Shower: how to choose?
The shower is a bath fixture used for cleaning the body. It can be installed in a bathtub or as a stand-alone unit. The shower generally consists of a tank (similar to a water heater), one or more controls, and plumbing that brings pressurized water to the showerheads.
The shower is one of the most widely used bathroom components designed to provide convenient personal hygiene, but they can also serve a number of other purposes; in fact, in addition to common household use, many businesses (not just restaurants) use it to provide proper hygiene for people with disabilities by mounting it next to the toilet.
Showers come in many shapes, sizes and materials that make it easy to find one to fit any bathroom. It is an element of the home that offers great utility and can be customized to fit your family's needs.
Showers are developed in several models; first, they can be wall-mounted, ceiling-mounted, or mounted on a 10- or 15-cm up-and-down pole allowing for height adjustment; another important feature is the type of water jet:
- Spraying water jet with cylindrical blower, beautiful to look at and easy to handle; ideal for being able to refresh affected body parts with precision
- Spraying water jet with circular blower, much more common than the cylindrical one but still essential at the design level; this component is the most classic and can be considered to be what turns a simple stall into a shower stall
- Cascade water jet, in this case the jet extends through the showerhead vertically simulating a real waterfall ensuring a muscle relaxing sensation for all parts of the body that come in contact with the jet.
The most common material: chrome-plated brass
One of the first considerations when choosing a shower is the material from which it is made. The materials of the shower are critical to its durability, so it is important to choose the right material.
The most common shower component material is chrome-plated brass, which,due to its durability and resistance to corrosion, has the main advantage of being durable, comparable to stainless steel but at a lower cost. Its durability surpasses most conventional materials used in the construction of large fixtures by combining style and functionality.
Design in control
All the types of showers available are created to be able to give character and personality, all thanks to the study of details from the technical point of view such as the choice of the number of ways at which the mixers are to be installed, where, through these one can control both the temperature and the pressure of the water jet.
Choice that should not be underestimated is where to install the shower compartment; certainly the choice of the shower tray is the one that leaves the most room for imagination, having the possibility of being able to be installed exactly where you want and thanks to this in some design projects it is even placed in the center of the bathroom, accompanied by a ceiling-mounted shower head.
Showers: types for every need
The shower is one of the fundamental elements of any bathroom. In addition to having to be functional and practical, it can also become a design option that should not be underestimated. The many types can meet the various aesthetic needs that a bathroom may have.
