    Children do not need to be bathed in a bathtub! We had a bathtub but still bathed them in the shower. Children can play on the floor of the shower and like to get "rained" on. I own a cleaning company and the tub is one of the least used areas of the house. right up there with the movie theater and exercise room. Some even use it for dirty laundry!!

    Thank you for the nice comments jackcooper1 and others. As requested, I'm sending additional a link to an ideabook that has additional photos of the bathroom. Leslie Stocker, from Design Elements was the designer and I've put a link to her site/contact information if you have questions about fixtures, etc. She has been great to work with and worked miracles in our bathroom as you can see from the before pictures! http://www.houzz.com/ideabooks/77808053/thumbs/master-bathroom

    nehyman, thank you for your honest review you just saved me a lot of money. Back to the drawing board for me ....
  • nehyman
    As I stated in my original comment, I stood on a ladder and tested the water at the point where the water leaves the shower head. The difference in temperature between the three areas of spray was over 15 degrees. If the outside ring was 100 degrees, the middle ring would be over 115 degrees and the center bead would be over 130 degrees. By the way the water in the center comes out with so much force that it's impossible to stand under it and when it is turned on it the water shoots across the room. It is impossible to shower under this shower head as designed. It was recommended and installed by Bryce and Doyle in Rochester NY who did not stand behind the product. I had the Hansgrohe rep out and here is what he wrote to me in a follow up letter:

    "Overall, HansGrohe has provided a quality product that now functions as designed.
    Thank you,
    Joe Jaeger"

    I would like to see Joe Jaeger stand under the shower head when it is set to 100 degrees and feel what 130 degree water feels like coming from the center bead. Obviously it is a very bad design because, as you pointed out, the different streams of water fall and cool at different rates.

    so install a diverter valve so you can use the rain head OR the wall head
  • vancouverlori
    It wasn't my house, so I wasn't at liberty to make any changes. They did have a handheld shower wand/thing, but because the bathroom was located in a basement, there was a large window along the long wall from about rib height to ceiling, so the handheld was only mounted at about thigh level. The faucet for the tub and the hand held were both mounted there, in the middle of that long wall - too far to add any sort of higher mounting spot for the handheld along either of the short walls. Just wanted to point out that those rain shower head thingies look cool but don't work for everyone.

  • desireesmith81911
    Mu husband and I were discussing this bathroom idea because we love it. However, the cost is way out of the ballpark for us. We figured, this could be recreated at a fraction of the price. I can't imagine anyone needs $8000 worth of fixtures to make a decent job of recreation. And, if your handy and can do much of the tiling yourself, that would cut down on the cost even more.

  • PRO
    Fabulous shower, ART Design Build! These wall lights by the floor look very similar to the Sun3 recessed floor/wall lights by Edge Lighting. They are wet location rated, so they can be used outdoors and in showers like this to create pretty spectacular effects. They come in a variety of beam spreads to achieve different lighting effects.


    Hope this helps!

    I'm not positive but it looks like a Dornbracht RainSky M overhead rain shower which can be purchased on Amazon. Unless you have really deep pockets, you may be shocked at the price however.

    If you dropped the rainbox you could tighten this down to 36". Anything less is a shower we call an 'elbow knocker'.

    I know of a system called Schluter. You would have to recess the existing joist and lay a recessed sloped floor in the joist. At that point it becomes flush with the floor. It sometimes isn't possible but if you find a good contractor anything is possible. I have been in business 22 years doing Remoulding. Good luck.

                                                    Sam Ferris added this to Your Guide to Shower Floor MaterialsFeb 3, 2016

                                                    2. Travertine It’s hard not to find a style of travertine you love, whether it’s chiseled, honed, polished or tumbled. This natural stone has the best of earth’s creams, browns, grays and golds packaged into designer tiles that grace homes across the world. Pros: Home buyers love travertine, and not just because of its veins and swirls. They also appreciate the slip resistance it offers, particularly that of tumbled travertine, as well as how long it lasts. Cons: Travertine is porous, so you could find yourself in hot water if you forget to seal it. It is recommended that you seal it every one to two years unless your sealer lasts longer. Other than that, your main concern is staining. Anything other than a mild detergent can affect the stone’s surface. Be careful how you clean it and be careful of the soaps and shampoos you use.
