Diwali is here. The “What should we get this Diwali?” question has popped up in your head again. Is it going to be the same old curtains or jewellery or clothes and sarees or one of those gadgets – another TV or music system for the bedroom? You’ve even gifted your family a car on one of the Diwali’s or travelled to exotic places. Looking for something new this time? How about a shower enclosure to pamper yourself?
If the idea of remodelling the bathrooms seems a little intimidating for a Diwali gift to your family, installing just shower enclosures could be a great way to give your old bathrooms a new, elegant look. Besides taking the aesthetics of the bathroom to the next level, it can give your bathrooms that functionality edge by keep your bathroom clean, dry, safe, and hygienic.
Stimulate your senses:
You will agree that taking a shower is one of the most revitalising experiences after a hard day’s work, besides starting you with a bang in the morning. It works wonders on your body and mind and refreshes you – a vital need for urban lifestyle.
Better Space Optimisation:
Besides catering to the urban lifestyle needs where the bathroom turns to ‘personal space,’ shower enclosures result in superior space optimisation of the bathroom. It has become an integral part of the modern bathroom and it has strong reasons to be.
Why is water everywhere?
The trouble is, water doesn’t always stay where it is supposed to. The two biggest causes of water winding up on the bathroom floor everywhere are poorly fitted shower curtains that do not restrict the water in the shower area and wet feet are. Most slip and fall accidents that occur in the home, happen in the bathroom when you are coming out after a shower; or maybe when you are entering one with a wet floor. So the problem lies with wet floor, wet feet and a shower curtain that isn’t doing a great job of keeping the rest of the bathroom dry.
Keep wet floors dry to avoid bathroom accidents:
While you can mop the water from the wet floor after bathing to keep things dry, but ensuring it dry after every bath can sometimes be challenging. In addition, finding a shower curtain that would ensure that no water leaks onto the dry area of the bathroom floor is nearly impossible. Unless you have a bathtub in place and minimise the leak by hanging a curtain liner that falls inside the tub and a second decorative liner that falls outside.
Wet floor means dirty floors.
If you forget drying the bathroom floor, you might need to clean it over again. Wet surfaces attract dust and dirt particles much more easily than dry ones, which you bring along with your shoes and bare feet every time you visit your bathroom. In addition, you risk getting ugly footprints on the floor. Find a dry mop to go over the wet floor to avoid dirty unhygienic conditions. Moisture offers ideal conditions for bacteria to grow.
Shower enclosures a wonder solution
The ideal solution to the problem would be a shatter-proof glass shower enclosure for the shower area rather than a leaky shower curtain which create a slip and fall hazard, especially for elderly people and the young ones of the house, who are more prone to bathroom accidents. They significantly reduce chances of any mishap in the bathroom, as the glass panels ensure that there will be no water on the floor by separating the wet and dry areas.
After a bath, you step out on a towel or a mat to keep your feet dry, so no more water dripping on the dry area of the bathroom outside the enclosure; and that means less clean up required after your shower. The glass shower enclosures are made of special toughened, tempered, safety glass, which make them impact resistant – they are five times stronger than regular annealed glass – and turn to harmless shards if they ever break, which is very few and far between. If a shower enclosure glass door ever breaks, which can be due to improper installation, the safe thing to do is throw a large towel over the shards so you can exit safely.
To avoid slips inside a shower enclosure, try tiles with a slightly uneven surface (such as bumpy smaller tiles, rather than large, smooth squares) that feet can grip onto. You can also have a good gripping shower mat laid on the floor. Besides install well-anchored shower grab bars into the walls of the shower area, instead of using the towel racks for support.
Shower enclosure an integral part of modern bathrooms.
The advantages of shower enclosures are many as they help in keeping the bathroom dry, hygienic and safe, restricting the water inside the wet room only, thus keeping it clean and making it bacteria free. In the marketplace the options to choose a shower enclosure are many. There are many unbranded manufacturers where the assurance of quality of material used and after sales service could be an issue. Therefore, it is suggested you go with a brand which is affordable and gives you the much needed after sales customer service when required.
