The Exposed Shower System Trend
One of the newest trends in interior design is the exposed shower system. This trend is so popular because it’s a modern and elegant way to upgrade the look of your bathroom without starting from scratch. The finished product is stylish and gorgeous and is an uncomplicated, effortless way to transform your bathroom into your very own home spa.
Some of the best designed hotels and restaurants have exposed ceiling designs where the pipes, beams and utility lines are all exposed. The end product is a modern design with an industrial touch. Again, you can go for a vintage or industrial feel, but the exposed shower system adds that sophisticated modern twist that is currently very popular. This improves the look and makes for a spectacular transformation.
What is an Exposed Shower System?
Exposed shower systems normally include a shower knob, a visible pipe to the shower head and to the shower head itself. A handheld shower head or any other attachment may also be available. The complete exposed shower system mounts on the wall of the shower with all standard internal workings of the shower just mounted externally on full display. This gives it a modern, industrial look and feel. In normal bathrooms the shower system is barely visible and concealed within the walls, blending into the background. With exposed shower systems, the plumbing is a conscious and visible choice of a modern design and can be used both indoors and outdoors or in situations where in-wall plumbing poses an issue.
Where is an Exposed Shower System Installation Ideal?
With a hand shower and exposed thermostatic valve, this is quite a simple installation. You can also opt for this as an option in your bath. But if you consider modernizing your shower, especially in an extra-large shower area, the exposed shower system will provide the necessary flair with its state-of-the-art unit, which includes an exposed thermostatic valve and overhead shower (and possibly hand shower).
