Shower Baths

With the trend for single living and smaller houses these days together with the desire for more bedroom en-suites it’s no surprise really to see that the size of the main bathroom in the average British household is becoming smaller every decade. Bathroom design is improving all the time to bring space saving solutions for the smallest of bathrooms.


And that’s where something like the shower bath comes into its own. Designed to maximise floor space in your bathroom this clever combination bath and shower (or rather extended bath with shower and glass partition) pleases both the bath lover and the shower fanatic and ultimately provides delighted householders with the best of both worlds.

View our large range of shower baths here at Bella Bathrooms which includes the popular P shaped design of shower bath which provides you with a slightly larger area to accommodate the shower unit. If you love your bath but are desperate to have a shower too these are the ideal solution.

How does the Shower Bath work?

It’s simple really. A glass screen is attached onto the P or L shaped area of the bath which is widened to include more room for showering. The extended area of the bath can be either left handed or right handed depending on the design of the bathroom. These baths will offer you flexibility for bathing for all of the family.

The baths screen can be opened when bathing or closed for showering purposes if a hinged screen is installed. The shower itself is attached to the bathroom wall adjacent to the toughened glass shower screen and easily within reach. Choose shower mixer taps to create the perfect accessory to these baths and keep your bathroom working perfectly.

What are the Advantages of a Shower Bath?


As well as helping out in terms of space in the bathroom, the shower bath also helps when it comes to household expenses because this type of combination item works out a lot less expensive than buying a bath and shower separately. There is a lot more cost involved in separate showers and baths due to the additional shower tray and enclosure required plus you might need two lots of taps too which all adds up.

More design styles in Shower Baths available

Originally the shower bath was referred to as the P-Shape Shower Bath but today that moniker is no longer relevant since it’s also possible to obtain an L-shaped Shower Bath and other styles of baths – such is the growing interest in this form of dual bathing. These different shape baths help you to best suit any bathroom design.

Shapes of Shower Baths

Not all shower baths are equal and if you’re looking for something a bit quirky for your bathroom then the Vitra Delphi Shower Bath has an unusual figure of eight shape which even looks fun. The same manufacturer’s Neon Spacesaver Bath is cut away at one end, giving it more of a triangular shape and allows for a bath and shower combination in an unusually shaped or narrow bathroom.

Moods have a range of luxury Supercast shower baths with waterproof wood veneer panelling such as natural oak, walnut and beech and designed to co-ordinate with other Moods bathroom furniture ranges. Match these baths with similar styled taps to create a truly unique look for your bathroom. No matter what shape or style bathroom you have our range of shower baths will have one to fit the bill!

The bath with benefits

One thing’s for sure with the shower bath, it won’t matter if you get into the bath and realise you only have time for a shower instead – or vice versa – for it’ll just be a matter of switching around within seconds and without getting the bathroom floor wet. The shower bath is also a great way of having a bath and washing your hair at the same time as the shower handle can often be brought down to bath level. If you have a mixer shower then the shower bath mixer taps have this accessory included to again improve the cost associated with these baths.
