A new shower room is a great way to create an extra bathroom with a shower, toilet and basin and it’ll come in really useful on those busy weekday mornings, and when you have guests visiting.

A shower room can be fitted in the smallest of spaces, and you really don’t require a lot of space to install a shower, toilet and basin thanks to all the space saving products that are now available. When planning and designing your new shower room make sure to measure the available space accurately and check your measurements again and again.

Also, think about the look that you want to create, and look around for plenty of ideas and inspiration. Shower rooms can provide you with somewhere to have a quick shower to freshen up, or alternatively can be turned into your own personal sanctuary where you can have an indulgent shower to really relax and rejuvenate your senses.

Which shower enclosure is best?

Shower enclosures come in a wide variety of styles and sizes including space saving quadrant enclosures, sliding shower doors, bi-fold shower doors, pivot doors, walk in shower enclosures and wetroom glass panels so you can be sure to find the right fit for the space you have.

Walk in showers are a very popular choice for a new shower room as they provide a modern look and feature a sleek, minimal design, which will help to create a sense of space in a small room. Walk in showers also offer easy access as they feature one end which is open to the bathroom with the opposite end being a spacious showering area.

Quadrant shower enclosures

A shower room with limited space can be turned into a cosy and inviting room, and by choosing the right style of shower enclosure you can maximise the available room. Quadrant shower enclosures are great for small spaces as they feature a curved front which will create more floor space, most feature sliding doors so you don’t have to worry about any valuable room being taken up to allow for the door opening.


Creating a wetroom style shower room is also another great way to create a bright and airy feel in a small space and will certainly add a stylish focal point to your home. Wetroom glass screens are the best solution for protecting everything in your bathroom from getting covered in water every time you take a shower.

A wetroom glass screen stills create a sense of space and they are available in a variety of sizes. One of the main advantages of creating a wetroom is that you can create the shower area to whatever size you require as you are not limited to the size of a shower tray.

Compact basins & toilets

When choosing a sink and toilet for your shower room make sure that they fit in with the style of the room. If you are limited for space look out for toilets with shorter projections than standard, and wall-hung versions are also ideal too for creating maximum floor space. Including some storage such as a bathroom cabinet provides you with somewhere to store your toiletries out of sight for a tidy and organised shower room.
