Which Shower Tray to Choose?

Average Reading Time: 3 Minutes

When it comes to shower trays it may seem impossible to get your head around all the options you have available from different shapes, sizes and shower tray materials (we like to spoil you at soak.com) but it’s actually pretty simple! Read on and you’ll find out...

Different types of shower trays - quadrant grey shower tray


Shower tray materials

Most shower trays are finished with smooth white acrylic which makes them look stylish and contemporary, comfortable to use and of course, easy to clean.

We also have shower trays that are made using stone resin, which is a material that mimics the appearance and durability of natural stone. By using stone resin, shower trays are built to last and they hold their rigidity.

If they don’t take your fancy, we also offer PU shower trays which are lightweight without compromising on strength. On top of all that, they are also great value – yay!

Shower tray colours 

We don’t just do shower trays in white – we know you want more choice than that. We’ve also got grey and slate effect shower trays, cream shower trays and black shower trays thrown into the mix. And if you do want white (why not, it’s a classic and looks great in any bathroom) we have different shapes, sizes and white shower tray materials to choose from!

Shower tray shapes and sizes 


Quadrant shower trays 

Quadrant shower trays are built to fit a quadrant shower enclosure. This means they feature a curved design that can fit snugly into the corner of your bathroom. Quadrant trays are ideal if you need to maximise space, as they will give you more room to manoeuvre in the shower.

Offset quadrant shower trays

Offset quadrant shower trays are similar to quadrant shower trays in that they are designed to fit the corner of a bathroom. However, they are longer in shape with a rounder corner. If you have a little more room but are still looking to maximise space with a curved, contemporary design, offset quadrant shower trays may be just what you’re looking for. 

Rectangular shower trays 

Rectangular shower trays are designed to fit rectangular shower enclosures. This type of shower tray will allow you room to manoeuvre and are well suited to shower enclosures that use sliding shower doors.
