Is it time to ditch the bath for a shower?

We always get asked by our customers whether it's the right decision to ditch the bath for a shower. When it comes to designing and planning your dream bathroom, you need to make sure that you are using your space effectively. Ditching the bath has many great advantages, but it does all depend on the individual home and the user's habits. Here are three advantages:

Showers use less water than baths:

Everybody knows that running a bath uses a lot of water. Generally speaking, a 10-minute shower will use significantly less water than a soak in the tub would. The Hansgrohe Crometta E 240 Showerpipe Thermostatic Shower has a superb flow rate, therefore, saving energy and water usage!

Removing the bath gives you more floor space:

Baths generally take up more floor space than a shower would. So, if you do replace the bath for a shower, you only have to think about the floor size of the shower tray. Wetrooms Online have the largest selection of wet room shower trays / floor formers for creating a walk-in shower floor. All wetroom kits, formers and trays are suitable for use by both professional trade fitters and competent DIY installers alike.

Showers are more accessible:

Getting in and out of the bath can sometimes be difficult, especially for users where mobility is an issue. With showers, the process is much more easier and accessible. In addition, you can opt for shower seats and accessories such as grab rails to further enhance the users’ showering experience.

Wetrooms Online have a large selection of shower seats and accessories from leading brands such as AKW, Jackoboard, and wedi.
