5 Top Tips for Choosing Your Perfect Shower Enclosure

3 April 2019

Having a shower enclosure is a great way to make the most of your bathroom, whatever size it might be. Here are some things to consider when choosing one that’s right for you.


Where you position your shower enclosure depends very much on the space you have to play with. Corner shower units like this maximise available floor space in a small bathroom or ensuite whereas shower panels can be used if you’re dedicating a whole wall to your enclosure.


You need to think of the needs of the people using the shower before you decide how large or small to make it. If it’s just used for quick 5-minute showers of a morning and night, then smaller enclosures like this are fine. If it’s going to be used by someone with mobility issues, for instance, then the more generous proportions of a wet room might serve you better.


Choosing a curved, rectangular, or square shower enclosure isn’t just an aesthetic choice as, once again, it’s all about floor space. A curved shower tray and enclosure actually saves you a lot of room, compared to the same dimensions squared off.
