Shower cabins have grown in popularity over the years. Homeowners who would like a modern touch to their bathroom go for these. Aside from adding a contemporary feel to the bathroom, a shower cabin also has other benefits, such as saving space and easy access. There are also shower cabins that do not just offer the typical shower feature but are also equipped with spa-like features, like steam shower cabins. If you are planning to get one for your home, here are some of the factors to consider ensuring you get the best option.
Size of the Shower Cabin
The size of the shower cabin is one of the most important factors to consider; as you want to make sure that it does not only meet your personal needs, but also fits in your bathroom. Determine the size of the bathroom and the specific area where you wish to have the shower installed. The area where it will be placed must have enough room not just for the shower cabin, but for the plumber to easily get around, including at the back, to work on the cables and pipes. Cables will also be connected on top of the shower cabin so make sure that there’s also enough space for this.
New models of steam showers are being released regularly. These give you even more options when it comes to the features they offer. Aside from the different overhead shower features they have, many also come equipped with water jets, steam jets, radios, and touch screens. This also typically affects the price as the more features offered usually means a higher price, so take into consideration the features that are most important for you.
Bath or Low Step
Steam shower cabins may have a low step or they may come with a bath. Those that come with a low step offer convenient access, which is perfect for those with mobility issues, as well as those who are elderly or pregnant. Those that come with a bath, on the other hand, provide a more relaxing experience, as you can soak in a warm bath while enjoying the steam. This is a good option for those who are looking for a long calming bath, especially after a tiring day at work.
Modern steam showers may have a higher price tag than typical shower cabins, but they are still a good investment, especially if you are looking to experience a spa-like shower in the comfort of your own home. Take the factors listed above into consideration to determine which of the options would best meet your specific bathing needs, and the layout of your bathroom.
