The Shower Doctor Sees Surge in En Suite Bathrooms

EDINBURGH, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - March 15, 2011) - Staying in is the new going out; particularly in the bathroom. With the economic crisis meaning we're all tightening our belts, it seems we are turning to enhancing the most relaxing part of our home to create our own personal retreats and spas; with the most popular idea at the top of the redesign list being the en-suite bathroom.

57% percent of people who were interviewed as part of a Shower Doctor survey stated that although they do not yet have an en suite; compared with 43% who do, that this is something they hope to have at some point in the future - hopefully in 2011.

Having an en suite not only provides the height of convenience and luxury in your home, meaning you have your own personal space that you don't need to share, but it can also add significant value to your home as well.

Even the smallest spaces can accommodate a toilet, sink and a simple walk-in shower to free up a busy family bathroom, and will also mean that your house also has more selling power if you're looking to sell.

The Shower Doctor supply a range of shower parts, which include leading brands such as Triton shower parts and Mira shower spares. A spokesperson for them, said: 'En-suites are becoming more and more popular, especially for larger families. The key is to research and plan your design accordingly; decide what it is exacting you're looking for in your bathroom, whether it will be purely a functional area or a space for relaxing and pampering and whether you want to add mood lighting, a similar colour scheme to your master bedroom, etc... It's that simple!'

For those who already have an en suite bathroom, 2011 will see these become more luxurious as the bathroom haven trend really picks up. Basin-style sinks will feature prominently, as will LED lights, dimmer switches and a more sumptuous style to make your bathroom feel like a luxury hotel bathroom which allows you to relax and escape the stresses of the day.

Therefore, the future looks bright for the en suite and bathroom suppliers, including The Shower Doctor and bathroom designers have noted the growing trend with many placing a strong emphasis on the need for shower accessories and style of features that are most sought after for en-suite bathrooms.

According to most interior designers, the products and styles people look for in their en-suites tend to be much more personal, focused on relaxing colours and reflective of our own taste. However, the main bathroom tends to be more practical and based on clean lines, simplicity and being a neat family room that is also suitable for visitors.

About The Shower Doctor:

Shower Doctor was established in 1993 to focus on shower repair in the Edinburgh area by George Thomson. He realised that many perfectly good showers were being consigned to the scrap heap, often because many plumber or electricians had no in depth knowledge of how they worked or had difficulty in locating spare parts. So The Shower Doctor was born to remedy this.

Over the last few years the repair business has expanded as well as the stock holding of spare parts and the business has expanded to a team of experts, who between them have a wealth of experience in dealing with any shower-related problems.
