If you've ever been to a luxury hotel, you'll know that entering the bathroom is about far more than having a shower and brushing your teeth. The good news is that, by hiring a plumber and developing a plan together, you can turn your bathroom into a relaxing oasis for you and your spouse to enjoy. There are many different plumbing-related upgrades that can be successfully completed by a plumber, helping to transform your bathroom from something mundane to somewhere that you'll want to spend more time. Here are some projects that this professional can implement.
Dual Shower Heads
If you and your spouse enjoy showering together, you'll often face the predicament of one person standing under the shower head while the other person stands at the opposite end of the shower — perhaps uncomfortable because he or she is out of the warm water. As long as the shower stall is large enough, your plumber will be able to install a second shower head to make showering together a more enjoyable experience for you and your spouse. You'll have a few options to consider, including whether you want a traditional wall-mounted head on the opposite end of the shower or whether you'd rather have a pair of rainfall-style shower heads mounted on the ceiling above the shower.
A plumber can turn a stand-up shower stall into a steam shower with the installation of a few key elements, such as some extra piping, a steam generator and a control panel. You'll then be able to get into your shower and, as you wash, crank up the steam to deepen the relaxation of this experience. Steam showers are also ideal if you or your spouse have allergies or respiratory issues, as the steady supply of steam can help to open the sinuses.
There are few activities as relaxing as soaking in a whirlpool tub, so speak to your local plumber about removing your conventional tub and adding a whirlpool model. There are several styles of whirlpool tubs available; those that fit in the corner are often popular, given that they can often be successfully installed in even small bathrooms. Your plumber will be often be able to recommend specific styles of whirlpool tubs after viewing and measuring your bathroom, as well as advising you about the features that are available to help augment the visual appeal of the space, including color-changing underwater lights.
