How to Save Room With Sleek Shower Baths

Posted by on Apr 16, 2012 | Leave a Comment

Although bathroom renovations address your current lifestyle, design is often dictated by the current space. Do you want a stylish bath, need a convenient shower and lack the space for both? Think about how contemporary and sleek shower bath units can transform your existing space into something spectacular.

Ideal Shapes

Baths are available in a wide range of shapes, including oval freestanding baths, rectangular built ins and a variety of other curved and angled styles. Not all work well for showering.

Consider how you move around in the shower, and take into account the room you need to enjoy the experience. Bath screens mount to the bath rim to create that necessary room, but you need adequate open space around your feet for a comfortable showering experience.

Oriole Square Shower Bath

P-shaped showers, along with keyhole shapes and square shower baths, provide plenty of room while keeping the footprint small. Square shaped shower baths resemble an “L” with a straight bath screen aligning the smaller portion near your drain and shower head. Efficient and ultra modern, this angular shape can be fitted into the corner or used as a room divider with two bath screens attached.

Round shapes, like the Phoenix Napoli shower bath, invite you to soak away your stresses in the deep waters, while also providing a place for quick showers before work.

Consider the Location

Shower baths must be properly placed for maximum convenience. Soaking in the bath is a relaxing experience, surrounded by soft lighting, a nice view and your favourite bath accessories. A beautiful bath may be the focal point of your bathroom design, and with the right location, a shower bath can also claim top spot.

Many shower bath designs require two walls. Look for a location where natural light casts a glow on the bath and storage shelves or vanities remain within arm’s reach. Leave room outside of the shower bath for comfortably (and safely) climbing in and out, and avoid blocking any cabinet doors or entrance doors.

Bath screens help to create an open feel, even in the smallest bathrooms. Opt for a frameless design wherever possible to maintain that spacious atmosphere.

Shower baths help you to create an efficient, comfortable and modern bathroom with all of the desired features. Ideal for guest bathrooms and the master ensuite, look for a shower bath design that suits your style and décor to make your new bathroom more functional.
