Shower enclosure: functional, practical and visually an eye-catcher

Shower enclosures are a real alternative to shower curtains. This does not affect the shower when showering, the curtain is not disturbing, nor must it be feared that it comes to a „flood“.

Shower enclosures: installation

Shower enclosures can be installed in many different ways. In general, you have the choice between the following options, but the section of the room must be taken into account:

– Niche: When installing a shower enclosure in a niche is for the splash guardonly one front needed.

– Corner: Extremely space saving and very popular is one shower enclosure in a corner. The so-called corner showeris therefore the ideal choice for smaller bathrooms. Since there are already two walls to the showerit is only necessary to connect the two other pages with a suitable one shower enclosure to provide.

– Walk-in shower: A walk-in shower is a combination of one shower enclosure and a floor-level shower. Due to the open design of the shower, which does not require a door element, you benefit from a very generous cut. A walk-in shower can also be installed in a corner, as in the middle of the room.

– Wall and U-showers: Free-standing showers and U-showers can be mounted in front of a wall. As a rule, the shower is completed with two side panels and a door.

Depending on which type of installation is chosen here, different types of shower are suitable. In general, these variants are available:

– Niche shower
– corner entry
– circular shower
– Room shower
– pentagonal shower
– U-shower

It is also important to decide on a suitable door opening. In general, the following door types are available here:

– sliding door
– sliding door
– revolving door
– Rotary folding door
– folding door
– Flap door
– swing door

In addition, it is possible to select different types of frames. Fully or partially framed models can be used as well as frameless models.

Shower enclosure in the form of a bathtub attachment

However, if there is not enough space for a separate shower in the bathroom, bathtubs are an ideal solution. Such essays are also offered in a variety of variants. So you can, for example, here for a one-piece shower enclosure decide as well, such as for a larger, multi-part shot splash, which is used in corner baths. Whether fully or partly framed or frameless: Also in the area of ​​the bath top you can decide depending on personal taste.

Shower enclosure made of glass or plastic?

Shower enclosures are made of plastic as well as genuine glass. Plastic is lightweight and unbreakable. However, the frames here are usually not very stably constructed. Due to the fact that little and more favorable material is necessary, shower enclosures made of plastic are usually offered quite cheap. In addition, one has here the choice between the most different designs. However, one must note that usually a lower durability is given. For example, if the plastic shower enclosure gets a shock when showering, it can happen that the plastic is forced out of its frame. In addition, such shower enclosures have a lower scratch resistance. So it can come even with a very careful handling to clearly visible scratches. Genuine glass shower enclosures are typically made of safety glass, making these models heavier than plastic dividers. Accordingly, more stable frames are needed here. As a result, a shower enclosure made of real glass benefits from a longer shelf life. Anyone who uses caution when cleaning, can also assume that there are no scratches. Using a rubber wiper, as an example, a real glass shower enclosure is not only cleaned quickly, but even years later looks very well maintained and almost like new. A disadvantage, however, the higher price of real glass shower enclosure affects. This is due to the higher amounts of material and because of the safety glass. Furthermore, of course, also decides your own taste, whether you opt for a shower enclosure made of plastic or real glass.
