3) Installation Costs of a Full Custom Shower System

Installation Costs of a Full Custom Shower System

All Easy Install Shower Systems feature a Shower Control, Showerhead, and Handshower. The system is designed with 3 settings allowing you to run the Showerhead only, Handheld Shower only, or both at the same time. We also offer some Tub and Shower Combo Systems which add a tub spout function.

Full Custom Shower Systems are fantastic however they also come with a price tag. While Delta offers relatively affordable Shower Faucet Systems, the price of the fixtures is not the only thing to consider. The cost to install a Shower System is not insignificant. Depending on the situation, simply installing the plumbing for a Full Custom Shower System in a new construction project could take 6-9 hours. Given the average plumber charges $60-90 per hour and you are looking at an installation cost of $360-810.

In a bathroom renovation project (ie not new construction) the costs might even be significantly higher as you would have to completely open up the walls to run the water lines to the various shower spray systems (eg body sprays, handheld showers, ceiling mount shower heads, additional shower heads etc.) You would then have to close the wall back up and re-tile. If only there was a better way to install a Custom Shower System without going through all this hassle!

You can’t beat the ultimate luxury shower experience offered by a Full Custom Shower System so there’s no choice but to pay right? There’s no choice but to deal with the hassle and cost of installation because the end result will be worth it right? But what if there was another option?

To show the difference between a Full Custom Installation and an Easy Installation we have chosen a very similar Shower System and use it to illustrate 2 different ways the same functionality can be accomplished. In the first case you will see how the Full Custom Shower System is installed, and how it requires the installation of an extra Diverter Valve and also needs a lot of piping to be run inside the wall. Next, you will see how relatively simple the installation of an Easy Install Shower System is by comparison.

Bathroom Sink faucet Buying Guide

Bathroom Sink Buying Guide

There are many different kinds of sinks for your bathroom and kitchen. Popular bathroom sink styles include: Pedestal Sinks, Console Sinks, Wall Mount Sinks, Basin Sinks and Vessel Sinks.  Utility sinks offer large working basins for heavy jobs done in laundry rooms, utility rooms, & garages.

Below is a list of the different types of sinks and basic characteristics of each type:

Pedestal Sinks

Pedestal Sink Pedestal sinks include a vitreous china basin that attaches to your wall and rests on a matching pedestal. The pedestal portion of a pedestal sink is designed to hide the plumbing of the drain and p-trap making pedestal sinks both functional and efficient. Pedestal sinks are great for tight spaces. Their inherent design and variety of sizes make pedestal sinks the perfect choice for increasing the amount of open space in almost any bathroom.

For smaller bathrooms, corner pedestal sinks serve two functions. First, the corner design is a tremendous bathroom space saver, allowing you to tuck your sink into short corners. Secondly, the corner pedestal sink design adds a definitive level of class and style to a smaller bathroom. Many smaller bathrooms look and feel like afterthoughts, but a corner pedestal sink can add a measure of charm and sophistication to even the smallest of powder rooms.

Pedestal sinks are available with 4” on-center, or for widespread faucets, 8” and 12” on-center faucet drillings. A simple style rule of thumb is you can pair either the decorative backsplash of the pedestal sink, or the architectural design of the pedestal base with a matching toilet. The vitreous china used in the manufacture is a nonporous, hard clay material that is fired to create a beautiful smooth, glassy surface showcasing the classic style of pedestal sinks. Easy to clean and enchanting to the eye, pedestal sinks have enriched bathrooms world wide for well over a century.<br

Console Sinks

Console Sink Console sinks are larger wall-mounted bathroom sinks with 2 to 4 decorative legs. Options of a single, 4”, widespread or 3 hole faucet drillings make console sinks one of the more versitile bathroom sinks. This style offers a larger vanity surface area and classical stylings. Some console sinks include integrated towel bars, making console sinks an elegant combination of form and function. Similar to pedestal sinks, you can pair the architectural design of the vanity to a matching toilet to complete your bathroom. Console sinks were typically a sign of wealth in the early 20th century, but today consoles sinks are an affordable way to enhance the look of any bathroom.

 

Wall Mount Sinks

Wall Mount Sink Wall mount sinks are great for smaller bathrooms or bathrooms which have design issues requiring a smaller sink footprint. Wall mount sinks come in a wide assortment of styles with widths from 11” – 42”, and with bowls from 4” – 22” deep. This wide range of wall mount sink styling give you several options to complete your vintage or modern style bathroom. Wall mount sinks generally come with 4” on-center or widespread faucet hole drillings for a full assortment of faucet options.

Like corner pedestal sinks, a corner wall mount sink is a terrific option for small bathrooms or bathrooms with challenging floor plans. By utilizing corner space in combination with wall mounting the sink, you maximize the open space in a bathroom. This allows room for more bath accessories such as heated towel warmers, bath shelves, and towel racks.m.

 

Basin Sinks

Basin Sink Basin sinks can come in several unique styles. The first condition to base basin sink selection upon should be how it is going to be mounted. Basin sinks can be drop-in sinks, undermounted sinks, or recessed into the countertop. Basin sinks can utilize single post, 4″, or 8″ sink faucets allowing you to customize them with the faucet of your choice. Basin sinks are the perfect choice for bathrooms utilizing an existing countertop or one in which a sink counter is desired.

 

Vessel Sinks

Vessel Sink Vessel sinks are the sink of choice for showcase bathrooms. No other sink can match the artistic beauty & classic form of the vessel sink. A vessel sink is typified by a simple or ornate bowl that sits upon a countertop. Most times a vessel sinks will be fed by a wall mounted faucet typical of ancient Roman baths. However, vessel sinks can also be filled by single post faucets mounted on a small pedestal with plumbing running under the countertop in lieu of the wall.

Perhaps only pedestal sinks can match vessel sinks for the variety of available forms and stylings. Vessel sinks can run the gamut from simple white or hammered metal bowls, through a vast array of colorful, hand painted and/or hand formed vessel masterpieces. Combining simplicity with artistic craftmanship, vessel sinks can enhance the image of any bathroom.

 

Utility Sinks

Utility Sink Utility sinks are marked by their large basins and accessability. Utility sinks need to be able to handle large jobs and not get in the way. Hence, utility sinks can often resemble console sinks. Utilizing legs the utility sink differentiates itself from the console sink by usually having a deep rectangualr basin as opposed to the more circular and shallower basins found in console sinks used in bathrooms. Utility sinks can also be found wall mounted, undermounted, and even recessed into a sink stand. Utilty sinks also can be found in cast iron, the same durable material used in vintage clawfoot tubs. A utility sinks is essentially a bathtub for all things non human, and makes an exceptional bathing area for pets such as small dogs and cats.

In & Out of the bathroom: The Bathroom trends of 2017

In & Out of the bathroom: The Bathroom trends of 2017

27 Jan 2017

It’s our job to know what’s coming (and going) to ensure we are always providing a product that is ‘Superior as Standard’.

A lot of our predictions come from provable statistical and industry insight, and some are more about gut feeling and our personal analysis of the direction of trends – and those informed theories are something we thought we’d share with you.

 

What to look out for in 2017

 

Digital VS Analogue

This may seem like a strange heading when talking about décor trends but it’s the best way we could summarise the coming bathroom trends for 2017 – let us explain. For the past decade especially, the tech giant Apple has had a huge influence in all areas of design, that influence has been seen in the clean, crisp lined, bright, reflective surfaces we’ve all become so used to. The design predictions for this year seem very much like a decisive kick-back against the clean reflective surfaces we look into every day, replacing them with raw materials, handcrafted objects, and imperfect forms i.e. An imperfect analogue aesthetic, compared to modern clean digital forms.

 

Colours

For years we’ve been awash with white, with the more daring throwing in the accent of a fresh bright colour, but we’re about to see the introduction of something new. This year is about sophisticated hues, matt sunrise pastels and confidently dark tones. The pastel colour palette trend rolling over from the end of last year consists of the kind of colours you’d expect to see in a desert sunrise – soft blues, pinks, peaches, violets and soft yellows.

 

bathroom trends 2017 colours

We’re out of the economic crisis, so to celebrate (before any political blunders cause another crisis) the colour of the year is the colour of money, green. Jokes aside, the many and numerous trend spotters are all reasonably unanimous that green will be pretty instrumental in décor trends this year alongside other rich earthy tones – so expect to see it in both tiles and paint schemes. Darker colours like dusky blue and very dark greys will be equally popular and can already be seen on a mass market level with commercial brands like Ikea already pushing dark interiors in this years’ showrooms.

 

Metals

For the last few years Copper and Rose Gold have absolutely dominated the pages of interior magazines and proliferated the home décor mass market, but as of 2017 we predict this is about to change. There has been a lot of early signs suggesting the bold copper colours are being replaced with the more muted tones of Brass, Bronze and tarnished metals with interesting patinas.

 

Ceramics

This is an important section of future trends, particularly in relation to bathroom design, seeing as ceramic and stoneware tiles account for a significant area of wallspace in every bathroom! So when it comes to tiles we predict you’ll see the metro tile carry on but in varied forms. The standard size high gloss metro will be seen in dark greens and crackled glazes, the white metro tile will be popular in a thinner (lower) heights and will be far more common in ‘raw’ bone whites and chalkier more tactile textures. To complement the new earthy, raw and green trends there has also been some talk about the resurgence of terracotta tiling, we’re not sure what the uptake of this idea will be, but we thought we’d mention it.

 

This year ceramics will be far more important to décor than just its impact on our tiling choices, artisanal handcrafted earthenware glazed items are the must have accessories of the year, replacing the clean copper and marble creations of the previous year.

 

Accessorising

So far we’ve talked about a very particular imperfect, tactile look for this years’ trends and this carries on into accessories and other materials you might be using in the bathroom.

Cork – In the early nineties there was a short-lived trend for cork flooring, but this year cork walls and other areas of cork detailing will be very prominent.

Woven baskets – That’s right you’ll see the re-emergence of the wicker laundry basket. Woven wicker products are sure to find their way into a few bathroom accessories this year.

Darker woods – So following a long stretch of light (Danish stained) and whitewashed woods to fit our clean, light environments you’ll start to see an increase in darker woods.

Living walls – You may have seen these pop up as a curiosity on Pinterest, but this year the living wall, a wall constructed of mosses, ferns and living plants, is set to appear in homes and hotels.

 

2017 trends in summary

In the year that celebrates 10 years of the iPhone, general trend predictions suggest that the contemporary bathroom aesthetic will be taking a step away from the white minimal tech inspired aesthetic, to something more tactile, more colourful, more natural and a little less homogenised in its perfection.

This leaning towards bold new colours, individual features and visibly tactile surfaces is perfectly complemented by the fact that we’ve introduced PureVueHD glass as standard in our Classic and Coastline shower enclosure ranges. PureVueHD breaks down the barrier between you and your décor with its clearer glass highlighting all those new textures and not adulterating all those muted metals, natural colours and tactile material choices.
