If you are in the market for a shower and have a limited space
to use, a common and powerful ally is the corner shower kit. These specifically designed shower kits can fit
in most any space, and can add that extra shower space you have been in desperate need
This elegant addition comes in a variety of styles, and price
ranges. Designed to be installed directly against wall tiles, most bathrooms have the space to incorporate a
variety of corner shower kits. Normally rectangular or square in shape, the basic layout leaves few options,
although there are different hexagon and other shapes that are really not practical.
So what sizes does the corner shower kit come in? The sizes of
corner shower kits (also often called a corner shower enclosure, unit or stall) are normally smaller than
conventional showers, and are designed specifically for this purpose. The more popular sizes range from 32”
wide by 32” long by 72” tall, to 42”x 42” by 72”. Although the range of sizes is limited, so normally is the
available space to install them.
Within this small space comes a large value. There are a
range of different options to choose from, from trimmings to glass to the doors. Take into account the space
you are installing, and choose between sliding doors, for those with limited space, and doors that can swing
open. Some people prefer each of these options with their corner shower enclosure, but regularly it comes
down to the space you have to work with.
After choosing the door, figure out what style of glass you would
like. With options between stained glass and see through, think about the privacy you have and what you need. Some
people like the open feeling of see through, while others need the privacy provided by something else. Remember to
take this into account before purchasing your corner shower unit.
The last thing to remember is the trimmings. There are a number of different options
that you can choose from, including the make and style of your knobs, crossbar and faucets. Traditionally, a chrome
or steel look has been the most normal and obvious choice. These handle the constant wet and humidity better than
most other options, and rarely crack or chip throughout extended use.
Although other options of corner shower kits are available, in this case it is best
to go with what has been shown to work best over time. If you feel the need to spice up the look, you can always
have glass or crystal handles and faucets, but make sure they go with the overall feel of your bathroom. Spicing up
a single piece may simple throw off the balance of the room, and give an undesirable effect.
