The Italian shower between comfort and design

The Italian shower between comfort and design

The modern and easy-to-access walk-in shower caters to everyone whose bathroom is their favorite room. Its promise: a feeling of space and freedom that adapts to all bathrooms, from the smallest to the most spacious. Back to a real phenomenon in our bathrooms. To understand the name of Italian shower, you have to go back to ancient Rome and its famous thermal baths which inspired this spectacular shower. Today, it invests all interiors for its practicality and elegant design. Concretely, you should know that the walk-in shower is a shower that has no threshold because its recipient is not visible but integrated in the ground. This system frees up space on the ground and offers exceptional comfort to the user. No need to take your foot off to get in or out of the shower, you move as in the rest of the bathroom. And this advantage is considerable for children, the elderly and people with reduced mobility. To adapt to specific situations, you can even add a shower seat that can be removable and a righting bar to help with autonomy. Note also that non-slip floor will always be appreciated by all users. Maintenance is also easier because you will not have a shower cubicle to clean. Technically, this type of shower requires a perfect mastery of waterproofing, so if you are not a handyman, it is better to turn to a professional installation. Be aware that there are two options for the receptacle to be impermeable to filtration: you can opt for a receptor ready to tile or you can start making a water-repellent screed. In any case, you must equip yourself with a high-flow siphon so that the water drains quickly and does not cause flooding. To help the water to evacuate to the siphon, there should be a slight slope ranging from 1 to 3%. This type of shower can be installed in any bathroom area because it is by definition tailored . You can install it in a corner, in the center of the bathroom, on rounded or straight walls. It's up to you to determine the place you want it to take in your space. Be careful however to choose a sufficient space so as not to bump your elbows while washing. On the decorative side, the walk-in shower is a real decorative ally because it becomes the centerpiece of your bathroom . You can add side walls for more privacy. Note that the glass walls provide a design style and are discreet enough to enhance the shower. You also have the choice in terms of coating because the materials are numerous: tiling or mosaic for a traditional aspect, marble for a luxury spirit, teak for a natural atmosphere or even waxed concrete for a design touch. And for unparalleled luxury, walk-in showers can be equipped with a "walk-in", a sort of airlock to put down your towel or undress. Photos to inspire or to dream… Discover "Decorative photos"
