Advantages & Disadvantages
Ditching the bathtub in favour of an elegant shower cabin can give you back the space you need to transform your washroom into the centre of relaxation and calm of your home. Based on a square floor plan, a cubicle will have glass door(s), which are hinged or sliding to allow access to the showering area, and provide the best water protection.
As fewer and fewer people have the time or desire for a daily soak, fitting a cubicle is a practical alternative to a curtained or walled division. In addition to the time benefit, a daily shower utilizes far less water than a bath. The tired plastic curtain and splashes of water on floors would be gone; replaced by efficiently-sized unbreakable glass walls. You can further read about the advantages & disadvantages of Cubicle.
Given that the doors of the cubicle are one of the most often used items, it makes sense to put extra thought to select the right one. The finishing touches on your doors can really make a difference to the overall look, so choose carefully and think about quality here too. Chrome plated handles and frames look nice, but you also need to compare it to more solid materials. Enquire about the warranty offered by the manufacturers and what it covers so you can put your mind at ease as to the quality of the product you're investing in. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to shower units, so think carefully about cheaper models that might not stand up to the high use that showers endure.
