What is a concealed shower?

A concealed shower is one where all of the pipework is hidden inside the walls, floor and ceiling if necessary so that the only exposed parts are the taps and the temperature controls, as well as the shower head.

What are the advantages of concealed showers?

So why would you install a concealed shower? Well, there are a number of benefits to this type of shower, including:

  • Saving space- with no visibly pipework, there is more space directly under the shower-head for you to enjoy. This is a luxurious advantage for spacious showers, and a practical advantage for small corner showers where space can be cramped. This is also more useful for people with mobility or accessibility needs, who may need more water space.
  • Easier to clean- cleaning a concealed shower is simple and straight forward. There is no pipework that can become rusty or damaged, and all you need to clean are the taps, temperature controls and the shower head.
  • Minimalist design- a concealed shower is the perfect option for contemporary bathrooms, where minimalist design is a key feature. This type of shower takes away dome of the visual distraction for a stunning and visually attractive bathroom space.
  • Increased safety- the thermostatic controls and taps on a concealed shower will not heat up. This helps make the bathroom space safer, when compared to other types of shower, that can have hot exposed pipes.
