City Living Starts With a shower room


The prices of flats and houses in London are rising rapidly. Anyone who is trying to get a foot on the property ladder will have to be satisfied with the concept that ‘small can be beautiful.’

Parental bathrooms

If you’ve grown up with the luxury of a spacious bathroom, complete with large windows, an airing cupboard and a huge roll top bath, you’re going to have to adjust your ideas.

Most affordable London flats will only provide you with the bare minimum which means a shower is the answer to your washing woes.

Economy showers

One wonderful ways of cutting your costs and having a constant supply of hot water when you wash is to install one of the many Mira Showers electric showers.


These ingenious devices will cut down on your water expenditure and they are cost effective. The water is only heated when you use the shower, so you won’t have to worry about expensive water heating systems and you can have access to hot water at any time of the day or night.

If you return from a night with your friends you may well enjoy the pleasure of a refreshing cleanse before retiring to bed.

Small showers are beautiful

London is in the middle of a property crisis and many people have to make do with the smallest property they can afford. A survey from the Royal Institute of Architects (RIBA) has recently stated that the UK has some of the smallest properties in Europe, so it’s not just Londoners who have to be innovative.

One way of dealing with this problem is to find a flat with a shower room. This will save space and can look pretty cool at the same time. You can use the extra space to expand your bedroom or kitchen, perhaps.

Imaginative showers

If you are lucky enough to have a bathroom in your new home then you could always convert it into a wetroom. These rooms are easy to clean and mean that you won’t have to install a shower cubicle.

The floor to ceiling tiling can provide you with a space to demonstrate your artistic flair with your choice of colour and design.


Alternatively, the installation of a wetroom will add value to your home. Some house sellers describe this room as a water therapy facility but that might be going a little bit too far.

A 70's child, I’ve been married for a Very Long Time, and appear to have made four children, and collected one large and useless dog along the way. I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.
