Personally, if we were redoing the master bath, I like clean lines and wouldn't put a recess shelf in. Just one more thing to clean up, to my mind. Hubby uses a Shower Clean spray after every shower and that reduces upkeep. I'm a tub person.

I like artisan type soap saver dishes next to the sinks and tub, where they can dry easily between uses and can be changed out when we change decor.

Not very exciting, I know... just something to think about.

Cleanliness is key. I hate cleaning showers! I'm using large format tiles, small grout lines, and brushed nickel hardware to help minimize the hassle. Did I say how happy I'll be to finally have a handshower? Check out this baby. Minimalistic maintenance!

I have hand-shower envy -- -- I bought one for the downstairs bath -- it never got installed -- it's still gathering dust -- sigh.

It takes a pipe wrench, some teflon tape, and about 5 minutes to change the shower head for a hand shower. I have installed my last 5 or so. Big hint, do NOT use the pipe wrench to tighten the new connection. Use hand strength only. That way, you don't need a hubby to loosen it up the next time.

I've never liked a handshower as the main shower head and refuse to have one. Don't like the looks and can never get the angle I want. I am psyched I will have one off to the side now! And I really like that sleek design - perfect for singing in the shower

My hubby is 6'4", and has a hard time with shower head placement, the hand shower got that shower head up 6 inches, which makes a HUGE difference for him. I am 5'1", and the versatility of aiming it lower for me helps a lot. It is also a shower massage, which helps with aches and pains.
