Ready to give your bathroom a much-needed upgrade? Look no further than installing a shower cabin; they are the modern, luxurious way to freshen up and make your showering experience more enjoyable. But before you march off to the store, read our blog below for some tips and tricks on how to choose the perfect size.
When shopping for the perfect Shower Pod, size is one of the most important considerations to keep in mind. Cabin sizes vary widely and come in several different shapes and configurations. If you’re installing a corner model, measure the area where it will be installed first to ensure that you purchase one that fits properly without taking up too much space.
- Standard cubes typically range between 50 centimeters by 50 centimeters and 70 centimeters by 70 centimeters.
- Rectangular models will range between 120 centimeters by 80 centimeters up to 200 centimeters by 90 centimeters or larger.
When measuring, remember to take into account any sloping or additional features such as benches or seating selves when selecting the right-sized model for your bathroom space.
Measurements to Consider When Buying a Shower Cabin
When it comes to picking the right-sized shower cabin for your bathroom remodel, accurate measurements can be key in helping you find the perfect fit and look for your space. Here are the main measurements to consider when shopping for a shower cabin, as well as some other important factors for making a good purchasing decision:
1. Overall Dimensions
Every model of shower cabin should include either both length and width measurements or most commonly an overall size (in inches). Since all shower cabins come in standard sizes, you’ll want to make sure you match up the correct measurements with what your space allows.
2. Rough-In Dimensions
Also known as “rough-ins,” these are the horizontal and vertical gaps between two walls that need to be filled in by a given shower cabin size. Common rough-in dimensions range between 7 inches (18 centimeters) and 9 inches (23 centimeters).
3. Door Entry Space Requirements
Consider how much room is needed within (and outside) of the door opening area required by different models of shower cabins; this information should usually be available on product specifications in order to ensure that movement into/out of the cabin is comfortable and not too cramped.
4. Additional Room Requirements
Make sure your chosen model has enough auxiliary room at each side of both walls and within corners. This extra room can often affect how smoothly doors will slide or open onto door frames.
5. Installation Details
It’s important to read through any literature that provided detailed installation instructions, including prerequisites stipulated by the manufacturer(s) regarding any wall reinforcements required prior to fitting a given model of the shower cabin.
With all aspects considered beforehand in relation to the size of your upcoming shower cabin purchase, you can rest assured that comfort, aesthetics, and value for money are guaranteed when making an informed choice when it comes time to pick out your perfect fit!
