Master Bath Shower Fixtures


I just bought new construction. The master bath shower is fitted with Danze fixtures that consist of a rain shower head, hand held shower head on sliding bar, thermostat knob , and (2) separate on/off knobs for the two shower heads. I want to replace these fixtures with Köhler that better match the sink hardware. Is this an easy remove and replace or will it entail cutting out some tile and drywall to change our fittings?

Be more cost effective to:
change out lavatory faucets to match shower
Be whole lot more cost effective to:
recognize that shower system doesn't have to truly match lavs

Price up the cost of the new Kohler shower system desired
you will need new rough in valves & all the trim for a true cost
Double that price for labor cost to re-plumb your existing shower
round up to at least next grand to accommodate tile demo/replacement
wild card factors: new sheet rock, paint, loss of use, construction delays

but it's your money - do what you want to do

Peace

You're probably out of luck there. Obviously you could change the shower heads, but the trims (i.e. the part you see) on the shower valves will not be interchangeable. Perhaps you can find some Danze handles etc that are suitable?

Yep.This is a decorating issue not a plumbing question.

Re: Master Bath Shower Fixtures


Unfortunately it is for a clent who insists on changing out he shower fixtures on new construction. The developer changed the sink fixture but refused the shower request even though they haven’t tiled yet. I was just trying to see how much of an expense they will incur. The rain shower head should be just a swap out as well as the head of the hand shower. They’ll have to accept the knob fixtures. This sounds like their least expensive option. Thanks for the replies.
