Which is the Best Type of Shower Cubicle for a Student Bathroom?
Posted by Michael Kiernan
If you're dealing with the challenges of limited bathroom space in student flats or Halls of Residence, you'll want to find a shower pod that suits what you've got to work around. In a confined room, corner enclosures, angled mats, pods, and quadrant divisions can provide excellent cleanliness standards while forming a workable fit that doesn't clutter up everything.
Pod cubicles fit quickly and easily into recesses and corners, making them ideal for architects, renovators, and facilities managers working with tight, repetitive spaces. Our prefabricated modular shower pods help student accommodation designers overcome many other interior challenges - limited money and installation timescales are just two. Here's why our shower pods are perfect for new and existing student bathrooms:
Angled, Cubicle, And Quadrant Shower Enclosures
One of the best ways to maximise your floor space is to install your shower in an enclosed booth on a 90-degree corner. Placing the showerhead at the back of the room and containing it also helps with ventilation planning and cuts spray, keeping the bathroom free of mould by reducing condensation and splashes.
Angled bases and cubicle (oblong) shower enclosures create a safe, insulated box with a firm, sanitary plastic base. With prefabricated three and four-sided designs available, they're also the best option if you need to get your bathroom(s) ready for use rapidly and cheaply – such as during a student recess.
As well as being adaptable to small rooms due to leg-mountings and replaceable panels, triangular and 'half-cut' models are also available to fit truly tiny footprints. Quadrant designs cut space requirements even further by using a curved, half-semi-circle base and glass door.
Walk-In Shower Cubicles
If you're really stretched for empty wall and floor space but have efficient ventilation in place, and want a stylish, attractive solution, why not consider building a walk-in? Walk-in showers make a great addition to any wetroom. Their simple moveable head and open-plan design make them flexible to additions and rearrangement.
Slimline Mats, Over-Bath Mounting Points, And Wall-Mounted Shower Heads
For a confined student bathroom layout, slimline, over positioned, and wall-fixed heads can be the way to go. Mats and wall mounting kits trim a shower down to its bare essentials, eliminating the need for bulky bases and allowing you to move the head to almost any plumbed location inside. These all rely on an 'invisible' square of reserved space (with no dedicated side fittings or claddings) to work. They're also slightly cheaper, less intrusive, and easier to fit around existing than many other solutions.
