It’s an exciting time when you are renovating your bathroom, particularly as you anticipate its brand-new look once all of the decorating is done and dusted. The vital component of any new fittings from BathEmpire is a good shower; after all, it is the one thing that many of us will use the most. How can you ensure that the shower you choose is stylish, functional, and fit for purpose? This article aims to find out.

First of all, you should remember there are different types of showers to consider, and the type you choose will influence your bathroom’s image substantially. Mixer showers are perfect for homes with high pressure, and they work by combining cold and hot water seamlessly to reach the temperature you require. These units are also ideal for the image conscious, as you can choose to have the shower mounted on your bathroom surface along with the piping, or flush so only the valve is showing.

Even though the appearance of your shower in the bathroom is a top consideration, it’s more important to select something functional and safe for your family to use. By choosing a thermostatic shower, you can also ensure that the temperature of the water from your shower won’t fluctuate unexpectedly when water is being used in other parts of your house. An additional safety feature of thermostatic showers can be automatic temperature regulation should water flow change quickly, another convenient feature for you to consider.

We all want our bathrooms to have the ‘wow’ factor, and investing in a good-looking shower doesn’t have to break the bank. One way to keep a shower looking newer for longer is to choose a unit with a rub-clean nozzle, which will prevent limescale from building up over time.

Finally, if you are planning to install a shower enclosure, there are a few things that you should plan before making a purchase. When selecting a shower cubicle for your bathroom, size matters, and you don’t want your enclosure to consume most of the floor space. When browsing online for a cubicle, make sure you note down the dimensions of potential purchases and measure it out in your bathroom accordingly; particularly to ensure that your chosen enclosure isn’t too wide or tall for the space you have allocated. After this, you should compare and contrast the different aluminium and tempered glass enclosure designs available, selecting one that fits in perfectly with the décor you have chosen so far.

In order to give your shower a fantastic appearance, you need to think about whether you are going to tile your bathroom, as this will need to be completed before your cubicle is installed. If you haven’t done this already, you will be spoiled for choice at the designs on offer.

As you can see, getting the right look for your bathroom involves making a lot of difficult choices. It will all be worth it in the end, though, particularly when you have a stylish shower that’s aesthetically pleasing as well as safe.
