Kohler is one of the better known manufacturers that produce fixtures and fittings for the bathroom, and Kohler shower stalls can make a decorative choice for a home. The company has an extensive product line available, ranging from simple shower heads and faucets to full shower enclosures. This ensures that anyone choosing Kohler has a wide variety of options open to find a shower enclosure and accessories that will provide their bathroom with an attractive look and a functional shower.
For those that have a shower/tub combination, Kohler shower faucets are an option to consider. These come in a variety of attractive styles and are produced in premium materials to be durable and long lasting. The various options available come in a range of colors and finishes to ensure that whatever the design of a bathroom, there will be a choice of suitable Kohler faucets to match the look.
Faucets come in tub mounted, wall mounted, and even floor mounted styles, and homeowners can choose a type that has the diverter included on the faucet or alternatively those that have a separate diverter handle. The styles available range from a more traditional look to a minimalist, contemporary appearance and this again provides options to match the look of a faucet into the style of a bathroom. In some cases the faucet also comes with a small hand shower attached, and this is something to consider for those that want a more flexible and useful fixture.
A Kohler shower base also commonly goes by the name shower receptor and they provide an alternative to the more traditional tiled enclosure base. The bases are one piece construction that are basically ready to be slotted in place in a bathroom as the starting point for an enclosure. They comes in a few different shapes, with common options including square, rectangular and corner fitting neo angle styles. Sizes vary from a smaller 32 inches square up to around 60 inches square, and the material options include Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP), acrylic, and cast iron. This provides options to find a style of base that best suits the needs of a bathroom layout and design.
Kohler bases also come in a variety of colors, and homeowners can choose from lighter whites and creams to colorful pastels and darker hues to easily match a base into the color scheme of a bathroom. For those in the market for a safer base, which is less of a tripping hazard, Kohler produces low threshold bases. These have a smaller step, which provides easy access into and out of the shower.
Kohler shower pans provide a quick and simple way to create the base of an enclosure in a bathroom. The pans are molded in a single piece in a few different materials, including acrylic, plastic, and cast iron, and this basically makes them simple to install in a bathroom. The various materials are also strong, durable and easy to care for and the one piece construction ensures that there is less chance of leaks to the floor below the pan. The pans typically come with the drain already in place and options are available in terms of its position, from center to back drains.
Kohler pans come in a variety of sizes and colors, such that no matter the size, layout, and interior design of a bathroom, it should be possible to find a suitable shower pan to fit in. The pans are available to install in a variety of locations, from a corner fitting neo angle shape, to square and rectangular shapes, which can fit in corner as well as other positions along a bathroom wall.
Kohler shower valves come in a few different configurations to suit any bathroom enclosure set up. Control valve options include a volume control valve, which lets the flow of water be controlled separately for each individual water outlet, and a 3-way transfer valve, which enables up to six different water outlets be controlled from a single handle. Kohler also produces a few types of mixing valves. These include the HiFlow Rite-Temp Pressure-Balancing Valve, which provides temperature control from one-handle and a high temperature limit stop for extra safety and less chance of being scalded by hot water.
The MasterShower Thermostatic Valve provides precise temperature control, with the XVII model having a single handle to control flow and temperature and the XVII Stacked model having separate handles for water flow and temperature. Kohler’s top of the line model, the Digital Thermostatic Valve, combines a digital valve and control panel, which has the capabilities to individually control up to eight different fixtures. This valve can also have pre-programmed configurations that enable the user to set up the shower in the manner that is most comfortable for them and have access to this at the touch of a button.
For those in the process of designing their bathroom, a Kohler shower stall is an option to consider. With the fixtures available ranging from valves to shower bases, and faucets, Kohler provides all the hardware required to produce a full shower enclosure. The various fixtures come in a variety of styles and materials to ensure that an attractive and practical shower can be installed that will be a feature of a bathroom.
