Here at Lancashire Installations, we install a range of bathroom and wetroom options. Including accessible options for people with a range of mobility issues. As a result, we understand the challenges of a small bathroom, and the compromises homeowners need to make. However, small bathrooms don’t have to be disappointing. In fact, a small bathroom can become the perfect oasis of calm and relaxation, when designed correctly. That’s why we have produced this guide to corner showers for small bathrooms.
Why choose a corner shower?
Corner showers are often more practical than a recessed shower, due to the design and layout of the bathroom itself. And as they will be installed between two pre-existing solid walls, they can be the perfect option for small bathrooms. Especially as they utilize space that would otherwise be wasted. It also means that your shower will not take up too much floor space.
Corner showers for small bathrooms
When it comes to your corner shower options, there are two key contenders, the shower quadrant, and the shower enclosure.
The shower quadrant
A shower quadrant sits in the corner of your bathroom, and uses a pane of curved glass to join between these two walls. This means that it doesn’t take up too much room, and as the door is often a sliding door, you don’t have to worry about additional space to open the door into.
The Shower enclosure
Instead of using a curved glass panel between the two walls, the shower enclosure uses two panes of glass to create a square shaped, or rectangular shaped shower. This can make for a more roomy shower, that is easier to use and more luxurious. However, it also takes up a bit more floor space when compared with the shower quadrant.
In addition, the two glass panels can use a range of door options. However, we wouldn’t recommend a hinged door for a small bathroom, due to the extra room a swinging door will need. Instead a sliding or bi-fold door should be used.
