Average Reading Time: 3 Minutes

Which is the best shower enclosure for you?  Depending on the size of your bathroom and whether your shower is small, large or ready to walk straight into, there are lots of options!  

Side panel shower enclosure


Here we go through the numerous shower enclosure options to suit your personal tastes and requirements, each of which will add luxury and style to your bathroom shower space.  What’s more, each of our shower enclosures are manufactured from the finest materials, providing quality and durability.


Full or side panel shower enclosures

You have two options – either a full shower enclosure that is made of one or more panels to create a shower space or just a single door that, along with a shower tray, can be slotted into a pre-existing space.

A full shower enclosure creates the space to fit a shower, whereas a door can make a shower with space already available to you. Ta-dah!

Quadrant shower enclosures 

If space is at a premium in your bathroom, a quadrant shower enclosure may be the answer. Renowned within the bathroom field as being a handy space-saver with sliding doors, this is ideal for smaller bathrooms or even an en suite. We think it is a perfect way to transform a lifeless corner (and impress your guests).

Sliding door shower enclosures 

Stylish and functional in equal measures, the sliding shower door enclosure is one of the most popular on the market and it’s not hard to see why. The sliding shower door is a space-effective option that is also strong, sturdy and safe. The modern design will add some panache to your bathroom shower without being too over the top or stylised.

Bi-fold door shower enclosures

If access space is a concern in your bathroom, then listen up! A bi-fold door shower enclosure is one to strongly consider. The shower door is split in half and condenses to ensure easy access. The bi-fold design allows for the door to collapse in on itself, preventing it from opening out into the room. It is the ideal space-saving solution for those with modestly sized bathrooms or en suite showers.

Hinged & pivot door shower enclosures

Hinged & pivot shower doors are a brilliant solution for bathrooms that have a shower enclosure situated in an alcove. You can pop a pivot door slot into a specific space as it pivots at the top and the bottom of the frame. This also allows the shower door to open and close. As the pivoting pins are placed as close to the wall as they can, the opening area is usually quite generous which allows for a wide entrance size.
