Showers have grown in popularity in modern America, outpacing baths at such a rate they’re considering renaming it “the shower room”.
OK, not really. At least not the whole renaming-the-room bit.
Showers have become not just an integral part of daily life, but a get-away from it as well.

Multiple shower heads or water delivery ports can individualize the shower experience for a bathroom with multiple users, and allow each person a custom experience.
Customization is essential in every area of the home; today’s consumers have clear ideas of what their space must include, and how these elements should function. And with multiple users in each home, versatility is critical

American’s are more health conscious than ever before and, like everything we do, we tend to our health all out or not at all.
With a growing focus on health and wellness in our culture, it’s no surprise to hear these elements are important in the bathroom as well.
Health-oriented shower features range from massaging shower heads to steam options to aromatherapy, and make the shower even more spa-like.
