Installing a new shower: 6 conditions you to follow

Do you know that a well-designed electric shower installation can significantly enhance your everyday shower experience, as well as the overall look of your bathroom? This is why you need to check out the factors that are necessary when you are planning on installing a new shower.

We have outlined a few tips for you below.

  1. What type of design and shower experience do you want?

How long you will be staying in the property should determine what type of look and design your new shower would have. You may have to go for a design that is simple and not so luxurious if you would be contemplating moving in the near future. However, if you would be living there for quite a long time, probably it’s even your own home, then it’s best to choose a shower that is unique and elegant. To have the shower designed to your taste, it means you may have to spend more.

Also, consider the shower experience you want. Do you want the relaxing and gentle rainfall flow experience or the pressurised power shower? The choice is yours.

  1. Do you have enough space?

The area of space you have should also be a deciding factor before you finalise on the shower to be installed. Make sure that you maximise the shower space you have so that you don’t create a claustrophobic shower.

If you don’t have a large room, then you can conclude on installing a walk-in shower tray to transform your everyday shower into a delightful spa experience.

  1. What is the pressure in the bathroom like?

Do you know that the water pressure in your bathroom can affect your shower experience? For instance, having low water pressure in your bathroom may result in a slow dribble instead of a spa-like experience. This is why it would be essential to discuss with your plumber concerning the pressure, shower system and the showerhead.

  1. Is it easy to clean the shower area?

You may have to consider how easy it would be to clean the shower area if it is going to be used multiple times per day. Usually, the handheld showerheads are a wonderful option since they help with general cleaning and also for washing the little children. However, if you don’t want to be spending so much time cleaning the shower area, then we recommend the darker grout option and practical tiles. Porcelain is also excellent when it comes to cleaning and maintenance.

  1. How will the shower function with the rest of the bathroom?

A lot of practicalities have to be considered in terms of plumbing and layout of a new shower. For example, underfloor heating is an excellent option, even if the available space is very small. With the addition of underfloor heating, you won’t have to worry about your room being a wet mess, as it dries any water on the floor. On the other hand, if you want a walk-in shower or wet room, then make sure the towels are not only positioned within reach but also where they will not become wet.

  1. Who will be making use of the shower?

Finally, whoever the user(s) of the shower space is will significantly influence all the features that will be incorporated during the installation process. Is the shower going to be used by teens and children? Or is it a part of an en-suite to the master bedroom? These details will determine the aesthetics, as well as other features involving maintenance and storage.

If the shower is going to be installed for a full house family, then you would have to install a lot of storage for the toiletries, so that the bathroom and shower area won’t be looking cluttered.
