With the right know-how, a smaller bathroom can be just as stylish as something larger. Whether it’s a small en-suite, a loft conversion with a sloped ceiling or a downstairs cloakroom, a small bathroom can be made stylish and sleek with a few nifty tricks. Having a smaller space to work with definitely doesn’t limit your options for a shower - we’ve got the lowdown on the best showers for small bathrooms to help you maximise your space without compromising on style.
Small Shower Enclosures
Small shower enclosures slot into smaller bathrooms perfectly, and being small certainly doesn’t make them any less stylish. Small enclosures do what they say on the tin, they cater to smaller spaces. There’s a few different types however, so it’s worth putting some time into figuring out how much space you have available to ensure you choose the right small shower enclosure for your bathroom.
Corner Shower Enclosures
Corner enclosures are the perfect space saver, fitting snugly into virtually any size bathroom. There’s a variety of corner enclosures out there, in a number of different shapes and sizes, but if you’re really looking to maximise bathroom space a square enclosure is your best bet. Take a look at our full range of corner shower enclosures for smaller bathrooms here.
Quadrant Shower Enclosures
These types of enclosures give a wonderfully modern feel without taking up too much space. With clean curves and often a surprising amount of internal space, quadrant enclosures can feel slightly roomier than rectangular or square counterparts. Quad shower enclosures also work best positioned in corners, meaning they too are an ideal shower for small bathrooms and will ensure your space feels as luxurious as possible. These enclosures look great in virtually any style of bathroom, although we love it paired with more modern décor.
Walk-In Shower Enclosures
When shopping for a shower for a small bathroom, you may not initially think of a walk-in shower. However, we’re keen to show you that the right walk-in shower can look great in a smaller space. Firstly, walk-in shower enclosures are usually frameless which will make the room look bigger, as the shower appears simply an extension of the room. Plus, virtually any size of shower glass can be combined with a simple wet room tray to create a stylish and modern walk-in shower, as small or as large as you like!
Small Shower Kits
Buying a complete shower kit is a great way to save not only time, but also money. For smaller bathrooms, it’s a good idea to invest in a slightly more luxurious shower kit to make up for the lack of space. We have a wide range of kits available which work great in smaller bathrooms, helping you to enjoy your shower no matter how big your bathroom.
Slide rails are usually the cheapest option when it comes to shower kits, and work great in smaller showers. They can be purchased in a wide range of designs to match your bathroom décor, whether that’s vintage or modern.
Slimline Shower Trays
Slimline shower trays are another way to ensure your shower takes up as little space as possible, and can be combined with a beautiful glass panel to create the perfect minimalist walk-in shower.
While shopping for low profile shower trays it’s important to be mindful of the quality as the tray will see a lot of footfall and therefore needs to be durable. We have a selection of shower trays that are made from 100% natural stone resin for durability. Available in a range of sizes, it’s easy to slot our shower trays into any small bathroom for that ultra-minimalist look.
Fixed Shower Heads
For a beautifully minimalist look, a fixed shower head can work super well in a small shower. These shower heads take up limited space, provide that luxurious waterfall feel we all love and have a sleek style. Our fixed heads are available in a range of finishes, from chrome to matt black and brushed brass.
Mini Shower Kits
Those of you who are really limited on space may consider a mini shower kit. While these make a great addition to any normal shower, if you’re really in space-saving mode, you might opt for a standalone shower handset.
You may feel like your options are limited when it comes to small showers for small bathrooms, but we hope this post has assured you that there is a huge range of options available. Optimising your space using a variety of fixtures specifically designed for smaller spaces means you have the freedom to be a little more creative, while still keeping that luxurious bathroom feel.
