What should you consider when choosing a shower enclosure?
What type of bathroom do you have?
Your bathroom’s size and configuration may determine the type of shower enclosure you choose. For example, a corner-entry shower enclosure saves space in small bathrooms and ensuites. In a family bathroom, you might want a more spacious design or a walk-in shower for accessibility.
How much space do you have?
Another vital consideration is which way the shower door will open and whether this will impact the placement of other fixtures like the sink or the toilet. We recommend measuring the available space to ensure you have enough room to comfortably get in and out of the shower.
Doors or panels?
Shower doors can either slide, fold, hinge or pivot open. Sliding or bi-fold doors are best for small bathrooms as they open inwards. Pivot and hinged doors open outwards, so they’re better for larger bathrooms. Most showers are fully enclosed on all sides, but you may prefer a single glass panel to create an open design, like a walk-in shower.
What types of shower enclosures are available?
We stock a range of shower enclosures to suit every bathroom, including corner, quadrant, pentagon and walk-in options. We use top of the line materials, made in the USA, to ensure your glass enclosures are built to last.
Walk-in showers and wet rooms
Walk-in shower enclosures and wet rooms are stylish and popular options for large, contemporary bathrooms. A walk-in shower features a tray and glass divider panel, while a wet room is fully waterproof and has a floor drain.
Corner entry shower enclosures are one of the most popular choices for bathrooms of any size. They come in square or rectangular configurations and usually have bi-fold doors.
Pentagon shower enclosures
Like a corner shower, pentagon shower enclosures can fit snugly into awkward or unused spaces, making them ideal for small bathrooms. Their five-sided design makes them a unique feature. They typically come with bi-fold or pivot doors.
Quadrant shower enclosures
Quadrant shower enclosures feature a stylish curved front with sliding doors for easy entry. They are another space-saving option for small bathrooms, fitting neatly into a corner.
What types of shower doors are available?
Customize your shower enclosure with the right shower doors. Whether you have plenty of room or need space-saving solutions, we offer shower doors in various sizes and configurations, including bi-fold, hinged, pivot and sliding doors.
Bi-fold shower doors
Bi-fold shower doors are inward-opening to maximize space. Their clever design makes them ideal in ensuites or small bathrooms.
Hinged shower doors
Hinged shower doors are best in spacious bathrooms because they open outwards, so you’ll need to leave plenty of space around the shower enclosure.
Pivot shower doors
Like hinged designs, pivot shower doors open outwards, so they’re best for large bathrooms with no obstructions. They have pivotal connection points on the top and bottom of the door rather than folding hinges.
Sliding shower doors
Sliding shower doors are a space-saving option, as the door slides along tracks inside the enclosure, providing a wide entrance. Unlike a hinged design, you won’t need additional room to open the door. Choose sliding shower doors for corner-entry, quadrant or pentagon enclosures.
We also offer bathtub enclosure configurations and custom designs to fit any space and style preferences! We design all enclosures using state of the art CAD software, allowing us to avoid outsourcing to third party vendors. Our company only sources glass and hardware from founders and leaders in the industry. We use HD hinges standard on all of our custom glass doors – up to 36”, this above the traditional standard of 28”. Each design comes with a 5 year parts and labor warranty, and we strive to complete each project within a 3 week timeframe, so you can start enjoying your newly installed bathroom glass as soon as possible.
