It wasn't too long ago that separate showers were a convenience but not a necessity in the home. Occasionally, a second bathroom was equipped with only a shower, but that was usually considered a nod to limited space or budget and deemed to be a less than ideal solution. A standard tub with a single shower head, even in a master bath was the norm. Not so any longer.
Today, in luxurious master baths, a large and imposing shower is often the focal point, with or without a freestanding tub. Things have changed dramatically. And the best of today's showers are nothing if not dramatic!
