Your Space


Finding the right positioning, shape and design for your shower

Think about your space and consider all of the options

While it might seem daunting, getting your bathroom layout right from the start will help you achieve the best possible finished installation.

When designing your bathroom, think about the main features you need in the space and how these will all work together. Are the current fittings in the ideal position or would they benefit from being relocated? Is the door to the space in the ideal position or would it be better to open another way or even be a slider door?

You should also consider the different positions for the shower and how you might want to access it. 

It’s worth bearing in mind that your needs may change in the future so coming up with a future-proof design is useful.

A shape for every space

We have a vast selection of shower enclosures and wetrooms to fit every kind of space; from square to rectangle, alcove to quadrant and more. Wetrooms work just as well in small or large and are becoming increasingly popular. Within shower enclosures, you can choose from the following options:

For each of our shower tray options, there are various door options to offer the best entry and exit to your shower area, maximising the use of your space. Choose from slider doors, pivot doors, hinge doors, bi-fold doors or opt for a glass panel surrounding for those seeking a minimalist design.

Measure and Draw

Measure your bathroom as accurately as possible including all the features that need to be taken into consideration, such as windows, ceiling heights, door position, widths and location of existing pipework. It can help to make up to-scale shapes of the main elements of your bathroom and rearrange them until you find a layout that works best for you. Remember to keep plenty of space between the elements and consider how the room will work if more than one person will use it at one time.

Remember ventilation 

Ensure you have made allowance for good ventilation to avoid excess steam building up in your bathroom. An open window alone is usually not enough.
