The modern generation of the planet's inhabitants leads an active lifestyle. Sometimes there is not even enough time to calmly take a bath. Therefore, more and more owners of apartments and houses give preference to showers. They are compact in size and, thanks to their rich functional equipment, allow you to relax even while standing. Shower cabins outperform classic bathtubs not only in terms of overall dimensions, but also in aesthetics. Beautiful glasses and spectacular lighting make washing equipment a real work of art. Many domestic and foreign manufacturers sell their products on the Russian market. The recommendations of our experts will come to the aid of those who are going to purchase a shower cabin in the near future.

Recommendations for choosing a shower cabin

Design features. One of the first characteristics of a shower enclosure that potential buyers should pay attention to is its design.

  1. Closed models are a sealed capsule. They consist of a pallet, a body, doors and a ceiling. Such shower cabins can be installed not only in bathrooms, but also in the same room with gas water heaters or boilers.
  2. Open models have no ceiling. Therefore, steam and water splashes can escape outside the cab. But such products attract a lower price.

Pallet. All shower cabins are pallet-based. For the manufacture of this element, manufacturers use enamelled steel, cast iron, ceramics and ABS plastic. But the most popular today are acrylic products or artificial marble pallets.

Safety. It is difficult to imagine a shower cabin without glass doors. Maximum safety for users is provided by models with a large wall thickness (6 mm). It is even better when the manufacturer uses high-strength heat-resistant glass.

Functionality. Modern shower cabins are equipped not only with a mixer and “rain”. Backlighting, timer, touch display, ventilation, hydromassage have already become familiar options. In the shower, you can simultaneously listen to the radio, receive a number of water procedures, talk on the phone. The number of options is growing every year, and many of them appear already in the basic configuration.

Control method. When choosing a shower cabin, you should also think about control.

  1. Mechanical models are simple and unpretentious. They are found in budget showers.
  2. Electronic control provides consumers with maximum comfort during washing. But such models are more complex and expensive.

We have selected 15 of the best shower cabins firms for our review. All companies sell their products in Russia. When allocating seats, the editorial board of the journal relied on the opinions of experts, taking into account the reviews of domestic users.
