10 Ways to Improve Your Shower:
Are you getting the most from your current shower enclosures? Here are 10 YPS Plumbing
tips to help you transform your shower!
1. Replace Your Old Shower Head with a Rainfall Shower Heads
They look fantastic and provide revitalizing, full-body shower. Also, there can be certain health benefits with rainfall shower heads, as it gives your scalp a break from being blasted with full-pressure, instead providing a gentle rinse of softly falling water.
2. Install a Shower Pump
Some of us prefer the high-power approach however. If this is you, then you could fit a shower pump to your existing shower system. It is easy to do and you will love the powerful, massaging spray that makes your shower feel like a high end luxury hotel.
3. More Outlets - More Options
One of our favourite tips; by adding more outlets to your shower system you can transform your bathroom into a luxury spa. Include a shower handset for a more direct, controllable spray, or install a set of body jets that make your shower not only look more expensive and luxurious, but provide a muscle relaxing, full-body spray.
4. Frameless Shower Enclosures
Why not try a frameless shower enclosure? A sumptuous focal point to your bathroom, frameless showers have a smooth, contemporary look give you that added peace and privacy when you shut the world out and shower in a stylish shower area.
5. A Bath Shower - Versatile and Stylish
Many homes simply do not have the space required to have both a bath and a shower, and so many people use a bath shower mixer to allow themselves both in one setup. However, in order to make this more comfortable and more stylish, you can install a P-shaped bath shower; these are specially shaped bathtubs that widen out at one end to give you plenty of room to manoeuvre while showering, but also lots of room to stretch out and relax when in the bath. There are lots available
6. Upgrade to a Wet Room
Consisting of an open plan shower, a recessed floor and usually beautiful tiles, you can transform your normal shower setup to one of these genuinely breath-taking centre-pieces, with beautiful tiling and a shower screen. A wet room is a true bathroom luxury, and sure to get friends and neighbours talking! We have a guide online to renovating your bathroom into a wet room, however if you do not feel comfortable taking on this job, then we would always recommend hiring a professional.
7. Luxury Shower Cabin
Another luxury option, shower cabins can turn your bathroom into a futuristic space for you to refresh and reinvigorate. Often including body jets and steam options, and sometimes even a bath feature, shower cabins are the ultimate in shower enclosures.
A good way of giving your bathroom an aspirational lift is to cleverly use bathroom accessories. Shower towers can transform your shower into a sleek, contemporary statement shower.
You could also try a bold, statement valve. This would give you the option to go for a more traditional style or a modern style, as there is a whole range of traditional exposed valves, with lots of beautiful metalwork and gorgeous cross head designs. Whatever way you go when accessorising your bathroom, the real trick is to go bold - don't choose a feature to fit in with the shower area, but to define the shower area.
9. Remote Controlled Showers
Remote controlled showers really are the next step in bathroom luxury; you can warm up your shower from a second location, set your shower to a range of slow-rates with a touch of a button, save your favourite settings so you always have your ideal shower, and even turn over to an eco-setting in order to save money and be a little more green.
10. Shower Squeegee
Keeping a simple shower squeegee and giving your shower screen a quick squeegee after each shower can not only save you time in the long run as you get a head start on the cleaning, but can go a long way to having a streak-free shower!
