P & L / Square Shaped Shower Baths
Although the bathroom is generally not the focal point of one’s home, most householders nevertheless want a finished bathroom that is both attractive and utilitarian. Whether it’s your own private bathroom or one that is accessible to guests, you want to make it a pleasant and practical space.
Accordingly we offer a variety of fixtures and fittings to achieve just the right balance of form and function, at the right price, no matter how large or how small your bathroom(s) is/are. And the products showcased on these pages are very popular options these days. Read on for a few reasons they’re so popular.
Bath or shower? You get to choose.
Experts of all stripes have long argued about the benefits – health, environmental and otherwise – of showers versus baths. From a water conservation perspective it would seem that showers are the hands-down winners as most showers use significantly less water than baths, particularly if you use a water-efficient showerhead (and yes, we sell those too). Yet the therapeutic value and profound pleasure of a long hot soak in the tub at the end of a grueling day cannot be denied.
So we’ll leave the arguing to the experts. The truth is that most of us prefer to have a choice, which is why it makes sense to buy a bathtub that also allows you to take a shower. A shower bath is typically installed against a wall, and a glass screen is then installed at one end of to create an enclosed cubicle. A fixed head with a mixer shower is fitted to the wall in this area, allowing for either a refreshing shower by standing directly under the showerhead, or an enjoyable soak in a hot (or cool) tub.
And by the way, if you’re worried about water conservation – as we all should be – use a water-efficient showerhead and take shorter showers. Or if you’re taking a bath, fill the tub with just the amount of water you need. Whether you’re a bath or shower aficionado, one of our designer bath models is a very smart choice.
The shape of things to come
As you’ll see when browsing our site, these baths come in several different sizes and shapes so you can find the one to best suit your bath area. Our range includes P shape, L shape and conventional rectangular shape, and most are available with glass screens. Most homeowners in the UK prefer a unit with a screen, for it allows them to quickly shower in the morning, and then have the pleasure of deep soaking in a warm bath after work.
No matter which shape you prefer, we offer you an impressive, state of the art collection that includes our best picks from an array of leading brands.
Brilliant choices when space is at a premium
Many people today – first time house buyers, people who have had to downsize, and others – are dealing with the challenges of a small living space. In many homes the problem is most acute in the bathroom. It’s not as if we need our baths to be large enough for ballroom dancing or roller-skating, but a little extra space would be nice./p>
Herein lies a major benefit of a shower bath: it is a brilliant space saver, taking up considerably less floor area than a separate tub and a cubicle. This makes it an ideal choice for smaller spaces, but it can maximise the use of space in any size bath. So don’t rule out one of our combination models even if you don’t have a tiny room.
