Bath fixtures may be used to refer to sinks, showers, bath tubs, faucets etc which are all available in a wide variety of designs, sizes and material to fit your taste and needs.
One of the most important bath fixtures are showers. Usually they are installed after the construction is complete. But some buildings are built with pre-installed showers that do away with the hassle of installing showers that fit your bath size. Modern showers are easy to install and take less time and less space too. Most of these showers are purposely designed to fit in built bathrooms of which the most popular design is the corner shower.
