Stylish Shower Enclosures for Every Home

Choosing a stylish shower enclosure can be tricky with the wide range available on the market. Opting for a shower enclosure is a great space saver for small bathrooms or a luxurious way to install a shower in a bathroom which has a separate bath tub. By reading our guide you will be better informed when it comes to choosing the perfect shower enclosure for your home.

It’s all About Space


Space is a key factor to consider when choosing a shower cubicle. There are a number of different shapes of shower tray to choose from, depending on your available space: 

• Rectangular 

• Square 

• Curved 

• Pentangle 

• Extended Pentangle 

Using a pentangle or curved shower tray will help to save space in a small bathroom.

You also need to think about which type of enclosure door you’re opting for and which way it will open – obviously in a small bathroom you’ll need to opt for a sliding or bi-fold door, but it’s also possible to find inward opening doors and pivot or corner entry shower enclosure doors.

Using a frameless shower cubicle can also help to make your bathroom seem larger.

Think About Shape


There are different shapes of enclosure to choose from too:

• Corner entry – ideal for smaller bathrooms this cubicle is fitted in the corner of the bathroom or shower room with the door usually opening into the centre of the room.

• Pentagon - a pentagon design is created to make the most out of a small corner space and offers a larger cubicle for luxurious showering

• Quadrant – for a stylish alternative to a square shower enclosure, a curved quadrant enclosure usually offers sliding doors and a variety of different shapes and sizes of shower tray – this makes the most of available space.

A normal standard size for a shower enclosure is 2000 mm x 1000 mm. If you are looking for a new shower enclosure tak correct measurements to ensure that you have enough space to fit it in. 

Finishing Touches


Of course, you can add various finishing touches to your shower enclosure, whether you opt for decorative glass panels, massage jets or even an aromatherapy system or in-built sound system. It’s possible to create a really luxurious shower experience.

You could even opt for a wet room or walk-in shower enclosure which adds contemporary style to any bathroom and is a very popular choice for modern homes.
