Shower enclosures are at the top of most peoples priority list when considering their new bathroom. A refreshing shower will wake you up in the morning, and gets you washed quickly and efficiently. Likewise, a warming shower helps with aching muscles after a session at the gym. It’s also perfect for the elderly or infirm who maybe can’t climb into a bath.
types of shower enclosures
There is a myriad of styles, shapes and sizes of shower enclosure available, in sizes to suit every bathroom. Not to mention walk-in showers with a fixed glass panel (no door necessary), which can either sit on a shower tray or directly onto a tiled floor. Our carefully chosen brands include Majestic, Aqata, Showerlab, Lakes Showering Spaces, and Crosswater. What’s more, they all have a full range of door styles to choose from.
shower enclosure features
Modern shower doors have many useful features, either to add style, aid cleaning, or to fit into an awkward shaped room. See below some of these features that are available on many of our enclosure ranges.
The toughened safety glass used with shower enclosures is available in 6mm, 8mm and 10mm. Additionally, most glass has a factory-applied coating which inhibits limescale buildup, and allows for easy cleaning. Glass is also available in different finishes from some manufacturers, for example:
If you have a tricky space or a sloping ceiling, you may need a bespoke shower enclosure. These are made specially to suit your space, and the glass can be cut around all sorts of obstacles. This enables you to fit in a bigger shower than you would otherwise be able to. Or even fit a shower into a space that was previously unusable. Bespoke options include:
Shower enclosures are not just chrome these days. Popular new finishes include Matt Black, Brushed Gold, Rose Gold & Matt White. This ties in with the trend for these finishes on taps & shower controls. Some manufacturers can even make your shower door in your choice of RAL colour. In addition, special finishes such as Copper or Bronze can be matched upon request.
