As a result, we have produced this guide to the do’s and dont’s of installing a concealed shower.
What are the important do’s and don’ts when installing a concealed shower?
A concealed shower can be a great option for large and small bathrooms in contemporary or traditional styles. However when installing a concealed shower there are a number of things to bear in mind first, including these do’s and don’ts:
Do consider the style of the concealed shower valves
On a concealed shower, the only part of the shower that is visible is the control panel and the valves or taps. As a result, it is crucial that you choose a control panel that suits that style of your bathroom space. Traditional, contemporary, rustic or sophisticated, there are a number of options available to suit any home in any style.
Don’t forget the necessary space
When installing a concealed shower, a gap behind the shower will be necessary in which to hide the pipework. This can mean channeling into an existing wall or building a stud wall that provides the right depth for the fixtures and plumbing.
Do choose a professional installation team
Installing a concealed shower can bring a number of advantages to your home and your bathroom, but this needs to be installed by a professional team. A concealed shower takes more installation work than a standard shower fitting because of the hidden nature of the plumbing and fixtures. If this is not installed to a high standard then several problems can occur including leaks within the wall cavity.
