Roman Decem Victoriana Printed Shower Glass

British shower expert Roman has brought back their Decem Victoriana Collection with an updated design. Victorian and vintage styles have continued to fascinate us. Roman has successfully combined the best design and cutting-edge technology to create a shower enclosure with a Victorian approach. This stylish period design matches exquisitely with traditional sanitary ware and tiles.

The Decem Victoriana wetroom panels construct from 10mm glass and integrate self-closing hinges which deliver a remarkably smooth and luxurious door function. Furthermore, to provide simple, hygienic maintenance, it is coated with Roman’s Ultra Care glass treatment to repel dirt and grime.

How Roman creates the perfect Victorian print on shower glass?

Roman Decem Victoriana Print Hinged Shower Door

Roman has been experts in showering solutions for over 34 years. To create the perfect print on their shower glass, Roman applies their advanced craftsmanship into the print creation process. During the toughening procedure, a white etch colour is actually fired into the glass. As a result, the etched effect provides a modicum of modesty, while also performing as a perfect association to the classical decorative style.

How to choose the perfect bespoke shower

 

Here in the United Kingdom we frequently have quite characterful properties with a history to them, and rather than a completely new blank space you will often have the odd low ceiling to contend with, (loft conversions) or an uneven wall to account for when renovating a bathroom space something like a giant game of Tetris!

Matki bespoke

These odd shapes and uneven spaces can be worked with rather than presenting a hindrance, through opting for a bespoke Shower design. A bespoke shower enclosure offers you a solution tailored to your needs. Of course a bespoke shower options are not just for bathroom renovation projects, you might be planning a new build where you need a shower door where off the shelf solutions won’t work, for example a steam room or frosted shower doors. Most of the manufacturers we work with offer solutions that adjust the height and width, and some can even create various special sections to suit a certain shaped area for example an angled cut to suit a celling. This is actually a much smoother process than you would think, in most cases we can work with you and the manufacturer to agree on a no-obligation design in advance.

A step up from this, Matki actually have a specially dedicated Bespoke team who will work with you on your project. They offer a “Measure & Fit” service where their engineers conduct a site visit, coming out to your property and measuring up with professional precision, and once the enclosure is manufactured they visit again to fit the goods. This ensures the perfect fit!

Matki Bespoke

In terms of shape and cut, some of the solutions Matki offer are:

Ultra-Bespoke-Matki-004Dwarf Walls

These can be used to create really interesting areas, for example to create a spa like wet room or steam room. Tiled seating sections or a shower chaise lounge can be created, with a dwarf height inline panels that meet a full height door.

matki_eauzone_attic_space-004

Angled Cuts

Angled cuts offer the perfect solution for a bathroom loft conversion or slanted roof. Cutting across the glass at an angle creates a made to measure pentagon screen.

 

Other options with bespoke design include specification of colour finish and material, even shower door handle style and personalised glass etching. This is where things get really interesting, and you can create something truly unique to your home and your taste.

Their standard finish is a polished silver, but Matki now offer various bespoke finishes to frames, hinges and handles including: Brushed or Polished Gold, Brushed or Polished Nickel. The Matki One range has the following colour options: Architectural Bronze, Silver, Black Anodised, White Coated.

Matki Bespoke Hinges

Matki One Bronze

Metal disc handle details can be added in: Chrome as standard but also Copper, Brass, Green, Red, Blue, Black or White. We particularly like the polished nickel for a more traditional look, or the architectural bronze for a contemporary edge. In addition to colour customisation, the handle design can also be specified from a range of options.

Matki Handles

The handle choice can really change the entire look of the enclosure, for example choosing the traditional handle design and a soft polished nickel finish would compliment Matki’s Swalding classical brassware beautifully as demonstrated in the inspirational image below in a traditional room setting with plush furniture and complimentary neo-baroque framed mirror.

EauZone Plus Nickel

As of 2016, new to the EauZone Plus range is Matki’s soft brushed gold finish, which we think works beautifully:

Matki EauZone Plus Gold

Showering is an easier option for the less abled

As we get older and become less able, getting into and out of the bath can become very difficult and many are turning to the shower as a solution to the problem. Here at ukBathrooms there are many shower options to choose from, but one which we consider to be the best when someone is finding it difficult to get into and out of the bath, is to replace the bath completely with a walk in shower cubicle; this will fit into the same space as the bath, but is easier to use, clean and maintain.

The Kinedo Kinemagic Walk In Shower ticks all the boxes and is supplied as a complete shower kit with overhead rains shower head, is simple to install and has a number of features. The tray is slip proof, leak free and the glass panels fit neatly into the tray, no silicone or grouting is required. The shower valve is thermostatically controlled and a very hand strong and robust fold down seat is included as well as a grab handle. The cabinet has been constructed with anodized metal and sheer glass, the glass is specially treated with Cristal Plus, to ensure that this remains steak free, cleaner for longer and free from limescale.

Available as a corner or recessed unit, this unit provides a quick and efficient installation; with a no door option available on request.
