Make functionality a priority
First, it’s important to start by making sure that the shower you choose is functionally viable. Unfortunately, too many inexperienced homeowners get focused on shower models or designs that look or seem appealing at first glance, but don’t really function well in the space they have to work with or for the people who need to use them.
Some shower users may have special needs, such as the elderly, while others may be too big for a small design or too small to get good use from a large design. No matter the needs, it’s important to consider who will be using the shower most frequently and what they might need to get from the shower in terms of performance.
Study a wide range of examples
There are a wide range of examples on the market, so it’s important to do a little research ahead of time. Nowadays, doing research on shower designs is fairly simple with a large abundance of online resources available at our fingertips.
Start by broadly browsing and choosing several examples that you like, and then whittle down your selections to a core handful of options.
Choose materials and styling carefully
While some materials may look nice, the people who actually use the shower may find them uncomfortable or difficult to interact with. Consider also the cleaning process when choosing materials and styles. Some materials are harder to clean than others, and some styles make cleaning a little more challenging. It’s important to strike a good balance between what you find aesthetically pleasing and what functions and performs best in terms of maintenance and regular use.
Consider the fit
It is crucial that you consider the size that you’re working with when it comes to installing a shower. Some shower designs or types rely on a specific average size, or a large size, or a small size. Not all showers fit all sizes. Think carefully about the size that you have at your disposal, both in terms of the size the shower will occupy itself, and also the size of the open surroundings that the people in the room will want to be able to use.
