Shower arm coming out from a wood paneled wall?
For the walk in shower, I am considering where to install the shower arm for a raindance shower head. My husband is 6'2" so I would like the shower head to be 6'8"h or so.
1. is that the right height, or should I make the shower head 7'h?
I can't have the shower head come straight down from the ceiling because it's open wood. My bathroom plan features mahogany paneling on the walls above the 6'8" door height, tile below. I think it would look better to have the 12" shower arm come straight out from the paneled wall about 6" above the tile edge.
The other option is to get a shower arm with an exaggerated "S" shape that swoops up -- so the arm comes out of the tile area of the wall, the curve goes up above to suspend the shower head. I don't think this would look as good.
Will the paneling be OK with the shower arm coming out from it, or will it get damaged?
