Functionality and Convenience
Corner shower enclosures are an excellent choice for those who value functionality and convenience. Moreover, if a corner glass shower unit also features a frameless design, it automatically turns your bathroom into a fashionable and ultra-modern space. Actually, shower corner is a space in the bathroom, formed by two walls perpendicular to each other. In fact, some people even don’t fence such a shower corner, especially when it’s near the bath. However, it’s not aesthetic and not hygienic. Here the best decision! is to install a visually lightweight and elegant corner frameless glass shower unit in order not to let water overflow the whole bathroom.
Obviously, it’s possible to choose among a great variety of corner shower unit designs. And the choice will largely depend on the bathroom layout. That’s because the availability of one or more load-bearing walls or structural wall partitions in the bathroom is a matter of the huge importance. Do you still guess whether to choose a classic version of a conventional bath or a frameless glass shower enclosure? You need to understand all the advantages of the latter option.
Advantages of Corner Shower Enclosures
There are the following advantages of the frameless corner shower enclosures:
- The glass construction takes the smallest possible space which is extremely crucial if your bathroom is small.
- Such a glass shower unit helps significantly reduce the water consumption. To fill the bath, you need five times more water.
- The time required for taking a shower is much less than for taking a bath. This also enables you to save water and, consequently, your money.
- It’s possible to use space saved in the bathroom due to the corner shower unit placement for installation of additional devices and structures.
- You get contemporary bathroom interior design.
Deep Shower Tray
For those people who can’t imagine their lives without taking a bath, the manufacturers have invented a very convenient option, that is, a deep shower tray. Of course, for an adult person, it will be impossible to fully lie down in such a shower tray like in the bath. But taking into account all the advantages of the corner glass frameless shower enclosures, it’s hard not to give them preference when planning a repair in your bathroom.
The frameless corner shower enclosures create the illusion of openness. Indeed, the less metal the glass construction includes, the less noticeable shower panels are. And if your shower unit doesn’t have a tray, it’s even difficult to see that the shower enclosure divides the space. The frameless design adds natural light to the shower area. And this is especially significant. The shower enclosure is located in the bathroom corner which may lack lighting. Furthermore, the ceiling lighting combined with frameless shower doors helps convey a sense of open space to the greatest extent.
Corner Shower Enclosures: Shape Options
Actually, the shape options for corner shower enclosures are determined by the shower tray shape. So, there are the following shapes of shower trays:
The reasonability of choice of a certain shower tray shape depends on both usability requirements and personal aesthetic preferences.
Glass for Corner Shower Enclosures
The shower walls for the corner frameless glass constructions are made of toughened 10 mm thick glass or laminated toughened 13 mm thick glass. For quadrant shower enclosures, it’s necessary to use special curved glass. It’s possible to obtain such a glass by using a moulding technology. You can choose completely transparent, tinted (grey or bronze) or frosted glass for your corner shower unit. In addition, it’s easy to decorate your shower enclosure with sandblasted patterns, painting, full-colour printing, etc. The use of different decorating techniques doesn’t affect the strength and safety of glass.
Durability of Corner Shower Enclosures
All the structural elements of the shower enclosures, including the corner ones, suit for great loads and aggressive influence of water and heat. Actually, high humidity and high temperature are the eternal satellites for the bathroom microclimate. Due to the use of top-range toughened glass, the corner shower enclosures successfully resist the influence of these factors during the entire service life. The shower units are very durable. The fittings are also made of high-strength materials, coated with anticorrosive compounds. To add aesthetic appeal to the bathroom shower enclosures, it’s possible to use the fittings with anodised, satined, mirror polished, and brushed finishes.
When it comes to the design options for corner shower enclosures, the most widespread solution is to install a glass shower unit with one-leaf hinged shower door and one stationary glass panel. This stationary glass panel is perpendicular to the door. Such a design solution maximally satisfies the requirements of aesthetics and functionality. As a result, the shower space is protected from all sides. Consequently, the process of taking a shower in the corner glass shower unit becomes very comfortable. There are also many other design options which differ by the way of fixing the glass to the floor or to the walls, as well as by types of fittings used.
