Shower Rooms

Luxurious showers are a must-have for many modern homes, whether they are full enclosures or walk-in wet rooms.

Indeed, many people are removing their baths and replacing them with a walk-in shower area, although future house buyers are still likely to expect a family bath. Adding a second shower room or wet room in place of a smaller bathroom is going to add value, however, because they have a perceived high status associated with luxury spa hotels. Shower rooms typically have larger enclosures in a variety of square, rectangular, curved and quadrant shapes, with many people choosing frameless screens for their minimalist style or simple-walk through glass panels. In contrast, a wet room does away with the shower screen and tray altogether and has an open, fully waterproofed area, with water channelled into a single drain, which is super-stylish and contemporary, although not for everybody. With a dedicated showering space, you can opt for a wonderful waterfall shower head, a pulsating power shower or even a hydromassage column. Streamlined shower trays come in many shapes, size and materials, often with built-in, anti-slip properties.
