Shower with only handheld on sliding poll
We are redoing two baths right now. In my kids bath, its a tub (expanse)/Shower combo. I have boys ranging in age from 2-10 and they will all probably be around 6'8" when grown. I was thinking of getting JUST a handheld shower and one mounted on a sliding bar so that depending on the child, it could be very high or lower. From reading, I think I want a thermostatic valve.
1. Is just having a handheld ok or will this feel chintzy? It's not a cheap remodel- everything else in their bathroom will be pretty solid- I just don't know if having two faucets (fixed and handheld) in a kids tub/shower combo is excessive.
2. What brands do people recommend? The hansgroe seemed a little contemporary. I'm more traditional- thinking a brushed nickel finish.
3. It seems the ability to "match" sink faucets to the limited number of styles for a handheld on a sliding bar might be an issue- what do other people do? Just match the finish and not worry about the style?
