What are the considerations when choosing a concealed shower for a traditional bathroom?

A concealed shower involves hiding all of the pipework within the wall, so that only the shower head, taps and temperature controls are exposed. Although this is associated with minimalist design, and contemporary and ultra modern bathroom spaces, this can be a good a fit for traditional bathrooms too, as long as some considerations are taken into account. These include:

  • Choosing traditional fixtures- because the shower-head, thermostatic controls and taps will all be visible, you should clearly choose traditional styles of these. This can include cross head taps, a visible wall mounted shower arm, and a large round shower head. These features are synonymous with traditional or period design and can be a great way to accentuate the interior design theme.
  • The colour of the shower fixtures- its not just the shower fixtures themselves that matter, you should also consider the colour. Brass and copper colours can have a more significant visual impact than chrome or steel effect shower fixtures, especially if you want to crate a traditional visual effect.
  • The accessories- in addition, you should think of the other factors associated with shower design, including the shower screen or door, and any in shower storage. Choosing the right accessories here can make all the difference to the result.
