A small shower tray is ideal for an additional shower room whilst a generous rectangular shower tray will help you create a larger showering space in a family bathroom.

There are also a range of different finishes on the shower trays from pearlstone resin to gel coating to ensure your shower tray is not only a stylish addition to your bathroom but is also a durable tray too. Here is a rundown on the different shower trays to choose from;
The rectangular shower tray covers a larger floor area allowing for a much more generous showering area and tends to be more suited for larger bathrooms and wet rooms. A walk in shower tray is becoming a more popular choice for modern bathrooms.
A Quadrant tray comprises two straight edges with a curve to the front making it an excellent choice for smaller space-compromised bathrooms. The curved front also provides slightly more space within an enclosure than a square shower tray would giving you a more generous showering area.
If space-saving isn’t a necessity for a corner shower unit in your bathroom then an offset quadrant can prove ideal. This is because it’s just as stylish, but roomier than a quadrant tray. It also comes in a range of shower tray sizes together with left and right handed options so that it can best fit your bathroom space.
The most popular shape of tray on the market today, the square version is available in a wide range of shower tray sizes, from 700mm x 700mm all the way up to 1000mm x 1000mm. Square shower trays can be adapted to fit in corners, recesses, alcoves and even to form a central piece. From small to large bathrooms, this is the shower tray you’ll more commonly find.

These minimalist style trays are in keeping with more modern trends and are gradually replacing older and standard versions in most bathrooms today. This style of shower tray is as close to having a wet room feeling whilst still keeping the excess water contained within a shower tray. Low profile shower trays are becoming more popular as people aim to create contemporary style bathrooms.
Standard trays have a height of around 80mm (compared to 45mm for low profile) and are still popular in many bathrooms today. Standard shower trays can still come in a variety of different styles and shapes to suit your bathroom. You will be surprised at the range of standard shower trays available that will suit any bathroom style.
In addition to low profile and standard height trays here at Bella Bathrooms we also stock kits from a number of respected bathroom manufacturers which are designed to increase the height of your bathroom shower tray. This has the advantage of making plumbing far easier due to the fact that it provides additional space for pipework beneath the trays.
