We’ve been using our newly remodeled master bathroom for 5 months now and it still feels like a dream. Almost every day, either Chris or I comment on how wonderful, beautiful, functional or worth it it was. All the painstaking planning really paid off.
Even still, we often get asked (mostly by others gearing up for their own bathroom renovation, I think) “What would you do differently?” It wasn’t until recently it dawned on us–We would skip the rain shower head.
When planning out the shower, we were originally going to do a steam shower, with a shower head on each side and the rain shower in the middle. We ended up nixing the steam option and I’m so glad we did–it gets PLENTY steamy in there! And we LOVE having two shower heads on either side–they are both constantly used. But the rain shower? Not so much. It’s nice for a very short time until it feels like you’re drowning in water. I’ve tried just using the rain shower head, but it wasn’t as enjoyable as the side heads, so it goes unused 98% of the time.
Obviously this is all a luxury and it’s not something we would remove, but hopefully it serves as a heads up to anyone else about to embark on a bathroom renovation. Maybe it’s the size of our shower (48″x60″), but for us, the rain shower sounded more appealing than it ended up being.
Anyone else with a similar set up have thoughts on rain showers?
