look. The biggest differentiation between the two is the most important, the cost. Frameless glass doors do cost drastically more than a shower curtain and rod however it may add to the value of the bathroom. Depending on location and certain values, the cost may be higher in certain areas and lower in others.
Shower curtains are a cost effective and durable choice. They do have to be changed every so often and a shower curtain rod and hooks are required to hang the curtain. Shower curtains are a great inexpensive option and there is an abundance of choices for the finishes of the curtain rod and many shower curtain patterns. These are great options if you are budget conscious.
Designing a shower is an exciting process but may also contain some big decisions. Between the shower tile and the faucets to what type of enclosure your preference best aligns with. Kingston has several options and differentiations of faucets and shower accessories for your remodel or design.
