Types of Shower

types of showerChoices, choices

When it comes to selecting the right shower, the whole bathroom environment needs to be taken into account.

Inevitably budget and space will have a large part to play in your decision, but remember your overall showering pleasure can depend on getting this right.

If you are installing a new bathroom it is well worth considering consulting a professional bathroom designer to see if there is a wasted corner that could be occupied by a shower enclosure, alternatively you could use the Bathroom Planner on this site to plan your layout.

The pleasure of stepping into a shower cubicle rather than trying to step over into a bath enhances your showering pleasure immeasurably – particularly as they can accommodate a more powerful shower fixture. Corner showers or Quadrant enclosures are ideal for maximising space.

If you simply can’t live without your bath and you have no room for a shower enclosure then a shower over your bath is your only solution. Opt for a clear glass bath panel to give the maximum feeling of space or a simple concertina shower panel that can be folded back out the way when not in use.

Wetrooms are without doubt the pinnacle of showering luxury allowing you the freedom to choose the most powerful showers on the market. However, this style statement can come at a price. Why not create the wetroom look by sinking a plain, glass shower panel into the tiling in the floor to create a transparent room divider.

Wetrooms are extremely popular on the Continent and are favoured for their minimalist, stylish lines and their ease of cleaning. There are no hidden corners in this type of bathroom that can collect dirt.

To avoid the look of hospital shower units opt for clean simple lines, the less clutter, the better. Large, oversized tiles in the same material on floor and walls will help to add to the minimalist look. This look is heightened when you add a simple, contemporary fixed head shower.
