Shower Doors for Different Spaces
Showers are becoming a central feature in many of today’s bathrooms, especially smaller rooms where baths are not an option. People are demanding more of their showers, and want the ultimate experience in function, practicality and style.
Choosing the right shower door really depends on the type of shower you are installing; the decision ideally needs to be made together. There is such a colourful spectrum of showers available today that there is much to consider when finding the perfect shower for your bathroom. From walk-in showers to showers over baths, a stylish and effective door can make all the difference. The space you have available in the bathroom is also a huge deciding factor, where the shape of the floor plan may decide the option of shower door for you.
For smaller bathrooms and en-suites, there may be a limited option of doors available for your shower. These are practical and effective at ensuring you have a premier shower experience in the tight space you have. In larger bathrooms, you will probably use the shower enclosure as a feature in the design of the room and therefore may opt for a more ornamental door element.
For Small Bathrooms
For showers in small bathrooms and en-suites, you will want to utilize what space you do have, therefore we recommend choosing a sliding or bi-fold door. A smooth gliding shower door is the epitome of minimalism, while creating the largest showering space possible in a small room. Sliding doors are ideal for all shapes and sizes of shower enclosures and really complete the sleek style of the bathroom. Choose from a variety of styles where you can have one large door or two or three sliding panels.
The next option which is ideal for a smaller room is the bi-fold shower door. These doors fold in on themselves, so once again do not protrude outside of the shower area into the precious open space. The flexible doors can be fitted to almost any shower enclosure, including those in tight corners.
For Large Bathrooms
If you have the luxury of a larger bathroom where space can be sacrificed, then there are a variety of options for your shower enclosure and the door element. Pivot and hinged doors are a sleek choice to add contemporary chic to the bathroom and an aura of luxury. Alternatively, if you have the space why not implement an extravagant walk-in shower which wouldn’t need any door at all.
A pivot door can be installed into a shower enclosure in the centre of a bathroom or against a wall. It can be purchased as a singular element and attached to a wall rather than an enclosure too. Create an extra area ready for indulgence by choosing a stylish pivot shower door.
Hinged doors are very similar to pivot doors but have a few added design advantages. For a safe and assured showering experience, a hinged door will click when it is closed properly, ensuring there is no water leaking from the enclosure. They are also available in a frame or frameless design, to compliment all bathroom styles, and you can choose hinges to match the rest of your bathroom features.
