Choosing the right style of shower enclosure to suit your bathroom is an important element to get right. Shower enclosures are now available in a wide variety of styles and sizes than ever before, and the right one can create a stunning statement in your bathroom.
Wet room glass panels
Wet room glass panels are ideal for achieving a sleek, minimalistic look and protect your bathroom from getting covered in water every time you take a shower.
One of the main advantages of creating a wet room style bathroom is that you can make the shower area to whatever size you require as you are not restricted to the shape and size of a shower tray. Wet room glass panels still provide the room with an open plan look, and they can be fitted direct to the floor or can be installed onto a low profile shower tray.
Wet room glass panels are available in a variety of sizes and can be used individually or you can combine them together to form a more enclosed showering space.
Walk in shower enclosures
If you want to create a minimal feel to your bathroom consider opting for a walk in shower enclosure to provide you with a spacious showering area and to add some designer style. Walk in showers are becoming an increasingly popular choice for replacing an existing bath and are great for people who lead busy lifestyles as they offer a really convenient showering solution. If you have a small bathroom a walk in shower enclosure will help to enhance a feeling of space and provide the room with a focal point.
Quadrant shower enclosures
Quadrant shower enclosures are a great way to maximise space in a small bathroom as they feature a curved front and fit right into the corner of the bathroom helping you to make the most of the available room, if space is really tight make sure you opt for one with sliding doors so no extra room is required. Quadrant shower enclosures range in size from 800mm to a spacious 1200x900mm offset style, they can also feature a framed or semi-frameless design.
Bi-fold shower doors
Bi-fold shower doors are also a good choice for a bathroom with limited space as the entire door folds back on itself, meaning that no valuable room is being taken up to allow for the door to open up into the bathroom. Bi-fold shower doors are available in a range of sizes and can be installed into a recess or can be combined with a side panel.
Sliding shower doors
Sliding shower door enclosures feature plenty of showering space too and are ideal for a more spacious bathroom or in a small bathroom if you want to replace the bath. Sliding shower door enclosures feature two panels of glass, with one sliding back into the other to allow for easy access in and out of the shower. A sliding shower door can be fitted into a recess or installed with a side panel.
Pivot shower doors
A pivot or hinged shower door is great for providing a neat look to your bathroom and if installed into a recess so the door is the only glass panel on show will create a sleek, stylish feel. Pivot shower doors open outwards so check that there is enough space in your bathroom to allow for the door to open fully.
