Can a concealed shower suit a traditional bathroom?

A concealed shower can be a very contemporary fixture, with modern mixer or thermostatic valves and a square, large rainfall head. However, these are only the external design choices. A concealed shower can easily be chosen to suit the most traditional of bathrooms, as long as you opt for the right taps and shower head.

Can a concealed shower be installed in an en-suite bathroom?

A concealed shower can be the perfect option for a small bathroom like a cloak room or en-suite. This is because there are no exposed pipes, and no large boxes on the wall, which can save floor space inside the shower itself, making it a great choice for small spaces.

Is a concealed shower difficult to maintain or service?

Once the shower valve has been installed in the cavity wall, the valve filters and the thermostatic cartridge are accessible from the front. This means that there is no rear access required, and a concealed shower is actually just as easy to service as any other shower product.

Are concealed showers suitable for family bathrooms?

Concealed showers can be a great option for family bathrooms for a number of reasons. These showers are often fit with a thermostatic valve that automatically controls the temperature of the water. This can reduce any risks of burning small children by accident. At the same time, these showers also have no exposed pipework, which means that small children are less likely to accidentally bang their heads in the shower. All in all, a concealed shower can be the bet option for family bathrooms.
