Installing New Shower Fixtures

I just bought new construction. The master bath shower is fitted with Danze fixtures that consist of a rain shower head, hand held shower head on sliding bar, thermostat knob , and (2) separate on/off knobs for the two shower heads. I want to replace these fixtures with Köhler that better match the sink hardware. Is this an easy remove and replace or will it entail cutting out some tile and drywall to change our fittings?

You will need access to the plumbing in the wall. Often it's easier to gain access by cutting through the wall on the back side as it's usually just sheetrock which is easier to patch. You will have to be mindful of the holes already present in the shower tile as your new faucet will have to match up to those holes, otherwise you need to re-tile.
