As city houses get smaller and smaller with rapid urbanisation, modern bathrooms are evolving quickly. Architects today are faced with immense design challenges of providing complete bathroom solutions with superior space optimisation besides catering to the urban lifestyle needs where the bathroom turns to a ‘personal space.’ Trying to make everything fit in a super small bathroom is like doing a giant crossword puzzle.
Architects are therefore, viewing the bathroom even more minutely – by dividing it into three zones – the basin area, the water closet area and the shower area. Being the largest of all, the bathing area is of course the most important. This is the wet zone. It is this place which makes the entire bathroom wet, unhygienic, slippery and dangerous and, requires maximum management. There’s nothing more annoying than entering a wet bathroom and getting your feet soggy and the bathroom dirty. If you are wearing rubber flip-flops or slippers, it can be worse, for you can slip and fall in a wet bathroom.
Therefore, among the challenges: separating the wet and dry areas in a bathroom by restricting the water inside the wet room only; making it safe, bacteria free and hygienic; and turning it into a sanctuary after a hard day’s work in office, is possible by simply configuring a shower enclosure. Once the shower enclosure is in place, configuring the commode or the toilet and the basin becomes easier.
Shower Enclosure has become an integral part of the modern bathrooms today. Besides serving the functional purpose of keeping the bathroom dry and bringing in hygiene and safety almost instantly after installing, it gives elegance and style to the bathroom. It takes the aesthetic of the bathroom to the next level.
Use Toughened Glass :
Glass is a major component in a shower enclosure and therefore, utmost care should be taken while using glass in shower enclosures. They should be made of the highest quality toughened or tempered glass. Raw float glass or heat-treated glass should never be used, which could shatter and result in serious accidents. It is therefore, considered sometimes safe to purchase a shower enclosure from one of the leading brands like Jaquar.
Jaquar uses highest quality of toughened or tempered glass for its shower enclosures, manufactured in their own fully automated state-of-the-art tempering unit, as per the Indian and European safety norms. These standards ensure that the glass passes through stringent quality checks ensuring consistency and safety. Jaquar shower enclosures also undergo special hydrophobic treatment on the inner glass surface, which repels water, oil, soap and helps to keep the glass clean with minimum effort. It prevents bacterial growth, lime-scale build up and water spots on the glass. Jaquar also offer different glass options to choose from like: clear, extra clear, frosted and textured glass with a variety of patterns. These patterns add elegance to your bathroom décor and provide uniqueness to your enclosures.
Remodelling your bathroom?
