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.

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.

Shower Enclosures for the Smaller Bathroom Space


I think one of the hardest things to do is design a smaller bathroom. In a year where everyone is designing spa-inspired and luxury bathrooms, those stuck with compact bathrooms have to decide how to make the space work for them.

In a smaller bathroom environment you have to be so careful where you place your bathroom products and it’s essential you ensure that there are no products that obstruct other products. For example, if you choose a pivot or hinged shower door for a smaller bathroom, these doors could swing open and bang into your vanity or even toilet. If this happens the entry may be obstructed, this could leave you trying to squeeze into a small opening when getting in and out of your shower.

This is why when choosing shower enclosures in a small bathroom space, you should choose those that don’t swing open and there are a number of options available.

Sliding Door Shower Enclosures

The sliding door shower enclosures are one of the top choices when finding a shower door that doesn’t swing open. It helps you maximise your floor space in smaller bathrooms and they are modern and stylish in design.

The sliding door shower enclosure slides on a rail located at the top and bottom of the shower, they are easy for everyone in the family to use and reduce the risk of water leaking onto your floor while showering.

Bi-Fold Door Shower Enclosures

The bi-fold door shower enclosures are also a top choice. These shower doors also work on rail system like the sliding door shower enclosures except that they fold up, just like a concertina file.

The doors fold in towards the shower rather than out, so they don’t compromise your floor space. These shower enclosures are also sleek and stylish and blend in beautifully with any bathroom design.

Walk In Shower Enclosures

The walk in shower enclosures are a modern choice and unlike the sliding door shower enclosures, these do not have any doors but rather an opening with a lip that ensures water doesn’t leak out while showering.
