A nice, new shower enclosure might sound like an expensive purchase, but actually the long-term benefits make the initial outlay seem trivial. It pays sometimes to splash out (no pun intended) on new innovations that will bring you happiness and pleasure. Let’s have a look at a few of the things you should be mindful of when choosing a new model of shower:
Product Features and Design
Obviously, different manufacturers offer different features and designs. Some units offer ozone sterilisation that kills and purifies bacteria; others include foot massage features and a plumb tray to hold essential oils. There are also those that come with a seat to reduce tensions on your legs from standing. Some other features that you should look for are LED lighting, water softeners, wireless controls, shower guards, monsoon rainfall effects, and audio systems. Don’t forget to check out the full specifications to know if your chosen unit provides the features that you need.
Purchase a unit from a trusted brand, manufacturer, and supplier. Costs of steam enclosures can be high, even more so if you add a number extra features to them. However, searching for a cheaper one may also give you a low-quality, inconvenient relaxation session. With this, investing in a much costlier unit from a reputable brand is a wiser move to ensure quality and customer care in the long run.
If you are buying locally, consider a showroom to better see the make and model of the unit. And if you opt to shop online, make sure to do your homework and research thoroughly about the brand and manufacturer of the cabin. A good place to start is with a reputable retailer like www.jtspas.co.uk. Look for the merchant’s shipping and return policies. Contact their customer service and ask about the important details of their services. Lastly, check if the unit has been certified and tested by an independent standards organisation.
One of the most common reasons why many people don’t buy steam showers is due to their size. Thus, if you don’t have sufficient room to install the cabin, it would not be practical to purchase one. Consider footprints and body sizes of the people who will walk to and from the area where you wish to install the unit. Will the size overcrowd the space if you would pursue the installation or not? How many people use the apartment or the room you are planning to have the steam enclosure in? If you’re not sure, then ask your supplier – they’ll be happy to help and have probably been asked the same question before, so see if there are any FAQs related to the unit you are thinking of purchasing on their website.
The key is to really know what you are looking for in a shower, and often a great place to find information is from your friends. Somebody you know may even have a steam enclosure that you can try. At least you’ll have first-hand experience before you make a purchase.
