Shower cabins have taken the place of the traditional shower and bath tub combination in many homes. This might be because of the comfort available in having separate areas, the rise in popularity of soaker tubs that tend to beg their own space, or even because this is a simple and effective way to show buyers that the bathroom is larger than it may initially seem. Regardless of the reason, it stands as a good investment for any home owner remodeling a main bathroom to consider investing in a shower cabin. However, there are many different models on the market, and there area few things to think about before picking out which model to place in the bathroom.
The general rule of thumb, especially for sales, is that a bigger cabin is better. This said, the shower cabin should not overwhelm the bathroom and make it look smaller than it really is. Try to find something that will still leave room for a bath tub, sinks, and the toilet.
There are many kinds of cabins, and many different features. There are models with jets, models with seating, with multiple shower heads, and with dozens of different electronic features that can make a buyer’s head spin. Trying to figure out what is best is a balance between necessity and cost. Try to make sure to know what your budget is before going out to find a cabin.
Budget does not just mean looking for a feature poor shower. Think about the plumbing costs – one might have a great deal of cash on hand for a custom shower, but will there be enough to pay an expensive plumber for that job? Even if the owner is a do it yourself pro, he or she should still consider if labor is being figured in to the total cost of the installation.
Between budget, size, and features, one should be able to find the perfect shower cabin. These stalls can be a great luxury in a bathroom, and an even better selling point. Just make sure to think long and hard about what is necessary before actually buying the shower.
