A modern shower is not only an essential bathroom requirement, it can also make a dramatic and stylish statement in your bathroom. The shower is an often overlooked or undervalued part of the bathroom. Most people spend a lot of time in the shower, and it takes up a considerable amount of space in the room, so there is every reason to turn it into a statement piece that you will enjoy.
At Bathroomware House we stock an impressive range of bathroom fittings from leading manufacturers, such as Methven and Phoenix, to complement all bathroom decors. Whether you opt for a separate enclosure or an over-bath, you can choose from shower arms and heads, rail showers (shower systems on a rail), hand showers, hi-rise showers, wall showers and overhead showers.
Showers come in many forms now from more compact enclosures, that fit into the corner of any bathroom, all the way to massive fully frameless glass enclosures or glass paneled wet areas that have multiple heads and can easily accommodate two people. The two main features that most people focus on are the shower head and the paneling.
The most common heads just extend out of the wall, but many of them come with hoses and rails that allow the head to be adjusted or taken off the wall. There are even raincloud shower heads that literally “shower” water straight down.
The enclosure of the shower is often made of toughened glass. Semi frameless enclosures can be an inexpensive option while fully frameless toughened glass will add a note of sophistication. Many shower areas are tiled and separated with large glass panels, which offers a lot more scope for customization of style and layout.
No matter what effect you are trying to achieve in your bathroom, there is a way to make your shower look amazing, just ask our designers how!
Which Shower Is Right For Me?
Shower Arms and Heads/Roses
Shower arms can give you the reach you require to any shower head. Designed to maximize comfort level and to perfectly fit your shower set up, these shower arms and heads come in different sizes, styles and configurations.
Ceiling shower arms and rain drop shower arms allow the shower head to be set right above you to give the experience of rain. As a case point, the flush mount ceiling shower flaunts an interesting concept and uses twin jets of water that collide and turn into thousands of tiny droplets simulating the effect of rain drops falling softly on your face and entire body.
Rail showers allow you to transform a standard, single-outlet shower into an unforgettable showering experience. These showers are easy to install and don’t require access or alteration of existing in-wall plumbing. Rail showers offer flexibility of a height adjustable shower and come with a movable handset. Offering sleek, minimalist styling and the choice of different spray patterns, these rail showers offer water savings without compromising performance.
Hand showers are connected to the shower unit wall via a flexible hose or tubing and may be installed using a fixed bracket that is attached on the wall in any position. The hand showers allow for freedom of motion when in use and are also ideal for those with limited mobility or for easier bathing of children or pets. Boasting a sleek, minimalistic design to complement all modern bathrooms, this shower type also makes cleaning the tub, shower, and surrounding a simple task.
Shower Screens and Panels
Shower screens are available in several options. They can match your bathroom style and make a big difference on your renovation project. Depending on your bathroom space and décor, you can choose between frameless and semi-frameless shower screens. A frameless shower screen is usually more expensive than the other shower types, but its clean, clear glass will open up your bathroom and add a sense of space to it. Semi-frameless types partially frame the screen, but in a much less conspicuous way than a fully framed screen, commonly with the doors unframed.
