If your bathroom is having a make-over, one of the questions uppermost in your mind will be: shower or bathtub? Read the article to find out which suits your designer bathroom the most!
After a hard day’s work, is jumping in the shower and washing off all that stress you built over during the day all you can think of? A bathroom with a shower enclosure is a must-have for people with a hectic lifestyle, who only have enough time to freshen up with a quick shower between one busy commitment and the next, perhaps singing along to their favourite tunes thanks to Amazon Alexa.
Aside from comfort, a shower contributes to enhancing the value of a bathroom’s style: details such as hinged, folding, sliding or revolving doors become the “star feature” of the furniture, also satisfying a taste for excellent aesthetics.
Have you ever heard of walk-in showers? This is one of the latest trends in modern bathrooms, distinguished mainly by the absence of a shower tray and shower door, which makes for easy seamless access. As for the structure, another asset of a open-plan shower are the exclusive glass or stone walls which lend the whole wet room a sense of luxury, bringing to mind the furnishings typically found in spas.
The simplest way to turn your bathroom into your very own oasis of relaxation is to fit a free-standing bathtub with metal feet or gem taps in the middle of the room or near a window.
If you enjoy a long, hot soak, creating the right mood with a few scented candles for soft lighting, then take into consideration the built-in bathtub: this type of tub can be customised in terms of finishes and dimensions, allowing you to carve out a small niche to display your favourite creams and lotions so you feel just as if you were at the spa.
