Exciting Showers Fixtures Scream Artistry, You can become your own Van Gough with these simple steps
The most exciting part about remodeling the bathroom (aside from enjoying its completion) is selecting the fixtures that'll bring even the most boring lavatory to a place of exquisite beauty. Shower enclosures are examples of such fixtures, and these can outshine any dull tub any day.
Whether you install an oblong, square, or quadrant shower enclosure, your bathroom will literally scream "artistry" with one of these fixtures and conserve space at the same time. After all, a shower enclosure surrounds a small area dedicated to a quick suds job - not space that may never be used, as with a luxurious tub or vat for two.
For example, you could install a square & rectangular shower enclosure in a corner, or you could get a little creative and install it right in the middle of the bathroom! In the middle of the bathroom, a shower enclosure becomes the center of attention, while occupants walk around it to do other things (like groom hair, dress, put on cosmetics, spry on perfume, etc.) right on out the bathroom door to work, school, or wherever.
Choosing a shower enclosure sure seems easy enough, but make the wrong choice and your bathroom will be marked for life. This is why you should take your time when deciding which shower enclosure to install. You need to do some research, and enlist the help of a professional. To get you started, here are some basic guidelines.
Types of shower enclosures
The type of shower enclosure you choose should depend greatly on how spacious your bathroom is. Shower enclosures with bi-fold doors save space. These types are usually adjustable. The door opens and closes in a way that doesn't intrude into the room. This shower enclosure is very ideal for tight spaces.
If you have a bigger bathroom space, then choose a ‘quadrant’ shower enclosure. Such a design can be placed in any spacious shower corner. These types typically feature curved pivot doors and attractive aluminum frames. Quadrant shower enclosures are very stylish and chic. They can add instant elegance to big bathrooms.
Modular shower enclosures
As a general rule, you should always purchase shower enclosures that come as modular systems, so that you can easily adjust them to fit a compact bathroom in a small city apartment or a sprawling bathroom in a large country house. Modular shower enclosures are actually quite common these days. Just visit any home depot shop to talk to an authorized representative. They usually accommodate requests for custom made shower enclosures (for a higher price, of course). They will typically visit your home to do the measurements and will install the enclosure free of charge once it is done.
Shower enclosure materials
Also be sure to choose only the best materials for your shower enclosure. The most common ones are toughened safety glass and fiberglass. Frames come in different materials and designs, too. Mid-range shower enclosures have aluminum frames; while luxury showers enclosures have chrome, silver or gold frames.
