For the home that was built in decades past, the standard shower height for a tub/shower is 72”. If the users of the shower are not tall, this height may be perfect. But for the taller users, a 72” shower head is not ideal, because the user must crouch to get clean as the shower head itself ends up even lower than that. Raising the shower head and installing new tub/shower fixtures is not the most basic of DIY projects; however, it is our hope that this tutorial will help you do it right, including solving some of the dilemmas you might run into when working with copper pipe and an older home.
If you will be raising your shower head, determine how much higher you want your shower head to be. This example will raise the shower head a full foot. Mark that spot on the vertical studs. Then cut a 2×4 to fit snugly between the two framing studs and screw or hammer it into place, with the center of the new 2×4 piece hitting at your mark.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a bathroom can never have enough storage space. There are the stacks of towels and wash clothes that need a shelf. There are bottles of shampoo and bars of soap. Boxes of Q-tips spill over and bags of cotton balls are stuffed into the empty spaces. And let’s not get started on the feminine necessities for health and beauty. Every bathroom needs a good set of shelves to store all these fundamentals, but you don’t have to empty your piggy bank for them. Try your hand at one of these DIY bathroom shelves that will increase the storage space in your bathroom.
