3 Main Features to Keep in Mind when Buying Electric Showers

The following is a guest post

Electric showers work much like water heaters. They heat mains water quickly as it flows to the shower head. They are very economical choices as they heat only the water that you need at the time and are the only choice for a shower that is completely independent of a hot water heater. This means that if your boiler is in need of repair, you can still enjoy a piping a3507shot shower. When purchasing electric showers, there are a number of features that you may want to keep in mind.

1. Riser Rail – The riser rail is a metal bar that attaches to the wall. This is what allows you to adjust the height of your shower head. If you want a bit more flexibility, a longer rail is a good choice. Many electric showers have riser rails that offer hooks for shower gels and built-in soap dishes.

2. Spray Variance – You can choose electric showers that offer variable spray patterns from power jet sprays to wide sprays. Choosing the right shower depends of course on your personal preferences. When selecting, check to see if the shower head offers an adjustable spray. Many have up to five different spray modes.

3. Power Rating – You want to choose a shower that has a good power rating. Most vary between 8.5 kW and 10.8 kW. You will likely pay a bit more for higher power ratings but the higher they are, the more powerful your shower sprays will be. You may find that some also offer variable settings such as economy settings that will use less power by providing you with a lower temperature of water.

These are the main features that you should consider. There are however, many other features that you may find when you are shopping. Some offer water saving shower heads that enable you to conserve water as well as energy when showering. Others have push-button controls that make it much easier for you to enjoy the same flow and temperature settings each time you shower. Memory functions ensure that your specific settings are remembered and many models offer these that are capable of remembering up to five different shower users. Each time you get into the shower you simply choose your pre-programmed setting and your shower will be the way you like it every single time.

There are a number of other features you may want to consider as well, but these are the most important. Select an electric shower that suits your showering and design needs as well as your budget.

Bathroom Accessory Collections

Unless you have ever undergone a DIY bathroom remodeling project, you may not be aware of the fact that there are actually a that come as a full collection. In fact, bathroom accessories can complement literally any era in décor from Victorian to ultramodern times. Usually these full collections contain the toilet roll holder, a hand towel holder, a tumbler holder and a soap dish. However, it is also possible to order each of the components separately if the need arises. Although these attractive accessories are well-built and durable accidents do happen and pieces may need to be replaced from time to time.

55203_imageWhen it comes to period pieces for the bathroom there is no finer source than bathroom accessories. It is possible to find Edwardian accessories, Victorian accessories and modern accessories as well. Also, mirrors are available in a wide array of styles some of which are backlit while others are representative of different eras in UK design. The Art Deco mirror is a great example of this as it is styled after the lines of that period. You may also want to consider adding any towel rack, heated or non-heated, to add to your full collection of accessories in order to have a place to have a bath towel on the ready.

Since it is possible to get free delivery to all orders on the mainland UK if they are over £65, it is wise to order the entire collection at the same time.

Bathroom or Bedroom Reading

I found this interesting wastebasket from Snowtone today and had to share it. Apparently you can cover it with a magazine to hide the contents or just have a good place to store your bathroom and bedroom reading. I think it would be very useful for anyone with limited space. Of course you would not be able to over fill the can with junk, or you would not have a place to put your reading material.

Simple ways to remodel your bath

Everyone says that bathrooms and kitchens sell home, that is the main reason people redo their bathroom. My theory is why wait till you sell, do it now so you can enjoy it!

There are many ways to get this done, you can do it yourself if your handy by going to your local home improvement store or you can check out a show room like directbuy where they will help you get started, install it and grantee there work. These are the cheaper way to do these things, you of course can always hire an interior designer to do these things for you, but you will be paying for them.

If you decide to do it yourself. You need to keep a few things in mind. One is people now like big master baths. So if you can keep it big and make sure to let a lot of light in. Invest in a large tub and separate shower if possible. Two sinks are a must and a large well lit mirror should be over them. You can also do two well lit mirrors.

If you want to personalize your bath, you need to stick to the accessories. When you do sell your home, you want to be able to do it without making big changes. Yes you should always think of what will sell the home, because it will be sold someday, it may not be you selling it, but don’t you want your children to get the most they can out of it?

Remember when it comes to bathrooms, think light clean and stylish.

Bathroom Decor

When designing a bathroom you don’t always have the option of getting both a tub and a separate shower. Sometimes you have to have both in one and then you get to go on the fun trip to find a shower curtain and other accessories to go with it.

I recommend fabric shower curtains because they look better and last longer then plastic, of course you can and should put a clear plastic lining behind it. This will help to protect the fabric and make it last longer.

If your looking to make a statement in your bathroom use something like a brown shower curtain and accessories to make them stand out. Use a cream or turquoise color on the wall and watch your bathroom go from boring to stylish. Changing your accessories is a simple, but affordable way to change a room and make it your own.

Upgrade and Sell Faster

One way to upgrade your home is to update the fixtures, this includes lighting, cabinet handles and the faucets in your bathroom and kitchen. This is a cheep way to update your home and really does have a great impact on it. If you have an old plastic faucet, change it out for a new metal one as they have a look that will work for years.

BathroomAnother way to upgrade your home is to change out other aspects of your kitchen or bath. Bathrooms are a huge selling point of a home, If you have a master bath it could sell your home, so you want to make it look as good as possible. One way is to check out Taps4less.com, they are a website located in the UK that sells some wonderful things for your home and bath. They have a great selection of Bathroom fixtures such as bathtubs, saunas, showers and even the wonderful heated towel rack. Whats better then getting out of a hot shower and into a warm towel?

Also depending on your area and the type of person you are hoping to sell to, a hot tub is also a great way to up the value of your home. Many people see those and think “Now I don’t have to buy one” Of course sometimes this is not always the case, so if you are looking to sell check with a local Realtor as to how many homes have sold with hot tubs in your area.
