Sliding Shower Door Styles
The functionality of the shower doors defines the shower enclosure, providing us with the first port of call before turning the valve and indulging in showering luxury.
With so many shower doors on offer it can be hard to choose a design that suits your installation, sometimes it’s not just about the functionality of the door, it’s about taking into account the surround features and the floor space you have available in your bathroom suite.
Once you are settled on the placement of your shower, it’s time to consider the shower door. If your installation is quite compact with little room for a hinged door to swing out into your space without touching another feature, then a sliding shower door is the perfect solution.
Sliding shower doors provide a smooth gliding mechanism that eliminates the need for any surrounding space around the showering enclosure.
Having to double up the width of the shower enclosure so that the shower door has an equal side panel to slide behind means that sliding shower door enclosures tend to be a generous width, delivering a luxurious showering experience.
With there generous proportions, sliding shower doors are particularly useful when installed in an alcove in between walls, delivering a wide shower enclosure that works brilliantly alongside other features, helping to save space and open up the floor space in large family bathrooms.
Although popular amongst customers looking to fill an alcove, sliding shower door enclosures can be coupled with a side panel for a corner installation, allowing for a more versatile solution for more routine installations.

The Benefits of Sliding Shower Enclosures
A shower can bring a whole new dimension to your bathroom suite, coupled with other sanitaryware and furniture for a complete experience.
Of course, adding a shower enclosure isn’t just a luxurious complement to your bathroom suite, it also delivers functionality beyond the call of duty, not only offering the option to shower but a secondary solution when the bathroom is busy at peak times of use.
When we make the decision to buy a shower, the first thing we take into account is the shower door.
The type of shower door can massively impact the functionality and dynamics of the bathroom suite, so choosing a shower enclosure with an appropriate door can drastically alter your space.
Sliding shower enclosures offer a minimalist design that can suit compact bathroom suites as well as large family bathrooms.
A sliding shower enclosure utilises a sliding shower door, making it a great shower enclosure to save space, unlike hinged shower doors which require space around the exterior of the shower for the door to swing out into, a sliding shower enclosure’s functionality is self-contained.
With such a versatile design, sliding shower enclosures work well as stand-alone complete corner installations or as recessed solutions that tuck neatly into alcoves.
