Not all homes are fitted with bathrooms that are big enough. Some houses only have small bathrooms, and the best solution for them is to install a shower pod. You get to have a shower while not compromising the moving space you have in your bathroom for other things such as doing makeup or brushing your teeth. Shower pods are great additions to any small – or even big – bathrooms. You can add them even after several years of using your bathroom. They can be fitted right into your existing bathroom easily.
Shower pods come built in sections, so installing it is a breeze, although you need a professional installer to do the job to ensure that the installation is done correctly and adheres to industry standards. Even if your bathroom is on the top floor of the house, the panels can be easily transported upstairs. It will only take several hours for the installation to be finished, then you can use it.
Shower pods are built so that they do not leak all over the bathroom floor. The installer will guarantee that yours will be installed correctly and that no leaks will ever appear. You don’t have to worry about slipping on the bathroom floor from the water that is seeping out from the shower pod. You can shower all you want knowing that the water will stay in the pod.
Wide range of options
They come in a variety of shapes and sizes. You can place them in the corner, centre or anywhere there is ample space in the bathroom and you will find one that will suit your needs. Usual shapes for shower pods are pentagon, square and quadrant so that each nook of the bathroom can be used as a space for the pod. You can even have one tailor-made for your bathroom. Be prepared to shell out extra money for the customisation though.
Minimal to zero maintenance
Regular shower enclosures require tile and tray maintenance, cleaning and replacement. With a shower pod, you don’t have to do these things. All you have to do is to maintain its cleanliness by wiping the pod down with a clean and dry cloth to remove soap build up.
Shower pods can last you for years. The materials used in manufacturing them have a long life. They can last for up to 60 years. And if you are vigilant in keeping the pod clean, it can even last way beyond the sixty years. Imagine having a vintage shower pod in your home in the future. Their designs also withstand time, so even if you remodel, your shower pod will not look out of place.
If you are thinking of adding a shower enclosure to your bathroom with limited space, then a pod is perfect for you. You don’t need a big enclosure, as long as it fits in nicely, and you still have room to move inside and it does its job of keeping you clean.
