Shower cabin with or without a tray?

First of all, decide which shower cabin to choose: equipped with a tray or devoid of it?

Without pallet. You are standing directly on the tile, the water drain goes through a floor drain installed in the floor. Such a solution will allow to achieve a visual purity of the design, but it is paid for with the complexity of the shower installation, the inability to move, for example, when moving and a certain discomfort in contacting bare feet with tiles.

A shower cabin without a tray looks elegant and stylish

With a pallet. These showers are more common, which is explained by the ease of installation, ease of use, ease of maintenance. However, we note that a shower with a “trough” looks less elegant than without it — it seems cumbersome. Yes, and the price is slightly higher - because of the "extra" details in the system.

The shower cabin with the pallet provides high comfort

If you realized that your choice of a shower cabin with a pallet, evaluate the following parameters:

The shape and area. Most models have a square base with sides from 70 to 170 cm. Such a format provides ample space in the cabin and a choice of mounting location: in the corner, along the wall, in the middle of the room. But you can find a system with a pallet in the form of a rectangle, a circle (whole, half, a quarter) and an oval (or part of it) - they either give more space or save the size of a bathroom.

Depth. All parts are divided into three types: small (height of the sides 3-5 cm), medium (up to 20-25 cm) and high (from 30-40 cm). Depending on the circumstances, choose the shower tray tray. If the shower is used by older people, then it is more convenient and safer for them to have a tray of small depth (although it is more difficult to place a drainage system under it). And if you have a small child and no bath, you can bathe your baby in a deep pan by closing the drain and typing water.
Material. Enameled steel cast iron models are strong but heavy, and their coating can wear out, leading to rust; plus they are noisy and cool quickly. The earthenware tray is quieter, more comfortable, but afraid of shocks. Models made of acrylic are durable, cheap and varied in design, but not tough - the tray “plays” under your feet, demanding reinforcement. As for artificial and natural stone, it is warm and durable, but expensive.

In any case, try on the shower cabin before you buy it. To do this, go into it, twist, raise and lower your arms, bend over, sit down (especially if there is a shop) - that is, simulate the typical movements in the shower. If something interferes, look for another model.
