If you think that your old bathroom or even your shower needs a little bit of modernization, you would be surprised of the great choice at your disposal.


Today showers vary greatly according to shapes, models and places of installation. Sometimes an ordinary shower head is impossible to recognize - so much it is modified according to new fashion trends and tendencies of bathroom equipment design development. It has to be mentioned, that the shower heads have recently become an object of an active art-design. On the one hand, the bath ceased playing the key role in the bathroom and is now often replaced by a shower cubicle. The accent shifted and now shower set is emphasized. On the other hand, overwhelming majority of bathrooms are equipped with showers, which are an integral part of their image.


Owing to the intensive development of installation systems, a shower can be located in any place, on the wall or ceiling; it can arise on a column out of the floor, or even soar in the centre of the room like an UFO. All these factors have greatly influenced its shape, size and dimensions.


Column shower.

Column shower is perhaps the most modern phenomenon in shower sets design. One should not mix it with shower column (water pipe) or panel on the wall. It appeared, because a shower cubicle or an open shower usually do not have any contacts with walls and, moreover, are often situated rather far from them. Nevertheless, they should be somehow fixed. Therefore a metal column with a water pipe inside appeared. At the top of it there is a fixed shower head of a large diameter, which can be of various geometrical shapes. Shower mixer taps are located at the convenient level. Sometimes manual shower is included in the column.


Now, besides separate floor-standing shower columns, floor mixing drainages for baths and even sinks are produced. Sometimes all the set of hydrant accessories for bathrooms with the corresponding collection of bathroom equipment is performed in this model.


Fixed shower heads.

Traditional fixed shower heads resembles very much a well-known model that has been considered until now something hopelessly obsolete. Fixed shower pipe, through which water is supplied from the mixer to the shower head. This type of shower, modernized today, has become one of the most popular and asked-for one. As a rule, such shower system is mounted on the wall, but there are some modifications designed for free floor-standing model.


Elegant shower arms are topped by massive shower heads: solid dome-shaped or almost flat with distinguished high tech features, round and sometimes rectangular. Most of manufacturers supply them with a protection from lime deposits accumulation system; therefore, they are not threatened by danger, which disabled their predecessors. Special location of outlet openings allows reaching variable massage effects. Besides the large top shower head, manual shower is included, which increases its convenience in use.


Rotating shower heads.

Today instead of a fixed shower head, rotating shower head is often used.
