There’s long been a debate surrounding whether you should get a shower or a bath within your home. Especially if you’re working with a limited amount of space, you want to know the pros and cons of having either. Ultimately, the choice is completely down to you and your personal preferences. Here’s some facts that will help you choose which one is best for you:
The thing that most people like about baths is how they make your bathroom look. They give a classic and luxurious look to any bathroom, especially if you decide to go for a free-standing bathtub.
Another strong benefit of having a bath is that it is very relaxing. After coming home from a long day of work, you can look forward to filling up your bathtub with warm water and can add a little bit of extra luxury with aromatherapy oils or bath salts to help ease any muscle aches.
Baths are a big benefit for families and the elderly. It makes the experience fun for the kids while giving assurance to the parents that they are getting clean. Elderly people may find it easier to use than a shower. It’s important to consider this if you are thinking of renovating and trying to decide between a shower or bath, as not having a bath may impact how attractive your property will be in the future when you put it up for sale.
It saves space in your bathroom. If you’re living in a small home or an apartment and don’t have the luxury of space in your bathroom, a shower is the perfect option as you can easily set up a shower to fit in a corner.
Showers save time and water. Running a bath in the morning is time consuming, especially when you need to head out of the door quickly. It involves waiting for the water to fill the tub and then draining it afterwards and cleaning up any spillage. Every time you have a bath, you will use the same amount of water needed to cover your body. With a shower, you can have a quick 5-minute shower and use less water than you would normally with a bath. However, it’s important to note that you can still use a lot of water in the shower if you are taking a long shower with the water running constantly.
You have much more variety in choosing what kind of shower design you want to fit the style of your home. Even if you decide to do away with the bath, you can still add a touch of luxury to your bathroom with a modern designed shower. Shower enclosures can be designed with pivot, Inline, sliding shower doors and more. You can pick a shape to suit your style such as a simple square, rectangle, quadrant or pentagon. There’s also the option to create a walk-in shower or even turning your bathroom into a wet room.
Modern showers come with an array of other features including steam features and Bluetooth integration. You have the choice of having simple overhead detachable handsets, multi-jets that can cover any part of your body, various types of water pressures, built-in radios, and there are even showers that use LED lights to change the colour of the water.
