Self contained shower cubicles were my passion. So when I shifted to my city apartment, the first thing I wanted to install in my bathroom was 2 cubicles for both shower rooms. This got me on a hunt to find the perfect solution that fit the style and décor or my bathroom. A friend of mine advised to check on line marketing sites for selection and I found a generous amount of sites all offering great deals and showers, however I wanted something a little more designer and I also wanted to see it in person. I was looking for easy installation to keep my renovation cost under my total budget.
Self contained shower cubicles are easy to put together within a minimum time with no extra cost. They are shock proof and easy to clean and maintain due to the high quality composite materials they are usually made of glass or acrylic. They should not have problems of discoloration or staining that will create future maintenance or problems, which may require having to pay a professional to sort the problem out. Finally after going through various catalogues and on line product reviews, I finally selected a manufacturer who provided two elegant self contained shower cubicles for my bathrooms. If you have a small bathroom that has limited space and you do not want to make the room feel too busy, the best option is to go for a shower unit as this will utilize the space available. You can fit them in a corner which is known as a corner unit, or alternatively you can fit one across a wall which is called a wall unit. As they are so small, this allows you to put other features into the bathroom
They are usually made of toughened glass with double sliding doors. Mine were fitted with strong chrome finished aluminium frames and acrylic trays for style and elegance. Another feature that caught my attention was the stainless steel frame under the shower tray which was suitable for our tropical climate! For my second bathroom I opted for a swinging glass enclosure that fit perfectly and looks incredible under halogen down-lighting. Make sure you choose a high quality unit that runs on smooth wheels to take the load and for silent operation. They are extremely easy to install without any hassles and the result is that you can definitely look forward to a nice long relaxing shower in them!
