When it comes to bathroom design, style matters! But finding that mix of style and functionality is hard. Luckily for you, we have written this guide to help you decide on the best steam showers to pick for your bathroom. No matter the size, shape or colour, there is something for you.
Why Does Steam Shower Design Matter?
Steam showers are designed in a unique way to suit the majority of bathrooms in the UK. Brands like Insignia offer a plethora of customisation options to choose from. You can change the colour of the back panel, frame and even choose on the type of glass finish. Vidalux, another leading brand in the UK offer slick showers, with a clean design that simply match tahe look and feel of your bathroom. But how do you choose the right design?
It is all based on the design of your bathroom. If you have a small bathroom, chances are you will have less light coming through to spread around. A larger bathroom on the other hand can easily feel empty and make you want to fit a number of units to fill the space.
The key is to find the right balance and use the design of your steam shower to compliment the style of your bathroom. According to our in-house customer service team, the most popular showers for our customers with smaller bathrooms are mirror-finished steam showers. Let me explain why.
To help you find the most ideal steam shower, we have built a shower finder to help you. Here is a demonstration:
The Importance of Bathroom Lighting
Some bathroom design experts suggest that adding a light directly above a mirror will have a negative effect on the overall look of your bathroom and even make you look older when using that mirror. What a lot of people fail to mention is the importance of using mirrors to bounce light around your bathroom.
If you have a small bathroom or one with dark tiles, you can balance the lighting by choosing a steam shower with a mirror finish. your elegantly finished shower will sit in the corner and bounce light around your bathroom to make it look wider and brighter.
Choosing The Right Tray Shape
After you pick a colour, you then have to decide on the tray shape. You have a number of options to choose from here; rectangular, quadrant, quadrant offset, square and p shaped. For most of our customers who have limited space, the quadrant shower is the best pick.
Quadrant steam showers are perfect for small bathrooms and spaces. They can fit into a tight space and take up minimal space to ensure you can still design your bathroom and add any other features you desire.
A lot goes into creating the perfect bathroom. From matching the cabinets and vanity units, to deciding on how much light to bounce around. There’s also the very important question.
