Walk-In Showers and Stylish Showering Solutions for any Bathroom

Walk in showers provide a great way to add sleek, contemporary style to any bathroom or en-suite. Ideal for creating a minimalistic look, a walk in shower creates an almost open plan feel to your bathroom. So, if you’re considering designing a spa-like bathroom, here’s all the information you need to help you choose the perfect shower enclosure.

What is a walk in shower enclosure?

Walk in showers do not feature any doors, unlike standard shower enclosures; this provides a stylish showering solution and helps to make the best use of space. This style of shower combines a spacious showering area at one end, while the opposite end is used for drying off, and is open to the room. So, if you love minimalist design, then a walk in shower is the perfect option for you.  Walk-In Showers and Stylish Showering Solutions for any Bathroom

Reasons to choose a walk in shower

One of the main reasons to choose a walk in shower is due to the stylish and practical design. Available in a wide range of sizes, walk in showers are easily accessible as there’s no door or step to navigate, which makes them ideal for those who are elderly or less mobile. They can also be fitted in a recess so there’s just a single glass panel on show, or with two glass panels, as well as with or without a shower tray. Low level shower trays are typically used with a walk in shower, and they can be fitted on top of the floor or flush to the floor to make access easier than ever.

Once your new walk in shower screen has been installed, you’ll be surprised at how easy it is to maintain and keep clean. As there’s no doors to worry about, you’ll only need to clean the glass panel and tray.

Thanks to the minimal design, a walk in shower can help to create a bright and open space in a smaller bathroom or en-suite. Plus if you have a bath that hardly ever gets used, this style of shower provides the ideal replacement.

One other reason to choose a walk in shower is that you can create a wet room look, but without all the associated cost and the hassle of tanking the space. Today’s walk in shower trays are so sleek and slimline, that they can be fitted into the floor to create the ultimate minimal look.

Frameless shower enclosures

A frameless shower enclosure provides another way to add sleek, streamlined style to your bathroom or en-suite, and is ideal for enhancing a sense of space. Enclosures that feature frameless designs include hinged shower doors and wet room glass panels. A wet room glass panel can be used to create a spacious walk-through showering area, which will add designer style to any bathroom.

Unlike a standard shower enclosure, a frameless enclosure does not have a metal frame to hold the glass in position, which means the glass panel needs to be strong and durable enough to provide structural support. The glass used in frameless enclosures is put through a heating process to make it stronger than the glass used in a standard framed shower enclosure, and is normally thicker too. A frameless enclosure is also a lot easier to clean than a framed model.

Shower enclosures for small bathrooms

Just because you have a small bathroom it doesn’t mean that you can’t create a luxury look. There are many shower enclosures that are perfect for small spaces such as quadrant enclosures, sliding doors and bi-fold shower doors. Frameless quadrant enclosures are ideal for small spaces as the curved front maximises floor space, and the frameless design creates a minimalistic look. A bi-fold shower door folds back on itself, which means you don’t need extra space to allow for the door to open. It’s a good idea to make use of a recess area, where you can fit a shower door and tray; the three walls of the recess form the shower enclosure. You could also fit a single glass panel and a low profile shower tray to enhance a sense of space.

Finally, complete the minimalistic look with a stylish rainfall shower head and concealed thermostatic shower valve.
