Top Shower Choices


There are a number of popular shower options available enabling you to choose the style and design that works with your overall bathroom design. A shower shouldn’t be that inconvenience in the bathroom, but rather a bathroom item that enhances the space, blends in with the rest of your design and offers you convenience and functionality.

Smaller Bathroom Designs

Many of us have the trouble of trying to design a small bathroom. It seems that homes are being built on a smaller scale which leaves us with a small family bathroom and once you place a bath in these spaces there isn’t much room for anything else, which is why we choose showers.

In a smaller bathroom space most people choose to place the shower in the corner of the room, this way you maximise the floor space and leave ample room for all your other bathroom products. Placing the shower in the corner gives you a few options you can choose from.

The first is the quadrant design. These shower trays are specifically designed for a corner position in either a square or rectangular choice with a curved from. The enclosures you have available are also designed purely for these trays which come with sliding doors, maximising your space even further.

Quadrant Shower Enclosure

Corner Quadrant Shower Enclosure

If you’re looking for a modern design you may not like the curve of the quadrant shower trays and may choose a square or rectangular shower tray where you can add the enclosure of your choice. Placing these showers in the corner means only two sides of the shower is wall and one wall is the shower door, you have a side open where you can use shower enclosure side panels to water tight the shower and have the design that best suits your overall bathroom style.

Larger Bathrooms

If you are lucky enough to have a spacious bathroom then you have a large number of options available, you can place your shower in the corner as you would with the smaller bathroom design. Again you could use the square or rectangular shower trays, the enclosure of your choice combined with shower enclosure side panels to seal off the shower.

Another option for larger bathrooms is you can place the shower along a wall, one side will be wall, the front will be the shower door and you can use shower enclosure side panels on two sides ensuring the shower is tightly sealed and reduce the risk of leaking.

The Easy Way to Design a Shower


Shower design can be daunting, there are so many shower trays to choose from, so many enclosures and then there are a selection of shower kits, shower heads and valves. But it’s so important that you make the right choice to blend in with the overall design of your bathroom space.

Here are a few tips to help you design the perfect shower to match your overall bathroom design.

The Compact Bathroom

If you have a smaller bathroom, chances are that you have chosen a shower because a bath would overpower the space. Smaller bathrooms benefit from light and bright, so plenty of white walls, white bathroom products, glass and chrome.

The best shower choice for the smaller spaces are the quadrant showers, the trays are quadrant which fit perfectly into a corner position with a stylish curved front. Square and rectangular enclosures that fit these trays have sliding doors which don’t compromise on space and don’t leave you concerned that your shower door will swing open and bash into another of your bathroom products.

The Walk in Design

Modern bathrooms benefit from the style and elegance of a walk in shower design. These are easy to choose and you can place them in a corner or along a wall, whichever you prefer. Use the rectangular shower trays giving you more room to move around. The walk in enclosures are modern and sophisticated with panes of clear glass that allow the light to flow through with ease. The advantage to the walk in design is that there are no doors and if your enclosure doesn’t fit your rectangular shower trays, a side or inline panel will do the trick.

The Bi-Fold Design

Bi-Fold shower doors are very elegant and work beautifully in any bathroom design when combined with rectangular shower trays which offer versatility and more showering space. The rectangular shower trays can be placed in a corner or along the wall, whichever works best with your design. The bi-fold doors work as a concertina effect folding in towards the shower so they don’t take up any additional floor space.

Other Options

Some people prefer the door opening size offered by the pivot or hinged shower doors, these doors swing open so are only suitable for the larger bathroom space. Again these work beautifully when combined with rectangular shower trays and using inline panels you can easily get your enclosure to seal off reducing the risk of leaks while you shower.
