In a challenging housing market, there are certain features of a home that will almost invariably increase its value, specifically, the kitchen and the bathroom areas. There are a number of ways to go about renovating and upgrading these areas, but the following paragraphs will discuss an easy and efficient way of improving bathrooms, by means of bathroom corner baths and showers.
Frequently, the only difference between what are referred to as full baths, or half baths, is the presence of a shower. Simply because a bathroom may have limited space however, does not mean that it cannot be fully functional. Corner showers are an ideal way of upgrading the look and efficiency of a bathroom for which space is at a premium.
A standard corner shower unit will consist of a base, wall panels, and a door panel. The details of design, dimension, and aesthetic can vary considerably within these basic guidelines, but the principle remains the same: The unit is installed in a corner of the bathroom, providing an enclosure large enough to allow for a comfortable shower experience, without taking up as much space as a full-sized bath unit typically would. The wall panels are most often installed directly over top of the existing walls, allowing for a simple installation process, and ensuring that the enclosure is water-resistant, and watertight.
In addition to being excellent space savers, corner shower units are relatively inexpensive, and easy to purchase and install. Depending upon the model and make to be installed, most units will range in price from between $600.00 and $1,200.00 USD. Though certain individuals may choose to have the unit installed by the retailer or provider (a process that can frequently be completed in the course of an afternoon,) the installation is a relatively simple and user-friendly process. This means that an individual that is handy around the house could successfully complete the installation alone, in order to save on the cost of labor.
Bathroom corner showers are an inexpensive and clever way of increasing the value of your home, but their simplicity and value does not mean that any degree of quality or style must be sacrificed. In fact, with the great variety of corner shower units available, it is possible to find styles that are classic, modern, minimalist, or basic, in order to perfectly complement the existing style of the bathroom, or to create a new centerpiece for the room. One of the most popular new trends is the installation of glass shower panels, creating the impression of greater space, and innovative design.
