Shower types

If you're choosing a shower, there are a whole host of different options to consider. What type of shower stall do you need? Do you need a shower stall at all? What type of shower head should you use, and are efficient shower heads less effective than other sorts? If you have a mobility impairment, too, there are other things you will need to consider. Making the right decisions with respect to your shower stall will have an effect on the amount of space you have in your bathroom, how effective the shower will be, and how much maintenance you need to carry out.

Shower screens and shower stalls

There are a surprising number of variations when it comes to shower screens - and an equal number of factors that are likely to affect your choice if you want one.

Wet rooms

Often the most comfortable type of shower is one without a stall at all. Wet rooms are especially useful in small bathrooms and for people with mobility impairments.
