I can’t count how many times I have been asked the question, what shower tray should I add to my en-suite bathroom? On a whole en-suite bathrooms are smaller than the family bathroom and the most logical choice is to add a shower rather than a bath to make the most of the space you have available.
En-suite bathrooms can be done really well giving a sense of space and luxury, but there are a few things you need to pay close attention to and one of these is the shower tray you choose.
Personally I always choose the quadrant shower trays for en-suite bathrooms and I’m going to explain why. When working with a smaller space you want a shower tray that will fit into a corner space with ease. While the tray may fit in the corner, the rounded edge of the quadrant shower trays gives these a luxurious and smooth design which can be carried throughout the bathroom.
Very seldom are squared shower trays luxurious enough for an en-suite, because your bathroom is already a smaller size, there is no reason to reduce the amount of luxury that you get to enjoy.
Another advantage of the quadrant shower trays is the space they provide, because of their rounded shape they offer plenty of room to move around in the shower. There is nothing worse than having a shower that is so small you cannot move once you close the shower door.
Once you have chosen your quadrant shower tray you will need to choose your other bathroom products to blend in with the tray and still enhance the bathrooms pace. Before we go any further, I always suggest a really light colour, white is best in smaller bathrooms because it gives a sense of space.
White, glass and plenty of light is the recipe for a spacious bathroom no matter how small your bathroom is, you can add splashes of colour with towels, blinds and candles, but keep your actual bathroom products, walls and floors as light as possible.
With the rounded edge of the quadrant shower trays you are able to find a selection of basins, toilets and taps that will blend in with the rounded design, working together in your bathroom to give it an overall smooth design that offers luxury and elegance in a small space.
