Now, on your way home, you remember that you have to meet the contractor who is replacing your back deck. You have to be coherent enough to make decisions.

It leaves you longing for a way to get away from it all at the end of the day. Maybe there is…

When you hear the word “Christmas,” you may immediately envision family gatherings in a cheerfully decorated living room, sharing stories around a crackling fireplace. Maybe you anticipate cold winter evenings, sipping hot cocoa while curled up with a book by a cozy hearth. Or perhaps you recall beloved childhood memories of coming inside from a frigid adventure – sledding, shoveling, or building snowmen – and warming up cold hands and feet by the fire.

How To Choose A Shower Panel

Comments  |   Posted   |  By Brandon Tang
"Are you a bath or shower person?” was one of the many questions I encountered during my lunch break as a few coworkers and I were discussing what we preferred. After exchanging answers and other trivialities from “LA or NYC” or “candy or chocolate” to “automatic or manual”, the bath and shower question really stuck with me. It got me thinking about shower panels, a type of product that we sell at here at AKDY®, and the fact that I had never heard of such a thing until I began this job. I realized that there are many different methods of getting clean, but lets deviate from the usual approach.

Allow me to explain what exactly a shower panel is. A shower panel is wall mounted panel that has a myriad of features on it to help you get clean. Things like body sprays and massaging jets dot the panel, as well as a shower head and possibly, a shower wand. It is mainly featured in walk in showers, but again, a bathroom design is only limited by space, imagination, and income.
