Article Body:
Living in the modern world, showers have become more of a luxury compared
to the ancient days in Greece where pull cord showers were taken outside
and only a cold water supply was available due to lack of plumbing.
More than a welcomed change occurred towards the latter part of the 80’s
and into the early the 90’s when new technologies were introduced into
the bathroom remodeling industry where bathroom suppliers saw a splurge
in shower and bath sales, indicating more homeowners were looking to
upscale their bathrooms.

Shower enclosures were popularized in part of the design boom with
bathroom suppliers exhibiting sleek trendy designs. Not before long
homeowners were demolishing their existing bathrooms down to the bare
walls, thus creating an increase in demand for home contractors and
renovation firms brought on by the bathroom design frenzy. The emergence
of shower enclosures became a key point of interest as it gave way to
opening up a bathroom where the shower no longer had to be attached to
the bath and only required additional plumbing be installed in order to
accommodate the placement of the shower enclosure.

Today’s remodelers are going big and going all out when it comes to
redesigning their bathrooms since there are far more design concepts
available especially for the smaller bathroom. Typically the average
size of a bathroom is approximately 130-140sq ft, according to the
National Interior Design Council when the new market trends came into
play, homeowners looked to shower enclosures as a means to give bathrooms
a more spacious appeal. A pivotal factor in helping revolutionize the
shower industry was due in part to homeowners moving towards replacing
single showers with two-person showers and eliminating adjoined
bath/shower units.

The desire for homeowners to express their individual design flare is
largely expressed in the increased number of sales in relation to shower
enclosures where people are looking to go beyond the traditional sliding
glass door shower or shower certain. Since shower enclosures have
undergone a tremendous change in the past several years, people are
quickly discovering frameless shower doors and enclosures are all the
rage and that taking a relaxing shower in one of these elegant easy-to-
clean shower enclosures is an oasis of sheer pleasure.


Staying with the trend towards openness and airy spaces, the eminent
range of shower enclosure designs add a stunning appeal to any bathroom
remodeling project, from frameless quadrant shower enclosures for an
ultra modern look or uniquely designed frosted glass corner shower
enclosure adorned in chrome or stainless steel. The dazzling spectacle
of shower enclosure designs directly lends to the success of the
bathroom and shower industry and has often been reported at times
difficult for bathroom suppliers to keep supply in stock, indicating
there is supply in demand and is on a steady upward climb. According to
interior designers with more homes being built, people are customizing
their bathrooms prior to completion to incorporate the latest trends in
bathroom décor with shower enclosures leading the way not only because of
their timeless elegance, but are easily maintained and with everyone
leading lifestyles that is an added bonus.
