One of the most important things to consider when creating your perfect shower enclosure is the size.
Getting the right size shower enclosure is significant for a number of reasons.
Perhaps the most obvious is practicality. If you’re tight on bathroom space, a small shower enclosure may well be your best bet as a larger enclosure could take up most of the room, leaving little space for other bathroom essentials.
On the flip side, a shower enclosure that is too small for your bathroom can prevent your home from reaching its full potential.
Size can also affect the type of shower enclosure you wish to install. If you have lots of space to deal with, your shower enclosure possibilities are going to be more varied. You’ll be able to embark on the possibility of a walk-in shower enclosure, a large shower enclosure and potentially a shower wall and wet room.
Buy a Shower Enclosure That Is Bespoke to Your Bathroom’s Shape
The next thing to consider when buying a shower enclosure is the shape. The shape is important as it dramatically affects your bathroom’s appearance, and also the way you logistically use your bathroom.
To get the best out of your shower experience, and your bathroom experience as a whole, it is paramount to get the right shape of the shower enclosure.
Of course, getting the right shower enclosure for your home will be largely circumstantial.
But as a rule of thumb, if you’re looking to utilise a corner space, we recommend using a quadrant shower enclosure, as they are able to offer adequate space for showering but also save bathroom space when necessary.
On the other hand, if your bathroom has a comfortable amount of space, we recommend treating yourself to something bigger, such as a large shower enclosure, a wet room, or even a walk-in shower enclosure.
The shower enclosure you choose for your home will be largely dependent on the shape of your bathroom, so pay careful attention when choosing the one you want for your home.
The Simple Beauty of Shower Enclosure Style
Once the size and shape of your shower enclosure have been chosen, you’re now in a position to look at the style of it. Naturally, shower enclosures are associated with modern bathrooms, but there are instances where traditionally styled enclosure’s work just as well.
Instead of drawing attention directly to itself, shower enclosures are often designed to pay tribute to other features like the shower, and thermostatic valve. However, the shower enclosure style is still something that should be taken into consideration if you’re looking to maximise bathroom potential.
If you’re looking to create an ultra-modern look, then we recommend looking for our frameless shower enclosures, or even our walk-in shower enclosures. This particular style really embodies a minimal and modern look and will be able to continue the already modern theme of your bathroom.
On the other hand, if you’re looking for something a little more traditional, Burlington showers are perhaps your best bet. They have created a range of shower enclosure which slides wonderfully into a traditionally designed bathroom.
We have a range of styles of shower enclosure here at Bathroom City so we’re confident we’ll be able to find the right ones for your home.
Upstairs or Downstairs?
Whether your shower enclosure is positioned upstairs or downstairs can affect the process of the installation. If you wish to install your shower enclosure on a concrete floor, you may be forced to raise your shower enclosure when installing it. The reason for doing this will be based around installing the pipes that lie underneath it. It is very difficult to install pipes underneath a concrete floor, so it is recommendable to raise the shower tray instead.

Available in a wealth of styles, choosing a shower side panel depends purely on the shower door that you choose, taking into consideration the size, brand and compatibility.

For example, if you choose the Elation sliding shower door from Aquadart and would like the corresponding shower side panel to fit it into the corner of your installation, then simply find the Elation Side Shower Panel in the Shower Side Panels category and select the appropriate height using the drop-down menu.
All you have to do then is choose your shower tray and you will have created your desired shower enclosure, perfect for the corner of your bathroom suite.
