What Do You Hope to Achieve with Bi Fold Bathroom Shower Enclosures?

Sloegrin Bi-fold Door Shower Enclosure

When you design your bathroom you want to achieve something. Maybe you’re looking to achieve a sophisticated design or maybe you’re looking for something simplistic, streamlined and convenient.

Deciding what to write about today, I had to throw in the bi fold bathroom shower enclosures, because you don’t get a better design for any bathroom. They are the most convenient shower enclosures I have come across, they open up the area and offer a spacious and light feel.

Showers are found in many homes especially those with compact bathrooms, a shower enables you to have the convenience without compromising on the floor space. But when choosing your shower enclosure you want it to be easy enough for the whole family to use, you want the convenience and style without the headache.

Design

When you look at the bi fold shower enclosures you are looking at an enclosure that folds away, usually two panes of glass that fold together making an easy entry into the shower. The advantage to this over a sliding or pivot door is that the bi fold design, lets you fold the door flat against the wall, opening up a large area without compromising on precious space.

Space

Which brings me to my next point, space. Space is a luxury for many of us when it comes to our homes. Have you noticed how houses are getting built smaller and smaller? This means we have compact bathrooms to work with, bathrooms that can’t fit a full size bath and a pivot shower enclosure is out of the question. Pivot enclosures need to open outwards, if you have a compact bathroom you have the delight of trying to get the door open, banging it on the basin or toilet and trying to squeeze out of the small opening you manage to accomplish.

The bi fold bathroom shower enclosures fold away with ease, you get the full space to get in and out and they don’t take up any of your actual bathroom space, that’s a big plus for those of us with a challenging compact bathroom. The fold actually folds inwards towards the centre of the shower, so you don’t have any glass jutting into the bathroom and you don’t have to worry about other bathroom amenities getting in the way.

So if you’re off to buy a shower enclosure and you have the difficult task of working with a compact bathroom, the bi fold bathroom shower enclosures may be worth a look at if you want convenience, ease and practicality combined with style and sophistication.

Below is a simple poll with a few choices. As always please leave a comment as i’d love to hear from you. You can even suggest the frequency and name of your favourite station so i can check it out. As always enjoy.

This is a good all round fun shower radio that is ideal for people with a fun sense of humour or for a family with kids. The radio is in the shape of a penguin with a rubber ring and goggles. It has easy to use buttons and requires 3 AA batteries to work and can tune into both FM and MW.

Water Powered Shower Radio

  1. H20 – 100 Power Water Pressure Powered Shower Radio

This is a fantastic shower radio that is truly a work of brilliant innovation. The radio does not need batteries to work as it is powered by the water pressure of the shower. I mean that is very clever plus environmentally friendly and cost saving on batteries.

The radio is easy to install directly onto the faucet of your shower, when you turn the shower on it turns the turbine inside the radio and generates power to run the radio. The radio will also work after the shower is turned off as the turbine also charges up the rechargeable battery inside meaning you can be listening to your tunes while drying off. Easy to use buttons are situated on the front of the radio.

Microphone Shower Radio

  1. Microphone Shower Radio

If you enjoy singing in the shower and I mean who doesn’t, then this is the shower radio for you. The radio is shaped like a microphone with easy to use buttons on the side. There is also a hook at the bottom so when you don’t want to sing into the mic when your favourite tune is playing you can always hang it up. This is defiantly the radio if you are a budding rock or pop star.

Bluetooth Shower Radio

  1. Hipe Waterproof Bluetooth Stereo Shower Speaker & Hands free Speakerphone for streaming Audi and Answering your phone-White

This is the most hi-tech and expensive of the radios listed but it does come with some impressive features that warrant the price tag. The radio is Bluetooth enabled and so you can connect to any other Bluetooth device. This enables you to be able to stream music and even answer phone calls from your mobile while being in the shower. This is defiantly the radio for people constantly on the move or gadget lovers. This radio has easy to use buttons on the front and is available in white or black.

Motion Sensor Shower Radio

  1. Clatonic DR 814 Shower Radio with Motion Sensor

This is a fantastic shower radio that has some great features. The radio has easy to use buttons located on the front of it and a hook at the top but that is not the main feature of this radio. The main feature is that the radio has a built in motion sensor that automatically turns the radio on and off. It also has both AM and FM bands giving you a wide choice of stations to listen to.

Well hope you enjoyed my top 5 shower radios and that you found your perfect companion to compliment your new shower enclosure.

The complication with shower enclosures


Showers are brilliant, there is simply no denying it they are brilliant, particularly first thing in the morning to wake yourself up ready for the day ahead. They are more economical then baths due to less water consumption and you don’t have to wait 10 minutes before you can use them. So why am I getting all worked up with showers when I enjoy them so much. Well I guess it’s not really the showers which I have an issue with it’s more the copious amount of choice with regard to shower enclosures.

Shower enclosures are the part of the shower which unfortunately is just as important as the shower head and handles that constitute the actual shower. Shower enclosures are essential as they stop water getting every where and are crucial in making sure you have a happy shower. But here is where my complication begins what shower enclosure should I choose?

Image

 

The option out there for shower enclosures is vast and diverse with lots of different shapes, sizes, styles and functionalities, there are Quadrant, Pivot, Hinged, Sliding, Bi-fold, Walk In and Shower panels all available, but which one to choose?

I’ve tried to split the decision down into a few very short categories which although are simple logic it’s worth reminding ourselves of these simple factors. I mean the last thing we want is to buy the wrong shower enclosure.

Space

The first small category and possibly the most important is space. Measuring and working out how much space you have to install a shower enclosure is the first action to be taken. As if you really like a certain shower style and size but simply don’t have the space you need to re-think and find a shower enclosure suitable for the space you have available.

Budget

Budget is also a key factor in decision making with regard to shower enclosures as you may find a shower enclosure made from plated gold which is no doubt beautiful but also way out of your budget and so would have to be ruled out. So stick to your budget.

Style

Style is all down to personal preference, what some people think is wonderful, others may be repulsed. So it’s your house and your decision so be as extravagant or minimalist as you like. As I said it’s your house and your shower enclosure so you get the style that you want.

I hope you have enjoyed this short blog on shower enclosure frustration and have found the information useful or at least a reminder of what to be considering when buying a shower enclosure. As always please leave any comments and thanks again for reading.
