You’ve decided on the look you’re going for in your bathroom, as well as what kind of shower to get. Now it’s time to decide on an enclosure and tray – the frame and base of your shower.
Choosing your shower enclosure and tray is not just about complementing the choices you’ve made in regards to design, or the type of shower you’ve selected: you also need to think about the space you have to play with. If you’ve got a smaller bathroom, choosing a more compact enclosure which can fit in a corner is probably going to be the best choice for you, while bigger bathrooms can explore a larger enclosure that can have a large door opening out.
Let us help you by taking you through all the elements you need to think about when buying shower enclosure and tray, before showing you some of the options from our wide and varied range.
When shopping for shower enclosures and trays, you may notice them being referred to as ”left handed” or “right handed” (except for square enclosures). Once you’ve worked out where you’d like your shower, stand with your back to the corner. If the door’s going to open on your left-hand side then you need a left-handed enclosure. If it’s going to be on the right hand side – it’s a right-handed enclosure. Remember to think about where the windows and doors are in the room, as well as any obstructions. This should help you make the best choice.

When choosing your frame, think about where you’re going to place the shower in your bathroom. All designs can be placed into a corner, with the square or quadrant options taking up the least floor space. Later on, you’ll need to consider the ideal door choice for the room, but for now, focus on the size and shape of your ideal enclosure.
All of our shower enclosures are made from toughened safety glass and mainly come in 2 thicknesses; 6mm and 8mm. Surely, 4mm and 10mm are available if necessary.
