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.

And that’s where something like the shower bath comes into its own. Designed to maximise floor space 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.


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.

The 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.

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.

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 – such is the growing interest in this form of dual bathing.

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.

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.

In other words, here at Bella Bathrooms we really can’t think of one single negative thing to say about the shower bath and can understand why many designers say it’s here to stay.
