Shower cabins are one of the most important part of bathroom interior designs, and yet they are often overlooked and passed over due to lack of space. However, we’re here to tell you that no matter how small your bathroom is, having a shower cabin is a crucial functional detail that you must never overlook! Did you know that the constant splashing from the shower water can cause calcium deposits to settle on your precious tile work? But having a shower cabin can reduce this risk manifold, so let’s look at 5 different types of shower cabins you can emulate in your bathroom interiors.
1. Framed with aluminum
Aluminum framed shower cabins are the best because they provide a nice outline for the whole space which can become an awesome design element. The door however is usually left frameless and is wholly made up of glass. You can either open it inside or outside the cabin depending upon the dimensions of your space.
2. Simple glass partitions
Simple glass partitions are one of the most common and popular choices for shower cabins across the world and Singapore is no exception. These are sleek, easy to install and don’t cost as much. They usually have a door to the side that can either open inwards or outwards depending on the layout, arrangement and dimensions of the bathroom space.
3. Corner cabins
Corner shower cabins are also a popular choice – especially for bathrooms that are small but require a lot of circulation space. They also have an aluminum frame and usually have a raised boundary which you have to step into. Some of them have open-able doors while others do not. Some of these even come with sliding doors on both sides to make things more efficient and ergonomic.
4. Half-glass partitions
Half glass partitions are like simple glass partitions – only they do not have a door. They simply have an open space where the door leaf might have been. They’re easy to install and a really popular choice with the Singaporeans. If you want to go the extra mile with their design, you can even have a part of them sandblasted or frosted with a certain customized pattern!
5. The bathtub option
The bathtub shower option is for those who cannot decide whether they want to go for a relaxing bathtub or a shower cabin in their bathrooms. So the most probable and widely applied solution is to have a shower inside of the bathtub. In such cases the user steps into the bathtub to take a shower. It’s not particularly convenient, but it does manage to give you the best of both worlds.
