Alcove pod: ideal for extravagant looks and features
Alcove pods are ideal for spaces such as hotel bedrooms and suites where every ounce of space available needs to be used. Alcove pods were expensive and takes a little bit of time to build. You had to install and seal a shower block, and waterproof and tile three walls to complete the whole pod. But now, there are available leak-proof ones that you can assemble in minutes. You just need to attach the pod modules before you step into the pod’s alcove.
You can place alcove shower pods against a wall and fixed with a door or stylish shower curtain. Additionally, you can quickly and easily install a washbasin and toilet added alongside for additional features. The modularity of an alcove pod shines out as well. Alcove shower pods are available in a variety of sizes and finishes and may be built to meet particular requirements. You can easily clamp the parts together to provide a fully leak-free, low maintenance shower cubicle, and perfectly blend with any bathroom theme from traditional to contemporary.
Corner pod: recommended for bathroom refurbishments
A corner shower pod may provide a solution for bathroom refurbishments where a room divider, window, or a door prevents a rectangular or square douche pod form-fitting along a wall. Compact but with spacious room to shower, a corner shower pod offers a modern, stylish addition to any conversion to the bathroom. Corner pods may be rectangular or square but a curved front is another option if you want to beautify your bathroom. Some lighting from the ceiling can be installed using an open-top configuration to lighten up the showering area of the pod.
Bespoke pod: great for mass accommodation
In certain places, such as intensive accommodation in schools, universities, academies, and hostels; refurbishment costs and practicality may take priority over visual and design appeal. Of course, this is not to imply that bespoke, custom-made shower pods don’t look appealing, they do. Designers must devise cubicle sizes to match the maximum number of units while ensuring plenty of indoor showering space. Skilled shower pod specialists can turn old school gyms into community areas with bespoke shower pods.
