If you have a custom shower (with multiple jets), a pressure balance valve is not a high flow valve, and cannot be expected to replace a thermostatic temperature control valve, especially in a multiple shower outlet installation. If the number of shower outlets desired is more than one valve can accommodate, it will be necessary to use two (or more) thermostat valves.
The latest designs do this using a built in thermostat. These are known as thermostatic mixing valves, thermostat valves, or TMVs, and can be mechanical or electronic. Another type is an anti-scald valve, which is only to prevent the water from getting to hot, but not chilling.
Perhaps, the most important thing to remember, when looking to buy a new shower stall, is the amount of space that you have available. If you are going from one bathtub to a bathtub and a standalone shower, there is a chance that you may be limited on space. If that is the case, you may find your options to be somewhat limited. That is unless you are planning on remodelling your entire bathroom. If you are planning on changing your entire bathroom around, it may be easier for you to find and purchase the shower stall of your choice, without having to worry about whether or not it will even fit in your bathroom.
Use Waterfall Shower Heads To Give Your Bathroom A Natural Theme: One trend that I've noticed in recent months is nature themed bathrooms. Homeowners are doing things such as installing wall panels and shower stalls that are made out of, or at least appearing to be made out of rocks. They're putting plants inside their bathrooms and adding skylight windows. And perhaps the hottest item for nature themed bathrooms is the waterfall faucet.
The tempered glass in steam showers should be at least 5mm thick. Most steam showers have 6mm glass this is something you should ask about before purchasing the shower. Thinner glass has a much higher risk of breaking.
