HATE my brand new shower!

posted by: debrak_2008 on 04.03.2011 at 12:42 pm in Bathrooms Forum

We finally moved it to our new master bath yesterday. Today I was the first to use the new shower. I hate it.

We thought the clear glass door would fog up giving some privacy. Wrong it just gets wet.

The shower head appears to be too high on the wall so I can't move around to well without getting shot in the face.

Tried to shave my legs, you can't shave under the stream of water so I have to turn on the hand held only and put it on the floor, holding with one hand. Shave with the other while sitting on the built in seat. Its ok for your calves put not for the rest, had to then get turned around and put one foot on the seat (too high). With all that I ended up slicing my legs pretty good, blood all over a brand new white towel.

Open the door to get out and get blasted with cold air. ? There is forced air and under floor heating which is turned on.

Haven't said anything to DH yet. I can't believe this is happening.

Thanks for listening.

From left to right;

-The closet is 24" deep and 21" wide.

-The three-piece breakfront; the left and right cabs are 21" deep and 18" wide, the center 23" deep and 33-1/2" wide. All three cabs in the breakfront are 33-1/2" tall with a 1-1/2" thick countertop on top, total 35" tall. Sink is 4" thick, so top of sink is 39" high. I'm 6'4, my wife 5'1", we both love it.

-The toilet pony wall is 15-1/2" wide and 33" deep. The cab is 48" tall, with the teak it's 49-1/2" tall.

The 33" deep toilet pony wall has two drawers. The top drawer is not full-depth, there is a false back in the upper drawer hole that reduces that drawer hole depth by maybe 10" or so. The area behind the false back holds three outlets, one that faces the toilet, one that faces the sink, and another outlet on the false drawer hole back to power things my wife keeps in the top drawer. The back of the drawer is cut down for outlet access.

The lower cabinet is full depth, I made a single pull-out unit and put it on 28" long drawer slides. The pullout is divided vertically into two halves, one half faces the sink, the other side the toilet. The side that faces the sink is sort of like a medicine cabinet. The shelves are maybe 3 or 4" deep. The side that faces the toilet is deeper, the shelves are maybe 5 or 6" deep. Deep enough to hold rolls of toilet paper, bathroom and toilet cleaning supplies, etc.
