It’s always worth going for the biggest shower
enclosure and tray you can fit into your
bathroom and of course, afford. It will add
value to your property and provide much
more comfort and space to manoeuvre.
Shower Enclosures and Trays
Apart from being the latest in style and luxury, shower
enclosures are very practical.
Go for simple slick looking pieces rather than doors with lots
of detail as this can look fussy, especially in a small space.
A chrome finish looks more contemporary than white and
clear glass in a shower door will make a room appear larger
and more up-to-date.
Before you select your enclosure, you should be aware that
it’s common practice for shower enclosure walls to be tiled
down to the rim of the tray top. Please check that this is
the case with your shower tray installation. Tubs & Tiles
shower doors are sized to fit openings to suit tray top rim
dimensions, which are slightly less than the normal tray
size quoted in the specifications.
When choosing a shower tray, you should consider a tray with
an ‘up stand’. Trays with an ‘up stand’ have a small lip around
the tray which you can tile over. This ensures a watertight
finish. Traditional flat top shower trays can be prone to
leaking where the tiles or shower panel meets the tray.
