The UK is a nation of shower lovers. In fact, a daily shower is becoming much more common than a daily bath! So when you are re-designing your bathroom, or even just replacing your shower, choosing the best option for your needs is essential. Here at Lancashire Installations, we are Preston’s leading plumbing experts. And we can install a range of stunning bathrooms, suitable for any home and any style. As a result, we have produced this guide to choosing a shower enclosure.

Choosing a shower enclosure

There are a lot of shower enclosure options, that can provide a practical and comfortable showering experience. These include:

  • Quadrant showers- Designed to fit into the corner of the bathroom, the quadrant shower uses a curved front to join the space between two corner walls. So the end result can be compared to a pizza slice! This shower enclosure saves space and can be very practical. It also suits contemporary bathrooms because of the modern shape and appearance.
  • Rectangular shower enclosure- This type of shower uses up the same amount of space as a regular bath, and it can provide a larger, luxurious showering space. Built either into the corner, or the centre piece of the bathroom, the rectangular shower uses either one wall or two, and then glass screens to create a full rectangle.
  • Square shower enclosure- back to the corner with this one, the square shower uses two corner walls, and then two glass screens to make a stylish square shape in the corner of the room. This is a little roomier than the shower quadrant, because of the two glass screens rather than the curved front.
  • D shaped shower enclosure- this type of shower is a real centre piece. It is often confused with the shower quadrant, because of the curved front. However, the D shaped shower actually only uses one wall, and then a large curved front to create the shower.
