Are Bow Sliding Door Shower Trays The Right Choice For Your Design?


Space plays such an important role in the shower tray choices you have available. Most of us don’t enjoy the benefit of a spacious bathroom, which means we are very restricted on space and need to find ways to make the most of the floor space we have available.

Bow sliding door shower trays are my top choice for smaller bathrooms. They fit well against the wall and enjoy a beautiful curved front which adds an elegant finish to a beautiful design. The bow sliding door shower trays use a sliding door which means the door doesn’t swing open and take up space but rather glides open leaving a large opening when getting in and out of the shower.

Choosing Your Shower Tray

Start with a bathroom layout that includes all the measurements of the space from wall to wall, this is a good indicator to work to when choosing all your bathroom items.

You can use the bathroom layout to choose where to place your shower and what size shower tray will work best in the space you have available. The bow sliding door shower trays are square in design with a curved front which fits into any bathroom design with ease and offers ample showering space.

Maximise the Space

The bathroom layout you have drawn up will become your favourite piece of paper it will help you determine exactly how much space you have between your shower and other bathroom items. It will help you determine if the bow sliding door shower trays are the best choice for your design, bearing in mind you won’t have any doors swinging open and bashing into other bathroom products.

A Modern and Stylish Finish

All modern bathrooms have wonderful clean lines and that is why I recommend the bow sliding door shower trays for any bathroom. While they have the curved front, it’s a welcome addition on top of all the straight edges. Bear in mind these trays are square so they will still blend in with your other bathroom products with ease.

Why Choose Bow Sliding Door Shower Trays For Your Bathroom


There is one serious consideration you always have to take into account when choosing a shower tray and that is the space you have available. In many cases we are restricted as to what bathroom products we can use in our bathrooms because we are fighting with a smaller bathroom, but this doesn’t mean you can’t find a stylish and elegantly designed shower tray to give your bathroom a luxurious feel.

This is why for many smaller bathrooms I choose bow sliding door shower trays, firstly they fit neatly against a wall, then there is the advantage of the rounded front which gives a stylish and elegant look, followed by the fact that the sliding doors don’t need space to open unlike some of the other shower doors, so you don’t have to worry if anything is going to get in their way.

How to Choose

My first suggestion to anyone who is thinking of adding a shower to their bathroom is to do a bathroom layout, take your measurements and have a good idea on the space you have available to install your shower.

From here you can decide exactly how to position your shower, for showers that are to be placed with a wall on one or two sides the bow sliding door shower trays are a wonderful addition to the bathroom.

The bow sliding door shower trays are square, but the front is a wonderful rounded design that give it that stylish finish.

Make the Most of the Space

Your next step is to determine how much space you have between your new shower and other bathroom products. The sliding door design ensures that you won’t end up with a door that pivots open and gets obstructed by other bathroom products.

As you can imagine with pivot door designs you need space for the door to open completely, with the bow sliding door shower trays you won’t have this problem as the doors slide neatly without the need to pivot open. What this means is that you can enjoy the full opening making it easy getting into and out of the shower.

Modern and Stylish

When remodelling a modern bathroom you want clean lines, stylish designs and a modern finish, you want your bow sliding door shower trays to enhance your bathroom space. If you have chosen a rounded toilet and basin, then these shower trays will blend in beautifully completing the perfect bathroom picture.
