About Shower Column
A shower column (also referred to as a shower panel or a shower tower) is an increasingly popular alternative to the traditional shower. In addition to a broad array of overhead jets, a shower column features multiple nozzles to be angled directly at your head, back and shoulders individually, making this luxury item ideal for people with limited mobility. Whatever your lifestyle, though, shower columns will transform a humdrum daily shower routine into a pleasant, relaxing activity; something to jump out of bed for or ready you for sleep.
Some trusted brands include Aquamassage, Dreamline, Fresca Bath, Grohe, Hansgrohe, Kohler and Tenzo, and models vary widely.
Since shower columns are an expensive luxury item, you'll certainly want it to fit with the rest of your bathroom, and there are many options to choose from. Rectangular forms with hard corners have an urban edge and neat feel to them, while curvier forms give off more of a fluid, sleeker and more subtle impression. Also choose from a full range of colours and materials, including stainless steel, aluminium alloy, imitation wood and even real wood for a truly rustic or Scandinavian feel.
Top of the range thermostatic models have an in-built mixing valve to ensure the water never comes out too hot (for instance when somebody flushes a toilet). Other accessories include a hand-held shower head, massage jets, and also LED lights that appear to colour the overhead water in red, green or blue.
Simple models can be installed by the buyer, but more advanced models will require an experienced professional.
