Remodeling on a budget?

Just because you're on a budget doesn't mean that you can't live the life of luxury in your bathroom. There are many options available that will help you stay inside your budget and bring that luxurious feel to your space.

Upgrade your shower with a 2-in-1 shower system

Having a dual function shower for some can be considered a luxury. Most grew up with a standard tub and shower set up with a single function shower head that had enough force behind it to power wash the back deck. Today however, more and more people are realizing the benefit to a personal hand shower.

The Delta In2ition 2-in-1 shower head features a detachable hand shower which can be used separately from or simultaneously with the shower head. This integrated dual-functionality gives you maximum flexibility without sacrificing warmth, as you can choose to have water streaming from the shower head only, the hand shower only or both the shower head and hand shower at once.

Try a Retro-fit Shower System

Introducing the GROHE Retro-Fit Shower System, the quick and simple solution for upgrading any standard tub/shower installation into a "shower experience". With the GROHE Retro-Fit, you will enjoy both a high performance GROHE DreamSpray shower head and the convenience of a height-adjustable GROHE hand shower.

Ideal for retrofit or renovation, the GROHE Retro-Fit Shower System installs easily and quickly. Simply replace the existing shower arm and add the system components without altering any in-wall plumbing. Once installed, it’s easy to use; a quarter turn of the diverter lever (located at the bottom of the shower bar) switches water flow from showerhead to hand shower or you can have both outlets on simultaneously.
