Selecting Suitable Stairlifts and Budget Electric Showers

With so many products for the home to select from, you’ve not only a wealth of choice at your disposal but also quite a task ahead of you selecting the most suitable products. Here is discussed showers and stairlifts, obviously not two household items to use in conjunction with one another, nor two you’ll find in the same environment, but the two do however share certain characteristics where selecting the most suitable items are concerned, namely affordability and value for money, durability and safety. These are issues that are not to be overlooked, for as these items are investments, and due to their nature could be dangerous if discretion isn’t applied, it suffices to say that you’ll want to give the purchase and installation of these household items the attention they warrant.

Affordability and value for money

Anything that you purchase, whether for the home or anywhere else, must be affordable and value for money if it is to represent a worthwhile purchase, one that is deserving of your time and attention. When selecting a replacement electric shower your purchase should not only be affordable in relation to your budget, but more importantly value for money. Remember that the shower or stairlift you buy must be made to last and that it should outlast the warranty that it comes with, moreover don’t forget to ensure that it comes with a warranty too. Therefore if you buy a shower with a warranty of five years you should be aiming to get even more out of it, and the same kind of thinking should also apply to stairlifts, even more so some would say due to the amount of outlay required to invest in a stairlift of a high quality. This isn’t to say that they are prohibitively expensive, but more so that stairlifts cost more than showers and other items about the home do and are therefore worthy of more attention with regard to warranties and durability.


It suffices to say that when you replace items around the home or invest in new ones, the items you spend your hard earned money on should be durable and stand the test of time. Anything that you buy for the home should come with a warranty, and as you might notice when looking at showers and stairlifts, some manufacturers and retailers even enable consumers to take out an extra service warranty on some products. Whilst this extra warranty isn’t essential, many homeowners have however found that it provides them with extra peace of mind and that’s something on which they believe a price can be put. Whilst cheap electric showers and staircases may not come with the option of taking out an extra warranty, they will however come with a warranty that provides you with adequate peace of mind, moreover remember to validate this warranty to ensure that if any problems do arise, that they can be dealt with effectively using the warranty the product comes with.


The importance of safety where household products like showers and stairlifts are concerned cannot be overlooked, for without a high degree and standard of safety these common household products could be responsible for a serious accident that could have, if the issue of safety was adequately addressed, have been avoided. A thermostatic mixer shower is a good example of a shower that has been designed with safety in mind, not to mention comfort, plus you’ll find it hard to beat such a product when sourcing a new shower for a home with a central heating system. If your home doesn’t have a central heating system, one that can be fitted to a thermostatic mixing valve (TMV), a valve which blends hot water with cold to ensure a constant and safe shower outlet temperature, then you’ll have to look at the other options available to you of which a wall mounted electrical shower might be the best choice. If you have a central heating system then the thermostatic shower is by far the best choice for your bathroom, since the TMV helps to reduce the incidence of accidents, most commonly scalding, a horrific way to suffer injuries in the shower and a very common injury amongst the young and the elderly. Whilst thermostatic showers are the best choice with regards to safety, there are still other aspects of buying and installing showers and stairlifts to take into account. Stairlifts, due to their nature, are items to which you will most certainly want to afford the issue of safety the inherent importance that it deserves, so when you’re looking into your options concerning stairlifts it would pay to adequately research the best stairlift brands and retailers.


As you’ll quickly realise upon taking a look at the websites of leading names in the shower and stairlift business, you’ve some excellent options to make the most of when sourcing new budget electric showers for your household bathrooms, as you do when sourcing a new stairlift to help you more easily ascend and descend the stairs. When you purchase showers and stairlifts online, and this is widely considered the best way to fully explore the options that are available to you, ensure that a quick delivery service is available (most offer next day deliveries) and if you’re buying a stairlift, ensure the retailer or manufacturer that you purchase the stairlift from offers a professional installation service. Unlike showers and other items, which most tradesmen are able to professionally and safely install, stairlifts require professional expertise where installations and after sales services are concerned, so ensure that the person carrying out the installation is an experienced professional and also ensure that the retailer you purchase the stairlift from offers comprehensive after sales service. As you’ll no doubt notice straight away, you’ve many different varieties of showers and stairlifts to choose from, so give some thought to the shower or stairlift that best suits your requirements. The varieties of showers that you have to select from include concealed, digital, electric, gravity fed, wall mounted and thermostatic showers, whilst with regard to stairlifts you can choose from curved, outdoor, perched, standing and straight. Give plenty of thought to your home and the place in which the shower or stairlift will be installed, and also give the frequency and the manner in which you’ll use it adequate thought also, for if you’re going to use something frequently you will have to factor in wear and tear, so don’t overlook the importance of this when selecting showers and stairlifts.

Manufacturers and retailers

Just as you’ve plenty of options to make good use of where showers and stairlifts are concerned, so too do you have plenty of great options where manufacturers and retailers are concerned. As you’ll most likely source these products online due to the convenience and ease associated with doing so, not to mention benefitting from a more impressive range of products retailed by retailers or sold directly by the manufacturer, limit the websites you take a look at to those that are of good repute, like where showers are concerned. By doing so you’ll be addressing the four important points discussed above, namely affordability and value for money, durability, safety and options, plus you’ll also benefit from the peace of mind that accompanies knowing that you’ve bought a new shower or stairlift that will serve you well for many years, one that is safe and has been selected by making the most of the options that are available to you.
