There are various types of shower enclosure available that will suit different areas. In tight spaces, notably corners, a quadrant shower enclosure with sliding shower doors is ideal especially for small bathrooms or an en suite.

The Frameless enclosure creates a distinct feature whilst offering the best you could want in terms of shower enclosure manufacturing.

A sleek and compact hinged shower enclosure is ideal for contemporary bathrooms, especially as a chrome bar handle is used to complete the ultra-modern shower enclosures designer look. Hinged shower doors is minimally styled to maintain a light, open and airy feel. Like the Frameless option the hinged shower door enclosure also creates a distinct feature whilst offering the best you could want in terms of shower enclosure manufacturing.

Sliding door shower enclosures are ideal for saving space in any bathroom and are easy to manoeuvre so getting in and out of the shower is effortless. The Frameless sliding shower door with clear glass is ideal for those looking for a light and open feel to the bathroom.

Pivot shower doors are probably the most common type of shower door available. They are either right, left or centre pivoted and the type of hinge used depends on the shape and configuration of the bathroom. Most pivot doors open outwards away from the shower so it’s always important to consider where the rest of your bathroom suite will be before deciding on a configuration. The Pivot Shower Door and Pivot Shower Enclosure are also available with frosted glass, a great chrome finish and a universal handed door, making a good choice for this type of shower enclosure.

Bi-fold shower door enclosures are good space saving options, as the doors concertina – so there’s less space needed for them to open out. The Bifold shower door 760, for example, is a great space saving shower range. As the door folds within the shower area, it reduces the clearance space that is required at the opening of the shower enclosure.

A freestanding bath can be placed anywhere in the bathroom but you may have to consult a plumber as to whether the plumbing would be accessible. They come in all shapes, sizes and materials.

Shower baths are extremely functional and offer a little bit of something for everyone. Shaped like a normal bath but with extra room at one end for showering, usually coming with a shower screen, they are ideal for family homes.

Whirlpool and spa baths inspire tranquillity and relaxation with body jets throughout to give you an all over body massage. You can get them as complex or simple as you want, but (generally) the more expensive the better the bathing experience.
