Some Interesting Shower Enclosure Designs

April 15, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 488

Showers form an important part of a bathroom design, in addition to other fixtures and accessories. They offer endless design options for both big and small bathroom suites. Many people favor showers over long baths in a bathtub as they can shower in a jiffy when they are in a hurry with their daily chores. Nevertheless, showers also allow for a time of relaxation after a hectic day. Shower enclosures have become common not only to provide a secluded showering area, but also to add a nice look to the bathroom. Let's discuss about some of the interesting shower enclosure designs.

Glass shower enclosures are the most popular options as they give a neat yet stylish look to the bathroom, regardless of the space constraints. In fact, they don't disturb the visual space in a small bathroom because of their capability to reflect light. Besides, they are either transparent or translucent, and hence, do not block light transmission or hinder the other design elements. Other advantages of glass enclosures pertain to their broad price range and ease of maintenance. Though dirt accumulation on glass is easily visible, it is equally easy to clean the panels of the enclosure. Glass shower enclosures are available in several styles, such as flat enclosures, curved enclosures and stand-alone enclosures. Flat-glass models are common, consisting of flat glass panels for the walls of the enclosure. Curved models allow for clearer views, and stand-alone models are placed in the center of the bathroom, with glass on all sides.

Doorless shower designs are perfect for small spaces, where there is not enough space to accommodate the opening of a shower door. The idea is to create a separate showering space, so that water does not splash to the rest of the bathroom. As they are not completely secluded from the rest of the bathroom, they do not need additional space for storing accessories. Walk-in showers are common doorless designs that offer a myriad of options, in terms of tiling, shower heads, wall designs, and so on.

Portable shower enclosures are a great idea for pool owners and for people who often do outdoor works in their homes. With a shower installed outdoors, they can leave all the mess, such as sandy footprints outside the house. Whether it is for children to rinse after swimming or for you to wind up a messy working day, or for camping, portable shower stalls can be a useful addition to the home. Though there are innovative methods to create your own outdoor enclosures, manufacturers offer several foldable models that can be stored conveniently when not in use.

The traditional shower enclosures, comprising a curtain hung over a curved rod, are being replaced by different types of enclosures and shower stalls, in keeping up with the advancing trends. Glass is predominantly used in combination with plastic anchors and other hardware that adorn the overall enclosure. It is important to use watertight sealants that hold the glass firmly in place. There are specific sealants available for the caulking the area to be installed.
