SHower Cabinets have become a standard feature in many bathrooms. Their main function is to hold shower accessories like soap, shampoo, conditioner and other items required for a good bathing experience. Customized shower cabinetry allows one to personalize his bathroom to his tastes. This is possible by using different themes, colors and materials to construct shower cabinetry. In this article I am going to discuss the basics of creating a custom shower room with a shower cabinet. I hope that after reading this article, you will be able to decide if this is the right solution for your bathroom.
DEXTERIA: An introduction Shower Cabinets are generally small cabinets fitted against the walls that, in contemporary bathrooms, are used to store only the shower, toilet and bathtub. Shower doors can be made from several different types of materials. Some are constructed as freestanding units, while others are constructed like traditional bathroom glass cabinetry and fitted with different types of doors.
Glass Shower Enclosures: these are the most common type of enclosure and are available in different designs and materials. They consist of a frame made of tempered glass or toughened acrylic. A clear or frosted glass panel is attached to the front of the frame. These types of enclosure can be purchased from home improvement stores and are fairly easy to assemble. You can also get them custom made depending on your specifications and budget. Some people opt to order ready-made glass shower enclosures but this may not always be the best idea if you want to buy a unit with a higher quality or style.
Frameless Shower Enclosure: this is an ideal unit for smaller bathrooms where you don't have to make much space at all. It has a sliding door that is attached to the frame just like a typical shower enclosure. The glass panels slide open and shut and it gives the room an open feel. Frameless shower enclosure does require more space than the framed type.
Framed Shower Enclosure: these units are a bit bigger than the frameless ones. The front glass panels of these units are built in a similar way as a regular frameless shower door installation. Only the top and bottom part of the unit is constructed of glass panels. It doesn't have any hinges or latches and the glass panels are secured in place using screws. These are often used in bigger bathrooms since they take up more room.
Shower Tray Enclosure: it's another great option for those looking to install a wet room in their homes. The shower tray enclosure works great in homes where there is limited space for installing a bath. You can opt to go with a simple wet room shower tray or you can go with a more ornate design.
Glass Doors and Windows: these are the two most popular choices for bathroom space decoration. There are many options for you to choose from when choosing between glass doors and windows. The great thing about both of these different types of decorations is that you can go with them depending on your personal preference. Some people prefer the traditional look of a glass door or window, while others want to break with the norm and go with a different type of material.
Bathroom Floor: this refers to the thickness of the floor you have installed. Measure the total measurement of the room along the edges of the walls. For a corner installation, look for an inch of room around the edge of the bathroom floor. This measurement is needed in order to fit the various pieces of furniture you will be placing in the room.
