Remember the bad old days, when a shower meant a trickling stream from a calcified shower head hanging from a bracket over the bath, with the surrounds protected by a droopy plastic shower curtain?
Fortunately, times have changed. Modern showers can be an exquisite experience in a luxurious environment, and its all a great deal easier to achieve than you might think.
We at Port Marine Bathrooms are the shower experts in Bristol and surrounding areas. We’ve been in the bathroom business for more than 25 years and have lived through the transformation from when showers were an after-thought, to now, when showers shine as the functional centre-piece of a brilliant bathroom.
Most of the showers we supply and fit for our customers come from the award-winning Merlyn range of shower enclosures. If you visit our showroom you will see some of these top quality shower cubicles and splash guards in place – otherwise of course we can show you how classy they are in a catalogue.
Merlyn produce different styles, shapes and sizes of glass shower enclosures that come with a lifetime guarantee. The latest models are frameless and come with innovative features such as self-cleaning rollers on the doors, sliders that never stick, and even LED lighting around the door handle that reacts to movement and emits a warm, ambient glow.
To complement the sleek enclosures, there is a range of stylish shower trays available made of anti-bacterial acrylic.
The most important part of a good shower is undoubtedly the water flow. No-one enjoys having to dance around under the shower to get wet and struggling to get the water temperature just right! Our bathroom experts know all the ins and outs of achieving the perfect shower, and we can ensure we customise your shower to suit you. There are a wide variety of showerhead options, some mounted on the wall, some on the ceiling and some on pedestals on the floor.
The modern trend is for overhead mounted rain showers, positioned over your head to give you a good drenching. Some showerheads allow you to change the spray pattern and intensity, with different nozzles. Perhaps you fancy the luxury touch of a spa shower, which shoots jets of water horizontally across from one side of the shower to the other to provide a massaging action.
Showerheads and matching taps come in all sorts of styles and finishes to suit the décor of your bathroom, from sleek shiny chrome angular designs to gold-plated or bronze traditional shapes.
Over-bath showers are still found in many bathrooms, particularly where space is at a premium. Forget the shower curtain, though – the modern way is to fit the side of the bath with a glass splash guard, and we know all the tricks of the trade to ensure your shower has sufficient water pressure and is thermostatically controlled.
Here at Port Marine we have the expertise to handle a full shower installation project, from the planning stage through to plumbing, installation and tiling. Whether you are installing a shower as part of a complete new bathroom, in a new wet room, or just on its own, consult with us as to the best options to suit your budget and your needs.
