With so many shower kit options on the market, homeowners can now buy a shower system ideally made to suit their needs. In this article, we’re discussing shower kit brands, the different types of shower systems, and their ‘best-for’ features.
We look over the top brands for quality, luxury, style, affordability, and innovation. Today, there are so many great brands creating and designing shower products, making it super simple to find the right solution for your home. For homeowners, it’s essential to learn this information about showers and their components to determine the features you want to have in your new shower system. Having this knowledge makes for a much simpler buying process.
Types of Shower Kits
For the most part, shower kits come in two types: dual shower systems and three-way shower systems. Here are the differences:
Dual Shower Systems
Dual shower systems are also known as two-way shower kits. As the name suggests, dual shower systems consist of a large rain head or hand shower, or hand shower and a tub spout. You can choose the combination of two functions. Most of the 2-way shower kits include a rough-in that goes behind the wall, and we recommend that you check before you make a purchase. The kits also include a shower trim, shower arm, elbow, thermostatic valve, and pressure balance valve, depending on the type of system you are looking for.
Three-Way Shower Systems
Three-way shower kits come with a large rain head, hand shower, body jets, and a tub spout. 3-way shower systems are similar to dual shower kits in mechanism yet have the added function to control the tub spout, giving you a third output for water.
Learning about the different types of shower kits will make buying a new shower system a lot easier. Once you determine the type of shower system you want, you can browse the various shower kit brands. First, though, we recommend you set a clear budget for your shower kit so that you know what you’re comfortable spending and where you can make compromises.
