Shower faucets are often overlooked, but these fixtures are integral components that not only affect how showers work but how the bathroom decor looks overall. When you're in the market for a shower faucet, you should consider which shower valve is needed, what can figuration is needed, and what your home’s average water pressure is.
Also, the shower faucet should match the bathtub faucet, and you must make sure the shower faucet goes well with the rest of the bathroom decor. There are so many shower faucets on the market these days, and the vast majority of these faucets possess a range of desirable qualities.

How to Choose the Perfect Shower Faucet
Before you select a shower faucet, the first thing you must consider is the shower valve. This component controls water flow, and it’s attached to a handle so the water flow can be controlled easily. The valve is put into the wall first. Once it’s installed, the rest of the components, as well as the shower stall, will be installed.
Once everything is in place, the shower valve will no longer be visible. Instead, a handle and a escutcheon will indicate the spot where the valve is located behind the wall. To ensure the handle and escutcheon go well together, purchase a faucet set or a trim kit.
Nowadays, there are several popular shower faucet configurations. One can select a solo shower head or go with an all-in-one combination, and this latter configuration boasts a shower tap as well as a bathtub faucet. There are five main kinds of shower taps to choose from:
Single-head spray shower heads
Dual and multiple shower heads
Hand-held shower heads
When you visit our showroom, we’ll explain how each shower head works, as with this information you’ll be able to pick the one that’s best for you.
One should also know what their home’s average water pressure is before picking up a shower faucet. In general, the water pressure for most shower heads is between 40 and 60 pounds per square inch. If you don't know how to gauge your home’s water pressure, buy a tester and screw it onto the shower arm where the shower head is supposed to go. Once you have a good idea of what your home’s water pressure is, you can pick out a faucet.
