Fit these panels and you can step straight into the shower, as well as impress any house guests by giving your bathroom an illusion of space. Unlike having a wet room, glass panels will still offer protection against moisture ending up in unwanted areas, yet offer a slimline alternative to doors to suit the decor of a modern bathroom. When it comes to planning the walls of your new shower, inexpensive ceramic tiles that will be easy to clean and offer lasting protection against damp and fungi may be one solution. A wide variety of finishes are now available, however, including stone finishes and neutral colour ranges. You could even have tiles continuing from the shower floor all the way through the bathroom to give a stylish impression of a bigger space. DESIGN TIP: USE NEUTRAL COLOURS FOR A CLEAN FEELING The latest designs are large, beautiful and practical ‘rain’-style shower heads. Step under one of these wide-diameter fitments and you’ll feel clean and refreshed in a matter of seconds. They include some of the most technologically advanced models available and you can adjust the flow and intensity of the water to pamper yourself with the ultimate relaxing shower. ✱
