What are the important design considerations for concealed showers?
If you are installing a new concealed shower, there are a number of design decisions you should take into account. These include:
- The style of the shower head and taps- on a concealed shower, the only visible details are the shower head and the valves. This means that you should pay close attention to the design and style of these, ensuring that they match the overall design of the bathroom, and the style you are creating. Whether you want a traditional or contemporary bathroom, there are a range of options you can choose from.
- The shape and size of the shower- as with any other type of shower, choosing the shape and size of the shower is an important consideration. Concealed showers can be square, rectangular, or even L or P shaped to add more space in the showering area. Shower enclosures with rounded doors or wedge shapes can also be suitable for concealed showers. However, unlike other types of shower, you may lose some space at the tap end, where the pipework and plumbing will be hidden in the wall. If the wall cavity is not large enough, a stud wall may need to be created.
- Wall and floor options- Shower spaces in general tend to have tiled walls and either tiled floors or a shower tray made from acrylic, porcelain or a solid surface composite.
