Remodelling your bathroom can be a major project, and one that you obviously are going to want to do correctly. But when choosing your fixtures you can't only concentrate on looks and style- there are also practicalities to keep in mind. If you're opting for a free-standing enclosure, whether it's walk in or enclosed, then choosing the correct one is going to be essential, or there could be disastrous results!
Why Shower Trays are So Important
A tray is basically the floor of the enclosure. This is the base that catches and holds water when you're using the enclosure itself. These come in a number of different shapes and styles, as well as different materials, which can make your choices seem rather overwhelming. However, it is important that you decide correctly, since the wrong one can mean some serious consequences.
What Happens when you select a wrong one?
An ill-fitting tray will lead to water leakage, and the possibility of ruining your bathroom floor and any timber joists underneath, which is obviously undesirable. However, there's also the question of space. You'll want to maximise the usable space in your bathroom, particularly since these rooms tend to be relatively small anyway. Buying the wrong one can force you to fit your enclosure in an area that you'd prefer to use in other ways, and can determine where other fixtures can go.
Finally, there's the question of materials. They do come in a variety of materials, some of which are better options for certain conditions. Plastic based trays, for example, are often more slippery than other materials, and therefore might not be the best option for elderly people or families with small children.
It should be clear that the right one is going to be a very important part of your bathroom shopping. If you want to avoid unnecessary expenditure, water leakage and even accidents, and you would like to efficiently use the space in your then you need to think about the specifications for the perfect one at the same time as you are thinking about your enclosure.
