How to Choose a Shower Bath

Before looking into a brand-new shower bath there are a few things that you need to consider. In this article, we are going to be summarising some of the many benefits that shower baths boast as well as a few pointers when it comes to purchasing one.

Why should you consider a shower bath?

Shower baths are a more cost-effective solution to buying a separate bath and shower enclosure. Many shower baths come complete with a bath screen and taps, all that you will need to buy is a shower unit. Compare this to having to buy a separate shower, shower enclosure, shower tray, bath, and taps; you will soon start to see the costs begin to mount up.

Furthermore, shower baths are an excellent way to make the most of your bathroom space. They are a good addition to a family bathroom as they can cater for all age ranges; a spacious shower enclosure for adults and a large bathing area for children.

L Shaped or P Shaped Shower Baths?

Many straight baths can have a shower fitted above them. However, L and P shaped shower baths are specifically designed to create the best showering and bathing experience. P shaped shower baths and L shaped shower baths are popular as they provide extra space and a screen at one end.

Left hand or right hand?

You will need to decide whether your bathroom can accommodate a left hand or right-hand bath. The best way to determine this is to imagine your space from above. Firstly, you want to pick the spot where you will be installing the bath. Is the short leg of the leg of the L or the loop of the P facing left, or right? Once you have figured this out you will be able to decide with confidence.

Bath Panels

A shower bath would not be complete with bath panels. Bath panels allow you to complete the look of your shower bath seamlessly. Bath panels come in a variety of finishes and can be matched to existing appliances in your bathrooms. We suggest reading through the specifications of bath panels thoroughly to make sure that they are compatible with your chosen shower bath.

Adding a premier finish to a shower bath

The premier finish is a surface that is added to the exterior of the bath and improves durability and longevity. The strength that a premier finish provides is similar to traditional, cast iron baths but with all the benefits of acrylic. Premier finishes not strengthen your bath, they also provide insulation. This means that the bath will have better heat retention and you won’t find yourself heating bath water back up or refilling a bath. The Premier Finish material is naturally glossy, and easy to clean, which keeps your bath looking its best. The premier finish will give your bath a 30-year guarantee.
