The requirements of modern home for sanitary ware are getting higher and higher. Many families hope to have an independent bath space, and the shower room came into being. At present, there are mainly two kinds of shower rooms in the market: overall shower room and simple shower room. Which one is better? Next, we will comprehensively compare the two shower rooms and share some super practical shower room purchase skills, hoping to help you.
Integral shower room
The overall shower room is generally composed of sprinkler, shower room body, shower screen, top cover, bottom basin or bathtub. The shower screen adopts tempered glass, and the bottom cylinder and back plate are generally made of acrylic composite materials.
Advantages: the whole shower room is fully enclosed, with good thermal insulation performance, and there is no need for Yuba even in winter; It has complete functions. In addition to the basic bath function, it also has * * and steam functions; With independent drainage pipe, you don't have to worry about the waterproof problem of the toilet.
Disadvantages: the size of the overall shower room is generally too large, and it is basically not customizable, with poor flexibility; The price is relatively expensive, and high-end products are often more than 10000 yuan; The function is relatively complex. The elderly must be guided by their family, and children generally cannot use it alone.
Simple shower room
The structure of the simple shower room is simple. Most of the rooms are made of tempered glass, the frame is made of aluminum alloy, and the bottom basin is made of acrylic composite material or stone base platform.
Advantages: the space is relatively independent and concise, with a strong sense of permeability, and does not block the overall tile paving effect of the toilet; The price is relatively cheap, generally less than 2000 yuan, and the styles are rich and diverse, which can be customized according to the actual situation of the bathroom.
Disadvantages: there is no "roof" in the simple shower room, and the warmth preservation is not very good; It only has the basic bath function without more additional functions; Before installing the simple shower room, a waterway shall be reserved and the toilet shall be waterproof.
The overall shower room has rich functions, good thermal insulation performance, and there is no need to worry about drainage. However, the price is relatively expensive and the use is relatively complex. It is generally suitable for the toilet of luxury villas; The simple shower room has a simple structure and only has the basic bathing function, but the price is relatively cheap, which is more suitable for ordinary families.
How to choose the shower room
1. The shower room shall be of appropriate size
The overall shower room is basically non customizable, the height is generally about 2.1m, and the length and width can be selected according to the area of the toilet; The simple shower room can be customized. The general standard height is 1.9m or 1.95M, and the length and width are related to its shape.
2. The glass of shower room shall be explosion-proof
The shower room must use tempered glass and have 3C certification mark. It is better to print directly on the glass with laser; The thickness of tempered glass is generally 6-8mm.
3. The aluminum material of shower room shall be strong
Poor aluminum materials are mostly made of recycled waste aluminum materials, with a thickness of only 0.7mm-1.1mm, which is easy to deform or break; Good aluminum surface will be treated in multiple layers, with firm coating, bright color and no corrosion, and the thickness is 1.2mm-1.5mm, and some can even reach 2mm.
4. The slide rail of shower room shall be smooth
The slide rail with poor quality is difficult to pull, and the glass is prone to explosion when it is pulled hard. Therefore, the wheel seat of the pulley shall be made of compression and weight resistant materials, such as 304 stainless steel and high-end synthetic materials.
