As a way of literally washing away the day’s stresses very little beats a lovely hot shower in our own bathrooms. Today there’s such a choice in shower fittings that it’s possible to build a bespoke shower area at very little cost. From shower trays, shower enclosures, heads and pumps there’s a multitude of designs and styles to choose from. To create a custom built shower here’s what you have to sit down and consider:
Whether you’d like a rectangular shower tray, a quadrant or offset quadrant shower tray or a basic square version, at Bella Bathrooms we have a huge selection to choose from. Larger bathrooms tend to fare better with the rectangular or offset quadrant shape while the smaller quadrant and square shower trays are more suited to space-compromised en-suites. There’s a new trend for low profile shower trays these days which sit at 45mm in height – around half the size of a standard tray.
It’s perfectly possible to find a shower enclosure to suit most budgets and tastes these days. From walk-in shower enclosures to wet rooms, self-contained shower units and pivot door showers, the range can be quite staggering and, because of that, confusing at times. To narrow down your choice you must first look at the size of shower enclosure your bathroom can take. Next think about its location and third it’s suitability for your overall bathroom décor theme. Once you've chosen your shower you can enjoy accessorising it with shower seats, curtain rails and a shower curtain.
Your choice of shower will depend on your home’s water pressure as certain units need high pressure while others, such as the power shower, operate smoothly on a low pressure unit. Mixer shower units work well with most types of water pressure while shower towers and shower jets require a high pressure water output. Electric showers don’t require connection to a mains water supply so will work if the electrics fail while power showers pay for themselves over time thanks to their smart use of hot water. Shower body jets are your own personal wet massage service.
From large ceiling mounted shower heads to shower hoses and shower riser rails, you can choose how to enjoy your own personal water fall and in which direction you’ll encounter the water. Larger square or circular shower heads add a modern touch to any bathroom and many come equipped with special eco-friendly features to ensure neither water nor energy is wasted unnecessarily.
If you’re keen on a shower tower with jets but don’t have the water pressure to cope with such an installation then here at Bella Bathrooms we sell a range of shower pumps which can easily rectify that situation. And better still, most shower pumps these days are quiet, discrete and will get any shower working to the capacity you’re looking for.
