One Handle Shower Faucet


Stand in your shower pan and casually stretch your hand out in front of you. Right above waist level, right where it feels right, that's where. It should be between 42-48 inches off the floor. More importantly is the depth of the valve inside the wall. You need to know how thick your finished wall is going to be. With that in mind, your trim plate must go over the valve and secure to the finished wall without the valve sticking out too far(unsightly). If it's too far inside the wall, you may have to buy an extension kit. The other concern is that the shower head comes out of the wall at least 2 inches above any type of surround, fiberglass or tile. It should be approximately 6' 4", remembering that the shower arm and head drops back down 6 inches. If the shower head arm comes out too close to where the tile or surround ends, the trim flange or escutcheon will not mount flush or flat to the finished wall. It will look terrible. Hope this helps.
