The receiver is the centerpiece of the shower. In the current market, three main subjects are competing: plastic, marble and ceramic (or tiling). Each material has its strengths and weaknesses. Price, convenience, quality and design are going to be the decisive criteria.
Primer the aesthetic side
The trend of the moment is the shower in Italy. There are mainly two versions: the tiled shower and shower with a slim line receiver. The tiled shower has the advantage of blend in with the décor, because it is developed with the same tiles as the Bestcraftblog. Does not require a surplus of pose and evacuation work, she is also very economical. Various materials are available in the range of extra-thin recipients: sandstone, ceramics, plastic, acrylic, synthetic resin, natural stone, marble and even wood. For a prestigious shower, there is nothing like the marble and wood, but he must pay the price! Very affordable, enamelled stoneware, acrylics and ceramics are available in various colours, resistant and durable.For more design shower, recipients in resin of synthesis are perfect with their colours and their forms original, but very expensive.
Opt for the convenience
Maintenance, weight, resistance and maneuverability are the factors that determine the practicality of a shower tray. Acrylic, ceramic and glazed stoneware recipients do not require a rigorous maintenance. Acrylic (plastic) is the lightest material. However be careful to choose a good quality receiver, thick enough to be able to be strong, durable and less susceptible to scratches. The stoneware and ceramics are heavier, but they stand up well to wear, do not scratch easily and are very simple to maintain. Recipients in natural stone, marble and wood are often porous and require expensive maintenance using specific products (acid for marble, essential oils for wood…).
For best price, recipients in tiles and ceramic or enameled stoneware recipients are most recommended.
