Are you always stuck waiting for your partner to get out of the shower so you can use it? A double shower might be the solution you're looking for. Double showers not only add value to a home, but they also have ample space for two people to take a shower whenever they like.
Installing a double shower is usually best done during a full bathroom renovation. And because of their size, double showers tend to be the focal point of a primary bathroom. Thus, making smart decor decisions with the colors and materials matters.
About This Term: Primary Bathroom
