Installing A Shower Stall



Dear Shell,

I am installing a new shower stall that is 76" in height. At what height should the shower head be installed? Should it be installed above the enclosure (drywall) or have a hole drilled in the enclosure?

Thanks, Brian


Dear Brian,

1. A shower head should be installed 72" from the shower base.

2. The area above the shower stall would be best covered with ceramic tiles or plastic laminate i.e.: Arborite or Formica. At the very minimum use a best quality Kitchen and Bath Paint.

It's just that easy.
