One of the typical responses to renovating a house is to increase space. More full kitchens, huge living rooms, and broaderbathrooms. But going for larger isn’t always the best option to take.
Maximising your bathroom space can be a lot simpler than it sounds. Limiting your drawers and cabinets and opting to use hanging shelves and wall shower fixtures are one of the few ways to make the best out of your limited space. Installing shower cabins have also become a popular option in making the most out of the small area you have. With their sleek and compact nature, shower cabins can be placed in almost any corner of your home and won’t even need that much of a renovation in making it fit in your current bathroom space layout.
More manageable facilities
Compared to having a tub, you don’t need to have a wall fixture installed in assisting you to climb in and out of it. Even with a railing in place, you never know when a freak accident can happen. A visit to the hospital due to faulty installation or a typical slip and fall is not just embarrassing for you but also a blow to your wallet.
Avoiding accidents isn’t just one of a shower cabin’s strong points over purchasing a tub. In buying a shower cabin, you no longer need to go through the hassle of bending over to scrub the bottom, sides, and corners of your tub. Shower cabins are often installed with two glass panes, or one if it’s a quadrant shower enclosure, making it easier to clean and maintain.
Eco-friendly and versatile
A shower makes use of about 12.5 gallons of water. Compared to the average tub that makes use of 25 gallons to a whopping 45 gallons in just filling it up. Choosing a shower will save on your water bills and will allow you to do your part in making your home a greener space. Alternative models of shower cabins can also function as a steam shower. Having it installed and placed in its closed area makes it easier to maintain as you won’t have to worry about steam-proofing your entire bathroom space.
Functionality and adaptability
A renovation means redoing everything from the ground up, but if you don’t have the budget to overhaul your entire home, you’re better off by just changing the tiles instead of adjusting your living space’s enclosures and divisions. Shower cabins are great for smaller bathroom areas as they don’t take that much space and are the perfect fit for smaller homes. A quadrant shower enclosure’s elegant style can be a better fit for bathroom spaces with fewer corners. A square cabin can be your top choice if you have a minimum of 36” x 36” bathroom corner to use. With just a small amount of space, you can install a luxurious and decorative shower cabin which is both stylish, and space conserving.
